Fanatic Euphoria Erupted At HITC When DPR Live + DPR Ian Took The Stage
LOS ANGELES, CA-
“… The first instance of true “Fan-aticism” … the first of many … that I witnessed at Head In The Clouds was when DPR Live and DPR Ian of the Dream Perfect Regime collective took the stage. Now, I’ll be honest, I didn’t know who these two young men were before I arrived at the festival grounds, but apparently the thousands of voices yelling out their names behind me as I strolled the photo pit clearly did.
After the festival, I had to do a little research to learn more about the DPR collective, and apparently, there are about 8 members who collaborate with each other on individual projects and as a group. Ian and Live appear to be the co-founders. While both Live and Ian have been steadily releasing their own music, which they also took turns performing during the set, this performance seemed to be a signal that more DPR collaborations are in the works.
Their friendship and interconnectedness were fully on display throughout their hour-long performance. They each took turns center stage, knowing when to allow the other to go off on a solo, and they each played off one another when their parts overlapped. Performance synchronism at its finest. During Live’s solo performance of “Jam & Butterly”, he was able to get EAJ, who would be performing the following day, to perform his part on the track.
The fans couldn’t get enough of Live and Ian, and as quickly as they left the stage, their fans begged for an encore. As the dusk light crept through the trees in the brookside, Live and Ian obliged their dedicated fans and delighted them with an additional 3 minutes of DPR bliss, with their fans shouting out the name of their collective to end the encore …”
