Laidback Luke
Laidback Luke
Laidback Luke (born Lucas Cornelis van Scheppingen, 22 October 1976 in Manila, Philippines) is a Dutch DJ and producer. He was voted #46 on DJ Mag's Top 100 DJ list in 2008, before jumping to #27 in 2009 and jumping up 10 places in 2010.[1][2]

Laidback Luke grew up in The Netherlands and made his name as a graffiti artist before turning to making music. He has worked with artists such as David Guetta, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, Axwell and Junior Sanchez and played throughout Europe and North America as well as shows in Japan and Ibiza. He has released two studio albums: Psyched Up (1998) and Electronic Satisfaction (2002) as well as a successful mix album, Windmill Skill (2003). In 2003, van Scheppingen did a remix of the Daft Punk song "Crescendolls" for the duo's remix album Daft Club. Luke has also released his own mix album, titled Ibiza Closing Party, as a free covermount CD in the October 2008 issue of Mixmag. He has currently released his new album on the 4th of July, 2011, called Cream Ibiza Super You & Me.
Martin Solveig
Martin Solveig
Martin Solveig has sharply risen from being a well-respected DJ, to one of the most formidable producers and performers in the world. His music has sold well into the millions, his music videos are renowned as by far the best in their class and his performances continue to electrify audiences in every corner of the globe. With his fourth studio album "SMASH", Martin draws us into a world of pure and unparalleled fun...but just how did he get here, right to the pinnacle of crossover dance success?

In some ways, the answer for many people is simple, "Hello". It has singlehandedly become one of the biggest success stories of recent years. What started as a humble club track soon exploded into one of the biggest crossover dance records in the world. It has gone on to sell over 1.3 million copies, achieve platinum status in four countries and the accompanying music video has been viewed in excess of 35 million times and counting. "Hello" catapulted its creator towards immediate stardom, but there are years of work behind the man who made this record. Let's indulge in L'histoire du Solveig.

Like so many, Martin's love affair with music began at an early age, influenced by luminaries such as Prince, Lenny Kravitz, Stevie Wonder and Serge Gainsbourg. His eccentric taste and non-conformist attitude have been the backbone to what he is today - a multi faceted artist. He sings, he produces, he deejays, he acts and occasionally he dances too.

Aged 21, Solveig started his own label called Mixture Stereophonic & released ‘Heart of Africa'. The track went on to sell 10,000 copies that offered a clear signal to Martin that a career in music was well worth pursuing. Martin's first album, ‘Sur La Terre' released in 2002, achieved critical acclaim and enabled the Parisian to work with Salif Keita for whom he remixed ‘Madan', one of 2003's biggest club anthems. The afro-disco bomb as well as Martin's new funk driven ‘Rocking Music' both helped to catapult his career to a whole new level.

Next up came the Hedonist album, packed with a ream of hit singles such as ‘Everybody', ‘Jealousy' and ‘Rejection', and indicating quite clearly that Martin Solveig had well and truly arrived. His most recent album "C'est La Vie" was his biggest album to date, selling in excess of 300,000 copies and winning fans over from far and wide.

In 2009 Martin was presented with two of the most prestigious accolades any Frenchman could hope to win - the ‘Chevalier Des Arts et Des Lettres' for his contribution to the arts, and the ‘Artiste de Musiques Electroniques de l'Annee' award at the French Victoires de la Musique - further testament to his ever-growing popularity and truly forward-thinking music style and creativity.

As 2010 was in its final months "Hello" became his biggest career landmark to date. The genius creation that is the SMASH YouTube series came to define a new breed of music videos, signalling Martin as a creative force much more powerful than most of his contemporaries - regularly described by many critics as being "in a league of his own".

First came the legendary Roland Garros stadium, then the incredible Stade De France, a rooftop pool in Singapore and upcoming episodes from Japan and Australia. There really is nothing to halt the series from going on to achieving so much more. And this is without touching on the soundtrack that accompanies each episode.

Each video is accompanied by snippets of his latest creation, "SMASH". A modern day masterpiece, bursting at the seams with pure fun, frivolity and all capped off with timeless trademark sounds. Involving the undeniable talents of Dragonette, Bloc Party front man Kele, up and coming UK sensation Sunday Girl plus US whirlwind DEV - it brings Martin to new and dizzying heights.

Martin continues to be one of the worlds most in demand performers, whether it's headlining festival stages, playing intimate clubs or performing on national TV for millions of viewers. Everything he approaches, he does with the same intensity and flare that has spanned his entire career; he has an innate ability to make each and every person in a room feel welcome, invited and free of inhibitions. At the end of the day this boils down to one thing, Martin Solveig is one of the most exciting and talented performers in the world. Are you ready to SMASH?
Mt. Eden
Mt. Eden
As dubstep production duo Mt Eden (formerly Mt Eden Dubstep), Jesse Cooper and Harley Rayner are truly putting New Zealand - and dubstep as a genre - on the map. You could write that off as industry hyperbole, but in this case a little braggadocio is entirely apt: to date the New Zealand based act can claim over 80 million collective plays of their tracks on YouTube - more than any other New Zealand act, ever.

