Who is behind it? Where did the last two hours of my life go? These aren’t questions that we can answer for you.

Adventure Club is a Dubstep Duo hailing from Montreal.
Formed in early 2011, Adventure Club is a Production ouftit / DJ duo formed by local musicians Christian Srigley & Leighton James.
After a blitz in the studio, they’ve released 5 tracks with an Upcoming EP to hit the scene shortly. With remixes ranging from 1950′s classics, post-hardcore rock to the sweet electronic sounds of today.
MitiS, brought up a Classical pianist in Pennsylvania, has been making his way into the Electronic music scene for the past two years and has been producing tracks from genres Dubstep to Electro.
“I just wanna share good music, have it be through performance or a small, simple social setting. Music is what I do, I wouldn’t change that for anything. Have it be a Chopin piece playing in a hall, or a dirty bass kickin’ the club’s ass, I’m down for either…”
After experiencing the classical world of piano playing in renowned Halls such as Carnegie Hall in Manhattan NY, and the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, Joe Torre became MitiS to give the Dance music scene a run for it’s money. “I find myself unable to stop making phat basses, heavy beats, and throwing melodies into the mix… I Can’t think of anything else more appetizing; It’s the new age Classical.
MitiS has come a long way in a little time, being flown out by Into the AM to open for artists like AOKI, Dillion Francis, & Dirtyphonics. And has Been receiving support from artists like Figure, Designer Drugs, Urban Assault and his Heavy Artillery Fam.
Below an iconic logo on a bright red Abstract Impressionist sleeve, TNGHT are described as “Hudson Mohawke X Lunice”. The multiply sign is intended. This is not the sound of two producers bouncing off each other. This is the sound of 2 of the very best new producers in the industry amplifying each other.
Hudson Mohawke and Lunice were already some of the hottest names in new electronic music and hip hop. With a string of independent releases for Lunice, and a world’s worth of touring – he met Warp Records rising star, Hudson Mohawke, back on early club touring in 2008. Now, pooling their talents as TNGHT, they are helping to redefine the state of new pop, dance music and hip hop in a wholly fresh fusion; born of this A.D.D generation looking towards the internet but equally born of vinyl culture, sample chopping and digging.
Flashback to mid 2011. Locked down in a small basement studio underneath Soho, London, the duo sank a bottle of cheap whisky and produced some of the most exciting, unashamedly bombastic club music of the year. The 5 track debut came together in a matter of nights – finding its home in a suitably collaborative fashion between Warp & LuckyMe Records.
The project debuted with a small show at SXSW 2012, their thundering productions inadvertently shattering a huge glass wall and causing an explosion of glowing press from Pitchfork to MTV to Rap Radar. The hype took hold in the few months lead-in to the July release, culminating in a packed out debut London show, complete with security desperately defending the booth from armies of riotous stage invaders. In the 6 months following the debut show, their live shows transitioned from 250 capacity club events to headlining major festival stages.
Promo videos made from footage of the launch night, cut with atmospheric New York shots, took the group and their stage production into a sort of mythic YouTube status, clocking in well over 2 Million combined views across the 5 short ep tracks, with TNGHT’s ‘Higher Ground’ now having more views than Stevie Wonders anthem of the same name.
Come release date, the 5 track instrumental rap EP had even dipped its toes into the US Billboard chart, the tracks made surprise appearances in Kanye West’s Paris fashion show, MTV’s VMA Awards ceremony and the duo were approached to provide the official remix to Waka Flocka’s single Rooster in my Rari.
They were featured in print from Dazed to Interview to The Guardian to Vice to Notion – and many more in between. DJ support flooded in from across the spectrum, from Kanye West to Calvin Harris, the indie / dance transcendent Thom Yorke to techno god Richie Hawtin.
It’s undeniable. TNGHT have emerged to take the helm of hip hop & pop music. And with a depth and all together fresher frame of reference and an air of boundless ambition, who knows where this could end up.

Christopher Mercer, aka Rusko was born in Leeds in 1985 to a musical family. From day one Rusko was surrounded by music whether it be his families piano’s, guitars, banjo’s and saxophones…or in his later years the heavy reggae and dub sound systems of Leeds, music has always been an integral part of Rusko’s life.
After graduating from Leeds university with a degree in musical performance, Rusko discovered the world of dubstep through SUB DUB and a debut appearance from the “Digital Mystikz”, having spent the past 10 years making future dub alongside Leeds very own Iration Steppas, Rusko connected with the sound and moved down to London to further advance his musical opportunities.
Veering away from the dark, serious side of the sound Rusko bought a highly driven energy and fun approach to the dubstep massive, quickly coining his own take on the genre that infected . His sound appealed to many people outside of the dubstep world as his productions became more adventurous in formula, sound and energy. His huge hit “Cockney Thug” has been played by everyone from Pete Tong, Switch, Diplo and Santogold. And has been remixed by Buraka Som sistema, Diplo, Drop the Lime and the Scratch Perverts.
Now part of the Mad Decent Camp with collaborations on the horizon with the likes of Switch, Diplo , Santigold, Trouble Andrew, Hot Chip and more…the future sure is looking bright. Currently setting the radio airwaves alight with his own productions and remixes of artists such as The Prodigy, Basement Jaxx, Little Boots and plenty more, Rusko is only going in one direction. Onwards, upwards and far beyond any other young producer could dream of.
Philly based EDM producer Jasha Tull has created an ever expanding and mind melting experience as Space Jesus. Exploring a multitude of EDM stylings and effectively branding each track with his own bass fueled, psychedelic, Hip-Hop flavor, Space Jesus delivers music that is undeniably fresh and consistently captivating. Jasha began producing music at age 16 with an initial focus on Hip-Hop, that eventually led to his fascination with the production of future-bass music. In 2011, Jasha released SPACE JESUS EP, which immediately brought him an incredible amount of followers throughout the East Coast. Quickly gaining recognition for his individuality, creativity, and high-energy live show, Space Jesus has been popping up all over the states, sharing the stage with incredible acts such as Conspirator, Two Fresh, Minnesota, The Polish Ambassador and Bluetech. Space Jesus has instantly become a mainstay of the electronic music festival scene, with appearances at The Magnetic Gathering and The Big Up in 2011. Hustlin’ hard into the new year, Space Jesus shown no signs of slowing down. Keep your eyes peeled, or keep ‘em shut, either way you’re bound to see Space Jesus tear a wormhole right through the 2012 festival season.
