Festival Memes, DJ Livestreams, & Drive-In Festivals
With 2020 being the way it is, there is no doubt we can all use a good laugh. Many artists are adapting to the COVID-19 situation by doing ‘Virtual DJ Sets’. This is a way to stay connected with their fans, and reinforce their brands. Artists now have the opportunity to perform out of their comfort zone. They can even play music they wouldn’t typically play in a set. Though this is keeping the fans in good spirits, artists are still struggling. DJs aren’t making nearly the same amount of income they were from touring and performing live. This has artists ready to hop on any live festival opportunity they can get.

While we wait for live events to fully come back, the least we can do is reminisce the good ol’ days. With that being, here are this past week’s Festival Memes of Week.

Delta-8 THC Near Me?
If you are new to buying delta-8, here are some facts that may help you choose your products.

The 2018 Farm Bill legalized hemp containing less than 0.3 percent delta-9 THC. On the federal level, products may contain higher amounts of delta-8 THC, as long as they come from hemp that doesn’t have more than 0.3 percent delta-9 THC. This is based on dry weight.

Delta-8 THC Near Me?

However, hemp plants do not produce delta-8 in large amounts. That means that delta-8 can be made by converting CBD or delta-9 THC into delta-8 THC synthetically. Synthetic delta-8 is illegal in most states, including New York. Some state laws strictly prohibit the sale of products containing both delta-8 and delta-9 THC.

Although there are a lot of great hemp companies, there are also some with poor quality ingredients. Synthesized delta-8 also adds more risk due to poor quality synthesis, and human error.

Tommie Sunshine Continues To Break Barriers With New Label – Brooklyn Blue
2020 has been a crazy year for all of us. The United States have never been more divided. The COVID-19 outbreak is about to have a second wave. It is unclear when businesses will return to normal – if at all. Artists are among those struggling the most, whose income came predominantly from touring and performing.
There is definitely a sound to what’s going on in the world – and Tommie Sunshine is bringing that to light with a new moody & emotional record label called Brooklyn Blue. Tommie wears many hats, and a full time activist is the one he wears most proudly. Brooklyn Blue is inspired by the current, upside downtempo state of the world. It is also a protest to music itself, having no dance beats, no pop hooks, and no boundaries – a turn away from mainstream music. Their artists are truly artificially unafraid.

Heartbeat Lyfe’s Daft Punk Tracks You Shouldn’t Miss
As a producer that’s been dabbling in hardware synthesis, I’ve been more of a Daft Punk fan than ever. I have been super into their well thought out song arrangement in combination with what sounds like crazy improv synth sessions. Although the list of Daft Punk masterpieces can go on forever here is a list of some Daft Punk hits and deep cuts throughout their entire career.

1) Da Funk
Something about this track makes me feel like the coolest person in the world. From the riff, to the tempo, to the drums. I just want to walk the streets in style.

Gianni Blu Embraces Texture On ‘What It Feels Like’
With four Gianni Blu originals already to its distribution credit, the European imprint has invited Blu back for a fifth ChillYourMind outing, enacted with “What It Feels Like.” With the gilded finish of his prior single “Like Gold” still glinting, Blu initiates a stylistic overhaul on his latest.

Whereas the Italian-Haitian producer’s previous two releases saw him source vocals from serial collaborator D. Lylez, “What It Feels Like” plays host to a cameo from Mingue. Further, although “What It Feels Like” delves into deep house, a subgenre that doubles as Blu’s wheelhouse, Blu’s engagement of the sound on this single differs from what he’s done to date.

Allowing acoustic instrumentation to punctuate the electronic forefront of “What It Feels Like,” Blu integrates texture in an intoxicating amalgamation of acoustic, electronic, and vocal elements that will unsurprisingly further his status as one of the Midwest’s most prominent emerging artists.
