INTRODUCING THE FIRST OF A NEW RECURRING BI-MONTHLY PARTY SERIES WITH VASKI:
Skyline is a party that will be hosted and curated by Vaski. At each incarnation he will bring the most exciting names from across the country to come and share the stage at his hometown party. Skyline will showcase the amazing scene Minneapolis has cultivated with one of the biggest names to come out of our beautiful city.
VASKI is an American dubstep artist whose remix of Usher’s “Climax” is one of the most blogged about tracks of 2012. With all the buzz about America’s take on dubstep and the EDM crossover, Vaski’s star has been quickly rising, though he is by no means a flash in the pan. The young midwestern prodigy is embarking on the wildest year of his career, and Vaski is the name you will hear repeated throughout dubstep and EDM circles on all continents. Oh, and did we mention he’s only 22?
Starting with this first single, Resonate, each of Vaski’s successive releases have enjoyed healthy chart status (all of them have broken the top 10 on BeatPort dubstep, while a few have gone to #1). His tracks have gotten regular support from headlining household names like Diplo, Rusko, Nero, Kill the Noise, Excision and so on, while his own abilities as a DJ have rivaled some of the aforementioned names.
Vaski’s main objective is to make people move. He has recently incited crowds across three continents and nearly a dozen countries to literally lose control of their bodies. As a DJ, 2012 finds the artist touring Australia and New Zealand again, with a European tour in the works. On the production side, Vaski has several things cooking in the pot, including a tough new single, “Insane,” with vocalist Ava, who has collaborated with Lupe Fiasco and Bassnectar. Coming out this summer on Rottun Records.
