12th Planet is the electronic music pioneer whose off-axis beats and subsonic frequencies orbit on the forefront of global bass culture. Recently named "Los Angeles dubstep god" by Rolling Stone, 12th Planet AKA John Dadzie and his influential label SMOG Records are widely credited for bringing the British movement stateside, and continue to be a crucial force in the evolution of electronic music. 12th Planet's DJ sets now include a myriad of styles that reflect the current, diverse landscape of EDM music and continue to display his role as an essential tastemaker in the dance music world.
When it comes to good music, Kenny Beats and Ryan Marks know how to bring it. Together, the NYC hip-hop producer and LA electronic producer make up LOUDPVCK, a dynamic, genre-mixing duo that refuses to be bound to just one category of music. Performing together since 2012, the two met while attending Berklee College of Music
where they joined forces and haven't looked back since. Kenny got his start in the music business by producing rap artists such as Ab Soul, Schoolboy Q, and Smoke DZA, while Ryan was out on the west coast producing and DJing electronic music. They've collaborated on countless tracks and energetic remixes. LOUDPVCK has worked with everyone from Paper Diamond to Dada Life, and continue to mix things up on the music charts with individual projects and outside collaborations. The distinctive sound the duo makes is a direct combination of both their influences, with beats in almost every sub-genre of EDM mixed with a hip-hop approach. The most important thing when it comes to making music is "overall musicality and everything being in its right place," according to Ryan, while Kenny adds, "We try very hard to make sure nothing goes overlooked or unnoticed, even when it's the simplest idea. Also, being in the right space to make music is extremely important for us, which means cracking a lot of jokes and smoking violent amounts of weed."
Rockhill, now known to millions as Kove, first broke on to the scene with his track 'Searching' which became a 2013 summer smash, receiving major support from Radio
1 and reaching the #1 spot on Beatport's D&B chart. His next single, 'Love For You' released at the end of 2013, became an instant underground smash and firmly secured his tracks as dance floor ammo for the UK's DJing elite. 2014 also saw him hit the UK charts with 'Way We Are' reaching number 30. Kove has become increasingly in demand as a re-mixer, having been asked to deliver his take for established artists Bastille, Chase & Status, John Newman, Foxes, Example
and Zeds Dead. Last summer also saw his stock rise as a DJ, with a regular slot for Together at Ibiza's famous Amnesia to tearing up stages of the biggest festivals on both sides of the Atlantic.
