Tickets are available at wearegalantis.com.
The duo recently released streams of the EP tracks "Help" and "The Heart That I'm Hearing" which premiered on AV Club and Refinery29. "Help" builds a wistful piano melody into an exhilarating anthem of resiliency. Listen to it here. The pulsating synths and skittering rhythm of "The Heart That I'm Hearing" mirror the song's lyrics about the rush of falling love. The emotive vocal features the custom "Galantis filter" which blends male and female voices. Stream the track here.
Their previous single, "Smile", became a dance club staple and has been championed by their peers including Kaskade, Diplo, Tiesto, Dada Life, Steve Angello, and radio legend Pete Tong, who featured it as an Essential Tune. The "Smile" remix package features an edit of the track by Kaskade, and remixes from Bart B More, Marco V, East and Young, Danny Howard, and Dem Slackers

Get Odesza songs and albums from:
Odesza (stylized as ODESZA) are an American electronic music duo from Seattle consisting of Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight. The group was formed in 2012 shortly before Mills and Knight graduated from Western Washington University.
Their debut album, Summer's Gone, was released in 2012 to much acclaim in the underground electronic music community. Odesza followed Summer's Gone with their first EP, My Friends Never Die, in 2013 and their second studio album, In Return, in 2014. The duo released In Return (Deluxe Edition) on September 18, 2015 via Counter Records, an extended version of the original album plus three live recordings all featuring a horn section, instrumentals, and a new track "Light (featuring Little Dragon)". On December 7th, 2015, ODESZA's "Say My Name (RAC mix)" was nominated for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards.
Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight met during their freshman year at Western Washington University. The two did not share the same educational interests. Knight studied physics and math while Mills studied graphic design. They did not begin collaborating musically until their senior year in 2012. As a child, Knight was classically trained in piano and later learned guitar.
Odesza is the Hungarian spelling for the city of Odessa, Ukraine. The band's name, however is taken from the name of Mills' uncle's sunken vessel. Only his uncle and one other crew mate survived. Since the spelling "Odessa" was already being used by a Scottish synth band, they instead chose to use the Hungarian spelling, replacing the "ss" with "sz".
Individually Mills is known as Catacombkid, and Knight is known as Beaches Beaches. In reference to how Mills got his nickname he says, "I got into Aesop Rock and he has a song called 'Catacomb Kids.' I thought it sounded cool." On the other hand, Knight got his nickname when, "...I was high in my bedroom making music one day..."

Get Zeds Dead songs and albums from:
Zeds Dead is a Canadian electronic music duo from Toronto, Ontario composed of Dylan Mamid, or DC, and Zach Rapp-Rovan, or Hooks. DC and Hooks have been producing music together since 2004, formerly as Mass Productions. In the summer of 2007, they released one hip hop influenced album as Mass Productions, entitled Fresh Beetz, before launching Zeds Dead in 2009.
The duo are currently signed to the record label, Mad Decent, and have released music on several others; much of their music remains bootlegged, unofficially released, or given away as free downloads. Their name "Zeds Dead" is a reference from a scene in the 1994 Quentin Tarantino film Pulp Fiction.
Zeds Dead explores a diverse variety of genres that amalgamate aspects of electro house, hip-hop, glitch, and drum and bass into their largely dubstep platform. Frequent collaborator, rapper Omar Linx, has worked with the duo on several occasions, producing two EPs together as a trio. Zeds Dead tours in extensive fashion and are significant components of the live music and festival circuits. Their Living Dead Tour, which spanned from February to May 2012, included over seventy performances in the United States and Canada alone.
Zeds Dead played their first live set at The Social in Toronto on June 11, 2009. In September 2010, they founded a weekly party at the Toronto venue "751", called Bassmentality, alongside The Killabits. Bassmentality, which moved to Wrongbar in November 2010, became renowned for hosting the top international talents, and weekly performances from Zeds Dead and The Killabits. Bassmentality was founded in order to be allowed to play the music they wanted without having limits set by club owners.
Kissy Sell Out has called Zeds Dead "the future of genres...flipping genius", and in November 2010, his label "San City High" released the band's first official single, "Rudeboy". A version of "Rudeboy" featuring vocals from Omar LinX, a Toronto-based rapper who has worked on several of Zeds Dead's releases, was put out in March 2011. Zeds Dead's many productions have garnered millions of views on YouTube, topped the charts on Beatport, and earned them the support of the world's top DJs.
Zeds Dead gained international popularity long before their first official release by offering free downloads of their many productions. They continue to do so today. Their first self-released free song was "Journey of a Lifetime", which was offered to fans as a free download in June 2009. Since Journey of a Lifetime, they have self-released nearly 20 productions at no cost. They are a part of a new generation of artists who continuously release free music to the general public and their fans (a technique that was popularized by Radiohead and their 2007 album, In Rainbows).
Kissy Sellout and Skream were two of the first to take notice of the duo, featuring their remix of Blue Foundation's "Eyes on Fire" on their radio shows, on BBC Radio 1 and Rinse FM, respectively. Soon after releasing their remix of Eyes on Fire, Zed's Dead linked up with Dragonette for an official remix of their 2010 release, "Volcano". Zeds Dead's original self-released "1975" was featured in GQ Magazine's 2010 Video Shoot with Russian Supermodel Irina Shayk.
On October 4, 2010, Zeds Dead released "Rumble in the Jungle" on the popular electronic label Mad Decent. It went on to reach #1 on Beatport's breakbeat chart. The B-side of the 2-track EP entitled "Undah Yuh Skirt" features vocals from Jamaican dancehall singer Mavado. Following "Rumble In The Jungle", Zeds Dead released "Ruckus the Jam" on Steve Aoki's LA-based label, Dim Mak. In 2011, Zeds Dead released "Bassmentality" featuring The Killabits, a track made as a tribute to the friends and fans who were involved in their Toronto weekly party of the same name.
Zeds Dead began touring in September 2010 in the United Kingdom. They have since returned twice, once to tour with Kissy Sell Out, once independently in summer 2011.
On December 1, 2010 Zeds Dead began their first official North American Tour, playing over 40 dates throughout Canada and the USA.

Get Boys Noize songs and albums from:
Alex Ridha – better known to the world as BOYS NOIZE – has been making electronic music and working as a DJ for over half of his life. He established himself as one of the world's preeminent wizards behind the decks, having played the world's biggest stages alongside the biggest names in dance music.
His sets are equally uplifting, not only technically but also as a showman, leaving unforgettable experiences for the witnesses. One of the reasons why the Rolling Stone voted BOYS NOIZE amongst the Top10 `DJS WHO RULE THE EARTH` in 2012.
As a recording artist and producer, Ridha has created his own sound, and pioneered his own brand, amassing a formidable body of work in the process.
He has released three albums (2007's Oi Oi Oi , 2009's Power and 2012´s Out Of The Black) and countless singles as BOYS NOIZE, as well as doing profoundly influential work as a remixer and producer for everyone from Depeche Mode, Daft
Punk, Feist, David Lynch to Jarvis Cocker, Santigold, Scissor Sisters and Chilly Gonzales. He has collaborated with Snoop Dogg, genius film maker Mr. Oizo (on a project called Handbraekes), Erol Alkan, and most recently Skrillex (under the moniker of Dog Blood) and won Beatport's 'Best Electronic Act' 3 years in a row.
Ridha is also the heart of Boysnoize Records, the label that he started back in 2005. Founded originally as a means to get his own music out into the world, Boysnoize Rec. —and it's sub-label, BNR Trax—is now home to more than a dozen artists (including up-and-come rs like 18 – year old SCNTST, Le1f , Spank Rock , Strip Steve, Peaches and Siriusmo) and responsible for over 100 releases while remaining fully independent.
"I don´t compromise when it comes to music," says Ridha. "I do what I think is cool and what I like and not what the market wants or people may expect. Maintaining artistic freedom has always been the most important thing to me — for my own music and for anyone on my label"
Despite his ever-expanding label roster and the increased demand for his time as a producer and remixer, Ridha's primary loves continue to be the twin pursuits of making and performing music.
Following the release of his third long-player Out Of The Black in late 2012, he presented the first BOYS NOIZE 'LIVE' show to the masses.
"I really wanted to give people a concert where I perform my music only. It´s not that I don´t like DJing anymore, I´m a DJ to the bone and will always be. But playing my tracks live and putting on a completely new show was something I wanted to do for a long time. It´s different and fresh and that is what I love."

