Welcome to Glassetonbury!
Glasse Factory is excited to host a tournament designed to showcase several up-and-coming acts we’re excited about, with the winning band receiving a prize package that includes stage time at this year’s Deep Tropics! The tournament, which we’re calling Glasse-tonbury, will feature artists that submit. Their performances will have been reviewed by a collaborative panel made up of Glasse Factory and, for this edition, Deep Tropics team members, and the matchups will be voted on by you. For each matchup, there will be a link to each performance, a brief description of the songs/artists, and a link to a poll where you can cast your vote.
About Deep Tropics
Deep Tropics is produced by forward-thinking, dance music enthusiasts at Full Circle Presents. The creative site and stage design is led by art director, Aaron Martin and will take the energy to stratospheric levels. The one-of-a-kind amphitheater in the park ensures every viewpoint is perfect with a beautiful downtown skyline view in the backdrop. Intricate lasers, choreographed LED, moving lights, and art installs will illuminate the park. The venue is less than a mile from auxiliary party locations, downtown Nashville, and some of the city’s coolest districts.
Deep Tropics’ mission is to be the greenest festival in the United States. They are a climate positive event which simply means we create more energy than we use. These efforts are fueled by our non-profit organization Deep Culture, Inc which exists to curate experiences that activate transformation of self, community, and planet. In 2021, 79% of festival waste was prevented from entering the landfill. The proceeds from Green Disco Eco-Bands allowed us to plant 59,000+ trees in Kenya and help offset our carbon footprint. Many of Deep Tropics’ art projects are created from sustainable materials such as hempcrete & aircrete. Additionally, Deep Tropics has a zero waste initiative to ensure everything is either recyclable, compostable, or re-usable. Regenerative design is at the forefront of every aspect of the festival.
At long last, the time has come to crown a champion! The Final Four saw us say goodbye to two more incredible talents, but this final matchup is going to be a big one! In one corner, Atlanta’s own prodigal son, Alexion, and in the other, the genre-bending wizard himself, D!lemma! Listen to their mixes and read their bios below, and be sure to vote for the one you most want to see on the Deep Tropics lineup this August. This one is gonna come down to the wire!
This Round’s Match-Up…
Alexion vs. D!lemma
There is no debate that Alexion is one of the youngest producers to have successfully emerged in the Atlanta EDM scene. Since the beginning of his career, his passion for persistence and success was what got him to be one of the youngest DJs ever to have played at some of Atlanta’s biggest nightclubs, music venues, and music festivals. After ending his career as a big room producer, he decided to move up to Nashville and get into melodic house and techno where he became inspired by the sounds of Camelphat, Anyma, and Massano.
Under his old alias, he’s built a respectable name and reputation for himself, racking over hundreds of thousands of streams under his belt as well as working with artists releasing under labels including Revealed Recordings and Spinnin Records. As he began to grow even bigger, his releases started gaining support from DJs including Martin Garrix, Alok, Nicky Romero, Hardwell, Yves V, and Cuebrick in addition to airing on radio stations including Tomorrowland One World Radio and one of Spain’s biggest radio stations, Radio Nacional.
D!lemma, the entrancing genre-bending Wizard, is a rising artist reshaping the realm of music through his mesmerizing methods of song composition and DJing. D!lemma has crafted a discography encompassing Experimental Bass, Dubstep, Mid Tempo, Drum and Bass, Bass House, and Techno. With his alluring switch-ups and spellbinding sound design, D!lemma is undoubtedly a magical force poised to make a lasting impact.
