Bonobo

Bonobo’s rise has been stealthy but unstoppable, and Si Green, the man behind it all, is now one of the biggest electronic artists of our time. As a DJ and with the Bonobo live band, he’s now played to millions of people across the world in shows and festivals, and each album has been bigger than the last with 2017’s Migration hitting the top five in the UK and top ten in the Netherlands and Belgium and getting untold press coverage everywhere. During this rise, he also achieved the rare feat for a British dance artist of breaking America – and not with the kind of high-octane shock-tactic rave beats and audiovisual spectaculars that characterised the EDM explosion, but with subtle, emotional, ambiguous and musicianly work that demands long and deep immersion. This was cemented yet further by two 2018 Grammy nominations, one for Best Dance/Electronic Album for Migration and the other for Best Dance/Electronic Track for ‘Bambro Koyo Ganda (feat. Innov Gnawa)’.
It began in the southern English countryside, perhaps appropriately for someone whose music often has pastoral undertones. Si’s upbringing was rustic, first in Hampshire, then a little to the east in Sussex. His mother stayed at home raising Si and his sisters, and his father worked in the pharmaceutical industry by day – but in his spare time was a musician in the English traditional folk scene, achieving some renown for his accordion technique. It was a quietly cultured upbringing, but the quietness of the countryside also brings boredom – and with that came a love of going out to the woods with friends, first just a few around a campfire, then later in his teens with many more to go looking for illegal raves.
Si soon gravitated to Brighton on the south coast of Sussex, a town long possessed of a hedonistic attitude and home to a thriving club scene. By his late teens, as well as rave music, he’d soaked up experimental indie and shoegaze sounds, and was passionate about hip hop to the point that he’d already started digging back into the music that was sampled by its beat-makers, discovering funk, jazz and more. And Brighton’s music scene was the prefect place to indulge this eclecticism. Although, in the mid-1990s, it was best known for pumping house music, big beat and hippie ravers playing Goa trance, there was also a deep rooted and open minded funk and hip hop scene – where DJs’ playlists extended into everything from Afrobeat to old psychedelic rock to Brazilian grooves to drum’n’bass – which he dived into.
It was here that he met Amon Tobin, then just getting established, who he watched and learned from in the studio. He also hooked up with Rob Luis, a DJ mainstay in the town, and Will Holland aka Quantic. The three of them started a club night called Phonic:Hoop, with an anything-goes-as-long-as-it’s-funky ethos, and in 2000 Rob signed Si’s first productions to his fledgling Tru Thoughts label. The drifting, dreamy beats and psychedelic sitars of first single “Terrapin” caught people’s imagination across the UK and beyond, and Si started to think that an actual career in music might be possible. Not long after his first album on Tru Thoughts, he was signed to the larger Ninja Tune, and began the steady record-by-record ascent that has brought him to where he is today.
It wasn’t quite sure where he fit, though. His success caught the tail end of trip hop and the rise of what became known in the early 2000s as chillout – while when he made his first tentative trips to the USA he discovered he was bracketed with a very nerdy kind of abstract hip hop scene. But he was always a step or two removed from all of these: complex, emotive and musical, but also fun. As it transpired, there could not have been a better home for him at this point than Ninja Tune. They too were negotiating the territory as 90s breakbeat culture dissipated, and were exploring new spaces and committing to letting artists develop in the long term. Instead of chasing trends or being expected to repeat himself, Si was given license to do his own thing.
All of which goes a long way to explaining the stately confidence of Bonobo’s music, and also the steady nature of his rise. Given the unique artistic support that Ninja Tune could offer, he was able to let each piece fall into part at the right time. Absorbing the UK bass developments of the nascent dubstep scene and everything else that was happening around him, Si’s sound matured, and his audience grew. Around 2006, he discovered that a mystique and fan community had grown around him in the burgeoning social networks of music messageboards, filesharing networks and MySpace, and that there was now a huge demand for his music on its own terms – rather than as part of a fad – in the States. So he began touring bigger and bigger venues there, then gradually building a live band and playing headline shows.
And that’s how it’s progressed. Si relocated to New York and then to Los Angeles. Each record and tour has been bigger, always with the support of Ninja Tune who excel at letting things unfold at their own pace. There’s been milestones like the hookup with vocalist Andreya Triana that helped make Black Sands such a distinctive piece of work in 2010 and opened up new levels of support and reputation for the live shows, like the gigantic show in London’s Alexandra Palace that marked the climax of the North Borders tour  – a tour which in total would see him going around the world for three years solid. The big picture has been one of slow and steady growth, as evidenced by the fact that the Migration Tour will wrap up once again with two homecoming shows at Alexandra Palace. Other recent live highlights include headline festivals slots at Wilderness, the Manchester International Festival and a main stage performance at Coachella.
There’s been a lot of fun and triumph along the way, and pain too. Touring so relentlessly isn’t conducive to stable relationships (“it comes in like a tornado and wrecks everything,” says Si wistfully), and he’s not long since had to deal with his parents’ passing too: all aspects that feed into Migration’s emotional depths and conceptual themes of change and flux. But tying it all together is absolute dedication to crafting the Bonobo project without compromise, that hasn’t changed in a decade and a half. Si is still close with many of the same friends from his Brighton days, and though he is painting on a vastly bigger canvas than back then, you can still feel the good-time grooves, dancefloor scholarship and delight in detail that fed into those first Tru Thoughts records.
What comes next? In a sense more of the same: like all Bonobo records Migration is one that is only going to grow as people absorb its subtly unfolding narratives and the rich layers of visual art around it courtesy of photographer and filmmaker Neil Krug, and as the band takes it on the road. Now, though, Bonobo has a new set of musical kindred spirits: the likes of Four Tet, Caribou, Floating Points aswell as Jon Hopkins and Nick Murphy FKA Chet Faker (who both feature on Migration) are all equally steadily on the rise, showing that huge audiences can be reached with music that’s cerebral, emotional diverse, and laid-back without being anodyne.
Perhaps it’s generation EDM growing up and wanting something subtler, perhaps it’s the eclecticism that the Internet afforded reaching maturity, but whatever the root causes, there’s a big part of the zeitgeist that Bonobo has helped to define. All of which means new audiences and new challenges. Si Green might profess to have outstripped his own goals, and to be very contented with his success, but another chapter of the Bonobo story is starting, and you can bet on it containing as much excitement and constant exploration as everything he’s done up until now.

