Few acts posses the innovative character and diverse repertoire of Los Angeles’ fastest rising name in bass. Dylan Ragland took the name Party Favor in 2011 to bring a series of unexpected influences to electronic music. The result: an effort that helped to pioneer the festival trap genre, turn heads across the globe and land him a spot on Bombsquad Records where his debut EP charted instantly on Beatport. His first single “Meow” went on to land a Top 10 spot as well just months later. Now he jumps between groundbreaking collaborations twisting genre and creating ingenious records.
Taking to station’s like Power 106 to record mixes, and events put on by Insomniac, Disco Donnie Presents, and SFX to perform, he finds his platforms getting larger by the month. Now, with official work on Spinnin Records and plenty more to come, Party Favor offers his music to social audiences well over 70,000 – a Facebook number which only seems to expand daily. Party Favor’s music continues to reel in millions of plays and gain supported in iconic sets such as Jack U’s debut at Ultra Music Festival.
Party Favor’s music receives consistent support from Skrillex, Diplo, Borgore, DJ Carnage, The Far East Movement, Tropkilliaz, Mix Master Mike, Bro Safari, UFO!, DJ Snake and more at the world’s largest venues from UMF to SXSW & Coachella.
