Falcons: The DJ you need to know at Sole Superior Afterparty 2017
Having just joined prominent New York record label Fool's Gold Records, Athletixx-affiliated producer Falcons is a new face to watch
Not to be mixed up with French DJ Falcon, rising from the decks is Californian DJ and producer Michael Graham, more popularly known as Falcons. As part of Los Angeles DJ Collective, Athletixx (alongside KITTENS, Hoodboi and Promnite), his street cred amongst the industry's most admired producers has been solidified. With hits such as 'Boo You Know ft. GolddLink', 'Want Your Body' and 'Aquafina ft. GoldLink and Chaz French' chalking up more than 28 million cumulative streams, Falcons proves that he's more than just a Drake follower.
Hailing from the South, Falcons has been laying down an eclectic mix of sick beats for the past six years, experimenting with a mix of R&B, trap and Southern hip-hop. His wide-ranging reference to different genres of music has seen him through intercontinental journeys between North America, Asia, Europe and Australia with performances at Boiler Room and Coachella, just to name a few.
Apart from his impressive portfolio of big names, check out his Instagram feed of coloured fluorescent cool and underground street style. When Hypebeast needs a new man to front their pages, they know who to look for. Until then, Sole Superior 2017, a sneaker and streetwear convention, has aptly chosen Falcons to spin at their afterparty. A sneakerhead himself, Falcons is not one to shy away from his love for shoes. Check out his choice kicks on his Instagram account, an addition to our 'following' list this week.
