Two-time-Grammy-winning artist/producer/DJ David Guetta cemented his status as a genre-busting hitmaker whose in-your-face fusion of electro and hip-hop beautifully warps the pop landscape. Now, with his fifth studio album Nothing But The Beat, Guetta builds on that breakthrough momentum and takes his decades-spanning career to a frenetic new level marked by bigger hooks and more brain-bending beats.

It’s been a phenomenal few years for Example. One of the hottest acts to impact the charts, his certified gold selling album ‘Won’t Go Quietly’ has seen the London rapper well and truly on a roll. The follow up Playing With Shadows topped the album charts on its release last year and featured the hit single Changed The Way You Kissed Me.

Live, Benny Bennassi continues to give incendiary performances at festivals and hotspots worldwide touring the world rocking clubs and events with his unstoppable energy. His dj style is easy to describe…. it’s kinda electro, sort of house-tec, dirty and cool, sweaty and smooth…. A Grammy Award winning artist, remixer, and producer Benny goes out of this world on his third full-length solo album, Electroman embracing a myriad of styles including electro, house, pop, R&B and hip-hop.

Rizzle Kicks are one of the most exciting teenage talents to emerge in the past year. Their first single ‘Down With The Trumpets’ was released in June 2011 in the UK and has since sold over 250,000 copies and notched up over 4.5 million Youtube views (and counting!). Their debut album Stereo Typical achieved Gold status and was a top five chart hit and also featured the Fatboy Slim produced single Mama Do The Hump. The 19 year old duo also featured on Olly Murs’ number one single Heart Skips A Beat and went on to be nominated for three MOBO Awards.

Whether its flipping Beethoven’s 5th for the 4am crowd; eight #1 tracks on Beatport; remix/collabs with Britney Spears, Timbaland and Black Eyed Peas; festival highlight performances at Coachella ’10 and Electric Daisy Carnival’s ’10 and 11 Wolfgang Gartner has been electro-house’s dark (work) horse. Weekend in America, his debut LP for Ultra Music, is the Grammy nominated American DJ and producer becoming dance music’s one-man parallel universe, outpacing electro-house and outdoing himself.

Tommy Trash brings the image of a true rock superstar to the dance music stage. ARIA Award-nominated DJ is one of dance music’s rising stars. Tommy has dominated charts and dance floors alike with over 50 originals and remixes, quickly establishing himself as one of dance music’s most talented and prolific artists.
