Slowly but surely, artists in EDM have been teaming up to create super-group identities.
Steve Angello, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso = Swedish House Mafia
Skrillex, Boys Noize = Dog Blood
ATrak, Armand Van Helden = Duck Sauce
Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen = Knife Party
Skrillex, Diplo = Jack U (This is a new artist persona in the making. The duo is set to reveal their new identity during the Mad Decent Block Party Tour.)
Excision, Downlink, and KJ Sawka (former Pendulum drummer) = Destroid
Not many artists are known for having bass so heavy that ear cavities don’t suffice; bass so deep that it can best be described as a feeling that overtakes your entire body upon impact. After releasing their two singles ‘Raise Your Fist‘ and ‘Blast Off’ on their own independent label, the crew has released their first album titled The Invasion. The group has also picked San Francisco for their first live show at the end of the month. What will set Destroid apart from most modern day shows is their use of futuristic symbols and videos to convey underlying social media and marketing concepts. They also create online graphic novels to create a stir about future work.
Their tagline: Elevate Your Existence.