Lane 8

Rather than pander to the purists or create music for DJs alone, Daniel Goldstein aka Lane 8 has always tread his own, distinctive path - perhaps best summed up by his phones-free event and label concept This Never Happened. 
The concept is a simple one: remove all phones and cameras from the event, get back to connecting with the music and the people around you. And it is one that has been embraced with passion by Lane 8’s dedicated fanbase and the dance community at large with over. Since debuting the concept with a sold out show at San Francisco’s Mezzanine in 2016, Lane 8 has taken the concept to over 60 shows in four different continues - playing to over 50,000 completely connected fans in the process. 
In tandem with the events, Daniel’s output on the TNH label has stood out for its integrity and artistry whether on emotional epics like ‘Little Voices’ or upbeat groovers such as ‘With Me’. Always defined by a melodic touch, TNH is the culmination of a steady, assured rise over recent years.
This musical progression continued this year when Lane 8 released his sophomore album ‘Little By Little’ on the TNH imprint. With it he delivered a record that distilled his unique flair for melodic, heart-warming electronics that are both classy and quirky, traversing reflective electronica, instrumental club epics and leftfield pop moments alike. 
 Representing the full arc of Lane 8’s melodic, uniquely crafted sound, the LP teamed with vocal features from Poliça, Australia’s Fractures, J.F. July and Patrick Baker - receiving rave reviews everywhere from Mixmag, DJ Mag and KCRW as a result.
Following its release, Lane 8 embarked on a 37 date global tour which included sell out shows at Brooklyn Steel in New York, The Warfield Theatre in San Francisco, The Novo in LA, Melkweg in Amsterdam and Phonox in London.

Cashmere Cat

The cat is finally about to
be out of the bag. Not that Cashmere Cat has exactly kept a clandestine
profile, working as he has with so many of the top names in pop, R&B, and
hip-hop, from Kanye West to Ariana Grande -- a track record that's threatened
to make him a household name just as a producer. But as a recording artist in
his own right, he's taking off the wraps with the release of his first
full-length album under his own nom de plume. The spring
release sports guest appearances from a who's who of contemporary music,
including The Weeknd, Selena Gomez, Camila Cabello, 2 Chainz, Tory Lanez, Francis
& the Lights, Starrah, and other Cat lovers dropping in to help usher him
into the ranks of true marquee artists.

