In the span of some years, Alison Wonderland has change into one in every of EDM’s most wanted performers. Her second album Awake was an ideal mix of ‘bangers’, collabs, and even a little bit of pop to make it accessible to nearly any listener. She’s clocked in collaborations with some unbelievable artists alongside the way in which like Wayne Coyne (Of the Flaming Lips), Breakout hip hop act Trippie Redd – so when she introduced her latest collaboration to the response that she did – it was little question that it was somebody of an enormous caliber. In a fast tease in a video from music pageant, Dillon Francis and Alison Wonderland introduced their collaboration was in the works – and with an enormous track like this what’s one of the best ways to have fun? A tour in fact.
The two kicked off the tour January 31 in Madison, WI and are taking it throughout 15 cities in the U.S. The tour consists of two full-length units from AW and Dillon Francis with the duo taking turns closing out every evening. We had the possibility to go to the Chicago date at Navy Pier on February 2nd.
Due to venue logistics and Navy Pier’s early closing time, Alison Wonderland needed to take the stage a bit sooner than most would anticipate along with her set beginning promptly after Diablo’s at eight pm. She introduced it on twitter – however even with the announcement her set began off to a half empty ballroom – however it didn’t take lengthy for it to refill with AW’s loyal fanbase.
If you had the possibility to expertise AW’s preliminary Awake tour – you recognize she likes to convey extra to her performances than simply CDJ’s. Her cello was certainly in attendance – bringing one other stage of artistry. She continues to contribute dwell vocals to lots of her songs, and even performs a dwell mashup with Virtual Self’s “Ghost Voices” along with her track “Easy.” As “Ghost Voices” performs, she sings the vocals from “Easy” dwell for a very unbelievable expertise. If it’s one thing AW excels in is taking part in out as many genres as doable, together with some unbelievable remixes of songs her loyal fanbase already is aware of. She included a pleasant little medley of home songs which included Disclosure’s “A Fire Start to Burn” and Fisher’s “Losing it.” The spotlight of the evening for me was the gang reacion upon listening to the second drop of “Church” when she unleashed the Party Pupils remix.
Dillon Francis closed the evening – and he didn’t maintain something again. He performed by means of his big catalog of songs from his Moombahton heaters that first blew him onto the scene to a set of songs from his new spanish language album. Dillon Francis performances haven’t skipped a beat. If folks weren’t dancing their asses off on the dance flloor – they have been cackling at Dillon’s hilarious visuals synced up completely along with his tracks.
Who knew Alison Wonderland and Dillon Francis would make an ideal match.
