His euphoric originals and viral remixes seamlessly weave in and out of several musical categories, staying true to his creed: “music has no boundaries.”
Keys N Krates
While it may look that way on stage, nothing is ever simple with Keys N Krates. Not when everyone has an equally valid opinion, along with the willingness (no, the all-consuming need) to sit and scrutinize a hearty 808 hit or laser like synth line for hours on end. It’s been this way since the very beginning, when Keys N Krates went from being a live hip-hop band reliant on rough acapellas and memory-jogging remixes to something much more complex – a tight-knit trio of producers/performers – Turntablist Jr Flo, Keyboard player David Matisse, drummer Adam Tune – who take rocking a party as seriously as a week spent in the studio. “We always trade roles from song to song,” explains Jr. Flo. “It’s not uncommon for Matisse to flip a sample, or for me to write a melody, or for Tune to chime in on the mixing of a track. It’s not the fastest way of working, but everyone has a say in everything.” Which explains why their breakthrough singles (the elastic loops and diamond-edged drums of “Dum Dee Dum,” the head rush hooks of “Treat Me Right,” a frantic, D’n’B-flavored “Are We Faded”) are able to pull the strings of packed festival crowds without resorting to tired EDM tropes. Hip-hop, house and UK bass music all play a role in a Keys N Krates record, but so do the dark-tinged dynamics and widescreen ways of indie acts like Caribou and M83. “Seeing M83 live at the Osheaga festival changed our whole perception of how their music translates live,” says Jr. Flo. “The chord progressions are beautiful and catchy but never corny. It’s pop music at its best.” That was essentially the goal with the Toronto group’s new Midnite Mass EP: cuts that are calibrated for clubs but that can translate beyond. Punchy and powerful. Emotional and epic. That goes for everything from its title track (an intro that sounds like a suspenseful thesis) to a Katy B collab (“Save Me”) that’ll beam old-school ravers straight back to the ’90s. And then there’s something as deceivingly simple as “Love Again,” a soulful rap beat created from scratch and such artful details as the orchestral flourishes of Ouici and the gospel vocals of a friend named JP. Let’s just say it’s no coincidence that the song sounds like it sampled a dust-caked ’70s record from a long-buried discount bin; That Just Blaze or Kanye might find and flip, Keys N Krates want to leave you wondering just how they do it. “We wanted people to wonder where we got a lot of the sounds for this EP, the same way we have when listening to producers like Just Blaze and Timbaland. Those guys have always used source samples or sounds that leave you scratching your head. We love that simplicity; it’s like true Italian cooking, a few ingredients to make something so impactful…. beats that leave you wondering ‘where the fuck did he get that sound from?’

Los Angeles-based producer Joey Khodanian, better known as JayKode, started his musical journey at age 7, when he began playing classical piano. By age 15, he had immersed himself with the guitar while experimenting heavily with metal and hardcore, demonstrating his commitment to developing a well-rounded knowledge of music composition. Building on this foundation, he started to explore both hip-hop and electronic productions soon after, and fused his knowledge of both traditional and experimental music genres. JayKode's passion for strong compositions and melodies stems from his classical training, a rarity among today's electronic music producers. Armed with an eclectic repertoire of originals, remixes, and bootlegs, JayKode has cultivated a rapidly growing fan base in dance music. Pioneering the genre he calls "Classical Bass," a tribute to his musical roots, he effortlessly blends melody-driven compositions with aggressive basslines and production techniques to push the tonal boundaries of electronic music. Now with characteristic sounds rooted in future bass, trap, and hip-hop, JayKode readily brings a unique set to every stage, spinning a wide variety of genres, from bass music to electro-house, twerk, moombahton, and even oldies, ensuring no two JayKode sets tell the same story. JayKode's originals and remixes are consistently supported by A-Trak, Borgore, Diplo, DJ Snake, Jack U, RL Grime, The Chainsmokers, and many more - but his most significant exposure came from Skrillex, who featured his remix of Beyonce's "Drunk In Love" during his iconic set at Coachella 2014. Since then, he has released tracks on Ultra Records, Big Beat Records, Atlantic Records, Fool's Gold Records, Buygore Records, Elysian Records, Main Course Records, Arkade Records, and Unborn Records. He's also seen his remix of Galantis' "Runaway (U&I)" soar up Hype Machine, claiming the #1 spot on the overall charts. Some of his most recent successes comes from his collaboration with Party Thieves on "Origin," which debuted at the top of the Beatport charts, and his remix of "Closer" by the Chainsmokers and Halsey.
