Dillon Francis
Dillon Francis
Dillon Francis' recent #1 EP This Mixtape is Fire (his first time snaring the top spot of the Billboard Dance/Electronic chart), signals new heights climbed and conquered for the talented artist/producer/DJ. The lively follow-up to his acclaimed 2014 full length album debut, Money Sucks, Friends Rule, has been hailed as a star-studded offering (High-profile guests include Calvin Harris on "What's Your Name," Skrillex on "Bun Up the Dance," Chromeo on "Lies," as well as appearances by Bro Safari, Kygo, James Hersey, and others) marking an inspired return to Francis' Moombahton roots. But the affable Dillon says he's always been passionate about keeping his influences within reach. "I don't think I ever left Moombahton; if you listen to the album (Money Sucks, Friends Rule), you can hear it in places there. For this EP, I went through a bunch of old records - like what Munchi was doing and I was doing - and maybe reincarnated a bit the sound from around 'Bootleg Fireworks' (Burning Up, his 2012 offering.) But I'm always trying to mix it up. I'm never going to forget my roots just like I would never do an entire album that was straight Moombahton. This was just a fun record to make. Anyone who follows my career knows I thrive on surprises."
Bassnectar is one of the longest standing and most respected artists in American electronic dance music, often referred to simply as the EDM scene. He is the original long hair behind the tables, having been in the game well before most of his contemporaries and amassing an epic fan base with over 250k tickets sold to his solo shows alone in 2011. His art brazenly oversteps the bounds of contemporary EDM, pulling from a dynamic array of source material and attracting lovers of all genres, from dubstep to metal, punk rock, hip hop, and all forms of EDM (drum & bass, trip hop, etc.) and beyond. His art is more than just an auditory experience; it serves to evoke all human senses with live shows that feature unparalleled light shows and awe-inspiring visual queues. Bassnectar intends to not only foster its own community of loyal Bass Heads, but also contribute to the global community at large through charity and social change.
Bassnectar is particularly infamous for incomparably raucous live shows that feature state of the art lightshows and enough bass to work crowds into palpable frenzies. His performances are so successful and sought out that in 2011 he made the top 3 hard ticket sales along with fellow EDM artists Deadmau5 and Tiesto. The Bassnectar tour, which travels with its own custom sound rig, has headlined stops at some of the most noted venues and festivals in the country and always attracts massive sold-out crowds, some numbering over 10,000 for non-festival solo show dates. In addition to celebrated sets at Coachella, Lollapalooza, ACL, Bonnaroo, and Ultra Music Festival, Ashton has inaugurated his own daylong extravaganza for EDM lovers of all ages. Dubbed the Bass Center, this sonic celebration has completely sold out in its first two years, 2010 and 2011, and has featured the likes of Brother Ali, Glitch Mob, Wolfgang Gartner, That 1 Guy and Dan Deacon and will feature electro house superstar A-Trak in 2012.

