Exciting New Artists…

2 Dec

MANSIONS ON THE MOON

I must admit, I have a hard time classifying this trios’ sound but have no trouble enjoying it. Their debut mixtape, presented by Diplo and DJ Benzi features collaborations with Washed Out, Chiddy Bang’s Xaphoon Jones, Deadmau5, and Big Gigantic. Hopefully that roster helps explain why it is so difficult, even for the Echo-park trio themselves, to describe their music. As a result of this the band has gained fans from all over the music spectrum. Their mixtape, Paradise Falls, can be enjoyed by hip-hop fans of artists like KiD CuDi and N.E.R.D. (who they are co-signed by) to the experimental and pop lovers of bands like Toro Y Moi, Empire of the Sun and MGMT.

Do yourself a favor and check their mixtape out. My favorite is “Glimpse Into the Future” which features Xaphoon Jones.
