British-Norwegian EDM producer Alan Walker was a mere 18 years old when his track “Faded” became a massive European hit, topping the charts and pushing him onto the world stage.  A true post-millennial child, Walker grew up surrounded by technology and became fascinated by computers. In 2012, inspired by EDM producers K-391 and Ahrix, whom he’d discovered on YouTube, and film composers Steve Jablonsky and Hans Zimmer, he began to create his own music using FL Studio. Working in the genre of “drumstep,” a kind of slowed-down drum’n’bass, he eventually uploaded the instrumental track “Fade”. Fade” was a huge success, causing the majors to take notice and sign Walker to Sony Music in 2015. His first single for the label was “Faded,” a reworked version of “Fade” featuring uncredited lead vocals by Oslo pop singer Iselin Solheim. In 2016, Walker released “Alone” stating the song “is about cohesion. A song that praises the feeling and comfort of solidarity.”

Who would have thought that the mastermind behind Far East Movement’s chart topping song “Like a G6” would later go on to be one of the most prolific and interesting producers in dance music? When Niles Hollowell-Dhar, KSHMR, parted ways with the Cataracts, he knew that he could fill a void in the dance music by creating tracks that not only included his Indian heritage but also had the unique ability to feel alive and like a breath of fresh air. KSHMR’s talent comes as no surprise though, as he started working at a young age, setting up a make-shift studio in his mom’s house where he would produce and record for whoever came over. By doing so he not only solidified himself as a go to producer, but also developed an unprecedented work ethic, turning over track after track as quickly as possible while still being of peak quality. It is KSHMR’s unfailing dedication to his craft and fans that have continuously kept him in the DJMag’s top 100 and as one of the most highly respected DJ’s.