When he was still on his first life, the plaudits came in just for his
behind-the-scenes work. "The
introverted producer is pop's new not-so-secret weapon," raved Fader. Not so very many years ago, the artist formerly known as Magnus August
Høiberg was a
fledgling DJ in his native Norway, doing ear-grabbing remixes for famous artists like Lana Del Rey and
Drake... some of them authorized, some not. His skills attracted an American
audience that eventually grew to include super-producer Benny Blanco, a mentor
who encouraged him to come to New York. Their sensibilities meshed, with Blanco
"bringing me in because he believed that the weirder shit I was doing
could work in a more poppy sense."

As an American immigrant, he quickly became recognized for his co-production
work on records as diverse as Ludacris' "Party Girls," Ryn Weaver's "Octahate,"
Charli XCX's "Break the Rules," Britney Spears' "Just Luv Me,"
and Tinashe's "All Hands on Deck," earning his first Grammy
nomination for Tory Lanez' "Luv." Ariana Grande not only used him on
record but took him out on tour as her opening act. When the Weeknd's Starboy was finally unveiled in late
2016, four of its most wildly well-received songs had Cashmere Cat at the helm,
so it's no surprise that the Weeknd has returned the favor by coming over as a
featured artist on his producer pal's feature-length debut.

Cashmere Cat traces a realization about his own style and potential to working
with Kanye West on "Wolves," a song from The Life of Pablo. "The way that record came out set the
standard for what I want my own music to sound like," he says. "It
was a new sound for me, and it made me feel like I can do really beautiful,
weird music that isn't just banging rap songs or big-feeling pop music. A lot
of my old sound will still be in the new record," he promises, "but I
think I'm influenced by a lot of different music that I wasn't before -- like,
I've been listening to a lot of Arca (the forward-leaning Venezuelan
producer/DJ who's worked with Bjork). I hope and believe that I'm doing
something that's worthy of an album and not just something that will bang in
the club." Of course, if it just so happens to be strange and gorgeous and make the floor explode, too, that'll
be something to purr about.

Keys N Krates

Adam Tune - Drums
David Matisse - Keyboards
Jr. Flo - Turntables
Since forming a decade ago in their native Toronto, Keys N Krates have carved their own path via a bass-centric, sample-driven sound which melds the realms of electronic, hip-hop and beyond. The group-composed of drummer Adam Tune, keyboardist David Matisse and turntablist Jr. Flo.-has built a venerable reputation as one of the leading live electronic acts today on the strength of their onstage instrumentation and energetic sets. Keys N Krates now elevate their craft with Cura, their debut artist album.
Reflecting a sonic evolution many years in the making, Cura sees Keys N Krates evolving from revered instrumental beat-makers into musically sophisticated producers and songwriters. Cura embodies Keys N Krates' matured style of now: soulful electronic music created with an organic touch, allowing for open experimentation and sonic curiosity. On "Music to My Ears," dynamic strings and reverberant bass provide a joyous backbone to Grammy-nominated vocalist Tory Lanez' uplifting hook. On "Glitter," a slow-burning romp through disco-tinged future R&B, the group slathers the groove-laden cut with satiny synths and distorted strings alongside the vocals of rising sensation Ambré. "Do What U Do" revisits the sample based, boom-bap beats and harmonious vocal layers that have become a keystone of the Keys N Krates aesthetic.
Elsewhere, the hard-hitting instrumental "Flute Loop," featuring Ouici, is a frenetic bomb exploding with trap-leaning muscle, while "My Night" boasts hallucinogenic production accentuated by 070 Shake's haunting sung / rap vocal. 
Keys N Krates first broke into the mainstream with the SOLOW EP (Dim Mak, 2013), featuring the breakthrough single "Dum Dee Dum," which recently received gold certification in the US in 2017. Since its release, the track's cheeky official music video was nominated for a Prism Prize by the Association for Music and Innovative Arts in Canada as well as a Berlin Music Video Award in Germany in 2014. In 2013, the group later released a remix of the track featuring a collection of buzzing Chicago-based rappers, including G.O.O.D. Music's Cyhi the Prynce as well as King Louie and Tree. Elsewhere, the group released "Keep It 100" (Mad Decent, 2014), a collaboration with producer/DJ Grandtheft, which was featured in a trailer for the animated film Minions in 2015 and won for Best EDM/Dance Video in the 2015 Much Music Video Awards in Canada. In 2016, Keys N Krates took home their first win at the Juno Awards in Canada in the Dance Recording of the Year category for their song "Save Me," off the Midnite Mass EP (Dim Mak, 2016), featuring British singer/songwriter Katy B. The group's discography also includes the Every Nite EP (Dim Mak, 2014) as well as numerous remixes. 
Originally formed as a live hip-hop act in 2008, Keys N Krates have since logged countless hours on the road via a relentless tour schedule and have been recognized for advancing the live performance aspect within electronic music. They have headlined their own tours and performed high-profile sets at the top international music festivals including Coachella, Sónar, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Tomorrowland, EDC Las Vegas, Pukkelpop, Bestival and more. Keys N Krates will spend 2018 on an extensive world tour in support of Cura, performing headlining shows across the US, Canada, and Europe, with additional shows in Asia and Australia. In-between tour stops, they are set to grace festival stages at Sónar Hong Kong, Ultra Music Festival, and Electric Forest.
While Cura marks the crew's debut full-length album, it, too, initiates a first step toward a new creative vision, a breakthrough in sound and a new beginning for Keys N Krates.
-John Ochoa, January 2018 
Cura from Keys N Krates is out February 2, 2018, on Dim Mak.

