Hard, Hard Summer

Hudson Mohawke at Hard Summer 2015 Purple Stage

It’s a completely different festival, backstage. You forget that there are 65,000 people out there when you only see a dozen of your friends inside an air-conditioned trailer park. Most of them utterly exhausted from festival after flight after festival. The hardest part is the waiting and the watching someone you care about on the brink of collapse, pulling themselves together because their job is to make a sea of strangers happy. That somehow when you haven’t any, the energy must be brought to a pounding pitch.

So you drink as much as you can find, smoke as much as you feel alright about missing a set

and try to find some sanity amongst it all.

Which is hugging your mates from different states and shores.

Getting silly with the sponsored marketing ploys and remembering to enjoy
what you came here for

the music (duh)

and the booty.

First Name Greatest: Maxime Quoilin

They say the best camera is the one you always have with you. Other than my iPhone, I’m blessed with toting around one of NYC-via-Belgium’s brightest Creative Directors and candid Ricoh moment capturer, Maxime Quoilin, with me at most times.

Borrow my +1 on this visual gangster’s backstage pass and enter his striking metropolitan cool aesthetic world of elusive DJs

like Cashmere Cat, Lunice, Baauer, Oneman, and more

at unforgettable parties

like Ed Banger’s 10th anniversary

with old friends

like myself and DJ Slow

and in new cities

like the parts of yours yet to be discovered.

To follow Max on his street cred level ups:

you’ll be hooked, bien sûr.
