No longer confined to small pockets of resistance, it’s safe to say that dance music has exploded across the United States. Following the success of this year’s Ultra Music Festival in Miami and Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas, DJ’s and electronic acts have become headliners for major festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza and SXSW. The genre has become a staple of FM and satellite radio stations and dance music’s leading figures have been hailed as the new stars of American youth culture by the likes of Rolling Stone, Forbes, CNN, The Atlantic and beyond.
With 3CDs covering Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York, Hed Kandi World Series: USA represents the hedonism of the American dance music scene and features an exclusive appearance from Treasure Fingers, the US DJ/producer lauded by Annie Mac, Jaymo & Andy George, Pete Tong, Dazed & Confused, Erick Morillo, Discobelle, Big Stereo and many more.
Treasure Finger’s new school disco, garage and house sound has seen him release on labels from Fools Gold (‘Cross The Dancefloor’, ‘Keep Up’ feat Haley Small) through to Defected (‘Lift Me’ EP). His remix discography includes Chromeo, Groove Armada, Innerpartysystem, Little Boots, Foster The People, Tensnake and many more. On the live front, Treasure Fingers has toured and played with Fake Blood, A-Trak, Chromeo, Laidback Luke, Fred Falke, Felix da Housecat and beyond.
Hed Kandi kicks off this 3CD release with the main room sounds from Las Vegas’ biggest nightclubs, lovingly mixed by Hed Kandi DJ Sarah Louise. Next up is Mikey Gallagher, delivering a blend of upfront and cutting edge electro anthems from Los Angeles’s infamous pool parties and dancefloors. Finally, to round off your journey through the USA’s currently unbeatable club scene is exclusive guest, Treasure Fingers, who puts his own spin on CD3, bringing you a perfect amalgamation of tough New York house beats.
The full spectrum of Kandi sounds is accompanied by a handy pull-out guide of Hed Kandi’s recommended places to visit, eat, sleep and party in New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
