Who You’ll See

Who You Can’t Miss

John O’Callaghan– JOC has been gaining popular recognition in the past couple of yeas. The Irish DJ and producer first appeared in DJ Mag’s notorious Top 100 in 2008, ranking in at number 60. His remixes of Gareth Emery’s ‘Concrete Angel’ and PVD’s ‘I Don’t Deserve You’ have quickly become trance favorites, the latter featured on PVD’s remix compilation (R)Evolution. JOC released his own Armada sublabel, Subculture, under which he release an annual compilation mix. His high intensity sets (Team 140bpm!!) and pure trance sound collectively create a noteworthy musical experience that anyone with an inklings towards trance will not want to miss!

Under the Radar Artist

Gramatik– This Slovenian native makes his Ezoo debut this year, bringing his smooth, feel good beats to Randall’s Island. Gramatik’s feel-good, smooth beats will be a great chill-out addition to the majorly electro house, big named focused Ezoo. Pretty Lights Music record label recognized the talent and potential in the rising star and immediately snatched him up as one of their own. His lush, soulful beats are guaranteed to have you grooving.

Who You Can Pass On

Baauer– We recommend passing on the ‘Harlem Shake’ to check out some of the other artist Ezoo has to showcase. In the last year, the trap star has not released many other noteworthy tracks, riding on the only recently subdued hype surrounding the viral ‘Harlem Shake’ phenomenon.
