::::: Carnage :::::

“Making music is about having an impact,” exclaims DJ Carnage.

It’s easy to feel the impact on every track the Los Angeles-based artist produces or remixes. With a versatile mindset and deft approach, he siphons electro, hip hop, pop, and trap into an intoxicating brew unlike anything out there. It’s dirty, defiant, and diverse.

Carnage embraced music at a very young age. Before moving to the suburbs of Maryland, he grew up in Nicaragua and Guatemala. It gave him an international consciousness and perspective at a young age that would pervade his art. In order to get through long car rides with his mom, he’d make mix CDs of everything from Kanye West to Michael Jackson, and they’d listen to them together. It was with mom’s encouragement that he began actually building his own tracks.

He recalls, “It’s funny because one day my mom was like, ‘Why don’t you make your own beats?’ I’d never thought of it before, so she bought me Fruity Loops. From there, I just got hooked.”

He carved out a sizable local following in Maryland, slinging independent mixtapes and solidifying an online presence. Niles from The Cataracs actually stumbled upon his MySpace page and immediately became a fan. Their correspondence turned into a creative partnership and led to Carnage’s signing with Indie Pop.

One of his first projects under that banner was a tripped-out and captivating remix of Yuna’s “Live Your Life”. Soon, Tiesto began spinning the cut on his popular Club Life podcast, while Paul Oakenfold inserted it into regular rotation on his radio show, Planet Perfecto. Carnage began turning heads. His “Festival Trap” remix of Hardwell’s “Spaceman” soon exceeded 100k plays on Soundcloud, and he teamed up with Theophilus London and ASAP Rocky for the 2012 single, “Big Spender”, and he co-produced The Cataracs “All You”, featuring Waka Flocka Flame and Kaskade.

Everything simply laid the groundwork for the release of his proper debut, “Bang”, on Fool’s Gold though. It’s an incendiary instrumental with a big hip hop bounce and a dubstep drop at just the right moment. “It’s really massive,” he enthuses. “It’s a rap record with a huge drop. You never hear that kind of climax in hip hop or trap records. It’s the perfect introduction to who I am because it touches on so many genres.”

The single’s B-side is a grimy and guttural gem that sees him collaborate with 15-year-old Chicago underground rap sensation, Katie Got Bandz. It’s bound to get the internet going crazy.

There’s nothing quite like seeing Carnage live though. Every show explodes based off his hyperkinetic energy and formidable presence. He’s rocked stages at Nocturnal Wonderland, Electric Daisy Carnival, Coachella, and more as well as performing alongside Borgore, A-Trak, The Cataracs, and countless others.

“I’m a big black guy who loves to rage,” he chuckles. “I’m not what you expect. I feed off the crowd and go for it.”

That’s why Carnage’s impact will be felt for a long time to come.


::::: Paris Blohm :::::

In 2013, after producing for 7 years, LA native and former bedroom producer Paris Blohm gathered the support of Tiesto, Hardwell, and Sander Van Doorn, to name a few. His anthemic productions also caught the attention of music industry giant Interscope Records, with whom he signed a management deal.

Paris has since taken the dance music world by storm, flooding the internet with both free and label releases, garnering the attention of the scene’s biggest blogs and websites.

With several exciting collaborations slated for the coming months, and a rapidly expanding fanbase, all eyes are on Paris… and he’s just getting started.


::::: Dzeko & Torres :::::

Canadian Big Room duo Dzeko & Torres just had the year every aspiring EDM DJ/Producer could wish to have. In the last six months they have exploded onto every major blog including features from Thissongissick, BeatMyday, & Dancing Astronaut with their tracks getting some BIG nods, plays, and support from the likes of Tiesto, Hardwell, Chuckie, W&W, Bingo Players, Afrojack, Deniz Koyu & Steve Aoki to name drop a few.

Even after a massive bootleg they did for Of Monsters & Mens – “King and Lionheart” that came out earlier this year topping the HypeMachine charts at #1 and garnering over 95,000 plays on their soundcloud, it took a few more stellar tracks to really get the community buzzing about Julian Dzeko & Luis Torres. Their “Who is Ready To Jump” Remix they did for Chuckie has received over 100,000 plays on soundcloud and amazing support worldwide by today’s top big room artists, with notable features on Tiesto’s Club Life radio show, Hardwell opening with it at his Sensation White Amsterdam set, and Chuckie himself playing it at Tomorrowland.Their 2nd #1 Hype Machine chart topping track came with the FREE download release of their Animal Kingdom – “Strange Attactor” remix.

Their latest release (Nov 12th) titled “Y3AH” came by request of Laidback Lukes Mixmash Records imprint, which saw them collaborating with fellow EDM up-and-comers ANSOL and gave them their first top 20 charted track on Beatport. With a slew of collaborations coming up in 2013, their brand new bi-weekly RAVE’N Podcast and their first EP released on Dim Mak Decemeber 18th, the future certainly holds a lot of promise for these two young Canadian talents.
