Meet Dylan Halliwell in this week’s #IDSpotlight!
What was your first electronic music event?
I went to a lot of underground shows for years, but my first actual festival was Summer Camp in Illinois.
What/who influenced you to attend your first event?
I was working at a laser tag when one of my coworkers wanted to practice gloving. He sat me down and I just randomly clicked red step by Bassnectar and the rest is history.
What is one moment from an event that was special and why?
One moment from an event that was special… That’s hard. I feel that one of my special moments was when I was in Chicago seeing Seven Lions at the after party and on stage with him and the others from the journey tour. It was different from my typical rail riding but was a blessing to be able to have that time with such a great artist.
What is your favorite festival or event?
My favorite festival has to be Middlelands this year. The camping, the people, the music, the costumes. It was just amazing.
What is your favorite electronic song and why?
Rat Jazz by Midnight T. I love video games and crazy drops so it definitely is the best of both worlds.
Who are your favorite artists?
- Seven Lions
- Dada Life
- Knife Party
What do you feel your “Identity” is in the electronic music community?
I definitely identify as a headbanga/bass head that has a soft spot for the melodic.
Is there anything else you would like to add about yourself for the readers?
If you ever run into me, don’t hesitate to say hi! More than likely you’ll find me with my wife (aka the rail) letting the music take over. (:
