Mixhell is a new and exciting collaboration which aims to fuse together the best and most uplifting elements of the rock and electronica scenes to create a "Rock-tronica" effect. After working alongside some of the greats including Necro, Ice T, Zegon, Sabotage and LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy; the overwhelming presence of an organic, intuitive and complimentary musical sound, often associated with the electronic music language, was hard to ignore, and became the driving force behind the project. With this in mind, Iggor and wife Laima have moved the project from its creative home in the studio to the stage where it has become a DJ project with an extraordinary Live element. Iggor and Laima have now incorporated an MPC Sampler into their DJ Sets, which allows them to fully explore the inner depth of their music whilst delving into the depths of Electroclash, Hip Hop, Cyber Punk and dark Rock ’n' Roll and unleashing it on an underground dance community. The music they are creating on the fly is very beat oriented and gives the feeling, almost, of having a pulse. This is clearly Iggor's effect coming from a dominating percussive background.

In only a few years, producer/emcee Black Milk has quickly developed into one of the few hip hop artists who both carries an accomplished resume and is followed with widely-held optimism about what he can bring as one of the leaders of the modern hip hop movement. Now 25 years old, Black (born Curtis Cross) earned his stripes both locally in his native Detroit and on a national level from his associations with Slum Village. After getting his first production credit for "What is This" on SV's sophomore album "Trinity" in 2002, he produced much of the popular group's next two albums both individually and as part of the production team BR Gunna, with whom he also released the album "Dirty District, Vol. 2." It wasn't until his self-released debut solo album "Sound of the City" in 2005 did he begin to achieve some notoriety as an emcee, and it was off the strength of the album that he signed his first record deal with Fat Beats Records in 2006.

The mysterious duo from the northern land of Canada started a fire burning with the brazen Hungry For The Power, a single released last fall that is continually blowing up with fans ranging from Annie Mac to Grizzly Bear, Boys Noize to Broken Social Scene. The follow up smash, Reckless (With Your Love), is currently serving up a dose of techno soul so addictively repeatable, you gotta be cautious or you'll get hooked.With remixes for and by the likes of Health, Munk, Le Le, Bot'ox, Ali Love, Sidwo? Nacho Lovers, Mano Le Tough, Runaway, Cosmo Vitelli and Mathias Aguayo, lemme catch my breathŠits only been 8 months but this outfit is outputting like a sweatshop in July! With 'Hungry For The Power' (released on Cosmo Vitelli's label, I'm A Cliche) and 'Reckless' (Permanent Vacation), Azari & III have started a journey based on emotions, not genres. Azari & III: a project borne out of the endless nights of reckless abandon, a psychotropic sunset or the grayest shade of come down.

Lunice seems to churn out remixes in his sleep and big beats overnight. Good thing, because 2009 just might be Mr. Fermin Pierre II's time. The 20-year-old Montrealer linked up with Megasoid (Rob "Speakerbruiser" Squire and Hadji "Wolf Parade" Bakara) last year after his very first public gig. He's since been a part of their Turbo Crunk crew, bring his own special blend of bittersweet bass-driven goodness. Whether one calls what Lunice is doing Lazer Bass, Wonky or Street Bass, it's all about what will make folks dance. To be expected, given that he's a competent (and formerly competitive) breakdancer with his own particular style. "Janes Addiction" finds him in a more glitchy mood alongside Baltimore's Al Ripken, Jr.

Ango { 2 years ago I was going to quit playing music.  I was living in Halifax, making beats and I had just finished doing 6 tours across Canada with 3 different bands.  I was heavily in debt with basically no job, living in a basement with my girlfriend.  I was about to head out on my first solo tour, as ANGO, with no idea how I was going to pull it off, but I had a commitment to a lot of friends in different cities so I sucked it up.  The first show on the tour was Turbo Crunk in Montreal. Musically, I had never been a part of anything like it.  Montreal was growing something special.  3 months later I moved here.  I love this cityŠfor me it's just the perfect place to be creative it inspires me to keep making work, especially when the weather is crappy.  I spend my time working freelance in the tiny anglophone film/tv industry and figuring out how to do this electronic music thing live.  I've customized the way my hardware works with certain software, I built a MIDI controlled lighting rig, and I made a few albums worth of material.

