MSCLS is the creation of Austin, Texas native Josh Vela and has become his most coveted musical project to date. While presenting his talents via house and techno undertones, MSCLS background in low-end bass theory is sublimely utilized throughout his productions with traces of hard electro as well.
“House music is at the forefront of my musical tastes; it’s the reason I got into electronic music in the first place so it feels natural to pursue what inspired me?”
MSCLS eclectic collection of originals and remixes has received support and set list features from the likes of Diplo, AC Slater, Treasure Fingers, Neotric, JAUZ, JackLNDN, Go Freek, Vanilla Ace, 12th Planet, Astronomar, Wuki, CRNKN, and Zeds Dead, and will continue to expand as new music is released.
Audiences have taken notice to MSCLS bringing originality to every live performance with bookings at 2015 official SXSW Showcases (including the Beatport event), EDC Las Vegas, Lights All Night, Euphoria Music Festival along with shows across the west coast as far as Hawaii. MSCLS even has a weekly residency in his hometown with crunkstep originator Crizzly. Balancing show opportunities and an aggressive release schedule is only enhancing MSCLS future development as his talents grow throughout 2015
