Born to a dancer mother and a percussionist father, it is hardly surprising that Aliaune Damala Thiam or better known as Akon took to music like a duck to water. But what is amazing is his very journey from a three year jail sentence to become the Guinness Book of World Records’ holder for the world’s number one selling artist for master ringtones. With 5 Grammy Award nominations, 45 Billboard Hot 100 Songs and over 35 million copies of music albums sold worldwide, he is still continuing to make a mark on the music world.

Born on April 16, 1973 in Senegal, his very first music album, “Trouble” with the hit song, “Locked Up” took the US and other countries by storm. Not known to many, this album was actually based on his very personal experiences in life. His second album, “Konvicted” not only earned him 3 Grammy Award nominations but won him global recognition. Over the years, akon has made over 300 guest appearances with world famous celebrities like Michael Jackson, Gwen Stefani and Eminem.

He sang the song, “Hold My Hand” with Michael Jackson. “Stadium” happens to be his most recent album, which was released in 2012. His hard work and talent does not stop at being a hip hop and R & B recording artist. He is also a great entrepreneur who started his very own clothing line, Konvict Clothing in 2007. Through his two successful record labels, KonLive Distribution and Konvict Muzik, he has helped many talented artists like T-Pain.

Apart from record producer, entrepreneur, recording artist, he has also songwriter and philanthropist to his name. To assist undeserved children, he set up the Konfidence Foundation. This foundation helps children who are located in both the US and Africa. Prior to embarking on his most recent campaign, Akon Lighting Africa Campaign, he was chosen by Pepsi to create and record the song “Oh Africa” for the 2010 World Cup, which was held in Africa for the very first time. Perhaps, it brought memories of his homeland and the need for electricity in homes all over the African continent.

But whatever the reason might be, his Akon Lighting Africa Campaign is meant to help an estimate of one million homes in terms of lighting. What is amazing about this campaign is that it does not focus on electricity generated by power plants but on free electricity obtained from the Sun. Plans are being made to install solar panels and other necessary equipment to generate free electricity in the homes.

Cosmic Gate

Cosmic Gate

Nic Chagall and Bossi are the two German DJs that form the duo Cosmic Gate, a popular trance duo based in Krefeld, Germany. The duo has been around since 1999 and has slowly been gaining popularity from there. The first single from Cosmic Gate was “The Drums,” followed by “Mental Atmosphere” and “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” – a mix using samples from the iconic movie “Wizard of Oz.” Cosmic Gate didn’t release their first full length album until 2001 where it had it’s first big single release of “Fire Wire” in the United Kingdom. “Fire Wire” was the song that helped the group really gain more popularity and remains one of their best known track to this day. In 2009, Cosmic Gate was named by DJ Magazine as one of artists on the Top 100 DJ poll. The duo came in at number 19 on the ranking.

When the duo started out, it was focused on harder edge trance, but as they have matured, they have softened a bit. The group focuses more on a more subtle, but still driving, style in the present day. With the most recent album, “Wake Your Mind,” released in 2011, the group looked to spread a message of what it describes as “border-free electronic music.” A single from Wake Your Mind, “Be Your Sound” scored Cosmic Gate an IDMA nomination in 2012. In 2013, the single “Flying Blind” from the same album was also nominated for an IDMA. After such an overwhelming response to Wake Your Mind the duo decided to release a multimedia Deluxe Edition in February of 2013.

The shift in sound and focus seems to have worked as Cosmic Gate continues to sell out shows all over the world to thousands of progressive trance and electronic music. The members of Cosmic Gate are true road warriors playing 100-300 nights a year and have, over the course of their musical career, played over 1,000 live shows.

The hashtag is pervasive on social media from fans of the duo and from attendees to the group’s live shows. To learn more you can visit the group’s Facebook page.

Dada Life

Dada Life

Dada Life

Sweedish producers Ollie Corneer and Stefan Engbloom joined forces to create the duo Dada Life. Embodying party pop and electro with their music, the duo carved out a niche by reflecting the absurd avant-garde Dada movement of the 1920’s with their interpretation of modern party-till-you-drop symbology and ideas. Their humor, visual imagery and nonsensical themes all help to make them memorable amongst a sea of similar artists.

Dada Life remains one of the biggest electronic acts in the world. They have remixed the likes of Martin Solveig, Benny Benassi, David Guetta, Madonna, Hardwell, Kaskade, Justin Beiber, and Major Lazer.

Dada’s early tunes like 2006’s “The Great Fashinista Swindle,” “The Great Smorgasbord” and 2007’s “Do the Dada” quickly established them as a unique, catchy act and earned their music a spot on dance floors around the world. In 2009, they released their first album, Just Do the Dada. Their crazy tour antics ensured a meteoric rise to fame, garnering internet attention when a copy of their tour rider was released. Dada demanded a backstage area full of champagne and bananas to be provided at every venue lest the group be forced to play a set of slower tech-house.

In 2010, they toured with Tiesto, remixed Chickenfoot and Kylie Minogue and collaborated to produce the hit “Tomorrow (Give In to the Night).” 2011 saw them headlining the Electric Daisy Festival in Los Angeles. With their new-found fame, they released the hit “Kick Out the Epic Motherf**cker” on their newly created So Much Dada label to commercial and critical success. Dada Life’s sophomore album, The Rules of Dada, dropped in October 2012 and soared to the top of the iTunes dance charts. Dada’s fall tour to support the album visited 40 cities and supposedly used over 8,000 lbs of bananas and some 3,000 bottles of champagne.

Dada Life’s distinct sound has drawn attention from both fans and critics alike. In a bid to showcase their unique production methodology and share their love of processed meat with the world, Dada Life released the Sausage Fattener plugin in 2012. This simple yet specialized distortion unit allows other producers to ‘thicken up’ sounds in their songs in order to achieve that patented Dada Life sound.

In 2013, Dada Life smashed the record for the world’s largest pillow fight in the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. Almost 4,000 fans participated in the event, which was certified by Guiness. Their antics didn’t end there, however — they submitted a petition to the United Nations asking that Dada Land, an imaginary country featured in the duo’s act, be recognized as a soverign nation. As a result, they were barred from leaving Sweeden temporarily during Miami Music Week. A hungry Miami crowd caused Dada’s appearance to be cancelled a second time when hungry fans smashed barricades and forced riot police to shut down Dada’s show.

Rumors on the internet have surfaced claiming that Stefan and Ollie were originally actors who played the bananas in Bananas in Pajamas. While this would make sense out of the group’s seemingly senseless obsession with bananas, Dada Life explains it differently. They claim that bananas are a perfect marriage of health and convenience. Naturally packaged to stay fresh, mess free and easy to eat, bananas pack a punch of potassium and other nutrients to keep the group going through a grueling set.




Zedd, born Anton Zaslavski, is a 24-year-old Russian-German electronic music product and DJ. The young DJ mostly focuses on electro house music, but has been known to branch out into other genres like progressive house, dubstep, and even the unlikely classical music.

Zedd’s first original release, “The Anthem,” was recognized by Beatport Electro House in its Top 20. The DJ is probably best know for his remix of Skrillex’s “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites” that hit number two on the Beatport Electro’s Top 10.

Zedd is well-known for his mixes of work from very famous artists like Justin Bieber, The Black Eyed Peas, and Lady Gaga. The remixes have gained him some serious attention. Lady Gaga even used a mix of her songs “Born this Way” and “Marry the Night” on the special studio edition of her album, “Born this Way.” Lady Gaga loved Zedd so much, she hired him to produce three songs on her 2013 album, “Artpop.” Skrillex has also taken advantage of Zedd’s talent at mixing and included Zedd’s single “Shave It Up” on the official Skrillex YouTube channel. The single was used as a 30-second teaser.

