Hailing from the City of Angles, gLAdiator, the musical vision currently pioneered by Dan Goodman and Ian Johnson, has illuminated itself as a promising and progressive presence in the electronic music arena. Goodman and Johnson have made a notable and and lasting impression on listeners as they have and continue to bring new life and flavor into trap, a domain of electronic music that is often over-saturated with repetition and lacking new, innovative musical ideas. But their influence does not stop there. Though the duo is quickly rising the ranks in the sphere of trap, they have showcased a keen capacity to produce across the spectrum of electronic music, bridging sounds and styles from the likes of moombahton to dub step.

With energy intensive live sets and a stedy stream of content for listeners to get their feet wet in, gLAdiator will undeniably be etching its presence into what is in store for electronic music in the months and years to come. For those not familiar, get acquainted with the duo through our recent interview where Goodman and Johnson silence critics on trap, touch on musical transitions, and reminisce on their learning experience from playing abroad.
