Good Morning Mix: TroyBoi's 2018 demolition of Coachella's Sahara tent
Today, Dancing Astronaut is reminiscing about South East London’s own TroyBoi and his 2018 demolition of Coachella‘s Sahara tent. TroyBoi’s uniquely percussive stylings have situated the producer in a lane of his own, where he’s touched on a myriad of genres ranging from trap, dubstep, bass, and filthy, beat-centric party music and worked with worldly melodies that meld his Indian, Chinese, Portuguese, and Nigerian ancestries. The latter has been a key catalyst of TroyBoi’s international allure since 2018, and certainly in the years that preceded his set in Indio Valley.
Positioning remixes of Aaliyah, Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Ferg, Travis Scott, AWOLNATION, Migos, and Snoop Dogg alongside originals from Skrillex, QUIX, Herobust, Montell2099, and more, TroyBoi curates a melting pot of hip-hop and electronic music. TroyBoi originals, “Do You,” “Afterhours” featuring Diplo and Nina Sky, “What You Know,” and a grip of other one-offs from from the OWSLA and Mad Decent-backed artist also make appearances.
