Messier Stage, Saturday – 12 August 2017
Producer, songwriter and DJ, DallasK has come a long way since buying Ibiza trance mixes when he was in fourth grade. “Once I started hearing the new wave of electronic music like MSTRKRFT and Justice, that’s when I decided this was what I wanted to do as a career,” says the Los Angeles-via-Orlando musician. He began his production career at the age of 14 and, a few years later, started booking DJ sets at various venues. To create his own style, DallasK combined his love of the ethereal electro-pop sound of bands like M83 with electro-house music. Blending these two genres, DallasK imbues each of his numerous remixes and productions with song structures more suited to pop than EDM. “I’m trying to bring songs back into dance music instead of quote-unquote bangers,” says DallasK.
He has received acclaim and attention for many of his EDM tracks, most notably his smash hit collaboration with Tiesto on “SHOW ME”. Additionally, his collaboration with KSHMR, “Burn”, accrued a combined total of over 10 million streams and his single with Adventure Club, “Crash 2.0”, placed in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Dance/Electronic charts. He shared the Ultra Main Stage with Tiesto in 2016 to debut their incredible new collaboration, “YOUR LOVE”, which was streamed live to millions. Most recently, DallasK’s writing and producing chops earned him the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 with Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home”, the group’s first #1 hit.
