This man needs no introduction. And rightfully so, this fine Indian talent has managed to keep listeners on their toes for almost a decade! Yes, we’re talking about Anish Sood whose debut studio album ‘Future Perfect‘ is all set to arrive in February 2018. Having already shared its first single ‘Starry Night‘, the highly awaited LP promises to embraces pop, funk, disco and techno elements.



Pune-based producer/DJ Ritviz has shown signs of becoming one of India’s biggest dance acts since early on in his career. And if his mammoth ‘YUV‘ EP in 2016 sparked a fire, then his forthcoming album due out this year is poised to slingshot him to the upper echelon of dance music acts in the country. Riding high on the success of his recently released single ‘Udd Gaye‘, make sure to keep an eye out for Ritviz.

Trap music lord RL Grime sent fans into a frenzy in 2017 with a string of releases which included ‘Reims‘, ‘Stay For It‘ featuring Miguel and ‘Era‘. With the timely arrival of his annual Halloween Mix last year, the trap community is now all geared up for the highly anticipated follow up to his groundbreaking debut album ‘Void‘. Titled ‘Nova‘, further information regarding its release continues to be scarce. But fret not, because RL will be coming out all guns blazing once again to justify his position as one of trap’s greatest!

Major Lazer might have not released the successor to ‘Peace Is The Mission‘ in 2017, but the hype surrounding the dancehall trio’s star power has only gone on to grow bigger in the past twelve months! With the surprise release of their ‘Know No Better‘ EP in June last year which saw them team up with the likes of Travi$ Scott, Camilla Cabello, Anitta, J Balvin and more, fans continue to keep an eye out for ‘Music Is The Weapon’ due out in 2018.



Skrillex‘s debut album ‘Recess‘ took over the dance music world by storm back in 2014! And nearly four years later, the OWSLA bossman is yet to release an EP or an album. But everything’s about to change, thanks to a tip by Diplo during a recent interview which stated that Sonny Moore is working on his sophomore album. With a relatively quiet 2017 in his bag, which saw him produce for other artists alongside releasing a numbers of collaborations, all eyes are on Skrillex to make his next big move in 2018!

Apart from the Shelter Tour, Madeon relatively maintained radio silence with his fans throughout 2017. Having dazzled fans with the release of his collaboration with Porter Robinson and his debut album ‘Adventure‘, the French producer is now looking to make a highly awaited return.
