The Electric Daisy Carnival is nearing its return to Orlando and we are gearing up for an eventful three day weekend. The three day gathering will be stacked with high quality production, performers and musical talent. Insomniac Events has hand picked this line up which has exceeded all of Florida’s key dance music areas. Plenty of house & techno, bass, and trance artists will be climbing into the brains of the festival goers this November. As always, EDC is a wonderful place to explore new music while getting lost under the electric sky and this year’s lineup needs to be explored deeply. Mic Drop Music is going to be taking an in-depth look at the talent leading up to the event with a few of our must see acts.
Born in Montreal, Quebec, the Canadian native spent most of the 1990s building the underground dance music scene in Montreal. Tiga has been movin’ dancefloors across the globe for quite sometime and he’s constructed a powerful reputation along the way. Tiga is the owner of Turbo Recordings which came to life in 1998 around the same time as his career. Working as a platform for his own music as well as other artists, Turbo Recordings has released music from some of the biggest names in house & techno scene. Some names to mention are Gesaffelstein, ANNA, Pilo, Audion, Carlo Lio, and many more. Tiga has a style like no other and is as cool as they come. Get a glimpse into what you can expect from Tiga, here.
Tiga will be playing back-to-back with the legend himself, DJ Tennis. Manfredi Romano was born and raised in Italy and was the manager of a few punk bands throughout the 1990s. He made the leap over to dance music shortly after the turn of the century and has steadily grown to his current stature since. Dj Tennis is a smooth operator on the decks and can create a sense of intimacy in any setting or crowd. He also owns a very well loved record label, Life and Death. When he’s not slicing beats at the function he’s slicing foods at his very own restaurant as a fine chef. He also rides motorbikes and has over 11,000 records in his collection, Dj Tennis is our man crush. Check out his set from Gottwood, here.
i_o has creeped his way into the scene over a short few years and is showing no signs of slowing down. He’s climbed his way up the techno ladder with multiple releases on mau5trap including a spectacular remix of the label boss’ Imaginary Friends. The L.A. based artist remixed one of my all time favorite tracks, Alchemy by Above & Beyond, and it is pure gold. i_o has created quite the name for himself and quite possibly was the first to have their name listed in lowercase letters on a EDC lineup. This is one artist that you should definitely be keeping tabs on as they are only gaining speed. With heavy hitting techno productions, smooth and crisp progressive releases like my personal favorite Audio Dust. There’s not much that i_o can’t do and we at Mic Drop Music are thrilled to see what he can do in the future and we are stoked for i_o’s set at EDC Orlando. Check out what went down at EDC Las Vegas, here.
Speaking of smooth and crisp progressive house, Julian Gray is another mau5trap artist that will be taking the stage at EDC Orlando. 2018 was a massive year for the LA based artist as he landed two seperate releases, including fan favorite “It is What It Isn’t”, on deadmau5′ label and showed the world his production capabilities. Throw electro, techno and progressive into a hat and that is the possible and highly likely mix of sounds that you will get from Julian Gray. An outstanding producer and a great Dj, you can expect to be floating as he lifts you with progressive goodness and keeps you flying high & mighty with some dark techno. Check out his interview and guest mix for Deep End Theory, here.
