The Next Wave of Philly’s Dance Music Scene

philly night li The Next Wave of Phillys Dance Music Scene

In the vast world that is dance music in America, most people overlook the contributions that Philadelphia has made. Even after guys like Diplo and Dieselboy honed their sound within the City of Brotherly Love, outside of the Philly area, people don't really represent the scene like they should, for whatever reason. With 2014 right around the corner, we're seeing a number of acts from Philadelphia bubbling underneath, and we wanted to make sure you guys understood that the Philly scene has some strong producers and DJs who, given the opportunity to, will explode all over the EDM scene. Check out the leaders of the next wave of Philly's dance music scene.

    Petty issues should not cloud an attempt to bring shine to some of the bright young stars of the Philly scene. You know who you are and you know who you excused for illegitimate reasons, make it right.

    would of liked to see the kid xaphoon jones get some love, he’s been putting on for philly for a long time, he’s got some groovy stuff. Seems unable to catch the eyes of complex, or anybody for that matter.

    This list besides 1,2,3, and 4 are completely wrong. Niglio, Swizzymack, G-Buck and Louis Futon are extremely dope DJs/Producers. Architekt sucks. BHB isn’t from Philadelphia and John Bean without Dr. Ew? Come on..

      You’d call someone like Starkey the “next wave” of Philly’s dance music scene? Starkey’s been around for a while, and someone we consistently rock with. But to call him a leader of the “next wave” would discount all of the progress he’s had over the years.