His father is of British, Irish, and German descent, and his mother is of German, Austrian, Russian and Polish descent. He grew up in a family of musicians, artists, and athletes in Northfield, IL.

Hauldren primarily DJed and made mashups under the alias Haul Pass throughout 2011.
Frederic Judson Kennett was born on October 19, 1997 to Jon Barry Kennett (born May 11, 1966) and Anne Rebecca (Moyer) Kennett (born July 1965).

Get Carl Cox songs and albums from:
A professional DJ since his early teens. A musical ambassador and a veteran of acid house and a champion of techno – you name it, Carl's been there and done it, never losing sight of his passions – playing music, breaking tunes and celebrating life.
It was at the age of 15 that Carl was given a set of turntables and began working as a mobile DJ. Disco was the first music that captivated him but by the early 80s Cox had moved on to playing the same music as other young London DJs – rare groove, New York hip-hop and electro. He was perfectly placed to hear Chicago house music in its earliest forms, and when the epic 'Acid Trax' by Phuture (a.k.a. DJ Pierre) came out in early '87. "It was then that I thought, 'This is it,' says Carl. "I would do my parties, and I'd play old rare groove and hip hop and soul and I would say 'Right you've got to hear this Phuture track' and people would just stop. It's funny because all the people who thought I had freaked out then are the people who are making the music now."
As a founder of the sound, Carl rode the exploding British rave scene. He played the opening night of Danny Rampling's legendary Shoom, co-promoted The Project with Paul Oakenfold, held a residency at the Zap Club in Brighton and at the Sunrise rave in 1988, hooked up a third turntable for his dawn-breaking set, got 15,000 kids back on their feet, and established a personal rep for three-deck wizardry.
The next step was to make music, and Carl's 1991 debut single for Paul Oakenfold's Perfecto label, 'I Want You,' gave him a top 30 hit and a Top of the Pops appearance. Two more singles also made the charts. But Carl was a reluctant pop star and as the masses moved onto fluffy house and trance, and the hardcore created jungle, Cox retreated into the club world that had nurtured him and instead embraced the underground sounds of techno. "Techno drives home somewhere," he says of his core music. "It takes you to an element of surprise, not knowing where you're going. It's scary but wonderful at the same time."
Carl's classic releases include his 1995 mix CD, 'F.A.C.T,' which became a techno benchmark, selling over 250,000 copies, and the 1996 EP 'Two Paintings and a Drum,' which again broke the British top 30. Alongside Carl's 'Ultimate Music Management' company, which counted Josh Wink and Laurent Garnier among 27 clients, there was the Ultimatum record label, for which Carl recorded his third top 30 UK single, 'Sensual Sophis-ti-cat.' In 2005, Carl's third album, 'The Second Sign' caused a stir across Europe and reached number 3 in Spain's national chart. Also gaining critical acclaim was speaker freaker 'Dirty Bass,' a collaboration with Christian Smith, and the funky 'Give Me Your Love', both released on 23rd Century Records, an outlet for his own burgeoning production output.
Carl formed his own label, Intec Records, in 1999, scoring a series of underground hits and enjoying eight years at the forefront of electronic music. After its closure in 2006, Carl was still inundated with new music, finally deciding to re-launch the label as Intec Digital at the start of 2010. It's been a triumphant return, thanks to exclusives from some of the biggest names in techno. "The label couldn't be going better," says Carl. "It's great to be back at the helm discovering underground DJs."
Intec Digital was also the home for Carl's 6th studio album, 'All Roads Lead To the Dancefloor,' released to critical acclaim in late 2011 on state-of-the-art, self-updating USB technology. The USB offered far more than a conventional album, showcasing a range of styles across its 20+ tracks whilst also giving fans access to everything from interviews & behind the scenes footage, to tutorial, tips & tricks with Carl, and much more.
2013 saw the re-launch of Carl's seminal Pure Intec series, 9 years after the hugely successful original 'Pure Intec.' 'Pure Intec Two' was released in April, with Part 1 mixed by Carl Cox and Part 2, by DJ and Intec boss Jon Rundell and coincided with the launch of a new series of Intec club nights, with Carl playing a sold out XOYO in East London.
"Jon and I thought it was time," says Carl. "We'd been working hard the last few years to get Intec back to the forefront of Techno. We have a great roster, with very talented DJs that deserve recognition. This is our way of celebrating the label's success, showcasing some of our artists, and of course putting out some amazing tracks."
Carl's legendary Ibiza residency also continues to break boundaries. Celebrating an astounding 12 consecutive years at Space, Carl and Safehouse Management have built their weekly residency into one of the Island's most popular nights. Marking a change in direction from traditional Ibiza parties, Carl and his Space revolution has always been acclaimed for its adventurous and forward-thinking line-ups, musical direction and state of the art production. This, along with Carl's highly involved and passionate role as promoter, programmer and host, is why each year has seen a growth and progression from the last, both in terms of quality and size. "We have a successful night because we just batten down the hatches and stick to what we do best, which is give value for money," explains Carl. "People come back to us, as they're big believers in our brand. Also Space is a great club, they've spent a lot of money on it, and it's just getting better and better."
All this and still Carl's 'Global' radio show is still breaking records, now reaching over 16-million listeners worldwide and syndicated across 60 terrestrial FM, Satellite and DAB stations throughout 35 countries, making him one of the most important broadcasters on the planet.

Marshmello, (stylized marshmello) is an electronic dance music producer and DJ. He first gained international recognition by remixing songs of Jack Ü and Zedd.

His musical style includes groove-oriented, synth and bass-heavy electronic dance music. Inspired by other masked DJs like Deadmau5 and Daft Punk, Marshmello appears wearing a full-head-covering marshmallow helmet. Despite the anonymity, his career received international recognition in 2015 when he began releasing tracks online, including remixes of Zedd's "Beautiful Now", Jack Ü's "Where Are U Now" and others.
With his new found fame, Marshmello performed at New York's Pier 94, Pomona, California's HARD Day of the Dead festival, and Miami Music Week. In 2016, Marshmello released a compilation of his previously released tracks, Joytime, which reached number one on a digital top electronic albums chart. Included on the album was the single "Keep It Mello" featuring rapper Omar LinX.
On 3 March 2015, Marshmello's posted his first song "WaVeZ" as an original mix on his SoundCloud page. As he released more songs, he began to receive support from established and well-known DJs like Skrillex who reposted his song "FinD Me," on his SoundCloud page.
2016: Debut album "Joytime"
On 8 January 2016, Marshmello self-released his debut album Joytime consisting of 10 tracks through his own label Joytime Collective. The album topped iTunes electronic album chart on the first day. As of 30 July 2016, the album is twelfth on the chart. Two singles were released from the album, titled "Keep it Mello" featuring rapper Omar LinX and "Want U 2". The album peaked number five on Billboard's electronic/dance albums chart.
Marshmello debuted on Monstercat with his song "Alone", which appeared on the compilation album "Monstercat 027 - Cataclysm". On 3 June 2016, it was announced that there would be a remix contest for "Alone". The winner would have their remix released by Monstercat and a chance to play an opening DJ set at Camp Bisco. It was later announced that future house duo MRVLZ had won the contest.
On 19 June 2016, Marshmello performed at Electric Daisy Carnival 2016 in Las Vegas where Dutch DJ Tiesto, who wore the same clothes as Marshmello showed up on stage and took off his helmet assuming to be Marshmello. It was later disregarded as a publicity stunt by fans and the media due to their conflicting tour dates and a photo of "the two helmeted DJs hanging out together pre-show".

NGHTMRE's (aka Tyler Marenyi) rise to the top has been a dream to say the least.

After playing his first headline gigs the week after, Tyler went on to hit almost every major festival in North America, including Lollapalooza, EDC Las Vegas, TomorrowWorld, Snow Globe, Freak Night, OMFG NYE, Moonrise, Contact Music Festival, and LifeInColor Festival.

