Ekali is a Canadian instrumentalist and producer from Vancouver, BC. He started making electronic music in 2014, and since has been making big waves in the electronic community; from his visceral, captivating original work and collaborations to his thundering club remixes.
Ekali has received over twenty million streams, toured every corner of the world & received a writing credit on Drake’s “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late.” His unique sound has earned him a loyal following worldwide, and cemented him as one of electronic music’s most promising artists.
In 2016, Ekali was tapped for an official remix of Flume’s “Smoke & Retribution feat. Vince Staples & Ku ka” and his Flux Pavilion “I Can’t Stop” remix was officially signed and released by Big Beat. Ekali was also recently featured as a new & developing artist in HITS magazine. Over the summer of 2016, Ekali released a much anticipated official collaborative remix with Gravez of Jack Ü’s “Mind (feat. Kai).” This was quickly followed up by an official remix on Australian label Future Classic for Ta-ku & Wafia’s “Meet in the Middle” single.
Ekali’s 2016 headline fall was a huge success, selling out most shows throughout North America.
In 2017, Ekali has hit the festival circuit with performances at Electric Forest, Hard Summer, Shambhala, Buku, Forecastle, and Life is Beautiful, to name a few. Additionally, Ekali released a viral remix of “Don’t Leave” by Snakehips, an original collaboration record with KRANE, debuted his season mix series called “Awakening,” and was featured as a Diplo & Friends guest mixer on BBC Radio 1.
k?d is an electronic production wizard that might be dubbed as one of the fast growing electronic talent around. He took the world by storm last year with remixes of Steve James and Daft Punk, with each of them topping over a million plays. Once the world took notice of his abilities, Patrick Cybulski continued his onslaught on the electronic scene with very successful remixes of Justice, Porter Robinson, Manila Killa as well as others. The young producer also released a few outstanding originals such as “Discover,” “Birth of the Universe,” and “Somewhere Far From Here” that further demonstrated his innovative style and why fans flock to him. He has now begun his transition from SoundCloud into the live arena and has continued to push boundaries by incorporating his own imaginative illustrations in his music and live shows. With all of his success last year and the high demand from audiences to see him play, k?d is certifiably one of the hottest artists to watch in 2017.
