Dabin Brings “Between Broken” to Head In The Clouds Thought+Photos: Dabin at 88 Rising's Head In The Clouds 8/20/22
LOS ANGELES, CA–
“…One of my favorite EDM artists is Dabin, so when it was announced that he would perform at this year’s Head In The Clouds Festival, I was ecstatic. Dabin, who’s originally from Toronto, Canada, is known for his melodic style with elements of dubstep. I had previously seen him on his “Between Broken” tour in March, so I was looking forward to seeing him again in a festival setting.
And Dabin never disappoints. He had a great mix of his own music– “Alive,” “Starbright,” and “First Time”– while also incorporating other remixes and songs to hype the crowd up. One of my favorite moments of the night was when he mixed “Toyko Drift” into Ray Volpe’s “Lazerbeam.” When the beat dropped, the crowd went wild.
Even though nobody was singing live, Dabin’s use of visuals and pyrotechnics was top-tier, making his performance just as engaging and fun to watch. I loved his use of Final Fantasy and anime visuals, especially during his remix of “Gurenge” by LiSA– Demon Slayer’s opening theme song. He also performed live with his guitar, showcasing his skill as a producer and an artist.
One caveat that I did want to mention is that I wish he played later in the day. The daylight did not do his visuals justice, and if it were darker, he would’ve been able to add projections, lights, and lasers, which would have elevated the experience. Nonetheless, Dabin’s performance was great– and I’m hoping that 88rising invites him back for a nighttime performance that will truly showcase his full potential as an EDM artist…”
