If you’re searching for a good mix of ghetto funk with heavier bass, then you’ll definitely have to visit the Dr. His Prescription, Mix Series on Soundcloud, which features artists like Jackal, LO’99, and Louis the Child, is also a great podcast to check out. Over the last year, Dr. Fresch has released a variety of singles including Superfreak, Hello x Bijou, The New Order with SNBRN x Sean Frank, as well as a rendition of TLC’s No Love. We’re looking forward to getting a prescription to get funky at Lucky this year.
Lucky 2017 will be this French DJ’s first massive in the PNW. Ferry Tayle recently joined the FSOE squad in 2016, and fans are welcoming the new changes. Ferry Tayle has performed live on occasion, so that’ll be something for us to hope for this March. His overall sound varies in differing styles of trance. Ferry Tayle’s Let the Magic Happen (Live) starts off with vibrant chords and uplifting intros, then transitions to a more staccato beat, and back again. He’ll definitely not be one to miss on the FSOE stage at Lucky.
UK trance producer and radio host, Jordan Suckley, garnered a lot of attention from trance fans on the lucky lineup. His style of trance often spans between tech and psy. His older track Do or Die features the uplifting chord progression of trance, but the abrupt, quick drumlines in the chorus are reminiscent of psy. Jordan Suckley’s podcast ‘Damaged Radio‘ features a variety of tech and psytrance, and even techno. There are so many different styles of trance for us to hear at Lucky 2017 that we’re certain the FSOE stage will be a trance-lovers dream.
Figure B2B Midnight Tyrannosaurus
This monumental B2B is one of the most commonly discussed artist features on the Lucky page. Figure had a number of killer performances last year while opening for Excision’s 2015 Paradox Tour. He also released an EP Monsters 7, which showcases that dark and heavy dubstep sound. As stated by Figure on the album, he’s “keeping on with my tradition of all things spooky and creepy.”
Never Say Die artist Midnight Tyrannosaurus also has a spooky, dubstep sound. His most recent release on the label The Fossil EP incorporates funky dubstep in some tracks and then takes a dark, somewhat sinister turn with its vocals. Having these two uncanny, eerie dubstep artists in one place will definitely get us headbanging hard at Lucky. Many bass-heads are excited to see what these two artists will bring, and some are already predicting that they’ll be the set of the night.
A northwest favorite headliner returns. After several stops in the PNW for Life in Color last year, we’re hoping we’ll get “lucky” enough to hear some new tracks during this set. Maybe, they’ll even have something else up their sleeve (Pendulum surprise headliner . . . one can dream right?). But honestly, Bonfire is still a classic song to bang your head to. After their recent single with Tom Morello Battle Sirens, there’s much for us to look forward to this March.
