Review: GET LOUD! Music Festival, Washington D.C.

I celebrated 4/20 at the DUBTRO presents GET LOUD! Music Festival, at the Warehouse Loft in DC. The venue was sick, with a huge outdoor stage and 4 indoor stages featuring all different types of sounds. My favorite acts of the night were FIGURE and DC Native, Chooky.

A regular name in the realms of dubstep and drumstep, FIGURE held down the outdoor stage. Spinning original tracks such as "Cut Throat" and his latest tune "The Brink," which he released last weekend for free, FIGURE threw down a hard set which definitely did not go unnoticed. At the end of his performance, FIGURE dropped a moombahton track which he told the audience he had just finished; keep your eyes peeled for it, because it was dirty and massive! This insanely talented heavy bass producer is a must-see live!

Up-and-coming Chooky took one of the indoor stages by storm. Competing for the same time-slot as Mord Fustang, he was able to maintain and command a room full of fans. His transitioning from moombahton originals and remixes to electro-house, and closing out with dubstep kept the crowd dancing. He included a live vocal performance by Carly Burns, "Good as Gold" and 'Shapeshifter" which are set to be released by Subdrive this summer. I spoke with Chooky, who said he has a lot of dubstep/electro house tracks in the works. Be on the lookout for these, and download his tracks for free on Soundcloud.
