This month’s ICON Spotlight by Dancing Astronaut features music from Dillon Nathaniel, Thomas Garcia, Kompany, and Castor Troy.
Tracks of the Month
ICON Collective is proud of the expanding creative community of ambitious music producers, artists, entrepreneurs, and industry veterans. To spotlight the amazing talent coming out of the Collective, we’ve teamed up with Dancing Astronaut for a monthly series showcasing music from both students and ICON Alumni.
First up on our August spotlight is LA producer Dillon Nathaniel, who contributed a UK-inspired minimal track to surging bass house imprint, Night Bass. Following a similar trajectory is Thomas Garcia, who dropped his Miss Kitten-esque vocal bomb, “Mad Descent,” on underground imprint House of Hustle.
Turning things to the more bass-driven side, Kompany teamed up with Nitti Gritti for a frenetic collaboration on Dim Mak titled “Badlands.” Meanwhile, Castor Troy delivered a delectably clean remix of Keiynan’s R&B smash “Higher.” Lastly, new artist and recent Icon grad Sheol remixed the main theme from “Stranger Things” into a menacing blend of techno, electro, and dubstep.Dancing Astronaut
