Favorite ThisThe Untz Envision panels with Random Rab, Ken Jordan (Crystal Method)

Published: February 25, 2015

EnvisionAnticipation builds for this week's Envision Festival with the announcement the fifth year festival has officially sold out. The Untz will be hosting panels Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the festival, with artists from across the electronic spectrum, and as varied experiences and backgrounds as their music. The Untz Podcast host Anand Harsh will bring together producers, live instrumentalists, permaculture specialists, and more for fun panels covering the changing music industry, festival culture, and whatever crosses their minds.

On Friday, February 27, things kick off with Ken Jordan of The Crystal Method, as well as his wife, Janine Jordan. The pair are co-founders of Electronic Music Alliance, whch turns the rabid popularity of electronic music into political action, environmental action, and a myriad of social justice programs. They'll be joined by permaculture and sustainability experts Ryan Rising and Stephen Brooks.

Random Rab, SaQi, and special guests will discuss trends in studio and stage sounds on Saturday (February 28). The resurgence of house music and drum and bass will on the agenda, as well as what's turning these producers on when they sit down to produce or assemble a set list.

On Sunday, March 1, we FUNK CANADA. Stylust Beats, Stickybuds, and DeFunk break down the electronic music scene up north, and tell us how it's different than anywhere else on the planet. What's up with Canada, eh? We'll find out.

Each panel runs from 4-5pm on The Village Stage. Envision kicks off tomorrow (February 26), and runs through March 1 in Uvita, Puntarenas on the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica.
