If versatility is the way to unlock success as a DJ-producer, Escobar has long had the key. As a legend of NYC’s music scene, Escobar has dished out everything from house, disco, and hip-hop to electro, funk, and techno since the ‘90s. His penchant for soulful vocals and expressive melodies atop a scorcher of an acid bassline always livens up the dance floor. Proof? Just listen to his variety of hits, such as “Seein You” and “City Song,” plus his sizzling EP Still Searchin,’ released at the top of this year. Whether he plays one of the world’s hottest clubs or steals your heart through your Beats Studio Buds, Escobar shines in his ability to seamlessly layer tracks and take the listener on a danceable journey from start to finish.
The Blessed Madonna
We’ve long been obsessed with The Blessed Madonna’s boisterous, brilliant performances over the years – and our appreciation is ever more cemented by her array of earworm-y originals and remixes. Just last year, The Blessed Madonna released the euphoric “Serotonin Moonbeams,” featuring the heavenly vocals of pop singer Uffie. In May, The Blessed Madonna dropped “F*ck what u heard” with garage legend Todd Edwards.
“I hate the soppy ‘dance music is my religion.’ I’m always like, ‘Oh my God, shut up!’ On the other hand, I can’t lie and say that pretty much everything good that ever happened to me didn’t come from being smushed up against the front of a speaker,” The Blessed Madonna said in an interview with Beatportal in 2022. We agree that many good things come from being in front of a speaker – especially at EZoo.
Kaskade (Sunset set)
This Chicago native and now L.A. resident is dance music royalty and an EZoo veteran. Whether you were introduced to Kaskade through his 2003 house-inflected album It’s You, It’s Me or the now-iconic collaborative record “Move for Me” with fellow DJ-producer deadmau5, one thing’s for certain: you were mind-blown. Even deadmau5 mentions that Kaskade “excels as a songwriter and in arrangement and structure.” Whether it’s the stirring sounds, organic instrumentals, or captivating vocals, Kaskade’s music captures the joys of life, the allure of love, and the embodiment of happiness. We couldn’t be happier to experience his heart-gripping music during Mother Nature’s marvelous moment, a gorgeous sunset.
Who doesn’t love a hint of old-school house music with a dash of what’s hot in techno? That’s where J. Worra comes in. This tech-house maven is known for bringing plenty of energy (and bass) to her live sets. It’s no wonder she won the title of DJ Mag’s 2019 Breakthrough Music Producer of the Year. As one of the scene’s most authentic artists, J. Worra brings a delightful blend of upbeat basslines and playful melodies to anything she produces – from zesty originals such as “Inside Out” to remixes (We especially love her remix of GRiZ and Wreckno’s “Medusa”).
J. Worra, who identifies as part of the LGBTQ community, believes the dance music industry can afford to become more inclusive by sharing and purchasing their music and show tickets. “The more we can lift each other up, the more we set ourselves up to kind of tackle this unbalanced industry,” J.Worra said in an interview with Forbes. With a big heart made of gold and her talented musical chops, J. Worra shows the world that she’s an impactful force on and off stage.
Coco & Breezy
The wildly talented DJ-producer duo Coco & Breezy bring double the pleasure and fun in everything! The modish twins were influenced by their family’s passion for music which helped them tap into dance music culture as teens. Their bops, such as “Off My Mind (featuring Sam White)” and “Liftin Me Up,” takes a nod at classic house jams while tapping into sultry R&B sensibilities. “We are all about good energy and bringing that vibe – it’s what we do. Our music reflects all of the influences in our lives, different from how we might be stereotyped. We love house music, R&B, and pop, and Afro-Latino grooves are a part of our DNA, C&B says on their website. This bubbly vibe is what we live for at EZoo!
Ready to work your body to the hypnotic basslines of this Brazilian star on-the-rise? Carola was the first female artist to release on Martin Garrix’s STMPD Records, thus making a name for herself outside of Brazil’s electronic music scene. This self-taught artist smoothly combines her house music stylings atop the heat of Spanish lyrics on “Luchadora,” whereas “Work My Body” builds into a classic house track with frenetic basslines. Carola has amassed over 20 million plays across multiple streaming services, and her buzzworthy tunes have been supported by some of electronic music’s biggest names, including Martin Garrix, SOFI TUKKER, David Guetta, Don Diablo, and Alok.
Spencer Huff b2b Matt Suave
We’re in for a real treat with this b2b set between L.A.-based DJ Spencer Huff and Matt Suave. Huff specializes in tech house, prog house, and nu-disco fusion, while Suave is mostly a self-proclaimed “househead.”
In 2020, Spencer made his performance debut at Utopia, an LGBTQ+ music festival in Mexico. Since then, he’s landed residencies at X Bar Denver, Chicago’s DS Tequila Company, and is the resident DJ of Jake Resnicow. As for classical opera singer turned DJ-producer Suave, he’s played alongside Derrick Carter, LP Giobbi, Gene Farris, SG Lewis, Le Youth, and other top-notch artists. His most recent project, PlayHaus, has become one of Denver’s most celebrated parties, and he plans to launch an LGBTQ-focused DJ podcast later this year.
We look forward to welcoming these house music mavericks to their first EZoo!
