DJ Earl entered the musical world in 2005 by means of dance battles. He participates in local parties in rollerskating rinks, building up his unfailing knowledge of this culture.
In 2017, God Colony and Flohio are taking their friendship and artistic collaborations out of the studio and into the club. Having worked together on Steady, SE16 and My World, the trio are hitting this year with loads of new tracks, visuals and a 60-minute soundsystem set comprised of unreleased material and fresh club edits.
Just out of high school, Chicago rapper Killavesi has already released a handful of quality tracks on Soundcloud, weaving her jaunty flow through an array of glittery, luxurious beats produced by the likes of H!tkidd, Mechatok, and hi tom. Partner to Adamn Killa, Killavesi produces Kiddie trap and ominous love songs.
Uli K is a London-based singer, producer and member of the collective of artists called Bala Club.
