Ringing in the New Year with React Presents

Ringing in the New Year with React Presents

Even as winter is starting to sink its teeth in the Windy City, the crew over at React Presents and The Mid are bringing the heat. This week is no exception, with a week full of some of the best artists in the scene right now. First up we have Chicago dance party kings Flosstradamus and MPC Magician AarabMuzik, with local support from the very talented Zebo and hosted by BBU who we caught up with at North Coast. This event is free if you RSVP in advance, check the flyer for all the details.

Next up we got the dirtybird king, Claude VonStroke and booty bass vixen, J. Phlip with local legend and other half of Green Velvet, Jon Huang. Friday the 30th at the Mid.  I’m sure VonStroke and crew have few surprise drops and tempo changes in store, as they have knack for pushing the vibe throughout the night. I am really excited to hear J. Phlip, as she is definitely a rising star in the scene. TICKETS HERE!




And on two nights including New Years Eve, we have one of the debutants of dubstep, Rusko, along side the other half of Major Lazer, Switch. Rounding out the lineup is Sinden who has been a long time staple in drum&bass/dubstep circles. Tickets are still available for the 30th, but SOLD OUT for NYE. Check Craiglists as I am sure there will be people still selling with last minute New Years Plans. This is definitely going to be a HUGE Night!


If they are ending 2011 with this many good events, I can’t wait to see what they have in store for 2012. Check out reactpresents.com for all their shows and lineups including STS9 in early January.
