BRING ON THE BEATS
“Bring On The Beats” is a party brand that delivers highly acclaimed and glam Bass music events featuring legendary Dj talent and tomorrow’s rising stars. This regarded and established brand with a bold approach to details puts on numerous, well produced dj, club, pool parties and festival related events stateside. Annually the action culminates with a “people’s favorite,” pool party or VIP event on South Beach during WMC.
The "Bolt to Miami Tour" brings some of the heat of what happens annually for the Winter Music Conference to a city near you as this brand darts across the country pre WMC/Ultra/ Spring Break. Don't miss out!
The Freestylers (London, UK)
After a 15 year career the Freestylers have covered a full 360 degrees in the Bass music genre, having played all the biggest festivals and most talked about nightclubs around the world, even the quintessentially British music show, Top of The Pops. Having achieved the kind of success most artists can only dream of, they’ve not rested on their laurels. Now, after two years in the studio, it’s fair to say Matt Cantor and Aston Harvey are about to launch a veritable assault on the music scene with the release of their new album, aptly titled ‘The Coming Storm.’
Aston and Matt started making tracks together in the mid ‘90’s after discovering a mutual love of hip-hop, electro and beats. They released their first two album ‘We Rock Hard’ and ‘Pressure Point’ on the legendary Breakbeat label Freskanova. ‘Raw as F**k’ and ‘Adventures in Freestyle’ were released on ‘Against The Grain’ and another Breaks power house based out of Brighton, UK. From being voted ‘Best Band’ by Musik Magazine to touring with Lenny Kravitz on his American Woman tour (he asked them himself as he was so impressed with their act), rocking a crowd of 30,000 at Glastonbury Festival 1999 and performing at MTV’s Times Square Millenium Party, playing Big Day Out ‘05– it’s fair to say these guys have had one big adventure so far.
The Freestylers began their career as an Urban Electronic Music Act, and their early tunes ‘B-Boy Stance,’’ ‘Ruffneck’ and ‘Warning’ set the marker. As their music progressed so did their anthems with the seminal tunes ‘Punks’, ‘Boom Blast’, ‘Fasten Your Seat-Belts,’ ‘Painkiller’ and more recently ‘Cracks.’ In addition to their status as underground heroes, they have gained commercial success with their huge global hit ‘Push Up’ and have had their music featured in TV and film, including the hugely successful comedy film Zoolander.
Their ever-eclectic style and renegade approach to production focusing on everything in the bass music spectrum and is once again on show with their fifth studio album ‘The Coming Storm’ released on BlackHole/Rub-A-Duck Recordings June 2013. With the new addition to their production team Chris Bishop from Stereo:Type they’ve ramped up their sound into overdrive. Whether they’re performing as a live band, sound system or DJ set, you know they are gonna rock hard.
Brazen (Miami, FL)
(Bring On The Beats | Ballistic Music)
The buzz on this hard-boiled and ambitious Dj/producer/director’s rise is a result of his perfect storm combination of Work Ethics, Determination & Talent. On the music tip, Brazen holds his own. He's notorious for flexing some serious dance floor intuition when rocking accessible and dynamic crowd-pleasing sets fueled by 808 bass and breaks. 90% of this artist’s Dj sets are comprised of his own productions, remixes & VIP edits.
Brazen calls Miami, Florida home but hails from “the city of champions”, Brockton, Mass; a town famed for churning out spirited pro fighters and college sports titans. Hit tunes from Brazen include “Throwdown” 2004 with Scratch D, “Gangstered” 2008 licensed to Deekline’s Booty Breaks and Oh Snap’s “Hitop Fade”(Bass Remix) 2008.
Brazen is the Executive producer of Bring On The Beats.
Currently, Brazen is lighting up dance floors and bringing down the house longside some of the top names in the genre nationwide. Expect releases on his new imprint 'Ballistic Music' and more heat to come from Brazen in the near future.
// BIO: AJAPAI //
Ajapai is easily one of the sickest dubstep producers on the scene. Hailing from Tokyo, Japan, the music he conjures up is like no other- a constant barrage of unique noises tailored to be a pure assault of the senses right from the get go. His first dubstep release 'What do you hear?' hit #3 on the Beatport charts and put him firmly on the map as a force to be reckoned with. It wasn't long before he joined the growing stable of talent on Rottun Recordings.
He also started up his own label, Ajapai Entertainment, which has numerous successes including a remix of "Incoming" ended up getting #1 on Beatports drum n bass chart. It even went on to secure a Beatport Annual award, which is testament to the fact that this man means business. Ajapai's EP's on Rottun have absolutely floored audiences all over the world and have charted amazingly well, consistently landing in the top 3 on the dubstep charts. His latest release "Before The Sun" with Excision and Downlink hit No.1 on that chart.
Over the last couple of years Ajapai has toured internationally in Europe, Canada, and America. The completely and utter destruction he releases on dance floors can only be understood by witnessing his DJ sets live for yourself. With a style like no other and a commitment to quality, it is guaranteed that the only direction for Ajapai to go is straight up!!!
