The London-born, Phoenix-raised artist’s career has truly “blossomed,” and she’s not done yet. Blossom’s massive sound has earned her support from AC Slater, Habstrakt, Steve Aoki, and many other big names in the dance music scene. Records such as ‘Still Here,’ ‘Complicated,’ and ‘Far Away’ see the DJ/producer craft a fierce bass house atmosphere that has caught the attention of high-profile record labels such as Thrive Music, Night Bass, and Bite This! After selling out her first headline show at Academy LA earlier this year, the pink-haired producer is now set to tear up the HARD stage.
The Australian DJ/producer has become known for his ability to emphasize the unconventional in his genre-defying productions. He broke through the scene in 2014 with ‘Is It A Banger,’ which has gained millions of streams and has set the tone for what to expect from the artist in the following years. Mirroring the success of his breakthrough track, his 2022 single ‘LEFT TO RIGHT’ has brought the Brisbane-based artist back to the spotlight, gaining massive support from industry heavyweights John Summit, Dom Dolla, Diplo, Chris Lake, and many more. From performing at EDC Las Vegas to taking the stage at Coachella earlier this year, Odd Mob’s eyes are all set on the HARD Stage.
The Long Beach native trap producer has been making waves in the electronic music scene with his unique blend of ethereal melodies, pulsating beats and hauntingly atmospheric sounds. Tracks such as ‘Echo,’ ‘Reform’ and ‘Angels Landing’ with ISOxo see the DJ/producer craft a sonic landscape that transcends traditional boundaries, earning him support from major bass music labels such as Gud Vibrations and NIGHTMODE. Drawing inspiration from a diverse range of genres, this enigmatic artist weaves together elements of ambient, future bass, and glitch, creating a spellbinding fusion that transports listeners to otherworldly realms.
