Dancing Astronaut’s Artists to Watch in 2020Rinzen Eoy

2019 has been an undeniably remarkable year for electronic music, but what will the next decade bring? The Dancing Astronaut team has its fingers on the pulse of the coming months—notably artists who saw an immense upward trajectory in 2019 and are primed for a big 2020. These artists aren’t necessarily freshman newcomers, but rather established artists to keep a close eye on next year. In no particular order, we present our Artists to Watch in 2020 list.

Subtronics

Subtronics had an impressive 2019, boasting a side to bass music unique unto the cyclops army general himself through catchy fills, grotesque sound design, scintillating syncopation, and provoking dubstep arrangements. Known off-stage as Jesse Kardon, the Philadelphia producer rounded the year with a certified viral, festival hit with “Griztronics,” a collaboration with dance music’s lovable, sax-touting, electro-funk Michigander, GRiZ.

Aside from the bigger font size on lineup cards, the sound slinger boasted numerous grade-A collaborations from touted veterans such as Ganja White Night on their “Headband” offer and Rusko with “Bounce.” Other partnerships included the visually appealing “SNAILCLOPS” with Snails and the menacing “Step Aside” with “Midnight Tyrannosaurus.” After success on the festival and streaming stage, the up-and-coming engineer unleashed a furry of audio with his Wooked On Tronics.

Finishing off 2019, the friendly creator is rounding out the year with a Kayzon collaboration, “BRAINCASE.” He of course also has a Zeds Dead collaboration. Get prepared for a thrashing 2020 that can only bring more carnage, because he’s not stopping or slowing down anytime soon.

Wax Motif

G-house, tech-house, nu-disco, hip-hop, Wax Motif can sweep it all up in a song with a flick of his wrist. The longtime scene staple has experienced nothing like a shortage on the original release front over the years. But it wasn’t until 2019 that he unrolled official album plans. 

And what a rollout it was

The first single to usher in the impending album, poised for a 2020 release, also stood as the first single shared via Wax’s newly minted self-started record label of the same name, Divided Souls. “Divided Souls,” a proper modern-day tech-house stomper, ups the ante for G-house fanatics, featuring a sermon-like vocal cut from the preeminent Diddy—yes, that Diddy. Most recently Wax shared, “Lose Control,” featuring the swiftly ascending Matroda, and sampling the late great Missy Elliot, for a dynamic update to an iconic early 2000s dance floor display. 

2020 has plenty of promising developments on the Waxy horizon, between his album plans, new Divided Souls releases, his prolific touring track record, and expected activity from his House of Wax mix series.

Ben Böhmer

For Ben Böhmer, there might inexplicably be no better way to cap off the year than with his debut album. Delivering the awe-inspiring Breathing filled with thematic nuances and progressive shades, Böhmer has poignantly strategized his gentle climb to the top with a steady stream of releases that have unearthed his grasp on ethereal sonics and conjunctively associated him with prolific peers. From his first appearance on esteemed deep house label Anjunadeep‘s Explorations 04 with the potently dreamy “Flug & Fall,” the Berlin talent had already cemented his ascent as a burgeoning act of his own. Consistently reaping radio play from Above & Beyond‘s Group Therapy, Böhmer has also received support from Ferry Corsten‘s Corsten Countdown, Cosmic Gate‘s Wake Your Mind, Aly & Fila‘s Future Sound of Egypt, and more.

While Böhmer’s full potential has hardly been breached, the culmination of his efforts in 2019 is just on the horizon. Coalescing with label mates Luttrell and Spencer Brown on “Gibberish” and “SF to Berlin” respectively, the fledging Berlin producer has transfixed melodic listeners in the studio and on stage—performing at not only Anjunadeep’s Open Air and Explorations circuit, but also supporting Lane 8‘s This Never Happened tour. Now, Böhmer looks to accelerate his career with his own world tour in support of debut LP Breathing and undeniably prepare for what will be his most defining year yet in 2020.

Peekaboo

Peekaboo began gaining recognition in 2018 with his Wakaan-backed Imposters EP, as the cinematic “Arrival” shared a glimpse into his previous education as an audio engineer for horror films. Towards the end of 2018, the Michigan-born producer released scintillating bass squirmer “Babatunde” alongside G-Rex, which received multiple makeovers on a Wakaan remix pack released at the beginning of 2019 including a special VIP remix from the two original creators that graced festivals across stages celebrating deep 808 cuts. 

