Coming off her 6th annual Blu Party in Miami, Sydney Blu finds her way to the Midwest to headline Chicago's underground TECH(NO) series on Saturday, April 18th. Sydney has toured some of the biggest Electronic music headquarters of the world, including Pacha NYC, Space Miami and Ibiza, Avalon in LA, and the recently shuttered Guvernment Nightclub in Toronto. Her new EP alongside D.Ramirez entitled "Need I Say More," has reached the #17 spot on the Beatport Top 100 Tech-house release chart as of today. [soundcloud url="" params="auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true" width="100%" height="300" iframe="true" /] Given the insane amount of attention that Tech-House and Techno has been getting this year, it goes without saying that Sydney Blu has proven that she is ahead of the curve and a trendsetter in the Electronic music industry. Released on Hotfingers via Beatport, Sydney shows off two brand new Tech-house tracks including the massive "You Were The One" and title track "Need I say More." Her release in January of this year via Kevin Saunderson's KMS Records entitled "VUNDERGROUND" is yet another testament to her infectious sound, and as she puts the finishing touches on her upcoming album "Relentless," don't be surprised to see Sydney playing some major gigs over the Summer! As an artist who has shifted her sound from big room to House and Techno over the years, Sydney is excited to show her Chicago fans what she's been brewing up recently - and what a better way to showcase her relentless passion for electronic music than in front of hundreds of die-hard Tech heads at an undisclosed loft space near the heart of downtown! If you have the chance to catch Sydney on April 18th in Chicago, you can still grab tickets via Resident Advisor. I'm flying into Chicago to see this event, so if for some reason you have can't make it, expect a full review sometime next week after I've had sufficient time to recover. "The first time I saw Sydney was when she was on tour with deadmau5. I never thought that, years later, I would be flying her out to play an underground show in my hometown, the great city of Chicago! I'm more excited than usual for this upcoming TECH(NO)," Andrew D. of Reverse Events, weighs in. reverse-techno9-flyer-full-v2-1200x600
