When thinking back on 2013 and considering those new artists who really caught our attention. Nom De Strip easily makes it to the top of our list. Also known as Chris Elliott, the Scottish artist got his big break from Deadmau5 and the Maustrap label with his “Channel 42” remix. This year the Rising Music star attracted attention with his Clouds EPs, original collaborations, and inventive remixes, establishing his own signature blend of dance-heavy electro.
Returning to Chris Lake’s Rising Music for the first time since August’s “Devil’s BBQ” alongside Nezza, rising star Nom De Strip‘s newest production has landed on Beatport. Heard when he, Chris Lake and TJR took over Diplo & Friends in September, “I Can’t Believe” is another high-octane addition to Chris Elliot’s discography. Utilizing a fierce assault of high pitched synths and ominous vocals throughout, Nom De Strip’s newest release is ready for big room glory as 2013 winds down.
