(Brownies & Lemonade Stage)
Currently based in Los Angeles, CRAY (Cheney Ray) is a DJ, producer, singer and gamer. Performing as an opener on Anna Lunoe’s HyperHouse Tour in 2016 gave CRAY the momentum needed to throw herself fully into her music career. Since then, her incredibly energetic sets have earned her a spot on festivals such as HARD SummerAudiotistic and Electric Zoo. In 2018, CRAY kicked off the year touring through Japan alongside Skrillex, followed by an Australian headline tour. Musically inspired by her love for classical jazz and swing artists like Frank Sinatra and Billie Holiday, CRAY brings a refreshing perspective to the electronic scene. Her inventive records allow her to avoid labels and continually reinvent her sound, resulting in a fan base that spans the indie electronic, pop and dance genres. On her latest single “Peaches,” she added her own vocals into the mix, another dimension that sets her apart and she recently lent her remix skills toMaroon 5’s “Girls Like You Featuring Cardi B.”

REZZ
Saturday, September 1- 6:45 PM @ Main Stage
Though young at 23 years of age, REZZ is anything but an amateur. Producing state of the art, genre-bending works, while striking a sharp balance between bass heavy and minimal tech compositions, she oozes originality and stands shoulder to shoulder with the very best in the electronic music scene. With a handful of projects now under her belt, “Space Mom” returned this August with CERTAIN KIND OF MAGIC, her new artist album for mau5trap. With an arsenal of new music and sold-out shows plus recent headlining slots at Coachella (Sahara tent) and MovementREZZ is taking big steps forward.  CERTAIN KIND OF MAGIC captures her ever-evolving and idiosyncratic electro sound.  On this turn, in addition to her solo tracks she taps newcomers such as 1788-L, Deathpact, Kotek, 13 and Fytch, adding to the battery of her menacing productions.  Check out the album now at:http://smarturl.it/certainkindofmagic
TroyBoi
Saturday, September 1- 7:00 PM @ Hilltop Arena 
(Deadbeats Stage)
Coming straight out of South East London, rising multi-genre, multifaceted producer TroyBoi goes against the grain when it comes to his music. Since skyrocketing onto the scene in 2013, TroyBoi, née Troy Henry, left his distinguished mark on the music world on the strength of his unique original productions which blend multicultural influences and hip-hop finesse built atop versatile, hook-laced, trap-infused beats as heard on his 2017 debut album Left Is Right. This spring, rising sensation Billie Eilish tapped TroyBoi for a special remix of “My Boi.” Fans were treated to a surprise recently, when, during his second appearance at Coachella, TroyBoi released a new six-track EP V!BEZ via T dot Music. “I’ve been exploring and creating various types of tracks, all with different V!BES to them,” says TroyBoi. “Since I ended up making so many different tracks, I struggled choosing which song I wanted to release first, so instead of trickling songs out one by one, I thought it made sense for me to release a few all at once.”
TroyBoi adds: “V!BEZ for everyone. ‘Sunset In Costa Rica’ was made on my hotel balcony in Costa Rica overlooking one of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve ever seen. ‘Wickedest Bounce’–I love music from the 80’s (I’m an 80’s baby) and wanted to put my spin on that era’s sound with a combination of elements. ‘HEY BO!’ & ‘No Games’ are for the bass heads. ‘Spooky’ feat my boy David Stewart is a song that we’ve both been dying to release for ages. Sexy V!BEZ. In a nutshell, I hope everyone enjoys all the eclectic V!BEZ on this ep. Much love.”

Electric Zoo 2017 Presents Elrow Bollywood

Electric Zoo is coming back to New York City on Randall’s Island for the city’s largest music festival this Labor Day weekend, and it looks like they have a lot of exciting things planned. One of the Hottest Party brands emerging from Europe right now is coming to one of the Big Apple’s largest electronic dance music festivals.

 

 

The festival, which will take place September 1-3, is themed “The 6th Boro,” is introducing elorw, the legendary party series produced by Spain’s Arnau family since the 1800’s, and is one of the most beloved dance music institutions in all of Europe. The Arnau family’s 140-odd year history of throwing parties, and legacy for entering transcends generations making elrow one of electronic music’s most infectious and compelling stories. This Labor Day weekend on Sunday, September 3, elrow’s Bollywood spectacular dance party returns to NYC’s longest running and largest EDM festival, marking its only North American event this year.

In a kaleidoscopic explosion of color, elrow bring the theatrical flamboyance of the cinematic movement to the 6th Boro. Party goers can expect a mind-blowing set, Indian emboroidery, incense, belly-dancers and snake charmers all set around a spectacular Taj Mahal. Artists playing the stage include Thomas Jack, Claptone, The Black Madonna, De La Swing, Marc Maya and a B2B set with ALX and Charles Meyer.

 

 

Electric Zoo’s Hilltop Arena will be transformed into an exotic paradise, as stilt-walking Bhangra dancers and larger-than-life performers keep the 6th Boro citizens on their toes with plenty of surprises from elrow’s special guest DJs and residents. Electric Zoo will be the only place stateside fans can experience this special happening.

 

Elrow’s penchant for inflatable flair, custom confetti and bold imagery makes them a colorful outlier in the stoic world of underground clubbing. Last summer, elrow made an undeniable mark on the scene with a ten week sold-out run at Space Ibiza. This summer elrow hold a residency at Ibiza’s No. 1 nightclub Amnesia and is selling more tickets than any other show on the island.
