Whethan, aka Ethan Snorek, the 17-year-old EDM artist currently dominating the electronic scene, is playing Boulder’s Fox Theater this Thursday, February 23rd on his Savage tour. Why have his drops become so highly sought after, and essentially helped form a new movement in EDM you ask? It’d be best if you nabbed tickets to see for yourself, but here’s the scoop:
Initially gaining traction with a remix of Mssingo’s “XE3,” Whethan took off when the track received (to date) more than 8 million plays on SoundCloud. Whethan then caught the attention of some pretty popular EDM artists including Oliver Tree, Flux Pavilion, MAX, and the most prominent arguably being Skrillex.
Originating from Chicago IL, Snorek, who formerly performed under the name “Wheathin,” has since developed a significant following and is the youngest artist ever signed to Future Classic Records. With an almost signature blend of deep bass and catchy, emotional riffs, fans are definitely looking forward to where this young producer is heading, and it’s not surprising that everyone and their brother has attempted collabs with this artist.
So if you’re big into EDM, or you’re simply looking to listen to whoever is the next big thing in the scene right now, get your tickets for this Thursday’s Fox show. Things are going to get Savage.
