New York’s premier multi-genre festival, Governor’s Ball, returns to Randall’s Island this weekend with a variety of electronic talent in tow. The Governor Ball returns for its fifth year in a row and is paying particular detail to the electronic-orientated acts on this year’s line up. Govball has enlisted acts like Ratatat, Rustie, and Flying Lotus to leave an electronic impression on New York’s festival-goers. Brooklyn-duo Ratatat debuted “Cream on Chrome” during a stunning set out in Indio for Coachella and they are returning to their hometown this Friday with an assortment of new music that contains shredding guitars, tripped out drums, and mind-bending visuals from the multi-faceted duo. Another performance that everyone will be talking about is Deadmau5. Joel plans to debut his latest stage production to close out Saturday night that he has kept under wraps for well over a year. Don’t miss out an awesome performance!
Flume premiered his latest original alongside Miike Snow vocalist, Andrew Wyatt, and its safe to assume that this talented Australian has more than just one new track up his sleeve for Saturday. Flying Lotus is anything but ordinary. Fans should expect a journey through his vast back catalog- come for hits like “Never Catch Me” featuring Kendrick Lamar and stay for classics like “Until the Quiet Comes.” Another unique name on this year’s lineup is the Scottish producer, Rustie. He has a habit of chopping and screwing his own productions on the fly during his performances. Don’t miss out on his set this Saturday that will take you on thrilling trip through bass heavy soundscapes.
