Why you should care: Originally the brains behind electro-pop group The Cataracs, Niles Hollowell-Dhar was producing big room anthems long before he broke his KSHMR moniker. A behind-the-scenes producer behind some of EDM’s most popular tracks, KSHMR decided to step out into the light over the past year and truly made a statement when he and Tiesto collaborated for “Secrets.” The song was arguably one of the most popular main stage anthems of the festival season and it was the perfect way for the Indian-Ameircan talent to kickstart his solo venture. With a steady catalog of originals and remixes now under his belt, KSHMR is sure to continue carving a new path in the progressive house landscape with his Eastern-tinged style.
