A year and a half after Caked Up catapulted onto the dance music scene thanks to their raucous online presence and viral content bravado, the Las Vegas duo signed to Dim Mak Records with fistfuls of party-starting tunes in tow.
The newly-minted partnership kicks off with the tandem’s upcoming electro stomper “Rave Police.” Out February 10, the percussion-driven release layers grungy synths and thumping bass kicks atop sexy vocal samples of a female cop asking listeners “did you come here to rave?”
Caked Up fans can get down to “Rave Police” live in all its stadium-smashing glory as the tag-team joins Dim Mak ringleader Steve Aoki for his Neon Future Experience Tour. Presented by Dim Mak and brought to you by Bud Light, the tour begins February 13 in Austin and canvasses North America for over 20 stops, hitting major markets including New York City, Washington D.C., Chicago, Toronto and Boston.
After releasing records on tastemaking imprints such as Mad Decent, Fool’s Gold and Buygore, Caked Up has carved out a home for their notorious brand of rollicking antics. Their studio work is bass-fueled and drum-heavy, frequently furnished with chopped up vocal samples, jagged synths and unapologetically blistering drops. The pair’s monster original outputs are matched only by their officially-commissioned remixes for artists such as A-trak, The Chainsmokers and Flosstradamus.
Comprised of Oscar Wylde and his counterpart Vegas Banger, Caked Up is a homegrown internet sensation born through Oscar’s savvy self-promotion on Vine which earned him the undying adoration of 1.6 million followers to his personal account. Caked Up’s ever-ballooning social media empire aside, the duo is backed by 10+ years of combined DJ experience and an authentic performance chemistry that has ignited crowds at TomorrowWorld, Spring Awakening and Hangout Festival to name a few.
Whether they’re cranking out spine-shaking tracks or soundtracking dance floors across the country, Caked Up is on an unrepentant mission to inject their hallmark boisterous verve into electronic music’s history books.
