It’s no secret Northside Festival has a varied and extensive lineup, so it’s important to discern you genre scene before heading over to the stages. If you’re looking for DJs and electronic vibes to power through the festival, look no further, for Northside has set fans up with some choice spinners.
Not to be confused with the new Beyoncé album or the great track by CocoRosie, Lemonade is three man outfit split between Brooklyn and San Francisco. Their unique bubbling beats will provide a refreshing break of vocal synergy with unbeatable rhythms.
They play at Union Pool, Thursday June 9th.
Give a listen to “Stepping” from their album, Minus Tide here:
From Chicago is the classic DJ Clent. Clent mixes classic beat techniques with simplistic yet effective methods of the modern day. He always keeps listeners on their toes, surprising with wild combinations of past and present sounds for the most intense beats.
He will be performing at Palisades, Saturday June 11th.
Listen to his remix of Rihanna’s “Work” here:
It is impossible not to recognize the intense spinning skills demonstrated by Brooklyn-home Dwells. Do not let his age fool you, for his technique is hard to match. His beats are technical and calculated with such intensity, it’s hard not to get immersed.
He will be performing at Black Bear, Friday June 10th.
Watch him spin here:
Not only does DJ Lucas mix DJ work with rap techniques which make us remember when rap was at its finest, he provides a sense of rawness with his delivery which is unlike others in the Northside set.
He will be performing Friday, June 10th at Black Bear.
Listen to his quality produced work:
DJ Spinn provides another much needed extension of the genre – hip hop. If you’re in the market for some quality DJ work, with classic juke, then search no further for a place to practice your fancy footwork.
Spinn will be dropping his set Saturday, June 11th at Palisades.
