Music festivals are the best way to unwind with your friends and catch a plethora of your current favorite artists, but they are also a great place to catch your new favorite artist! While STS9, Nero, Kid Cudi, Major Lazer and Datsik may instantly catch your attention, here are some new artists to scope out before you head to Mardi Gras land!
Additionally, while this may seem like a full 2-day festival lineup, the good folks over the BUKU have a-whole-nother slew of artists they’re releasing this Wednesday! You already know we’ll be on that like white on rice, so make sure you check back and see who else will be rockin’ the bayou with us come March!
Shlomo – Taking equal influence from chopped & screwed hip hop and sleezy R&B, you’ve probably never seen anyone quite like Shlomo. A quick listen to the mix above will show you what to expect; moody, soulful urban remixes that feel like the purple in Drizzy’s cup. Be sure to check out this LA native in the Float Den.
Poolside – The self-proclaimed “daytime disco” duo can make the slopes feel like poolside. These fun, disco vibes are the perfect way to get your body movin’ and groovin’. Also hailing from Los Angeles, you know these guys know a thing or two about fun in the sun and sexy women dancing. I have no doubt they’ll transform the swampy south in to a chic LA dance party with their groovy beats.
St. Lucia – Brooklyn’s Jean-Philip Grobler used to love Michael Jackson as a kid. It’s a good thing, because the catchy indie dance tunes he’s currently with St. Lucia could only transcend from someone who loves the king of pop. With remixes of Passion Pit and Foster the Kid under his belt, they’re obviously not shrugging off the indie pop edge. Instead they embrace it head on and the result is a series of indie dance cuts that can make anybody smile!
JMSN – The third LA act on this list is JMSN. Who else has collaborated with the Game, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and has that eerie R&B vibe the Weeknd gives off? No-bod-y. JMSN brings his mysterious R&B swagger to the stage with a live band, which is always interesting to check out. He’s caught the eyes of the who’s who in this industry, and there’s no reason why he shouldn’t have your attention as well.
Aeroplane – Aeroplane hails from Belgium, and that means he’s traveling a damn-long way to come and play for you. With influence from the European dance scene along with the 80s indie / disco vibes that we’ve already touched on, his stuff is catch as can be. Be sure to check him out at Buku and get his album In Flight Entertainment for the drive over.