Shiba San

There's
much more to Shiba San than what meets the first listen. Leaving behind a
15-year long career of production experience in the French hip-hop scene, the
Parisian producer became fascinated with the sounds of Chicago house and was
inspired to create his own productions, infusing his hip-hop influence with the
soul of house music.

Then came 'Okay,' the track that "changed the way we listened to music"
(Dancing Astronaut) and became the anthem of 2014. It claimed the No. 1
position on Beatport's House chart for 82 days, remained in the House Chart's
Top 10 for over 180 days, was put on rotation by radio tastemakers like Pete
Tong, Annie Mac and Danny Howard and received support from the likes of Claude
VonStroke, Eats Everything, Green Velvet and nearly every major DJ under the
sun. Upon its release, Rolling Stone deemed 'Okay' a "global club
sensation in waiting," a prophetic description that couldn't have rung
more true as it remains a commanding moment in DJ sets even to this day.

But Shiba San is far from a one-hit wonder, following up "Okay" with
the award-winning track "Burn Like Fire" (Best Underground Track 2015
IDMA/WMC). With releases out on labels known and loved for their irresistible
tunes like Dirtybird and Suara, as well as his own imprint Basement Leak, he's
since seen his career launch off far and beyond the city limits of Paris.

Staying quiet on the public front, Shiba San remains a curious enigma to his
international fan base, allowing the music to do the talking for him. In
between releases and time spent concocting in the studio, the Miami-based
producer remains a mainstay on the nightlife circuit, hitting iconic festivals
including Coachella, EDC Las Vegas, Movement Detroit, The BPM Festival in
Mexico, The Warehouse Project, Stereosonic, Spring Awakening as well as
milestone venues like Output in New York, Ministry of Sound in London, Sankeys in
Ibiza, Exchange in Los Angeles and The Mid in Chicago.

Ending last year with two impressive Dirtybird releases 'Up & Down' and 'You
Know What?,' Shiba San began 2017 with a hearty compilation release on his own
Basement Leak label featuring his standout tune 'Drop It' before embarking on a
North American co-headlining tour with the esteemed MK. Later this spring,
expect to hear a collaboration with Will Clarke on Dirtybird as well as a
summer release on Lee Foss' Repopulate Mars. It's set to be another cardinal
year for Shiba San and it's guaranteed to be an exhilarating ride... just the
way he likes it.

What So Not

What So Not has been spearheading Australia's latest electronica revival with boundary-pushing bass since 2011. Hailing from Sydney, What So Not dominated the city's club circuit with his dancefloor-ready heaters, including a window-shattering remix of Major Lazer's 'Get Free,' which became omnipresent at festivals around the world, since then, What So Not been streamed 100's of millions of times, releasing records through Sweat It Out and Skrillex's OWSLA.

The Australian-gone-global star has now appeared on the world's grandest stages & was given a hero's welcome when he returned Down Under with A-Trak for his biggest headline shows to date and for a legendary performance at Splendour In The Grass. He then stormed the stage at Splendour In The Grass, with his set featuring surprise appearances from George Maple and Tkay Maidza. All three parties also collaborated alongside Baauer on the gritty banger 'Ghost.'

