Are You Aware of These Incredibly Talented Texans?
It is no surprise that Texas loves Electronic Dance Music. The amount of shows, concerts, and raves that come through the state of Texas leaves many opportunities to find incredible local talent. Over the years, between Austin, Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and many other cities across the state - dance music has skyrocketed in popularity - especially dubstep.
10+ years ago it was hard to find a rave in Texas. Today there are hundreds every month. Not only has Texas shown their love for EDM, cities like Dallas slowly drifted towards dubstep. Bass music is now huge in Dallas, with many national acts (like Sullivan King) claiming Dallas is even the “new bass capital of the USA…”
With lots of opportunities for more and more people to experience rave culture, many fell in love with the music. As the DJ became the new rockstar over the past decade, it isn't hard to find a kid with a controller/deck with Ableton, FL, or Logic loaded to their hard drives.
From this, a new age of musicians has come to light. And WOW - there is a lot of talent residing in Texas at the moment. Many over the years have moved to places like Colorado, New York, Atlanta, and California - leaving Dallas once their brand and following starts to form. This, in our opinion, is the reason why hip-hop or trap music is so big in Atlanta or EDM in LA. These cities bread and curate talent.
Over the years though, Texas has been putting in work and the world is starting to see... In alphabetical order, below are just a few of the incredibly talented producers currently living in Texas. Go check them out to see what Texas has been up to!
