Are you ready?

It’s a simple but necessary question when Crisis Era steps to the decks.

The hyperkinetic hard dance duo of Matt Bekh and Silas Wind broke out of Western Canada (Vancouver, to be exact) armed with an arsenal of soul-shaking, floor-quaking beats for the world.

“The dance music scene in Canada is stronger than ever,” they explained ahead of the group’s set at Insomniac’s forthcoming two-day Halloween festival, Escape: Psycho Circus. “DJs of all different styles are killing it up here, and there’s no shortage of parties for the fans.”

With the duo repping hard for Western Canada, they insist that their country is not one for East Coast/West Coast beef.

“We wouldn’t call it a competition. People rarely travel across the country for music festivals in Canada,” they explained. “Just a bunch of people looking to have a good time.”

Fans psyched for the Crisis Era experience should dial up this exclusive highest-energy mix from the duo, chock full of storming tracks and body-moving remixes from rap heroes like Cardi B.

“Our set at Escape will be a little different, because we’re doing a back-to-back with Wasted Penguinz,” they revealed. “Expect our signature crossover style, combined with their trademark melodic vibes. It’s not our first time playing with them. It always turns out to be something special.”

As for how they’d explain themselves to a dance music fan new to their sound, the guys kept it simple and direct.

“We are known for our energetic live performances. If you’re ready to completely lose your shit on the dancefloor, come by our set and party!”

The group has a variety of releases to look forward to in the near future, promising “a bunch of collabs with guys like Yellow Claw, Mike Cervello, Ibranovski, and a few other others. Look out for us performing live in the States, Canada, and the Asian circuit over the coming months.”

When pressed about their Halloween costumes for 2018, the guys are keeping their plans under wraps (“We wouldn’t dare spoil the surprise”). Still, we were determined to get some spooky information out of the duo, and they eventually relented when asked to share the scariest record they could think of: “Just google ‘terrorcore,’ and brace yourself.”

Crisis Era is playing at Escape: Psycho Circus 2018, which takes place Friday, October 26, and Saturday, October 27, at the NOS Events Center in San Bernardino, CA. Tickets are on sale now. For more information, visit the official website.