Zedd’s work caught some major attention including that of the label Interscope Records. The label signed Zedd in 2012 and shortly after released the debut single, “Spectrum.” At Interscope, Zedd was well respected for his producing skills. He co-wrote and produced the Justin Bieber hit “Beauty and a Beat” together with Max Martin. That song charted at number 5 in the United States, making it Zedd’s biggest hit to date. Zedd’s second biggest hit was “Clarity” featuring Foxes that hit number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 and number one on U.S. Hot Dance Club Songs.

Ryan Lewis

Ryan Lewis

Ryan Lewis

American DJ, producer, and musician Ryan Lewis has experienced recent success with Macklemore. He came out with two albums on his own: The VS. EP in 2009 and The Heist in 2012. Lewis met fellow musician and rapper artist Macklemore in 2006 via the social media network MySpace. Since that pairing Lewis has been the less visible partner in the successful duo that put out mega hits like “Thrift Shop,” “Same Love,” and “Can’t Hold Us.” Lewis is responsible for producing, recording, mixing, and engineering the tunes the two create together. Lewis and Macklemore’s relationship actually started out with Lewis taking photos for Mackelmore, but after spending a lot of time together they started collaborating on music.

Ryan Lewis’s 2009 album “The VS. EP” was a hip hop album that was heavily influenced by contemporary artists like Arcade Fire and the Red Hot Chile Peppers. “The VS Redux” followed soon after with some editing to address criticism of the first EP.

The due of Mackelemore & Ryan Lewis has experienced killer success in the past few years. Their biggest hit “Thift Shop” hit number one on the Billboard Top 100 Charts as well as the number one on Triple J’s Hottest 100 in 2012. The single sold seven million copies in just the United States alone. “Same Love” reached number 15 on the Hottest 100 of 2012 as well. “Same Love” was particularly well received by music fans and critics alike for its pro-LGBT message.

For live performances, Lewis mostly performed locally in Seattle from 2009 to 2011. When he partnered up with Macklemore, the duo began an international tour in 2011. Of those 27 tour dates, half of them completely sold out.

In 2014, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis performed “Same Love” at the Grammy Awards show and pulled a stunt for the history books. Queen Latifah appeared as a special guest. Latifah was sworn in by the state of California as a temporary commissioner so that she could marry 33 different couples – both same-sex and opposite sex – during the Grammy Awards ceremony. The video of the stunt quickly went viral and inspired a large group of people. It’s things like these that have gained Ryan Lewis and his partner Macklemore praise for helping to bring LGBT tolerance to hip hop music – and music as a whole.

The duo is on another international tour in 2014 including several festivals like the Hurricane Festival, the Chiemsee Festival, and the Highland Festival.




RL Grime – real name Henry Steinway – is a producer of electronic, hip hop, bass, and trap music from the United States. He makes music as part of WeDidIt – a Los Angeles based electronic music collective. The name RL Grime is a play on the name RL Stine, the author of the wildly popular children’s book series Goosebumps. Grime also does shows under the name Clockwork, but the music is a bit of a departure from RL Grime. This was a fact the DJ tried to keep secret, but the news eventually got out.

RL Grime got his start in music in college at Northwestern University and New York University where he majored in music business starting in 2009. In 2012, he moved back to his home town of Los Angeles.

Also in 2012, Grime joined the WeDidIt collective with three other Los Angeles born and based producers: Shlohmo, Groundislava, and D33J. WeDidIt had its own label which Grime produced his first EP on in 2012 called “Grapes.” The EP featured four original tracks from WeDidIt member Shlohmo as well as Salva and LOL Boys.

Some of Grime’s more notable work has included his remix of Kayne West’s song “Mercy.” Grime’s worked on the remix with producer Salva – who worked on the “Grapes” EP – and the song has received over two million plays on SoundCloud. Grimes had another big SoundCloud hit with an official remix of Benny Banassi’s iconic song “Satisfaction.” That remix charted on Beatport’s electro house chart in the top five and gained over one million listens on SoundCloud.

RL Grime worked with Salva again on his next EP titled “High Beams.” The EP was produced by Fool’s Gold Records and featured five tracks. Also working on the album was Los Angeles based rapper Problem. “High Beams” saw immediate response and debuted at number one on iTunes Electronic Charts and number eight on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic albums.

RL Grime spends a lot of time on the road touring and doing live shows. In 2013, Grime hit the road with another well-known producer in the genre, Bauer, throughout July and August. Joining them on that stint was fellow musicians Ryan Hemsworth and Jim-E Stack. RL Grime and long time collaborator Salva are hitting the road in 2014 hitting up places throughout the United States and Canada. It’s rumored that Grime is working on his next major release with the WeDidIt collective and that it will hit the charts some time in 2014.

Redfoo DJs Las Vegas Pool Parties and Nightclubs



Redfoo was born Stefan Kendal Gordy and is the youngest son of MoTown Record Company founder Berry Gordy, Jr. Although Redfoo wears many hats – DJ, record producer, musician, dancer, rapper – he is best known as one half of the electronic dance music rapper duo LMFAO. The other member of LMFAO is Redfoo’s nephew Skyblu.

Redfoo grew up in Los Angeles and attended Palisades Charter High School where he met some of his best friends to this day: Will.i.am and GoonRock. Redfoo formed the electropop duo LMFAO in 2006 with his nephew Skyblu. The duo worked on some demos and then Will.i.am introduced the group to Interscope Records’ head Jimmy Lovine. After hearing the demos from Will.i.am, Lovine signed LMFAO to the label. Neil Jacobson, the Interscope A & R and Will.i.am’s manager, describe the demos as so polished they could be turned immediately into an album without any additional production. The high quality of the demos attracted the label because it was essentially a turnkey deal for the label.

Redfoo and LMFAO released its first EP, “Party Rock EP,” in July of 2008. The first single from that EP, “I’m in Miami Bitch,” was a quick success hitting number 33 on the Billboard 200 and number two on the U.S. dance chart. Things started to happen for the group after the release of that EP. A little known DJ, DJ Inphinity, helped the duo reach new heights when he took the Silvio Ecomo’s remix of “Let the Bass Kick” from DJ Chuckie and the a cappella of LMFAO to make “Bass Kick in Miami.” The track exploded virally in 2009 and eventually went on to be the theme song to the E! reality show “Kourtney and Khloe take Miami.” The song was also used in the MTV reality show Jersey Shore in 2009.

Even with all the success in 2009, Redfoo and LMFAO would see even bigger things in 2010 and beyond. In 2010, LMFAO was featured in popular producer and DJ David Guetta’s “Getting Over You.” That track took LMFAO to international exposure breaking the top 10 in 11 different countries and hitting number one in three countries including the United Kingdom. In the United States, it wasn’t as big of a hit, but still reached number 31 on the Billboard Hot 100.

In 2011, the group’s second album “Sorry for Party Rocking” was released. Redfoo’s childhood friend GoonRock stepped in to help produce several of the tracks on the album. GoonRock helped produced the two biggest singles from the album, “Party Rock Anthem,” and “I’m Sexy and I Know It.” “Party Rock Anthem” hit number one on the United States Billboard charts and remains the duo’s biggest hit to date. It also hit number one in the United Kingdom, Canada, and over 10 other countries. That track featured Lauren Bennet from girl pop group Paradiso Girls and set off a dance craze of the Melbourne Shuffle which was featured in the music video.




Ne-Yo is the stage name for Shaffer Chimere Smith – the singer, songwriter, record producer, actor, and dancer. Ne-Yo came onto the scene initially as a songwriter. His big break came from writing the hit “Let Me Love You” for singer Mario in 2004. The single went double platinum in the United States and stayed at the number one spot on the charts for nine weeks. The success of “Let Me Love You” prompted a meeting for Ne-Yo with record label Def Jam’s head. That meeting inspired the label, led by then CEO Jay-Z, to offer Ne-Yo a recording contract.

