On Friday, September 27, the Anjunabeats summer tour comes to a close with an epic final show with Norin & Rad and Maor Levi in the heart of downtown Chicago at the newly renovated Palladium Nightclub inside Castle. Over the course of July through September, the globally renowned label Anjunabeats took its sound across the USA and Canada, and are now bringing two of their most promising new acts to Chicago for this grand finale event.
Since emerging with 2011’s uplifting “Bloom”, California’s Bruce Karlsson and Nick Sember aka Norin & Rad, were named breakthrough producers of the year by Above & Beyond. They have released a stream of forward-thinking singles on the label such as Anjunabeats Volume 10 anthem “Aldo” and their recent smash “Bird Is The Word“—a track which picked up support from names like Above & Beyond, Kaskade, Madeon, Seven Lions and Porter Robinson, as well as Ferry Corsten and Gareth Emery.
Another essential component of Anjunabeats’ creative heart, Israel’s rising star Maor Levi, debuted on the label with 2006’s “Lital” at just 17 years old. Taking the term prodigy to a new level, in years since, the producer has consistently moved his sound forward with hits like the genre-blurring “On Our Own” with Bluestone, the brilliant Boom Jinx & Ashley Tomberlin collaboration “When You Loved Me” and his recent smash “Holding On” with Armin van Buuren, Arty, BT and Morgan Page amongst his many fans.
“It’s hard to think of more consistent contributors to our label than Norin & Rad and Maor Levi. Just about every set we play includes a handful of their productions and they are all great guys to boot. As two (or should that be three!) of the most exciting and forward-thinking producers around it is great to have them representing the family.” – Above & Beyond’s Tony McGuinness
A venue that has been rooted in dance music, especially trance, for over 20 years (formerly Vision Nightclub within Excalibur), Castle’s space has hosted the likes of Armin van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk, Cosmic Gate, Gareth Emery, Tiesto and even Above & Beyond themselves. Now, after a six month, $3-million remodeling process, the nightclub has relaunched as the multi-venue, “Castle,” with its nightclub Palladium hosting 3-D projection mapping on its stage, state of the art LED installations and a pounding Void Incubus sound system.
