Keys N Krates
Keys N Krates
Keys N Krates formed in 2008 out of a desire to do something different. They wanted to take the remix/electronic sound out of the studio and onto the stage, creating a new live electronica experience. The Toronto-based trio – comprised of the high-energy Adam Tune on drums, synth-master David Matisse on keys, and internationally award-winning Jr. Flo on turntables – began by locking themselves in a rehearsal room for six months to create and finesse their unique sound and identity.
The result? A blend of hip hop, electronica, and jam that truly shows off the artistry of the live remix. Keys N Krates collage raw samples and twist them with live instrumentation, creating a unique party sound. With two live off-the-floor mixtapes under their belt, the outfit is set to release their first EP, The Blackout. The multi-genre EP blends clever sample collaging, epic synths, big bass, and funky drum grooves into a sonically unified collection of songs.

KNK has been featured in such publications as URB, Fader, and Antenna magazine. They have toured with and played alongside artists including Pretty Lights, Lotus, Skrillex, Girl Talk, Kid Cudi, Metric, Timbaland, Zed's Dead and more. In 2011, the band broke out on the festival scene, playing Camp Bisco, Electric Forest, North Coast, Moe's Summer Camp, Re-Generation and Blues Fest. After producing distinctive remixes of songs by artists such as MGMT, Jay Z, Michael Jackson, Drake, and Florence + The Machine, Keys N Krates were commissioned to create official remixes for Lotus, Lyrics Born, and OK GO.

To really grasp what Tune, Matisse, and Jr. Flo bring to the stage, you have to see it up close. Their shows are filled with high-energy sets that are made to be witnessed live. The guys continue to craft and grow their sound and style, exposing audiences worldwide to the Keys N Krates experience.
Bass Control
When Bass Control steps up to the decks, feet start moving as clubbers head straight to the dancefloor. Bass Control, aka Dennis Sebayan, has 15 years of experience DJing at hundreds of music festivals, concerts, small-to-large clubs, lounges, fashion shows, fundraisers, competitions and other special events. He spins at top clubs regularly in his hometown of NYC and has performed in Toronto, Miami, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Las Vegas and Buffalo. Since he started DJing in 1997, Bass Control has seen electronic dance music (EDM) evolve, along with its various twists, turns and mutations. This is reflected in his current style that combines house, techno, progressive, electro and breakbeats, with some game-changing surprises in between. Media outlets continually seek out his expertise in EDM, as he has been featured in URB, Next, Time Out New York, Cityscoops NY, and Big Shot. In 2010, Bass Control was featured on as one of the top resident DJs in NYC for his technical precision and top-tiered music selection. Presently, Bass Control is a co-producer of UMF Radio Presented by Ultra Music Festival, which airs on Sirius XM Radio’s Electric AREA Channel. Since 2004, he has been an integral part of Ultra Music Festival’s marketing team. For this seasoned jock, it’s all about connecting with the crowd and bringing them to a whole other level.
JimHensonInTheViceGrip are a hip-hop duo making some extremely unglued hip-hop. To date, the pair have released the Yokayseeya & Vice Grip EPs followed up with this year's full-length Corbin Dallas LP, presenting what critics call "a reclusive blend of codeine-muddled production and split personality rap bravado".
