Released on his very own Dharma Worldwide label, ‘Good Vibes Soldier’ follows KSHMR (real name Niles Hollowell-Dhar)’s recent ‘Neverland’ production, a thumping big-room production which is of stark contrast to the reggaeton tones found on ‘Good Vibes Soldier.’ Teaming up with Rastafarian duo Head Quattaz, the melodic track showcases KSHMR’s sonic diversity, and precedes his upcoming weekend of performances at Mysteryland Festival in the Netherlands, and Germany’s ‘New Horizons’.
Best known also for his huge 2015 Tiesto collaboration ‘Secrets’, (over 40 million Spotify streams), KSHMR has since produced a wealth of huge tracks. Among them ‘Megalodon,’ ‘Burn’ ‘Karate’ and ‘Wildcard’ – the latter on Tiesto’s Musical Freedom label – and soon began to garner interest worldwide, teaming up with Headhunterz on ‘Dharma’ and collaborating with Hardwell on ‘Power.’
Later awarded with DJ Mag’s ‘Best Live Act’ award, a nod to the vast array of instruments used in shows; and a foreshadowing of his Ultra 2017 performance, when the American was joined by a 7 person band, including keyboard, violin, viola, cello, flute, trombone and taiko drum. KSHMR also prides himself on his own creative freedom, and hands-on approach in the studio.
Rising as high as #12 in the latest DJ Mag Top 100 rankings, KSHMR continues to innovate. He’s setting up his own Dharma Worldwide label, and premiering his ‘Lessons of Dharma’ tutorial series online, where artists on his label host sessions to show their creative process. KSHMR also offers his ‘Sounds of KSHMR’ sample packs via Splice; Volume 3 was released just this week, supplying the public with all the tools they need to become producers themselves, becoming the #1 selling artist sample pack on Splice in the process.
Furthermore, headlining huge festivals such as Tomorrowland, EDC Las Vegas, and Coachella, KSHMR’s recent tour saw the Californian bring snow machines, fire bowls, and 4D special effects to his crowds as he once again goes above and beyond for his fans, cementing his reputation as one of the most dynamic and diverse acts in global electronic music right now.
