MARTY PARTY (Of PantyRaid!!)
MARTyPARTy is an electronic music producer and performer. Born and raised in South Africa and currently residing in Miami, his music runs the gambit from ambient hip hop to dirty club and festival music. Whatever the genre the music is always emotional and often experimental in nature. MARTyPARTy has released 6 original albums and toured for 8 years playing his original sets. MARTyPARTy started producing his own flavor of music in 2005 with the mission to change the monotony of electronic music by creating an entirely different electronic sound: more musical, more story telling, and more diversity in the beats. The result is a growing anthology of MARTyPARTy music crossing over most popular genres into a rich original sound.
From the first glimpses of Robert Balotsky's work as Buku, it was clear that the Pittsburgh native and graduate of Music Technology was onto something. With an effortless grasp on sound design and music theory, the young producer combines deceptively simple and emotive melodies, laden with resounding bass drops and intricate drum patterns. With a love of drums rooting from childhood, his work reflects the obsession – emitting percussive elements only a trained ear could produce.
Behind a kit since age 8, he followed the progression of handling percussion duties for multiple bands throughout his adolescence. Once introduced to digital production, Buku took his techniques to stranger dimensions – and he's been pushing the boundaries ever since.
There are melodic bass producers, and then there is Nick Miller. The Denver-based producer known as Illenium has been turning heads in the dance music community over the past year and for good reason. Illenium has distinguished himself from the myriad of others through an unrivaled ability to create an immersive emotional experience of highs and lows that pulls on the heart strings and leaves the listener awestruck, accomplishing in the span of just a few short minutes what takes many a full set. He has displayed an adeptness for creating aural arrangements that vary in style, yet always maintain beauty, complexity and emotional depth. Illenium gave the world a taste of what he has to offer in 2014 with standout originals “Falling In,” “So Wrong,” “Make Me Do;” remixes of Dawn Golden, Odesza, Oh Wonder; and performances at Global Dance Festival, Decadence NYE and other select dates. However, as foreshadowed by his inclusion in UKF’s “Ones to Watch: 15 for 2015,” this is poised to be Illenium’s breakout year.
Infuze’s music is like his home New York City. It’s rooted in the misty streets. There is the unmistakable influence of hip-hop, his city’s greatest musical legacy. From these roots it rises. It looks up, like hopes and dreams of the millions. It reaches high as the mighty skyline, transcending to something greater, increasing in scope. Music like this demands deep talent. Years of training. Layers of experience piled up like so much history. You can tell the story of a city by digging into the ground. The deeper you go into Infuze’s music, the more you discover. Be ready for some incredible things.

M.C. ANNIE DOLLY
Annie Dolly is a mix between your favorite pop princess with some gangsta juice added all over the top. She likes to rap about important issues masked under colloquial nuances.
LOU E. BAGELS
Lou E. Bagels is a lover of music, a multi-genre party rocker with cutting edge taste and a fond love of the classics. With over ten years of experience in DJing and countless mind blowing sets from Burning Man, Shambhala, Coachella, EDC and Lightning in a Bottle, it’s no wonder that Bagels has become a legend in the Los Angeles underground scene.
Henry Pope has smashed the edge off the cubist and injected color into the monochromatic. It is no surprise that for the past several years his music has been popping up on radio stations around the globe, Top 100 lists, huge festival lineups (Coachella), and tastemaker music blogs.
EVeryman has recently delivered his debut EP and LP, which sees the versatile vocalist seamlessly fuses his love for both hip-hop and electronic music. After making his debut with producer, Nick “Pumpkin” Alvarado, as part of their collaborative hip-hop group, Little Giants, on EVeryman’s first solo foray, “Speak the Speech,” he collaborates with some of electronic music’s top young producers to deliver some of his best work to date. On the triumphant opener, “To Be or Not to Be,” EVeryman sets the tone early by getting down over Connect the Dot’s futuristic, G-Funk flavored breakbeats, before teaming with Headtron music producer, Stephan Jacobs on the sublime, “Summer Firefly.” EVeryman also teams to great effect with fellow Los Angeles-based vocalist, J Brave, as the two trade socially conscious barbs on “Divine Grind,” which boasts Sugarpill’s signature style of sonic grooves.
