Preview: Soundwave Music Festival AZ

This Saturday Tempe, Arizona's annual Soundwave Music Festival will be taking over the Valley of the Sun at Big Surf Waterpark. This event has been known for housing big names such as Kaskade, Diplo, and Boys Noize so we at EDM Lounge are excited to check it out once more this year. With the addition of the Redbull Thre3style Massive stage, Soundwave has gotten twice the amount of talent it had last year, so if you're in the area you will not want to miss this. Watch out for our team there spreading the love (yes some of us are flying all the way from NYC for this!), and if you see us please be sure to SAY CHEESE!

Calvin Harris (Waikiki Beach Stage, 10:30 PM - 12:00 AM)

Calvin Harris is among the biggest names in EDM right now. After collaborating with artists like Rihanna and deadmau5, this young 28 year old producer still has a massive career ahead of him. A headliner at this year's EDC New York and Vegas, this mainstage act will sure to make waves, even if it is the desert.

FIGURE (Redbull Thre3style Massive Stage, 11:00 PM - 12:00 AM)

FIGURE has one of the wildest sounds coming out of bass music today. With a background in Electro House, Josh Gard brings to the table a truly unique, and loud Dubstep sound. With a strong and loyal fanbase fueled by his dedication to his listeners and free downloads, FIGURE has gone off the charts this year, and we can't wait to watch him close out the Surf festival at the Redbull stage Saturday night!

R3hab (Waikiki Beach Stage, 9:30 - 10:30 PM)

After dominating in the Dutch dance scene, R3hab has made a name for himself in Electronic Dance Music scene. From collaborating with the likes of Chuckie and Laidback Luke, to tearing up the stages at music festivals around the world, after this hour and a half of this you'll be screaming "I need R3hab!".



Adventure Club (Waikiki Beach Stage, 8:30 - 9:30 PM)

Adventure Club is an interesting producing duo that take the most unique and different tracks and remix them. From remixing Flight Facilities, to the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and even Alexisonfire, AC have definitely mastered the art of making a song into a beautiful dub step tune. After a firey touring year for the two, from EDC Vegas to Electric Zoo, you can't miss this one.

Seven Lions (Waikiki Beach Stage, 6:30 - 7:30 PM)

Producer Jeff Montalvo has been making a lot of noise in not just the Dubstep charts, but the Trance charts too recently. His signature trancestep has become increasingly more and more popular with the overwhelming support of both of the genre's fan bases. Each track of his is different, and it should be a real treat to see it in action, live.

Track of the Day: "Super Sonic Brain Waves" - FIGURE

Super Sonic Brain Waves! The track title of Fig's poisonous new dubstep track is just as catchy as the tune itself. This one's not for the faint of heart. We've been posting FIGURE tracks since we first heard about him back in the spring, so we're really excited to report that he'll be touring all around the USA on the Brain Waves Tour this fall. If you're a fan of real filthy bass it's about time you checked FIGURE out - and make sure to grab the free download of "Super Sonic Brain Waves"! P.S. If you're listening to this on iPod earbuds or ghetto speakers, it's time for a bass upgrade. It will change your life.

Track of the Day: "Mercy" - Kanye West (Figure Remix)

Okay, so, let's be completely honest, the original version of "Mercy" is not lacking in the bass department. Sadly, I have very particular standards as to what it means to have enough BASS. They call me the Bass Queen for a reason: I fucking want my speakers to THUMP, and Figure has always delivered in that department. I Kanye's original well enough to begin with, but the Figure remix is far sicker in my opinion. This is partially because it's legitimately a remix - he changed up the song quite a bit (though it's still recognizable) as opposed to just turning the chorus into a drop (which is not a remix IMO - it's a correction). But I fucking love this remix - it's awesome, and it legit thumps hard. So if you like what you hear, check out another track I've posted of Figure's right here. And don't forget to grab the free download!

Free Download: "God Slay the Fiend" (Original Mix) - Figure

Check out this sick track from Figure that was just released a few days ago! If you've seen him live or just saw him live at EDC, you have probably heard this, as he says that it is a part of his live sets but that he is releasing it due to it's popularity at shows. We've done a post on him before for his track "The Brink" which is sick (check it out if you missed it), and he just continues to release wild shit, so here we are again. This track opens with some sampling from SLC Punk, and then immediately goes into a sick drop that I thought was quite impressive. He also throws us a drumstep drop as well, which I appreciate because, as you know, I have mad respect for artists who can incorporate more than one genre into a track. So mad props to you, Figure! Hit me up on Twitter (@SaraLange922) and let me know what you think of this track, and while you're over there, follow Figure too (@imfigure). Enjoy!
