MEW - VISUALS North America 2017 Tour wsg Monakr

Mew frontman Jonas Bjerre has worked on the projections for the band’s live shows since their early days. Usually, the Danish trio finish an album and Bjerre gets to work on the visuals. For their seventh record, though, the singer decided to turn things upside down, picturing visuals in his mind first and seeing how they could inform the music. The resultant record feels like a culmination for one of rock’s most ambitious and inventive groups: Visuals is where Bjerre and his bandmates, bassist Johan Wohlert and drummer Silas UtkeGraaeJørgensen, join the dots of a career that has spanned over two decades.

AEG Presents: MadeinTYO w/ K Swisha

Madeintyo does not have your typical rapper backstory - the son of a Naval Officer, he moved around frequently until his family landed in Tokyo for his high school years. Influenced by the foreign culture around him and inspired by his brother 24hrs (a successful artist in his own right) Madeintyo began to take music seriously. He uploaded a song to his brother's SoundCloud page and a movement was born – named The Private Club. His bass-heavy production influenced a new genre of rap music with a playful approach to lyrics. He was the first artist in his lane to break at radio, opening the doors for many new artists. WSG: K Swisha

React Presents: Whethan

17-year old Chicago native Ethan Snoreck, better known by his stage name Whethan, has wasted no time in releasing some of this year's most upbeat electronic tracks. His Soundcloud is already adorned with millions of views, specializing in rhythmically driven remixes of the likes of TyUs, Louis the Child, and Zayn. Whethan's stage name came from a school nickname that his friends made up. Later at the age of 16, he would end up becoming the youngest producer ever to release a record on Australia's leading electronic label, Future Classic. Now Whethan finds himself getting booked on festivals such as Snowglobe, UpNorth, and HARD Summer while in his senior year of high school. Expect to see great things in Whethan's future, as his highly anticipated original releases will include features from the likes of Skrillex and Flux Pavilion. His debut original entitled "Can't Hide" has reached an impressive 3 million Spotify streams, and you can expect to see plenty of more exciting tracks coming up in 2017.
