The house and techno scene blew us out of the water last year, with future stars pulling out all the stops – and here’s who we’ve got our eyes on in 2023!
It seems like the pandemic was just an awful fever dream as we reflect on a bustling 2022 under the lasers and lights. When it comes specifically to the house and techno scene, its popularity has never been more pronounced, with music seekers swarming major events like Movement, CRSSD Festival, Seismic, ARC, and Skyline Los Angeles, while artists like Dom Dolla, John Summit, and Charlotte De Witte caused a frenzy with each and every set they served up!
Of course, the industry would not be what it is without the backbone of local DJs and rising producers, and 2022 was chock-full of these incredible beatmakers and dancefloor dominators. As the new year celebrations are growing more distant in the rearview mirror, it’s time to take a magnifying glass to the talent who made breathtaking impressions as they moved up and onto major labels or made a lasting impact with their presence behind the decks.
So, pour yourself your favorite beverage and take a load off as you get to know the house and techno artists that Grant Gilmore and Maria Clinton feel you should set your eyes and ears firmly upon. And as you gear up for an eventful 2023, here is a little advice – get to the club or festival early and show love to the supporting acts because they are the future, and they just might turn your world inside out!

Local Dialect is a DJ/producer duo from NYC who kicked off their journey back in 2018 with the release of “Polarity.” Since then they’ve hit the ground running, finding a home on Kyau and Albert’s Euphonic Visions while also making their mark on Grum’s Deep State, Mark Knight’s Toolroom, and Gorgon City’s REALM Records.

Riding the line of progressive and melodic house & techno, Local Dialect took fans on a beautiful ride last year, bringing back memories of the night they played direct support for Gorgon City at the iconic Brooklyn Mirage. In addition, they’re really grabbing the attention of industry pioneers like Pete Tong, who gave their track “Dionysus” a spin on BBC Radio 1 this past spring. What’s more, …….
