To spark the anticipation for their annual festival, the Desert Hearts crew have kicked off their ‘Road To Desert Hearts’ series with a brand new EP from Porky and Mitch Dodge.
The duo comes firing in with their ‘Chameleon’ EP, which includes two songs that showcase the sounds you can expect to hear at the Desert Hearts festival in April.
The title track takes us to another dimension with a larger-than-life bassline that lingers throughout the duration of the song. Avoiding any melodic elements, Porky & Mitch Dodge keep it simple on ‘Chameleon’ by focusing on the perfectly engineered drum patterns, lingering vocals, and a massive bassline.
‘Big Dog,’ sticks to a similar formula, but still sounds fresh in its own way. The highlight of this track is found in the breakdown which builds up to one of the largest drops you have ever heard.
Spring Awakening is coming back to Chicago from June 7th to the 9th in 2019 for an epic 3 days with a super stacked line up. They are taking a different direction with their 8th installment of the festival as it will now be held at Poplar Creek at 59-90 Entertainment District in Hoffman Estates, located in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. This venue is nearly double the size of the Spring Awakening Music Festival’s previous year, now occupying 27 acres. As the most sizable Electronic music festival in the midwest, It’s always a spectacle to see festival planners create new infrastructure around a new location.
The line up this year will be home to over ninety artists throwing down at 5 different stages across the venue.