Ne-Yo’s debut album, “In My Own Words,” was released in 2006 on the Def Jam label. The top single from “In My Own Words,” “So Sick,” hit number one on the United States charts. The debut album also spawned another top 10 hit with “Sexy Love.” The R&B singer-songwriter’s second album, “Because of You” released a number three U.S. hit with the title track in 2007. In 2008, Ne-Yo released his third album, “Year of the Gentleman.” The third album released spawned three more top 10 hits for Ne-Yo with “Closer,” “Mad,” and “Miss Independent.”

In 2010, Ne-Yo released his fourth studio album to critical acclaim, but commercial disappointment. The album debuted on the U.S. Billboard 200 at number nine and experienced less sales than any other album. The artist had a bit of a comeback with his fifth album R.E.D. in 2011 with its single “Let Me Love You (Until You Learn to Love Yourself)” that broke the U.S. top 10 charts.

Ne-Yo was born to two musician parents in Camden, Arkansas in 1982. When Ne-Yo was very young, his mother separated from his father and relocated the family to Las Vegas, Nevada in hopes to find better opportunities. In Las Vegas, Ne-Yo joined the R&B group called “Envy” and adopted to stage name “GoGo.” After the group disbanded in 2000, Ne-Yo was signed to Columbia Records, but the label dropped him before he was able to release his first album. After that Ne-Yo continued to write songs for other artists until his big break with “Let Me Love You” which R&B artist Mario recorded. Ne-Yo has written songs that were recorded by artists Marques Houston, Teedra Moses, Christina Millian, and the boy band Youngstown. Recently, Ne-Yo has written songs on the upcoming albums of Beyoncé Knowles, Cheryl Cole, Monica, Willow Smith, Mary J. Blige, and Alexandra Burke.

Martin Solveig

Martin Solveig

Martin Solveig, born Martin Laurent Picandet, is a French electro house DJ and producer. Based in Paris, Solveig produces killer percussion-heavy mixes that have won him worldwide acclaim.

As a child, Solveig was classically trained and involved in the boy’s choir Les Petits Chanteurs de Sainte-Croix de Neuilly (The Paris Boy’s Choir). There he was placed as a soprano soloist and started the foundation of his love and understanding of music. At age 18, he had his first few gigs at the Palace club in Paris that sparked his deep passion for the art. Soon after Solveig began playing regularly – a few nights a week – at local Paris establishments like Le Palace, Les Bains-Douches, L’Enfer, and Le Queen. As for mixing, Solveig started out piecing together disco classics with percussion in the African styles of Pedro Carnerio and Guem.

From the start, Solveig was quite passionate about his mixes, but really didn’t come into his own until he partnered up with his friend and mentor Claude Monnet. Monnet back Solveig to open his own label – which was named “Mixture.” The first piece that Solveig pulled together that really resonated with people was the track “Heart of Africa.” The percussive piece pulled from African influences – like the aforementioned Pedro Carnerio and Guem — and layered raging saxophone riffs over top. The result won Solveig peer acclaim from other electro artists like Frankie Knuckles, Joe Clausell, and Bob Sinclair.

After gaining some confidence from the response to “Heart of Africa,” Solveig began working on his first full-length album. The album, titled “Sur la terre” included “Heart of Africa” and other tracks like “I’m a good man,” “Someday,” and “Linda.” Like “Heart of Africa,” many of the other tunes had African or African-American influences. “I’m a good man,” for example, is an old-school soul track. “Sur la terre” was a worldwide critical success drawing the attention of some major players in the music biz. Because of the album, Solveig was introduced and ended up working with producers DJ Spen of the Basement Boys and Kenny Dope of Masters at Work. The album’s success also opened the door for Solveig to work with artists like Cunnie Williams and Solidiers of Twilight who recruited him to remix their work. Salif Keita also recruited Solveig to work on the track “Madan” which became a huge club hit in 2003.

In addition to creating music and touring, Solveig hosts a weekly radio show called “C’est La Vie” that is broadcast in multiple countries.

Manufactured Superstars

Manufactured Superstars

The electronic dance music DJ/production duo Manufactured Superstars is made up of two Denver, Colorado-based musicians: Bradley Roulier and Shawn Sabo. With these two musicians, a show attendee can always expect a high energy, flashy, exciting show. The pair is typically outfitted in matching, or complimenting, NASA space suits when performing live. In addition to wild outfits, Manufactured Superstars often is sharing the stage with a six-foot tall teddy bear. While the duo certainly has a sense of humor and a flair for the dramatic, that isn’t the Manufactured Superstars main appeal. This group performs high energy, technically complicated music that is still highly accessible to the masses – not an easy feat for any musician. Roulier and Sabo have been quoted saying their main philosophy is “We just wanna play great tunes and be the funnest DJs out there!”

Grammar rules aside it seems Manufactured Superstars have certainly achieved the goal of being the “funnest DJs out there.” The fun stage prescence and musical talent has made Manufactured Superstars a staple at festivals across the United States including Ultra Music Festival, Identity Festival, Electric Daisy Festival, Lief Festival, Miami Music Week, and Red Rocks Global Dance Festival. The group is well-known for it’s mash-up style and fast pace. It’s not unusual for the duo to play over 100 songs in a two-hour DJ set. The styles and genres will change quite a bit within just one set morphing from mainstream pop to underground house to electro and more within one set.

The group Manufactured Superstars was formed in 2006, but both Roulier and Sabo had been on the club scene since the 1990s. Roulier was a club promoter in Colorado and Sabo was a road-warrior drum-and-bass DJ that was traveling around the U.S. By the time Manufactured Superstars was formed Sabo already had 20 commercial vinyl drum-and-bass album releases. Roulier’s a entrepreneur outside of his club promoter and DJ career. He owns the Beta Nightclub in Denver, Colorado and is the co-founder of leading digital music retailer Beatport. The other half of Manufactured Superstars, Shawn Sabo was an early employee of Beatport and remains one to this day.

Outside of festivals, the duo has played a variety of high-profile gigs including a 2011 show at the Kennedy Space Center in Washington D.C. It was a private event for the launch of the Virgin Galactic space port. Manufactured Superstars is currently expanding their reach on podcast and satellite radio. The pair’s music is already heavily played on electronic stations worldwide.

He started listening to dance music and really caught a passion for it. Before long he was mixing tracks in his bedroom, away from prying ears and eyes. When he relocated to Malaysia for school, he joined the university radio station and continued his passion for playing and mixing music.

While at university in Malaysia, Maki formed a friendship with fellow student Herb. Herb was already an established DJ in the Malaysian night club scene and began teaching Maki the tricks of the trading.

Maki was quick to pick up the art of mixing. Not only did he have a natural talent for the art, he spent a lot of time acquiring an extensive knowledge of progressive house, electro house, and dirty dutch. Dirty dutch has been Maki’s favorite genre from the start and heavily influences his work still today. His extensive musical knowledge and his background helped Maki develop a wicked style of spinning not quite like anyone else. His talents were quickly noticed by local clubs and he was signed on by popular Malaysian club “Smokeez” as a resident DJ.

After gaining notoriety from his gig at Smokeez, DJ Maki started booking a lot more live gigs including beach parties, other clubs, and jungle parties. The huge festival Euphoria booked Maki on some of his last days in Malaysia.

DJ Jus-Ske was the concert DJ for Jay Z and Justin Timberlake’s co-headlining tour “Legends of the Summer.” The crazy and wild tour was great experience for DJ Jus-Ske. In an article on Miami.com, one particular night is outlined by the reporter on what DJ Jus-Ske’s experience was like on the tour stop in Miami. He was escorted in a black-out escalade limo to all points in the night including an after-party post-concert at the Mansion club. According to the report DJ Jus-Ske was partying with mega-stars like pop singer Rhianna, comedian Kevin Hart, producer and rapper Jermaine Dupri, recording artist and producer Timbaland, pop star Justin Bieber, NBA legend Lebron James, former NSync members Lance Bass and Chris Kirkpatrick, and of course Jay Z himself.