Recently, What So Not also remixed fellow Australian breakthrough stars RÜFÜS on 'Innerbloom,' resulting in a tastefully heavy reinterpretation of the nonchalant house track that has been described as "a masterpiece of a masterpiece." His latest original single 'Buried' displays similar maturity and sonic restraint, again featuring George Maple as well as Atlanta rapper Rome Fortune. Arriving with a cinematic video premiered by international tastemakers Pitchfork, the ambitious track is indicative of the great strides that What So Not has taken in his young career.

'Buried' is just a taste of his upcoming Divide & Conquer EP, a culmination of knowledge and collection of sounds gained throughout his travels. The release sees What So Not further discarding genres while employing a consistent narrative, resulting in his most thematic work to date. Divide & Conquer will be displayed with full force in the live arena, with What So Not touring the project throughout the United States on a colossal tour across September and October. He will then travel to Australia and welcome in the new year.

Amtrac

With the titles of producer, musician, DJ and vocalist to his name, versatility has become Caleb Cornett’s calling card since the release of his debut LP Came Along in 2011. Raised on an eclectic palate of musical influences from Pink Floyd, The Prodigy and The Chemical Brothers since his childhood in Morehead, Kentucky, his vast musical exposure has led to an unrivaled diversity in his performances as well as across his own productions.

Never content to settle, Amtrac’s musical mood and influences change with each passing season, spanning across disco, indie-dance and deep house. From the Stevie Wonder sampled “Those Days” to the house-fueled “Hold On,” - which broke into the Top 10 Beatport House charts - Cornett has only continued to push his creative limits and receive praise across BBC Radio 1 titans Pete Tong, Annie Mac and Danny Howard. As impressive as his original works may be, one can’t discuss the producer’s body of work without mentioning the Amtrac remix, a coveted commodity in today’s music business. Sigur Ros, Duke Dumont, Alex Metric, Two Door Cinema Club and more have all requested the Amtrac treatment, and each time the producer has delivered and then some.

With a resume carrying the names of noted tastemaker labels including Toolroom and Kitsuné, his most recent EPs have come through Kidnap Kid’s Birds That Fly imprint and Waze & Odyssey’s Street Tracks, noting another step in his sonic evolution. His ambition and curiosity keep him locked on the edge, always happy to experiment with new techniques and sounds. His music is what he feels in the moment. Simply put, his constant evolution comes from a hatred of boredom and a love for his labo

Walker & Royce

Walker & Royce have been producing their emotive, subdued and groove-heavy deep house since 2011— but almost from the start, they were touted as future stars. Now it’s official, thanks to a certain UK tastemaker— not to mention a string of stellar productions and remixes." - XLR8R
 "Walker & Royce" started when Sam and Gavin, having known each other in and out of the dance scene for years, finally began working together in 2011. As things usually go, it was a bit of luck that got them off the ground: Crosstown Rebels boss Damian Lazarus noticed one of their very first releases, a remix of SAARID's "Future Lately", on Nervous Records. The result was the Crosstown Rebels EP "You're Not Welcome" and with that, Walker & Royce was launched into the dance music spotlight.
 Around the same time, Walker & Royce released a track on OFF Recordings that went on to become a house anthem: "Connected". The song became a mainstay in Solomun's performances and with that set the stage for a diverse range of sounds from the pair. Their EP on Moda Black entitled “Sister” was picked by Pete Tong as his Essential New Tune, and their chart toping remix of Baunz’ “Out the Window” on Pets Recordings garnered support from many of the biggest artists in electronic music.  The duo has joined the ranks on Claude Vonstroke’s seminal Dirtybird Records with the release of the “Boy” EP and “Hit Dem Draws” and Green Velvet’s legendary Relief Records with their chart toping release “Peep This Cat”, and “3 4 Shake It” with fellow Dirtybird artist Will Clarke.
 2017 saw the duo release their debut artist album entitled “Self Help” on Dirtybird Records. The release invites listeners on an out-there trip through the quirks and quips of an act on the tip of modern house music’s tongue. The result is a journey whose stops are as fit for introspection as it is for peak club moments.  “Self Help” puts forth a critically acclaimed and career-defining debut album - an immensely clever project that lures listeners in with club-ready grooves only to leave them in contemplation.
Having solidified their unique sound, you will hear Walker & Royce's music in many of the top DJ's from around the world! From Sasha to Adam Beyer, Maceo Plex to Gorgon City and Eats Everything to Loco Dice, they continue to break down the genre barriers and turn heads....
