Coachella Artist Spotlight ’14 | Deorro

It is sooooo close you almost feel the warm Indigo sun on your face. We are only 13 sleeps away from Coachella and the anticipation is building every day. The spring festival season kicked off this week with Miami Music Week and Ultra this weekend on the East Coast, but Coachella will usher in the start of festival season out west.

We have spotlighted artists across the dance music spectrum like Aeroplane, RL Grime and Duke Dumont, but now we get gritty and bouncy somewhat local kid Deorro. Hailing from Los Angeles, Deorro has become one of the biggest revelations in dance music over the past 12 months. His bouncy, electro sound that fuses elements of electro house, dutch and Melbourne bounce has been a refreshing change of pace and helped bring Melbourne bounce off of the Australia shores. He got his start ghost producing for a bunch of guys around dance music, but soon decided it was time to take credit for his work and strike out on his own.

He has had incredible success in the past few months with currently 5, yes 5 songs sitting in the top 50 overall songs on Beatport. Yes you should take every song in the Beatport charts with a grain of salt because it is a pretty well-known fact now that you can buy position and it is tacitly encouraged by Beatport, notably since their acquisition by SFX. However that level of success is something you cannot argue with and Deorro is someone who does it right and gives out a lot of his originals for free before having labels release them. In a festival with such wide variety as Coachella, make sure you head out to see Deorro and the damage he is about to wreak on whatever stage they decide to put him on.
