The person named “Most Likely To Be A DJ” in the high school yearbook is most likely to be a DJ, right? Those superlatives do come true!! At least in the case of Landis, who was his high school’s resident DJ. The difference now is that he has bragging rights after getting support from the world famous Tiësto. A southern Florida native, Landis grew up admiring the EDM scene and wanting insinuate himself into it any way he could. He interned at the music studio of Brass Knuckles and came in contact with the likes of David Solano, DJ Crespo, and Robbie Rivera. He subsequently honed his craft and began to create remixes of songs from popular artists such as Adele, Swedish House Mafia, and Alesso. This garnered a considerable amount of attention and soon he was opening for Hardwell and performing the main stage at Electric Daisy Carnival in Orlando.
Landis recently collaborated with Corporate Slackrs on the climbing electronic hit, “Smash”, now out on Juicy Music. It starts off with a steady escalating beat and at 1:44, we are told by an interjecting voice to “lose yourself”. And we do. The track promptly smashes (song title alert!) into a million pieces and comes back together with a bass heavy synth that keeps you going after the beat drops. The woozy feelings of the in-between-sounds in a house track emerge way through. The “Mortal Kombat”-esque rhythm continues and comes down with about 30 seconds to spare. Just in time for you to regain consciousness and get back to reality. The trailing ending could make for a seriously mind-blowing loop of the song.
Landis’ collaboration with Corporate Slackrs is a match made in house heaven. Their styles flow so effortlessly and create a playground of rough bass and hard hitting electro beats. A star on the rise, Landis is sure to make some serious dents in the EDM world.
