    KASTLE
    Kastle’s forward-thinking music results from his long-time love of hip-hop and R&B, fused with the magnetizing effect that dubstep, garage and bass-heavy music has had on him. Last year, his track “Stay Forever” from the eponymous EP reached the iTunes Top 10 Best Electronic Songs of 2012, and he embarked on his highly successful ‘Stay Forever’ tour across North America, and into Australia and New Zealand. Kastle has garnished strong media attention from the likes of XLR8R, URB, MTV Hive and Fact Magazine along with plays on BBC Radio 1 and KCRW. His highly anticipated debut album KASTLE drops on April 23rd, followed by his first North America live tour.

    The studio and touring dichotomy of an artist's life is a perfect yin & yang for Kastle in both his production and outlook. His professional experience as an engineer puts forth clean, crisp production, but his love for the party provides a playful bass that eats a room. Altogether, the wide varieties of vocals - both originals and sampled - are a key element to Kastle's sound. "I grew up on hip hop and R&B, and sampling is considered an art form," he says. "It's becoming more and more fun to dig through old records and find obscure samples." He cites another unexpected influence -legendary French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard, who had once said that "it's not where you take things from, it's where you take them to."


    “Kastle pushes the kind of soulful, low-end-centered, forward-thinking dubstep tunes that could just as easily soundtrack a night out at the club as they could the lonely walk home afterwards.” – XLR8R

    "Kastle hails from the US, and has been keeping us up to date with his various remixes and original productions for a little while now. One of our favourites is his remix of Cassie’s ‘Me & U’, where one of the best R’n’B songs of recent years gets warped into a bass-drenched cyber-pop epic reminiscent of early Joker and Bok Bok’s ‘Youth Blood’ remix." - FACT Magazine

    “The field recording of a playground that starts off “You Got the Love” fits the theme of Inner Child, a compilation whose proceeds go to benefit Atlanta’s Dream House for Kids, from which the track is taken, but is a bit less instep with the song itself. Kastle’s soulful number is equal parts mysterious, Burial-esque dubstep and classic piano house, but not the least bit childish or playful in any way. Both the poignant vocal melody and solid production work are trademarks of an artist that takes his work seriously. Regardless, the thoughtful, grooving sounds heard within “Love” are sure to stand out amongst the other contributed tracks on the philanthropic release.” – XLR8R

    “…saunters along a crush-worthy progression and R&B perfection. It’s dubby and dancey and totally party, afterparty, after-afterparty appropriate.” – Culture Of Me

    “Kastle looks poised to make his mark in the burgeoning North America scene and hold his own with any UK producers who claim rights to the future sound of garage music. “ – So Sincerious

    “With a tracklisting which boasts taste, sufficient amounts of bass and interesting drum patterns – Kastle has set himself up perfectly for a big year in 2010. Not forgetting to mention, the productions are top notch.” – Hush House

    “…a bassy trip to Sexytown. This is bass your whole family will love. There are plenty of remixes to which one could easily get their swerve on. From slow dubby beats to sped up amens, it’s all slathered in deep, sexy bass and mixed with precision. Packed with swagger, this mix is sure to be in heavy rotation for some time to come.” – Truculence

    TRIPPY TURTLE +
    MOVING CASTLE CREW
    Trippy was born on a cold beach somewhere in northern europe. From an early age he was exposed to beautiful skinnydipping scandinavian women and rnb-music on wack boomblasters, influences you can still hear in his music today. And the charming young tortoise quickly became a true ladies turtle.

    One warm summer night in the middle of mating season, Trippy was caught in a fishing net and came aboard a fishing boat from Jersey. Talking his way out of becoming a part of today’s stew, he became friends with the crazy chef Molly which fed him with all sorts of crazy things for her entertainment. It is widely believed that this caused the trippyness of young Trippy.

    After many weeks, the fishing boat arrived in Jersey and our hero started his long journey to the other side of the street. On his journey he met many other cool party-animals and together they formed the infamous gang “FoFoFadi Foodchain”. Rumors are that our trippy turtle had terrible pronunciation and the gang was originally called “No More Sardines”.

