The Radar celebrates its 100th episode with none other than Whethan, whose mix is his set from the legendary Red Rock Ampitheatre. The Chicago based producer ascended into the electronic music scene at the age of 17 thanks to his remix of “XE3” by Mssingno, which has garnered over 9 million plays on SoundCloud to date. Whethan may not be of legal drinking age, but that isn’t stopping him from headlining some of the top venues in the U.S. and collaborating with the likes of Charli XCX and Flux Pavillion.
His upbeat Radar mix showcases his ability to seamlessly blend mainstream pop and rap music into surprising electronic drops that blend perfectly to create a cohesive and dynamic set. From riding in the car to pre-gaming on Saturday night, Whethan’s mix is the perfect backdrop for multi-genre loving listeners.

As a staple of the future bass scene, Whethan releases are consistent, and treasured by his fanbase. Responsible for indie-tinged, sun-kissed hits like “Savage” and “Good Nights,” Whethan has dropped a snippet of a work titled “Tour Beat One” — a collaboration with Bearson — sharing this in the Soundcloud description:
Whethan is currently deep into the Good Nights Tour, which will hit well over a dozen cities — upcoming stops include Orlando, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. Whethan rose fast during the peak of future bass and now he’s expanded his into a wide variety of chill beats. The short and sweet “Tour Beat One” is an extension of a blossoming Whethan sound.
LA-based producer Whethan is one of the hottest names in dance music right now and has released another jaw-dropping release “Enemy,” featuring singer/producer Oliver Tree. Premiered on Zane Lowe‘s Beats 1 Radio, the track is the artists’ second collaboration to date, following “When I’m Down.”
The track kicks off with a series of energetic piano chords and breaks down into guitar riffs that fit perfectly under Tree’s passionate vocals. The two LA residents add in some crunchy, looped synths on the first climax and high-pitched lead synths on the second that make for a feel-good, chill, indie pop/dance track.
From handling their own art, mixing, mastering and promotion, to starting their own label/collective Magic Magic in 2015, Bronze Whale has shown the world what can be accomplished with determination, endless drive and talent.
On their latest effort, the in-demand production duo reworks Whethan and Oliver Tree’s “When I’m Down” into an epic remix. Showing a keen understanding of when to let the original vocals breathe and when to use more ambitious production techniques, Bronze Whale creates a bouncy, unforgettable remix that’s the perfect addition to a house party playlist or club set.
Candyland X Filip have remixed one of the most successful up and comers in future bass. Whethan dropped an original with the legendary Charli XCX not too long ago.
Whethan has impacted the scene with dozens of singles that have gone on to get millions of plays. With his sound and tastes developing, this Charli XCX collaboration was not only a brave choice but also shows a more experimental side of the artist. Candyland X Filip’s inclusion of sustained future bass synths and clean percussion gives this remix the edge it needed.
Taking a quick ramp to success with the easy likability of his last few singles such as “Can’t Hide” and “Savage”, Whethan has grown from a bedroom-producer to a staple act on festival stages. After successfully gaining the attention of fans across the globe and going on to collaborate with bass extraordinaire Flux Pavilion, the Chicago-native has firmly established his obvious talent.
Managing to fluctuate between sub-genres to express his creative work, Whethan has worked effortlessly within the future-bass sphere to create his own trademark sound. With a pattern of producing future-bass singles that are characterized by rich vocals and layered tempos, Whethan breaks this chain by releasing his latest, an indie-pop hit dubbed “Good Nights”.
Not one to leave fans waiting, the announcement of his “Good Nights” tour was also revealed alongside the the single. Embarking on a round-the-clock tour across North America, Whethan’s schedule remains jam-packed from summer festival gigs, to back-to-back shows in a variety of cities.
