Hailing from the City of Angles, gLAdiator, the musical vision currently pioneered by Dan Goodman and Ian Johnson, has illuminated itself as a promising and progressive presence in the electronic music arena. Goodman and Johnson have made a notable and and lasting impression on listeners as they have and continue to bring new life and flavor into trap, a domain of electronic music that is often over-saturated with repetition and lacking new, innovative musical ideas. But their influence does not stop there. Though the duo is quickly rising the ranks in the sphere of trap, they have showcased a keen capacity to produce across the spectrum of electronic music, bridging sounds and styles from the likes of moombahton to dub step.

With energy intensive live sets and a stedy stream of content for listeners to get their feet wet in, gLAdiator will undeniably be etching its presence into what is in store for electronic music in the months and years to come. For those not familiar, get acquainted with the duo through our recent interview where Goodman and Johnson silence critics on trap, touch on musical transitions, and reminisce on their learning experience from playing abroad.

After an unfortunate cancellation due to the blizzard that stormed through New England back in February, Steez Promo and NV Concepts are finally bringing MEGA back to the northeastern shore-board. Due to the success of the first New England MEGA, it was only fitting that the event returned to the area. Come Saturday, Worcester Palladium will be housing what will undoubtedly be the rowdiest party in Massachusetts.

With incredibly talented headlining artists, anyone missing out on this is surely passing up on one of the hottest events of the spring semester. General admission tickets are still on sale and if you’re in Amherst, MA bus passes to the event and back are on sale but act quickly; there are only forty-two left last time we checked. Without question, this is the spot to be this weekend so cop tickets while you can and be sure to check out the recap video for the previous MEGA in New England.
