Spinning To Success: The Inaugural Origins Festival

The first-ever Origins festival was every bit successful. Despite the intimate, single stage set-up, impressive crowds drew to Rawhide for the inaugural one-day festival in Chandler, Arizona. “The response we have received from the RBDeep brand is reflective of the growth in interest of deeper music, which made this the right time to take it to the next level, this is just the beginning for Origins, and I can’t wait to see it evolve in the years to come,” said Thomas Turner, founder of RBDeep.

The venue’s brand new Riverwalk hosted Duke Dumont, Lane 8, Justin Jay, Autograf, Nora En Pure, EDX, and Sean Watson from sun up to sun down. House music was spinning and crowds were jumping. Each artist had their own eclectic set-up, featuring unique artwork, lasers, and lights.

EDM fans enjoyed underground sounds for what felt like a long, but eventful day. The festival slowly but surely grew to a packed house, despite getting somewhat of a late start. Festival Squad was there as soon as gates opened to scope out the grounds.

Food and drink options were rather basic, as well as the overall set-up, though that wasn’t the focus of most attending. It was all about the music – and the music did not disappoint.

Nora En Pure‘s sunset set was every bit relaxing as it was exciting. If deep house and indie pop had a baby, it’d be her sound.

Autograf played their own wildly popular hits like “Move All Night” and “Sleepless in NYC” while mixing in other fan favorites like Fisher’s “Losing It”. The duos silhouette fell upon a rather impressive production.

Lane 8‘s rather emotional set delivered a melodic sound through and through. It’s not shocking that his fan base is so massive, and growing every day. His music beautifully translates to a live crowd or to the walls of your bedroom. He knows no limits.

Duke Dumont closed the night out with “I Got U”, which had the crowd singing along like it was their last night on Earth. The producer proved his chops not only as a DJ, but as a talented artist and performer with his upbeat and energetic set.

The team behind Relentless Beats’ produced events are proving time and time again that they know how to throw a festival. They know what artists will draw crowds, they know what’s needed to run a successful event, and most importantly, they know that Arizona’s EDM fans will come flocking.

If you haven’t made it out to a Relentless Beats festival, we highly suggest you add it to the bucket list.
