About KANDY

• In 2016, he delivered a bouncy dance-pop remix of Selena Gomez’s “Hands to Myself.”
• Diplo helped break KANDY to the masses via his Mad Decent label, releasing the singles “Feelin’ KNT” and “Like This” in 2018.
• In 2019, KANDY released an effervescent official remix of Katy Perry’s “Harleys in Hawaii.”
• Apple Music selected KANDY for a special DJ mix celebrating Pride Month in 2019.
