Review: EDM DJs Hotel Garuda opened and Sam Feldt finished what was truly a memorable sold-out Bandersnatch concert.

Virtually every song Sam Feldt played during University Union’s first Bandersnatch concert of the year was met with dancing from the college kids that came to see the 23-year-old perform.

An aura of happiness followed the young DJ, who headlined the concert Wednesday night. Feldt performed for well over an hour, periodically slowing down the current song he was mixing to thank the audience. His presence and masterful mixing impressed everyone in the room.

Rapper Michael Christmas and electronic music producer Sweater Beats' concert at Skybarn on South Campus features Christmas' eccentric hip-hop stylings and Sweater's tripped out brand of EDM.

It’s a rain-drenched Thursday night, and Michael Christmas is moving and mingling through the small crowd at a South Campus venue, cutting a striking and colorful figure with a large build and puffy hair that easily dwarfs the biggest afro you’ve ever seen.

 “I think I’m inspired by everyday life,” Christmas, the 21-year-old rapper from Boston, Massachusetts, said before performing at Skybarn along with rising electronic music maestro Sweater Beats on April 2.

Pairing the EDM artist and rapper provided plenty of audio ammunition Friday at the annual year-end concert.

After a morning of eating, drinking and celebrating the end of the school semester at MayFest, Syracuse University students headed to the Carrier Dome for a night with 2 Chainz and Zedd that surely did not disappoint. 

DJ Brazzabelle opened the show with her signature house mixes that got the crowd off its feet and swaying back and forth. The energy could be felt throughout the Dome as audience members screamed in anticipation of 2 Chainz and Zedd.

Review: EDM artists Cashmere Cat and Hudson Mohawke performed focused sets in the Schine Underground for the first show in University Union's Bandersnatch Series.

Once upstart beatsmith Hudson Mohawke settled in behind his production board — his MacBook perched nearby to his right — and started mixing monolithic basslines and glitch synthesizer beats, he never once stopped to exchange banter with the audience. He simply let his music do the talking.

Review: EDM group Krewella performed at the F Shed on Tuesday, fighting against the venue's bad acoustics and playing mostly hits to a crowd of casual fans.

EDM superstars Krewella will perform on Oct. 29 at the F Shed as part of their Get Wet Tour.

For electronic music fans, especially those who prefer trance and dubstep, September was a very good month. Avicii’s album, True, dropped Sept. 13, followed by the deluxe edition of Clarity by Zedd on Sept. 24. But despite Zedd’s popularity, his special edition release was eclipsed by the release of Krewella’s first full-length album, Get Wet.

Jeremy Salken from Big Gigantic took some time to talk with The NewsHouse about the duo's live show, upcoming album and help with Colorado flood relief.

Since Dominic Lalli and Jeremy Salken joined musical forces to create Big Gigantic in 2008, they have established a reputation of high energy live performances that differ from many other electronic acts. The duo frequently combines more well-known electronic elements like laptop effects with Lalli’s saxophone and Salken’s drums. Their unique style has gained them an enthusiastic following across the United States and around the world. They are currently on tour before the release of their next studio album, due out sometime in early 2014.
