You won’t know this Austrian DJ coming to MN by name, but you know his music

Even if Parov Stelar’s name has never crossed your lips, his songs have made it to your ears.

Some of the most swingin’ ads from Bacardi, Lexus, Chevrolet, and many more have featured the Austrian artist’s retro dance music. And more than 100 million YouTube views for his songs suggest a generation of Shazam users are catching on to this “electro swing.”

Twin Cities listeners will have an opportunity to catch Stelar live on November 3 when he visits Myth. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, June 16 at 10 a.m.

Stelar’s touring in support of The Burning Spider, which features “Soul Fever Blues.” The song samples blues legend Muddy Waters in a style quite familiar to those who remember Moby’s blues-techno breakthrough, Play.

A veteran of Coachella, Glastonbury and over 700 of his own performances, Stelar’s a big deal all over the world.

Here’s some of Stelar’s work featured in ads:
