It’s been a great year for Ghastly. From releasing tracks on record labels like OWSLA and Mad Decent to playing festivals around the world, the producer truly embodies the best qualities of a rising producer in the EDM world. He’s also quickly become of EDM’s more candid figures, using social media as a platform to give advice and pass on motivation to hopefuls looking to make their dreams come true.

This past weekend, Ghastly played the Phoenix Lights music festival in Phoenix, Arizona, a bit of a homecoming show for him considering he lived on a farm in the state before gaining widespread recognition. During his set, Ghastly brought out his six-year-old nephew on stage and helped him on top of the DJ table to see and even talk to the crowd. The moment once again reinforced Ghastly’s ability to make EDM (especially his hard-hitting flavor of house and bass music) more than about the music by spreading the message that anyone can achieve their dreams if they work hard enough.

Yesterday was really special, I took the opportunity to give my 6 year old nephew a memory he will never forget.
