EDC Las Vegas bent to the COVID-19 pandemic—but it didn’t break, and on October 22, 2021, Insomniac‘s flagship festival arched its proverbial back and stood tall once again across the 1.5-mile Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Come May of 2022, it’ll do just that as Pasquale Rotella and company reassert their promise that pandemic or no […]

GenZ Outdoor’s RaveRunner Hydration Pack offers festival-goers all the features they know they need—and the ones they didn’t [Review]

For the better part of a decade, I’ve attended more live music programming events than I could even begin to count, and as to be expected, over the years, I’ve both owned and have seen an innumberable amount of festical accoutrements hit the market. But as far as rave gear goes, GenZ Outdoor’s RaveRunner Hydration […]

In the midst of instability and uncertainty, 40,000 headliners headed to Southern California from July 3 –4 to take part in Insomniac Events sold-out, inaugural installation of its heady, house-centric Day Trip Festival.

A year and a half later, Zeds Dead return to the stage for annual Deadrocks affair [Review]

The weather at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, stationed at the foot of the Rockies, can be temperamental at times. On July 3, a clap of thunder and light rain accompanied those who’d lined up outside the venue’s gates in a bid to snag the first few rows. On any other occasion, pre-show precipitation would be cause […]

This Giant Japanese Egg Is The Raddest Way To Go Off-Roading

At some point in the fairly recent past, the multiverse split and sent the world on a darker timeline. I’d venture it was around the year 2000, when we exited the bright optimism of the 1990s. Somehow vans, once the ultimate vehicle for families, adventurers and travelers alike, were immediately and unceremoniously…Read more… Continue Reading […]

Lucky me. One of the perks of my dance music intrigue is the opportunity to play with top-of-the-line industry products such as Pioneer DJ’s new CDJ-3000. I was giddy to spend two weekends pretending to be an Electric Forest headliner in the comfort of my own living room after a year of forced isolation spent […]

The 2021 Polaris Slingshot Is More Of A Throwback Sports Car Than Any Miata Has Ever Accomplished

What is a sports car? Forget about lap times, forget about 0 to 60s, forget about quarter miles and top speeds. At its essential core, a sports car is a focused machine built for the sole purpose of connecting driver and road. Read more… Continue Reading at https://jalopnik.com

Immortals: Fenyx Rising: The Kotaku Review

Immortals: Fenyx Rising isn’t the game I was expecting. I was prepared for a big Ubisoft open-world action game filled with colorful vistas, Greek gods, and some elements inspired by The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild. It is all of that, but it’s not just Assassin’s Creed: Hyrule. It’s a welcome streamlining of…Read […]

Demon’s Souls: The Kotaku Review

Demon’s Souls, released last Thursday for the PlayStation 5, is a monumental achievement for developer Bluepoint Games. While the From Software original on PlayStation 3 was already considered one of the best games of all time, Bluepoint’s acted like a tumbler, sanding away the 2009 cult classic’s rough edges and…Read more… Continue Reading at https://kotaku.com

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla: The Kotaku Review

Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, a huge game made during a pandemic and with its own studio and parent company in crisis, is a game trying to do some difficult things. The first Assassin’s Creed in two years, and the 12th major Assassin’s Creed overall, it is the work of creators who are trying to honor the […]

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales: The Kotaku Review

The title screen of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales hit me like a subway train. It shows the title character, in a fur-lined winter coat and salt-speckled Timbs, as he taps away on his phone and listens to music while riding public transit. From the coat to the boots, I have been that kid. And for […]