After Australia, he went on to headline almost every major market in North America, hitting marquee venues such as Webster Hall, Avalon, The Mid, Beta, and Elektricity. He's known for his various Mad Decent smashes, including the trap song of the summer "Street" and his collaboration with Flosstradamus entitled "Lighters Up." His Nuclear Bonds EP with long time friends, Slander, was one of the premiere EP releases from Diplo's imprint.
From the writers online to the industry's top producers, it's ubiquitous: NGHTMRE is dance music's next multi-genre prodigy. His tracks have charted #1 on Hype Machine multiple times and he was dubbed "Skrillex 2.0" by EarMilk.com. At the same time, he's gained support from the top dogs such as Skrillex, Diplo, Bassnectar, Flux Pavilion, Porter Robinson, RL Grime, Yellow Claw, Bro Safari, and Snails. In fact, the list of people he has been tapped to do official remixes for reads like a massive hipster festival: The Prodigy, Theophilus London, Keys N Krates, Flux Pavilion, The Griswalds, and Elliphant. If you want to hear something you've never heard before, make sure you always listen to Tyler's most recent track, whatever it may be.

Get Golden Features songs and albums from:
Since the genres inception, producing under a mysterious moniker has yielded some of the greatest intrigue in dance music. It elevates the curiosity of fans to explore whether they know this act already, is it a fresh new producer, or who is behind the mask? All three of these questions were no more captivating than with 'overnight sensation' (AdamNotEve) and 'next big thing in Australian dance music' (Pulse) Golden Features whose name made its entrance to the flourishing scene in breakneck speed. With a 'killer' (Pilerats) EP like nothing people had heard before and an electric word of mouth, this masked producer knocked many for six – but the hype that followed few could foresee.
It was only at the tale end of February 2014 that Golden Features arrived into the thriving music world of Australia when Triple J host Lewi Mckirdy dropped the four-track EP on his Friday lunchtime show. Swiftly after the first play, fans anticipation for the Australian artist went in to a frenzied excitement for an EP that was brimming with originality and teeming with brooding touches to create this now inimitable wall of sound. 50 thousand plays in 2 weeks, turned in to 300 thousand in 3 months, which quickly turned into over a million in 6months on his soundcloud, a figure that still rises rapidly today.
This huge amount of plays and sprawling buzz opened up interest amongst tastemakers, top media, and even EDM stars like Porter Robinson who shared the same feelings of all others that listened, announcing 'that shit was awesome' of the self titled EP. This lead to an official remix of Porter Robinsons' "Years Of War" which was very positively received by blogs and public, reaching over 300k plays in only a couple of days.
What started out as a few minutes slot on Triple J was quickening no end for Golden Features, and what seemed like a blink of an eye the name was being featured in InTheMix as one of their Top 25 producers, MTV Australia as a top artist to watch and an exclusive piece in the national Times newspaper in South Africa. Hysteria was now filtering in to other territories, as Golden Features was sustaining interest that the anonymity brought – riding on his incredible music alone.
Reaching boiling point and media attention ever growing in to other parts of the World, Golden Features made the huge decision to reveal his secret identity. Wanting the music to take in all the focus and not the curiosity, Golden Features announced he was long time producer and Sydney native Tom Stell, exclusively to THUMP.
As the full EP sat in the iTunes electronic top 10 releases for months on end, lead track on the EP "Tell Me" enjoyed high rotation on Triple J and overall, the 25th highest played track of the year, there was no wonder why he was nominated as the top 5 breakthrough artists in Australia of 2014.

23 year-old NYC-based producer Jai Wolf was one of the more interesting success stories of 2014.

Since that lucky break a short year ago, Jai Wolf has played Coachella,
gained seven No. 1 tracks on Hype Machine, millions of plays on Soundcloud, and just today is finally streaming his debut original production on ODESZA's Foreign Family Collective, a glorious number entitled "Indian Summer."
Jai Wolf became linked with the ODESZA guys after they released one of his most well-received remixes to date, a rework of their track "Say My Name." Now the Seattle duo is joining the likes of Skrillex as they put their chips on the young producer and DJ, choosing to be the first to present his debut original composition to the world. After listening to the track, something tells us they have their money on a winner.

Get Dubfire songs and albums from:
Ali Shirazinia, commonly known by his stage name Dubfire, is an Iranian American house and techno DJ and producer. Prior to his solo career, Dubfire was one-half of the four-time nominated and Grammy Award-winning duo Deep Dish. Dubfire's style is noticeably different from that of Deep Dish, consisting of techno instead of progressive house.BiographyDuring his youth he listened to mostly classic Hip-Hop, jazz/rare groove, dub reggae, new wave and industrial and was also influenced by the local punk scene and the music of Washington DC-based bands including Fugazi and Minor Threat. Shirazinia frequented a local record store called Yesterday And Today Records, where he became acquainted with the sounds of artists like Kraftwerk, Ministry, Jesus & Mary Chain, Depeche Mode, Nitzer Ebb, Adrian Sherwood of On-U Sound and Einstürzende Neubauten.In 1991, Shirazinia and fellow DC resident Sharam Tayebi formed Deep Dish, a DJ and production duo that became notable for their productions and DJ sets. Deep Dish released acclaimed dance classics beginning with the 1995 remix of De'Lacy 'Hideaway,' and went on to work with an eclectic array of names in pop, rock and electronica. Shirazinia and Tayebi established Deep Dish Records, and they went on to win a Grammy in 2002 for their remix of Dido's "Thank You" along with many other high-profile awards. Following their successes as Deep Dish, both Shirazinia and Tayebi began to produce and DJ individually.Shirazinia used his long-time stage name "Dubfire" for his solo productions. Shirazinia's solo sound differs noticeably from that of Deep Dish, consisting of minimal, techno, and house instead of the predominantly progressive house sound of Deep Dish. His production I Feel Speed, which is a cover of an obscure Love & Rockets song, features his own vocals. The track symbolically and sonically marked a crossroads in Shirazinia's music career, fusing Deep Dish's vocal-driven progressive house with darker, edgier sounds. Shirazinia also sings in In Love With a Friend on Deep Dish's debut album. I Feel Speed has appeared in the advertisement of the Volkswagen Eos.In 2007, Shirazinia announced the launch of his new record label, Science + Technology Digital Audio, also known simply as SCI + TEC. He set the label up as an outlet to release his new music and began quietly unleashing a string of remarkable tracks. 2007's electro-tech track 'Roadkill' edged Dubfire ever closer to a techno sensibility, while the stripped-back 'RibCage' became the first ever release on Loco Dice's heralded Desolat label, becoming an instant classic.Dubfire followed up with an onslaught of dancefloor-igniting releases, landing on some of electronic music's leading labels. Richie Hawtin, who signed Dubfire's 'Emissions' to his highly respected Minus label, also released Dubfire's rework of 'Spastik' (the classic track that Hawtin produced in 1993 under his Plastikman alias) as an official re-work. Soon thereafter, Sven Vath's Cocoon Records took notice and released some of Dubfire's music, cementing his extraordinary reinvention.With each release, Dubfire's profile soared higher. Two top 10 tracks in Resident Advisor's 100 Most Charted Records of 2007, IDJ Magazine's Player of the Year in 2008, nominations for Beatport's Best Minimal Artist and Best Techno Artist in 2008 and 2009, covers on countless music magazines, mixes for Mixmag, BBC Radio 1's Essential Mix, and DJ Magazine - the accolades and achievements came thick and fast.In 2009, Dubfire produced a remix on Danton Eeprom and Radio Slave's 'Grindhouse' which encapsulated everything that Dubfire stands for today: dark rhythms, superior audio, and technological brilliance. It crossed nearly every genre and was the apex of a unique sound that DJ Magazine called "jet-black, polished chrome techno." Groove and Raveline Magazine named it the Best Remix of the Year.Dubfire's recent work has seen him co-produce tracks with celebrated British electronic music act Underworld, release a two-disc compilation with Loco Dice for Cocoon, additional remixes of Plastikman material, and a collaborative project with respected producer Oliver Huntemann. Throughout his remarkable journey, Dubfire's SCI+TEC label has continued to grow and is now home to a roster of globally based artists.Content: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubfire

