I’m sure we can all agree on the respect and appreciation of artists that are pioneering new frontiers in dance music. My latest music discovery, a visionary rising star from Isreal that goes by the name Maor Levi, is doing just that.

I am pleased to report back they proved me wrong on all fronts.
