Forget mainstream for a minute. Because trust us, there’s plenty at Euphoria this year. But feel good music stems from the little guys too, though with talent this obvious, they won’t stay little for long.

Join us this year at Euphoria and check out each of the top 10 on-the-rise artists performing April 6-9, at Carson Creek Ranch:

SIP SIP

SIP SIP formed in summer 2009 when individuals from Austin bands Mother Falcon, Corduroi, and PowerNap teamed up to perform as, ‘The Summertime Band’. SIP SIP has now accumulated 18 musicians from a diverse range of sound and lyrical backgrounds. Together they create a blend of electronic-groove, jazz horns, rock, group vocals and crowd participation, culminating in intense performances that regularly shake the foundations of the venues they frequent and steal the hearts of first time listeners around the country.

Blunt Force

Blunt Force is the musical vision of Austin, Texas locals Brian Gustafson & Deniz Baykal. Mixing elements of funk, hip-hop, dubstep, and livetronica, Blunt Force has quickly gained notoriety as a Live Electronic Duo. Their sets vary in both style and tempo, leaving no genre untouched and making them a total top act throughout the scene.

Flamingosis

Flamingosis is a New Jersey-based electronic music producer, beatboxer and DJ. By creating engaging and soulful tracks and by putting on an energetic live show, Aaron Velasquez emerged on the electronic scene with back to back bangers.

Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise are long time pals who are inspired by California, mezcal, dancing, good food, and friends.

ASADI

ASADI, a 20 year old producer from Columbus, Ohio, now local to Orlando FL., is dedicated to introducing a style of music he developed called “Persian Trap Music”. If that doesn’t make you eager enough to have ASADI a listen at Euphoria, I’m not sure anything will.

Lost Kings

After meeting at a party, Lost Kings, Robert Gainley and Dr. No, knew they had stumbled upon their musical counterpart. While their singles are just as hot, it’s their remixes that gained these creative partners national recognition and celebrity status. Everybody from Imagine Dragons, Krewella, and Halsey to Vance Joy, Echosmith, and Rihanna tapped Lost Kings for official remixes.

Chet Porter

His charming and unique style, ranging from sparkling indie-pop gems to experimental sample-driven tracks, evokes warm feelings of youth and innocence. Over the last year, Chet Porter has traveled and performed his quirky live set alongside peers such as ODESZA, Jai Wolf, Lemaitre, Big Wild and more. While he prepares to drop his next album, EP, he’s attempting to broaden his audience and escape the typical confinements of electronic music.
