COFRESI, a chicago based producer and live performer is making huge waves at the moment. His approach to creating a live musical experience transcends what the majority of the electronic music scene can provide. Not only does he create his own music, but he integrates the production aspect into a full on "drum-off" coupled with sample triggering and effect modulating while in front of a live audience. Not only does his music push the boundaries of what a genre can even encompass, but he keeps his works incredibly catchy and interesting simultaneously. I would be extremely surprised to not see this artist underneath the electronic music spotlight extremely soon.
His newest work is an exclusive, completely original tune called "Bellanova". It incorporates a beautiful and funky soundscape with hip hop drums that were played lived by the artist himself. The beat stays incredibly dance floor friendly and takes you to another ethereal place, as music should do from time to time. Make sure to snag the free download too!
