Marshmello drops new single and performs LIVE drum battle in legendary Coachella set

Not content with his usual high-tempo mix of trap-induced bangers, masked producer Marshmello took things to another level with a Coachella set that will go down in dance music history for all the right reasons.

Closing the Sahara Tent set on the final evening of Coachella’s first weekend, the American DJ lit up the festival with his performance, bringing out the likes of Black Youngsta, A$AP Ferg, and Travis Barker as special guests. And even embarking in a LIVE drum battle with the latter.

Without warning, Marshmello called upon the Blink-182 drummer to take a seat at one of his stage’s all-white drum kits to the tune of the Mello-man’s leading anthem, “Alone”, which has already amassed over 100m YouTube views. Having blitzed through several zippy mixes to get the crowd bouncing, including “Keep It Mello”, and his remix of Jack Ü classic “Where Are Ü Now,” Marshmello decided to end the festivities with a debut of his brand new single, labelled “Anymore”, featuring vocals from Andrew Watt, co-writer of DJ Snake’s 2016 hit “Let Me Love You.”

Beginning with deep bass synths, the track soon explodes in typical Mello style, with an explosive drop that will get festival crowds jumping through the summer of 2017.