Champagne Drip, the newest musical incarnation of Los Angeles-based producer Sam Pool, was born out of a philosophy that innovation springs from inspiration. Pool had carved out a unique place for himself in the bass music community; performing under the moniker of SPL for over 10 years and releasing drum & bass, dubstep, and trap-oriented music on respected labels such as Barcode, Tech Itch, Evol Intent, Sub Human, Rottunn, and SMOG Recordings. SPL’s music was fully immersed in sound design, a musical landscape comprised of melodic, dark, and refined touches. By the Summer of 2014, Pool came to the realization that he had pushed the SPL project to its sonic boundaries and in order to evolve musically, he would need a new project to explore lighter textures and richer melodies. Rooted in jungle and bass music and built around elements of blippy 8-bit sounds, arpeggios, and lush 80s synths, Champagne Drip launched as a decidedly tropical and uplifting sounding project. Operating at first in anonymity, Champagne Drip made a big splash thru the release of official remixes of Bassnectar (Amorphous Music) and Elliphant (Mad Decent). Shortly thereafter, he released his debut EP “Radio Bikini” on Mad Decent in September of 2014. Over the first year of the project’s history, press outlets were fascinated with the unique sound, but also with uncovering the identity of the secretive producer behind the music. “Radio Bikini” was subsequently remixed by electronic upstarts Big Wild, Lazerdisk, Mayhem, and Son of Kick and released in the Spring of 2015 as “Remix Bikini”. In the Fall of 2015, Champagne Drip released his 2nd EP for Mad Decent, “Journey Into The Champagne Sea”. Whereas his first EP explored more overtly tropical overtones, “Journey” went into deeper and darker musical territory. After spending one full year refining his sound in the studio, he finally revealed himself as the former SPL in 2016; performing across the US at such festivals as Mysteryland, WTFest?, Imagine, Enchanted Forest, and Lights All Night. Building up anticipation for his next original recordings, Champagne Drip released the stand alone single “Open Your Eyes”, which was featured on the official Bernie Sanders Presidential campaign fundraising compilation “Rave4Bernie”. Official remixes for Grandtheft (Mad Decent), Cardinox (Warner Brothers), and Dillon Francis & NGHTMRE (Mad Decent) followed. Champagne Drip capped off an already busy 2016 with the release of two new EPs; “Poseidon” via Quality Goods Records and “Of Course I Still Love You” via Saturate Records. Official remixes for Zeds Dead & Diplo, UZ, and DAWN all saw early 2017 releases. Champagne Drip is set to have his biggest year yet in 2017, with multiple EPs scheduled for release on Deadbeats Records as well as forthcoming remixes for 12th Planet and Mayhem, which are due for Summer releases.
19 year old experimental trap and hip hop wunderkind Woolymammoth may have only just graduated high school, but he has already made serious noise in the scene. His debut “Tricks EP” on Buygore Records was hailed as “the filthiest thing you’ll hear all day” and a product of “one of the year’s most inventive musical minds.” Wooly, or Jason Wool as he is known to his friends, has already completed his first Australian tour and is looking forward to continuing his astonishing growth into 2016.
In its earliest stages, Dr. Ozi was an imaginary friend; the figment of a child’s imagination. Giant, strong and extraordinary, Dr. Ozi could outrun cars and jump over buildings with ease. He was often seen flipping trucks, breaking branches and dangling from electrical wires. Like his creator, Dr. Ozi was unparalleled and unique. And like his creator, Dr. Ozi was never held down by expectations. Since Dr. Ozi’s inception, Toronto-based Nix Chohan has been breaking molds and infiltrating dance floors with uniquely upbeat but relentless sounds of heavy synths and bass. And with releases on Buygore, Firepower and Uplink Audio Dr. Ozi has enjoyed recognition from bass music greats including Skrillex, Nero, Zomboy, Adventure Club & more. Innovative in more than just his music production, the powerhouse artist has a great sense for the drama required of a live performance. Dr. Ozi has captivated the audiences of countless lauded nightclubs and international festivals such as WEMF and Medalla Light. A proud force and trademark of Toronto’s talent, Dr. Ozi will continue to push boundaries and brighten dimly-lit clubs with his flashing, fast paced sound. Without a doubt, Dr. Ozi is on the way to becoming the next big act to come out of Toronto’s underground dance scene.
A Boy & A Girl
Releases on Mad Decent, Big Beat/Atlantic Records, Play Me Records and more. Not for the timid and not for the tame, A Boy & A Girl makes heavy dance music.

In addition to breaking out with an official remix of Dillon Francis and NGHTMRE's hit “Need You,” a remix of their song “Stampede” featuring Armanni Reign and Reid Speed was included in Excision’s massive 2016 Shambhala Mix.
