IQ’s latest Radar Station Chart reveals one-man production Still Woozy as February’s fastest growing artist online, followed by Lennon Stella and Ari Lennox
By Anna Grace on 15 Mar 2019
Electronic and acoustic fusion artist Still Woozy, real name Sven Gamsky, has climbed seven places to become the hottest new act of February, beating Radar Station Chart newcomers Lennon Stella and Ari Lennox.
The Radar Station algorithm calculates the fastest-growing new artists by combining data across a number of online platforms, including Spotify, Facebook, Songkick and Last.fm. Producer and songwriter Benny Blanco was last month’s chart-topper, see January’s chart here.
Genre-bending Still Woozy is the solo project of California-based Sven Gamsky, following a stint as part of indie rock band Feed Me Jack. As Still Woozy, Gamsky has so far released six singles.
Still Woozy’s most recent release, “Habit”, is from forthcoming self-released EP Lately, which will be out early this year. The artist’s two most popular songs are “Goodie Bag” and “Cook”, released in 2017.
The artist, represented by Paradigm’s Josh Mulder in the Americas and WME’s Jay Belin in the rest of the world, is currently on tour in the United States and will play at this year’s Coachella Music and Arts Festival in California.