While DJ Jus-Ske works with a ton of high-profile celebrities, he told Miami.com that he doesn’t like the term “celebrity DJ” although it is often used to describe him.

Although his name hasn’t hit the status of David Guetta or Calvin Harris yet, there could still be big fame coming for DJ Jus-Ske soon. If not, he still has some serious credentials on his resume to be proud of.

Antoine Michelis a Swedish DJ whose stage name is AN21. He is a music producer as well and a brother to record label owner Steve Angello. He was born to a Greek father and Swedish mother in Athens, Greece.

Raised in Stockholm, Solna, AN21 loved the music industry since his childhood days, but at first, any club culture was unappealing to him. He got his first real DJ gig at a club when he was 16. Barely knowing what it means to be a DJ, he got an old fashioned Pioneer CDJ, bought a music mixer for 30 euros, borrowed Philip Jensen´s old Stanton player and practiced for 2 straight days. It was not quite the experience he was hoping for, as he expected something really good. That night turned to be so terrible that he got disappointed and decided to start his own club performances in Sweden.

Shortly after turning 18, he got an opportunity to perform in one of the famous Swedish night clubs. In all years that followed, he has been continuously getting his own club nights at famous prominent venues.

Throughout 2010, AN21 heated up the party air at the best venues and festivals in the world. The DJ featured invenues including Mysteryland, Ministry of Sound in London andGlobal Gathering, Pacha in Spain, Avalon in LA and Zouk in Singapore. He has also taken to the stage at Sensation Amsterdam, Prague and played the Size Matters stage at Tomorrowland. His massive remix of Pendulum’s ‘The Island’ alongside Max Vangeli and brother Steve Angellowas was named the hottest track in the world by Zane of Radio One and reached Number 3 in global Beatport chart.

Where 2010 provedAN21’s essential starting grounds, the year 2011 profusely saw his enigmatic studio output taken to a whole new era of popularity. Actually, it was a crazy year for the young Swedish. The Top one hundred DJ Poll made his name to appear in the list for the top five DJs to watch in 2011. He also got nominated as the “Breakthrough DJ” at the IDMAs-International Dance Music Awards. In his discography there are popular hits such as “People of the Night” (Mixes), “Valodja”, “Gama”, “Swedish Beauty” and “Flonko”.

But where his reputation as the eclectic club connoisseur is undoubtful, the debut album alongside his friend Max Vangeli made 2012 his most memorable year to date. He mixed CD 2 of the successful ‘Size Matters’ album and worked on an album of original tracks, featuring collaborations with Tiesto and Steve Angello. The duos presented a full-length debut which collected a host of various friends from highly assorted musical backgrounds that created the fresh blend of House music. After launching a huge new single at Miami Music Week, the album, ‘People of the Night’ followed on Size with a worldwide tour of the same name being announced.

As the venues continue to grow bigger, his sound’s emotive capabilities grow stronger. AN21 has a decent stance on melodically tuned anthems, worthy of the weight being carried in his every musical maneuver. Yet armed with a great vision for a moment in making studio manipulations, the nocturnal champion’s reign upon the genre which he and part of his family siblings at Size Records have pioneered from the outset certainly remains supreme.

Adrian Luxe

Adrian Lux

Adrian Lux

Adrian Lux born in 1 May 1986 and whose official name is Prinz Adrian Johannes Hynne is a swedish DJ as well as a music producer. He is actually based in Stockholm and he is signed under the Ultra Records where he released his debut single “Strawberry”. Lux is a member of the La Vida Locash Movement and many music enthusiasts and lovers have hailed him that he is an immediate successor to Eric Prydz.

Adrian has released tracks such as “Can’t Sleep” and “Teenage Crime” and his music has been demonstrated and even remixed by many popular DJs including Style of Eye, Avicii, Ali Payami, Philgood, Anxwel and Marcus Schössow. He himself has been able to remix other artists’ songs. Adrian has done remixes for Basement Jaxx, Oskar Linnros, Salem Al Fakir and Deborah Cox.

Among Lux’s most celebrated achievements is his nomination to the Grammy Awards (2011). Just after the Grammy Awards, he came back with a smash hit, “Boy” featuring prominent vocals from Fiona and Rebecca. “Boy” is somewhat similar to “Strawberry” in various aspects. On the same year, he embarked on various festival tours to Ibiza, Beyond Wonderland and Ultra Music Festival.

A former fashion photographer and punk rocker raised Adrian Lux in Stockholm and he would acclaim Adrian’s love to music. “He was a very active boy from an early age and he devoted his time mostly in artistic staff. If he was not playing guitar, Lux would have been busy landing modelling gigs for such popular campaigns as “Stockholm’s answer to Barney” and the Swedish Postal Service “Nordiska Kompaniet”. However, during all this time he had not taken music seriously until when he was 17. It is the same year his friends began to use their secondary “gymnasium” education in the pretence of building up hip-hop beats for him. Dipset and Dancehall were his obsessions at that time, although, his obsessions took a new turn when he made a trip to Brazil after successfully graduating.

Lux explained that when he stepped in Brazil, the music there was totally different from what he expected. He felt that the music in Brazil was somehow better. He even attested that he was not able to hear Samba music more than 5 times he arrived there but he found that everybody was into cool electronic staff. He simply meant everything from electro to drum and bass was just cool not to mention traces of moonlit, techno and house music.

Adrian just found himself gravitated to the type of dance and music that triggers long time memories. This perhaps, made him produce his own single “Strawberry” which is a sun-stroked mix of various melodies and laser guided synth lines.

Talking of “can’t Sleep”, it has a perfect beat propelled by a chorus that calls to mind the peak hour records of Tiësto, Kaskade and Deadmau5. That is why Ingrosso, Pete Tong and Basement Jaxx are strong supporters of Lux’s music and beats. Lux is remembered saying that he likes to provoke reaction whether it is positive or not.

Recently, Adrian Lux channelled back to his hip-hop roots on a “Rapclash Remix” of “Strawbery” it begins and ends in M.I.A approved rymes of Rye Rye. It is being played on rotation by most Swedish radio stations after hearing its praises on a blog.

The Dutch electronic dance music duo W & W get their name from the letter “w” in the two members names: Willem van Hanegem and Wardt van der Harst (also known by the stage name Re-Ward). Willem is the son of the famous Dutch football player with the same name. The group defines their of mix of trance, electro, and house as “big room trance with a techy edge.”

The two fellows met by chance in 2007 at the Trance Energy festival run by event production company ID&T. Willem and Wardt instantly hit it off an began making music right away. Their first tracks were “Show My Shuffle,” “Stab My Speaker,” “Ensure,” and “Origin.” One of the first releases from W & W, “Mustang,” was an instant hit. Famous DJs like Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, and Sander van Doorn took a liking to the track and began playing it regularly. The next year at Trance Energy 2008, the same festival at which Willem and Wardt met, Sander van Doorn played the hit track “Mustang.” The crowd’s response was so impressive W & W decided to start DJing as well.

After taking up DJing, W & W were quick to get booked at impressive gigs. The pair has played at the A State of Trance 400 gigs, Poland’s Sunrise Festival, and even with their celebrity DJ supporter Tiesto at a spot in Kiev. Just three years after meeting, and two after their first track was played at the event, W & W was booked and brought back to play at Trance Energy 2010 – where it all began.

More recently, W&W was ranked number 14 on the DJ Mag Top 100 list. In 2013, the duo participated in Miami Music Week and a world tour with ASOT600 that ended in a sold out show at the iconic Madison Square Garden. The year 2013 saw W&W break a record when they became the first electronic dance music group to play at a Major League Baseball stadium when they over took the Philadelphia Phillies’ stadium for an impressive two-hour show.

