Electric Forest ’15 Artist Spotlight | Wave Racer

Electric Forest Festival is now just a few weeks away, set to take over Rothbury, Michigan on June 25th-28th. Although the line-up is incredibly stacked, one of our most anticipated acts is 21 year old DJ/producer Tom Purcell, also known as Wave Racer. Hailing from Sydney, Wave Racer is one of many talented Australian producers that are making big splashes on the global stage. Sydney powerhouse Future Classic signed Wave Racer after he released his first two originals, Rock U Tonite and Stoopid. His label-mates include Touch Sensitive, Classixx, Flight Facilities, and most notably, Flume. In the Mix has even gone far enough to name Wave Racer “the next Flume”, which goes to show how incredibly talented the up and coming producer really is.

His signature sound is a blend of pixelated future-funk that is reminiscent of Mario Kart’s Rainbow Road. Wave Racer has taken on everything from mind-bending Jersey Club anthems to modern hip hop instrumentals, proving how versatile his production style is. He is one of the most played artists on popular Australian national broadcaster Triple J while also appearing frequently on BBC Radio 1. Check out his Diplo & Friends mix, full of trap and poppy synths that make up his signature sound. Don’t miss out on experiencing Wave Racer at one of the most unique festivals of the year, the Forest!
