You may have heard of the up-and-coming Brooklyn artist Von Sell through his dominance on Hype Machine, or some other outlet of the blogosphere. His sound is based on a subgenre of electronica that has gained immense popularity recently, marked by synths and drum machines that work in an optimistic symbiosis. Some of the most recognizable mainstream pop stars (Bieber, Jepsen) have employed it on recent works in keeping ahead of the trend, but for Von Sell it’s a natural fit, adding layers of joy to his already whimsical music.