Another early 2019 highlight is the most popular remix—according to Spotify streams—of Zeds Dead and Jauz’s dual imprint-backed “Lights Go Down,” which combined the slashing and ASMR synths atop rumbling low end that have placed Peekaboo in a box outside boxes, crafting sounds that are unique to his style. In March 2019, he released his four-track Wrecking Ball, which debuted at No. 10 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Album chart. The real wrecking ball offering came later that month with the thrashing Bassnectar collaboration “Illusion” featuring Born I from the bass forefather’s Reflective (Part 4) series.

After early success in 2019, the bass maven joined REZZ as the premier feature on her Beyond The Senses tour celebrating her debut self-released extended play, a stamp to the artistry and momentum garnered by Peekaboo this year—and sure to continue for the foreseeable future.

Drezo

The wait for word from the Drezo camp has made for a slow-crawling 2019. Earlier this year, he announced a new EP series, Omens, alongside a standalone single, “Afterlife” from the first batch of tracks. While the electro insurrection was mighty, fans were certainly hoping for a full-length release from the fiercely sought-after LA producer this year.

Despite a multitude of delays with the EP launch, Drezo’s been able to summon a preternatural level of patience from his vastly attentive fanbase.

“I just want to represent where the heart of my whole entity lies,” Drezo recently told Dancing Astronaut of the impending EP series. “The dark, gritty club vibe, an atmosphere, really, which is very addicting to some people.”

He’s known for his “evil” earmark: a deliciously disturbing strain of mid-tempo bass. He’s proven adept enough in the production arena to garner official remixes for the likes of Destructo and Tchami, and is a known accomplice of the ever-elusive DJ Hanzel (aka Dillon Francis). 

So while 2019 may have had Drezo’s tour schedule firing on all cylinders, he’s undoubtedly saved the original material for 2020. Don’t touch that dial.

Vincent

Robert Hughes, under his Vincent moniker, already has a lot in store for the start of the new decade. Since stepping on the scene in 2015 with a still-popular remix of Alison Wonderland’s “U Don’t Know,” the Canadian artist has blossomed his career into a vibrant soundscape of dance and techno music.

Accompanied by a world tour at the beginning of the year, his EP For You is his most vulnerable and masterful collection of tracks to date, featuring lyrical and emotive songs, a departure from his typical invigorating electronic sounds. He worked with vocalists like Pauline Herr, Brooke Daye, sad alex, and Love, Alexa on the five-track EP, adding new layers and textures to his sonic palette. Aside from the successful EP, Vincent released many singles throughout the year, most notably his “Falling, Fading” solo venture, his single featuring The Griswolds, “Lost and in Love,” and a collaboration with Naderi, “Wasted Time.” 

Wasting absolutely no time and relishing in his success, Vincent will embark on another world tour starting in January 2020 with The Griswolds.

ATTLAS

It’s been a fairly quiet 2019 for mau5trap mainstay ATTLAS, but that doesn’t mean something isn’t brewing. After much anticipation, the Canadian producer finally revealed the third installment in his beloved Storyline series in July, ending the year-and-a-half drought since the sophomore’s drop. Additionally, he treated fans to his EDC Las Vegas back-to-back set with Rhett on SoundCloud and even put together an edit called “boxed machinery” after hearing how well the two songs went together during the set. ATTLAS regularly played shows in 2019, including a mau5trap label takeover in London in August and a slot on deadmau5’s Cube V3 tour in September. But the best was yet to come.

In the last month of the decade, the talented producer revealed that he’ll be starting 2020 with a bang—with the release of his debut LP, Lavender God. The first single (and track six from the album), “Sinner Complicated,” arrives on Dec. 6. The artist calls the track a “textured and atmospheric roller that progresses with narrative intention from the beginning.”

While there’s no set release date for the album, ATTLAS noted in a Facebook comment that it would be arriving in less than two months via mau5trap.

Rinzen

Armed with a vision of world-building through sound, Rinzen and his rise as a house and techno storyteller have dawned rapidly. Entangling multimedia influences of cinema and literature with music, the Los Angeles artist has constructed his own brand to be experienced as a full-immersion concept—flush with visual-inducing soundscapes and intriguing pictorial electronic styles. Catapulting his career beginnings in 2017, Rinzen has garnered the early support of deadmau5 with accumulations of several mau5trap releases since including two official deadmau5 remixes, “acedia (ov)” and “Monophobia.”

