Best Electronic Collective (2013)

WeDidIt

L.A.-based electronic DJ/producer crew WeDidIt was founded in 2008 by Nick Meledandri and Henry Laufer, the latter also known as venerated beat-scene producer Shlohmo. In the past five years, the guys have gone from DJing house parties to releasing records from a top-notch roster, including RL GRIME, Groundislava, D33J, Nick Melons and Earnest Blount. As a collective, this crew is creating major buzz — and they're all younger than 25. While WeDidIt deals primarily in the underground, their sounds oscillate between sexed-out, deconstructed beats and the brand of nasty trap that's been in vogue recently. "We have always been doing what feels right to us and then dealing with the aftermath," Meledandri says of the WeDidIt business plan. The aftermath so far? Success. wediditcollective.com. —Katie Bain
