As if the Phase One announcement wasn’t enough, yesterday we were treated to the Phase Two additions for Electric Zoo 2012. I may not have a TON of festivals under my belt, but I think Zoo is one of the best and something I’ve now come to look forward to as a summer wrap-up three years in a row. There are lots of festivals to hit this summer, but keep this one on your list and try not to shoot your load too quickly. Here are the additions listed yesterday:
Bart B More
Kyau & Albert
Norin & Rad
Sleepy & Boo
Some standouts to me:
1.) Angger Dimas – Indonesian 23 year old who produces unique House/Electro-House and has collaborated with Tiesto and the Bassjackers. Never seen him live
2.) DallasK – another youngster, this time from Florida. Produces heavy-hitting Electro-House and I really want this kid to blow up. Never seen him live
3.) Diplo – anytime he’s on the bill you know it’s going to be a party. From House to Hip-Hop to Dubstep and Moombahton, I never miss this guy’s set if I can help it, especially since it’s never the same show to show.
4.) Norin & Rad – up-and-coming Trance/Progressive producers from California. Gaining heavy support from people like Above & Beyond and blurring the lines between Electro and Trance. Check out their song “Pistol Whip”
5.) Treasure Fingers – Never seen him before, Disco-House. Enough said.
