We all know Beatport is infamous for their remix contests and If you're a regular visitor you may be familiar (and if you're not you should be!) with the name Candyland. Santa Monica natives, Ethan Davis and Josie Martin are the twosome that successfully won two Beatport Play remix contests in a row! With that said, many of their remixes come in the form of Dubstep but you can find other sounds here too.
First they took the crown when they won the Bingo Players' "Rattle" Remix Contest, which was released on Spinnin' Records. The track was an instant hit and topped the Beatport Dubstep chart for weeks on end and still claims a cozy spot in the Top 50. Just recently, they entered the Skrillex ft. Damian Marley "Make It Bun Dem" Remix Contest, taking home the grand prize once again, assuring themselves of a release on the OWSLA/Big Beat imprint.
But wait...there's more. The guys have their first single off their upcoming Bring The Rain EP is "Castle Of Affair." From the start the song is inticing from the lulling vocals of Peter Dawson and the intricate chord progressions flow swiftly. But make sure you brace yourself for when the drop comes. That's when 'Castle Of Affair' unleashes its power full force.
Candyland ft. Peter Dawson - "Castle Of Affair" will be released on Spinnin' Records December 3. Peep the track below and look out when it hits the digital storefront!
