Over the following month, Electric Sloth will be bringing you a series of articles that will bring to light some of the up and coming DJs and Producers in our scene. Each week we will highlight one genre and the top three rising stars within each. The artists that we focus on are those that have not reached widespread popularity, but we feel are on the cusp of making it big.

This week’s focus: Electro House.

Autoerotique

Hailing from Toronto and currently residing on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak record label, Autoerotique has been making waves with their own brand of electro beats. Fronted by  Keith Robertson & David “Dave” Henderson, Autoerotique has been rising steadily in the scene since their debut in 2008. They have released a variety of chart-topping songs including “Turn Up the Volume”, “Roll the Drums” and most recently, “Asphyxiation”. They have also provided a number of unique remixes of tunes covering a wide spectrum on music, from Diplo to Tiesto, to even bands like the Disco Biscuits and Weezer. We feel that over the next few years, Autoerotique will be riding the wave to stardom. They have the privilege of playing huge shows such as Electric Zoo and Tomorrowworld, and while they may not be at the peak of wide-spread acclaim, they are well on their way to getting there. It won’t be long until their intense and crowd-amping electro tinged tracks make their way onto the mixing boards of every DJ out there.

Adrian Lux

Swedish DJ and Producer, Adrian Lux, has been on the rise for quite some time now. Intent on crafting catchy and original standalone tracks, Lux has proven that with each track he creates, he only gets better. Lux‘s official releases are 2008’s Strawberry EP and 2012’s Self-titled twelve track album which has received much attention. Lux has also played at a variety of different festivals such as Electric Daisy Carnival and other large venues. If you like catchy tracks with an angsty feel to them, Lux has it covered. From tunes like “Teenage Crime” featuring the mellow and moody voice of Lune, to the track “Burning” featuring Dante, Lux provides a unique spin on the electro house genre that will appeal to anyone who has ever secretly wanted to dance away their problems. Adrian Lux is another producer and DJ that is on his way to making it big in the scene.

Savant

 While Savant would never label himself under one genre, most of his 117 official tracks fall under the category of electro house. Add to this hundreds upon hundreds of rumored unreleased tracks and Savant has almost one thousand songs under his belt. This is just one of the many reasons we feel he is going to break it big. Coming from Norway, Savant has only been producing under the title for a few years. However, the amount of time and effort that goes into his craft, and the amount of material he has to show for it is astounding. Take a listen to a few of Savant‘s tracks and you will recognize that no two are similar. Utilizing a far-ranging batch of sounds and 8-bit beats, Savant is one of the more original producers out there. While he focuses his time on producing far more than mixing, he has also been known to give a wild show. We anticipate that because of the talent and skill level riding behind the moniker, Savant will be a force to be reckoned with in the next few years. Keep your eye out for the day that mask makes its way onto the stage of some of the biggest shows out there.