Get Richie Hawtin songs and albums from:
Richard "Richie" Hawtin (born June 4, 1970, Banbury, Oxfordshire) is a Canadian electronic musician and DJ who was an influential part of Detroit techno's second wave of artists in the early 1990s and a leading exponent of Minimal techno since the mid-1990s. He is best known for his abstract, minimal works under the alias Plastikman.
Hawtin is known for DJing minimal techno sets making use of laptop computers and digital mixing equipment. In May 1990, Hawtin and fellow second-waver John Acquaviva founded the Plus 8 record label, which they named after their turntable's pitch adjust function. In 1998, Hawtin launched Minus records.
Hawtin was born in Banbury, Oxfordshire, England, but moved when he was aged nine to LaSalle, Ontario, a suburb of Windsor, Ontario, and just across the river from Detroit, the birthplace of techno. His father worked as a robotics technician at General Motors, and was a fan of electronic music, introducing his son to Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream at an early age. He has one brother, Matthew, who is a visual artist and ambient music DJ. Hawtin attended Sandwich Secondary High School in LaSalle. He began to DJ in clubs in Detroit at 17, and his early style was a mix of house music and techno.
With Canadian DJ John Acquaviva he formed the label Plus 8 in 1990 to release his own tracks under the name F.U.S.E. He spent part of 2002 and 2003 living in New York City, and has since moved to Berlin, Germany. He said, "I'd always wanted to move to Europe. I needed somewhere that was inspiring and where there were like-minded musicians and artists, somewhere you could still experiment with music and with life. Berlin is so liberal in so many different ways; there's an amazing club scene, there's a great development software tech scene, there are so many resources here."
Hawtin has recorded music under the aliases Plastikman, F.U.S.E., Concept 1, Forcept 1, Circuit Breaker, Robotman, Chrome, Spark, Xenon, R.H.X., Jack Master, Richard Michaels and UP!. He also recorded and performed, in combination with other artists, under group names such as The Hard Brothers, Hard Trax (with his brother Matthew Hawtin), 0733, Cybersonik (with Daniel Bell and John Acquaviva), Final Exposure (with Joey Beltram and Mundo Muzique), Just For Fun (with Holger Wick), Narod Niki (with Akufen, Cabanne, Dandy Jack, Daniel Bell, Luciano, Ricardo Villalobos, Robert Henke and Thomas Franzmann), Two Guys In The Basement (with John Acquaviva), Spawn (with Fred Giannelli and Daniel Bell) and States Of Mind (with Acquaviva).
He was the mastermind of huge raves in the Detroit area, he ran several club nights, a yearly party at City Club and a sold out show at The Necto (nightclub) Additionally, Hawtin and Pete Namlook collaborated to produce the From Within series of albums which blend minimal techno and ambient. He has also released an album Sounds of the Third Season with Sven Väth.
In 2006, Hawtin collaborated with choreographer Enzo Cosimi on a composition called "9.20" for the Winter Olympics opening ceremony. He said, "Enzo and I are very much interested in pushing boundaries, both as artists and for our audiences. Working together for the Opening Ceremonies of the Winter Games delivers the creative endeavor to not only entertain a huge audience, but to also introduce them to sights and sounds that they may have never experienced before."
Slices magazine launched a series of biographies in 2007 called "Pioneers of Electronic Music"; their first issue was a 60 minute biographical documentary on Hawtin. The film follows his career from his early days crossing the border to Detroit to his current life in Berlin, and contains interviews with many colleagues and family members.
2011 saw the release of Arkives 1993 - 2010, a massive box set containing everything Hawtin has released under his Plastikman moniker, as well as a new mixed set and previously unreleased material. The collection includes CDs, vinyl, digital downloads and a DVD.
In 2012 Hawtin worked with Loco Dice and Ean Golden in promoting Electronic Dance Music on a tour of North American universities entitled CNTRL: Beyond EDM, which included music production seminars, lessons in the music business, and live music performances.
Hawtin dismisses speculation as to the demise of dance music. In a 2009 interview he said, "In the last few years, the interest in electronic music has gone back up, the quality of the music has gone back up, there's a buzz which reminds you of the early days," he insists. "From where I'm sitting right now, dance music is more vibrant than ever. In some countries you'll always have the press saying it's going down and writing it off, but somewhere else the interest level is soaring and people are discovering this music for the first time, like in South America, where it's completely kicking off – it's unbelievable down there. There are some great festivals and parties in Europe, and over the last five years I've seen Ibiza go from complete cheesy shite music to the resurgence of a number of different types of progressive electronic music."
In November 2013, Hawtin performed as Plastikman at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City. This performance inspired him to finish a new Plastikman LP. "It put me back in the studio and inspired me enough to work on new material, and in five days I created a new album," he said. The album will be released in 2014.

Get Kayzo songs and albums from:
Hayden Capuozzo was born in Houston Texas,but called many cities his home. At the age of 24, Kayzo had his start in 2012 in a pretty unreal way. He was selected as the winner of Insomniac's 'Discovery Project' Challenge with a mix that was absolute insanity in the best form. Winning this gave him a chance to play 'Escape from Wonderland' that year and making his performance one not to forget, that also happened to be his first gig ever.
Since his debut, Kayzo hasn't let up experimenting with creating music in genres like happy hardcore, hardstyle, electro, dubstep and even a bit of psytrance. He has recently created milestone collaborations on remixes with happy hardcore rising star Gammer on their Propaganda remix by DJ Snake and Carnage with their "Never Forget You" remix.
Kayzo released his EP "Welcome To The Doghouse" in Spring '16 through his own label 'Doghouse Recordings'. The EP was comprised of an eclectic couple of songs to sink you teeth into. KAYZO most recently released his newest collobroaration with Barong Family artist, Cesqeaux, titled "Home."
There is surely no slowing the Doghouse and Hayden.

