About Symphony Crack Orchestra
Trained from an early age in strings and percussion and having a mastery of music theory, Ashanti Floyd is considered a "melodic, rhythmic genius". While being a five time Grammy nominated violinist, composer, producer & multi-instrumentalist of 30 instruments, Ashanti is also part time violinist for double platinum recording artist Lupe Fiasco.
In 2009, after departing ways with Shady/Interscope recording artist Yelawolf, Ashanti and guitarist Matt Barrett formed The Symphony Crack Orchestra to create a different, innovative style of music. The Mad Violinist (Ashanti Floyd) and the Symphony Crack Orchestra are an accomplished band with a strong international following with unique style attracting broad audiences through Pop, Rock, Hip Hop, R&B, Jazz and Alternative Music.
The group has a strong musical pedigree including, Matt Barrett on guitar, Chris Morgan on keys, Mike Belluso playing Bass, Casey Crogan on Drums, Lance Powlis with the Horns, and Adrian Crutchfield on the Saxophone.
The Mad Violinist & Symphony Crack Orchestra are thrilled to announce the release of their sophomore album, Fiend, which is now available on iTunes and Amazon MP3. Only 24 hours after releasing the album to the world, Fiend climbed from Top 200 to Top 10 on iTunes. A record that many artists only dream about when releasing new music to their fans. Symphony Crack’s first album, Addiction set new standards in music within their category by successfully meshing different musical styles and theory into single tracks on a very dynamic record. Seeing the early success of Fiend leaves fans highly anticipating the release of their third album.K
A picture of Generation Y, Natasha Fox consumes and creates art in multiple mediums and embraces
belonging to a generation whose keywords are “sharing” and “participation.” She began to DJ in 2011 while remaining committed to her 5-year career in videogame and technology design.
Natasha rapidly caught attentive crowds with a penchant for balancing melodic bass music with evocative
drops, fluidly presenting elements of dubstep, garage, electro house, hip-hop, electronica, and trending bass music for an experience that showcases her keen music sensibilities and is by turns haunting and energetic.
Having supported a richly eclectic collection of major artists, Natasha Fox has been billed under Liquid
Stranger, Bare, Sluggo, Cookie Monsta, Kilo Ali, SBTRKT, Björk, Gus Gus, Yoko Ono, Tuneyards, Mantis,
Mayhem, Heroes & Villains, and MUST DIE! Natasha is the official DJ for Atlanta party-rap trio Mighty High Coup and appears in the music video for their new collaboration with Caspa, “On It.” Earlier this year she was listed by revolvermag.com as one of “10 Hottest Chicks in Dubstep.”
Currently Natasha designs for the social music application Songster, which allows users to easily make
remixes and mashups from their browser.

It all started at midnight on New Years Eve of 1992 in a hole in the wall skating rink. Damien Tucker aka DaddyDough (formerly Doughboy) had been a silent lover of electronic based music for years. When the clock struck 12 his life was changed forever. DaddyDough began his DJ career with old classics, hip hop, and booty shaking tunes. By 1996 Dough had landed regular residencies at several of the hottest electronic clubs in Atlanta. Over the next few years he began to build a strong following, and was playing at several events each week and traveling to some of the hottest venues in the Southeast. Over the last 20 years DaddyDough has played some of the biggest and most talked about venues and events in and around the Atlanta area. A master behind the decks, his smoothness when mixing from tune to tune is rivaled by few in today's scene. Always striving to drop his signature style of Drum and Bass, DaddyDough has remained one of the biggest hidden talents in the Atlanta EDM scene. With the ability to mix any style of dance music and even play track out in the club that even he has never heard sets DaddyDough a step above the nearest competition. DaddyDough is the real deal when he steps behind the decks and not many can say otherwise. Currently teamed up with his longtime partner, DJ Quirk, DaddyDough has been making strides to return to the world of production. Under the name EchoLabSoundSystem, Quirk and Dough have been ripping it up in the house realm, while DaddyDough stays true to his roots on solo events, bringing the best in Drum and Bass and his new guilty pleasure, Dubstep. DaddyDough is sure to educate the masses on how it was done back in the day and influence some of the up and coming artists and DJ's on how a true professional works behind the decks to always keep the dance floor moving each time he plays. Aside from his residency and regular Atlanta bookings, you can also always catch DaddyDough each and every Wednesday night from 9pm-12am EST on his internet radio show which has featured some of the biggest local talent from the Atlanta area and beyond.
