Ending 2013 with a 25,000 person paint party in Miami, Life in Color “World’s Largest paint Party” is returning to Washington on May 17. Brought to you by USC Events, the Tacoma Dome flood gates will open at 7:30 p.m. and all entries must be 18 years old. With Steve Aoki, Adventure Club and Blasterjaxx headlining the bill, you can be sure Life in Color :: UNLEASH will be a night to remember.
Chances are even if you aren’t a huge fan of EDM, you’ve heard of Steve Aoki. The man has worked with and been featured on tracks with Kid Cudi, Iggy Azalea, Lil Jon and others. Aoki’s most recent work includes single “Rage the Night Away,” with Waka Flocka Flame. As the headliner for Life in Color, Steve Aoki isn’t just a DJ. Aoki is a label owner, producer, fashion executive and philanthropist. The Steve Aoki Charitable Fund supports medical research and raises money for health issues around the world. Don’t put Steve Aoki in a box, because he is more than just EDM music.
Duo Blasterjaxx, is the least known of the three Life in Color headliners, but that doesn’t mean everyone won’t know who they are soon. Thom Jongkind and Idir Makhlaf formed in 2010 when Jongkind was operating under the name of Scalix. Originally Blasterjaxx was Jongkind and another producer but eventually the two parted ways and Makhlaf came in as his replacement. Still relatively young, Blasterjaxx has continued to grow exponentially. The duo’s most recent work includes the single “Echo,” which dropped April 21 of this year.
Better known duo, Adventure Club, rounds out the headlining bill for Life in Color. Canadians Christian Srigley and Leighton James first came together as a hardcore pop-punk band, but have since found their calling in dubstep and filthy EDM. Adventure Club hasn’t officially released anything since 2013’s Calling All Heroes EP, but the duo has said they would like to put out a full length album this year and Calling All Heroes Part 2 is also rumored to be in the works. Fans will have to wait patiently to find out what Adventure Club does next.
