The Yost Theater is, yet again, putting on their acclaimed Havoc Thursdays in Santa Ana, CA on January 23rd with two compelling headliners. The first, Protohype (Max Hype), is a 22-year-old music producer that is predominantly Dubstep, but his tracks are also influenced by Hip Hop, which contributes to what he has declared his music as; a new type of genre called “Dub Hop.” His “See No Evil” EP, released last year on Firepower Records, features his track “Turn Up the Bass,” which is significant to the Dub Hop (Dubstep/Hip Hop) genre his music acquires. Protohype is signed to Firepower Records, first established in 2012 by owner Datsik (Troy Beetles). The two have also worked together and produced a track called “Murder Style,” which has massive bass and abides to strictly Dubstep. Protohype has also done some work with other producers like 12th Planet (“Like This”-Protohype & 12th Planet) and ETC! ETC! (“Bad Boy Flow”-Protohype & ETC! ETC!). Max Hype’s stage name, Protohype, can only mean a successful show at the Yost Theater. He is a prototype of himself, considering the fact he has created his own genre, and he is original. Therefore, we can only expect an exceptional performance by the prosperous producer.
The second of the two headliners, are two up and coming EDM producers that team up and call themselves Caked Up. The duo is comprised of Oscar Wylde and Vegas Banger (Jeff Saville), who created Caked Up about a year ago. The newcomers are predominantly trap producers that focus on beats that will cause a lot of twerking and a lot of bass. They have released some of their tracks on smaller record labels, but they are not signed to any specific label. Their original tracks, such as “Pop That Thang,” “Money in the Bank,” “New School Twist,” are definitely worth checking out, but they also have a special expertise in remixing. Oscar Wylde and Vegas Banger can turn any song of any genre into an EDM tune with trap elements. They have taken many mainstream songs and remixed them, such as “Wrecking Ball” by Miley Cyrus, “Royals” by Lorde, “M.A.A.D City” by Kendrick Lamar, “Applause” by Lady Gaga, and more. Caked Up has recently come out with their remix of Zedd’s “Stay the Night” ft. Hayley Williams from the band Paramore, which has an upbeat tempo that makes anyone want to dance. Caked Up’s original track, “Ass Down Twerk,” reached #13 on Beatport last year, so we know that these guys are progressing to make it big. Oscar Wylde has become a sensation on the very popular Vine App with 1 million followers currently, where he asks his followers what they want to hear, and then himself and Vegas Banger remix what the majority of followers ask for. It seems as though the pair know exactly how to get some publicity, which always makes a show interesting. Terio, another vine sensation, made a lot of noise with his popular phrase “Ooh kill em,” so Oscar Wylde and Vegas Banger decided to create an original remix (Terio—Ooh Kill Em’ Remix) that caught the eye of many music producers, such as 12th Planet, who dropped the track at EDC Orlando. Caked Up also recently opened a show for Ookay, an amazing trap producer and a Yost Theatre veteran, this month. Caked Up gives their fans exactly what they ask for, so the outcome of their set will be nothing less than satisfaction.
