When people ask me who my favourite artists are, I usually answer, “I don’t know. There’s too many”. Besides, it’s a complicated question. Real talk, tho, if I look through my play lists, there are certain artists who come up again and again. Here’s 5 selections by Dead Kids who’s tunes repeatedly find their way into my sets.
ACTUAL PHANTOM – SLENG TENG THANG
ACTUAL PHANTOM is an unsung hero of bootleg BREAKS. His productions are simple, but feature recognizable, dancefloor favourites combined with funky percussion, and dirty basslines. And he releases plenty of MARIJUANA MUSIC. Always solid!

ZEDD – SPECTRUM (COMIC STRIPS)
COMIC STRIPS is a recent obsession for me. He makes such a wonderfully diverse variety of EDM sounds. His ZEDD REMIX is a great example of his more POP friendly approach.[soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/60437751″ iframe=”true” /]
DEV79 – IN GRAIN WE TRUST
Not only are his own productions top notch, but DEV79 is also one of the masterminds behind labels, SECLUSIASIS, and SLIT JOCKEY, which both repeatedly pump out the hottest progressive BASS music on the planet. Here’s one of his signature STREET BASS tunes, going out to all GANJA smokers pon de place.

MELODY JOY – REVENGE
A fan favourite, for sure, from my homegirl, MELODY JOY. You NEED to check out the MUSIC VIDEO for this one. What a hot gore fest! What a dope tune!!

TOPSIDER has a unique flare for injecting the unfamiliar with familiarity, allowing him to expose the most experimental of EDM to mainstream dancefloors, and making him the edgiest MASHUP artist ever! Ladies, get ready to make dat ass clap![soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/83721593″ iframe=”true” /]
Sooo maybe not my favourites, but definitely some of the most played. I told you, it’s complicated!
