Meet November’s Artists and DJs to Watch

Meet November’s Artists and DJs to Watch

If you’re like us, you probably need some new music to get you through these final weeks of holiday shopping, crunch time at work or studying for finals. Luckily, November’s Artists and DJs to Watch, while all diverse, have one thing in common: their tracks will power you through the rest of 2019. 

This month you’ll meet an identical twin whose bubbly pop music was inspired by computer games, a Jimi Hendrix fan who built the studio he works out of, and several DJs who are as talented at running parties as they are at spinning. Read on to learn more about this talented group of creatives, and tune in to our Instagram and Twitter for more Artists and DJs to Watch each week.
