Wick-It The Instigator
Wick-It The Instigator
Ask anyone who's seen him live and they'll tell you that Wick-it puts on one of the most high-energy, original and entertaining live shows you've ever seen. With successful headlining shows everywhere from California to Alabama, it is clear that the rest of the nation is taking note as well.

What makes Wick-it so special begins in the studio. Starting in 2010 with his groundbreaking Big Boi vs. Black Keys mashup album The Brothers of Chico Dusty, Wick-it's thoughtfully fresh remixes have earned him a reputation amongst listeners as a producer that only puts out the highest quality of tracks. His ability to deliver in a multitude of styles earned him recent support slots for acts like:

Pretty Lights, Ghostland Observatory, Big Boi, Skrillex, Porter Robinson, MiM0SA, Three 6 Mafia, Yelawolf, PANTyRAiD, Girl Talk, SKisM, Borgore, Zoogma, Perpetual Groove, NiT GriT, Zeds Dead and Caspa.

One of the secrets behind his fan base's rabid loyalty is that, although a handful of his tracks have recently been released under labels (and charted on Beatport), the majority of his music is available for free download on his SoundCloud page. With almost 2,000,000 plays and 500,000 downloads, it is clear people simply can't get enough Wick-it. His musical approach is tough to pinpoint given that his roots are in hip-hop, but elements of dubstep, rock and house music have all made their way into his repertoire.

Wick-it's most recent full-length release, Grindhouse Basterds, is a Quentin Tarantino themed hip hop, mashup, dubstep, electronic extravaganza. It features remixes of Apathy, Celph Titled, Bun B, Yelawolf, Aesop Rock, Murs, Slug, Notorious B.I.G., KRS ONE, RZA, Ghostface, and more.

With acts like Bassnectar, Z-Trip & MiMOSA now beginning to catch on (They've been using Wick-its original remixes as part of their current tours), it's only a matter of time before Wick-it is propelled to the top ranks of his craft.
Defunk
Hailing from Calgary, Canada, Defunk has taken funky bass music to a whole new level. Most popularly known for his attention of bringing elements of funk, jazz and blues into heavy bass music, he constantly strives to develop new sounds with new elements based around the idea of groove. Sexy sounds, funky rhythms, dirty drops, disco dancing, jazzy solos, and intriguing instruments can all be found in his catalogue. His intention is to constantly push the limit on what bass music is viewed as while still keeping the elements that make you want to dance.
SoDown
To be SoDown is to seize every opportunity, explore new grounds, try new things and ultimately live the most epic life possible. This universe is far too beautiful and life is simply too short to not do what makes you happy. Unconditional love is the most powerful force in the world and Bass Music is my way of expressing it.

Along his Journey, SoDown has topped charts on many blogs, including his most recent successes on Dubstep.net in which his tracks "Babylon Stomp" and "Bright Lights" ranked #2 for the week. His debut EP, "A Sudden and Drastic Change" was a great success getting picked up by Wake and Bass, and Real Trap. During SoDown's first year, he shared the stage with acts such as ill.Gates, R/D, Opiuo, Random Rab, Bassnectar, The Floozies, Heyoka, Bluetech, Bass Science, Love and Light, Kaminanda, and more. SoDown's latest productions include his wide array of musical talents including saxophone, guitar, and piano. His style varies widely, ranging from soul soothing jazz, and blues, to hard funk, glitch hop, and dubstep. SoDown is proving step by step to be one of the top and hardest working producers in the game.
