Get To Know Them
Candyland, comprised of Josie Martin and Ethan Davis of beautiful Santa Barbara, began producing original music just last year. They quickly earned respect when they won two Beatport remix competitions in a row, one for Skrillex’s “Make it Burn” and “Rattle” by Bingo Players. The attention they have enjoyed since has been propelled by their debut album “Bring the Rain” and appearances at top clubs in California. Enjoy the music that made them big, and don’t miss the duo play alongside Seven Lions and Flinch at CONTROL this Friday at Avalon.
Inspired by electronic music since the age of 14 — back when many of us were happily satisfied by Nintendo and Capri-Sun — KhoMha has risen to become one of the biggest DJs the world has seen. Hailing from Colombia, he’s fast gained a reputation for driving crowds crazy with his beats and melodies, inspired by his house, trance, and progressive. This paired with his work with some of EDM’s biggest names has lent him the credibility to establish himself as a top producer and performer, playing at the best venues and festivals the world over. Catch KhoMha making a rare LA performance at Avalon this weekend alongside Markus Schulz and The M Machine Live. – Please note advance tickets for Saturday’s show have sold out, but there are still a limited amount available for Sunday’s show.
Whether you know Dave Nada and Matt Nordstrom as individual DJ powerhouses or as the dynamic duo that is Nadastrom, you will be hearing a lot more from them. The Moombathon movement was started by Dave Nada in 2009 when he slowed down Afrojack’s remix of Silvio Ecomo and Chuckie’s song “Moombah” from 128BPM to 108BPM. His subsequent blending of house and club music with reggaeton and bachata became the basis of Moombahton. As for the DJ name Nada instead of his birth name Villeagas? He credits his early punk band De Nada and how everyone referred to him as Dave from De Nada, and eventually Dave Nada.
