Icon Spotlight: June
Icon Collective has solidified its reputation as the premier educational facility for electronic music production on the West Coast. The North Hollywood arts school has become a breeding ground for the next generation of talent, as evidenced by its formidable track record, which includes the likes of Jauz, MAKJ, Slander, SNBRN and more.
To spotlight some of the amazing talent coming out of the school, we’ve teamed up with Icon for a new series highlighting tracks from the past month from both current students and Icon graduates.
As expected, June brought along a diverse range of music from the Icon family. Newcomer Bricks debuted his first track “Get Down,” an 808-savvy house track that would have Claude VonStroke smiling. Current student HVDES offered an enticing blend of g-house and tehcno with “NÜ,” while staff members Castor Troy and Boy Bishop sampled Rage Against the Machine for an aggressive collaboration titled “Fuck What They Tell You.”
Meanwhile RNSOM put a deft future bass spin on Marshmello’s “Alone,” while David Garcia and Richard Vission’s Solmatic launched a special club mix of their recent release from Scotty Does Know,” The Creator.”