What started as a hobby in their early teens (they were 13 and 14 when they started mixing together on their computers), has morphed into international success for the pair, who only started posting their music online after a friend created a YouTube channel for them in early 2010. Within months their total hit count was in the millions and rising - all of a sudden the bedroom producers and amateur DJs were staring down the barrel of international renown, and feeling appropriately blown away.

Having first made their mark with the epic ‘Sierra Leone', Mt Eden have since remixed tracks by Ruby Frost, Six60 and legendary producer DJ Fresh, as well as many other incredible local and international artists - simultaneously building a large enough collection of their own material to warrant the recent release of their EP MEDS. Says Rayner, "It felt like the weight was shifted when we put out MEDS, because we finally had a body of original work we could be proud of and that was well received."

Having put MEDS to the people Mt Eden are already at work on their debut album, which will feature collaborations and remixes with a number of other respected producers and artists from around the world. Claiming they only started making dubstep because of genre godfathers Benga and Skream, the duo's influences also include Baths, Doctor P, Ben Sage, Hudson Mohawke, Skrillex, James Blake and Tokyo Prose.

Live, Mt Eden's shows are built around moments - extended build-ups, drum solos, double and triple drops - the focus always being to generate momentum and keep the crowd in the right frame of mind. Featuring a lot of unreleased material - including their own unreleased bootlegs, unheard edits of their own tunes and unreleased tracks from other artists - every Mt Eden set is a unique journey. "We have always played a good mixture of light and dark, so it can be an uplifting and gut-wrenching journey all at the same time," elaborates Cooper.

Reflecting on the events of the past year Rayner says, "We didn't expect any of this to happen, and we are still overwhelmed by it." They better get their heads around it soon, because this rollercoaster ride is already well underway.
Felguk
Felguk
Brazilian duo, Felguk, burst onto the scene in 2009 with a fresh-take on electro-house that catapulted them onto the world’s stage and directly into DJ Mag’s lauded 2011 Top 100 DJs poll. Formed in 2007, just two years later Madonna had personally called Felipe (Fel) and Gustavo (Guk) to ask for a remix, and they were playing to crowds of over 30,000 in Brazil. In 2010, US powerhouse promoter Insomniac used their smash ‘2nite’ as the theme song for the Electric Daisy Carnival, which shattered records with over 180,000 attendees. Further remixes for icons like David Guetta and Black Eyes Peas have followed, and the duo has continued to blitz the Beatport top 10 with their own original productions. In-studio their sonic palate continues to expand, as evidenced by their dubstep collaboration with UK bass master Example. While on-stage their live show has become a calling card complete with stage diving, deck-top dancing and an infectious energy that crowds around the world are eating up.
Pierce Fulton
Pierce Fulton
Pierce Fulton's love for music was apparent in the earliest days of his childhood. He was labeled somewhat of a prodigy and mastered every instrument he could get his hands on. Born with a guitar in his hands, Pierce has remained an avid musician his entire life. Throughout the years, Pierce has been on a never-ending journey of musical discovery. He has listened to everything: classic rock, reggae, metal, classical, house, trance, IDM. You name the genre and Pierce can tell you exactly when he went through a phase and loved it. He has played in rock bands, reggae bands, metal bands, and school orchestras. With such an expansive and passionate background in music, Pierce is able to pull from a huge spectrum of sound and influence in his productions.

With diversity of sound as his muse, Pierce recently crashed onto the international scene with his debut release on UK based Cr2 Records "Pardon My French". Featured on Above & Beyond's Trance Around The World, EDX's radio show No Xcuses, and Andi Durrant's Capital FM, the EP performed extremely well on Beatport and iTunes. The release as a whole climbed to the number 2 position in the Beatport Top 100 electro house releases and the individual tracks placed in their respective genre Top 100 chart. It also reached #89 on the US iTunes dance chart in a matter of days. Highly acclaimed and massively hyped in the digital sphere, "Pardon My French," is but the first of a number of exciting things in the Pierce Fulton pipeline for 2012 and beyond.

Before "Pardon My French" Pierce saw success with a number of different remixes. "I Ain't Stoppin'" was the subject of massive internet buzz and performed well on Beatport. The track also saw support from Max Vangeli, Ian Carey, Bob Sinclar, Tristan Garner, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, and D.O.N.S. Following the success of "I Ain't Stoppin'" Pierce put out two unofficial remixes: "Please Don't Go," by Mike Posner and "Coming Home" by Diddy and Dirty Money. "Please Don't Go" was featured on SiriusXM's BPM and both tracks were enormously successful in the blogosphere.

Pierce is considered to be one of the hugely talented 'Nu Skool' producers making a huge impact on the dance scene. Pierce's recent remix of the MTV Ibiza backed 'Don't Be Afraid' by MYNC, Ron Carroll & Dan Castro introduced a whole new wave of hype for the young up-and-comer. Mark Brown, Cr2 owner, was one of the first to sign records from young Eric Prydz and Steve Angello before they became global superstars. With his full support, you can expect big things from Pierce in the months and years to come.

Pierce's original productions and remixes have most recently been featured by MYNC on the Cr2 Live & Direct radio show. The show is played for over 1.7 million weekly listeners and ensures continued widespread coverage for the whiz-kid.
