We’re headed up to Chicago this week to cover the 26th Lollapalooza and topping our list of must see artists is Ephwurd. The duo, made up of DJs Datsik and Bais Haus, is making their Lollapalooza debut this Saturday on Perry’s Stage.
The pair decided to collaborate while on tour with Steve Aoki in order to explore styles of EDM that pushed them out of their comfort zone. In 2015, Ephwurd gained traction in the scene with their remix of the song of the summer: Major Lazer’s smash hit “Lean On”. With this release, it was not announced who the men behind the pseudonym were and the scene was puzzled as they bobbed their heads to the bass until the duo revealed their identities prior to the release of their collaboration with Jauz, “Rock The Party”. If you’ve ever attended a festival and seen an EDM DJ preform, or more likely attended the 2016 Indianapolis 500 Snake Pit, you’ve probably heard the likes of Skrillex and Hardwell remix this tune. With remixes from The Chainsmokers and Kill the Noise and festival performances at Insomniac’s premier events, it’s clear that the only way for Ephwrud to go is up.
Most recently, Ephwurd collaborated with GRiZ for a remix of “Good Times Roll” and played made their EDC Vegas debut in June.
If you’re a fan of bass, there’s only one place to be Friday at 5 and that’s Perry’s stage to check out Ephwurd.
