Prydz & Prejudice: Top 5 Remixes for Saturday's IDentity Festival

Saturday the IDentify Fest returns to town to once again take EDM out of the dark of the club and into the light of day. Your humble blog writer missed last year's show, so I'm curious to see how well glowsticks work during the daylight.

While this year may not feature big names like Pretty Lights and Steve Aoki, that doesn't mean the lineup isn't impressive. Top tier acts this year include the dupstep-loving guys in Nero, electro-house maestro Wolfgang Gartner, and 20-year-old Skrillex-affiliated complextro mastermind known as Porter Robinson (that's three drinks for those playing at home).

That said, the night really belongs to main-stage headliner Eric Prydz. All I really know about the guy is that he makes different variations of house music and he hates flying, so I hit Spotify a made a playlist of some of his remixes to get me up to speed. Check out the following tracks and read on as I overanalyze the list of things we're allowed to bring to the venue.