In 2014, W&W launched the new album “Big Foot” in February. Throughout the coming year, the group will be celebrating that album with a tour and a brand new residency in Las Vegas at Hakkasan. In addition to making and playing music, W&W has their own label, “Mainstage Music” and a growing weekly podcast “Mainstage Podcast.”



Twin sisters Miriam Nervo and Olivia Nervo are the two members of songwriting and musician group NERVO. The pair also often go by the nicknames of Mim and Liv. The pair are the first sister group of electronic dance music. Voted number 16 on DJ Magazine’s “Top 100 DJs” poll by the fans, NERVO is the all-time top-ranking female DJs in the world.

The twins, raised in Melbourne, Australia, were first noticed by the Australian modeling agency Chadwick Models Agency at the young age of 16. Although modeling was their first entry into the entertainment world, the sisters always wanted to pursue music. Both sisters were accepted into Opera Australia Academy, but declined in order to pursue a career as a duo on their own.

Early on, the sisters showed their strength as songwriters and were signed to the Sony Label. Their first success was with the song “Negotiate with Love” that was performed by British pop star Rachel Stevens. The track hit number 10 on the United Kingdom music charts in 2005. While at Sony the sisters ended up writing for artists like Kesha, The Pussycat Dolls, Ashley Tisdale, and Richard Grey.

At the end of their contract with Sony, NERVO was feeling dissatisfaction with their experience at the major label and switched to the independent Swedish publisher Razor Boy in 2008. The move turned out in their favor when the publisher introduced NERVO to Kelly Rowland – formerly of pop super group Destiny’s Child – and arranged a writing session. The result of that session was the song “When Love Takes Over” that Rowland released with DJ David Guetta. That song hit number one on the dance charts all over the world and was ranked number one dance pop collaboration of all time by Billboard. The song also went on to win a Grammy award for the Nervo sisters.

In 2010, NERVO released the club single “This Kind of Love” through the indie UK label, Loaded Records. “This Kind of Love” hit number one on several world club charts as well as number two on the Music Week club charts and number six on the Music Week pop charts, making it one of NERVO’s biggest hits of their career.

In addition to Kelly Rowland, NERVO has worked with a long list of top-tier celebrity musicians. The pair did work on albums for Britney Spears, Kylie Minogue, Cheryl Cole, Armin van Buuren, and Sophie Ellis-Baxter. Kelly Rowland had the twins come back to do work on her third studio album which was self-titled.

Being inspired by Tiesto, who was also born in Breda, Hardwell soon became extensively known all across the country and on the continent.

Musical Career

Hardwell had a strong remixing debut in 2006, when his own unique version of the Underdog Project’s “Summer Jam” was released. However, it wasn’t until two years later when he finally gained recognition, due to his amazing “Show me Love vs Be” mix. One year later, in 2010, Hardwell created his own record label, known under the name of Revealed Recordings. Soon after that, he launched his first album, Hardwell presents Revealed. In March 2011, he even launched his own podcast and radio show, Hardwell on Air. His show is currently being broadcasted on several international radio stations.

Hardwell’s top hit is considered by many the result of his collaboration with Tiesto. Together, they composed the well-famed single “Zero 76”. This is one of the biggest club mixes ever. If you haven’t watched this mix yet, you can follow this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wfR0waKcuA0&feature=kp.

Kicking off in 2013 with a Canadian and North American tour, he visited tens of cities all across the East and West Coast and has consolidated his position as one of the hottest DJs of the moment.

Bingo Players

Bingo Players DJ

Bingo Players

Bingo Players are a Dutch-based DJ/producer duo, made up ofPaul Bäume (aka Christian) and Maarten Hoogstraten (Marchand,Break Mechanic). They started to release house singles and remixes as Bingo Players back in 2006. They had a debut on the Techtone label with the Sonic Stomp EP. With time, they developed a pared-down sound that became layered, reliant and rush-inducing upon some great vocal samples. Their more known releases in 2010 and 2011 included “When I Dip” (Freak Nasty’s “Da’ Dip”), “Tom’s Diner” – sampling Suzanne Vega’s song in a hit DNA version, and “Cry (Just A Little)” (Brenda Russell’s “Piano in the Dark”).

Back in the year 2008, Bingo Players were experiencing a greataftermath of theirTony Flexx and UHM – “Our House” remix. The decent cooperation with the one Chocolate Puma on their legendary label Rhythm, “Touch Me” got released and soon gained extensive support all over. As if that was not enough, it as well hit Beatport’s chart number 1 position. The “Touch Me” hit then appeared on different compilations including Sensation Whiteand Defected in the House.
2009 saw the collaboration with Puma on a single – the “Disco Electrique” – which shot to number two in Beatport Chart. Internationally referred as “hot from Holland” the Bingo’s year was marked by incredible bookings in best clubs worldwide along with frequent appearances at prominent international festivals like the Creamfields in the UK.

By the time Maarten and Paul hit the year 2010, there was a local and international audience that did line up in order to watch them on stage, when packing out the prominent clubs almost everywhere. As they toured around the world, they played at several of the best gigs around, among them Creamfields Australia and UK, Dance Valley, Nocturnal Festival LA, Tomorrowland Belgium and Mysteryland Holland. All these venues witnessed one thing: party rocking, hands up DJs who fired up the crowd.

Still, their Beatport postion one for ‘up and comers’ was firmly placed as the main stayers. Near the end of that year, another Bingo Players brainchild got born, enabling them to release hit tracks under the new flag and label, ‘Hysteria’. This allowed them to offer an effective platform to the newly discovered talent, that was just but one of their other ambitions.

Early on, Paul and Hoogstraten lit up Beatport charts with huge tracks including the 2011 hit “Cry – Just A Little” and most recently with the hot track, “Out Of My Mind”. The duo did not stop at just producing some hit records as well as touring the world; they still run their own label. Bingo Players kicked off 2013 scoring a worldwide top ten hit with the single “Get Up (Rattle)”, which was a number one single in the United Kingdom for two weeks in a row. This came after their original version of the Rattle shook up European charts for about nine weeks during 2012.

With a great appetite for anything that is music, Bingo Players seemed unstoppable and had a whole new series of hit-songs lined up. Remixes for the well known Cobra and Flo Rida Starship left the studio while their own “Rattle” was a top ten smash and received support from many people, among them being the likes of David Guetta, Kaskade and Laidback Luke. Along with their recording success, Bingo Players have over thirty worldwide music festivals under their belts including Stereosonic and Tomorrowland. They have performed at key US festivals including Electric Zoo, Ultra and a primetime slot at Electric Daisy Carnival, Vegas.

Danny Avilla

Danny Avilla

Spanish DJ Danny Avilla may only be still a teenager, but he has already made a name for himself in the electronic dance music industry. The son of a club owner, Danny Avilla has received full support from his father to pursue a career in electronic and club music.

Avilla has been DJing from the young age of 12 and began producing music at just 13. The teenage DJ earned money by playing friends birthday parties and other private events and then used the money to purchase bargain equipment for producing. At just 14 years old, Avila did the unthinkable and moved away from everything and everyone he ever knew in the resort town of Marbella in Spain and moved to Madrid. In Madrid, Avila turned his focus to booking as many club gigs as possible. Because of his young age, Avila had his older brother talk to club promoters for him and help him get his foot in the door. Once club owners and promoters witnessed his live performances, Avila started to build a solid reputation for the strong electronic musician he is. Says Avila, “I knew it was going to be hard, but there was just nowhere for me to get any real experience playing out in Marbella and I’ve never let my age stop me doing anything. My older brother spoke to local promoters for me and that’s how I started getting my very first gigs.”

