Bearded Pittsburgh native Buku
(real name Robert Balotsky) makes trap tinged EDM for booty shakers and melodic rhythm lovers alike. Every beat is punchy, every sample perfectly placed, and every drop aims to take your breath away. Buku is a drummer at heart, and his technical prowess is unmatched, which isn't surprising for someone who studied music. Designing sounds is Buku's thing and, if you need further proof, he's been embraced by big names like Bassnectar and Diplo. Live, be prepared to get lost in the layers of sound and rhythm.
