Surf Mesa (Astralwerks)
4/28/20

WHAT IT IS: Long before topping the Spotify Viral charts, 19-year-old electronic DJ/producer Powell Aguirre, a.k.a. Surf Mesa, worked on perfecting his niche sound. The talented youngster, who grew among a family of musicians, is a classically trained composer. Surf Mesa’s breezy instincts shine on his Astralwerks debut, “ily (i love you baby)” f/Emilee, which transforms Franki Valli’s classic, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” into a bouncy summer jam filled with smooth harmonious melodies. The runaway single, which began to resonate at TikTok, has zoomed up the Spotify Global chart and is the perfect introduction to Surf Mesa’s addictive brand of music.
