"Get Down" To Jack Beats

May 11, 2016
Post Image

Trailblazing, London based house duo DJ Plus One & Beni G, a.k.a. Jack Beats, have spent the better part of a decade flipping the traditional 128, 4×4 sound on its head with the help of wonky, wobbly basslines, big breakdowns and edgy acapella cuts. Hailing from similar backgrounds in turntabilism as multi-award-winning DJs in their own rights, DJ Plus One & Beni G fuse together their highly nurtured and electrifying live technical skills with one-of-a-kind production perspectives to spearhead their bass heavy, floor-filling brand of British house music. Jack Beats’ plan of attack is as clear as it is impactful: taking the very best, most spectacularly effective pieces from a vast array of different musical genres, whether it be from a drum & bass breakbeat, hip-hop loop, dubstep bassline, old rave riff, or vintage house sample, and blending them together to curate an irrepressible sonic force that detonates dance floors on contact. Put simply: Jack Beats are making exactly the music they want to make and the world is flocking to them.

Jack Beats have graced many of the world’s most prestigious DJ booths and festivals including Coachella, Fuji Rocks, Glastonbury, EDC and Sonar, as well as released on labels such as OWSLA, Rinse, Night Bass and Columbia. And now, it is the pleasure of Music is Love and RedEye Presents to welcome Jack Beats to our very own hometown stage at EOS Lounge on Wednesday, May 18th. Grab tickets to witness the exhilarating, pacemaking stylings of Jack Beats live in action here, and check out the event page for more info!

Alumni Weekend 2016 BBQ

March 29, 2016
Post Image

Santa Barbara’s annual, highly anticipated adult playground, a.k.a. the Alumni BBQ at EOS Lounge, is back in full force for UCSB’s 2016 Alumni weekend celebration on Saturday, April 30th. Complete with an outdoor stage showcasing nonstop world renowned musical talent, live art from local artists Chadillac Green, Gone Gallery and Martin Leyhe, specialty cocktails, BBQ-style drinking games like corn hole, beer pong, life sized Connect 4 and Jenga, eye wear demos by Fello Eyewear, and food provided by Mony’s Mexican food truck and 805 Boba, EOS is once again transforming its outdoor patio into a full fledged festivity under the sun.

This year’s outdoor gathering will coax Santa Barbara’s beautiful party people to move their feet and shake their hips to the musical stylings of globally beloved acts Just Blaze, Cut Snake and Wuki as well as local sets from alumni residents Tyler Robinson, T-Fresh, Convex, Don P, The One Timers and Zeek Beats. While hip hop’s Just Blaze has left a permanent mark in the music world by lending his refined production talents to huge names like Jay-Z, Eminem, Kanye West, Lupe Fiasco, Rihanna, Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, Rick Ross and Baauer, Cut Snake chooses to bring a different kind of heat with their unabashed, fuck-all attitude that translates to their lush, atmospheric and deep-leaning sound suited for any and every environment. Wuki, on the other hand, uses his trademarked genre-blending musical perspective influenced by the sounds of Detroit ghettotech and Chicago footwork scenes to seamlessly deliver booty, breaks, electro, and house into hard-hitting club-shakers.

Those who caught wind of the initial launch of this year’s Alumni BBQ lineup announcement have been anticipating the irreplaceably uplifting and beloved stylings of Pumpkin at this year’s gathering, however, due to inexplicably tragic events, Pumpkin, a.k.a. Nicholas Alvarado, unexpectedly passed away on Saturday, March 26th. With his passing, our community has experienced a loss of epic proportions, as Nicholas radiated as a highly influential champion of music, passion and a collective, conscious togetherness. Pumpkin’s music emanated with the unfathomably intense power of bringing everyone together in a fervor of true bliss and both outward and inward acceptance. Those who had the pleasure of experiencing his brilliant, exuberant energy firsthand carry with them the permanent blessing of his insurmountably splendent influences for the rest of their lives.

We will pay tribute to the truly inspirational life of Nicholas Alvarado at this year’s Alumni BBQ to honor the loss of our dear friend.

Tickets for Music is Love and RedEye Presents 2016’s Alumni BBQ at EOS Lounge Saturday, April 30th from 2:00 to 8:30 pm can be purchased here, and be sure to grab tickets for the BBQ’s Pre Party on Thursday, April 28th featuring Sleepy Tom and Dr. Fresch.

What So Not In Our Backyard

February 18, 2016
Post Image

Hailing from the sandstone bedrock that is Sydney, Australia, ‘What So Not’ (formerly a collaborative project between electronica breakthrough act Flume and its remaining member, the eclectic musical powerhouse Emoh Instead) set their sights on conquering the music world with uniquely electrifying, high intensity live shows and a sound that transcends genre molds and BPMs. Their infectiously innovative take on electronic music production has since caught the attention of dance music heroes like Major Lazer, Skrillex, A-Trak, and Flosstradamus. And with boundary blurring, pacemaking crossover tracks like “Jaguar,” “High You Are,” “The Quack,” “Touched” and their monstrous collaboration with RL Grime, “Tell Me,” What So Not has quickly become a highly coveted, world renowned dance music phenomenon in its short 5 year life.

Despite WSN’s poster child, Flume, dropping out of the equation early last year, Emoh Instead has been holding the namesake down properly since adopting the project by dropping their tunes at every major festival around the world and continuing the evolution of the What So Not brand beyond just the music. Now standing as Emoh Instead’s solo venture, Emoh has been focusing on the next chapter of What So Not by collaborating with various musicians like RL Grime, George Maple, Dillion Francis, Skrillex, and 1970s rock band Toto, as well as teaming up with multiple visual artists and creative minds to submerse live crowds in a complete, one-of-a-kind, What So Not experience.

Luckily for us, this globe trotting, one-man dynamic is being transported to our backyards on Thursday, March 10th for a rare, intimate show at EOS Lounge. Tickets will sell out fast, so be sure to grab yours when they go on sale Friday, February 19th at 10 am here!
