EDITORS’ NOTES

The enigmatic producer channels candied melodies and incandescent synths on his full-length debut. In “Know Me,” he uncorks a psychedelic sugar rush from a heavyweight trap beat, while “Summer” is a cornucopia of flashing keyboards and fizzing climaxes. Even on the darker “Bounce,” an irrepressible enthusiasm is the driving force in Marshmello’s style. “Want U 2” fuses J-Pop’s giddiness and future bass’s fervor in a magnificent overload of hyperactive cuteness. By the time Omar Linx shows up to deliver the rap that grounds “Keep It Mellow,” you’re so soaked in techno-pop stimulation that a human voice seems downright exotic.

About Marshmello

Enigmatic masked DJ/producer Marshmello makes groove-oriented, synth- and bass-heavy electronic dance music. In the spirit of other masked DJs like Deadmau5 and Daft Punk, Marshmello (whose real identity remains a mystery) appears wearing a full-head-covering marshmallow mask. Despite the anonymity, Marshmello's career blew up in 2015 when he began releasing tracks online, including remixes of Zedd's "Beautiful Now," Jack Ü's "Where Are U Now," and others. From there came shows at New York's Pier 94, Pomona, California's HARD Day of the Dead festival, and Miami Music Week. In 2016, Marshmello released a compilation of his previously released tracks, Joytime, which reached number one on a digital top electronic albums chart. Included on the album was the single "Keep It Mello," featuring rapper Omar LinX. ~ Matt Collar