In 1997 he founded the label Black Hole Recordings with Arny Bink, where he released the Magik and In Search of Sunrise CD series. In 1999 and 2000 he collaborated with Ferry Corsten to create Gouryella. In 2001 he released his first solo album In My Memory which gave him several major hits that launched his career as well as his remix of Delerium's "Silence" featuring Sarah McLachlan which exposed him to more mainstream audiences. As his popularity rose in the early 2000s he became the first DJ to perform to a large crowd without any other DJs or opening acts. He was crowned the "World's No.1 DJ" 3 consecutive times by DJ Magazine from 2002 through 2004.
If you don't know Datsik by now, you best be learning. Datsik has been taking the dubstep scene by storm, blowing up dance floors around the globe with his original style of hip-hop future-tech bangers. In 2009 alone, Datsik had over 7 number one releases on Beatport, and vinyl sales through the roof on many other sites such as Chemical Records, Red-Eye and Juno. Aside from that, he has also done remixes for some of the biggest names in the scene such as the Crystal Method, Freestylers, Bassnectar, Noisia, Diplo, the Wu-tang Clan, and Apex from the critically acclaimed Lifted Music label; not to mention countless collaborations with some of the hottest producers in the scene. With multiple anthems under his belt, countless plays from some of the biggest DJ's, and an endless perseverance to reach that next step, it is safe to say that Datsik has proven himself to be one of the best dubstep artists around… and he is here to stay.
Rarely have we seen someone rise through the ranks as quickly as Boris Daenen, a.k.a Netsky. Leading a wave of new skool Drum n Bass talent from Europe with his blend of uplifting, melancholic melodies and heavy dance floor bass & beats, Netsky's popularity is ever on the rise. A celebrity in his home country of Belgium, Boris has received numerous awards and accolades and continues to impress audiences across the world.
Netsky signed to Hospital Records in late 2009; his first release was the iconic "Memory Lane" (as featured on "Sick Music 2″ in 2010) and this was swiftly followed up by his chart topping debut album — 'Netsky' — in May of the same year. Following unanimous praise and hype from all corners of the globe, the album plunged Netsky firmly into the limelight, where he has remained ever since, delivering a potent mix of dance floor anthems, vocal led classics and the clean cut new jungle sound which has become his trademark.
In the meantime Netsky nurtured his profile as a remixer with smash remixes of some huge club anthems including Pendulum 'Witchcraft', Swedish House Mafia 'One' and Rusko 'Everyday', which has now garnered over 17 million views on YouTube. As well as his prolific production work, Netsky maintains a hectic DJ schedule, performing across the globe at sold out shows from Ultra Festival in Miami to the Balearic island of Ibiza and beyond.
In April 2012, Boris unveiled the extremely impressive Netsky LIVE! show at the iconic Brixton Academy in London. Netsky LIVE! features Netsky taking to the stage supported by a full live band and exciting production and has received critical acclaim, completing sold out tours of the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Europe. His highly anticipated sophomore album '2' landed late in June 2012 and immediately hit the UK Top 30 and No. 1 in the official Belgium charts, quickly going on to achieve platinum status shortly after release.
2013 saw Netsky LIVE! rise to even greater heights, playing a sold-out stadium show at Belgium's celebrated Lotto Arena in April and storming performances at Glastonbury, Pinkpop, Rock Werchter and V Festival amongst a host of others. Netsky saw out the year with the main support slot on the Chase & Status UK Arena Tour, which saw him perform throughout the UK for a month finishing with a landmark show at London's O2 Arena.
The beginning of 2014 sees Netsky in the studio, busy finishing his third album due for release later this year as well as preparing for a busy summer of touring ahead including heading down under in March for Future Music Festival in Australia, followed by performances at Ultra Festival, Coachella, Tomorrowland and headline slots on the dance stage at Reading and Leeds Festival, SW4 and NASS to name a few. Netsky LIVE! has also received a nomination for 'Best Live Act' at the AIM Awards in Belgium. One thing's for sure, 2014 is looking to be a groundbreaking year of epic proportions for Belgium's premium DJ export.
12th Planet
12th Planet
12th Planet is the electronic music pioneer whose off-axis beats and subsonic frequencies orbit on the forefront of global bass culture. Recently named "Los Angeles dubstep god" by Rolling Stone, 12th Planet AKA John Dadzie and his influential label SMOG Records are widely credited for bringing the British movement stateside, and continue to be a crucial force in the evolution of electronic music. 12th Planet's DJ sets now include a myriad of styles that reflect the current, diverse landscape of EDM music and continue to display his role as an essential tastemaker in the dance music world.

Since 2006, 12th Planet has also led what's become one of the most thriving underground movements in electronic music, with MTV calling the crew a "pioneering incubator of bass music in America." The SMOG crew, with 12th Planet at the helm, continues to produce top quality events in Los Angeles and beyond, always pushing forward as an internationally recognized leader in U.S. bass music. However, John Dadzie's role has extended beyond just bass music to encompass the whole of EDM, including what he recently described to OC Weekly as "transition music," — a sound that incorporates diverse styles and BPMs. His DJ set is no longer classifiable by genre but best dubbed "a trip to the 12th Planet and back."
Boombox Cartel
Mexico-born artists Americo Garcia and Jorge Medina have built a name for themselves as a "must watch", highly talented, up-and-coming duo. Having an incredibly diverse musical background, Boombox Cartel combines their love and knowledge of music with an innovative and unique sound. The duo originally met while attending music school in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Their musical chemistry was instantly apparent and after a few self-releases, Boombox Cartel their star power began shining through a swift rise to the top of the Minneapolis DJ scene.

