Deorro

Deorro makes his 2018 debut with another energy-filled track,  “Existence.” Released on Ultra Music, the American producer looks to pick up where he left off in 2017 with his debut album Good Evening and an expansive North American tour.

One thing the Deorro specializes in is giving his fans what they want. In the case of “Existence,” he stuck to his usual big room sound, employing heavy, reverb-filled kicks, vibrating synths, vocal chants, and an orchestral bridge for added drama. In addition to a Coachella 2018 appearance, Deorro will be taking Latin America by storm this spring, including performances at EDC Mexico, Lollapalooza Brazil, and more.

After hit release “Raindrops,” Kevin Andrew Chapman’s career took off thanks to his house hits and dynamic live performances. The LA-based producer, who is more commonly known as SNBRN, has releases that span from deep to tropical house, giving fans from a variety of genres something to like.

Dancing Astronaut spoke to Chapman about everything from his favorite book to what he has in store for 2018, and his responses prove that the producer is more than meets the eye. When he is not creating music, SNBRN is an avid reader and family guy, noting how much he loves playing in San Francisco because family is able to come to his shows.

The enigmatic producer has performed all over the world — including fulfilling his teenage dream of playing at Coachella. He is performing on the sold out Groove Cruise this year alongside the likes of Markus Schulz, Dada Life, Thomas Jack. With a new EP on the way, and upcoming tour dates with 3LAU, the house connoisseur is setting the stage for a big year ahead.

READ THE FULL INTERVIEW BELOW:
You recently tweeted “Reading books is sexy!” What is your favorite book?

Now that’s a tough one! My favorite book to gift that I’ve read a million times is Steal Like an Artist: 10 Things Nobody Told You About Being Creative‎, and my current favorite book is The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck.

 

You became interested in music and music production at a very young age. Who and/or what genres of music were some of your inspirations for this interest? 

My inspiration as a kid came from rock music- Queen, Led Zeppelin & Sublime. As I got more into electronic music, Fatboy slim and Moby pretty much became my idols.

 

Do you have a favorite city and/or venue to play at? 

I would have to say San Francisco. Always an amazing vibe, and my family comes to every show. 

 

What has been the most exciting moment for you in your career so far?

Playing Coachella last year takes the cake! That has been a huge dream of mine since I was 16 years old.

 

What do you have in store for us in 2018?

I have passion project EP of tech house coming out early this year that I am really excited about. I’m also exploring new sounds and tempos for some bigger vocal singles coming out later in the year.

This Coachella lineup of AI generated artist names is outrageous

Each year, a plethora of fake Coachella lineups circulate the internet. Reddit users and trolls of the deep web come together in an effort to dupe the masses, get a good laugh, or ultimately just embody a looming existential crisis vis-à-vis the curatorial form.

The latest pseudo-Coachella lineup poster, generated by AI community Botnik Studios, has to be one of the most unique lineups we’ve seen yet.

The online collective unveiled their very own Coachella 2018 poster comprised of entirely made-up monikers generated by a “neural network,” trained to analyze the names of existing musical acts, and the final result is pretty outrageous.

Botnik’s boasts headliners like Fanch, One of Pig, and Lil Hack, as well as what we think would be solid EDM mainstays like Fistopia, Maja, Thou Bald Lungo, Man Mist, Slup, Jonathan Is High, and Skin Clump. While these artists are in reality 100 percent fictional, we can imagine an alternate universe where some of the utterly outrageous acts could rule the world, and that’s pretty sick.
