BEWARE THE FRO!
With so many big names coming to Lucky 2014 this year, the question always comes down to who to see and who to skip. With a lineup centered around the back-to-back set of Diplo and DJ Snake and other big names like Clockwork (aka RL Grime), Kill the Noise, Norin & Rad, and Sander Van Doorn, other artists just don’t grab the same attention to festival attendees, especially to newcomers to the electronic music scene. Two such artists are Candyland and Kill Paris. Both artists are well established and have produced some absolutely amazing music, but simply do not have that large scale name power that other artists have. I feel that they deserve a little more attention and should be on everyone’s to see list instead of their skip list as they make a stop on their Killer Fro Tour at this years Lucky.
Comprised of two California based producers, Josie Martin and Ethan Davis, Candyland has proved that they can remix just about anything and make it sound fresh. Touching everything from Justin Timberlake, to The Prodigy, and even Imogen Heap, Candyland
has created masterpiece after masterpiece. And don’t start to think they are a one trick pony with remixes. Their original tracks are equally as magical. Below you will find my personal favorites, but make sure to check out the rest of their music on their Soundcloud.
Not following the rules is one thing Indiana native Corey Baker is good at. Known for his unique sound and style that breaks from the mold of generic EDM
, Kill Paris has some of the most original tracks to grace the electronic scene. He has even been kicked out of a nightclub for not playing enough mainstream music. This is a man I can get behind. He has amazing original content and holds a special place in my heart for his remix of Rudimental’s
“Feel The Love.” Check out the sweet sounds of Kill Paris
that you can expect to find when you see him live at Lucky
