If you haven’t heard, on August 21, 2017 the world will enter a state of twilight, the sun will disappear behind the moon, demonstrating what we know to be a total solar eclipse. In this time, the moon’s silhouette covers the sun’s silhouette and during that period, one can see intense light streaks, quite the temperature drop, and overall, a rare look into the beautiful heavens as we know it. Total Solar Eclipses like these do not come around very often. Be sure to check out oregoneclipse2017.com for all information regarding the six-day festival.
5. Sweet Spot – The String Cheese Incident
No Oregon festival would be complete without this genre-bending, six-man jam band. Good tunes, good people, and good vibes are what brings us together these types of events and SCI’s “Sweet Spot” hits just that. From warming vocals that’ll put a smile on your face, to a beautiful instrumental that keeps your foot tappin’, The String Cheese Incident’s set is one for all ages and music lovers alike!
4. Get Loud – STS9
Take a break from all that heavy bass and go with something a little more easy on the soul. Sound Tribe has always kept it funky with their breaks. “Get Loud” furthers that tradition with a psychedelic, out-of-this world tune that’ll put anyone with an ounce of soul in their body into a disco-fueled frenzy.
3. Can’t Kill Us – The Glitch Mob
The LA based, electronica sounding three-piece has been shaking up dance floors with their edgy, future-tech samples. Can’t Kill Us futures a creeping bassline that gives us that amazing “bleep-bloop” robot sounds that all of us with a geeky side know and love. Fun Fact: The Glitch Mob demonstrated one of their early setups on G4TV’s “Attack of the Show” six years ago.
2. Hooper (feat. Healthy Chill) – Troyboi
Like his bassheavy counterpart, Troyboi has been in the game for a hot minute. The Trap OG’s sound reaches from trap, electro-house, hip hop, pop and has even supported the likes of Flosstradamus. Hooper is the latest release from the grimey London-based artist. Troyboi lets the bass roll and hit hard in this song and even features a dope verse from New York-based producer and rapper Healthy Chill.
1. Was Will Be (feat. Mimi Page) – Bassnectar
Was Will Be is the third track off of Bassnectar’s latest EP Reflective. As most of us probably know, Bassnectar knows how to rock a crowd with a extreme bass, breakbeat, and many other genres of electronic music. Was Will Be has an euphoric, cerebral feel to it. Euphoria is what one should be shooting for at a festival like Oregon Eclipse; and a song like this will definitely feel like you’re about to launch into the great unknown.
