This Florida-based producer/DJ’s tracks demonstrate a variety of vibes and have a deep-space resonance that’s ideal for festival shows. “Summer Sunset,” which sounds like a spirited conversation among caffeinated synthesizers, is, bottom-line, a memorable theme (if a wee bit long). “Makalu” shows off the artist’s use of escalating rhythms, percussion builds and hard/soft dynamics, though we would have liked more impact from his third drop. Husky-voiced Jodie Topp guests on “We All Want Love,” and her rangey authority is well-suited to EDM and the song’s encouraging message of ecstatic love. Anything But Broke should be anything but absent from your next festival. Are you listening, HARD fest?
