DJ/Producer [Breaks, Electro House, Drum and Bass]
Rocking dance floors since 1998, Deformaty has been an unrelenting, and powerful force in the Electronic Dance Music community. His music is often powerful and emotional, riddled with massive drops, huge builds, dirty bass lines, and dreamy pads. People have been known to be overwhelmed to tears during some of his sets. He began to DJ in the Psytrance scene in Portland, playing Psychill, Downtempo, Lounge and Ambient, but his true passion lied in heavy energy genres, like Psytrance, DNB, Techno, and House. His skill as a DJ is impressive alone, often flashing some turntablism a midst smooth, flawless mixing, seemingly effortlessly on vinyl and digital medias. He has had a lifetime love and background with music, playing guitar and bass in Punk and Jazz bands, so EDM production came naturally to him, and eventually became a very versatile producer, pumping out quality Techno, House, Breaks, Dubstep, Trance, and DNB. He officially began releasing tracks in 2005, with 5 EPs released with the net label, Manifest NW, and a 3 track EP released in early 2012 with Sanex Music and Eastar Records, and now has smashing releases with heavy international record labels such as Kick It Recordings, Serial Sickness, VIM Records, and more. He has already had several charted tracks and is expecting many more. This DJ/Producer has made the industry his life; he lives, and breathes Electronic Dance Music.
Deformaty is a hard hitting Breakbeat artist from the Northwest USA. A DJ since 1998 and producer since 2005, this dance floor shredding juggernaut has consistently left his audiences in awe, and is known for overwhelming some to tears. His unique style of breaks, with electro, complextro, tech, and psychedelic flavors, has earned him releases with multiple well respected record labels, and is considered, locally, to be the king of filthy breaks.
ALEXANDER LIGHTSPEED SANTOS (Pulsar, Move Music, TRXX) Dj and Producer
Quickly becoming known as Portland's Trip-Pop Electro House/Breaks artist, Lightspeed has been working tirelessly to bring fresh sounds and energy to the nebula of Northwest EDM. His signature sound creates an atmosphere with synthy electro breaks on a terrestrial foundation of dark, grimy basslines. He became the father of Pulsar Productions (facebook.com/pulsarpdx) after being encouraged by his peers and fans to bring his local scene to the next level. Pulsar has since formed a kind of collective of people who fully contribute their talents to managing all facets of the company. and alchohol monitors will be With their help, Lightspeed is in his third year of throwing sold out dance parties for Northwest audiences.
His newest collaboration with Deformaty has landed them 1 EP on Serial Sickness, and two singles on VIM Records, with more secrets in the works. Recently, he has been producing and preforming remix edits of his favorite tracks and samples, while working with fellow producers such as Chris Cornish to release original work. Lightspeed is always pushing himself and his music to the limits of what's possible, which is where new discoveries are made.

A consummate performer, GitDown never maps out his set ahead of time, opting to craft sets spontaneously from within the context they are intended for. This improvisational element makes each of his sets a one of a kind personal expression, never again to be repeated. A strong force in the northwest music scene for over a decade now, GitDown is never locked down by one genre of music. Justin simply says, "I like to play really good music of all sorts". GitDown rocks crowds from outdoor summer massives to small town dive bars with inventive and progressive ways to mix it all up together for a pleasurable smooth blend with heavy bass lines and epic drops.

DJ CALEKO (Blue Sphere, Prodigal Son Recordings) DJ
Started playing records in the mid 90's. Trance was the first type of EDM he learned to mix. He soon got a taste for the late 90's UK Hard House and NRG. In the early days of the Portland EDM scene Caleko threw several successful events.
Moving to Florida in 2001 he found himself playing DJ competitions. He started transferring as many genres as he could in a 20 minute set. The mix competitions widened his musical horizons as a dance music DJ. It gave him an ear for playing sounds that he hadn't before.
All these years he has been dedicated to practicing no matter where life took him and now his style of playing with music shows it. From matching beats and dropping baselines to cutting and scratching. His sick style of mix mastery is insane to behold.
Throughout the years he has missed the North West scene and family!! After being away for 12 years he has returned home to destroy dance floors and earn your love!
"As the 20th century came to an end, tension rose in anticipation for some kind of chaos. Raised in Frankfurt Germany, Seattle born Enzo was exposed to the heavy breaks and deep baselines of Drum and Bass. Due to service obligations Billy spent the next few years on and off sea duty where he was given the opportunity to Dj clubs in Turkey, Greece, Spain and the UAE. This fueled the fire for him to wanna solidify his role in the EDM community upon his return. The day Enzo pulled in the booking's began to flood in. The next few years ran host to many residences and gigs in clubs all over the east coast and the south allowing him to share space with some of the best DJ's and producers in the world. Names like Dieselboy, Gein, AK1200, Evol Intent and Dioptrics to list a few. Enzo has done it all, national and international. When he's not in front of a crowd, he's in the studio hard at work, crafting his sound and sharpening his productions. His music is intricate, unique, full of emotion and always next level. Currently you can catch Enzo filling space in some of the top venues with a barrage of new released and unreleased Bass music productions guaranteed to bring heat to any crowd. "

Now a year and half later she has developed a unique ear for music and a wonderful stage performance, working hard creating a fun and positive vibe.

Livey Beha is a 18-year-old vivacious vocalist with a volcano of vehemence for everything she does- which includes but is not limited to music, learning, baking, caring about people, politics and the world, reading, laughing, knitting, and walking. Fresh out of Tacoma School of the Arts, Livey is taking a gap year to focus on her music before she becomes a USC Trojan (fight on!). Laid over a combination of power melodies, acoustic guitars and keyboards, the meanings of Livey's songs are driven by the simple, human-centric lyrics written with twofold purpose, to be cathartic and relatable. Her debut EP is currently in the works and is set to release late 2013.
"Dawnchaser wants the world to know the feeling of standing on an alpine ridge; to be a small point in the raw vastness of the wilderness, and leave the worries of the world behind. He feels his music should be what moves everyone to explore, and be what fills their ears as they face the elements - whether it be hiking in the mountains, kayaking by the coast, or spelunking in the deep places of the world.
An internationally-acclaimed producer, Dawnchaser's unique brand of high energy melodic trance is signed with Drizzly Music, EML Recordings, and Elliptical Recordings, and has been supported by the likes of Markus Schulz, John Askew, Darren Tate, Wavetraxx, Suzy Solar, and many others. Drawing on everything from classical, to folk, to the many forms of electronic music for his inspiration, his sound is one you'll never forget - and one you can't help but move your feet to.
On stage, Dawnchaser too, is a force of nature. Blending his signature Adventure Trance sound with breaks, drum n' bass, techno, hard dance, progressive and electro, he's rocked parties all across the Pacific Northwest, and was the first DJ from Washington to perform in the Republic of Georgia. He hosts a weekly radio show on KSVR 91.7 FM, and helped found The Venture Crew, an event production company in Spokane, with DJ's Shauk, Razmataz, and Go-Rilla. Today, they're one of the most respected show production crews in eastern Washington, and their artists have played some of the Northwest's biggest events.
