NYC Based Videographer, Matt Chirico Creates i_o Tribute

The dance music world is mourning the loss of a very talented artist known as i_o, who passed away this week at age 30. i_o was an artist, that had a clear vision of the type of music he wanted to make. With no intentions to impress people, he took his inspirations and ran with it. Combining influences from the UK rave scene, techno, and acid, i_o took a completely underground sound and brought it to the main stage. From throwing warehouse parties to playing EDC Las Vegas, i_o had a lifetime of music ahead of him. Insomniac payed tribute this past weekend by broadcasting a special livestream dedicated to i_o. Insomniac re-ran i_o's Rave-A-Thon sets, as well as his 2019 performance from EDC Las Vegas.

Friends, fans, and other artists have all been sharing their love for i_o in different ways. Friday, NYC based videographer Matt Chirico released a tribute video shot Eric Bishop from i_o's sold out show in Brooklyn on March 7th, 2020. It was one of the last shows held at the famous Brooklyn Mirage before the COVID-19 Pandemic put the NYC nightlife to a halt. In the one minute tribute you were able to get a sense of an i_o show - Sold out crowds, strobe lights, glitchy visuals and a whole lot of love from the fans. The emotional ending features the endless tweets from artist's sending their condolences.

Matt Chirico has shot for artist's including Steve Aoki, Timmy Trumpet, Galantis NGHTMRE, Slander and Audien. He even got to hit the stage for ACRAZE at EDC Orlando 2019 and DJ 4B at Electric Zoo in 2019. Matt is never slow for projects as he is working on his first ever music video with BREDE. He also intends to put together an animated 2020 event recap!

i_o and his music will live on forever. A big thankyou to Matt Chirico, Eric Bishop & NIGHTMODE Video Production for capturing this iconic night. Check out i_o Tribute | Garret Falls Lockhart in the link below.
