#ReUpThursdays Producer Feature: JiKay

Click to Re-up

  By Reed Sligar Out of all the big names in the trap movement, pioneer producer JiKay really stands out. As the founder of Hot Damn Life and All Trap Music, he has really helped exposed budding artists among other things. His innovation and dedication to the craft has undoubtedly paid off and I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to speak with him about his aspirations.   Reed: I must say that I’m really impressed by the talent you’ve showcased on All Trap Music. How do you decide who’s eligible to be featured?   JiKay: When we started the channel, we did a lot of hunting for music on soundcloud and also at live shows. Now that it’s gotten much bigger, the process has gotten a lot more tedious due to licensing issues. We also get an extremely high volume of submissions and sometimes its hard to narrow it down.   Reed: Interesting. What exactly inspired you to start the Hot Damn Life collective?   JiKay: Hot Damn is a relatively new project. The aim of it is to move away from conventional trap music and focus more on hip hop and future bass.   Reed: Have you always been a trap producer or has your style evolved over time?   JiKay: I’m not a big fan of genres. I’ve produced all kinds of music and don’t like to confine myself to a specific label.   Reed: If you were to offer advice to a prospective young producer, what would it be?   JiKay: Keep nothing in mind. The minute you try and confine yourself to a particular sound is when you start sounding like everyone else. The best thing to do is to do your own thing. Don’t try and sound like anyone except yourself.   Reed: If everything goes according to plan in the next 5-10 years, where do you hope to see your label and collective?   JiKay: I want to sign some dope new talent who we can mold into even more fascinating projects. The focus of All Trap Music is documenting the trap scene, and I want Hot Damn collective to be a bit more innovative and on the cutting edge.   Reed: Have you found it relatively easy to break into the music industry or is the process more arduous?   JiKay: I’ve worked in the music industry in various ways for quite a while. But I really owe a lot of my success to youtube which I suppose is pretty crazy. In some ways I’ve been trying to break into music industry my whole life but in another way I found my niche pretty easily.   Reed: What are some common mistakes people make that prevent them reaching success   JiKay: Trying to imitate other people primarily. Ultimately that approach will get you nowhere. Basically it all comes back to finding your own sound. But I guess the most surefire way not to get anywhere is to give up.   Reed: Interesting perspective. Lastly, what do you ultimately want to accomplish through your music and all other marketing endeavors?   JiKay: I want to make money doing fun shit until I die.   Reed: Thanks for taking the time to speak with me. Anything you’d like to convey to your followers and fans?   JiKay: Check out the first All Trap Music EP featuring UZ, Buku, 8er$ and Capsun. All those producers are really talented, so stay tuned!

