Arguably the pop-sensation of the decade, singer by way of actress Ryn Weaver went music world viral in June 2014 with her single ‘OctaHate’. It was an emotionally charged affair that brought to mind Queen Bey and Ellie G. Follow-up EP Promises affirmed her as an artist to watch with its heartfelt lyricism and production backing from Benny Blanco, Cashmere Cat, and Michael Angelakos.

 

Making it onto the Coachella bill so early into her career is nothing but huge for her future. Join us on Saturday to see her enjoy her good fortune.

Gravez is making his way up the ranks of the underground as one of its more talented producers. From Soulection to Athletixx, the dude’s got connections in all the right places. Sango has been playing out this tune in all his sets, and for good reason. Only Gravez could pull a Pitbull sample and sound this fly.

It’s been nearly a year since the release of Tourist’s emotionally stirring Patterns EP. Born around the London
UK garage electronica movement, his music carries pop patterns akin to Disclosure and Sam Smith but with far more Balearic swells. When we caught him at LIB he impressed us with his passionately poetic progressions. It was a liberating experience, to say the least.

 

Join us as Tourist’s signature slow builds wash over us early Saturday. We expect a few vocal guests.

Since 2009, Berlin-based duo Tale of Us has been creating top-shelf minimal techno that Germany is so well known for. They had an absolutely killer essential mix appearance at the beginning of the year. Similar to “deep house” last year, this year in electronic music is looking to be the rise of the “underground” and Tale of Us is definitely in the lead pack.

 

We caught them at APEX LA last year, and we can firmly say they’ll be taking us to another world in the Yuma tent come Saturday. Find us under the shark coated in purple hues.

We still remember the occasion that was Tensnake’s debut of Glow a year ago. Album single ‘No Relief’ made it into almost every playlist and mix we listened to or curated. The album in general was great for after-hours maxing. Much of his production is, for that matter, well suited for beach-breezy post-parties.

 

Listening to his growth since tropical disco’s champion ‘Coma Cat’ came out over 5 years ago has been quite the adventure; seeing him at the City Steps stage will bring it all back around for us.

Retro-funky doesn’t even begin to describe Saint Motel. Their 2012 debut Voyeur and its exuberance was received extremely well by listeners in the indie-pop scene. More recent EP My Type has been earning them more clout as a hip 80’s pop-rock outfit. With a live set that is bound to keep you shimmying. Then there’s jazzy piano, horns, and sax thrown in for good measure, Saint Motel have got a certain zest about them that would be foolish to kick off Sunday without.
