Fed up with artists who only have one sound and every song kinda feels all too similar? Us too. For some healthy variety, look no further than Whethan’s massive 15-track album, Fantasy. Just check out the impressive list of collaborators on this project … from STRFKR to RL Grime, The Wombats to Oliver Tree … each of these artists have incredible works of their own (we’ve featured many on Album Daily in the past!) but to have them all together on one album is nothing short of incredible. While it certainly is difficult to pinpoint a genre on this bad boy, Whethan is starting to key-in on a style of electronic produced music that highlights sounds from across the musical landscape most DJs and producers tend to avoid. It certainly has a fun pop feel, solid electronic production, and some notable indie + rock collaborators, so just for kicks I like to call it “IndiEDM.”
Bonus Content: At just 22 years old, this Chicago native has already become a recognizable name in electronic community and is only becoming more popular. Check out this article where Whethan breaks downs each track on the album and includes some awesome lyric videos and visualizers.
