Los Angeles-based Ephwurd are an in-demand house music duo known for their genre-bending approach to electronic dance music, often dubbed "bass house" due to its contemporary dubstep-style "bwah" bass drops. Formed in 2014, Ephwurd feature the talents of Canadian-born DJ/producer Troy Beetles (aka Datsik) and California-born DJ/producer Basie Hauser (aka Bais Haus), the son of late Manhattan Transfer member Tim Hauser. Longtime friends, the duo first began collaborating on music while on tour with Steve Aoki. Hoping to build an air of mystery, Ephwurd initially released their 2014 debut single, "Closer to the Sun," without revealing their individual identities. A remix of Major Lazer and DJ Snake's "Lean On" followed in 2015 and helped hype audiences for the reveal. After announcing that Datsik and Bais Haus were indeed the duo behind Ephwurd, they delivered a high-energy collaboration with Jauz, "Rock the Party." Several more well-received singles followed in 2015, including "Duckface" and "Bring it Back." In 2016, Ephwurd continued to raise their profile, headlining a West Coast tour. ~ Matt Collar
