We are very proud to present our full line up!
❤ ❣ SKisM ❣ ❤
Since blasting onto the Dubstep scene in 2009, SKisM has gone from strength to strength and has established himself as a major player in the global bass music scene.
Known amongst his peers as a ‘Dj’s Dj’, SKisM’s technical prowess on and energy on his 4 deck setup has gained him notoriety as one of the busiest and most electrifying mixers on the circuit, and having toured the world time and time again, the word is spreading like wildfire.
❤ ❣ Loadstar ❣ ❤
Most of you will have heard the ancient Greek phrase “The whole is more than the sum of its parts,” a sentence which has infiltrated modern literature and speech as much as anything William Shakespeare ever sprinkled into one of his plays. Loadstar is a perfect modern example of that wisdom. Made up of Gavin Harris and Nick Hill, formerly and respectively known to the world of drum & bass as Xample and Lomax, this duo has surpassed the highest expectations in recent years by fusing their individual styles and creating a pioneering sound that imbues club dance floors, iPods and huge festival arenas with incredible energy and impeccable musical precision.
❤ ❣ Organ Donors ❣ ❤
The Organ Donors are an anomaly in the modern dance music scene, spanning multiple genres and setting musical standards for well over a decade. Embodying the very nature of what is now known as EDM. Their solo productions, remixes & albums on some of the worlds largest record labels have seen them enter the UK pop charts, gain support from the worlds leading artists, headline some of the planets biggest dance events and help pave the way for this modern, boundary free era of dance music.
❤ ❣ Darren Styles ❣ ❤
Darren has always possessed a passionate craving for music. Much dedication was spent enthusiastically mastering his natural ability on the keyboard engineering it into an undisputed skill whilst developing his own style, ever inspired by dance music. He is a world-renowned DJ, producer, songwriter and singer. He has released numerous albums that hit the top charts in the United Kingdom. Currently, he is one of the biggest names in Hard Dance music. He has won a number of awards during his career including ‘Best DJ’ 2006 and 2007, ‘Best Producer’ 2006 and 2008, ‘Best Hardcore Tune’ 2006, 2008 and 2009. Also receiving ‘Outstanding Contribution to Hardcore’ in 2009. Darren still continues to DJ every week across the UK and worldwide including tours of Australia, America and Europe.
❤ ❣ Far Too Loud ❣ ❤
Far Too Loud, a.k.a. Oli Cash, has gained a reputation for hi-tech, dancefloor-destroying music that makes people throw their hands in the air and go crazy. Think high-energy, aggressive funk, big basslines, crazy edits, intricate production and you’ll know the sound. Since his first release, back in 2005, things have gone ever upward. Winning “Best Single” at the Breakspoll Awards in 2007 was a huge boost early on and later that year the huge FTL anthem “Play It Loud”, which saw a move from breakbeat into big, dirty electro-house grooves, received a massive response and remains a firm crowd-pleaser to this day. Subsequent chart-smashers including “Bring Back Boogie” and “Megaloud”, and remixes for the likes of Lily Allen and The Crystal Method confirmed Far Too Loud's place among the big guns of electro-house.
❤ ❣ Indecent Noise ❣ ❤
Indecent Noise is a producer and engineer hailing from Warsaw in Poland. His sound is completely rapt in energetic and melodic trance sounds which can often use techier sounds to deliver devastating impact. Playing live Indecent Noise fully uses the benefits of technology by using laptop and midi controllers with Ableton Live making his sets special and unique. His fascination of electronic music started at a very young age and at age 7 he was already listening to compilations from Jan Michelle Jarre and Kraftwerk. It was in 2004 he decided to learn how to become a producer himself. We fast forward to the present day and Indecent Noise has now become one of the most consistent and hardest working producers and remixers in today’s modern trance world and was recently voted as the #143 DJ in the world in the 2013 Dj Mag Poll. His skill and ability level have improved enormously since the early days and while most of his most recent work can be found on his own label, his music has also featured on labels such as “Discover”, “Fraction”, “Nu-Depth”, “Unearthed”, “Spinnin” and “Subculture” to name a few.
