BUKU Music + Art Project brought some familiar faces during the 2017 run, but they also introduced us to some unfamiliar ones too. We’ve compiled a list of artists that played BUKU that you need to know.
Budding from the depths of Soundcloud, this young producer isn’t shy to the beats. He made statements last year when he dropped remixes of Daft Punk and Porter Robinson alongside of releasing his own independent projects. His latest single, “Lose Myself” has a melodic vocalist that evens out into a track that stays on repeat.sfam
The energetic duo hailing from Mississippi did not disappoint fans and newbies at BUKU. Michael Pearson and Jacob Hoerner are the two responsible for taking trap to a whole new level in the Back Alley at BUKU, and doing it tastefully so.
As the sub-genre “riddim” sweeps the playlists of many, Boogie T is topping the list. A Louisiana native and music man, Brock Thornton treated attendees to a set full of delicious dubstep. Boogie T has been popping up on lineups across the US with a few sellouts under the belt, too.
Other notable performances include sets from the man behind the mask, Malaa, who brings the house down in house music, Grizmatik, because nothing is saxier than a Griz and Gramatik collaboration, and Zhu, because let’s be honest, that man is and always will be killin’ the game. As Zhu once said, “Great music transcends,” and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for next year.