Feeling the call of a warmer climate and larger scene, the duo eventually made the move to Los Angeles where their rise as an international power-house really began to take hold. In quick succession Boombox Cartel released multiple massive singles that were quickly given full rotation by the biggest names in dance music. Their hugely dynamic track, B2U, became one of the songs of the summer 2015, receiving support from everyone from Diplo and Skrillex to Martin Garrix.

With multiple massive releases on the way, non-stop touring and support from top labels, 2015 will close with a bang for this quickly rising duo. Be on the lookout for releases on Mad Decent, a collab with Bro Safari and so much more.
Breathe Carolina
Breathe Carolina
People have a tendency to be skeptical of something unfamiliar or new especially when it reeks of success. Such is the fate for new kids on the block Breathe Carolina. The trio was able to turn heads with their dance debut "Anywhere But Home" (Aramada / Zouk) which crept along the Beatport Progressive House charts until it was slotted in the #1 position & #5 Overall. As well as claiming the "highest selling single" position on Armada's ZOUK imprint.

Breathe Carolina followed the success in releasing "Hero (Satellite)" (Oxygen / Spinnin) with a massive club banger reaching #1 on Beatport's Progressive House chart and #7 Overall. With the group having a laundry list of confirmed tracks coming out on Spinnin, Armada, and Wall this fall moving into 2016 – Breathe Carolina are showing they have what it takes to rise to the top.
From a young age, Coone has been mesmerized by music in all its different shapes and forms.

The creation of his successful label Dirty Workz was a huge step in this young man's carreer, allowing him to take his music beyond even his own expectations and also giving new talents within the Hard Dance scene a respectable platform to launch new and exciting sounds into the scene.
By the age of 24, Coone was able to lay down an almost impossible feat; completely selling out one of Belgium's largest venues with over 10.000 Hard Dance fans for an exclusive event - Coone & the Gang. The event has certainly become one of Coone's most memorable moments, a clear pillar in his life which marked the beginning of big things to come and completely opened the Hard Dance scene in Belgium, boosted by national tv and media coverage.
As collaborations with some of Hardstyle's biggest names rolled in, Coone was able to impress the world with his unique sound within Hardstyle, imprinting a distinct signature sound into his
productions. His experience has lead him towards a new
"Challenge"; to create an album in 30 days including collaborations with some of the Hard Dance scene's superstars. The album was met with great support in the scene, catapulting Coone to new heights.
Coone's success within Europe has opened up many doors for him as his eyes are fixed on the horizon, towards the international Hardstyle scene in countries such as Australia and the United States, with a World Tour already in the making.
Without a doubt, Coone lives and breathes Hardstyle. His passion shared by thousands of like-minded souls all over the world, each speaking a universal language. Music. A binding force uniting us all.

Crizzly is crunk. Straight up. Remember the mid-2000's, when everyone on MTV had platinum grills and was rollin' on 22's, sippin' syzzurp from diamond-encrusted pimp cups? Add about a thousand screaming decibels of bass blasts and some Dirty South swag and you've got Chris Lee Marshall.
Famed for the global smash 'Sandstorm', Darude is recognised by many as one of the most influential artists to emerge from the dance scene in the past decade. With a DJ style that is a mixture of progressive and uplifting trance, fused with elements of tech, breaks and house, Darude's music delivers a dynamic energy that gets any dancefloor moving.

With over 10 years heavily touring North and South America, as well as leading shows in Asia and Australasia.

His name has also appeared in numerous public-voted polls with previous entries in Top 100 DJs Poll and Americas Favourite DJ.

More recently he has been working on completing his 4th artist album with a view to a release date in 2015. This new project will see Darude deliver an album of both song-led and club focused records, including the emotive and trancey sounds he's become so synonymous with. The first single from the album will be 'Beautiful Alien' out April 10th on Warner Music.

