Every year we book one of those remarkable acts that ignores all the rules of pop music with infectious glee. The duo Laura Les and Dylan Brady combine their favorite styles (spoiler: just about any style imaginable) into complete aural anarchy. Sure, anyone can genre-hop haphazardly, but 100 gecs can seamlessly cross bubblegum pop with metal or hard-hitting dubstep without sounding as if you switched a radio station. No wonder artists such as Charli XCX, Umru and The Neighbourhood made eager use of the talent and the imagination of these two innovative non-conformists.
