Digital Dreams 2015

When the first few announcements mark the exciting previews to festival season, we can't help but wait anxiously to see what some of our favourites have in store.  Digital Dreams is Toronto's quintessential dance music festival repeatedly showing a brilliantly curated and wildly eclectic lineup.  Over the years acts like Major Lazer, Destructo, Richie Hawtin, Andy C, Nervo, and I Am Legion have lit up the various stages.  Each year marks a notable evolution in the legend that is Digital Dreams.  

This time some of our favourites make this initial list, and then even more announcements have been made since.  With artists like Yellow Claw, Deorro, and Alvin Risk making the list, and Galantis finally appearing in Toronto, headliners like Steve Angello and Zedd, and stages featuring Carl Cox and Friends and All Gone Pete Tong, this lineup is a dream come true.  In addition, check Digital Dreams on Facebook for more artists including some of our favourites like Anna Lunoe and our long time pal Cosella.

VIDEO: Run the Jewels ft. Zack De La Rocha "Close Your Eyes" 

The announcement that Zack De La Rocha would appear on the second Run The Jewels album certainly got our attention.  With the release of this video we can safely say that the legendary Rage Against the Machine vocalist alongside Killer Mike and El-P is a dream come true, but they take the platform of their much anticipated track and use it to put a spotlight on a very real nightmare.  This clip is a work of art, simply for the fact that it shows us something about our world that will quite possibly never be acknowledged by a number of people.

The video follows an intense fight between an LAPD officer and a black man, and it shows violence as it is.  Ugly, tiresome, clumsy, and nowhere near the glamourous action we see in TV and movies.  As this microscopic example of a very real war progresses we are reminded of something that people often miss.  These are humans on both sides of this, and no matter who you are we are in this together.  It is so rare for a song and a video to make such a powerful impression on the viewers and remind us that each and every person out there has a say in how our world works.

Bless Killer Mike, El-P, Zack De La Rocha, DJ Trackstar, and director AG Rojas for using this medium to open eyes and hearts to the reality that some avoid acknowleding.