It contained many popular dance hits of the time from artist such as Leftfield, Fluke, and 2 Bad Mice as well as original productions and remixes from the duo themselves. Two years later, the duo became "true superstars" (AllMusic) with the release of their double CD Northern Exposure on mega-label Ministry of Sound. This release was brought to the United States the next year in a single CD package on Ultra Records. 1997 saw the release of the Northern Exposure 2 double CD mix album, again on Ministry of Sound. Sasha and Digweed toured internationally, helping define the sound of progressive house & trance music in the late '90s. In 1998, both John Digweed and Sasha released separate mix albums on Boxed as part of the Global Underground series with Digweed's GU 006: Sydney and Sasha's GU 009: San Francisco release.
In the late '90s, Digweed and Sasha took up residency at New York City's famous Twilo nightclub as well as releasing their third edition in the Northern Exposure series: Northern Exposure: Expeditions. They both continued their success in the Global Underground series with Digweed's GU 014: Hong Kong and Sasha's GU 013: Ibiza. In addition to their residency, they toured the United States, especially to promote their DJ mix Communicate in 2000. Shortly thereafter, they embarked on their international Delta Heavy Tour in 2002. They have collaborated little since Delta Heavy. They appeared together at the 2007 Bonnaroo Music Festival, and counted down the new year during a 4 hour set in Los Angeles at Together As One.
In 2008 Sasha & Digweed announced their plans to do another tour of North America taking in 21 cities in one month, as they announced the Sasha and John Digweed Spring Club Tour 2008. The tour began at the Winter Music Conference on March 27 at the club Mansion. This was the first time they toured North America together in six years.
In 2009 Sasha & Digweed headlined the very successful SW4 festival in London's Clapham Common.
Early years and Renaissance (1993–1995)
In early 1993, Renaissance DJs Sasha and John Digweed teamed up for DJ sets together. The pair had honed their DJing skills, often performing in tandem and focusing on track selection and technical mixing abilities. Renaissance was pleased with their performances together. Renaissance decided to let the duo compile the triple mix album, entitled Renaissance - The Mix Collection, releasing it on the club's own Renaissance Records label in April 1994, by which point Sasha had already left Renaissance. Sasha had been featured on the cover of Mixmag with the tagline "SON OF GOD?", though he did not welcome the accolade. The album featured tracks from such artists as Leftfield, Fluke, and 2 Bad Mice, and original productions and remixes from Sasha and Digweed, and was successful in the UK Compilation Chart where it peaked at #9. Another album, Renaissance: The Mix Collection Part 2, acting as the second part to Renaissance: The Mix Collection, was released in 1995. As Sasha had left Renaissance, John Digweed mixed this album alone.
Northern Exposure (1996–2000)
After touring together for a further two years, the duo became "true superstars" with the release of their next mix album, the double Northern Exposure on the Ministry of Sound's record label. The album was designed as a concept album of two "journeys", disc one being 0° North and the second, 0° South. A special unmixed version of the album with a highly altered track list was released on vinyl. The album was critically acclaimed and is generally considered a landmark in the history of progressive house.
In 1997, the duo worked on a follow up to Northern Exposure, again following the concept album theme, with one disc representing the West Coast and the other disc the East Coast. It was released in 1997 on the Ministry of Sound label as Northern Exposure 2. The album only charted at #15 in the UK Compilation Chart but it was again a critical success. To support the album, the duo toured internationally, and in the process helped to define the sound of trance music in the late 1990s. After extensive touring, Digweed and Sasha took up residency at New York City's famous Twilo nightclub, where they would DJ for the entire night. In 1998, the two released separate mix albums on the Boxed label, as part of the Global Underground series: Digweed's Global Underground 006: Sydney, and Sasha's Global Underground 009: San Francisco, which drew from Sasha's experience touring on the West Coast of the United States. Both DJs formed their own record labels that year: Sasha created Excession Records and Digweed started Bedrock Records. Excession released fewer than ten records, the last in 1998; the experience, however, led Sasha to found the management agency "Excession: The Agency LTD." Excession remains a booking agency for many DJs, including Hybrid, Nick Warren, and Steve Lawler.
In 1998, Sasha and Digweed reunited in the studio to record their third and final album for the Northern Exposure series, Northern Exposure: Expeditions. The album wasn't as successful with fans compared with their previous albums, who disliked the duo's voyage into exploring vocal trance, however, it was popular with critics and it charted better in the UK Compilations Chart than their previous albums, the CD version charting at #6 (the vinyl edition of the album, largely different than the CD version, charted at #37).
In between touring and producing original material, Sasha and Digweed released the mix album Communicate in 2000, prompting them to temporarily leave their Twilo residency for a promotional tour of the United States. Communicate had reasonable commercial success, but it received mixed reviews: Spin stated that despite a "few stellar moments, [Communicate] is ultimately a let-down". LAUNCHcast, too, described Communicate as "boring and lackluster...stalled in a monochrome world of dead beats". To promote the album, the duo toured the United States.
During the late 1990s, the increased popularity and visibility of "superstar DJs" led to the creation of superclubs such as Liverpool's Cream and Sheffield's Gatecrasher. By 2003, however, electronic dance music clubs languished. Though dance music had been declared "dead" by many in the dance industry, Sasha continued to tour—despite the closing of many superclubs, including his resident club Twilo in May 2001. Sasha was unable to play their last gigs at Twilo due to Digweed suffering an ear injury, leaving Digweed to perform alone.[clarification needed]
Delta Heavy tour and hiatus (2002–2006)
Sasha and Digweed began their ambitious Delta Heavy Tour of the United States in 2002, following the closing of Twilo. The tour featured veteran tour producer Kevin Lyman and opening act Jimmy Van M, the tour covered 31 cities and played to 85,000 people. The appearances were complete with laser shows and video production, were similar to rock concerts than to typical DJ events. This motif was new to the DJing scene, and compelled other DJs to host similar concerts.
2004 marked the tenth anniversary of Renaissance: The Mix Collection, which had been out of print for years prior. Sasha and Digweed decided to release an anniversary edition of the album. However, rather than re-release the album straight forward, they recreated the album in a brand new session. Two tracks by M People that featured on the original 1994 release had to be dropped due to licensing issues, so they were replaced by a track each by Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark and Anthony White respectively. Though the original blend sequences from the original album remained the same, Sasha and Digweed re-created the album using Apple G4 laptops in order to create, what they considered, a better quality version of the original mix, with recording techniques simply not available in 1994, as well as the advantage of crystal clear audio, and spatial separation of frequencies within the song, making it sound more dynamic.
The duo's next release was based on Delta Heavy. The release was a Region 1 DVD of performance highlights, interviews, and behind-the-scenes footage, Sasha & John Digweed present Delta Heavy, released on System Recordings. Ben Turner, creator of the DanceStar awards, retrospectively described the Delta Heavy tour as "a landmark moment for electronic music".
Though the duo of Sasha and Digweed never explicitly split up, demanding schedules and frequent independent touring prevented any substantial collaboration for a long period after Delta Heavy.
Though frequent performing and other activities prevented them from working together for several years, Sasha and Digweed announced that they would reunite for a few Australian performances, starting in November 2006. The duo performed at several venues, including Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne as well as numerous tour dates which had followed throughout 2007. In 2008, Sasha and Digweed started an American tour with a performance at the Winter Music Conference. The duo played at mainly larger venues on the weekends and smaller (750-1000 people) shows on weekdays. Sasha described their music as "driving and dark" with "a little throwback of Twilo sounds". They appeared together at the 2007 Bonnaroo Music Festival, and counted down the new year during a 4 hour set in Los Angeles at Together As One. The duo now perform together annually at the Winter Music Conference.

Get The Martinez Brothers songs and albums from:
The Martinez Brothers, two young men from the Bronx raised on their father's love of the Paradise Garage and road- tested worldwide since before they left high school, are emerging as leaders in the global house music market.
In 2013 their standing within the world of underground house and techno is solid and constantly rising – their DJ sets are full of energy, fuelled by the brothers' depth of knowledge and an innate ability to guide the crowd.
Today The Martinez Brothers (Steve and Chris) enjoy a hectic touring schedule that has brought them from Tokyo to the Ukraine, across their native America and much of Europe. Having spent time honing their craft in the States, frequent trips to Europe helped them to evolve further and the white isle, Ibiza, bolstered their reputation and really put them on the map. It was in Ibiza in 2010 where Chris and Steve soaked up the sounds inside Circo Loco at DC10, the world famous party responsible for inspiring and baptising some of the world's best-known DJs. Spending an entire season in Ibiza led to the brothers picking up a residency at the club in 2011, and they were welcomed into the infamous Circo Loco family.
As producers, they have delivered several impressive releases from their earliest days at Objektivity under the guidance of Dennis Ferrer to collaborations with pioneers DJ Sneak and Point G (DJ Gregory). While on a heavy tour circuit they can be found keenly editing and cutting up tracks to help drive their DJ performances in their signatory layered style. What further sets them apart from many of their peers is a sense of rhythm informed by their Latin roots and time spent growing up within church bands where they learned to play percussion and keys. Latin jazz, salsa and disco were early influences and later hip-hop and, subsequently, house and techno became their forte.
Their back catalogue demonstrates their versatility and ability to roll out dancefloor-ready productions that date back to their first release "My Rendition" on Objektivity in 2006. Other highlights include 'Broke In The Bx' also on Objektivity and the ubiquitous 'H 2 Da Izzo' on Real Tone, plus remixes on Saved, Crosstown Rebels, Bass Culture and one of 2013's big underground Ibiza hits Santos Resiak "A Better Light" (The Martinez Brothers Remix), which was released on One Records. Green Velvet's 'Bigger Than Prince' for Yousef's Circus label further speaks to their range as producers as they deliver a dark, raw groove with cut-up vocal accents. The self-released white label featuring "E's Demise" and "The Hat Trick", co-produced with Italian producer Mass Prod, were created during a few late night studio sessions in Berlin experimenting with analogue gear and are executed in the same gritty tone as "Prince".
2013 marked the beginning of their homespun NYC event series Mad Beats & Crazy Styles in conjunction with events company ReSolute which offers them a space to explore their New York dance music roots. Guests have included DJ Qu, Rick Wilhite, Kerri Chandler as well as Arthur's Landing (a band that plays Arthur Russell covers). They recently took the concept to Kazantip festival in the Ukraine where they jammed live on a rhythm section with Guti on keys.
They have also conceived a new record label, Cuttin' Headz, which will be a home to their musical experimentations. With their new label expect an even more diverse range of sounds, from raw, stripped down techno tools to one of their first loves, hip-hop. Its ethos is simple; no discrimination, just diversity, good music and good times. And that's what The Martinez Brothers are all about.

