What You Don’t Want to Miss at Hyperion Music and Arts Festival
Every festival calls for a solid “prioritizing” session. Who you want to see, bands that you haven’t seen, time conflicts, and even down to when you are going to nap on what days. It is time to take a load off of those shoulders and let Sensible Reason recommend some artists not to miss at Hyperion Music and Arts Festival.
Heavy hitters first: Break Science, the brainchild of Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee. These guys recently released a track featuring Redman titled “Who Got It” under the Pretty Lights Music Label. They have been deep in the festival scene for over two years now. Adam Deitch, the electro-group’s drummer, is a founding member of the Royal Family Records (RFR), which is a host to his other groups Lettuce and Dr. Klaw.”It was around the age of 10, after I had been playing drums for 8 years, my mother told me my drumming skills along with my knowledge of melody and harmony would lead me to producing records for people,” Adam said on the RFR’s website. He has drummed and produced for 50 cent to Wyclef Jean and Justin Timberlake.
Jaik Willis will be adding to the variety of this music festival. By variety I mean crazy acoustic cover choices, like his Metallica cover of “Master of Puppets.“ He is known for throwing together collaborations as well, like he did with Old Shoe at Summer Camp Music Festival. If you’re lucky though, you will get to see him play electric guitar. During Summer Camp 2012 I witnessed him cover Led Zeppelin‘s Dazed and Confused, and it may have surpassed Robert Plant’s vocal capacity. Skeptical? See what he has in store for Hyperion.
Cosby Sweater is a band that is gaining huge notoriety. This band tastefully adds to the collection of bands with saxophone and drums featuring electronic music. They just released their third studio release #Coolstorybro earlier this month. Check out their funky cover of Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky” below.
Finally the last artist you literally want to see is not a musician but he is a designer. Buddha Bones had a spectacular exhibit at Electric Forest this year. It will be exciting to see what is in store for Hyperion. If you were at Electric Forest or last year’s Hyperion and saw his stuff then you know I am just preaching to the choir.
