Stylust Beats (Sleeveless Records)
Known for his sleeveless, whimsical synergy with the fans, Geoff “Stylust Beats” Reich has been creating his own counterculture since he was a teenager. A skate punk and hip-hop devotee, this groundbreaking DJ’s talent for fusing rap hooks and dubstep bass with multiple music genres has earned him the rep as a creative renegade carving his own path. With a style that captivates lovers of all music, the Canadian-bred San Francisco DJ has emerged as a frontrunner in the new wave of industry heavyweights. In a recent Artist of the Week interview forMusicYouNeed.net, this stereophonic chameleon explains the method to his madness, “My goal is to make timeless bass music: I try to make every track an epic melodic adventure through many different genres.”
With unabashed rebellion and seamless finesse, Stylust Beats captains this musical trip through uncharted waters on his new album, R.Y.F.S.O., released in Fall 2013 on the formidable bass label, Play Me Free Records. Weaving genres of trap, hip-hop, larger-than-life dubstep and sonic chill with stupefying synth work, R.Y.F.S.O. boasts a kaleidoscope of sound yet un-experienced in the market. Not far removed from his award-nominated Soundbwoy EP, Stylust is showing no sign of backing down from the innovative stylism that has earned him well over a million SoundCloud plays to date.
Blending classic turntablism with cutting edge tech prowess, Geoff has been touring as DJ Stylust Beats since 2008. Stretching all over the United States, Canada and Costa Rica, he has headlined major festivals, including Shambala, Envision and Burning Man, to name a few. With the 2014 festival season already in full swing, this bass-slinging workhorse will be slaying dance floors across North America all summer long.
Now sporting his first full-length album, R.Y.F.S.O., Stylust Beats is poised to rip the sleeves off the dubstep status quo, blazing a new trail of sound that will redefine the industry norms. But don’t be fooled by his rebel-without-a-care persona: with his own label, Sleeveless Records, in the works, Stylust is a consummate pro with a passion for his art form and global respect within his reach. Best described in his own words, just “Rip Yer F#*ckin’ Sleeves Off!”

CHAMPAGNE DRIP (Mad Decent)
Combining equal parts 80's synth & electro funk with 90's retro house, R&B, and jungle rhythms, alongside the fresh sounds of Tropical and Future Bass, Champagne Drip has arrived at just the right time. The project has been getting a good amount of buzz, due in part to it's clandestine nature (the producer's identity and origin is under wraps) vs. the high quality of music it has released right of the gate thru Diplo's label Mad Decent as well as official remixes for Bassnectar, Elliphant, and Lemonade. Champagne Drip's first EP "Radio Bikini" was recently remixed by friends Big Wild, Lazerdisk, Mayhem, and Son Of Kick, released for free in May with support from Mad Decent.
Champagne Drip's new 6-track EP is slated for release in August 2015.

WHITEHORSE - Natalia Benson / Whitehorse
WHITEHORSE is DJ & Designer Natalia Benson’s etheric bass heavy performance alias. Inspired by a dream she had in early 2012 Natalia began to learn djing as a means of channeling unexpressed creative energy after long hours of solitude designing. Discovering bass music through the festival scene in her early twenties lends itself to WHITEHORSE’s dream like yet powerful sound: channeling other worlds and bringing a message through her music whilst entertaining rap/pop culture samples & heavy bass lines.
Thus far WHITEHORSE has played alongside some of her future bass & trap influenced favorites like Huglife, Vaski, TastyTreat, B.R.E.E.D., AmpLive, Pumpkin, Prince Fox and An-ten-nae as well as performed on The Do Lab stage at Coachella & Lightning in a Bottle.
In June 2015 WHITEHORSE released her first original track entitled IN SKY, a powerfully emotional genre-less work that will be part of a trilogy track release on two subsequent full moons this year. In conjunction to IN SKY's release, WHITEHORSE also wrote & helped to produce her first music video with LA based photographer & film maker Galen Oakes and featuring famed teen actor Blake Michael.