❤ ❣ Eddie Bitar ❣ ❤
“Putting Paul Van Dyk back where he belongs”
Armin Van Buuren on A State of Trance radio episode 567... In a scene where many sounds have come and gone, Eddie Bitar has pushed through his sound of cutting edge music which has become recognisable in its own right throughout the world. With stunning releases on Paul Van Dyk’s VANDIT arm of powerhouse Armada Music and Indecent Noise’s in-form Mental Asylum Records, Eddie’s catalogue of tracks have found their way into speakers in each boarder of the globe. Voted number 108 in 2012’s Trance Addict poll and number 84 in 2013's Trance Podium poll, success has continued to snowball for this Canadian-Lebanese producer and DJ. Controlling crowds for huge brands such as ‘The Gallery’ at the world famous Ministry of Sound in London, ‘Tranceport’ tours in Argentina, a residency for ‘The Energy Box’ in London, American breakthrough at ‘L.M.D’ in L.A U.S.A and shows across Australia, Eddie has been ticking continent after continent off the world map at the highest stage . Known for hard hitting, dance floor driven music played well into the depths of the early hours, his explosive sounds are continuing to cause palpitations all the way through the scene.
❤ ❣ Orla Feeney ❣ ❤
"She is definately one of the people we have supported for years. She has a major talent in making music, she is the presenter of a great radio show and she DJs very well and I totally believe she has the possibility of rising to the top, big time." - Paul van Dyk
"Orla has the potential to be the first female to really crack the Trance world. She has that extra little bit of charisma that ignites dance floors" - Col Hamilton (Lush!)
"Orla has an infectious dedication for the dance scene. She has energy behind the decks and a real hunger to learn in the studio. I am sure she will keep on this path until she is topping bills for years to come." - John O'Callaghan
❤ ❣ Kristina Sky ❣ ❤
With records out on Armin Van Buuren’s Armada, Paul Van Dyk’s Vandit and U.S. mega-label Ultra, while holding a coveted residency with West Coast power-house promoter Giant at Avalon Hollywood, it’s easy to see why Kristina Sky is one of America’s brightest rising stars. Born and raised in Los Angeles, she’s been DJing to thousands of enthusiastic clubbers since 2002, coast-to-coast in the U.S. and around the world—from China to the Philippines, Ecuador to Guatemala and Canada to Costa Rica. Handpicked to play Armin’s ASOT550 in the Netherlands, Insomniac’s Electric Daisy Carnival and North America’s biggest music festival, Coachella—sharing the stage with legendary acts like Madonna and Daft Punk—Kristina is undoubtedly one of America’s most beloved EDM ambassadors. Her live set recordings, guest mixes and popular radio show, TRANCELATE, generate tremendous support from her ever-growing fanbase—broadcasting worldwide via satellite, FM and the internet.
❤ ❣ Slogun & iOh ❣ ❤
Standing at the forefront of the new generation in Drum & Bass, Slogun & iOh are making serious waves with their upfront, new school sound. Hailing from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, these young Junglist upstarts have used their massive basslines and catchy hooks to quickly establish themselves as two of the top new DnB producers in the game. Releasing their first records on Faust & Shortee's Heavy Artillery Recordings, their original tunes have repeatedly climbed the Beatport singles charts and gained the attention of the global Drum & Bass community. The pair has several major official remixes under their belt for artists such as Manufactured Superstars, Dirtyphonics, Eva Simmons, and many more across genres. In the fall of 2012, they took the grand prize for Insomniac's Discovery Project: Nocturnal Wonderland, earning them a release on Interscope Records and a successful closing timeslot at Nocturnal. Since then, word has spread far and wide about the bass devastation that they bring with them wherever they go. Their music has received DJ support from many major names in the EDM world, including Krewella, Dirtyphonics, Crissy Criss, AK1200, John B, DJ Rap, Random Movement and many more. With no slowing down in sight, Slogun & iOh are set to change what everyone thinks about American Drum & Bass.
❤ ❣ Machete ❣ ❤
MACHETE ignited his musical journey back in 1992 as DJ Rob G,
spinning Hip-Hop at Hollywood afterhours events such as No-Doz, What?, and Caffiend.
The Los Angeles underground rave culture was in it’s infancy and Rob was inspired by the techno-breakbeat music emerging out of England via vinyl records played by DJs Raw, Curious, and Oscar da Grouch.
These frantic bass-heavy beats that evolved from old-school breaks layered with HipHop and Reggae samples were intriguing and propelled him in a new direction.
Rob, encouraged by his peers, changed his professional name to Machete in 1994…
a title meant to evoke the nature of his mixing and cutting skills in relation to this new Jungle music.
As DJ Machete, Rob helped put Junglist Platoon on the map with gigs at nearly every Jungle party in the Greater Los Angeles area.
