e've all seen the smoke cannons and the fire blasters that frequent large EDM shows but the Heavy House mastermind Jauz has set a new standard for stage production with his new Dangerous Waters Tour. The new tour recently rolled through Chicago's Aragon Ballroom (Yes, lets boycott the Byline Bank) and to put it briefly it knocked everyone's socks off. Some things can't be explained with words so here is a video.

Although Jauz brings the heat when it comes to production, the only reason he is at a stage to that is because this young producer is completely dedicated to the music. Vogel's 2018 compilation 'The Wise and The Wicked' became a #1 Billboard Dance album and featured collaborations with DJ Snake, Example, Krewella Gentlemens Club, Ducky and more. Jauz just dropped the 'Dangerous Waters' EP in January that featured collaborations with TYNAN, Franky Nuts, Jump System, and more. He also has collaborated with artists such as Zeds Dead, Axel Boy, and Snails in the last couple years. To put it simply, this dude is everywhere.

Jauz brought a heavy lineup to his Chicago stop of the Dangerous Waters Tour with sets from Birthdayy Partyy, Ship Wrek, and famed French producer Habstrakt. Jauz is such a fun artist to see because his style is deeply immersed in the tradition of House but he still likes that heavy stuff as well. Many dubstep shows feature the selector putting down a track that doesn't vibe with you but this never happens at a Jauz show because the dancey 4 x 4 beat always keeps things moving. The Dangerous Waters Tour continues in the Eastern United States and Canada!