Lighting In A Bottle - Festival Guide In A Bottle

Click to Re-up

  By Alex Arviso   This Memorial Day Weekend thousands will flock to California for the Utopian getaway known as Lightning In a Bottle. The festival boasts not only an amazing line-up, but hundreds of activities, workshops, and experiences that promote environmental activism and spiritual cleansing. With such a vast array of options being offered, it can be overwhelming to try and pick and choose how you want to spend your weekend. Luckily, we've sorted it out for you, compiling 10 things we know, love, and can’t wait for at Lightning In a Bottle in order to bring you the ultimate Lightning In A Bottle Festival Guide!   Out of the box line-up:   atish-lightning-bottle-78   LIB attendees will be treated to a line-up that is much more diverse than most of the festivals you will find this festival season. Featuring the likes of Flume, Tycho, SBTRKT, Zion I, Alunageorge, and Les Sins (aka Toro y Moi), LIB has booked a tasteful line-up that doesn’t reach for big name cash grabs. The acts range from sultry R&B to to experimental indie and everything in between, catering to fans of all genres.   LIB 2015 Lineup About   2. 15-year Anniversary   This isn’t the first year that LIB has offered a unique experience to festival goers. For the past 15 years Dream Rockwell and the rest of the Do LaB have curated amazing lineups featuring the likes of Moby, Thievery Corporation, Bassnectar, and many more. The event started as a private birthday party in 2000 and has evolved into a public festival with over 5,000 attendees in 2014. Last year the festival found a new home in the nearly 6,000 acre San Antonio Recreation Reserve Area in Bradley, CA, a central coast campground that will continue to foster the growth of this award-winning festival.   Experience_TheVillage_Body1_F   3. The Temple   The beating heart of LIB is the Lucent Temple of Consciousness. Within this temple you will find several workshops, speakers, and live jams that will fortify your spirit and keep you in the right mindset throughout this weekend trek. According to the festival’s website, the temple will be expanded this year to make room for additional features. Included in the expansion will be a larger healing sanctuary, where you can go to meditate or speak to one of the many healers selected to help.   LearningKitchen_JORGPHOTO-e1422566921740   4. The Learning Kitchen   For the third year in a row LIB will offer healthy eating workshops in what is known as the Learning Kitchen. Instructors will provide courses on how to properly nourish your body using both ancient and modern techniques. These classes are meant to teach you how to attain happiness through what you eat. They will include lessons on nutrition as well as tutorials on different recipes that festival goers can carry on with them long after the festival is over.   13BigFreedia_Mezz-16-L   5. Free Water   Lightning In a Bottle was one of the first festivals to include free water as a staple in their experience. If you attend festivals frequently you understand how gracious this is of them. Most festivals do not let you bring your own water and then have the gall to charge $8 per water bottle. This practice has long been admonished in the festival circuit and is slowly being reformed. LIB has been on the forefront of this reformation, going so far as to provide their own water bottles which actively reduce petroleum and other toxins that can be found in natural water sources. This initiative has gone a long way and we hope it will spread to other festivals around the world.   CambingVokab_PE-378x155   6. Camping Villas   Included in every Weekend or 2-Day pass is a tent camping pass, but if you don’t wanna get down and dirty you can always drop some coin on a cozy villa. The great thing about these villas is that for the amenities included, the price is not bad at all. A wide range of options are available for LIB campers, but the cheapest package ($1000) will get you private restrooms, private showers, and access to the Lush Lounge, a private lounge that includes happy hours on coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening. This may sound like a lot, but given that the festival is five days and you are given access for all five days plus more small amenities, this really is a great option for those willing to spend some extra money.   MG_8087-10297644524-1200x360   7. Environmental Focus   Keeping aligned with their original goals, LIB’s main focus will once again be promoting environmental awareness. The festival goes through great lengths to reduce their carbon footprint each year by encouraging festival guests to be mindful of their waste. They have won an “Outstanding Award” three years in a row because of their dedication to environmental awareness and education, the only festival in the U.S. to do so.   lightning-in-a-bottle-wookie-stage-2014   8. The Art   One thing that sets LIB apart from many festivals is its immersive multimedia art format. One could say it is the imagination of LA based art company Do LaB coming to fruition. LIB makes music part of the performance as opposed to the main event. Every section of the event, from the Marketplace to the Village, is filled with artwork created and curated by the Do LaB. This year the Do LaB will be auctioning off festive artworks created during the festival by the Do Art Foundation, a non-profit organization of the Do LaB.   Concert   9. The People   LIB is as much a social movement as it is an environmental movement. It has long been praised for its dynamic and easy going crowd. Lightning In a Bottle radiates positive vibes creating an atmosphere of love.  Fest300 explains it as a “chill psychedelic circus sideshow”. Now that’s a vibe I can get down with.   tumblr_mq1xkrqM6D1rpz612o1_500   10. Reggae Sunday   While there will be many performers at the Lucent Temple, one performance you do not want to miss out on is Reggae Sunday. Lightning In a Bottle has incorporated an afternoon Reggae party into Sunday’s festivities. The party will kick off with a presentation by reggae historian Roger Steffens on the life of Bob Marley. Afterward you can rock steady with reggae and jam bands as well as a few surprises LIB has up their sleeves.   If you would like to know more about Lightning In a Bottle fest, or if The Re-Up just made you realize you need tickets as soon as possible then head over to their website HERE
