X5IGHT announces the release of their brand new single entitled, "Riot Kings", featuring fellow Chicagoan, Teriszega. "Riot Kings" blends dirty dutch, electro, and dubstep influences to create a unique track that will surely be heard in the sets of DJ's across the world! Released on Wednesday, September 25th, 2013, "Riot Kings" is now available directly through X5IGHT or Teriszega via their respective social media.
According to X5IGHT, "We are always bouncing works in progress to each other, and one day we sent Joe [Joe Grothe aka Teriszega] a track idea that he really liked, so he asked us if we’d be interested in collaborating on the track together. Jerry and Joe grew up in the same town, so they had been talking about working on a record for a while before we ever started "Riot Kings". We had 4 or 5 different studio sessions to complete this track. It was really convenient because we all live so close to each other! We have producing styles that fit each other very well. Every session, we were continuously molding the track into what it is today."
X5IGHT is a DJ/Producer duo (Brandon Levinson and Jerry Kurty) from Chicago, IL. They focus on producing electro/progressive house tracks and vocal edits. However, X5IGHT does not limit themselves to these genres when producing in the studio or mixing live. X5IGHT believes that the beauty of dance music is to be able to read a crowd and deliver a unique show for each performance…and they do just that.
Levinson and Kurty have both been producing individually for several years, and decided in November 2012, to put their knowledge and talents together. While Jerry attends Harper College in Chicago, and Brandon is at Indiana University, they still manage to finish numerous tracks due to their “production sessions” on Skype. They released their debut EP, “The Radiance”, on iTunes and Beatport in July 2013.
With the release of original tracks, remixes, and vocal edits, X5IGHT has received recognition and support from numerous EDM publications (DJ Mag, Elektro Daily, This Song Slaps, Fist in the Air, Ragetracks, Most Addictive Electro, Digi10ve, Electronic Midwest, & Wantickets.com) and fellow artists such as Krewella, 3LAU, Cazzette, Paris Blohm, J-Trick, Sirensceol, & Mutrix. Get “X5IGHTED” because this duo is just getting started! [from X5IGHT biography]