Having solidified himself as DJ for the people, continually wowed club crowds around the world and released some of the biggest dance anthems ever produced, it is a testament to his popularity that he remains one of the scenes most in demand artists.
Ganja White Night
Ganja White Night is an electronic music band whose early influences are found at the roots of "Bass-Music". During the past decade, the duo traveled many countries in Europe and beyond. The band takes a new creative direction tinted with hip-hop and more generally hybrid electronic music after the release of their fourth album "Addiction" in 2014.

They decided to break the fetters that connected them almost exclusively to "Dubstep" and started using other forms of expression. It is therefore with their new album "Hybrid Distillery" that the group now has to make an impression by imposing its style in other genres of electronic music. This fifth album is not only another acoustic chapter, it is also about graphics. The draftsman/graffiti artist/director "Ebola - Delit2fuite" brings a whole new visual world mixed with, just like Ganja White Night, artistic originality and singularity never achieved until now.
Gent & Jawns
After developing respectable solo careers as DJs and producers, long-time friends Billy the Gent and Long Jawns officially banded together as Gent & Jawns becoming an unstoppable force in the world of club music. The release of their now classic Moombahton anthem "Vibrate" catapulted them to the top of everyone's list of producers to work with and landed them remixes for Datsik, Bare, and Muffler, as well as collaborations with Nadastrom, Torro Torro and JWLS.

In early 2012 they worked with mega-producer Diplo on his Express Yourself EP, which topped the iTunes charts as the number one electronic album. They followed up with an absolutely stunning remix of the title track "Express Yourself," which saw repeated plays by many of the top DJs in the world. Shortly after, they released "Holler," their first official EP on Mad Decent's Jeffrees label. Jeffrees went on to earn the iTunes Label of the Year honors. The duo ended the year proper when they released "TURNUP", a party-inducing track that's being called the biggest trap song of 2012. In two weeks the track saw 80,000 plays and held position as the top electronic song on SoundCloud.

While known for their world-class production, Gent & Jawns' secret weapon is their ability to perform live. Long Jawns is a legend in his hometown of Richmond, VA, where he is widely known for throwing the biggest and best parties the city has seen in years. Billy The Gent began DJing with support from his friend Dave Nada (Nadastrom, creator of Moombahton) in Washington, DC and quickly became a staple at the famous U-Street Music Hall. Together, Gent & Jawns have gone on to share the stage with top notch acts like Diplo, Dillon Francis, Nadastrom, Caspa, Craze, Die Antwoord, and more.
Liquid Stranger
Liquid Stranger
Rather than touting the typical electronic dance music trappings of hyper excess and ego, he chooses to slip back into the shadows, allowing his music to do all the talking and listeners to do a whole lot of wondering. As a result, that music has sent shockwaves throughout the entire genre. Over the course of six full length albums and a myriad of single releases, he's yielded worldwide hits as diverse as "Ripple", which claimed #1 on Beatport's Download Chart, and "Bombaclaad Star", which reigned supreme as the hub's #1 reggae track of 2011. "Shake My Ass" dominated the drum 'n' bass chart at #1, while his third album Private Riot has become a dubstep classic in its own right, solidifying him as a trailblazer.

However, he's bringing two worlds together into one on his forthcoming seventh album, The Renegade Crusade. Dubstep sorcery and Rastafarian grooves collide and cascade within a genre the dance floor has never seen before. The age of The Renegade begins now.

About this alchemical concoction on his forthcoming 2013 effort, he reveals, "It's my attempt to put everything I've done in my musical career into some type of synthesis. It can be hard and intense, but it can also be beautiful and trippy. This symbiosis is natural. As humans we all have different emotions. The music reflects those emotions. I'm looking to combine all of those catalytic experiences."

In a sense, the artist has been on this path since he was merely four years old. Recalling his earliest musical memory growing up in Sweden, he'd crawl to the family piano and play for his parents. A few years later, his dad bought him his first synthesizer, and an entirely new world opened up. After years of successful studio work post high school, Liquid Stranger was formally born in 2003. His genre fusion began to enchant the entire scene.

