Loud Luxury fans had a sensational wake-up call Monday morning (May 11) when the EDM duo hosted a daytime rave for their Billboard Live At-Home set to raise money for MusiCares, which provides emergency relief for the music community.
The nearly 20-minute DJ set felt like one of their late morning poolside gigs in Las Vegas, where the two were originally set for a 2020 residency before the coronavirus pandemic. Yet Andrew Fedyk and Joe Depace made their at-home venue with a breathtaking view of the Los Angeles cityscape less homey and more club-friendly. Miniature white strobe lights dotted the table with their equipment, with billowing smoke occasionally wafting from behind them.
The duo treated their energized viewers to all four songs on their new Nights Like This EP from March: “Nights Like This” with CID, “Gummy” with Brando, “Aftertaste” with Morgan St. Jean, and “Cold Feet.” Fedyk and Depace clapped their hands over their heads as if they were rallying a rowdy crowd underneath them and not screens apart from them. “Great way to kick off your Monday. Let us know how you’re feeling in the comments right now,” Depace announced in his microphone, checking the pulse, or vibe, of the show with routine DJ banter that typically calls for real-life screaming and not online commenting.
But under the circumstances, Loud Luxury pulled off a spectacular sounding set that got everyone raising their arms via emojis and stoked once the EDM group closed everything out their Brando-assisted hit “Body,” which hit No. 10 on Billboard‘s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart back in August 2018.
