2020 was a rough year for everyone—especially music lovers. From canceled tours to indefinitely postponed festivals, those who find solace through live performances and unforgettable experiences with their favorite artists have felt the loss tremendously.
Luckily, Audiomack is kicking off the new year with another Ravecation festival premiering today, January 13, live on our YouTube channel. From 3 to 5 p.m. ET, catch a vibe to two vibrant virtual performances by Dutch production formation ChildsPlay and the prominent garage/house producer James Hype.
First up, ChildsPlay: the Dutch group comprised of DJ KidQ, MC Don Perignon, and producer Keanu. Together, the trio has gained international acclaim due to their high-energy live performances and the novel, eclectic sound only ChildsPlay can deliver. With DJ KidQ on the ones and twos, Don Perignon on the mic, and Keanu behind their booming production, ChildsPlay is becoming an undeniable force in the electronic sphere “leaving no dance floor untouched,” per their artist bio.
Next, we have English producer, DJ, and sample aficionado James Hype. With his extensive background as a DJ in the North of England, Hype has amassed a dedicated following who fell in love with the producer’s skillful use of samples from classic hip-hop and R&B tunes, which he proficiently repurposes into electronic dance records. James Hype is now a household name thanks to his remarkable gigs in Ibiza and the launch of his weekly Kiss FM show.
Tune in to Ravecation to witness two memorable performances as the artists tour the beautiful canals of Amsterdam while playing their music and redefining the essence of the live performance.
