Electronic duo Breathe Carolina hit the dancefloors hard alongside Ghastly on The Mystifying Oracle 2018 tour. The guys provided support for this haunting tour on several stops, including two this past weekend in sunny Florida.
A special evening on Friday the 13th housed a spooky and wild night at The Ritz Ybor in Tampa, home to the city’s top electronic acts. A large and impressive venue, fans enjoy returning each week to watch their favorite dance artists carry them straight through the weekend, and this time was no exception. Gigantic glowing balls that hang from the ceiling, gusts of blinding and refreshing smoke, holographic 3D-looking visuals, a lot of fantastic music, energy, and more was the name of the game for this one.
Hailing from Denver, Colorado, Breathe Carolina as a whole has had their roots planted in the scene for over a decade. Frontmen David Schmitt and Tommy Cooperman continue on the up and up with their high-octane live performances. Their momentum seems to never end, as they have rooted themselves further and further into the electronic scene, while still maintaining their rock star, punk rock image from earlier days.
This time around they of course featured their super amped up “Rhythm Is A Dancer” collaboration with Dropgun and Kaleena Zanders. In recent months the guys released a follow-up collaboration with Dropgun and Zanders on “Sweet Dreams,” which is an ideal party pleaser with its anthemic ring and powerful trap drop. A testament to their goofy and fun-loving selves, the official “Sweet Dreams” music video depicts David and Tommy running around town while riding in an ice cream truck immersed in sweet and sexy bliss.
Breathe Carolina and Spinnin’ Records have continued slaying the music video game with artsy and playful videos to go with their energetic tracks. In perfect pairing and recognition of the shuffle influx in dance culture, two of their recent videos feature Elena Cruz and Vanesa Seco, both top-notch performers in their art, (and Southern Florida locals, we might add.) Cruz, featured in “DYSYLM” bounces around an electric and whimsical ice cream museum set, while Seco expresses herself in “Feel It” in a kick-ass indoor skate park. With such relentless power behind their tracks, it is a match made in heaven to see equally as infectious and hype visual depictions bring them to life.
Friday night’s set also had moments that hit home with a throwback to Eiffel 65’s “Blue” and the punk rock days of Blink 182 with “First Date.” Core to who they are as artists, the pair still brings out some of their alternative side on stage, even in simple things like the way they scream and engage with the crowd, jumping all over the stage and very in your face – they are a true pleasure to watch and their live performances never get old as they are constantly evolving with time as artists.
