SNARELIST #29: Kesin

This week’s Snarelist is from up-and-coming producer, Kesin, who we recently featured on the blog this week! Enjoy this end-of-summer playlist, just in time for your weekend.

Tortoise and the Snare was born out of five friends’ love for all forms of electronic music. Hailing from Washington, D.C., which over the past few years has emerged as a burgeoning hotspot for dance music, we have had the privilege of both seeing first-hand and participating in the growth and explosion of a scene that is now considered one of the go-to stops for DJs in the Eastern US.

We ultimately want to create a space for Electronic music fans of all kind to come to be exposed to (and even share themselves) up-and-coming production and DJ talent from around the world. We know there is an incredible amount of unknown, unnoticed, and under-appreciated talent all over the world. It is our goal to provide a medium for fans of dance music to discover new artists that may quickly become their new favorites.
