Band/Artist Profile

DBB 13 Artist Profile: Earthly


The Triangle may be known for its indie scene, but it’s home to an inventive electronic community as well. Part of this community is the DJ-duo Earthly, hailing from the Durham area. Earthly’s unique sample-based DJing makes their sound hard to classify; their newest release Days ranges from fun and exciting vibes on the track “Ice Cream” to more calm, consistent beats on “Daemon.” Their interesting mix of serene and playful sounds will either have you dancing or feeling like you’re playing a video game on a cloud.

With the increasing recognition of the Triangle electronic scene, Earthly is bound to have a popular year in 2016. The duo’s debut album got a 7.8 from Pitchfork last July, which I think is a pretty good sign that they are on to something big.

Bring your friends, wear a cool outfit, and come have fun with Earthly on night two of Double Barrel Benefit 13.
