Welcome to 2014, the year where every DJ, producer, and promoter will declare it being “their year.” We love the determination, but be forreal: everyone can’t own a particular year. Nor is it easy to predict. Last year we had Baauer and Disclosure pegged as artists to watch in 2013; do you think we expected the “Harlem Shake” viral explosion, or the massive Settle, to throw them into the limelight? There’s no exact science to it, but judging off of what these artists accomplished in 2013 coupled with their potential, we have a feeling that these 14 artists will have a lot to celebrate come the end of 2014. Here are DAD’s picks for the artists to watch this year.
