Shazam Predicts ‘Artists To Watch In 2014’

Music ID app Shazam have spilled the beans on who they predict as ‘Artists To Watch In 2014’ following their ‘Most Searched Tracks of Ibiza’ that we labeled a bonerfied bomb-pit with their future picks sort of, almost, kind of there.

With over 4 billion shazams alone last year amongst their 400 million global users Shazam should have the data to predict a thing or two, although we’d argue popularity doesn’t always equate to an artists overall strength.

Dance or dance affiliated artists make up a good punch of the list with female LA muso Banks, who’s recent work was produced by Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs making the cut alongside Martin Garrix who’s single ‘Animals’ cracked a whole lot of ‘EDM’ erections and lastly Sam Smith who’s work included features on one of Disclosures biggest hits of 2013 “Latch”/

Although not on the electronic side of things, Vance Joy a Melbourne boy at heart also made the list as the only Australian representative, on ya! Check the whole thing below;

Action Bronson: Queens native Bronson lists early influences as Wu-Tang Clan. He launched his first album 2011 but gained huge Shazam tags in 2013 after releasing several hotly tipped mix tapes.
August Alsina: August’s single “I Luv This Shit” has been one of the most Shazamed rap tracks of 2013 and his mix tape tracks are also gaining traction with hip hop heads
Banks: Born Jillian Banks, she started writing music as a teenager in suburban LA and released an acclaimed EP in 2013.
Jhené Aiko: Collaborations with Drake and Big Sean thrust her into the public eye in 2013. Now, after releasing a mix tape, ‘Sail Out’, Aiko looks set for big things.
Kid Ink: XXL Magazine listed Kid Ink among artists like Danny Brown and Macklemore in its 2012 Freshman Class feature. Signed with RCA/Epic, Kid Ink is set to release his first album under a major label this year.
Lucy Hale: Best known for her role as Aria Montgomery on the ABC Family series, Pretty Little Liars, Hale is set to be the next country star.
Martin Garrix: Dutch DJ best known for his track, “Animals,” Garrix is the youngest person ever to top the Beatport charts.
Rich Homie Quan:  Georgia native and artist for the Island Jam label, Quan has been named by the New York Times as one of “Atlanta’s rising generation of rappers … who deliver lines with melody and heart, like singers on the verge of a breakdown.”
Sam Smith: London-born Smith contributed the soaring vocals on Disclosure’s 2013 hit, “Latch” and Naughty Boy’s “La La La.” He prefers the raw soul style in the vein of his favorite artists, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan and Aretha Franklin.
Vance Joy: Originally from Melbourne, Vance Joy has already achieved success in his native Australia with his single, “Riptide,” and is set to break globally this year.

We might actually put together a list of who to watch in 2014… stay tuned.
