1. Ryan Hemsworth
Da gawd. If you haven’t heard of Hemsworth by now, it's time to meet him (Check Hemsworth in "9 DJs That Deserve More Shine." He loves aggressive rappers but his music is like experiencing mist at the top of a mountain when you’re tripping on LSD. In other words, it’s full of breezy vibes and joy. He’s laid down melodic rhapsodies for countless rappers including Main Attrakionz, Aaron Cohen, 100s, and Antwon, but his inspirations ping-pong from Japanese producers to dance DJs. He straddles the line between R&B, rap, and electronic music so effortlessly that it’s not hard to see how he’s the future of more than one genre.
