Summer is still in full effect, and the Wide Awake Team is bringing that hot fire to the studio as we settle in for another episode of your favorite raver podcast. First up is a family-style sit-down with NGHTMRE and Slander, where the boys reminisce about their longstanding friendship and their plans for global bass music domination.
The low-end vibes continue as a reflective and matured Borgore connects with us on his fledgling Fresh Blood sub-label, as well as his forthcoming jazz album release. Not gonna lie: We didn’t see that one coming. Headliners Nick and Jessica talk about falling in love at EDC Las Vegas and their inspiration for throwing best-laid plans to the wind, downsizing their lives, and traveling the US in a big blue bus. And finally, we tackle the topic of mass incarceration in an eye-opening interview with Lauren Segal and Ben Annand, of nonprofit organization Give a Beat, to find out how they’re using the power of music to give a voice to this important issue.
Wide Awake Stories is a monthly podcast hosted by the Insomniac Editorial Team. Featuring exclusive interviews with DJs, artists, creators and fans, the show shines a spotlight on the vibrant communities and personalities that make dance music culture so unique.
