Afterlife has had a huge resurgence over the past few years. What started in Tulum has expanded to all over the world from Ibiza to Tomorrowland. Afterlife has taken over The Brooklyn Mirage in the past but none bigger than this past weekend.
They of course brought with them Tale of Us, their pioneers into the dark and visually filled music world. Joining them were more names than you can imagine including Kevin de Vries, MRAK, ANYMA, Argy, and Stephan Bodzin to name a few.
Each of the nights presented a unique vibe allowing those who went more than once to experience something new. The visuals were of course outstanding. Tale of Us left everyone satisfied playing all of their classics from ‘Time’ to ‘Nova.’ For their true fans, they graced the stage starting at 5 AM till sunrise. They played a plethora of IDs showcasing their future. Enough can’t be said about their visuals pairing perfectly to the music.
I enjoyed Kevin de Vries’s set very much. ‘Metro’ is what introduced me to him and his set was stellar and energy–driven. While I didn’t catch ANYMA because they were on Saturday, from videos it looked amazing. ANYMA has taken over the scene with ‘Eternity’ and his brand new album Genesys. I think he will be leading the Afterlife movement very soon if not already.
It is hard to beat a venue like The Brooklyn Mirage. The one-of-a-kind 200-foot wide video wall is something to be stared at in awe. The crowd was wonderful on the night I went as well. It was more calming and older than other shows I have attended. That is to be expected of those who enjoy Afterlife.
Afterlife will be continuing its outreach with shows in Los Angeles. They will be taking over Los Angeles State Historic Park on October 13th and 14th.
