Everybody makes an "artists to watch list." But we so often miss out on artists that have already done great things without getting the recognition they truly deserve. Yes, watch out for these artists, they will continue to amaze us in 2013, but if you don't know them already, check the talent out and spend sometime listening to their body of work. You will definitely find some new favorites in the bunch.
With all this in mind, we here at Not Some Kid present "13 Artists You Better Know."
Of course we are kicking off with Myndset, a great friend of Not Some Kid. He has begun creating original mixes which are incredible, just like his legendary mixtapes and remixes. Myndset is a Los Angeles based Producer/DJ killing the EDM scene. His sound, a mix of electro and progressive, is best described as heavy hitting yet melodic. He's landed some of the absolutely best gigs out in LA and Vegas, and is starting to see his music celebrity spread around the country with more and more appearances. With unmatched stage presence, a meticulous work ethic, and an incredible ear, Myndset is sure to be the next big EDM DJ.
Timeflies burst onto the scene with their Timeflies Tuesday series and followed that up with an absolute home run with their debut album, The Scotch Tape, released September 2011, which hit #8 on iTunes after just 24 hours. Vanity Fair dubbed the duo, comprised of producer Rob Resnick and vocalist Cal Shapiro, as "musical masterminds". In fact a year and a half later I still frequent that album, as every track is still just so good. One Night, the duo's first EP released Nov. 2012 and soared to #2 on iTunes. They are starting to get the recognition they deserve, the sky is the limit for Cal and Rob.
Adventure Club Dubstep
I literally cannot get enough of Adventure Club. Every single thing they touch turns to gold, and their originals are without fault. In my opinion, two of the humblest guys in the business, Adventure Club really are the definition of genre defying. Their most famous remix, of Flight Facilities & Giselle's 'Crave You' was absolutely astounding, and they have shot to fame in an insanely short period, playing at Red Rocks, EDC and this year at Big Day Out in Australia, with gigs lined up in Hong Kong among other places. They were my most talked about duo of 2012, and I can fully guarantee that 2013 will be an incredible journey for all fans of Adventure Club, as they continue to broaden their production range and hone in their skills.
Do Synchronice even need an introduction here on Not Some Kid? Any regular readers will know how much we love them, and it goes without saying that they are hands down one of the most interesting duo's coming through the dance scene right now. The two brothers have really progressed heaps and bounds in such a small time, and we here at Not Some Kid look forward to watching them on their road to fame.
