****KRADDY**** (Formerly of The Glitch Mob, Los Angeles)
The Los Angeles-based electronic-music don known as KRADDY has always brought the undiluted sound of the underground to new audiences. As a founding member of the infamous Glitch Mob, Kraddy and his GM peers essentially coined the term “glitch-hop” that has now become ubiquitous throughout the dance music circles. The man has moved crowds everywhere from Red Rocks Ampitheatre (in Colorado) to LA’s famed Low End Theory club opposite music icon Flying Lotus. From his breakthrough hit “Android Porn” to the innovative bangers comprising his latest e.p. Labyrinth (Alpha Pup), Kraddy continues to hybridize hip-hop, dubstep and dancehall with face-melting panache and rock and roll bravado. His newly released Labryinth EP is his most heartfelt release to date—overflowing with grandiose symphonics, soulful emotion, and analog grunge.
****GRAMATIK**** (Pretty Lights Music, Slovenia)

With over 80,000 tracks sold on the influential electronic music site Beatport.com in the past 2 years, topping all kinds of genre charts, Slovenia’s GRAMATIK has matured from a curious kid attracted by soundscapes, to a world-class producer. His genre-bending style mashing hip hop beats with electronica melodies goes far beyond the studio---his live performances, accompanied by a live bassist improvising off his tracks, are blurring the lines even further of what can be classified as either as DJ’ing or playing live. Now a member of superstar Pretty Light’s record label and touring alongside the glitch-hop god himself, Gramatik’s profile is rising very quickly and will be making appearances at major music festivals like Lollapollooza, Lightning In A Bottle, and Nocturnal Wonderland this summer.
Certainly one of the most buzzed about young acts in bass music is Detroit’s GRiZ. The 21-year old producer has been stirring up a storm through via his profoundly engaging remixes and originals like “Where Is The Love”, “Ill Type Moves”, “Rock N Roll”, and his rework of Aerosmith’s “Dream On”. From funky rhythms to jazzy melodic embellishment, GRiZ effortlessly incorporates his instrumental zeal for saxophone with his lifelong dedication to soulful, lazer-infused bass music. For fans of Pretty Lights + Big Gigantic, we trust you will fall in love with the GRiZ sound!!
