Northern Nights

Northern Nights 2014

Northern California get ready. A three day celebration is about to hit Redwood Curtain. If you haven’t already bought tickets to Northern Nights 2014, you can here.

This annual gathering of likeminded party-goers are pitching their tents in the picturesque Cook’s Valley Campground and are supporting well-known and underground artists alike. American experimental world fusion and electronic group Beats Antique and internationally successful DJ/producer Justin Martin are some of the headliners at this event. On the other end of the spectrum attendees will be supporting Dub Cowboy, DJ Dials and other promising electronic music artists that are ready to cause havoc.

The icing on the cake is that all ticket and beverage sale profits will be shared with the Mendocino and Humboldt school districts, non-profits and environmental groups. Just remind yourself of that while you are nursing your hangover!

Justice against the grain at Digital Dreams

Usually you would think that an enormous electronic music festival would not hear the likes of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, so it was groundbreaking news when French duo Justice went against the natural flow of a headlining set and featured this particular song as the closing number at Toronto’s Digital Dreams festival last week.

An event to help celebrate the country’s 147th birthday and one that showcases hit makers like Tiesto, Deep Dish and Dash Berlin, one would think Justice, a duo right amongst these top dogs would not expect the crowd to boogie along down to a 1960s track.  However the controversy has also come with compliments. Though they are known for their own hit Civilization which is always pleasing to hear, Justice have also been acknowledged for their ‘boldness to express the originality to do something different’.
