Polish prodigy Bastian Salbart has gone to the dark side with his remix of "Gravity" by Sied van Riel feat. Alicia Madison!

The first time is always the hardest. On July 11th, the Hudson Project debuted for its first weekend ever, and while the new and unique festival did suffer its fair share of issues and setbacks, there is still much to be said about what the Hudson Project did right, especially with regards to the music in attendance.

Excluding the third day of the festival, which was cut short as a result of inclement weather, the Hudson Project had a wide variety of acts and artists on its lineup, none of which disappointed us in the slightest.
Even before any of the acts began their performance, Lemaitre showed their presence. As people began entering The Westway, some oohed at the duo’s light up three dimensional polygon that was already assembled on stage, some shouted out in excitement instantly recognizing Lemaitre’s signature icon, and a few others drunkenly yelled about how it was a secret alien robot come to destroy us all.
Tomboy welcomed the night with Sarah Aumont on vocals while her partner, William Shore, rocked a few different instruments throughout the course of the show.
