3LAU has only been on our radar for the last two years, and doesn't have a large catalog of officially released material, but he is a shining example of not needing a huge stack of labels and remix work behind you to make an impact. He regularly tops six figures with his SoundCloud uploads, and his showcasing his brand of big room house that he calls "dance floor filth." He has a James Egbert remix to his credit, and we're sure that he'll be either killing your iPod or local venue in the very near future.

For our latest edition of Snapshots, Andrew Rauner shadowed 3LAU during a recent trip to New York City, where he had two gigs in the same night. He's definitely a character, which you will see in these pictures and with his captions. Enjoy this batch of Snapshots.
