•Knife Party
2012 saw the birth of dance duet Knife Party, having rocketed from an unknown entity, to one of the most renowned dance acts in the world with a barely a moment to catch their breath. The groups first EP ‘100% No Modern Talking’ racked up over half a million downloads and was backed up by their second EP ‘Rage Valley’ achieving top 10’s in the UK, USA, Canada and Australia iTunes charts and debut at #1 and #2 in both the Beatport and Trackitdown dubstep charts. They have amassed over 2.3 million Facebook fans, achieved over 20 million plays of ‘Internet Friends’ on YouTube alone, and have headlined shows and festivals to tens of thousands of fans the world over. Remixing Porter Robinson, Labrinth and Nero to name a few, Knife Party also collaborated with Swedish House Mafia on the phenomenal worldwide smash ‘Antidote’. November 2014 saw the release of a debut ‘Abandon Ship’ which saw the profile of the group continue to grow internationally. The opening single ‘Resistance’ was released as an instant grat track and was impressively streamed over 20 thousand times in the first 24 hours. 2015 saw the bands profile expand further with various headline slots around the world, including Global Gathering and Tomorrowland as well as touring their sell out Haunted House tour to arenas throughout America. The group also played a number of festivals throughout the summer, these include the Earstorm stage at the Future Music Festival and the main stage at Ultra in Miami. Q4 for the guys also sees the release of their latest EP along with headline shows at both Warehouse Project and a huge Halloween show in Brixton Academy, where they will be unveiling their incredible new show to which will soon be played to a global stage. The Knife Party movement is both a viral and a global one, and this will come as no surprise to anyone that has witnessed their performances or heard their music!

The age of the Producer/DJ is upon us, there is no denying that. It is incredibly easy to get lost in the ever growing roster of hopefuls overpopulating our news feeds nowadays, but there are a chosen few who shine through.
Enter the Bahour brothers, or as you've most certainly seen them, Contrvbvnd. These San Diego natives have been putting the work in day in and day out to make their rise to power nothing less than meteoric. Alaa(25) & Omar(22) have made it their sole purpose in life to create, from the ground up, dance music that moves you to the very core. “Fuck Genres” has been there moto since they started producing and something they have stuck too, no genre is safe from these banger busting brothers set on world domination. They first started producing after EDC Las Vegas 2011 when their creative spirit was given new life through a Skrillex set that changed them forever. This new attitude brought along with it a hunger to be staples in the festival circuit, make and play original content, and travel the world spreading their music and message. In the last year they have been crossing accomplishments off their lists left and right. With the release of Click The duo saw and immediate increase in hype. The track was a collaboration with Haterade, released by Elysian Records, and premiered on the EDM Network. One could say it was the start of it all. With multiple original tracks, collaborations, and remixes coming out every couple of weeks they have seen a fan base grow right in front of their eyes, gaining 14,000 Soundcloud followers in only a year. With countless hometown bookings under their belt, they've recently left the state and have begun touring more and more. The future is as bright as the sun in San Diego for these up and comers, and you should consider yourself lucky to bear witness.