2019 has only capitalized on his meteoric developments with scything collaborative executions at its finest and an exponential tour front. The mau5trap fixture released three EPs in the year alone, initiating solo efforts on Prologue while joining forces with Mulya and Sobek for Mirrored Screen and Evan Casey and Marb on Torus. The creation behind Torus proved a triple threat: spotlighting Rinzen’s driving force behind the formation of Desert Hearts Black, marking Rinzen as the first release of the sub-label, and witnessed him opening the warehouse launch party. Simultaneously, Rinzen’s tour presence has grown momentously from one booking a month to career-defining triple header dates while also reaping in debuts at Ultra, EDC, Desert Hearts, and more. As his name calls, Rinzen has only just geared up to give 2020 a “sudden awakening.”

Nina Las Vegas

Nina Las Vegas has had herself a hugely successful 2019, and all ears are on the Australian artist to take her powerful girl-boss energy into the new decade.

NLV has cemented her status as an EDM tastemaker, with hosting positions on both Triple J and Beats 1 Radio. Towards the latter part of this year, the artist also (finally) collaborated with old pal and fellow Aussie Anna Lunoe for an absolute club detonator titled “One Thirty.” The track was released on Lunoe’s longtime home label, Mad Decent, as well as on Nina Las Vegas’ own imprint, NLV Records.

“It only took 15 years of friendship and [collaborating] in every other aspect of our life to finally build the courage to work on a song together,” she said of the track. “With so much shared between us already, it might have been the easiest day in the studio for each of us.”

The producer’s electric energy is funneled towards all things music, and she’s a passionate advocate for the revitalization of Sydney club life. Those interested in catching a Nina Las Vegas set can see her at Friendship 2020 on Jan. 6.

Fox Stevenson

Fox Stevenson‘s rise has been steady over the course of the past several years, but it’d be hard to argue that any year has been more prominent for the producer than 2019. After releases of varied genres on Liquicity, Monstercat, Disciple, Spinnin’, and more, the 27-year-old UK producer decided that this was the time to put together a live band, a debut album, and a live tour. Killjoy hit the airwaves in full in October after tracks like “Out My Head” and “Dreamland” had gradually trickled out. In a brief documentary released on his YouTube channel, the artist noted that it’s “scary” to put out music like the tracks on Killjoy when he was getting bookings for DJ sets where he needed to play heavier music, but when it came down to it, the singer/songwriter knew the time was now. He says this process has been about getting back to what he is “at [his] core,” and his current work has been part of that self-discovery.

With an even farther-reaching sound, the sky’s the limit for Fox Stevenson in 2020 and beyond.

Seismic Dance Event unveils daily lineup, topped by Cirez D and TESTPILOTSeismic Dance Event I O

For the second year, Seismic Dance Event makes its return to Austin, Texas to bless attendees with two days of world-class performances. In September 2018, the inaugural event brought a stellar lineup to the Travis County Exposition Center, including Lane 8, Drezo, Golf Clap, Green Velvet, Sacha Robotti, and more.

In 2019, festival organizers look to build on last year’s success by bringing in headliners Cirez D and TESTPILOT, along with a piping hot array of other artists like Bicep, Idris Elba, Nic Fanciulli, Gorgon City, Nora En Pure, and more.

Now, the festival has revealed its daily lineups, featuring deadmau5’s TESTPILOT alias topping day one and Eric Prydz’s Cirez D moniker at the top of day two at The Statesman. Saturday, Nov. 16 will also feature acts like Chris Lake, i_o, and Rinzen, and Sunday, Nov. 17 will bring performances from Lee Burridge, Gorgon City, Dom Dolla and many more. Along from the dynamic lineup, the festival will also feature live painting and art installations, live performers, totem, and costume contests.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the glowing feedback from our debut year and now with this year’s lineup,” said RealMusic Events & Seismic co-founders Kelly Gray & Andrew Parsons. “Many US festivals tend to have very similar lineups so we really wanted to switch it up and cater to the more seasoned, underground connoisseur – and yes, believe it, in Texas.”

Marbs, Evan Casey, and Rinzen release their long-awaited ‘Torus’ EP to ring in Desert Hearts Black launch

It’s time for Desert Hearts to take a foray into the deep end, courtesy of founding crew member Marbs and family member Evan Casey. The two share a profound connection when it comes to their musical tastes and vision, and after years of friendship they’ve joined in launching their own venture, Desert Hearts Black. To commemorate this special occasion, they’ve teamed up with Rinzen for a powerful inaugural EP, Torus.

