This week’s artists have been carefully selected, having undergone a thorough critique process of their work. Originality, diversity and structure are just a few of the factors calculated into the decision of determining what tunes resonate best with the listener. Our team here at EDMTunes pride ourselves on discovering new and undiscovered talent every week. We are constantly looking for the underground gems of electronic dance music and want to support those who truly deserve the recognition. We advise our producers to continue to submit their tunes to possibly be featured on this segment of our weekly #RisingTalent series.
Bailey Merrill, or Aylius, is a 19-year-old producer who first dived into EDM production only a few years ago. After releasing his first EP, several originals and remixes started to flow out and onto his Soundcloud page. Having been featured on numerous music blogs, he is no stranger to those deeply involved in the music scene; but for those who are unfamiliar with his work, you are in for quite a treat. This electro-coated dubstep track showcases an impressive fusion of the two styles in a seamless fashion.

4) Thomas Crowne
Thomas Crowne made his transition from hip-hop to EDM in 2011, and is inspired by all genres of music including jazz, classical and rock. An admirable quality about this producer is that he is completely self-taught. Electro house and nu disco are now the primary focuses of his brand. This hard-hitting electro tune highlights a variety of complextro elements that are reminiscent of Zedd’s signature sound.
FLAWVO was introduced to classical music as a toddler and began playing piano by age 6 and guitar by age 12. His taste in music has then evolved to rock to metal to hip-hop and finally electronic music, thanks to Daft Punk’s “Homework.” His inspirations range from Kill The Noise to Djemba Djemba to Nine Inch Nails, whom was a catalyst into his realization that one could create digital symphonies using computer software. Using Ableton, FLAWVO has produced a future bass tune that incorporates impeccable vocal splicing and pitch-bending.
6) Rave Radio
Australian duo Rave Radio began in 2010 and has had an incredibly rewarding journey thus far. Having received support from headliners such as Nicky Romero, John Dahlback and Paul Oakenfold, their tunes have received quite a buzz. Moreover, they have had the opportunity to produce official remixes for Akon, Lil Wayne and Pitbull to name a few. Let’s not forget that they have toured around Australia and New Zealand, as well as been booked at venues located in New York, Dubai and more. This dutch-influenced banger will kill at any club.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Sean Vonzie represents a new breed of electronic music producers who are not bound by genre. In previous works of his, he has incorporated a variety of influences from zouk to future bass to trap. Vonzie is determined to breakout in 2014 with his diverse style. This should be no problem, given his talent and excellent work ethic. This sexy tune of his features a tight twerk drop that effortlessly evolves into a tropical melodic groove.
Hailing from Istanbul, Turkey, Bamboora is a DJ and producer who currently resides in the beautiful city of Boston. He has already had the privilege to play alongside some of the biggest names in the industry including Skrillex, Calvin Harris and Erick Morillo. This powerful and rhythmic track provides a bass-pounding drop that will immediately get the crowd on their feet and jumping.
9) Kevin Charm
Australian producer Kevin Charm has been producing for approximately three years now. Starting out as a guitarist for his high school pop-punk band, it was tracks like Oceanlab’s “Satellite” and Ferry Corsten’s “Punk” that hooked him on electronic music ever since. This uplifting catchy tune captures the angelic vocals of Zizi and contains a summery progressive drop.
