The Chainsmokers have quite the interesting story... .. ..It was a winter Wednesday night in NYC 2007 and both Rhett and Alex were out and about. At the time, Rhett had never met Alex and vice versa. Nevertheless, at that time Alex was hosting a table at Marquee wednesdays through the wonderful GBH...times were tough money was needed and free alcohol was key. The party generally sucked, Long Island's finest and retarded FIT girls (we love you FIT! just not all of you) The night went on and the party was winding down, in fact it was DEAD! BUT good old Marquee has a rule you must stay till 3:30AM or no money. So, Alex sat there all alone with a full bottle of vodka chainsmoking ciggs and watching the clock wishing a lightening bolt would strike him down or the place would set fire. .... Neither happened, but something much more amazing did. Suddenly a strapping young gentleman in a leather jacket looking like he had just finished a 2 week bender (he probably had) walked up to the table and introduced himself (I think, these details are a bit hazy as we were both shit faced) So lets assume we did..... That was the first interaction with Les Chainsmokers...Alex, who was excited to have finally met a dude that was cool and not wearing G Star with some Air Force Ones and a button down shirt said " Listen man sit down we are going to hang out we have an entire bottle lets get shitty (we were both already wasted)".... Half a bottle later we were deep on conversation about NYC girls, drugs, music, music and more music. .... Not exactly sure what happened the rest of the night but, from that moment on Rhett and Alex would hang out everywhere share girls together (Marya and Julia holler at us!), whiskey, music, joints, you name it...the dynamic duo of sorts, except we openly recognize that were are both pussbags...It was only a matter of time that we realized NYC music sucked and there needed to be an injection of bananas into it....... Individually Rhett and Alex had been listening to music all their lives, and amassing a serious collection of music throughout all genres. Then, suddenly the time came when they looked at each other, most likely at 1Oak and said, "I cannot take this shit anymore we have got to DJ and take over." So they combined collections set up the equipment and got to mixing..... A year later we are spinning parties, bringing a rage room dance energy, getting absolutely housed, spontaneously playing the "Full House" theme song, dancing our faces off and blowing speakers all over NYC. .. Now, the Chainsmokers's name came about in a very obvious way. We smoke. A lot. Naturally, the name backfired as ciggs cost 10+ dollars in NYC and now we are going broke while we're killing ourselves. We tried for a sponsorship with Phillip Morris but we were flat out denied. They sent us a serious letter claiming that we "weren’t Phillip Morris material." Hmmm, whatever (maybe a cigarette sponsorship is not the best idea) Look out for the Chainsmokers in a city near you before we develop a ridic black lung....... ..puff puff weeze weeze.. ......-les Chainsmokers......

Kaskade: “Kaskade’s signature sound is as unmistakable as it is beautiful; a combination of dewy female vocals, tough electronic underpinnings, and memorable melodies.” -- Billboard

The New York Times may have called him the “new face of electronic dance music” in a recent profile, but Ryan Raddon, known as Kaskade, has been in the trenches of the EDM scene as an original recording artist and in-demand DJ for more than a decade. He has released seven studio albums, including his latest, Fire & Ice, scored nine Top 10 hits on Billboard’s Hot Dance Airplay Chart, created chart-topping remixes for everyone from Lady Gaga to Beyoncé, appeared at all the major summer festivals, and has performed between 150 and 200 headlining shows a year for the last 10 years, building a name for himself as an innovator of the EDM scene as we know it today, which has opened doors for the likes of Deadmau5, Tiesto, Skrillex and more. In doing so, he has helped to lay the groundwork for a titanic musical and cultural shift: a post-rock EDM revolution that has captured the imagination of a new generation of music lovers across North America

Kaskade has been named America’s No. 1 DJ by DJ Times and Pioneer DJ. In 2012, he will appear at this year’s Coachella, for which he has a special performance planned, and will hit the road in May for his biggest headlining tour ever — 50-plus North American shows in just over three months. His own live show is a jaw-dropping spectacle that finds him performing in front of an 80-foot wide, three-stories tall LED screen that blares images synched with the music while strobe lights scan the crowd. Kaskade’s belief in the transformative power of dance music to uplift thousands of people at once has had a significant effect on the U.S. scene. His ground-breaking double residency in Las Vegas at the Encore Beach Club (which had not even been built when he signed on) and Marquee has elevated the city’s status as a premiere club-going destination on par with London, Berlin, and Ibiza, is another testament to his influence.

Growing up in the Chicago suburbs, Raddon was heavily influenced by New Wave bands like The Cure, Echo and The Bunnymen, and The Smiths that ignited his love for melody and lyrics and was strongly impacted by the house music scene that developed in Chicago. Following stints spinning throughout college and in A&R at OM Records, he began working on his own music, which includes multiple singles, EPs, and remixes, as well as the albums: his most recent 2011 release Fire & Ice – which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Dance Chart, No. 3 on the Independent Albums chart, and No. 17 on the Top 200 Albums chart, while the iTunes version debuted at No. 4 on the overall album chart. The Fire disc contains ten original songs geared firmly toward the dancefloor, while on the Ice disc, Kaskade delivers the perfect down-tempo post-club experience by remixing all ten songs. Both discs showcase the musical versatility tat has characterized his work ever since he began writing his own songs. This album was preceded by It’s You, It’s Me (2003), In the Moment (2004), The Calm (2006), Here & Now (2006), Love Mysterious (2006), Strobelite Seduction (2008), Dynasty (2010) and Dance.Love (2010).

Flosstradamus: 2 DJs, 4 turntables, and lots of people getting buck on the dancefloor. Remixes, ReFixes, Tracks, Beats holla at cha boys..

Girl Talk: Greg Gillis, better known professionally as Girl Talk, has become one of the premier mash-up artists in the US. He has played tour dates to capacity crowds around the world, and his albums have sold…well, nobody really knows. Due to Girl Talk's extensive use of sampling from other artists, Gillis sells all his albums digitally on the donation-based online record label, Illegal Art. That hasn't stopped Girl Talk from becoming more popular than many artists signed to major labels, or from playing 2011 tour dates at some of the summer's biggest music festivals.

Gillis began making music while in high school, eventually recording under the name Girl Talk in college while studying biomedical engineering. Early on, Gillis realized he could legally use samples from other artists by citing the fair use exception in copyright law that says he can use samples on albums and tour dates if they're short enough. While Girl Talk has been releasing albums since 2002, he broke onto the mainstream with his 2006 album, Night Ripper. The 2008 album, Feed the Animals, was nearly universally acclaimed and was prominently featured on many magazines' Best of lists for the year.

Girl Talk's 2010 album, All Day, has been the best received yet, even receiving an "A" from traditional critic Robert Christgau. Consequently, fans are showing up in droves for Girl Talk's tour dates in 2011, which began at the beginning of July. Highlights from the tour will include appearances at Wanderlust, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, and the Blackwater Music Festival. Girl Talk's 2011 tour dates end on October 29 at the Voodoo Experience Music Festival, so buy your tickets soon!
