DARTH & VADER   Darth & Vader is one of the most notorious electro house projects from Brazil. With influences of complextro, dirty electro, dubstep, rock and progressive, it was created as a duo in 2009, being ruled just by Hugo since the beginning of 2012.   Born in 1988 in Rio de Janeiro and having musical experiences since the age of nine, when began playing the guitar, Hugo Castellan has always been a rock'n'roll lover and had many bands of the style through his adolescence. 2007 was the year when he first heard and also fell in love with the electronic music, which made him study musical production and create his project called Harmonika. Two years later and wishing to produce and explore new sounds, came the idea of releasing Darth & Vader, with heavier and more complex basslines.


The project's second release, Dataloss's Freefire remix, reached the third position on Beatport Top 10 Electro House contest, having competed against big names like Afrojack and Deadmau5, and was crucial for the recognition of Darth & Vader. Its other highlights are the remix for the Dj Maxsie & Alex Speaker's Hey Yo track, used in Armin Van Buuren and Skrillex's presentations, and the Return of the Jedi original mix, also played by DJ Moby.


With huge recognition from north to south of Brazil, Darth & Vader has already played in the biggest clubs and festivals of its home country. The project has also been in the Unites Stated and Mexico, where was greatly received, and has tours scheduled again in the United States, Australia and New Zealand on the year of 2012.


Hugo is a professional totally focused on improving his productions, aiming his music's evolution and perfection. The result of the mixture between all that discipline and talent are imposing tracks and presentations, that make themselves unforgettable wherever the project goes and are definitely worth being heard and seen. Don't miss it!


BAD ROBOTZ   Alabama natives Wes Kane & Daniel Steel have been hard at work defining their own blend of Bass Music as the group Bad Robotz! This mix genre, open format, group is nothing but PURE FUN & HIGH ENERGY EXCITEMENT! They have rocked the southeast playing in 8 states and almost 2 dozen cities. Playing alongside underground legends and Grammy award winning artists! Just a few of the 100s of headlining a  rtist they've shared the stage with are: Benny Benassi, The Crystal Method, DJ Dan, Starkillers, Klever, Shortee, Evol Intent, Dirtyphonics, Icey, DJ Lord of Public Enemy, 12th Planet, Dada Life, AK1200, Irene, Freaky Flow, Le castle Vania, Dara, Baby Anne, Micro, Charles Feelgood, Breakfastaz, Mayhem, Computer Club, and tons more. Bad Robotz! have been hard at work in the studio. Collaborating with some of the HOTTEST artists in the South, the new EP soon to be released is sure to turn some heads!   Also be on the look out for the up and coming side projects: Wesley Snaps // New Wobble Order.
