Initially establishing himself in San Diego and producing tracks for labels in Spain like Open Legs and Music Mates; Dink garnished a reputation for producing cutting edge tracks with a distinctive sound, riding the line between tech-house and electro with Detroits very own Detox Recordings. Now back in his hometown of Detroit he is part of NightSneak and has played numerous shows sharing the stage with artists like Bart B More, DJ Craze, Lazy Rich & Justin Martin. His production continues to evolve and amaze those who are privy to this young underground talent. With multiple upcoming releases be sure to keep an eye out for all the latest original and remix material. ---------------------------------------------------- GUSTO Nightsneak / Detroit, MI Techno Live PA Augustus Williams, aka DJ Gusto, may not have had the most ideal childhood, but his story is a positive one with a promising future. Gusto has memories of his father listening to Marvin Gaye and old Motown records, but the music that spoke to him first was Hip Hop. By Junior High Gusto was spending much of his time listening to the radio, and taping shows of WJLB, this is where he first learned of artists like DJ Godfather, and DJ Assault. When he attended his first party in 1996 he did not yet know what Techno was, but validates that this was the event that would evidently shape the rest of his life. From that point on Gusto’s interest in music grew into a passion, and that passion drove him to become a part of the music. He began DJing, focusing on electronic music evolving from his first love of Hip Hop, Electro, and Drum N’ Bass. At the age of 19 Gusto learned about “The Belleville Three” and found him self completely drawn to Techno. He started to play frequently at house parties, and at one of these parties he met a fellow DJ, Jesse James, and the two of them soon became close friends. This meeting and newly established friendship would provide Gusto with an opportunity to shine in his future, Jesse James and cousin James Woods would later become responsible for the “Nightsneak” parties, and Gusto soon became a local favorite. Since then he has had the opportunity to perform alongside artists such as; James Pennington, Mike Dearborn, Terrence Parker, Green Velvet, Frankie Bones and DJ Assault. After years of spinning records Gusto began to direct his energy through drum machines and sequencers, often combining those efforts for a no less than impressive show. Playing mostly live shows for the better part of the last 7 years, people often forget he started out as a DJ. In the studio his tracks are made with the DJ and the dance floor in mind, and he spends much of his time developing his own style. Years of determination posed yet another opportunity for him when Twonz the owner of Hijacked Records asked him to join the family. The rest is not history, but the future. ---------------------------------------------------- MEIOSIS Cincinnati, OH Bass Music Live PA Meiosis [my∙oh∙sis] is Cole Brokamp and David Sweitzer. Original productions stylized with live keys and samples make for a unique performance, giving the duo the chance to showcase their production prowess while focusing on bass-centric and emotion-filled electronic music. ---------------------------------------------------- BASSFACE Homeless / Cincinnati, OH Bass Music Bassface started off kicking and punching his way through the Lower West Side of Cincinnati until he developed his muse, his car, and his tables. More recently he has been making a name for himself in Mexico getting in boat fights and blasting beats fighting his way to the top. After moving back to the states he has started Homeless Productions and has started the Flash Rage phenomenon, and thats something that is taking over. For those who have not witnessed him in action you are in for a treat. He drops anything that has heady basslines that leave you thirsty for more. For all the TRAP lovers out there he has started a side project duo "GRAMSTARZ" with DJ/Producer Obe-1. As for the rest, well, you can come witness that for yourself. ---------------------------------------------------- JON HUENI Bluetronik/ LA Trance Movement/ Bloomington, IN Progressive This fresh face in the Cincinnati dance music scene has already been carving a fan base in the Tri-state with his positive, uplifting spirit and top notch DJing. After taking his hometown of Bloomington by storm (he's somewhat of a celebrity), Jon began releasing material with Bluetronik and DJing guest spots on the LA Trance Movement podcasts. Since then, Jon has taken his ingenuity to the road and fanned out in the Midwest. His original mashups accentuate his already rock solid track selection, putting an intimate touch to the tunes we already know with those we don't.
