DJs Skrillex, Afrojack, Carl Cox, Benny Bennassi and many others made their way to Soldier Field this past weekend for the 1st entirely electronic music festival in the city- Spring Awakening. I watched firsthand as Lollapalooza’s Perry stage has expanded from a small corner stage to a huge canopy-covered house music experience over the past few years, and there is no question in my mind that electronic music has become increasingly mainstream. Spring Awakening may have been the organizer’s response to the growing house music fad, yet still something was missing at the first of its kind music festival last weekend.

This week’s “Week that Was” is one of my favorites since I started this little feature, so I hope you enjoy. I’m also posting a track that someone sent in after the last post, so I encourage you to do the same! Let me know what we missed, and send your tracks our way!
