EDM Masks

Move over Marvel! These lot know how to make masks look seriously cool...

Everyone knows the likes of Spiderman and Wonderwoman. They don their costumes and head out to save the world day in day out.

But what about this band of mask-wearing musicians who attempt to save the world every day through their music?

Welcome to your new favourite muscial superheroes...

 

Daft Punk

When it comes to DJ's who wear masks, these guys are pretty much the kings.

They're known across the world for their futuristic masks, but it also helps that they make some of the biggest tunes around too!

Marshmello

He's remixed Calvin Harris, Ariana Grande and Adele and released his debut album earlier this year.

His mask is hugely recognisable yet his identity is so far unknown.

We just love the idea of a guy DJing with a giant marshmellow on his head.

Why didn't anyone think of that before?

Deadmau5

Joel Zimmerman is the man behind the 'mau5head' and he's created some pretty huge tunes over the years.

It's said that the Grammy nominated producer was named deadmouse after literally finding a dead mouse in his computer. He then shortened it to use online and the rest is history.

He designed the mask himself and wanted it to become an icon.

Jaguar Skills

Another DJ/producer whose identity is unknown.

Jaguar Skills has produced tracks across a number of genres and worked with a host of artists.

He wears a balaclava on stage in order to create mystery around his persona and it seems to have worked, becuase we have no idea who he really is!

*Looks around to see who might actually be Jaguar Skills*

Funtcase

Funtcase is nown for his huge Dubstep and Drum & Bass tunes.

His mask is the most 'horror movie-esque' on our list so far.

But his terrifyingly dangerous beats match his disguise, so it all makes sense really!

DJs From Mars

This Italian duo are known best for their song mash ups. The turn chart topping tunes into EDM bangers like no one's business.

They also happen to wear the coolest carboard boxes we've ever seen on their heads.

Who needs iron when you can wear cardboard, right!?

 

SBTRKT

When your name is SBTRKT (pronounced subtract), you kinda have to be mysterious don't you!

Having worked with the likes of Drake, M.I.A and Mark Ronson, SBTRKT is a pretty bug player in the electronic music world.

Wanting to let his music do the talking, he SBTRKT wears modern interpretations of native society ceremonial masks designed by A Hidden Place at live shows.

They're seriously cool too.

Zardonic

Zardonic is a Venezuelan producer who makes some pretty unique music.

He fuses metal with heady EDM beats to create his own standout genre.

His mask was initially a marketing strategy, but he later said it grew to become something much more.

Myndset

Having performed alongside Steve Angello and Major Lazer, Myndset is no amateur in the EDM game.

His driving beats and powerful tunes have earned him some serious recognition, but his mask definitely grabs your initial attention.

The light up eyes add a seriously robotic feature to his image but it must get hot in there!

The Bloody Beetroots

Another Italian act on the list, The Bloody Beetroots is the alias of Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo (although that's an alias too, so we're kinda confused).

Paul McCartney once featured on a Bloody Beetroots track which is very cool, but that mask is even more awesome!

Based on the character 'Venom' from Spiderman, during live sets the eyes on the mask light up at big moments creating a truly incredible spectacle.

 

Squarepusher

Squarepusher has been around for years.

He's released a serious number of projects during his career and his bassy tracks always set off any rave.

His mask is full of LED lights that create an incredible sight behind the decks.

Cazzette

The Killers featured on one of their tracks and they've performed alongside Avicii, so they're no EDM noobs.

Throw in the fact that they wear these ridiculously awesome cassettee masks and we think this Swedish duo could be one of our faves on this entire list!

Dr Lektroluv

Making huge electro tracks with basslines for days, Dr Elektroluv is a very interwsting fugure in the EDM world.

His 'hulk-like' green costume is one of the most stand-out disguises in the DJ world.

There's no mistaking this guy in the decks!

2 Faced Funks

These guys arguably have the best story behind their masks out of anyone on this list...

”We had been dj’ing as a duo for quite a while, when we decided to throw a special birthday party for one of us. We bought some cheap, pink masks and advertised with the fact that we managed to book 2 world-famous DJ’s."

"That night sold out completely, with 1500 people dancing to our set. That was the moment we decided to take the 2 Faced Funks project to the next level. And it works!”

Brilliant.

Mike Candys

The Swiss DJ/producer has had a string of hits across Europe over the years, with his remix of Faithless' classic 'Insomnia' one of his most popular tracks.

His bright yellow smiley face mask accompanies him to every show and he even has matching yellow speakers in his studio!

DJ Bl3nd

He's previously been named 'SoundCloud Artist Of The Year', played sets all over ther world and gained an impressive 360 million views on YouTube - so you know DJ Bl3nd is a pretty big deal!

His unique horror mask is pretty terrifying and there are a number of alternate variations which all feature different coloured hair.

 

DJ Danger

The French producer has remixed the likes of One Republic, La Roux and The Black Eyed Peas as well as releasing his own EPs, which all happen to be named after specific dates!

His dark and mysterious balaclava-style mask with light up eyes makes for an intimidating image behind the decks but always helps getting the crowd hyped, as this vid shows...

Claptone

This bio is really all you need to know about Claptone...

In a now long forgotten world, many generations ago, a bird like shape emerged from wooded darkness, floating and fluttering, drifting and dreaming.

Backlit by a bright glow of iridescent light, the undecipherable form wore a dazzling golden mask. Its long beak swooped down like an inverted horn and since then, people have referred to the mythical being simply as Claptone.

 

Gunz For Hire

According to their bio, this Dutch duo are an alliance formed in the shadows.

Their brand of hammering hardcore beats has earned them a sizeable fan base.

Their DJ disguises, which see them turn into living dolls for each show, are certainly something to behold!