    One day it all changed… Trippy got into a fight with Disco Duck and Disco tossed him into a wall. The sounds the shell made shocked the whole crew. Turtle immediately called his mother and she confessed his long lost father Roland was indeed… an 808. With his new found roots, Trippy told his friends and family that he wanted to do music. And so he did.

    The gang scraped together all the sardines they could get their hands on and traded them for an old squeeky macbook. They now take turns throwing Trippy at the macbook and record the outcome.

    Alex Vlastaras, aka Aero Chord, is a 23 year old Grecian future trap producer that is breaking ground no one even knew existed. His innovative sound design is coupled by aggressive, dance-ready arrangements unparalleled in the world of future bass.

    Aero Chord’s resume is just as impressive as his support list. With an official remix for the hit “Burnin’ Up” from Jessie J & 2 Chainz as well as the Beatport chart-buster “Surface” which held down the number one spot in hip-hop for well over a month, Alex is just getting started.

    He’s garnered support from the likes of the biggest taste-makers in the industry: Skrillex, Diplo, Tiesto, Flux Pavilion, & more.

    Aero Chord has also become one of the more notable names on Monstercat; helping the label continue to rise up as one of the most innovative in the game.

    The rapidly growing #AeroSquad has launched Alex’s presence not only in the music industry, but across the board on social media. Touting impressive numbers of over 20 million combined hits on YouTube, 4 million on Spotify, and more then 4 million on Soundcloud, the people have spoken.

    A-TRAK
    At a time when the DJ sits firmly at the center of popular culture, A-Trak stands out as MVP, the key participant who holds together all facets of the craft. Very few share his mastery of turntablism while also sitting at the forefront of musical innovation, looking keenly to the future with history tucked in his back pocket. A true connector, Trizzy hops effortlessly from colossal festival stages to sold-out concert venues and sweaty underground clubs, building links between hip hop and electronic music while watching genre barriers crumble.

    After spending years as Kanye West’s tour DJ and consigliere, he founded the celebrated record label Fool’s Gold in 2007 and developed the careers of artists such as Kid Cudi, Danny Brown and Flosstradamus. With its string of releases and parties, Fool’s Gold broke down bygone rules of the record industry, paving the way for a new wave of independents and helping to make North American electro a dominating force. As a Grammy-nominated producer, A-Trak’s seminal mix of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Heads Will Roll” marked an entire generation’s introduction to dance music. Duck Sauce, his irreverent collaboration with Armand Van Helden, flipped the bird to chart-topping formulas and reached #1 in 12 countries with the ubiquitous “Barbra Streisand”, electronic music’s first true viral music video. A-Trak easily segues from working with EDM’s elite to revitalizing rap superheroes, launching Federal Reserve with Cam’ron and Low Pros with Lex Luger. He casually picked up 3 VMA nominations along the way.

    Not bad for a kid from Montreal who was once known as a 90’s turntable prodigy. As a teenager, he brought home every DJ title known to man, starting with the 1997 DMC World Championships and holding a record-breaking 5 titles by the time he was 18. Meanwhile, as his older brother Dave morphed into the lead-singing lothario in the acclaimed electro-pop sensation Chromeo, Alain grew from a nerdy teen who created an elaborate scratch notation system to a bona fide style icon and one of the most recognizable figures in the DJ scene. He recently appeared in campaigns for Adidas, Grey Goose and Cadillac and graced the covers of Billboard and Complex. Based in New York for close to 10 years now, A-Trak’s interest in the lifestyle of his generation has certainly made its mark. As one of the first blogging DJs, he now regularly contributes to the Huffington Post and owns the travel website Infinite Legroom. Through Fool’s Gold, he cemented his reputation as a cultural curator: the label’s legendary events – most notably the Day Off series – are like a knighting ceremony for new talent; FG has its own clothing line and a Brooklyn storefront which doubles as an art gallery. It’s the accumulation of these projects that defines who A-Trak is. With this sort of breadth to his resumé, it’s no surprise that Rolling Stone named him one of the 50 Most Important People in EDM. Currently focusing on more solo recordings, the ever-young Trizzy continues to write new chapters in his storied career.
