Good Nights and Lots of Waffles for this Tour.
Beginning his music career at the age of 16, The young DJ has collaborated with many artists such as Elohim, Ashe, MAX, Flux Pavilion, Mascolo, Charli XCX, and more!
Ethan Snoreck, also known as his moniker Whethan, has become one of the most talked about electronic producers today, hitting the New Music Friday ranks a few times already with some of his recent releases, and really making some great tracks that last in your mind and heart with their eccentric and satisfying vibe .
Whethan hails from a suburb just outside Chicago, IL called “Orland Park”, where he would listen to artists like Skrillex, who seemed to have a sound completely of their own that he never witnessed before. As a result, that then inspired him to try and make his own music and his own sound.
“Music is a weird thing, kinda other worldy, and most of the time, I feel like I have no idea how I got into it, feels like it just chose me. Been obsessed ever since” says the two-time ranking New Music Friday champion.
The artist is now on his big Good Nights headlining tour around the states! He’ll be making a stop with us in Boston, MA on October 27th at the reputable venue, The Sinclair (Cambridge), and we’re excited to see what experiences he’ll bring to the city with his music. Excited by the energy his fans have been emitting thus far, he lets us in on some of the things to look forward to on the tour. “I’m the most amped for this tour. Super excited to put on the show and create the world I want on this tour. The visuals and the music will hopefully put you into the world I’m creating through the music. The fans should expect all my music with a ton of other super hype moments and a lot of new music as well.”
As you can see in the tour video above, his description is not wrong. The screaming fans, the lights, the moody visuals, and the smiles take over the aura of the venues he plays for, igniting the night and controlling the dance floor.
The artist who has been known for defining his own craft explains how his favorite vibes come most from the alternative and more unexpected sounds that give off a familiar experience while also offering a catchy and novel encounter for the listener. “Definitely love to work on whatever the vibe of that session/day is.” His signature move is adding a synth-filled drop to a clear and mellow track with an upbeat tune.
The song that made a ruckus for the young artist, making it on the New Music Friday playlist first, was his single “Good Nights”. “‘Good Nights’ was inspired by the idea of wanting to just let everything go and having a great time. Not worry about what will happen later but just enjoy the moment and find time to make these moments.”
The 17-year old’s second single to make the list however, “‘Sleepy Eyes’” on the other hand, while they both are uplifting songs, is more about the love and feeling that someone has for their partner. It’s a dreamy single that pleases both my fanbase and Elohim’s fanbase respectively.”
Now, I had to get into the nitty gritty about Whethan himself, or I guess Ethan in this situation, so why not? I asked…
“My favorite food like most of my fans will know is waffles. Eat them probably every day or at least 5 times a week.” It’s true. Take a look at the young man’s cover image of himself on Spotify. He really loves his waffles and breakfast foods. He also admitted that his diet is a bit strange and that he’s a picky eater, eating more so waffles, chicken tenders, and burgers, on a usual basis. When I asked him who was an artist that he thinks his fans would not expect him to be listening to, he replied, “Someone I listen to who people might not think of me listening to is Mac Demarco. I’m a huge Mac fan and really love all the albums he’s put out. We have very different styles but I love finding influence in all styles.” It is a very strange and yet understandable connection for the artist to be fond of Demarco because both have that feel-good factor in their music.
So how does the young curator of joyful, electronic, indie-pop dance music get prepared for shows like these? “It’s funny with me I have so many power songs that depends on the moment. I’m always onto the next thing. It’s so hard for me to pick one song. My tour manager has a song that always pumps him up in times of stress and that song is Sade – Smooth Operator. He puts it on and it always soothes the vibe.”
So, now that you know the talented producer a little bit more, go take a chance and dance into his wonderland of exhilarating music while he’s still touring! Touring dates are below!