"There will be an evolution in what I do all the time." -Felix Cartal
Felix Cartal may be one of the most innovative DJs to enter the scene; at only twenty-one years old his mark on dance music is already impacting young(er) producers, before leading his own tour. In a world of heavy, hard-hitting bangers, Cartal is developing music of this genre into a more complex and theoretical form, revolutionizing the way dance music is created, "Felix Cartal is part of a new breed of young producers taking elements of his contemporaries and making a massive sound in his production," Steve Aoki, Founder of Dim Mak Records. Knocking down boundaries of expectations and changing perspectives, Felix stands alone in his uniqueness of producing dance tracks; never steering from the melody, he lays certain elements from modern productions, adds meticulously chosen tracks combed together to develop explosive versatile music

With the tons of hyped up (but utterly mediocre) dance music that comes out these days, it's pretty hard to stand apart from the herd; not the case with Toronto's Egyptrixx. In just over one year, his distinct sonic aesthetic has become an acclaimed presence in underground music, garnering praise from heavyweight DJ's, including Sinden, Mary Ann Hobbs and Drop the Lime, and influential publications such as Fader, Xlr8r and The Wire magazine. All of his recent records have also seen regular radio play on BBC Radio 1 and Kiss FM among others. His unique and energetic live sets are in-demand, with headlining gigs banked all over Europe and North America and a busy touring schedule in upcoming months. He makes celestial club music; jeep music for a Saturn desert. There is an exhilarating right-but-wrong tension that all of Egyptrixx' tracks share - a shifting balance between melodic and dissonant, rapturous and antisocial. His releases continue to challenge the status quo and impress with a unique style informed by elements of techno, house, dubstep and pop music. With critically acclaimed releases already out on Night Slugs and Ramp Recordings, and his forthcoming debut LP slated for an early 2011 release, the future looks bright for Egyptrixx.

Megasoid started in the winter of 2006/2007 as a Montreal-based mobile sound-system making aggressive street-bass-remix music. For the following 3 years they spent their time playing their music out of vans, throwing amps in basements for live sets, lugging modular synths to rooftops and setting up big PAs under bridges and at after-hours spots, over time transforming the format of the group from a 2-man Live P.A. setup to a long-distance writing partnership, presented as a 1-man mobile A.V. setup. Moving from street/loft parties where they created thier signature sound to large capacity clubs (which they've occasionally been known to get kicked out of), Megasoid's 'Turbo Crunk' parties in Toronto and Montreal have gained momentum and become one of the most notorious franchises in North America. Megasoid recently re-located to the west coast and is looking for a monthly spot to throw serious parties in Vancouver. Megasoid is part of the arts/culture/design/creative outlet known as Weaponshouse. We are currently located in Vancouver, Canada. To book Megasoid as a Live A/V set for Summer/Fall 2010, give us a shout.

Vancouver-based veteran skateboarder Michael Campitelli came to dub the way most skate kids would, through the Bad Brains. The sometimes hardcore, sometimes reggae group's dub tracks led Campitelli to the Jamaican dub of King Tubby, Linton Kwesi Johnson, Scientist, and Lee "Scratch" Perry. Already a fan of hip-hop, Campitelli saw the relationship between rap and dub. Both were electronic and studio-based music and both were to play a role in influencing his own dub outfit, Calamalka. Taking a break from his drumming and bass playing in the Vancouver bands Kinnie Starr, Lux, and Nefro, Campitelli worked on his own and released the Calamalka EP in 2000. Good reviews and positive feedback from like-minded producers lead to a dialog with the Plug Research label, who expressed interest in adding Calamalka to their roster. Work on the album was underway when Campitelli was contacted by director Nathaniel Geary, who was looking for a soundtrack to his film On the Corner. Campitelli finished the soundtrack, finished his album, and released Shredders Dub in September of 2004.