While playing a warm up set at Benidorm’s Ku Club, Avila met DJ megastar Fedde le Grand. Grand was completely blown away by Avila’s talent and style. Avila’s ability to read a crowd, and his unique music choices that spanned far outside of the Beatport 100, inspired Grand to recommend Avila to his management company Sushi 3000. Sushi 3000 recognized Avila’s immense talent and took Grand’s recommendation to sign Avila immediately.

Because of his age, Avila has set a lot of firsts for the youngest DJ in clubs. He was the youngest DJ to ever earn a residency in the history of Pacha. He was the youngest DJ to ever earn a residency at the beach club Blue Marlin and the dance club Space in Ibiza. In 2013, Avila signed a contract with MGM Grand and became the youngest person to ever earn a residency at the world famous, and world’s largest, club Hakkasan. The list of residents at Hakkasan is star studding and includes DeadMau5, Steve Aoki, Tiesto, Laidback Luke, Calvin Harris, and Tommy Trash.




Mention the name Nick van de Wall to most people, and you’ll probably get a blank response. However, mentioning the name Afrojack – van de Wall’s alter-ego and one of the most celebrated dance music producers in the world – and it’ll probably be a different story. Ranked at number seven on Forbes magazine’s list of the world’s highest paid DJs in the world, Afrojack has remixed tracks for some of the most iconic superstars in the world – think Madonna, Beyonce, Lady Gaga and Pitbull. Afrojack has a unique talent that enables him to shift genres at a moment’s notice, and although he made his name in the underground, he can create commercial beats and baselines that can fill dance-floors across the globe. Still only in his late twenties, the Dutch DJ has a bright future ahead of him.

Born in the town of Spijkenisse, Afrojack started off by releasing with a number of underground productions, slowly making a name for himself on the electronic dance music circuit. His big break came in 2011 when he released the global club smash ‘Take Over Control’, which sold in excess of 1,000,000 copies in the United States alone. He set up his own record label, entitled ‘Wall Recordings’, where he signed a number of unique and talented dance music artists. He later signed a deal for an annual residency at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, which saw him perform over a dozen times a year at the hotel chain’s Tryst, XS, Surrender and Encore Beach Club.

His remix credits include ‘Revolver’, the second single to be taken off Madonna’s ‘Celebration’ album, a career-spanning retrospective set which included the biggest hits of her thirty-year career and two new tracks. The single featured Lil’ Wayne and was a hit on the Billboard club charts. Other remixes include ‘Run the World (Girls)’, taken from Beyonce’s fourth album, 4, and ‘Collide’, an international smash hit for the British singer Leona Lewis. Arguably his biggest hit to date came in 2011, when he produced and co-wrote the international smash ‘Give Me Everything’ for Pitbull and Ne-Yo, which sold in excess of 8 million copies around the world, and became an instant fixture on radio playlists. The song reached the number one position on both the Billboard Hot 100 singles charts, and the UK singles charts. He has headlined the Electric Daisy Carnival, playing to 300,000 party-revelers from around the world, as well as Tomorrowland in Belgium, Coachella, and the Ultra Music Festival.

Afrojack embarked on his ‘Jacked’ tour, exposing a number of new artists to electronic dance music fans. His documentary web-series, entitled ‘March of the Afrojack’ was also a huge hit, garnering a loyal fanbase.

Allessandro Lindblad is a young man of 22 years whose dream to become a star in DJing and production has just blossomed. He was born on July 7, 1991. He is Swedish by birth and boasts a first acquaintance with music at the tender age of 7. He is fondly known as Alesso and he has a broad fan base with recommendations of the likes of Madonna and the reputable Sebastian Ingrosso. He rose to stardom within a time span of 5 months. Thankfully, he brought with him a very exhilarating genre of music not to mention his music production and remix prowess. The industry is rich because he is around.

His major breakthrough as he was trying to penetrate the music industry was when Sebastian Ingrosso accepted his music and acknowledged that there was potential in the then 19 year old. It is alleged that Alesso was a regular at a coffee shop that Alesso’s girlfriend used to frequent. He thus purposed to pass along a CD so that Mr. Sebastian could listen to his tracks. Mr. Sebastian was so jazzed with this collection that he immediately offered to work with Alesso. This casual but life changing moment was what has led to the rise and rise of the International DJ who has since acquired a reputation in the great league circles. He is rated among Avicci, Tiesto, and David Guetta only to name a few.

Since then, Alesso has produced some of the greatest jam mixes of all time. The first that made it to the charts was “pressure’ which put him in the 70th position in DJ Mag’s top 100 DJs in 2011. This was quite a conquest considering that he was just new in the industry. In 2012, he garnered the 20th position in the same magazine jumping up 50 positions. In 2013, he rose up to the 13th position rating in the top 100 DJ’s. His greatest motivation is to see his fans having fun. He is quoted as saying that it does not matter if his audience is a 10 man show or as big as 100,000; that he is content to see them genuinely having fun. His inspiration however is all tied with the Swedish Mafia House; He attributes his great love for electronic music to their earliest collections. Other jams that he is famed for include; Calling (Lose My Mind) and Years. These fall in the singles category and he collaborates with other artists of similar rating to produce a very distinct type of music. He has worked with Joia Records, Refune Records and Phazing Records. Alesso’s greatest collection however is in his remixes. He has made many remixes with the songs of these popular artists: Avicci, Swedish House Mafia, and David Guetta amongst others.

Alesso is a force to reckon with and other DJ’s ought to up their game if there is to be any real competition in the industry. He seems to have brought a totally new perspective into the game; that if you want prosperity and success in a totally flooded field, then try out a different angle from the rest. Try out new ideas. Be bold and grab that opportunity when it presents itself.




Axel Christofer Hedfros (born December 18th, 1977), better known as Axwell, is a Swedish remixer, record producer, DJ, and record label owner. He was one third of the super group dubbed Swedish House Mafia (SMH) along with Steven Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso. Being a member of this internationally known group made him one of the most well known producers world over. So much so that DJ magazine placed him at 19th in the Top 100 DJs from across the world in 2013.

Early life

Axwell’s interest in music became manifest at an early age, having learnt how to play drums by age nine. At age thirteen, he exchanged his drums for a computer in an effort to create each element of his music independently.


Axwell however commenced his career in the late 90s with his 1st single being Funkboy back in 1999. In 2002 he started moving up in the producer world, even collaborating with different artists. Consequently, the music world began recognizing his songs, which prompted most DJs across the world to begin using his music in their sets. As a result of this great exposure, his recognition increased. He rose to even much higher prominence in 2004 following the release of Feel the Vibe, which became a global hit. This hit peaked at no.1 in UK Dance Singles Chart & no.16 in the UK Singles Chart in 2005.

Also leading the way has been Mambana, Axwell’s collaboration with Isabel Fructuoso. Since 2002 they have released 3 tracks under Soulfuric Recordings. Their debut single, No Reason, became a hit in all the Buzz charts and was even used by top DJs (Danny Rampling, Little Louie Vega and Ben Watt) in their sets. The duo later released Felicidad and Libre with the latter being licensed to more than twelve different territories and featuring on compilations that sold more than five hundred thousand copies.

Now that his name was out there, Axwell could work with more high profile producers and clientele alike. He produced remixes for other popular artists including Nelly Furtado (Promiscuous), Usher (Burn), Madonna (Jump) and Pharrel (Angel) etc. Axwell has worked for various labels and artists that produced many chart-topping singles. I found U (ft Max’C) & It’s True were some of his most popular singles during that time.

Axwell’s lifetime breakthrough came after he teamed up with Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso to form the popular Swedish House Mafia (SHM) group. This super group has released some of the biggest songs since 2010 and its popularity has increased tremendously. It produces top quality songs and upon Swedish House Mafia tracks being released, many other artists begin remixing those tracks to suit their style. Axwell, in essence, has become a trend setter.

