THE DROP: Featuring Heroes x Villains, Barron, Rekoil and More

While electronic music is generally not the main focus of Under The Gun’s coverage, there are quite a few members of our team who enjoy everything from dubstep and d&b to hardstyle and house.

Focusing on producers who aren’t headlining Ultra Music Festival and Tomorrowland (not yet, anyway), this list will provide you with five artists and their must-hear tracks. If you have any suggestions for who should be added to the next edition of this feature, contact Michael …