Its three tracks have been floating around for quite some time, with “Helix” notably earning a play during Deep Dish’s live-streamed Coachella Weekend 1 set. That particular piece is a heater of a piece, roaring into its climax with intense analog riffs and extraterrestrial progressions. Likewise, the EP’s title opener carries similar elements, packed into a heavier foundation that packs a sizable impact on the dancefloor. Finally, the middle track “Ark” is a lighter fare that shows off the three’s keen ear for hypnotizing melodies. Overall, an unsurprisingly impressive kick-off to what’s set to be a strong addition to the Desert Hearts catalog.

RÜFÜS DU SOL‘s imprint Rose Avenue has welcomed a notable new talent into its fold: Southern California’s Rinzen, who’s been making waves over the past few years with official remixes for Giorgio Moroder and deadmau5, and releases on esteemed labels like mau5trap, Steyoyoke, and Chapter 24. He makes his Rose Avenue debut via an uplifting new take on rising duo Lastings’ latest, “I’ve Got You.”

Warmth from the analog synths used in Rinzen’s remix emanates through the speakers, providing a comforting home for the original vocals to shine through. The rendition serves as a lighter offering on the Rinzen catalog, but shines as brilliantly as his more brooding works. Expect this tune to circulate far and wide as a late summer anthem.

Desert Hearts goes deep and dark with new sublabel, Desert Hearts Black

Most know Desert Hearts as a fun-loving crew touting House, Techno, Love across the world. Crew members Mikey Lion, Lee Reynolds, and Porky often purvey a lighthearted, fun tech sound; but their fellow cohort Marbs has always maintained a deeper, more driving musical aesthetic. Together with Desert Hearts regular Evan Casey, the two have now manifested an entity fitting their collective mindset in Desert Hearts Black.

Desert Hearts Black will be a sublabel of Desert Hearts Records, meant “for those in our family who enjoy heavier, darker, more journey driven sounds,” according to Marbs. To capture this idea aurally, he and Evan Casey have tossed up a long-awaited single: “Torus,” their collaboration with Rinzen that is also part of an upcoming EP of the same name. The track has been rinsed to great success in all three of their sets for the past six-plus months, and it’s easy to see why; its psychedelically arranged melodies and pounding percussion send listeners straight into a different realm.

Those in LA will get the chance to celebrate the label launch in person through a special warehouse party in August where Thugfucker will also be a guest. More details are available here.

Rinzen’s third EP is a cinematic ‘Prologue’ for what’s to come [Review & Stream]

Rinzen’s third EP is a cinematic ‘Prologue’ for what’s to come [Review & Stream]Rinzen Prologue Press Shot

Over the past two years, Michael Sundius has become a mau5trap fixture. His brand of cinematic, progressive techno as Rinzen has earned him numerous releases on deadmau5’s esteemed imprint, as well as the coveted honor of opening for Zimmerman himself at shows around the globe. And, while this success, for many, would mark the culmination of a musical career, Rinzen’s newest release suggests that he sees the past as a precursor for what’s to come.

Entitled Prologue, his third EP acts as a conceptual work, which Sundius notes is “inspired by [his] fascination with literature and storytelling.” He further asserts, “I believe this to be my most cinematic work yet.”

It’s not difficult to understand how Sundius feels this way, either. The two-track offering works almost as a reflection of itself. Both songs — “Prologue” and “Sorcery” — stand exactly at six minutes in length, but each builds a world that is almost diametric to the other.

In the “Prologue,” Rinzen explores mellifluous leanings, weaving a wistfully hopeful sonic scape, punctuated occasionally by purposefully strident, albeit subtle synth-work.

As one would likely expect from its title, “Sorcery” dabbles in the dark arts. While the melodic influences of the titular track remain ubiquitous in the B-side,  they take on a supporting role. At its core, “Sorcery” is driven by haunting bass arrangements, diving into the umbral aesthetics that pervade the most intriguing cinematic scores.

Earlier today, March 8, Rinzen communicated the following to his fan-base, regarding the conceptual nature of Prologue:

“This is the story of my new EP. Ready? ‘Prologue’ is an ode to my love of literature. It’s about myths, poems, and fairytales. I wanted it to be a living scene, like a still frame from a movie. The EP is also a metaphor for my journey as an artist. This is my ‘prologue.’ This is my beginning.”

With his newest record, Rinzen has put forth a score that would find itself as at home in the club as at the cinema. If this is his prologue, his first chapter should prove to be a sound to behold.
