If someone would have told us two years ago that a marshmallow helmet-donning DJ would be the most popular thing in 2017, we would have never ever believed it.
While we still aren’t completely sure who’s behind all the acoustic confections– his real identity is rumored to be Chris Comstock (aka Dotcom)– Marshmello has actually rapidly become one of the greatest names in EDM. Simply this year alone, the masked crusader has carried out at celebrations like EDC and Coachella. He signed to Skrillex’s OWSLA label and has actually dropped plenty of candy-sweet earworms, like February’s “Chasing Colors” with Ookay and Noah Cyrus.
If that wasn’t enough, Marshmello’s somehow found time among all his jet-setting to put in work in the studio. Last week, the DJ and producer teased fans with a series of tweets about his recent partnerships with Blackbear, Khalid and Selena Gomez, and he also debuted an unreleased record with Demi Lovato at this year’s Coachella music festival.
Have not experienced Marshmello live? Visit YouTube to see his fully loaded set from this year’s Tomorrowland festival in Belgium for a taste, then go to straight to Captivate on Thursday, followed by Encore Beach Club on Friday, for the genuine deal. The Wynn Night life citizen flies to Canada for the Wayhome Music and Arts festival prior to returning to XS on Sunday for his last Vegas set up until September.
Don’t think for one second that indicates Marshmello is taking a break. In between his Vegas runs, the DJ will embark on a European trip. And ideally, he’ll drop a few of those yummy treats he’s been blending along the method. Marshmello at Intrigue at Wynn, July 27; at Encore Beach Club, July 28; at XS at Encore, July 30.