Get Danny Tenaglia songs and albums from:
Daniel "Danny" Tenaglia (born March 7, 1961) is a New York-based DJ and Grammy nominated record producer.BiographyEarly lifeAt the age of ten, Tenaglia first started to collect records. In 1979 he began going to nightclub Paradise Garage, where DJ Larry Levan's genre-less blend of music appealed to him. This was the club model Tenaglia would one day emulate: Levan's bold style, the venue's plain décor, and the party's warmth and inclusiveness.Tenaglia left New York in 1985 and started DJ-ing in Miami as a resident at Cheers nightclub, playing classic New York and Chicago house. He returned to New York five years later. At this time, he started to create some remixes, including Right Said Fred's "I'm Too Sexy" (1991), Jamiroquai's "Emergency on Planet Earth" (1993), and Madonna's "Human Nature" (1994).DJ careerTenaglia's first mainstream success was with a remix of The Daou's "Surrender Yourself" (1993). The title of his 1995 debut artist album on New York's Tribal Records described the genre as Hard & Soul. Tenaglia cited his influences ranged from Patti LaBelle to Kraftwerk, with many lesser-known Soul, R&B, Latin, Samba, and Disco artists in between.Subsequent to this Tenaglia released three label compilations - Mix This Pussy (1994) and Can Your Pussy Do The Dog? (1995) for Tribal, and Gag Me With A Tune (1996) for Maxi.ProducerIn 1996, after working for a short time at the New York nightclub Roxy, Tenaglia started a Saturday night residency at Twilo, a position that brought him some public attention. Contrary to the music popular in New York at the time, Tenaglia was producing the more minimal, tech-y grooves originating in European production studios. This period produced remixes like Grace's "Not Over Yet" (1996) and Janet Jackson's "The Pleasure Principle" (1996). In 1998 he moved his residency over to NY club Tunnel.In 1998 Danny released another full length LP titled Tourism. The album featured the track "Elements," an instant classic. With his own warped voice providing the narration, "Elements" walked the listener through the different components of a dance track in real time, going from kick to drum loop to snare hit, letting each layer over the other until the track exploded with dark, drum-heavy energy. "Elements" was #1 on the Billboard Dance Chart for two weeks in 1998. "Music is the answer" featuring Celeda (also on the LP Tourism) was on the top 40 charts in the UK. Next to ostentatious radio anthems, its simplicity was a revelation.The release of his first installment in the UK-based Global Underground series of DJ mixes, titled Athens (2000), lit the international fire. Athens (meant to reflect the set he played at the Greek capital's club King Size) remains one of the darkest, strangest, sexiest sets ever released by Danny. Its tame cover photo of a gentle-looking man in a Yankee cap just didn't seem to fit. DJ dates across Europe dispelled the mystery and started to clue people in as to what Danny's sets were like.Back in New York, Tenaglia was tiring of the cavernous gloom of Tunnel and longed for a weekly home that better resembled where the DJ bug first bit him - the Paradise Garage. He landed at Vinyl, a black-walled, single-environment, no-liquor club about one-quarter the size of Tunnel. He named the night "Be Yourself," after the self-affirming, heavy-bottomed vocal track he had recently recorded with Chicago's Celeda. And he took the name to heart: Without the pressure of bar minimums or an expectant crowd, Tenaglia spread his DJ wings. Next to new tracks he played tracks by the artists who inspired him during his youth. If he wanted to launch into a two-hour set of straight-up techno, he did. If he wanted to play old Michael Jackson records, he did. If he wanted to get on the mic and tell the crowd the name of the sound he was about to play, or who next week's guest opening DJ would be, or just give everyone a "verbal handshake" to welcome them to the club, he did. And a city tired of drama embraced the barebones, music-centered night.The world caught up to Tenaglia in 2000. His annual party during Miami's Winter Music Conference outgrew its home at the cramped Groovejet and moved to just-opened superclub Space. DJ giants like Carl Cox danced on top of the speakers with the Deep Dish boys, Fatboy Slim mingled on the patio, and for a day the ego inherent to DJ culture evaporated: Tenaglia was hailed as the "DJ's DJ." His roof-raising revamp of Green Velvet's "Flash" won "Best Remix" at the UK's Muzik Awards, where he was also awarded the "Best International DJ" prize.In the two years that followed, Tenaglia released another Global Underground installment titled London; toured the world, took the party island of Ibiza by storm, remixed Billy Nichols' "Give Your Body Up To The Music" (a Garage anthem); got nominated for a Grammy (for his remix of Depeche Mode's "I Feel Loved," also nominated for Best Dance Song); returned to Twilo for two special gigs - a President's Day marathon with Carl Cox that shattered all its attendance records, and the club's sixth anniversary party with John Digweed, which turned out to be even more meaningful than it seemed at the time (Twilo was shut down permanently a week later); graced the cover of every major dance music magazine; and won a Dancestar Lifetime Achievement award... all while keeping the "Be Yourself" party buzzing every Friday.In 2003, Danny came full circle with the release of Choice: A Collection Of Classics, a two-CD mixed compilation that let him pay direct tribute to many of the artists who had influenced his sound and style. It featured everyone from Blaze to Adeva to Imagination, as well as hefty liner notes explaining the significance of each track, penned by Danny himself. He also remixed another Garage classic (Yoko Ono's "Walking On Thin Ice," which became her first Billboard number one ever), opened another Space during Winter Music Conference (the new location down the block), and took another Dancestar award, this time 'Best Party' for "Be Yourself.""Be Yourself" took the same honor again in 2004, but this time the win was bittersweet. At the time of the ceremony, Vinyl, now called Arc, had already been sold to condo developers. Danny closed the classic club on Sunday, April 25, 2004, with an emotional set that lasted well into Monday afternoon, and culminated with his mix of Kings Of Tomorrow's paean to unending love, "Finally."Present DaySince then Danny has remained prolific in the clubs and has graced the decks in all the big rooms in NYC including Avalon, Crobar, Pacha NYC, Roxy and Webster Hall. After a long studio silence, Danny re-emerged in 2008 with a single on Tommy Boy Records, "The Space Dance". It was named in honor of his first weekly residency during the summer season of 2008 at renowned global clubbing institution Space Ibiza. The track reached number 1 on the Billboard Club Charts during November 2008.Immediately following that, Danny released his first compilation album in five years, entitled Futurism, also on Tommy Boy Records, with a nod to the modern dance floor and Danny's outlook for tomorrow's sounds. The compilation featured tracks from artists whom Danny had been championing for several years including Davide Squillace, The Wighnomy Brothers and Afefe Iku.After over 30 years of DJing Danny still continues to tour around the world. His commitment to playing new music and incorporating it with music from his past is still a very big part of his performances.On April 17, 2012, Danny announced via his Facebook page he was "resigning", canceling all upcoming shows except his birthday party at Pacha on April 28. His hiatus is indefinite.

Get Nicole Moudaber songs and albums from:
Nicole Moudaber is a Nigerian music producer and DJ born in Nigeria, raised there and moved to London after graduating from Richmond College with Social Sciences BS degree. In 2009, Carl Cox described her as "the most underrated DJ" to DJ Magazine, which helped to launch her career. Her 2013 debut album Believe was Number 1 for a month on the Beatport techno, tech house, and deep house charts. Moudaber has teamed with techno notables such as Carl Cox, Adam Beyer, etc. and she also launched MOOD Records imprint in 2012.
While living in Lebanon, Moudaber was one of the first people to bring dance music to Beirut. After the war in 1996 her "Trashy Renaissance" party in Beirut was the first rave event of its kind and prompted her to bring out international DJs, including Paul Van Dyk and Anthony Pappa for the first time to the Middle East. Moudaber describes her first party as: "I threw [it] in the middle of Beirut city was in the vicinity of a mosque and a cathedral, it was meant to defy the notion of hatred and prove we can do it together (the new generation) through music. It was a total success."
One of Moudaber's all-inclusive electronic music parties was detailed in the media and resulted in her being summoned by the police:
"At the time Syrians were heavily involved in Lebanon and I had started putting on parties. One happened to be around Halloween and as a result, all the gays took advantage and came dressed up as drag queens and other outrageous stuff—all in the name of fun. It turned out that undercover journalists were scouting the party. They took photos and it ended up being a five-page spread in the Middle Eastern equivalent of Cosmopolitan talking about homosexuality and perversion in the Middle East—my party being heavily featured within this article. Five months down the line I was asked to go down to the police station because the authorities had some questions for me. When I got down there, they were treating me like a terrorist, asking me all sorts of questions about my affiliation with homosexual people and whether I had seen them doing things. It was a really sad and outrageous situation, but luckily I had connections and therefore didn't stay long. It was enough to persuade me that I was wasting my time out there and that these people would never get that sense of ritual and community I was trying to bring within these events, so I very much stuck to London and Europe from there onwards."
Moudaber is listed as a Resident Advisor Top 1000 artist.

