The Seattle-based trio start off the Key Arena stage on Saturday at 4:30. Consisting of DJ Jimmy Hits, producer A_Rival, and vocalist Helen Eugene, the group was originally created by Ben Lavee (Monster Energy resident DJ) as a way to bring new artistry to the prototypical DJ set.
As described by their Facebook page, “this group produces and plays Progressive House, electro, Dubstep, and Drumstep among other emerging forms of electronic music” and “whatever feels right.” Super Square brings a blend of pop-savvy sounds and expressive melodies to the EDM scene, and would be an interesting performance to catch early in the day. Plus, it is always awesome to support local artists!
The LA based DJ follows shortly after Super Square at Key Arena. Her first LP, Midnight Menu, was recently re-released to digital media outlets (which we have to say is fire), so we can only expect that her set at Bumbershoot will thoroughly impress. TOKiMONSTA will bring a mix of funk, instrumental hip-hop, and trip-hop to create chill atmosphere in the arena. Who knows, maybe she’ll even play or feature her songs with Anderson Paak.
Zhu is a popular artist on this list, but after his sold out show in April, he is a much anticipated act to see in the lineup. GenerationWhy was released in July, so we can only hope we’ll hear some of our favorite tracks from his most recent album. His melodic deep house and strong visual production will keep you hooked from beginning to end, and therefore is a can’t miss act in the Key Arena.
