// BIO: NERD RAGE //
Nerd Rage's music, hand-in-hand with his stage presence, is loud, aggressive, and right in your face. Playing everything from Moombahton and Dubstep to Drum and Bass in action-packed sets, Nerd Rage has gained quite a following in the electronic dance music scene.
Starting his music production career in 2010, Nerd Rage has quickly risen to the top of the heap beginning with his first single, "Real Life," hitting top 10 on the Beatport charts. One of the tracks was featured at number one on Beatport's "Top 10 Must Hear Dubstep Tracks."
His followup EP, “Elbows of Fury,” featuring collaborations with Sluggo & Terrabad, has topped out at #2 on the beatport charts. Korn Frontman Jonathan Davis also listed the track, “Dark Crystal,” as one of his top 5 favorite EDM songs for Revolver Magazine.
His tunes can now be heard on dancefloors and radio around the world, with top DJs such Evol Intent, Pendulum, Excision, Funtcase, Datsik, Downlink, SKisM, Bare, and Dieselboy playing his musical creations.
// BIO: MANTIS //
Taylor Scott and Paul Ollinger, known as Mantis, are a relentless duo. Having begun their musical careers with metal & deathcore, the transition to heavy bass music was not so much a step down in intensity, but a slide into a world with spectacular tools to mix dense layers of music in new ways, and deploy it with force. Mantis was formed in early 2011 to test the boundaries of metal-influenced production, and plunge the result into a wash of haunting atmospheres. Mantis wants to provide “music to make you feel like you’re somewhere else, and you’ve never been more stoked to be there.”
With that target in sight, 2011 was a smashing first year; the momentum began in Atlanta, and overflowed with releases on labels such as Play Me, Heavy Artillery, BroTown Records, & Abducted Records. A standard was set with 2011's "All Worlds", their first EP, breaking the top 10 on Beatport's Dubstep releases, and held with 2012's "Futures" scoring #5 on Beatport's overall chart. The support of tastemakers such as Liquid Stranger, Downlink, Figure, Cyberoptics, Diesel, Genetix, Persist, & Sluggo, points to an accomplishment of musical influence on an international scale, and the potential for much more.
A history in Atlanta's metal scene, playing in acts such as WLTP and Attila, provides Mantis' cornerstone of fierce stage skills. Having become known across the USA for throwing down an aggressive live show with unmatched energy and only the heaviest bass music, Mantis' reputation stands as being one of the gnarliest new production teams in the scene.
With packed crowds at hand, and Beatport charts at their feet, only one goal remains- to raise the awareness of metal-influenced bass music... oh, and world domination.
