We spend all year listening to music, discovering new artists, watching people’s careers unfold and seeing their progress as those same artist’s spend hours slaving away behind their computers, hoping one day to get the recognition their art deserves. Every year blogs put out end of the year lists and quite frankly, garbage popularity contests of who you should be aware of next year. Typically, those artists have already made it.

We can’t guarantee you that we picked up absolutely every artist that deserves to be on here, we can’t promise that we’ve heard of every artist making a splash in the world, but we definitely tried.

We tried our best to keep the list primarily up and coming artists with a few exceptions that are right at, or on the line, of being too successful for the list. We wish all of you well in 2018 & hope you’re too successful to make the list next year.

“2017 was absolutely bonkers one minute I’m busting my ass in the local scene the next thing I know I’m playing a festival and going on two tours, one of which was international. I’m still in complete shock over how much has happened especially since it all happened in the last 6 months of the year. Being on this list is just the icing on the cake because it lets me know that my hard work hasn’t gone unnoticed. I don’t want to spoil to much of what coming in 2018 but let’s just say soon your world will be mine.”
-Sweet Tooth


“Extremely humbled you thought of me! 2018 is looking amazing so far, you will be seeing me on a lot more festivals, collabs with some of my biggest inspirations, and starting the year off with a bang. Ill be joining Datsik on his Ninja Nation Tour in 2018!”

“Hey guys first of all im stoked to be apart of the list this year! I appreciate all the support youve all given me thus far & cant wait to show you whats next. I feel like 2017 was a pivotal year for the come up with my brand & music. I showcased a wide range of the G-House sound and took a lot of risks, but its seemed to have paid off. 2018 is gonna be a heavy one as I’m planning on to release a ton of music & will be working with more rappers for original vocals and features to really try and set the bar for G-House in the future. Cheers”

“I’m really honored to have made this list! 2017 was a really productive year for me–I put out my first EP (which charted) and got to collab with my brother Dack Janiels and my girl Reid Speed. I was fortunate to play some dope shows supporting artists like Slushii, Habstrakt, Protohype and getting to play at Burning Man! This year 40oz Cult teamed up with Space Yacht to throw some sick events in Austin for SXSW and takeovers in Los Angeles. I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for me! Look out for a new EP and a bunch more shows announcements soon :)”

Whatever 2018 holds I’m ready for it, and I’m hitting the ground running. This list means a lot to me because for as long as I’ve done this I’ve never felt any sort of recognition for what I do, so many days in silence and in darkness that are finally coming to light!”
