Register for a Chance to Win Weekend Passes to Voodoo 2017

Tuesday morning, the Voodoo Music and Arts Experience will release its talent lineup for this year’s festival. Voodoo will take October 27-29 in City Park, and this will be the second year that C3 Presents will produce Voodoo, which benefited from a more focused lineup with a more intuitive layout last year that addressed previous years' soundbleed issues. At a time when even the festival’s good years felt provisional, Voodoo 2016 raised the possibility that a corner had been turned.

Men of the Year

In this week's Freshly Spilt Milk, our playlist includes new music from rappers Jayaire Wooods and Lil Yachty, as well as tracks by house and techno classicists Erick Morillo and Kevin Saunderson, electronic music made from found sound in Senegal and Gambia, and remixes of Beck, The Crystal Method and Freddie Gibbs.

Buku: Tristan Dufrene Gets Organized

Tristan Dufrene is careful to point out that she’s not producing yet. In the electronic music world, “DJ” and “producer” seem to be used almost interchangeably, but she’s the former and not the latter. She mixes songs, but she doesn’t make her own yet. 

“I’m working through all the knowledge about being a DJ before I move on to start producing my own material,” she says.

The Sound of Buku

Buku returns to Mardi Gras World Friday, March 11 for two nights, and late last week organizers posted the schedule, with Kid Cudi closing the Power Plant Stage Friday night and Pretty Lights' live band headlining Saturday. Both close the outdoor stage at 11 p.m., but the music continues on the two indoor stages until 1 a.m.