Following SHM’S farewell, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso (former member) announced their new club-night in Ibiza, termed Departures.

In 2013, Axwell’s new-single Center of the Universe was released on Beatport—where it reached number one. The follow up single I Am (ft Taylr Renee) was released on 16th September and also reached number 1.

Grammy awards

Axwell’s remix, In My Mind, was nominated for the 55th Grammy-Awards under Best Remixed Recording, Non Classical category in 2013.

Swedish House Mafia’s Don’t You Worry Child was also nominated under the Best Dance Recording category in 2013.

Avicii had been producing music for only a few months when his friends had noticed his extraordinary talent in creating professional sounding tracks, and they had actually just seen, first hand, the birth of a fantastic talent. He began with a remix of the Commodore 64 game’s music for “Lazy Jones”, and decided to quit producing it when he decided it would be better for him to create his own track, “Lazy Lace” instead. It was released promptly afterwards with Strike Recordings.

Avicii, in his state of sheer fascination with regards to producing spent countless hours working away in his home studio. He’d create tune after tune, relentlessly pumping out great sounding tracks. He never attempted to tie himself in with a certain sub genre within house music, but he did intend to keep his productions up with the times and to maintain innovation. His music took inspiration from groups and solo artists such as Daft Punk, Steve Angello and Laidback Luke. He went on to release his first big track, “Manman”, in April of 2008 after he won the Pete Tong Fast Trax, receiving a highly impressive 70% of every vote. After this release he noticed he was being contacted by a large array of labels, booking agencies and promoters that were all fighting for him from every corner of the world. Laidback Luke had even mentioned him on his MySpace page, saying that he’d left “many contesters behind in the dust”. He went on to congratulate Avicii on his amazing success and wished him luck with his future career.
He’d always wanted to create great music for people to listen to and love, whether they’re at a nightclub or sat in their computer chair at home. He put a particularly strong emphasis on his melodies within his productions, and sought to appeal to fans from a wide range of house sub genres. In May of 2008, Avicii signed on to “At Night Management”. In just a months time the buzz around him had begin to spread massively, and they gained recognition from big labels such as Ministry of Sound, Vicious Grooves and Joia Records. At the end of that initial month, he’d signed a big record deal with the Australian label, Vicious Grooves. That began the initial popularity explosion around the artist.

Avicii’s currently making appearances on selected international DJ gigs, but other than that he lives his life in the studio, consistently experimenting with different sounds to improve original tracks and also just to better himself as a producer.

Recently, the young 19 year old artist has been incredibly busy with his studio work. His first single, the Sound of Now, his EP off the shelf, D.O.N.S remixes, Jose Nunez as well as Roger Sanchez, Livin Joy, Little Boots, Phonat and so many more are all examples of his dedication to his profession. Along with the production of his own released, Avicii had broke ground back in 2009 with his original, Ryu. It was his third release, and it charted just 2 weeks prior to its release on Pete Tong’s Essential Mix. A week after that, it was given the crown of “This Week’s Essential New Tune” as well as being given Tiesto’s Club Life “Track of the Week” title. The track had reached Beatport’s worldwide sales Top 20 practically straight away, and has stuck on the Top 30 list for more than 4 weeks.

In 2009, Avicii has taken up a slightly new approach with his powerful vocal collaborations, as well as his trademark high-energy production style. He’s basically introduced a whole new sound to the House scene, and he’s paving the way forward for modern House.

One of his biggest gig moments in the past was at WMC, when he played at Laidback Luke’s “Superyou & Me” party with Laidback Luke himself. Kanye West’s DJ, A-Trak, Chocolate Puma, Bart B more and other artists had all been immensely impressed by the young artist’s performance and especially with his ability to read and understand the crowd. Avicii went on to play at another WMC event, playing with Philgood along with a large selection of artists, such as Denis The Menace, Arno Cost and Big World.
Avicii has received a great amount of support from the industry, even though he’s only at the start of his career. Tiesto, Laidback Luke, Axwell, Dirty South and Pete Tong are just a few of the big names that have commended his progress and natural musical ability.

Eric D-Lux

Eric D-Lux


Eric D-Lux is a SKAM Artist residing in the Los Angeles area where he was born and raised. He plays often around Los Angeles, but also holds residencies at several clubs in Las Vegas. Eric DLux most famous work was the co-writing of LMFAO and Lil Jon’s huge club hit, “Shots.”


DJ D-Lux is a part of the SKAM artist group and most often is paired up with fellow DJ Big Syphe. Both artists began getting into music at a very young age and had already dove into the DJing and electronic music scene by the time they were in their teens. Each was scrounging up what money they could to pull together DJ equipment like turntables, speakers, headphones, etc. While in high school Eric D-Lux and Big Syphe met by chance when they were both booked at the same club. Their similar backgrounds and passion for the art made them quick friends and partners. Immediately the two went to work together in the studio and started DJing together at Los Angelese night clubs.


In 2001, Big Syphe was hired by the Power 106 street team. Soon after in 2002 Eric DLux joined as well.  The two worked the street team and continued to work within the mix tape and party break scene. Eric DLux and Big Syphe’s “Buko Breaks” Vol 1-3 picked up steam and started to receive serious play across the country. After receiving so much positive attention, Hollywood superstar Pamela Anderson asked the pair to do a mixed tape hosted by her. That mixed tape gained instant recognition and was talked about many places including MTV, XXL Magazine, and the National Enquirer. Power 106 superstars Mr. Choc and DJ E-man asked Eric DLux and Big Syphe to be special guest DJs on their summer jump-off mix. The partners were more than ecstatic for the opportunity and jumped at the chance.


Eric DLux and Big Syphe continued to do jump-off mixes for three months. Eventually Power 106 asked the duo to do live mixes. The partners were so excited to be mixing live on the radio they wouldn’t let anything stop them. They kept a crazy work schedule and often would be coming straight into the radio studio straight from a late night club gig at two, three, or five in the morning. Eventually, the two were asked to turn in a jock-check to APD and their bosses loved it and made them into radio personalities.


Now the two host a weekly Saturday Night Show and throughout the weekdays from 3-7 pm and periodically at the New @ Two slot. The pair can now be seen performing live at underground DJ gigs around the country.



DJ Vice


Vice is a DJ well-known across the United States. He holds residencies in multiple U.S. cities including Miami, Las Vegas, New York, and his native town of Los Angeles. DJ Vice attributes his nearly 20-year success in the business to his love of the art. On his page he explains,  “I love what I do. There’s no part of me that wakes up and is like ‘Dang. I have to go to work.’ To still have that newness driving me is a good thing.”


Vice discovered the thrill of spinning records the very young age of 12 after purchasing his very first set of turntables. He caught the bug for music from his older brother and sister who played it frequently when he was around. The young Vice would steal records from his sister like Blondie, Madonna, Depeche Mode, and Air Supply. He would then mix it with records he took from his brother like the Cure and Morrissey.


Vice still dips into his old repertoire from his childhood and mixes it with more current tracks in his live shows. This mix of old and new sets Vice apart from most DJs in the scene who are always using the most current songs available. DJ Vice has been a house DJ, a club DJ, a wedding DJ, and a radio DJ which brings a varied style to his performances now. That varied background gives Vice his unique style that sets him apart from other DJs. He continually plays across all genres.


In 1998, Vice got his big break when he was hired on by Power 106 to mix live on the air. The DJ enjoyed the challenge of broadcasting live with no ability to correct mistakes or go back to perfect something. At Power 106 DJ Vice brought in 1.6 million listeners. The live sets working purely with vinyl sharpened Vice’s skills.

DJ Five


DJ Five has a love for tables. He can always be found standing behind them whether it is his turntables or a poker table. It comes as no surprise that DJ Five calls Las Vegas home, considering the abundance of both those kind of tables.


