Known to arrange every genre under the sun within their annual lineups, Coachella might just be America’s biggest and most anticipated festival. Representing the EDM world in terms of headliners this year, we have none other than sir Calvin Harris following support from acts like Major Lazer, Louis The Child, DJ Mustard and Snails; Adding to that list for anyone attending Sunday’s show however is the up-and -destroying KSHMR. Announced on Facebook earlier today, he went upon saying, “My new EP is titled The Lion Across the Field, based on a children’s book I wrote some years ago. This weekend at Coachella I will be taking the crowd on a journey into this new world through animation and an original score I composed. Hope to see you all there.”… which in my opinion might just be the coolest prologue to a set, maybe ever.
Gaining momentum over the past year with a sound as intuitive as his vision, KSHMR continues to surprise his followers as he escapes any sign of comfort and dives full force towards a future of innovation and groundbreaking electro-gold. As shown in his new EP “The Lion Across the Field“, he isn’t afraid to get dirty and more importantly create a literal story within his music. Exciting, elevating, and enormous are the three E’s which perfectly describe this EDM pioneer. Listen to a sneak peak of his the EP below and prepare yourself Coachella, you are in for a treat.
