Freaky Deaky, a Disco Donnie Presents festival, has been originally based in Chicago. But for 2018, and now 2019, there is a second Freaky Deaky location in Texas. Taking place where Something Wicked and Something Wonderful used to happen, Freaky Deaky has replaced Something Wicked as Texas’ Halloween festival. Freaky Deaky will be this October 26th and 27th at the Sam Houston Raceway in Houston, Texas.
Just after wrapping up a successful inaugural Ubbi Dubbi Festival in Dallas, Texas (see our review of Ubbi Dubbi here), Disco Donnie Presents announced the first phase of one of their other Texas festivals. Flyers with the date and location of Freaky Deaky were passed out among the masses at Ubbi Dubbi, but no lineup was revealed until the week after that festival ended.
The first phase of the 2019 lineup includes a super diverse mix of trance, house and bass music. Trance legends Armin van Buuren, Cosmic Gate, and Spencer Brown will be bringing the melodic, progressive beats. Tech house bangers Chris Lorenzo, Dombresky, Fisher, Green Velvet, Malaa, Shiba San b2b Walker & Royce, Tchami and Tim Baresko will be taking over the dance floor. Deep house artists Yotto, Luttrell, and Lane 8 will be giving you all the feels. Bass house kings AC Slater and VOLAC b2b Phlegmatic Dogs will get your heart beats pumping. And finally, the bass producers SubDocta, Space Jesus, REZZ, Ganja White Night, Getter, CloZee and CharlestheFirst will be bringing that hard, heavy sound all weekend long.
Artists Not To Miss
Originally one of the three members of the M Machine, Luttrell has since stepped away and started producing his own unique sound of deep house. Influenced by everything from the sunsets of his San Francisco hometown to DJing the playa at Burning Man, Luttrell’s unique brand of melodic techno has seen him gain heavy support from many artists around the world. Now a mainstay of the Anjunadeep touring family, Luttrell has performed at major venues and festivals like Holy Ship, the DoLab at Coachella and Tomorrowland, plus supporting Above & Beyond, Rüfüs Du Sol, and Lane 8 on their US tours. He kicked off the year with his debut artist album ‘Into Clouds’ and an accompanying 23 date North American tour.
Tim Baresko is a French tech house producer working with many different artists and labels at the moment. He has released tracks on Claude vonStroke’s Dirtybird, Shiba San’s Basement Leak, Sola Records, and Sonny Fodera’s SOLOTOKO. He has also worked with the likes of Clyde P, Gene Farris, Shiba San and Mercer to produce some out of this world techno and tech house bangers. He’s currently on a massive US and Canadian tour with Shiba San, called the “Parlez Vous Français Tour,” since both Shiba and Tim are from France. The tour runs through the spring and into the summer, where Tim Baresko will be playing at many festivals across the US and Canada, including Freaky Deaky.
Whether you like trance, deep house, tech house, bass house, dubstep or experimental bass, this massive lineup really has something for everyone. Freaky Deaky will be the place to be this Halloween and really has out-competed most everyone in terms of Halloween festivals. Where, and what, will you be this Halloween?