DJ Five grew up in Cerricitos, California and eventually move on to become one of Sin City’s premiere DJs. The DJ is well known for DMC-like turntables skills and his shockingly extensive hip-hop music knowledge. This mix of skills has helped DJ Five grow his career and status as one of the top DJs playing Las Vegas today. These talents grabbed the attention of Las Vegas’s LAS VEGAS LIFE MAGAZINE, a publication that named DJ Five the number one DJ in 2004. When asked how he reached such heights as a DJ, DJ Five responded with an explanation about his multitasking skills “I can smoke, drink, text message, dance, mix, and cut all at once.”


DJ Five’s prowess has taken him to performances at hot spots across the U.S. in major cities like New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Beyond his cross country touring, DJ Five is a regular at all the hottest clubs in Las Vegas like Tao, The Bank, and Hyde at the Bellagio.


A decades long love affair with hip-hop started when DJ Five became inspired by DJ Jazzy Jeff’s Live at Union Square. DJ Five has a unique talent of being able to stay true to his hip-hop roots and maintain street cred while still keeping up with the trends of what’s happening in the genre. He gained a wealth of knowledge about rock and pop music from his early days playing in Las Vegas clubs. This knowledge helped him move through the evolution of hip-hops transformation into mainstream culture. The group continues to rock crowds and parties across the U.S.


On his travels, DJ Five was introduced to other talented DJs and soon formed a super group with other bandmates Vice, Grahm Funke, OB-one, Cobra, and StoneRokk. Together the DJs formed the Abe Froman Showmen. The group’s purpose was to help restore some respect to the profession by promoting competent mixing, creative programing, and good music to the heart of DJing. The group’s formation was in part to “celebrity DJs” that the group felt were all flash and no substance and were tainting the image of real talented DJs.

Calvin Harris

When Calvin Harris was stacking shelves in British supermarket chain Marks and Spencer when he was in teens, little did he know that within just a few years he would be one of the world’s highest paid DJs and producers, playing to sell-out crowds all around the world. His rise to fame has been lightening-fast, but his achievements are been based on hard work and talent. Harris skipped the usual route of working his way up from the clubs on an indie label and instead posted his own music on his MySpace page. He quickly caught the attention of label bosses from EMI and since then his career has gone from strength-to-strength, having produced material for artists as diverse as Dizzee Rascal, Florence and the Machine and Kylie Minogue.

Born in 1984 in the Scottish city of Dumfries, Harris says that he was first attracted to dance music when he was a child, recording his own demos in his bedroom. Two songs recorded during this period – ‘Brighter Days’ and ‘Da Bongos’ – were included on an EP released by the label Prima Facie in the early 2000s. Back then, Harris went under the name Stouffer, and his music consisted of hard electro beats and pulsating baselines. He moved to London shortly after, where he continued to record music, posting songs on his MySpace and gradually developing a loyal fan following. After signing to EMI, he released his debut album ‘I Created Disco’ in 2007, which was a huge success in the United Kingdom, spawning two Top Ten singles. The catchy and irresistible ‘Acceptable in the 80s’ received critical and commercial acclaim, as did ‘The Girls’, another dance-floor filler popular on the British club scene.

Calvin Harris has toured around the world with a live band, and has become one of the most popular remixers of the last decade. He has remixed singles for All Saints, Groove Armada and Jamiroqui, and produced a number of songs for Kylie Mingoue’s album ‘X’, which was released in 2007. His biggest smash yet came in the form of ‘Dance Wiv Me’, a rap-enthused club anthem which saw Harris collaborating with the talented British rapper Dizzee Rascal. The song was an instant hit – reaching number one on the UK singles charts. Calvin Harris quickly became one of the most popular acts to see live, appearing at a number of festivals across Europe. He scored his second number one song, entitled ‘I’m Not Alone’ in 2009, which was taken from his album ‘Ready for the Weekend’ – which also hit the top spot in the United Kingdom. The album also made waves Stateside, peaking at number 12 on the Billboard Dance/Electronic Chart, exposing Harris to American audiences. Some of the most unlikely superstars were soon sampling his tracks – Madonna paid homage to ‘I’m Not Alone’ on her Sticky and Sweet World Tour in a mash-up with her late-90s smash hit ‘Frozen’, taken from the critically acclaimed ‘Ray of Light’.

In 2011, Harris worked on singles for Example and Tinchy Stryder, two of the UK’s most popular acts. However, it wasn’t until his production work on the song ‘We Found Love’ that Harris truly found global fame. The song was the first to be released off Rihanna’s album ‘Talk That Talk’ and was an instant smash, hitting number one on the UK and US charts, as well as in countries across the globe. The song is often cited as one of the most popular and critically-acclaimed dance tracks of the last decade, and provided both artists with career milestones. Rihanna has performed the song numerous times at concerts and on live television, including the Brit Awards, Grammy Awards and the closing ceremony of the 2012 Paralympic Games in London.

Reviewers described Harris’ most recent album ’18 Months’ as a sort of greatest hits collection, with a number of successful hit singles making up the bulk of the track-listing. Alongside the monster smash ‘We Found Love’, Harris recorded ‘Bounce’ with Kelis, ‘I Need Your Love’ with Ellie Goulding, and ‘Sweet Nothing’ with Florence Welch, all of which became instant club classics around the world. Other songs include collaborations with Ne-Yo, and the fan favorite “Feel So Close”. With so many songs under his belt, Harris soon became a record-breaker as well as hit-maker, becoming the artist to score the most hits from one album in the United Kingdom, a feat previously held by Michael Jackson.

Born in 17 January 1969 in Breda, Netherlands, Tiesto (Tijs Verwest) is one of the most famous DJs alive. Ever since he was a child, he was extremely passionate about trance music and was keen on spending his afternoons playing with the miniature mixer given by his mom. When he was younger, he enjoyed listening to a channel called “Soul Show”. He would cut his favorite tracks, mix them and record them on his computer.

Soon, he progressed and became known around the country. He managed to get a contract to mix three nights a week in a club, and this propelled him forward. As more and more people were attending his shows, Tiesto got some appealing offers from other musicians who wanted to help him become big. In 1995, after buying some samplers, computer software and other recording tools, he started to compose his own music

Tiesto’s career is scattered with huge achievements: the first instrumental track to get a top spot in Holland in 23 years, the first DJ ever to fill out a whole stadium with over 25,000 seats and many other unique accomplishments. Among ATB, Armin Van Buuren and other big names in this on growing industry, the name of Tiesto stands out of the crowd, being synonymous with quality, pleasure and joy of life. This well-famed artist played in front of billions of people from all over the world who were watching the broadcast of the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004.

Known for his pioneering contributions in the trance music scene, Tiesto’s style is now a mix of house, trance and techno. Because he traveled all around the world, he managed to take something from every culture and blend it into his unique creations. His productions range from perfect chill out music to peak time club songs. In his third album, “Elements of Life”, Tiesto goes with a blend of trance and rock, something unique so far. He also blends some of his songs with the experimental style to create some masterpieces he would later sell all over the world. Some of his most famous songs are Adagio for Strings, Lethal Industry, Dance4Life and Urban Train. In 2012, Forbes named Tiesto as the number one highest paid DJ of the world. His top 3 selling hits and most popular songs are: Adagio for Strings, Feel it in My Bones and Traffic.

In May 2006, the artist decided to become a worldwide ambassador of the Dance4Life foundation. He started to invest huge amounts of money and time into this charitable foundation whose aim is to push back the spread of HIV and AIDS. Now, Tiesto continues to explore fresh avenues and has begun writing new songs using simpler sounds and techniques. He is not interested anymore in big collaborations with reputable artists, but prefers to travel a lot by himself, relax and create astounding mixes for all his fans from all over the world.
