According to several Chicago news sources, Lollapalooza has begun to drop hints about potential performers, but you’ll have to be paying close attention. Today, on Chicago’s public transportation system, CTA ads on video screens in the Logan Square Blue Line station have reportedly been displaying lines from song lyrics, followed by “#Lolla.” According to these ads, we can expect to see Die Antwoord, Justice, The Weeknd,and Jack White at this year’s Lolla festival. Here are the four reported hints, via Wine & Pop:
- “I fink u freeky” from Die Antwoord’s “I Fink U Freeky”
- “Do the D.A.N.C.E.” from Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.”
- “I got a test for you” from The Weeknd’s “Initiation”
- “I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt, or interrupt me” from Jack White’s “Love Interruption”
It remains to be seen whether these first four hints provide the festival’s headliners, or whether even more exciting additions are to come. If you’re in the Chicago area, keep an eye out for new Lolla clues, because their video-screen locations means they could be changing by the minute. Here’s a photo from one of the CTA ads, displaying the lyrics to Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.”:
Yesterday we showcased the video for Justice’s “On’N'On” and noted that their was a remix EP with tracks from Tiga, Brodinski, Erol Alkan, Video Village and… Motherfucking Rick Rubin. Yeah that Rick Rubin. The legend hasn’t ever worked in electronic music before, and has been absent from hip hop since 2007. Now he’s back for a take on Audio, Video, Disco‘s best track. Give it a listen. Definitely has that classic Rubin sound.
Justice always comes correct when it comes to music videos, so it’s not surprise that the video for my favorite track off of Audio, Video, Disco is another resounding success. It reminds of that “virtual” roller coaster ride that they play at the beginning of movies at AMC theaters… except for instead of rolling through a cheesy space world and ending in a movie theater, you’re flying through Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay’s mouths, ancient temples, naked women, and more of the usual Justice imagery. The video was directed by Alexandre Courtes. The On’N'On EP will feature remixes from Brodinski (already released and amazing), Erol Alkan, Rick Rubin (wow) and Video Village and will be released on January 27.
Two Norwegians join forces to create a great experimental disco-ready EP. Ketil and Ulrik, two 20 year old’s, formed Lemaitre in the summer of 2010. After the release of their first EP, The Friendly Sound, these two have been gaining support around the world. Said to be influenced by “Justice, Phoenix, Daft Punk, Deadmau5, Noisia, Ratatat, and Royksopp” this EP definitely needs to be checked out. These guys have a very distinct style that combines multiple live instruments, an indie/rock type feel, and electronic music into a very very good first release. Strongly recommended to check out this EP and I will be sure to post their next album which is coming out shortly. In the meantime, give this EP a spin.
