Ben Silver (Orchard Lounge (official))
You might know Ben Silver as one-third of Orchard Lounge, the long-running Chicago DJ collective that also includes Spencer Lokken and Bethany “Queen B” Lokken. The trio’s tag-team sets pack in bass-dropping house and techno, sunset chill-out grooves and other futuristic sounds. Orchard Lounge has had residencies at clubs around the country, including Smartbar in Chicago, Vagabond in Miami and Love in New York. They’ve gigged at established venues like Red Rocks and Hammerstein Ballroom, and major festivals, including Lollapalooza, Coachella and Electric Zoo.
Now Ben Silver is going solo, playing psychedelic house and techno live and producing original material along with songwriting partner David Hammond. In fall 2015 he released the well-received “Solar” and “Lunar” DJ mixes—in October, Beatport named “Solar” one of the “Top 10 Mixes of the Month.”
BlendMode fuses many genres of music, including everything from jamtronica, psychedelic funk, drum and bass, and dance rock, into their own unique musical sound. Their music incorporates high energy rifts and exploratory jams into modern dance beats that feed off the energy of their fans. This four-piece band was founded in 2012 by AJ Gillman (drums), Jamie Doyle (percussion), Joey Cohen (bass), and Robert Reynolds (guitar), with the intention of combining electronic instrumental rock with live improvisational jams. Due to their eclectic range of musical influences, BlendMode creates a musical experience that can be appreciated by a large range of audiences.
