EDM duo ‘Adventure Club’ to perform on SMU campus
This Thursday, Oct. 22, EDM’s standout duo Adventure Club will bring their U.S. tour “When Darkness Falls” to Dallas’ Southside Ballroom.
Canadian born duo Christian Srigley and Leighton James began mixing music together in high school in their hometown of Montreal. Their style, marked by the use of delicate female vocals and upbeat melodies accompanying electronic sounds and heavy drops, is inspired by big name EDM DJs such as Skrillex and Tiesto.
The duo’s newly released single, “Crash 2.0,” is their first piece of original music since the release of “Fade” feat. Zac Waters in 2014. Most notable was their main stage appearance at Electric Zoo’s 2015 festival, where they released their new mix “Superheroes Anonymous Vol. 7: Road to Electric Zoo.” This single features chart-topping songs from popular artists such as Fetty Wap and Beyonce mashed with an electronic flair, which creates a high energy and extremely fun mix.
Strigley and James’ current U.S. tour is sponsored by RECESS, a music and ideas festival exclusively for college kids. Backed by business mogul Mark Cuban, this festival is a collection of new brands and startups as well as hit new music acts, all operated or created by students and young adults in aims of inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs.
These festivals include “playgrounds,” an interactive networking fair allowing students to learn about new startups and successful business; “office hours,” which is a speaker series; as well as an idea pitch competition and a concert to culminate the event.
Since its launch, RECESS has visited over 25 college campuses and has raised more than $12 million. On Oct. 21, RECESS will take over the SMU campus with a playground from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., office hours from 6 to 7 p.m., an idea pitch competition from 7 to 8 p.m., and finally on Oct. 22, a performance by Adventure Club as well as artists Shaun Frank and Paris Blohm.
