4. De La Swing
Although the Spanish DJ is just beginning to gain traction among US listeners, De La Swing is pretty beloved on the international circuit. He’s a resident of the Barcelona-based nomadic Elrow parties, and will be kicking-off Elrow’s Sambodromo do Brazil takeover of the Sunday School Grove Saturday afternoon. De La Swing’s EZoo set will mark the US debut of the notoriously carnivalesque Elrow parties.
The Australian post-dubstep, wonky trap duo first blew up in the US when fellow Aussie Flume remixed their track “HyperParadise,” but they’ve been working together on their trip hop-inspired sound for over 15 years. Following the success of their 2015 full-length ‘Dark Night Sweet Light’ and their remix of ODESZA’s “Say My Name,” the pair finally saw a huge year of touring including stops at Bonnaroo, EDC, Electric Forest, Camp Bisco and Shambhala. In the past few months they’ve gained a reputation for super high-energy sets, so one can only get excited for what they’ll bring to the Hilltop Arena on Saturday.
SBCR, for those who don’t know, stands for Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo. Under this new-ish alias, the Italian producer and DJ behind Bloody Beetroots brings all those beloved dance punk-influenced electro-house productions to fuzzy new levels. He’s performing before 3LAU at Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak 20th Anniversary takeover of the Riverside Stage on Saturday, so let’s just leave it at this: if security were to allow us to bring in our own cake (they won’t), we’d start throwing it during SBCR’s set and not stop until the venue closes.
