Watch & Listen
Hailing from Montreal, Canada, this young beat maker and DJ is no stranger to production. Starting to produce in his early teens, and now at only 21 years of age, Kaytranada has the work ethic of a seasoned producer.
His influences come from all sorts of genres; genres ranging between Disco, Hip-Hop, House, and R&B. As of the last year, he has made a name for himself through bootleg remixes from artists such as Janet Jackson, Missy Elliot, TLC, Danny Brown, and Teedra Moses. Combined, these remixes have received millions of plays on Soundcloud and YouTube.
Kaytranada’s impressive lineup of tracks improved even more this past February with the 8 track original EP on HW&W Recordings (US) / Jakarta (EU), ‘KAYTRA TODO’. Featuring a track with Los Angeles singer and songwriter JMSN, this EP has received attention from blogs, artists, and press all over the world.
Keep an eye out for Kaytranada, as he plans to take his progressive and innovative production to fans in every corner of the globe.
To raise the new, one must raze the old. For the better part of the past decade, Los Angeles producer/DJ Jerome Potter has utilized his creative efforts toward LOL Boys, a collaborative project that was sparked via an online message board with likeminded DJ Markus Garcia. Undoubtedly a fruitful endeavor, debuting numerous buzzworthy EPs and becoming among the most in-demand DJs in the LA club scene, the LOL Boys recently reached their climax with the release of their most acclaimed record to date, the Changes EP, and have since announced their decision to put the venture on an indefinite hiatus. From the ashes of LOL Boys though, rises Jerome Potter's newfound solo enterprise, Jerome LOL. And now, with the ability to contribute to the entire greater whole rather than just half, Jerome LOL is set to continue right where LOL Boys left off: further exploring uncharted spectrums in modern dance music while still maintaining the unique, Internet-fueled aesthetic.
For Jasper Patterson AKA Groundislava, creativity combined with the video game, sci-fi sounds and general aesthetics of the 1980’s have been instilled since day one. A young 20 year-old hailing from Venice, California, Jasper’s father both animated and directed the classic “Take On Me” video by A-Ha and while Groundislava isn’t exactly the next logical step from the Norwegian new wave group, Jasper takes that same creative freedom and emotion and injects it into a sound grounded in beats, video games, technology and self-proclaimed “nerdy shit.” As part of the Wedidit Collective (helmed by his old schoolmate Henry Laufer, better known as Shlohmo), Groundislava is the next representative stepping into the light and exposing a group of youngsters each with their own nonchalantly expert takes on forms of beat and electronic music.
Though now splitting her time between Miami and Brooklyn, XLR8R’s “artist to watch” Jubilee will always be Brooklyn’s bass sweetheart. Known for her rambunctious combination of upfront bass music, UK house, and tropical flavors, she has become a surefire remedy for ailing dancefloors around the globe.
Co-opting her name from the X-Men character who shot fireworks out of her hands, Jubilee works similar magic when she steps into the DJ booth. But she’s also simply Jess, the one-time South Florida raver who grew up obsessively listening to Miami bass on the radio and dancing the night away at underground breaks parties. After making the move to NYC, she quickly infiltrated the DJ circuit and began turning heads with her knowledge of all things bass.
It’s the sweet mix of underground bass and tropical vibes that brings Jubilee from clubs and warehouse parties to the comfort of your own home. Her radio show Fireworks, on both Brooklyn Radio and Electric Soundstage (iHeartRadio’s new electronic station), continuously features fellow global producers such as Sinden, Bok Bok, Mike Q, and Star Eyes. Prior to Fireworks, she has DJed on East Village Radio and put together well received guest mixes for “The Mix Up” on Australia’s Triple J Radio and XLR8R Magazine’s esteemed podcast series.
