Lovers of electronic music spin across a flashing dance floor, bouncing in time to the sonic fury unleashed by DJs while taking on an unreal glow as lasers swoop and dip. The Lights Out Festival throbs with such life, mixing the infectious beats of electronica with the visual candy of video and spotlights. Hip-hop icon Lil Jon, known for hits “Get Low” and “Aww Skeet Skeet,” acts as a blinged-out master of ceremonies who jumps into the act with a DJ set full of crunk—a Southern hip-hop style that blends drum machines, heavy bass lines, and call and response vocals. Also igniting the stage is a ragtag group of electronic mixers, including Brass Knuckles, a trio from Miami who intermingles electro, pop, rock, and traditional house music to create a mélange of dance-heavy tracks such as “Lie to You” and “Bad Habits.” DJ Bl3nd, a Chicago-based spinner, dons an unsettling Chucky-esque mask as he churns out frenetic beats, whereas Project 46 unfurls the results of progressive house experimentation. As the audio-visual stylings of Psyberpixie treat eyes to effects used for Deadmau5 and Tiesto concerts, Loudpvck demonstrates why brainchild DJs Ryan Marks and Kenny Beats decided to let the latter’s last name determine their career path.