Get Marco Bailey songs and albums from:
Marco grew up in a small village in Belgium. Nothing much happened there really, but he did learn that one doesn't achieve much without working hard. He is a true hedonist but a workaholic as well. Marco loves to work hard and spin records as much as possible; sleeping is for later. Therefore, his colleagues know him for his no-nonsense kick-ass mentality. At the age of 12, Marco wanted nothing more than to become a sportsman since motocross and competitive cycling were his passions until injuries made it impossible to continue and Marco soon had a new obsession - music, then shortly after that DJing. He started playing Funk, Hip Hop, Rock,New Wave and Punk!! Marco Bailey has spun every style of music and played pretty much everywhere in the world. There are not many countries in the world that Marco hasn't cracked a crowd as DJ. His burning, all-consuming drive could only be calmed by getting into music. A positive result of this is seen on a daily basis in the studio, where together with his best friend Tom Hades he works on tracks and DJ sets, puzzling just as long as it takes to get it to sound right and release the right energy. Marco calls this his 'positive disorder', positive because it gives meaning to his life. He is constantly on the road or at work in the studio and doesn't take his job lightly. He invests all of his energy to make sure he can give the best possible performance to his audiences all around the world. Having a superstar status in Belgium, he travels the world playing the biggest events as well as the small intimate clubs. His mixture of party techno, minimal and electronic house means he is a permanent fixture at all major European festivals and clubs. With love, hard work and fantastic sounds he has succeeded in gaining worldwide recognition. Playing events like Extrema Outdoor (NL), Time Warp (DE), Awakenings (NL), I Love Techno (BE), Nature One (DE), Wire (JP), Monegros (SP) and clubs such as Zouk or Avalon (SG), Ageha (JP), Space (ES), Industrial Copera (ES) and Chinese Laundry (AU) he has made clear that he still is a big force to reckon with. Killer releases on respected labels of the industry such Bedrock, Intec Records, Drumcode, Tronic, Toolroom Rec, 1605 amongst others has confirmed his strong reputation as a producer to be followed. He has since set up MB Elektronics & MB Selektions to release high quality music and remixes by Marco himself alongside Carl Cox, John Digweed, Adam Beyer, Umek, Christian Smith, John Selway & Cristian Varela. In July 2011 MB Elektronics celebrated their 70th release with a special compilation put together by Marco. In 2000 he joined forces with Christian Varela to set up Pornographic Recordings, a respected outlet to give unknown talent a chance to release their music. After a short hiatus where both parties concentrated on their own careers the label is back up and running with releases from Joseph Capriati and Cristian Varela. The Pornographic parties, which are a great success in Spain (Ibiza), are continuing to become bigger and better around the world. In 2009 John Digweed released the first of many Marco Bailey releases on his Bedrock Records Imprint (Jungle Laps in October 2009, Watergate and Rayavadee in 2010) These tracks led the way for Marco to release his debut artist album "Dragon Man" also on Bedrock Records in February 2011, a few other massive releases followed (Faint Hope and Sa Trinxa in April 2011, Oriental Disco in 2012, Stars & Shines March 2012). Marco Bailey does not like to think in boxes but more outside the box. Although he has an expansive taste in music, techno keeps intriguing him. Despite techno growing into a bigger genre with its sub-styles in minimal, tech house and hard techno, he still discovers fascinating records in every style. This is the reason Marco's sound is so diverse and surprising. Marco his weekly 'MB Elektronics Force' radio show is now available worldwide as a podcast via iTunes and on more than 45 radiostations worldwide. Marco's carrer has so far stretched more than 20 years as a DJ and 15 years as a producer and there are no signs of him slowing down here to the next 20 years!

Get Goldie songs and albums from:
For other uses, see Goldie (disambiguation).
Clifford Joseph Price, MBE (born 19 September 1965), better known as Goldie, is a British electronic music artist, disc jockey, visual artist and actor from Walsall, England. He is well known for his innovations in the 1990s UK rave scene, including musical styles such as jungle and drum and bass. He had previously gained exposure for his work as a graffiti artist.
His acting credits include the 1999 James Bond film The World Is Not Enough, Guy Ritchie's Snatch (2000) and the BBC soap opera EastEnders. He has also appeared in a number of celebrity reality television shows, including Celebrity Big Brother 2, Strictly Come Dancing, Come Dine with Me and Maestro.
Price is of Jamaican and Scottish heritage. He was put up for adoption and raised in child-care homes and by several foster parents. Price was a member of the breakdance crew Westside, based in the Whitmore Reans and Heath Town areas of Wolverhampton, in the 1980s. He later joined a breakdance crew called the Bboys, and made his name as a graffiti artist in the West Midlands.
His artwork around Birmingham and Wolverhampton was featured heavily in Afrika Bambaataa's documentary Bombing. He took part in the largest ever British graffiti art battle alongside Bristol artist Robert "3D" Del Naja, who later formed Massive Attack. He is mentioned for his graffiti in the book Spraycan Art by Henry Chalfant and James Prigoff, which contains several examples of his art.
He moved to the US owing to graffiti projects, and also started selling grills (gold teeth jewellery) in New York and Miami; he continued this business after his return to the UK in 1988. Contrary to popular belief, this is not where his nickname comes from; it stems from "Goldielocks", an earlier nickname given to him during his B-boy days and subsequently shortened when he no longer wore dreadlocks.
By 1991, Price had become fascinated by the British breakbeat music scene when his girlfriend, DJ Kemistry, introduced him to the pioneering jungle and drum and bass producers Dennis "Dego" McFarlane and Mark "Marc Mac" Clair, known as 4hero. He went on to execute some design and A&R work for 4hero's Reinforced record label.
In 1992, Price made his first album appearance, by contributing a short vocal piece to the track "Rufige" by Icelandic group, Ajax Project. Since then the track has been repeatedly misattributed to Price himself, perhaps because of his subsequent use of "Rufige" as a moniker for his own ambitions.
His releases Killa Muffin b/w Krisp Biscuit and the Dark Rider EP were released under the alias "Rufige Cru". Recently, he has used the alias "Rufige Kru" to release collaborations with other producers such as Heist. His track "Terminator", released under the name "Metalheadz" in 1992, was a hit in the jungle scene and is noted for pioneering the use of time stretching. In 1993, he released Angel, another 12" on the Synthetic Hardcore Phonography label. 1994 saw him setting up his own record label, Metalheadz.
His first studio album, Timeless, followed in 1995. Timeless entered the UK Albums Chart at number seven. The album fused the breakbeats and basslines common in jungle with orchestral textures and soul vocals by Diane Charlemagne. The album's title track was a 21-minute symphonic piece. "Inner City Life", a track from the album, reached number 39 in the UK Singles Chart.Timeless helped to popularise drum and bass as a form of musical expression. The music critic Simon Reynolds noted that Price's credentials as a musical innovator - and particularly as one of the key driving forces of innovation in the jungle/breakbeat scene - were exceptional. "Goldie revolutionised jungle not once but thrice", he noted in The Wire magazine, continuing, "First there was 'Terminator' (pioneering the use of time stretching), then 'Angel' (fusing Diane Charlemagne's live vocal with David Byrne/Brian Eno samples to prove that hardcore could be more 'conventionally' musical), now there's 'Timeless', a 22-minute hardcore symphony."
1996 saw the release of his Toasted Both Sides Please remix of the Bush song Swallowed, which topped charts in the USA and Canada.
Price released his second album, Saturnz Return, in 1998. The album's opening track, "Mother", is an hour-long orchestral drum and bass piece. The album featured appearances by David Bowie, Noel Gallagher and KRS-One.
In 2002, Price said that he had been working for three years on a film called Sine Tempus, described as a coming-of-age story of a young paintbrush artist. In 2006, he announced the soundtrack as his new album. The album was released via the Metalheadz website in 2008, but the film has not been released.
Price is known for his work as the leader of Rufige Kru. The group has no fixed members and has included drum and bass producers such as Technical Itch, Heist, Cujo, Agzilla Da Ice, Danny J, Doc Scott and Rob Playford.
March 2013 saw the release of The Alchemist: The Best of Goldie 1992-2012, featuring prominent tracks from throughout Price's musical career.
Price has appeared in Guy Ritchie's Snatch and several other films, most notably the James Bond film, The World Is Not Enough.

