8 Things We Learned at Electric Forest 2019

Another year of Electric Forest has come and gone. For the first time since 2016, Electric Forest took place over just one weekend.

As you’ll quickly hear, Diplo adds a ton of high-energy percussion to the record while still keeping the vibe of the original intact. Max Chung

NGHTMRE & A$AP Ferg – REDLIGHT (Flosstradamus Remix) | Stream

The dance music community exploded when NGHTMRE and A$AP Ferg collided on the potential festival anthem “Redlight.” The tracks obnoxious rap lines do the trick as it immediately injects you with energy. It was a given that the original would see renditions from many but the one to stick out from the pack is Flosstradamus‘ new remix. The trap icon adds a new height to the original and elevates its liveliness. Omar Serrano
