    Default What other electronic stuff should I check out this year?

    So who are the best electronic acts this year in your guys' opinions? I'm already excited for a few artists, and want to know some of the others worth checking out. I checked out some great sets that went down last year in the Yuma (Four Tet, Ritchie Hawtin, Maya Jane Coles) per your advice, so I'd love to find a few more for this year. Currently I'm planning on seeing:

    Bonobo
    Flume
    Shlohmo (maybe. he was super boring last time I saw him at Low End Theory)
    Darkside
    Netsky (maybe, dunno how in the mood for D&B I'll be)
    Disclosure
    Rudimental
    Maceo Plex

    So if I'm missing anybody essential, let me know. Maybe a brief description or youtube link of the artist(s) would be cool?

    Thanks in advance

    Bicep is really dope. Will be a great early Yuma set. Played B2B with Simian Mobile Disco a couple times.





    If you're into Nu Disco, you got Classixx, Poolside, The Magician, and Aeroplane.





    And Cajmere, the Deep House Moniker of Green Velvet, is going to play a great set in the Yuma.

    Well if your into trap you might want to check out: UZ, GTA, Flosstradamus, Carnage, Dillion Francis.

    But if you're into more of that funky stuff, Duck Sauce never disappoints (In my opinion) Armand van Heldon and Atrak definitely have put on a show!.

    By the way I really hope your wrong about Shlohmo lol Im so pumped for his set.

    Happy Coachella

    Hot Since 82 is pretty great. If you like Disclosure and Maceo Plex, you'll probably like this.





    Check out Sleeping is Giving in for great mixes and other cool stuff

    I'd just stick to Martin Garrix, these other guys will be playing in the Yuma which is second class. Everyone knows the big guns play the Sahara. Garrix is the youngest most prominent DJ in the world right now.

    I would say check out a couple of these as well:

    The Magician (Seen him 4+ times in SF, he is always a blast, funky dance party)
    Caravan Palace (Lot of fun, funky dance party)
    Duke Dumont
    Aeroplane
    Flight Facilities (Also a lot of fun)
    Art Department
    Lee Burridge (Plays at burning man alot)
    Damian Lazarus (Plays at burning man alot)
    Nicole Moudaber (TechHouse)

    Has anyone seen TJR before? Listened to a set of his and sounded like he could be a good time.

    Dont listen to him....hes being sarcastic (well for his sake I hope so).

    If your going the second weekend, the Do Lab has some really good stuff going on as well (French Express Label, DJ Tennis, Thugfucker). IMO anytime you stop into Yuma, you will be hearing great beats. As you mentioned, Darkside will be a treat as well (hoping for a Jaar DJ set somewhere during the weekend).

    Aside from Fatboy Slim, these are the only Sahara acts I plan on seeing. Not a fan of Electro House anymore, but TJR and Deorro have some quality productions that should be a decently fun daytime dance party

    These are all great suggestions..well most of them. Anyhow don't forget to wonder around,explore and let your ears guide you. There's been several instances where I've been at Coachella and unexpectedly discovered, caught and enjoyed sets by groups/artists/DJ'S that I would have never thought I'd like. Follow your instincts, you just might end up surprising yourself.

    If you like your electronic dark and heavy, you NEED to check out Carbon Airways.

    I hope to someday die of spontaneous human combustion, and in my final moments, I want to give each and every one of you a hug.

    I'm surprised no one's mentioned RL Grime yet! One of the best trap DJ's I have ever heard. This is his most recent release. It was a collaboration with Whats so not(flume and emoh) This song is incredible. Nearly brought me to tears when I first listened to it.
