NiT GriT
NiT GriT
One frequent criticism of electronic music is that its synthetically generated sounds lack the capacity to induce the same level of emotion as live instrumentation. San Jose Dubstep producer NiT GRiT (Danny Beall) casts aside these doubts, shattering common misconceptions with his incredibly inspired and deeply personal sound. Feelings of rage, passion, betrayal, uncertainty, and other meaningful elements of the human experience are all distinctly present in the dark and brooding melodies woven from the very fabric of NiT GriT’s imagination.

Completely unlike any other performance, NiT GriT appears on-stage as a living titan of bass, possessed as if infused with the colossal power of his own thunderous bass-lines. NiT GriT boldly demolishes genre norms, demonstrating beyond any doubt that even an often over-used formula can yield phenomenal results when imbued with deep personal honesty and a devout attention to the most minute details. His profound success as a self-built independent musician coupled with his heartfelt, soulful compositions serve as an inspiration to fans and fellow musicians alike. With nearly all of his tracks appearing almost instantaneously on SoundCloud’s weekly “What’s Hot” charts, NiT GriT has developed a reputation as an absolutely viral internet phenomenon. However, despite his rapid rise as a pioneer of the american Dubstep sound, NiT GriT remains a personal musical project, built from the ground up by the always- humble Danny Beall.
Gladkill
Gladkill
Boris Gladkikh aka Gladkill has been on a meteoric rise in the electronic music scene since he first began playing live in 2009. Through his tremendous work ethic and tireless touring schedule, Gladkill has already played for massive audiences on the stages of large-scale music festivals such as Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, Earthdance and Burning Man, winning over new fans with every stop.

O
riginally hailing from NYC, Gladkill now resides in Los Angeles and is part of Headtron, where the versatile young producer’s music fits perfectly alongside the other talented artists that make up the collective. Refusing to stick to the comfort of making one style of music, Gladkill has rewarded audiences through the sheer diversity of his songs, as he deftly moves between dominating dance floors with his sexy, crunked-out club bangers, as well as captivating home stereo speakers with more downtempo and melodic material.

Following up on the success of 2010’s Ghostwork and 2011’s Lovelost, he has continued to hone his production skills by consistently creating fresh original material for his genre-smashing live sets, which will culminate with his debut artist album due in 2012. With a heavier emphasis on songwriting and song structure, Gladkill is aiming to make music that will stand the test of time.

When you listen to Gladkill’s songs or see him perform, you’ll discover an artist set apart between the sheets of cool bass lines and ethereal melodies. In an era where disposable dance music is big business, Gladkill makes anything but.
Sugarpill
Sugarpill
Combining an array of meticulously tweaked polytemponic beats, explosive basslines, and soaring melodies, Sugarpill fluidly melds sounds into a crunked-out speaker shaking musical escapade. The Sugarpill sound and live experience defies the boundaries of genre-centric electronic music and ventures into a multidimensional musical realm that unites fans across a vast spectrum. With sounds that churn audiences in visceral dance while simultaneously captivating the imagination through soulful harmony, Sugarpill continues to break ground at the forefront of the West-Coast future sound.
Rodway
Rodway
Rodway is an up and coming dubstep Producer/DJ out of Denver, Colorado, who has been steadily garnering praise from peers and established figures in the EDM scene. Within two weeks of the release of his debut EP, High Life, he was picked up by Noiseporn Records and featured on many prominent blogs, including mind your (dub)step and Sound Logik.

Since his arrival in Colorado, he has shared the stage with plenty of heavy hitters including Zeds Dead, Crizzly, Nit Grit, Eoto, and more. What separates Rodway from other contemporary artists is his distinctly musical brand of dubstep, a product of formal music training with a sound that draws from classic rock, jazz, heavy metal, and just about everything in between.

Combine this with his incredible live shows and mixes and it's clear why Sound Logik described Rodway as an artist with a "unique style that fuses that broken beat we all love, with tingling elements usually reserved for other genres." Mad Decent put Rodway's remix of Flux Pavilion's Bass Canon on the top 12 tracks of 2011.
