Goldrush Music Festival 2021 Official Phase 1 Lineup!
Above & Beyond
Above & Beyond
Above & Beyond, or Jono, Tony and Paavo as they are better known to their legions of fans around the world, have been at the forefront of electronic dance music for two decades.
Founders of the iconic Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep record labels and hosts of a weekly radio show, that reaches millions of dance lovers every Friday (Group Therapy), the trio have earned two GRAMMY™️nominations for anthems 'Northern Soul' feat. Richard Bedford and We're All We Need feat. Zoë Johnston. In 2018, the band’s fourth electronic album, Common Ground, debuted at number three on the Official Billboard Album Chart.
Described by UK music bible Q Magazine as “the world’s biggest cult band”, Above & Beyond's enviable list of sold out shows includes headline performances at historic venues like Madison Square Garden NYC, The Hollywood Bowl, The Sydney Opera House, Royal Albert Hall London, Red Rocks Amphitheater and record-breaking turnouts for their own festival events on LA's Huntington Beach and at The Gorge Amphitheater in Washington State.
Songwriters first, producers second, Above & Beyond’s unwavering commitment to their craft has fuelled a career that many electronic artists today might only dream of: four acclaimed studio albums, 14 compilation albums, two ‘acoustic’ albums and a stand-alone album for yoga and meditation - not to mention innumerable club cuts and dance remixes.
Eric Seall –better known by his stage name Ace Aura– is an American bass music producer and DJ, best known for his heavy, chord-driven take on dubstep (often referred to as “melodic/harmonic riddim”). He has received a great degree of attention in recent months for his unique style, garnering support from the likes of Zomboy, NGHTMRE & SLANDER, Zeds Dead, Ookay, 12th Planet, Flux Pavilion, Borgore and many more.
Seall grew up in a Protestant household in McKinney, TX (an exurb of Dallas) and grew to be a passionate Christian at a young age. He began producing and uploading faith-influenced EDM songs to YouTube under the name “Ace Aura” in 2012 and has unashamedly continued down that same path ever since.
It wasn’t long before Ace Aura started being recognized in a more serious capacity, landing releases on labels like Ninety9Lives and Most Addictive. Seall’s innovative take on the Excision-supported “Wait for Me” by Chime caught the attention of the colour bass mastermind himself and marked the beginning of an ongoing friendship between the two.
Chime’s support played an important role in much of Ace Aura’s success during the following months, with many of Seall’s key releases being put out on the UK producer’s Rushdown imprint. Ace Aura’s involvement with Rushdown spawned several collaborations with Chime, including a remix of Ray Volpe’s “Wet Napkin” and the original “Interdimensional” (off Chime’s Disciple-released EP of the same name).
Beyond the release of “Interdimensional,” 2019 came as the biggest year for Seall’s career thus far. The year saw the release of Seall’s first DubstepGutter-supported original (“Flow”) a collaboration with Oolacile (“Stars”) and two big releases with rising bass music label Ōdio Records (“Gamma,” “Radiate”), as well as his first headline show (Seattle, WA) and a coveted opening slot at SVDDEN DEATH’s sold out debut at the Ogden Theater (Denver, CO).
2019 also saw the release of Seall’s highly-anticipated “Coma” on Circus Records (the track’s Twitter preview saw a degree of virality, catching the attention of names like Subtronics, Vincent and Cookie Monsta). “Coma” followed a similar path to previous releases like “Tongues of Fire,” weaving in a segments of the producer’s faith-driven narrative. Just days after the song was released, it became Seall’s first Beatport top 10 entry, peaking at #9 on the site’s dubstep chart.
2020 is gearing up to be another groundbreaking year for Ace Aura, as the surprise Trinergy collaboration “Self-Love” –the second single from his story-driven EP Comatose– has already become one of the producer’s most well-loved releases. With bigger remixes & collaborations than ever before lined up and Ace Aura’s first North American tour just on the horizon, it is fair for fans to expect the unexpected this year.

