Up-and-coming group Adventure Club will bring its brand of “melodic dubstep” to Levels Nightclub, 420 E. College Ave., at 10 tonight.
The Canadian duo — which comprises Christian Srigley and Leighton James — is well known for its tracks “Crave You” and “Rise and Fall,” the latter for which the two teamed up with fellow up-and-comer Krewlla.
Levels Nightclub’s marketing director Jason Weinstein said via email that Space Jesus, Kollektiv and Mike Ginger will be opening.
“We’re going to be giving away meet and greets with Adventure Club every hour,” Tim Crockett, who works with special events at Levels, said.
Weinstein said Levels has been discussing having the group since last year and their schedules finally lined up. Weinstein said he thinks that Adventure Club’s high energy and massive drops make it easy to love.
Crockett said that modifications to the usual set-up at Levels, such as new additions to the sound system, will make for a standout show.
He said all of the disc jockeys will be performing in the same area rather than splitting up into different sections.
Nicholas Rase, Electric Dance Music Club vice president, said he has been listening to Adventure Club for about a year and absolutely loves its music.
“This isn’t your everyday dubstep,” Rase (sophomore-math and Spanish) said. “It’s easy to dance to and much less aggressive.”
Todd Rodeghiero, talent buyer at the event’s promoter Art of Electronica, said Adventure Club’s unique sound is different from any group that has performed at Levels in the past.
Rase said he saw the group live at the Electric Zoo festival in New York and it was one of the best shows he has been to.
Adventure Club’s brand of “melodic dubstep” has a lot of high frequency aspects and purposefully-choppy vocals to add effect, Rase said.
“They haven’t been around that long but they’re going places,” Rase said. “This is the opportunity of a lifetime.”
