Hailing from Vancouver, Canada, trap producer Ekali will certainly not be far from home. Nathan has shaken up the trap scene so immensely that people often refer to his sets and shows as legendary. Every time he performs, Ekali brings immense energy and enthusiasm that excites the crowd into a frenzy. Ekali has also collaborated with many high profile artists such as Denzel Curry and TroyBoi. Each track has its own unique stylistic approach that highlights Nathan’s broad knowledge of the trap genre. Incorporating masterful synths and brass to flesh out his ever-changing drum patterns.  Listen to a couple of his tracks below, and judge for yourself.

Pendulum is one of the most legendary Drum and Bass groups of all time. By fusing rock-like vocals with their iconic hard hitting Drum and Bass, the group has seen massive success since their formation back in 2002. Many fans were dismayed back in 2012 that Pendulum was going on hiatus for the foreseeable future. The founders of the group, Swire and McGrillen later stated that they had lost their drive to make new music under the name Pendulum. Thankfully Ultra Music Festival seems to revive many artists, and Pendulum happened to be one in 2016. In 2017, they announced their official return, and have been playing live and DJ sets since!

Medasin
