Many artists will have a signature sound, and for this reason we associate these sounds directly with that artist.  When you hear that hard electric grungy slide you can almost guarantee Daft Punk. Or when that sweet electric piano glides into the ears you can feel the love sounds of Avicii.  Well here’s a couple of under the radar artists that  have created sounds sounding very much like some of the artists who have made it big.

Sounds Like Flux Pavilion: I’m listening to Dillon Francis

Beautician [audio]

Almost out of nowhere, Los Angeles’ Dillon Francis has broken from the throng of young electronic music dj/producers. With a stream of world-class remixes and releases, Dillon has caught the attention of some of the top players in club land, including Steve Aoki, Diplo, Will I. Am, Drop The Lime, Sinden, and Tittsworth to name some. In less than a year his blistering productions have been heavily supported by Major Lazer, who opened their show with “Westside!,” a Dutch House-flavored monster that was consistently rinsed by top djs on both sides of the pond, including Sinden and Steve Aoki.
