The Dirty Heads
The Dirty Heads is a reggae band from Huntington Beach, CA with a melodic style that includes hip hop and ska punk genres. The band was founded in 1996 by Jared “Dirty J” Watson and vocalist/guitarist Dustin “Duddy B” Bushnell in Orange County, CA. The two first met at a party during their freshman year of high school.
Sitting at the forefront of the melodic dubstep and bass music movement, ILLENIUM has quickly become one of Denver’s most talked about EDM producers and DJs. San Francisco native Nicholas Miller, better known as ILLENIUM, moved to Denver in 2013 and is now proud to call Colorado home. Incorporating influences from artists like Seven Lions, Zeds Dead, & Sound Remedy, ILLENIUM creates his own blend of melodic dubstep with his asteroid like bass and catchy melody lines. While some people say that dubstep is a dying breed, ILLENIUM reinvents the style with a much more epic melodic sounding approach. ILLENIUM began making electronic dance music in early 2008 and was immediately recognized for his production quality and content.

ILLENIUM’s latest EP titled, RISEN exemplifies just that. Miller teamed up with the internationally acclaimed Sirma for one of the songs on this EP, after hearing DropTalk’s remix of Wanderer and together they created the melodically beautiful track, Drop Our Hearts. This song was the first single from RISEN, premiering on Tuesday December 10th. Drop Our Hearts immediately rose to the #1 position on the EDM Network’s

ILLENIUM got his start on the scene when he released his 2013 debut self-titled EP with LA based record label, Prep School Recordings. Adding his own blend of intricate melodies and powerful bass heavy rhythms into electronic dance music fuels his sound, and puts him at the forefront of the melodic dubstep and bass music scene that so many people consider the future of electronic dance music. ILLENIUM states that, “We are in the midst of a digital revolution and along with this revolution comes the freedom of music.” ILLENIUM is a freedom of music pioneer and gives all of his music away for free to his fans.
DJ and producer, born January 9, 1991, Syosset, New York, United States. Better known by his stage name 3LAU (pronounced "Blau"), is an American progressive house and electro house producer and Ableton performer.
Young, talented and ambitious define HIRIE as an individual and as an artist. Stirring up island-inspired vibes with sounds of roots, reggae and pop while also applying her smooth, sweet and naturally pop-sounding voice to blend it all together. HIRIE will undoubtedly be a driving force in new-age music.
Born in the Philippines, raised in Italy and living the biggest and most influential portion of her life in Hawaii, HIRIE considers herself an island girl at heart. The experiences she's had living on Oahu have taken her on a musical journey worth listening to by all who appreciate her genuine take on love and life.
2013 is the year HIRIE enters the music industry. With sheer determination she aims to deliver music that entertains both reggae and pop lovers alike. Charm, passion for people, positive and uplifting messages, and memorable hooks and melodies are offered for all in her upcoming, self-titled album: HIRIE.
"HIRIE is a lifestyle I want people to love and become accustomed to. The island-way of living is contagious; healing the mind, body and spirit. The same goes for its music. When people hear my songs, I want them to feel disconnected from their troubles. Music that brings you to a positive place: that's reggae. Music that lifts you to higher space: that's HIRIE".
Coming out of Orange County, California, Seedless has built their fan base by playing live shows relentlessly to spread their music. After releasing their first album in 2010, "Twisted Roots", Seedless toured nationally year after year with acts like Soja, The Expendables, Stick Figure and Tribal Seeds. Bringing an energetic performance and soul-filled sound, Seedless, led by vocalist Matthew Liufau, has gained a loyal fan base across the country.

The group continued to produce music with Lewis Richards at 17th Street Studios for several years. Carefully choosing what to release, singles like, "Baby Don't Go", "Bullet", and "Friends" gave fans a glimpse into the direction of the band, and what they might expect from their much anticipated sophomore release, "The Orange Album."
In early 2016, two members left the band, Casey Sullivan (vocals/guitar) and Grant Rivera (bass).  Each with a business and family of their own, Casey and Grant wished the band the best as they chose to stop playing.

The other members of Seedless, Matthew Liufau (vocals), Shay Pino (drums), Joe Bakhos (guitar) and Anthony Wells (keyboards) kept touring. They picked up hired musicians, J-Bird (bass) and Jason J (guitar/harmonies) to help fill out the live sound. Matt’s sister, Essel, has also been added to the lineup, bringing her dynamic presence and skillfully trained vocals.

Between playing shows with Iration, The Expendables and many more, Seedless finished their long awaited Orange Album, announcing it's release date: September 30th, 2016.
Although fans have begged for more frequent releases, Seedless has upheld a high standard in their production quality and musicianship. Their unique blend of musical styles transcends genre barriers and makes certain to get their fans moving and thinking by weaving tight grooves with meaningful messages.

Pinning New York-based Liquid Todd down to one style of music is difficult. "I like all these different kinds of music," says the tall, pale DJ. "For me, playing a hip-hop set is great. And I love house." Nevertheless LT's name has become synonymous with techno and especially breakbeat - particularly in the 92.3 K-Rock-FM listening area, the NYC radio station that hosts his late-night, four-hour techno show Solid State. Having celebrated its fifth birthday on April 6, Solid State has introduced thousands of listeners (including suburban swaths in Connecticut and New Jersey) to names like Orbital, Dub Pistols, Coldplay and Underworld.

But Todd's reputation wasn't just won in a poorly lit radio booth - it also comes from poorly lit clubs, where Todd spins out regularly. "You have to [play live]; playing live is the best way to find out if you suck or not," says the 10-year radio and party veteran.

Continuing his tradition of making music available to the masses, Todd released his first mix CD, Action, in 1999, focusing on the breakbeats he often spins out. February saw the release of another mix CD, Solid State. Subtler and broader than Action, Solid State showcases a new level of maturity from Todd.

In addition, Todd's reach has begun extending into producing and remixing, as he's working on tracks from such heavy hitters as Fatboy Slim and the Chemical Brothers. HIs latest remix, Groove Armada's "My Friend," adds grinding rock guitars and a powerful beat, which aren't exactly Armada's signature sounds. But then again, what else can you expect from a man who plays techno on a rock & roll station? --Luciana Lopez (URB 93 | page 79 | MAY '02)
