With SXSW just a few days away, we thought we’d bring to your attention a noteworthy industry panel that discusses a topic most electronic music fans would be curious to learn about: ‘How to Develop an Electronic Artist: Matoma‘. Over the past couple years, Matoma’s online and live presence has skyrocketed. The tropical house artist has garnered hundreds of millions of plays on Spotify and is one of the most streamed artists in the world. He recently sold out Terminal 5 in New York with support from Two Friends and Aston Shuffle.

On this SXSW panel are Billboard’s Senior Dance Editor Matt Medved, Matoma’s agent Ferry Rais-Shaghaghi from APA, Tom (Matoma) himself and more. The panel will be taking place on March 16 from 5pm to 6pm. Moreover, Matoma has recently announced a “Matoma & Friends” official SXSW showcase at Kingdom on March 17 that will go on from 9pm to 2am. This is not something you’ll want to miss!

EDX

Facebook | Twitter | SoundCloud

In today’s vastly changing world of dance music, there are only a few artists that have withstood the test of time and still carry on the same sonic impact they’ve been establishing for decades. Swiss DJ and producer EDX has not only developed a full scope of the evolving world of music for the past 20 years, but his sunrise-styled anthems have ignited crowds across the world with the same fury in every performance.

2016 has been a momentous year for the house music luminary as he pushed newer and broader boundaries. He kicked off the year as the #1 top charting artist on Beatport and juggled a 10-week residency at Privilege Ibiza while also performing on his worldwide summer tour. As for the music side of things, EDX once again reminded us all why he reigns supreme in the house music genre, releasing everything from his ‘Touch Her, Feel Her’ EP to his chart-topping releases, “My Friend” and “Roadkill.”
