White Party Artist Spotlight: Porter Robinson & Peacetreaty

Written By Jake Stanier on Saturday, 14 May 2011

Summer. For some, it means the end of grueling schoolwork and long hours during the week. For others, it’s the start of new jobs and new routines. One thing is for sure though—there will be endless sunrays, drinks by the pool and most importantly, summer concerts! With the summer solstice just a little more than a month away, it's time to prepare for a season of epic proportions. What better way to kick it off than with a White Party featuring none other than prodigy DJ/producer Porter Robinson and the familiar faces of one of my new favorite up-and-coming groups, Peacetreaty. This is sure to be a show that will blow everyone away.

Porter Robinson is considered a phenomenon of our time, and his rapid ascent to the frontline of Electronic Dance Music has been one to remember. At a mere 18-years-old, Porter managed to secure the #1 spot on Beatport's Electro-house chart, topping DJs and producers from around the world with his smash hit “Say My Name”—a track he had created before even once setting foot in a club or festival. Now considered a hit sensation, his instantly recognizable signature sound has since earned him the support of illustrious producers, ranging from Tiesto and David Guetta to The Crystal Method and Dada Life. Expect to have a night jam packed with ear-gasms not only this upcoming week at The White Party, but also a month later on June 26th with big names Zedd and Skrillex.

If that is not enough to excite you, Peacetreaty is also part of the White Party lineup. With tracks that have been known to incite glorious mayhem and explosive dancing the name seems somewhat ironic, yet they continue to annihilate speakers and dance floors with their cataclysmic sound and an overall “band-like” feeling put off by the three. Similar to Porter, they are one of the fastest up-and-coming EDM groups to hit the scene this year. Created by producer Josh Anaya in 2009, he teamed up with DJ Sam Hiller from Groove Radio and musician Angelo Patino-Patroni to form the new trio in 2010. Nearly instantaneously receiving support from many exceptionally renowned names such as recently featured Wolfgang Gartner, Benny Benassi, Afrojack, Deadmau5, and a couple other personal favorites of mine—Fake Blood and the aforementioned Porter Robinson.

With the help of their friend Dan Oh, Peacetreaty was able to get their frontline track “Cal State Anthem” into the hands of Steve Aoki himself last June. Since then, they have been added to the legendary Dim Mak roster alongside some of the greatest names in EDM, including MSTRKRFT, The Bloody Beetroots, Dada Life, Felix Cartel, and more. Aside from their planned Dim Mak EP that is to be released in November, they plan to release an EP for Afrojack's label featuring "Kissed with the Noise," as well as a remix coming out on Laidback Luke's label, Mixmash.

Tune in next week after the concert for an exclusive video interview. In the meantime you can expect Porter Robinson and Peacetreaty to continue rising to headliner status over the next year, so don't miss their return to SLO for the White Party on the 21st!

Avila Beach Party Artist Spotlight: Chris Young the Rapper

Written By Marie Cravens on Friday, 22 April 2011

The weather’s heating up, swimsuits are re-emerging from the depths of the closet, and drinks are beginning to sport tiny umbrellas as garnishes. All this can only mean one thing: it’s almost time for Memorial Day weekend, and for Central Coast residents there’s only one place to be — Otter Productions and Collective Effort’s Avila Beach Party 2011!

The perfect way to kick off the summer party season, this rager — at the beautiful Avila Beach Resort — features big-name headlining acts LMFAO, Shwayze, and Cisco Adler. These two duos are sure to lead to one explosive event all evening long on Friday, May 27.

LMFAO, consisting of DJ/rappers Redfoo and Skyblu, bring the pounding electro, bottles popping in the club, black-out and dance all night side to the party, with songs like “Party Rock Anthem,” “Shots,”and of course, “I’m in Miami, Bitch.” These two crazy party animals know how to keep the energy high from the sunset, to the night time, to the early morning after-party.

Shwayze, a Malibu-born rapper, and Cisco Adler, producer and former Whitestarr frontman, bring a more laid-back, red cup, bikini beach party vibe to the event. Their summer anthem “Corona and Lime” will be sure to add some heat to Avila Beach before LMFAO tears the place up. These two L.A. guys are well known for working together on the MTV reality show “Buzzin,’” as well as their hit single of the same name.

The opening act for the party is someone you might not have heard of yet, but definitely will soon: a young MC who goes by the name of Chris Young the Rapper. Raised in San Diego, Young dropped out of the University of Arizona after one semester and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in hip-hop by any means necessary. Within months of the move Young joined forces with Cisco Adler and was touring the U.S. with him and Shwayze.

Since then, three years have gone by, and Young has continued to tour, as well as release several critically-acclaimed mixtapes and EPs. The rapper still works closely with Adler, including being signed to Adler’s label Bananabeat Records since August 2009. The rapper and producer most recently released Young’s debut EP on Bananabeat, entitled “1991.”

The “1991” EP, released late last year, has many noteworthy tracks, all delivered in Young’s trademark laid-back delivery. Coupled with Adler’s producing, the EP definitely showcases the duo’s California mentality, with standout tracks “Stop,” “Do You Love It (The Record Biz),” and “Stoned,” featuring Del the Funky Homosapien.

Only 21 years old, the rapper imparts a wisdom far beyond his years in his rhymes. His lyrics tell a story which goes far beyond the normal no-soul, radio-friendly hip-hop common today, while still staying funky, fresh, and undeniably catchy. In an interview with Hollywood Music Magazine, Young said, “That’s me though, I’m wild enough to start the party and wise enough to break up the fight. And I think it’s that light that sets me apart.” The socially-conscious, positive messages in his rhymes will remind Avila Beach party-goers to have fun, but always stay responsible at the same time.

Young’s latest mixtape, “Value Pack 2,” just dropped on April 1, and shows a new side to the usually chill rapper. Electronic influences are evident, making these tunes party-ready while still retaining Young’s smart and unique lyrics. The track “Party Animals” — produced by Philly remix duo Les Professionnels — is a sick rap-dance track with European flavor that will get bodies moving on the beach without a doubt. Also on the mixtape is a dope remix of Flight Facilities’ “Crave You,” one of last year’s biggest nu-disco tracks given a new life with the addition of Young’s fierce rhymes over Giselle Rosselli’s ethereal vocals. 

“Chris Young is a real talent at a time when everything seems plastic and contrived. An artist who knows who he is and what he came for. I liken him to a young Nas or a Big L. He’s a lyricist but he knows how to put it in the form of a song,” Cisco Adler has said of his partner. 

Young’s lyrical and freestyle talents, coupled with the new dance feel of “Value Pack 2” is one deadly combination that is sure to destroy the Avila Beach Resort early on and get everyone pumped to keep the party going the rest of the night. Make sure to get your tickets now for this all-ages Memorial Day Avila Beach Party people will be talking about for years! And don’t forget to get there early on Friday, May 27 to catch Chris Young the Rapper along with Shwayze, Cisco Adler, and LMFAO, as well as a warm-up DJ set by San Luis Obispo’s own Audiobit. PARTY!
