Biography
Almost out of nowhere, Los Angeles’ Dillon Francis has broken from the throng of young electronic music dj/producers. With a stream of world-class remixes and releases, Dillon has caught the attention of some of the top players in club land, including Steve Aoki, Diplo, Will I. Am, Drop The Lime, Sinden, and Tittsworth, to name some. In less than a year his blistering productions have been heavily supported by Major Lazer, who opened their show with “Westside!,” a Dutch House-flavored monster that was consistently rinsed by top djs on both sides of the pond, including Sinden and Steve Aoki. The tune is finally seeing a proper release on Diplo’s Mad Decent label, where Dillon will be releasing his “Masta Blasta” EP as well in the near future.. From his first dubstep release on Play Me Records, the heavy “Take Me High” peaked at No. 13 on the Beatport dubstep chart and was played in full by Rusko in every one of his sets for his current OMG tour. In the coming months, Dillon will have releases on Mad Decent, Dim Mak, Top Billin’, as well as Plant Music, where he will be releasing his next club EP. At ease behind the turntables and in the studio, in the electro world and in dubstep, Dillon is what you would call an open-format electronic dj who sees no delineation between making music and playing it. He has gotten huge support from the most important dance music blogs (Dim Mak, Mad Decent, Discobelle, Gotta Dance Dirty) ever since releasing his first bootlegs last year, and 2011 promises to be Dillon’s breakout year.

Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll (born 1991), commonly known by his stage name Kygo, is a Norwegian musician and remixer.
He is best known for his remix of the track "I See Fire", which has been played 8 million times on Soundcloud and around 40 million times on YouTube. He has accumulated over 80 million views on his music on Soundcloud and YouTube. After a break-through in 2014, Kygo was asked by Coldplay vocalist Chris Martin to create a remix for the song "Midnight"
Kygo started to learn to play the piano at age six through lessons. He decided to have a go at remixes and creating electronic music after discovering Avicii at age 15-16. After receiving over 80 million hits on YouTube and Soundcloud, Kygo was contacted by both Avicii and Chris Martin of Coldplay to create official remixes of one the artists' songs.
His remix of "I See Fire" entered Romania's Top 40 and has remained there for 14 weeks, peaking at Number 2 as of June 3rd, 2014.

James Hersey (born 15 July 1988) is an independent solo project/band from Vienna, Austria. The guitarist writes, produces, and performs soulful songs with unique pop sensibility and vocals. Launched in Vienna, Austria (home to half of his family) in 2010, James rapidly gained support from major alternative outlets as well as mainstream media. His current single "Don't Say Maybe" is charting in the Top-5, and his mixtape "TWELVE" earned him an Artist Of The Month title at Radio FM4.
Sold-out shows in his hometown, as well as support slots and collaborations with the likes of Train, Left Boy, and Manu Delago (Bjork) promise a long career for the young singer songwriter.
