Talented beyond his years, DJ and producer Ethan Snoreck, better known as Whethan, is building upon an already fast-paced breakout onto the electronic music scene. The eighteen-year-old Chicago native has transformed from a gifted SoundCloud producer to travelling the United States alongside The Chainsmokers and shredding his first headline tour within two years. His first release on SoundCloud was his edit of Mssingno’s “XE3”, which now has over 10 million plays. Wheaty continued by remixing tracks for the likes of fellow Chicagoans Louis The Child, Elohim, and ZAYN, and quickly gained himself attention. Two innovators of the EDM sound, Skrillex and Flux Pavilion, discovered Whethan’s raw potential and set him up to start producing tracks of his own.
Releasing fire single after fire single since early 2016, the kid was a regular at all the biggest festivals throughout Spring and Summer 2017. His sets on the Do LaB Stage at Coachella 2017 confirmed his spot as the next up-coming DJ. What sets Whethan apart from any DJ doing it right now is his assortment of sounds. He has the ability to create an up-tempo EDM jam with a big drop such as his late 2016 single “Savage” (feat. Flux Pavilion & MAX), or slow it down and combine indie vibes with electro like his hit single and debut tour’s title “Good Nights” (feat. Mascolo) June, 2017. While most DJs find their sound and stick to it, Whethan gives versatility a new meaning.
With the help from friend and up and coming vocalist Oliver Tree, the future star is producing heat with their first two collabs. In 2016 they dropped “When I’m Down”, which now has over 8.5 million hits on Spotify, a new Pop-style vibe with dope lyrics and a catchy beat. In Fall 2017 Whethan and Tree dropped “Enemy”, following in this Pop-style direction. He has continued down this avenue while producing “Aw Yeah” April, 2018, for the talented young rapper Blaise Railey.
Eighteen years old with almost 5 million Monthly Listeners on Spotify and a plethora of raw remixes and originals already under his belt, Whethan is exploding onto the scene. His style and creativity will continue to push him to the next level.
