London DJs to see.
Vibrant DJs in London are making the radio in current weeks, with some being the norm on air and off on club appearances and worldwide shows. The following are some who just recently made the grade and promoted themselves in London.
Many DJs just really like a bit of anonymity occasionally and this masked-wearing mystery man is no exception. Following on from SBTRKT and Fake Blood (two established producers who transformed themselves from behind face-hugging disguises) comes Route 94. What we understand so far is this: his banging house cuts like 'The Future' have been played on Annie Mac's Radio 1 show and he made a pretty storming premiere at Skream's Skreamizm party in Brixton in November. His genuine persona was punted as being anyone from Art work to dubstep prodigy Dream, but mask or no mask, we're just hoping for more releases in the coming year.
A teenage duo who've been making a few of the finest club-ready pop music internationally right now, Bondax have currently turned plenty of heads with remixes of AlunaGeorge and Rudimental. Like last year's breakthrough stars Disclosure, the pair take a passion for 2-step bass and house grooves and tailor them to sensual R&B vocals. Catch them in their element in the coming 12 months.
As a marketer and resident at 2 of Time Out's preferred nights-- the vogue/ballroom-obsessed House of Trax and the Chicago-slanted Rhythm Talk-- Rushmore's mixes and sets have actually blown our minds into little pieces numerous times over the last year. This year nevertheless signifies the long overdue launch of some original Rushmore sounds on the recently established Trax Couture label. His H.O.T. EP 1 is a trove of seriously nasty and stripped-down ghetto bangers that have had good support from the Night Slugs staff along with New Jersey ballroom don, MikeQ.
This imaginative artist experiments with DJing, development and design, a potent mix. Employed as a developer and designer Tim Parker has been a prominent persona at Mixcloud, adding to the overall look of the site and application so that other DJs and radio hosts can be heard anywhere, anytime.
As a DJ, he has a show called You'll Also Know, a display of other rising DJs on NTS Radio.
Big on the blog sites in 2013, Canadian producer Ryan Hemsworth overloaded the web with a server-busting string of reworkings and bootlegs of everybody from Frank Ocean and Grimes to the long-lost Craig David (who, charmingly, gets a lot more credit in the States than he does at home). Hemsworth acknowledges Hudson Mohawke as an influence, while footprints of The xx's moodiness likewise sneak through in his hazy and stripped-down rendition of hip hop, in addition to the hyper-melodic bombast of M83. Expect his own solo work-- such as the syrupy crunk of 'Colour & Movement'-- to make a big impact within the subsequent 12 months.
