Ape Drums’ signature dancehall rhythms mixed with big room sounds have already garnered support from some of the world’s top DJs & musicians including Major Lazer, Skrillex, Sean Paul and DJ Snake. His debut single “Bashment” was released in 2014 and set the dance world on fire with its addictive rhythms, setting the course for Ape Drums’ future – bringing his unique blend of electronic and dancehall to the masses. 2015 brought more notoriety to the Young Drumma with an extensive touring schedule in the States and Ape’s first tour of Australia. With dancehall and electronic music creeping further towards the mainstream, and a huge 2016 on the horizon with releases on Mad Decent, Fools Gold, and Interscope, as well as, collaborations with Major Lazer, Spike Jonze, Pitbull & Lil Uzi Vert there’s no telling what heights Ape will reach next.
If you are looking for sexually-charged, sensual production, Promnite is the man for you. Athletixx member Promnite has earned a reputation for remixing today’s popular hip-hop songs into danceable, heavy trap tunes. Promnite’s recent remix of “Nothing But Space” by Keys N Krates has been steadily climbing charts and making it’s way into DJ sets across the nation. On Valentine’s Day he released his first mixtape, ‘Love Songs For What?’, where he combined mellow electronic to 90’s R&B flips to futuristic ghetto-house all under one roof. But Promnite doesn’t only work with nostalgic records, he has also produced super-tight remixes for popular rappers such as Schoolboy Q, Future, Denzel Curry and T-Pain. With intriguing collabs with Alizzz and Mr Carmack, Promnite is taking over the game.
The Wild Boyz! project was born in 2012, when Bay Area producer/DJs Kean B and Jared F teamed up to produce their own unique brand of electro house. Borrowing from their diverse musical backgrounds and eclectic influences, the duo set out to create a sound that was reminiscent of rock and roll, yet perfectly suited for dance music’s main stage. Wild Boyz! garnered industry-wide attention for dynamic live sets and genre-defying remixes and original productions, including a Hype Machine #1.
Coming up in New York City ‘not sorry’ has been raised with a love and deep understanding of music. First cutting his teeth on Platinum and Grammy winning records at Chung King Studios with artists such as Depeche Mode, Kanye West, Rihanna, Snoop Dogg, LL Cool J, TI and Usher. Combining his intricate understanding of audio engineering and sound design to create a unique style in today’s bass music scene, ‘not sorry’ has caught the ears and support of Jauz, Pegboard Nerds, Skrillex, Nghtmre, Seven Lions, Downlink, Krewella, Party Favor and more! With releases on Mad Decent, Good Enuff, Play Me and Monstercat, be sure to expect big things from this producer and expect an amazing b2b set with WIld Boyz.
With Nala on call for support, expect to come out to Control and get a start to your weekend by grooving with Ape Drums, Promnite, Wild Boyz, Not Sorry, and Nala. It will most definitely be a feel-good Friday.
