Halloween weekend was an amazing time for electronic music in the city of Milwaukee. Last week, I posted my take on the four amazing Milwaukee artists who played the inaugural Jawbreaker Festival. I also got the chance to interview two of those Milwaukee artists and feature them on the last In The Mix show.
In this Halloween show, I got the chance to sit down with the other two important Milwaukee artists who were at the fest and who continue to help the electronic scene grow in our city. RCKT PWR and Plaid Hawaii tell us more about who they are, what projects they were working on and what the future holds for these Milwaukee musicians.
Hear our mix, download the show and get to know these artists below.
Mike and Seth are the head knocking electronic duo that makes up RCKT PWR. Their mark made on the electronic scene here in Milwaukee has been greatly appreciated by many. They’ve packed local venues like Site 1A and the Miramar Theatre and have also played festivals all over the Midwest. They are currently growing their sound in the City of Angeles and have some serious collaborations set for the future. Listen to what they have to say about that.
Jason is a refreshing presence in such a dark electronic scene here in Milwaukee. Wearing really colorful Hawaiian button-ups and rockin’ a live guitar during his sets, Plaid Hawaii is focused on keeping a rich tropical progressive sound going, all while working on several projects.