He didn't simply transplant himself from Europe to Scottsdale, AZ for music though. There are many facets to the enigma he's built. In between touring and making music, he became a yoga instructor, spending four years in an Ashram. He also continued to evolve in martial arts, a passion he's held since the age of six. His studies extended to Native American medicine, immersing himself in Sun Dance ceremonies and excursions.

"I've always been a seeker," admits Liquid Stranger. "If I do something, I'm going to try to master it. I've always been interested in pursuits that mirror a bottomless well. They're so mething you can never really grasp. As a musician, I always try to have as little control over the creative as possible. The less my ego and control issues get in the way, the better the music is that I make. On good days, I'm more of a channel than the brain behind it. Inspiration is such an untamed, crazy, and wild beast."

That's also the best way to describe his live show. He's won over audiences at Electric Daisy Carnival, Voov Experience, Boom Festival, Roskilde and more. He's also set to mount a full scale headline tour with the release of The Renegade Crusade.

In many ways, the entire ethos can be traced back to his very moniker. He goes on, "The reality is twofold. Liquid represents something fluid and formless that can be adapted to any given container. In other words, I can go seamlessly between any genre, tempo, emotion, or whatever I want. You never know what I'm going to do next."

The questions will only continue to percolate around Liquid Stranger, but so will the unforgettable and undeniable music.
Lost Kings
Robert Gainley and Dr. No, knew of each other for a while, but had never really talked about working together. It took a good amount of whiskey before they decided they wanted to see what would happen if they collaborated on a remix. The following week they sat down, put in some work, and were amazed by the results. Truly impressed by what they just created, they decided to join forces, because what's better than one handsome man who's prone to fast and saucy behavior? Two handsome men that are prone to fast and saucy behavior. This duo has gained a lot of steam in a short amount of time and have already been supported by some of the bigger players in the game.

This is only the beginning of what should be an exciting path for this duo. These two young men are often compared to Karl Malone and Jon Stockton, they always deliver and they like to wear high shorts.

Mt. Eden
Mt. Eden
For many, Mt. Eden's seminal 2009 release "Sierra Leone" was pivotal in their introduction to a new wave of electronic music, where loud, melodic bass reigned supreme, and swiftly collided with popular music on an array of viral remixes. Six years on, having released two well-received EPs and a generous fistful of popular singles and remixes, the iconic duo's underground success has evolved into an authentic global notoriety rarely matched in the EDM community. And with the looming release of their highly anticipated No Mans Land EP, Jesse Cooper and Harley Rayner are poised to take their brand of music to new pinnacles in 2015.
In 2012, the duo strategically relocated from the quaint, peaceful suburbs of Auckland, New Zealand, to the bustling metropolis of New York City. The move proved to be a wise one for the band, who locked themselves away in a small studio in Brooklyn to reinvent their sound and conjure up a plan for their long awaited comeback. In late 2012, having recorded and developed a new body of original work, Mt. Eden signed a multi-album deal with independent dance music giant Ultra Records - where they joined an impressive roster of well established artists such as Deadmau5, Kaskade and Steve Aoki.

In New York, having been taken under Ultra's wing, Mt. Eden went from strength to strength, working and preforming with some of the industry's finest producers, composers and vocalists. In June 2013 they released their Walking On Air EP to critical acclaim and the subsequent singles culminated in their selection for MTV Iggy's Artist to watch series - a televised music video performance at Manhattan's Webster Hall - at which they performed their singles live with a strings quintet. Following the release, the duo embarked on an impressive touring schedule throughout 2013 - 2014 which, to the delight of their fans, saw them returning once again to headline the biggest festivals and clubs in opposite corners of the globe. Whilst on the road the pair continued to write and develop their sound, developing a buzz for their next major release as they wowed unsuspecting audiences with sets stacked with unreleased material.

Now, in 2015, having already unleashed the first single "Distance Kills", the duo is gearing up for their next major release - the highly anticipated No Mans Land EP. After a brief touring hiatus at the end of 2014, and having been recently picked up by The Windish Agency for North America, the duo is ready to stake their claim on 2015 as the year of Mt. Eden.

