Young American producer 3lau, also known as Justin Blau, returns to the Northwest for Lucky 2014. Northwest dance music fans are no stranger to 3lau, who has visited the area several times in his young career. The 23-year-old house artist’s last visit came in June of 2013 at the Paradiso Festival. He also performed at Washington State University in October of 2012, and is returning to Pullman on February 20th. 3lau will then make the trek west and perform in Portland at The Whiskey Bar on February 21st.
Known for his methodical mashups, 3lau blasted onto the dance music scene in 2011. His bootlegs of Girls (Who Save the World) and All Night Long began his rise, which turned into shows across the United States by 2013. In addition to Paradiso, 3lau also featured at EDC Orlando and Electric Zoo. His ‘3lau Haus’ mixes are fantastic showcases of his ability to translate the mashups into mixes and is definitely an artist you don’t want to miss at Lucky 2014.

Formerly a member of drum and bass trio Evol Intent, Bro Safari shows that while music can evolve and change, so can artists. Also known as Nick Weiller, Bro Safari has experimented with moombahton, trap, dubstep, and more since starting his solo journey in 2011. His latest production is a 10-track LP with UFO! titled Animal, in which versatility, not genre-status, is the name of the game.
Bro Safari made a couple Northwest stops in 2013, joining 3lau at Paradiso in June and performing with Zomboy at the Roseland Theater in Portland in May. His unique sound and style isn’t one that those who have yet to experience it live will want to miss.
