RL Grime is a distinct voice in a sea of monotony. He has found a way to conquer the electronic space without compromising his identity, and therefor evokes an unrelenting independence in a world where independence is the utmost rarity. His live show has been celebrated as "an unparalleled force" and has graced the biggest festival stages across the world (Coachella - LA, Lollapalooza - Buenos Aires, STORM - Shanghai etc) With only 1 album out, over 100 million plays on his songs, rave reviews and magazine covers, he has quickly become the darling of the dance world. And at 25 years old, with his next LP on the way, he is on the verge of becoming a household name.
Hawaii’s Christian Mochizuki, aka graves, is a DJ and electronic producer known for his sophisticated, hip hop influenced progressive style. A native of Honolulu, Mochizuki first came to prominence after working as an engineer on Kanye West’s Grammy Award winning 2010 album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Also during this period, he earned credits on albums by Kid Cudi, Justin Beiber, Big Sean, and others.

After parting ways with West in 2013, he began making music with a short lived EDM outfit before adopting the name graves in 2015. Mochizuki started releasing his music online and quickly garnered a fan base for his kinetic, atmospheric, and often experimental sound.

His 2017 debut EP Hilo reached #1 on iTunes electronic charts and features collaborations with Boombox Cartel, Lil Traffic, and bbno$.
It takes an equal part talent, finesse, sass, and balls for a woman to get the right kind of attention in the ever-competitive industry of young DJs and producers... Kittens has just that. With her vast knowledge of music and past as a dancer, Kittens (born Lauren Abedini) has been able to find a balance between low grinding electronic beats, heavy rap, and future beat music which has earned the support of some of the most influential artists of our time; including longtime mentor, Usher, Kid Cudi (whom she supported on his 2013 tour), Skrillex, Gaslamp Killer, Salva, and A-Trak, who has her signed to his record label Fool's Gold and championed her in every facet of her career.

Mixmag and The Hundreds have named her as a "Rising Producer/DJ Shaping the LA Club Scene." She has made countless "Top Female DJ" lists and Source Magazine's "25 Women To Watch" as well as being mentioned as one of Los Angeles' major players by Thump. Her aggressive style of DJing, made through quick cuts inspired by her foundation as a hip hop DJ and harder track selections often leave people pleasantly shocked to find she is not as soft and fluffy as her name might suggest.

Kittens is also member of LA collective Athletixx, along with Hoodboi, Falcons, and Promnite, who are pioneering the sound and have coined the term "LA Club" with their eclectic but heavy hitting alternative club music.

When she's not out DJing or working on music, you can bet Kittens is either building her cat army, napping, eating Oreos, or teaching one of her Girls Only DJ workshops.