Get Rabbit in the Moon songs and albums from:
Rabbit in the Moon was an American electronic music group. Their style draws from psychedelic trance, house music and breakbeat, along with other diverse influences.
Formed in 1992 in Tampa, Florida, the group consisted of performer/singer Bunny and producer David Christophere. Former member DJ Monk left the group in 2002.
After several singles released on Monk and David Christophere's Hallucination Recordings label under the name Anarch-E, their first success as producers came in 1993 with the release of the "Phases of an Out of Body Experience" single on Hardkiss Records. As remixers, Rabbit in the Moon has reworked songs by artists such as Garbage ("Queer" and "Milk"), Tori Amos ("Precious Things"), Sarah McLachlan ("Fear", "Possession"), Orbital ("Are We Here?"), Smashing Pumpkins ("The End Is the Beginning Is the End"), Goldie ("Inner City Life"), White Zombie ("Blood, Milk and Sky") and Delerium ("Euphoria").
Rabbit in the Moon has also collaborated with Humate and in 1994 they released the Hemispheres E.P.
Throughout their entire career, Rabbit in the Moon toured extensively across the entire United States playing shows at countless venues and raves.
The Rabbit in the Moon Remixes Volume 2 CD came with a liner note stating that there was a new album to be released in summer of 2001. The album never materialized. Because of Monk's departure, questions were raised as to whether the band was breaking up, but this was not the case.
A new song called "Time Bomb" surfaced in 2003, with David Christophere and Bunny as the only producers on the track.
In 2005, they made the song "Came and Conkered", inspired by and featured in the soundtrack of the 2005 video game Conker: Live & Reloaded. They were asked by Nile Rodgers to create music for the Xbox remake of the game.
Early in 2007, a countdown to a new album appeared on the band's MySpace page, putting the release date in April 2007. The album was ultimately released on July 10, 2007. It features two discs: one, a collection of past singles and newer material in audio CD format; the other, a collection of music videos and live performances from various festivals and concerts in DVD format. The record is called "Decade", and was released on Contagious Musiq / Southbeat Records.
In 2008, on the second night of the Annual World DJ Festival in Seoul, South Korea, frontman Bunny was injured when a glass bottle thrown by someone in the crowd hit his left eye, lacerating his retina, lens, and skin, and severely damaging his vision. Friends and fans throughout the electronic dance music community rallied to raise money to help him pay for his medical expenses.
As of 2010, Rabbit in the Moon announced on their MySpace page that they were working on a new double album.
On March 27, 2010, Rabbit in the Moon performed at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami. David Christophere was not seen at this show, fueling rumors he left the band and of an imminent band break up. David Christophere's last Rabbit in the Moon show was New Year's Eve 2009.
The two have not performed a show together since. Bunny has been performing around the world under the title BUNNY or Bunny Live, dates found on his website BunnyInYourFace.com
Dave Christophere continues to produce music and DJ from his home base in Los Angeles. Dates can be found on their Facebook page 1
On December 16, 2015, the Ultra Music Festival of Miami announced on their lineup of 2016 edition the appearance of Rabbit on the Moon.

Get Rezz songs and albums from:
I make weird tunes.
Typically the bio is written in 3rd person but...
HI. I'm Rezz. I'm 20 years old. I started producing in november of 2013 & pretty much haven't left my computer since. I use ableton 9. It was rocket science at first but nothing 14 hours a day can't fix. Some of my musical influences are deadmau5, gesaffelstein, alesia, amon tobin, eskmo, bassnectar, pretty lights & tons more that i'm likely forgetting. I will eternally give tunes away for free despite signing to SOME labels that cross my path because I want to treat all humans to a delightful first impression. I love & appreciate life and hope the same for you. I'm also obsessed with my dogs. Hope u like my music : )

Founded during the summer of 2000, the Planet of the Drums is the alliance of four of America's most popular drum and bass DJ's: AK1200 (Dave Minner, Orlando, Florida), DJ Dara (Darragh Guilfoyle, Brooklyn, New York), Dieselboy (Damian Higgins, Brooklyn, New York), and MC Messinian (James Fiorella, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania). The alliance was created to move drum and bass out of siderooms and onto the main stages of electronic dance music events.
In fall 2009 the Planet of the Drums embarked on their Tenth Anniversary Tour. The Planet of the Drums is the longest-running annual national electronic dance music tour of any genre.
In 2010 The Planet of the Drums switched to performing one-offs, the first played at U Street Music Hall in Washington, DC in December 2010.
As told to RINSE Magazine (now defunct) in 2007:
"We all ended up playing the same place at the same time in New Orleans on the Moonshine Over America tour in 1999," says Dara. 'Damian said we really ought to do a tour to promote dnb because we're supposedly the three biggest draws, to prove to promoters that dnb is a viable proposition.'
"Dieselboy explains, 'I had this epiphany. It would be cool if people could see three big dogs together, and it would be a sign of unity in the scene. 'The first tour with MC Dub2 was a success,' says Dieselboy. 'The second year we attempted to get MC Rage from England but he had a visa problem. Messinian came on because he'd MC'ed for me at Platinum in Philly.'
"Messinian (James Fiorella, Philadelphia), then part of the Substitution crew, describes the call from DSL, 'I always came to Platinum strapped with a mic, just in case. I got a call out of the blue that their MC couldn't make it. I said, 'Hells yeah, I'll pack my bags!'
"'We realized we could use our collective weight to lean on promoters to get our music on the main stage," Dieselboy admits. 'I felt like kids were getting ripped off paying full price and having to listen to dnb on the shittiest sound system while the other kids got to hear trance, techno and house on the big system. We've come a long way in elevating respect for dnb.'
"'At first we did individual sets and tag-teamed at the end,' says AK1200. 'It evolved into a multi-setup where we do spontaneous routines. Damian usually starts and Dara or I go on after him. Then we go three records, three records, three records, with the whole night ranging from two to five hours. Our main setup is two Technics 1200's and two Pioneer CDJ-1000's with an Allen & Heath mixer, a separate Pioneer mixer with another turntable and another CDJ-1000 hooked up to an auxiliary of the main mixer. Two people are on at all times and the other is standing by.'
"'Stylistically,' says Dara, 'We're complementary. Damian plays the hardest, myself I play the mellower tunes, and Dave is somewhere in between.'
"Messinian says, 'I try to take the energy of the club to that next level, get everybody on the same page, sparking that fire that makes it go fucking bananas. We're a strong unified force.'"
Planet of the Drums Intros
In 2005? the Planet of the Drums began a tradition of creating dramatic science fiction-style audio introductions to kick off their shows.
[note: preacher friend of AK1200 recorded in DJ Icey's studio;
For the 2008 POTD intro, Dieselboy hired Julianne Moore, the disembodied female voice in the movie thriller "Eagle Eye", with sound design by SPKTRM and Dieselboy]
The POTD created their first video intro for their 2009 10th Anniversary Tour, script by Dieselboy and AK1200, sound design by Venezuelan producer Zardonic.
Dieselboy created the audio intro for the Planet of the Drums 2010 reunion at U Street Music Hall in Washington, DC on December 9, 2010. For the first time in a Planet of the Drums performance Dieselboy incorporated dubstep and drumstep into the mix. Opening for them in this Steez Promo production were Grime Syndicate, Cannon Boyz, and Headhunterz Inc..
