EDC Discovery 2014 Favorites
It’s that time of year again…hundreds of unknown producers around the USA are hustling, trying to make a name for themselves by winning a timeslot at America’s premier electronic music festival, Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas. There were over 400 total entries, and although difficult, we managed to narrow down our favorite entries to a list of 4.
From LA, BlackGummy is one of the strongest entries in the entire contest. The mix is a vibrant electro house set of unreleased originals, collabs and mashups. Having been trained by none other than Steve Duda (BSOD), we expect nothing less than a really refined sound. The best tracks were “Lullabye” – a bold, shiny, bass-ey, electro house track as well as “Deep Bounce”, w/ Louis Vive, which is a sick, groovy, futuristic take on the electro sound we all know and love.
Another standout contestant, Goliath, out of the San Francisco Bay Area, threw down a very diverse set including some of his unreleased originals, collaborations, mashups, and classics. The standout tracks of the mix were his originals “My Name” which is a funky take on big room house with hints of deadmau5, Skrillex, & Wolfgang Gartner, and “Supersonic”, w/ BlackGummy, which is a dubstep-infused electro heater kind of like what BSOD and Knife Party would sound like if they had an audio baby. We can’t wait until these are released and hope to see him drop these tunes at EDC.
Goshfather & Jinco
Bridging the gap between future, trap, and big room, Goshfather & Jinco made a very impressive mix full of originals and bootlegs. The best track on this mix is their original “KilaKali” which is a filthy next level future-trap track that is guaranteed to make your booty shake. Keep your eye out for these guys – they are sick.
For our final favorite, we present LA house duo “Louis Vive” (formerly known as Blastranauts), whose music sounds like a fusion between pop, deep house, melbourne bounce mixed with that classic LA banger sound. The vibe of this mix is fast paced and diverse, exhibiting their production skills as well as their technical ability in the live realm as dj’s. The standout tracks in this mix are the unreleased tracks “Deep Bounce” (as I already mentioned before, it’s just too good not to mention again), and the opener “Downbeat”, feat. Gavrielle”, which is a groovy tune that showcases the vocals of up-and-coming LA singer Gavrielle.
