“A long established favorite of the bass favoring masses, ETC!ETC! has fast become one of North America’s most promising trap and moombahton jugglers”
- Dancing Astronaut
If you thought ETC!ETC! would slow down even for a moment, you played yourself. The LA-based beatsmith links with fellow Angeleno TIGHTTRAXX for the rattling turn-up tune “Trompa.” The producing twosome take the track from electro to trap and back again, pummeling the beat with a double-time drumroll and serpentine horn line. Already being supported by Skrillex, Jack Ü and Flosstradamus, the track is moving crowds left and right. Check out the tune going off during ETC!ETC!’s Coachella set here.
“Trompa” marks the latest in a long string of collaborations between ETC!ETC! and TIGHTTRAXX. A sought after pairing, Valentino Khan recruited the producers for an official remix of his game-changing record “Deep Down Low.” They’ve also linked for bootlegs of Yellow Claw’s “DJ Turn It Up” and The Chainsmokers’ “Kanye,” and raised the production bar with originals like “Jungla,” and “All Over Di World.”
ETC!ETC! arrives fresh off a massive 2015. Following appearances at TomorrowWorld, Beyond Wonderland, EDC Las Vegas, and Mad Decent Boat Party, he delivered his highly anticipated EP Wicked to critical acclaim. Across six highly diversified tracks that saw collaborations with Fatman Scoop, Sanjin, and Hawkeye, the project was ETC!ETC!’s most multi-faceted to date, earning support from Complex, Dancing Astronaut, Your EDM and more.
Alex Sardo honed his craft for years ahead of debuting the TIGHTTRAXX alias. Before his solo stint, he was one half of the duo DSKOTEK, who scored stage time at EDC Las Vegas and Nocturnal Wonderland after winning Insomniac's first ever Discovery Project in 2012. When he emerged as a producer in his own right, TIGHTTRAXX began creating exactly that: tracks so tight they caught the attention of upper echelon artists like Diplo and Borgore.
