New York’s own Designer Drugs will be headlining Avalon in Hollywood this Friday night! Their much anticipated album Hardore/Softcore was just released this week so the tunes are sure to be fresh and the crowd is sure to be hyped. The DJ/producer duo traveled over 300k miles last year on tour, so if you’re lucky enough to be in LA Friday night don’t miss this dark, edgy performance. Designer Drugs’ sound is industrial, heavy, throbbing, yet still melodically pleasing.
DD’s Michael Vincent Patrick explains, “I think we’re making music for the apocalypse. The state of society is at a place where people just don’t give a fuck and that’s what inspires our music.” Normally humble, Michael adds “It gets pretty wild. Even though we’re mellow, there’s lots of stage diving and almost slam dancing. It’s next level dance club shit that almost morphs into that ‘90s hardcore/punk vibe.”
Tracks like “Through the Prism” and “Crazy for You” have the hard electro sound that’s ready for the dance floor while still being audibly accessible for possible crossover success. Especially with the latter featuring vocals by Euro-Pop star Annie. But with tracks like “Riot” and “Dead Meat” you can envision the type of rave atmosphere that Mr. Patrick describes.
I know you all will be hyped for DD, but the rage doesn’t stop there. Also on the lineup is Mustard Pimp, who have been lighting up the Hype Machine charts. They are a French electro duo signed to Dim Mak who produce new music as well as remixes. Peep their SoundCloud page.
Golden Bloggen will have the Canon Cameras charged up and pointed at all you sexy people in the crowd — smile // dance // drink // party! Friday night baby, it’s on!