Dutch born DJ & Producer, Quintino was steadily becoming one of Europe's leading DJs when suddenly an "EPIC" track was released. Early 2012, the club banger he produced together with Sandro Silva became EDM's leading club anthem, and even now, 18 months later, still is featured in many sets around the world.

Quintino started at the age of 15, and under the wings of Laidback Luke and later Afrojack, he learned the ropes and became one of the continents most booked DJs. But the release of EPIC changed a lot, and after featuring on both Afrojack's Jacked tour in late 2012, as well as TIESTO's College Invasion Tour early 2013, North America has followed suit. Quintino is a hot ticket now in both the US & Canada and was quick to get his own residency at the brand new Hakassan Night club in Las Vegas.
Space Jesus
Space Jesus
Space Jesus is the feeling you get when you travel through a wormhole in a fresh pair of Jordans. Jasha Tull was born in New Jersey and raised on hip hop. With his alarm set to NYC's Hot 97 throughout elementary school, Jasha started making beats at a young age, and created Space Jesus as a vessel to express his personal experiences through music. With a focus on alien basslines, gangster beats, and future feels, the Spaceman imprints his signature sound onto each genre he graces. After building a reputation for his dynamic live performances, and with appearances at Tomorrowworld, Shambhala, Mysteryland, and beyond under his belt, Space Jesus continues to explore the auditory universe in search of lower frequencies.

Gammer (real name Matt Lee) is a UK hardcore and hard dance producer and DJ.

Gammer made his first appearance in the Hardcore scene during 2002 and since he has gone on to be a very successful and prolific producer, being best known for his extensive discography on the revamped Essential Platinum label. A large proportion of his tracks on the label are collaborations with the label's founder Dougal, though he has also had solo releases on his own label, Muffin Music. He has appeared with other artists such as Hixxy, and Darren Styles. Gammer is considered one of the leading artists in UK hardcore. Aside from his vinyl and digital download releases, his music appears on many albums, including the highly successful Bonkers series.

In April 2007, Gammer started his own label, Muffin Music, and released a promotional mix for it. In 2008, 2009 and now 2010, Gammer was named Hardcore DJ of the year, a major honour won previously by Darren Styles. In 2010 Gammer and Dougal won best Hardcore producers. It is also widely believed[weasel words] that Gammer produces for Baked Potato Records, where he releases singles under the name "Anon".[citation needed]

Gammer originally began his producing career in Hardcore before moving into Hard Dance. He has produced many Hard Dance tracks under 'Matt Lee'. One track in particular ("Go") caught the attention of Hard Dance DJ Andy Whitby and, as a result, Gammer was signed to Whitby's AWsum label.
Grum's debut album, Heartbeats, was released in May 2010. A confident debut record, it was compared to Daft Punk's Discovery and MYLO's 'Destroy Rock & Roll.'

Years later, her journey into dance music was revived after moving to Los Angeles, where she built a home studio and literally worked day-and-night for two years to build her producing catalogue and perfect her craft.

She was Pharrell Williams' touring DJ in 2013. Vibe Magazine voted her one of the Top DJ's to Watch in 2014. By 2015, Thump begged the question if she was the answer to EDM's darth of female DJs?

She has shared stages around with the world with acts such as, Skrillex, Calvin Harris, Tommy Trash, Nervo, Cash Cash, Chris Lake, Hardwell, David Guetta, Otto Knows, Snoop Dogg, Rihanna, and A-trak.

In 2015, Jack began her own label imprint Power and Light Records with its first two single releases garnering over 4 million plays. Her first official remix was released through Interscope for X Ambassadors single "Unsteady". 2016 shows no signs of slowing down with incredible collaborations, worldwide touring, and groundbreaking releases already in place.

In a mere two years, Steve James has emerged from musical obscurity with a glimmer of potential to now stand as one of the hottest established and in-demand producers in the scene. From small town beginnings in Johnstown, PA, Steve's emphasis on spreading happiness through memorable emotive music has placed him as a pinnacle example of the modern American Dream.
