I was first introduced to the boys of Bayside High while out in Scottsdale AZ for a show CaliParis did at Wild Knight. This 26 year old dou had already caught my ear during their opening set for CaliParis just based on their song selection. I’ve heard A LOT of opening sets, and I have to say A LOT of them sound the same. Bayside High played some tech house tracks that I thought only my friends and I would know. They also controlled the crowd perfect setting it up almost surgical like as the passed the decks off. After meeting them and talking I was hooked on the personalities of Bayside High, and what they represented in Scottsdale. Here is an interview I just did with them as they are featured on Electronica Ent.’s monthly podcast EAROTICA.
