Samsung Galaxy at Lolla Out Of This World #lolla

Here at ChiIL Live Shows/ChiIL Mama we're a Galaxy Family.   We bought the first Galaxy S right when it came out and currently have the S4 & S3.   They impressed me last weekend at BlogHer at McCormick Place with free engraved cases, new batteries, and sweet tech swag like speakers, chargers and even big giveaways.   This weekend they're rockin' Lollapalooza!

Friday, August 2
Perry’s Stage
1:00 p.m. - 1:45 p.m.

Toronto-based live electronic outfit KEYS N KRATES is releasing the SOLOW EP this September on Dim Mak Records. On the SOLOW EPKEYS N KRATES returns in full force with four diverse tracks that exemplify the group’s unique style. The EP follows the major success of their critically acclaimed single and accompanying remix package “Treat Me Right,” released in June via Dim Mak, which topped The Hype Machine upon its release and has since received continued support from influential artists in the electronic world, including Diplo and Major LazerFlosstradamusTNGHT, and more. The remix from producer Grandtheft of “Treat Me Right,” featured on the Treat Me Right EP, also reached #1 on the Beatport Electronica Top 100 chart. The SOLOW EP features the new track “Dum Dee Dum,” which mixes the group’s trademark blend of hip-hop, trap, and electronica influences, and will be released as a single August 6 via Dim Mak. Also featured on the SOLOW EP are tracks “I Just Can’t Deny”—an anthem built for stadium crowds and festival denizens alike—and the hip-hop heavy “Ratchet Hoes,” which best illustrates KEYS N KRATES’ dominance of the current electro-trap movement, as well as “Treat Me Right.” Best known for their energetic live performances, KEYS N KRATES have created an experimental sound unheard in electronic music today. The group—composed of Adam Tune on drumssynth-master David Matisse on keys, and internationally award-winning Jr. Flo on turntables—brings the experience to life via their fully live sets. KEYS N KRATES collage raw samples and twist them with live instrumentation, creating an inimitable sound and truly demonstrating the artistry of the live remix rarely seen in electronic music performance today. The trap-tinged electronic/hip-hop hybrid group has been enjoying major support from the online sphere and has become a mainstay in the sets of big hitters such as Major Lazer, TNGHT, Diplo, Annie Mac and Salva. They have also been crowned #1 on Billboard’s official “Next Big Sound” chart. Watch a live performance of their smash single “Treat Me Right” here:

Perry’s Stage
8:45 p.m. – 10 p.m.

Closing out Perry’s Stage opening night at this year’s Lollapalooza, Grammy-nominated international EDM star STEVE AOKI broke bands such as Bloc Party, The Bloody Beetroots, Klaxons, and The Gossip through deftly marketed single and full-length releases on his Dim Mak label, which he began in 1996 and now has nearly 500 releases to date. Those releases often dovetailed into performances at his weekly Dim Mak nights including Dim Mak Studios (still going strong every Tuesday night in the heart of Hollywood).  As a label owner and shrewd curator of talent from around the world, those club nights have hosted the debut U.S. performances of hundreds of acts over the last decade from Lady Gaga to Ed Banger Records & Justice, Ke$ha, Skrillex, Kid Cudi, Kaiser Chiefs, No Age to Boys NoizeAOKI’s become a force of nature who has helped turn underground house, electro and harder-edged EDM with rap and rock leanings into the phenomena it is today: regularly pulling in 150,000+ fans at events such as Las Vegas’ Electric Daisy Carnival, the debut of the IDentity national electronic touring festival and his Deadmeat co-headlining tour with Datsik.   AOKI’s punk roots go back to the art of the house party, when he was just a student at UCSB and was already booking bands such as The Rapture, !!!, Jimmy Eat World, Hot Water Music and At the Drive-In at his Pickle Patch bash and forging relationships with big names that would end up serving him well in the future (he met Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo at a secret show in college). In 2012, AOKI was in the next level of his incredible music career with Wonderland as his first proper full-length release, followed by Wonderland Remix and his Deadmeat: Live at Roseland Ballroom DVD, all which bring a lifetime’s worth of passion for bands, DJs, and artists of all stripes he has met and/or worked with over the past two decades to the forefront.
