Marshmello is Dotcom. Malaa is a collaboration between Tchami, DJ Snake and Mercer. Deadmau5 is an extremely intelligent robot designed by Joel Zimmerman to play sold out shows for him. Everyone has their theories as to who is really behind the masks you see playing at all of today’s major festivals. But who is SUMR CAMP?
SUMR CAMP burst onto the scene only four months ago with an official, super groovy deep house remix of Marshmello – Silence (ft. Khalid), which garnered over 360 thousand views on Marshmello’s YouTube channel. Two months later the faceless artist dropped their debut single, Move, which features tech and bass house influences that are sure to get your feet moving.
Move was just the beginning of a larger project though. The rest of SUMR CAMP’s eight-track Winter SUMR CAMP Session EP trickled out over the last two months, and for a while the artist was dropping a new track every week. On February 16, the final single of the series, Drop, was released on all major platforms. The track has a deep/underground feel to it and will definitely leave you wanting to hear more from this up-and-comer.
So…who is SUMR CAMP? The production quality, branding and support from Marshmello make it hard to believe that this is just some random shmuck off the streets. It’s common for big artists to start releasing music under a new alias to branch out from their previous style, and there is already some speculation that Ookay is pulling the strings behind this one.
Whoever this mysterious artist is, you can be sure to see their name a lot more if they continue dropping music at this rate and caliber.
