Stacked with a vast catalog of songs that range from dance-floor-dominating sexy kinetic club beats, to deep and captivating downtempo/melodic material that works just as comfortably on the home stereo.
Not showing any signs of slowing down,Gladkill has maintained a consistent and impressive performance schedule. He has recently toured with Bassnectar throughout America and Canada and played numerous flagship music festivals (including 3 appearances at Coachella Music Festival on The Do Lab stage, festivals in Canada, Costa Rica and the continental U.S.) Beginning in early 2014, he launched his own record label, a collaboration with fellow musician Sugarpill called Foundations Recordings, and has been touring nationally to support their new endeavor through the Spring of 2014. His upcoming EP Accolades (due in June) will be the first official release on Foundations Recordings, an exciting new chapter in Gladkills musical journey.
