Mansions on the Moon initially impressed with Paradise Falls, an album co-signed by DJ Benzi and Diplo. If you aren’t acquainted with “She Makes Me Feel”, get familiar below:

The act’s space age ambient pop with a hip-hop edge must have charmed Pharrell as well, since he executive produced their latest EP, Lightwaves. All five tracks balance pop sensibility with a sense of calm, but “Take A Look” shines as synthy piece that would line up nicely next to M83 on your next playlist.

Even more exciting, their just announced tour features a stop at the brand new ATL venue, Terminal West. If you’ve been following their progress on Facebook, you’re probably just as amped as I am to check out the shiny new space.
