What’s up, Headliners!? We’re back with another fresh episode of your favorite podcast: Wide Awake Stories. We took a quick break from the DJ booth, and now we’re coming to you once again with another round of awesome interviews, hilarious chats, and some proper tunes for your earholes. Plus, we’ve got a whole new crew of hosts, including Shailee “Shai” Ben-David from the Insomniac Records crew.
For episode #17, we had a (tequila-fueled) chat with the genre-blending duo GTA about their “Death to Genres” approach to their original music and live shows. Speaking of 17, we caught up with Marc Kinchen, the dance music legend known to house-heads around the world as MK, about his global breakout single “17” and his health regimen on the road.
The Wide Awake crew also discusses the different ways to improve and sustain your health and self-care in our crazy, hectic festival world. And we’re introducing a brand-spanking-new music segment called “New Yu,” where our Music Editor and guru of fresh tunes, Sam Yu, dials us in to the hottest tracks filling our playlists.
