Watch List: IIIZ - The Future of Electronic Dance Music
There’s no doubt that the youth are turning the future around, and IIIZ are changing the world of EDM music. Vocalist Van Winkle, co-lead singer Mari Brossfield, bassist Jacob Gutierrez and drummer Ross Murakami are here to prove it. Incorporating the elements of alternative rock and electronic dance music, they have been compared to that of retro 80's band, Depeche Mode. IIIZ have even collaborated with legendary American rock band Fishbone and England rock band English Beat. Some may assert that EDM is not “real music,” if a DJ just "pushes buttons." IIIZ are not afraid to challenge that illegitimate stigma. However, there’s something unique about them.... Though they represent electronic music, they incorporate live musicians to perform their electronic tracks on stage. Fans all over are gearing up for the soon-to-be debut album. With the heavy excitement, this could potentially be a very special “waiting for the bass to drop” moment.
