ENVISION: A Change in the World

Envision: If you could find yourself in a euphoria of healing and love, a culture of self expression and creativity, and environment of spiritual awakening then you would probably first think of Burning Man. But, what if I were to tell you about a place south of the American border where this culture thrives in an even more lushly spiritual location. Costa Rica has long been the destination of surfers and spiritual pilgrims.

Lush with artist that incorporates local wood and earth. Envision festival provides for the land and it’s people. We find the amazing festival growing as the secret of it’s existence has now opened up to a greater portion of the world. Can you imagine the connection to our world grow as the collective intention of its people call for a place just like this? With awareness gatherings growing these past few years there are a few places to find ones self within ones self.

ODESZA Album "In Return" Album Of The Year?

Using their production talents alone, emerging Seattle-based duo ODESZA have proved themselves a no “flash in the pan” act after a string of chilled out releases including a remix of Pretty Lights “Lost and Found”, their “My Friends Never Die” EP and a remix of Zhu’s “Faded” plus a supporting role on Pretty Lights nationwide “A Color Map of the Sun” tour last year. Since then, the guys have embarked on spreading their music to the masses at various festivals and series of soldout headliner shows while finding time to work on their debut album titled In Return. ODESZA’s truly unique blend of infectious soulful vibes, future bass aesthetics, what you could call chill trap elements, on top of endless supply of organic live instruments are all on display for an album that shines bright and dares to inspire ones creativity. This will guaranteed be a trendsetter amongst the growing future bass genre world.
Gifting listeners with 13 singles on this release, the album transitions through a fascinating array of future sounding elements with even greater influences within the bass spectrum on display. The opening tracks are completely cinematic in design and have a tranquil flow to them that is relaxing yet engaging at the same time. The soulful foundation created on “All We Need” for Shy Girls to lay down a lush set of vocals is a thing of beauty as a series of melodic keyboard sections, wooden blocks, and cleaver bass twists leave a lasting imprint on the audible senses. We are also gifted with one of the strongest tracks on the record “Say My Name” featuring singer Zyra which got brough to life with a very impressive music video paying an ode to the movie Mullholland Drive. This brings me to ODESZA’s use of amazing vocalists on this album; each track boasting an emerging singer / songstress had me consistently wondering how did they collect such a strong cast of vocal talent? The remainder of the release continues to enchant listeners leading all the way up to the albums very first single “Sun Models”, which has become my personal anthem of the summer due to its top notch production that oozes in feel good vibes from start to finish.
ODESZA have perfected the art of creating superior musical compositions, with In Return being everything I had anticipated since we first heard the news of the duo producing an album. We are already seeing the start of what we can expect to be a long string of remixes from the project, and rightfully so. Listen to the full stream of the album below and pick up your copy through iTunes. Enjoy!

The Boulevard Festival this weekend in Logan Square!


The Boulevard is a classic Chicago event that is as diverse as the neighborhood itʼs located in. Logan Square, the backdrop for The Boulevard, is a historic Chicago neighborhood filled with beautiful century-old mansions and packed with culinary gems.
Bands on our two stage festival are an eclectic batch of some of Chicago’s hippest bands. Our line-up is one not to miss this summer. Chicago’s favorite independent promoters, Silver Wrapper, have curated one of the stages that will feature incredible talent throughout the weekend.
This event doesn’t only differ in talent. We carefully select some delicious craft beers… some that aren’t typically offered at other street festivals… YES!
A portion of the proceeds benefit the mission and outreach of St. Luke’s Lutheran Church of Logan Square, active community member for over 100 years. Festival entry is a $5 suggested donation.
