Road to Imagine 2019: 5 Acts You Can’t Miss on the Amazonia Stage

Tipper

  • From relaxing ambient music to glitch hop to live scratching over hip hop beats, Tipper creates beautiful soundscapes, rhythms, and abstract noises creating a spacious and reality-altering atmosphere that you cleanse your soul. Accompanied by some of the most intricate and welcoming visual art you will ever see, Tipper is one of those artist that I will do whatever it takes to see any set of his. With a kind and dedicated fan base, I promise Tipper will be one of the best sets you’ll ever see. I highly recommend searching for his 2019 Camp Bisco set on YouTube for a little taste (link below).

G Jones

  • Greg Jones, aka G Jones, is a rising legend in the electronic community after releasing his debut album, “The Ineffable Truth” in 2018 (link below). Greg has changed the way people are able to think and enjoy music with his perfect balance between powerful and vibrant, brain controlling basses and the angelic and emotional chords and melodies. Every song he is a part of will take over you mind and body in one way or another, being one of the best acts you can see at Imagine this year.

Jade Cicada

  • Jade Cicada will give you all the heavy and funky weirdness you need at Imagine this year. His sounds remind me of biting into a fresh, crisp apple. This probably doesn’t make much sense, but go listen to his song “Beefcake” and tell me I’m wrong (link below). His live sets are full of energy and unreleased music, so get ready for a live show you’ll never forget.

Detox Unit

  • Squirmy, bubbly, juicy bass music: Detox Unit. I first heard of him about a year ago, and I was immediately in love. His groovy beats and extraterrestrial environments draw you into another world, and he is one of the talented few who can make an entire set feel like one whole song. He has multiple mixes on SoundCloud (link below) that you need to listen to to get a little taste of what he’ll be bringing to Imagine.

Thriftworks 

  • Whether you are trying to take some time to relax or get moving, Thriftworks has the perfect remedy for you. While he serenades you with thought provoking melodies and smooth bass lines, there’s always a little extra flavor on top. I’ve witnessed this man rap over his own beats live while modulating his voice with otherworldly effects and completely taking DJing to a new level. Whatever acts you have on your schedule, make sure you Thriftworks is on that list.
