Bro Safari

When Diplo's Mad Decent spin-off label Jeffree's dropped the Bro Safari single "Da Worm" last year, it brightened the spotlight already shining on Nicholas Weiller. Bro Safari might be a relatively new project, but Weiller, who currently performs under that name, earned his stripes as a DJ and producer with years of bass-heavy joints as Knick, and as half of collaborative projects Evol Intent and Ludachrist. Having put his stamp on mash-ups, glitchy downtempo and hard, dark drum-and-bass, Weiller is focusing his latest evolution on moombahton, along with occasional dalliances with the emerging sub-subgenre of trapstep. After spending the summer on the Bros Gone Wild Tour with Baltimore party veteran Tittsworth, Bro Safari will deliver a set that will probably jump styles like a mad Double Dutcher. But no matter which crate he decides to pull from, the dance floor will be packed for a sermon on serious low-end frequencies.
