DJ/producer KSHMR is well-known for his bangers which always include his signature sound; the sounds of the East, where his roots lie. The American born and of Kashmiri-Indian descent always finds a way to perfectly intertwine dance music with Indian music. His catalogue consists of a string of hits, including his debut release ‘Megalodon’ and Beatport hits ‘Burn’, ‘Secrets’, ‘Karate’, ‘Memories’, ‘Heaven’, ‘Strong’ and ‘Bazaar’ which all have peaked at #1 overall and quickly garnered him a rapidly growing fan base. In 2015, KSHMR was awarded the highest new entry in DJ Mags top 100 at #23.
KSHMR has continued his run of success into 2016 with a number of phenomenal singles such as ‘Touch’ and ‘Wildcard’, massive performances at Coachella and EDC Las Vegas. He climbed 11 spots in DJ Mags top 100 to #12 and was awarded with Best Live Act of the year. KSHMR also released his long form debut, The Lion Across The Field EP, which served as the musical companion piece to a children’s book by the same name written by KSHMR himself.
To end 2016 with a big bang, KSHMR is back with his last release of this year. Teaming up with Marnik, this power front releases ‘Mandala’ featuring Mitika, the official Sunburn 2016 Anthem, which is out now on Spinnin’ Records.
“It was a big honor to do the Sunburn Anthem, the festival means so much to me and I worked hard with Marnik and Mitika Kanwar to make it special” – KSHMR
Italian phenomena, Marnik, have made their mark as one of the most promising talents in today’s scene as they quickly scale the Beatport charts, perform electrifying sets around the world, and garner
the support of dance music icons. Emanuele and Alessandro, known as Marnik, have truly impressed the masses with their distinct originals; boasting tantalizing melodies influenced by trance and progressive house, resulting in pure anthemic productions that command each and every crowd. Their catalogue include ‘Bazaar’, another collaboration with KSHMR, which reached the Beatport Overall #1 and the top 10 hits ‘Heart Starts To Beat’ with Blasterjaxx, ‘Jump Around’ with Tony Junior and ‘Orion’ with Lush & Simon, to name a few.
Marnik have toured Europe with Steve Aoki, hitting coveted destinations including Pacha Ibiza, Ushuaia Ibiza, Queen Paris, and BCM Planet Dance in Mallorca, Spain. Notable highlights scope from their set at Nameless Music Festival in Italy to their juggernaut performance at Tomorrowland in Belgium, marking a career milestone. While the duo is overjoyed regarding their accomplishments both musically and touring – wise, their proudest moment thus far is their emergence into television, as they were selected to be the faces of Seat Italy’s latest promotional campaign on MTV as well as their X Factor Italy appearance that have given them exposure to millions watching at home. Breaking into this market, particularly with the Gen-Y demographic, has put them in an envious position that lifts their brand to an international level.
With the release of ‘Mandala’, Marnik also ends a very succesfull year with a bang.
“We are honored and grateful to be a part of the new Sunburn Anthem with KSHMR once again and the fabulous Mitika Kanwar. So much love around this one.” – Marnik
‘Mandala’ is already supported by Hardwell, Tiesto, David Guetta, Steve Aoki, R3hab and more.