strong, with the release of “Like What” on his own imprint CLNE. It quickly climbed to #1 on
Beatport’s Tech House Chart and further solidified his ranks as one of the leading
up-and-coming producers in house music. It come of no surprise when legendary Chris Lake

Her inventive records allow her to avoid labels and continually reinvent her sound, resulting in a fan base that spans the indie electronic, pop and dance genres.
Devault is nothing short of impressive...
What started as a creative hobby in the calm scenes of Orange County soon became a personal quest to form something bigger than a unique venture -- a modern grunge-esque landscape that takes integral instrumentation with an out of the box like sound design and casts visuals that would be reminiscent of an earlier time where rawness and vulnerability was glorified. The desire to create music and becoming an electronic artist has always been a hidden pulse in his life, whether it stemmed from his early obsessions over Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan and A$AP Rocky, or analyzing the blend of fashion, film, and music altogether. It's no longer a search for genre, but rather an evolving sound, appreciating the trials of young adulthood at age 21 and letting him and his audience grow into something beyond a young man and his music.
The journey of Devault is fairly new, but 2017 has sped up his emergence into the scene, already becoming the hottest ticket for official redos of songs as well as garnering well over 10 million total streams on Spotify. This year alone, Devault has been tapped for official remixes with Rihanna, AlunaGeorge, and Kehlani, amassing millions of plays on all platforms and being a crucial part for Rihanna's "Sex With Me" #1 spot on the Billboard Dance charts.
"Everything is so accessible now that it has become quite unique to get my point across outside of just my music catalogue," he notes. "I'm able to showcase various arts to my audience beyond sound that can convey my thoughts and past emotions. The world I'm creating is vast but specific. Dark emotion and vibrant energy in perfect sequence, and as time presses forward, it will only become more narrow and focused."
With a large demand for new material and talks of a grand live presence, Devault is showing signs of the modern new wave splash on the industry that is taking hold. His current mid-tempo electronica flare has caught ears and leaves the next chapter as exciting as the first.
Dombresky is here to stay. Arriving in Miami in 2016 from Montpellier, France, Dombresky was inspired to createmusic that was fun and danceable.

Dombresky wrapped 2019 with two incredible headlining spots atSnowglobe and Countdown NYE respectively.

Thomas Wesley Pentz, better known as Diplo, is one of the most dynamic forces in music today. The Grammy-winning artist is as much an international brand as he is a musician/DJ/producer. Year after year, he’s proven himself to be a ubiquitous cultural figure, consistently bridging high and low, mainstream and underground, with remarkable tact and reverence.
A decade since its inception, Diplo’s original group Major Lazer continues to influence the sound of modern music. Most recently, Diplo’s Major Lazer unveiled “Que Calor,” featuring J Balvin and Dominican dembow pioneer El Alfa, alongside a brand new video to critical acclaim. The new track follows summer release “Make It Hot,” which features Brazilian superstar Anitta from Major Lazer’s forthcoming and highly-anticipated fourth album. This summer Major Lazer was also featured on Beyonce’s The Lion King: The Gift soundtrack alongside Shatta Wale on “ALREADY”. This all comes off the heels of history making singles “Lean On” and “Cold Water,” which have both surpassed one billion streams on Spotify. Their fourth album is forthcoming.
Earlier this year Diplo unveiled a new country project, Thomas Wesley, and released its first track, “So Long,” featuring Nashville superstar Cam, which Rolling Stone praised as “an impressively graceful dip into country.” The release was followed by a performance at Stagecoach Festival where at the first ever Stagecoach Late Night, he welcomed Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus for the live debut of “Old Town Road,” and promptly shared his remix of the viral hit. Wesley then unveiled a second track called, “Heartless” which was accompanied by a music video featuring Platinum artist, songwriter Morgan Wallen. This was the second of several forthcoming collaborations due to appear on Diplo’s country EP coming later this year.
Simultaneously, Diplo returned to his electronic roots with the deep house-inspired Higher Ground EP, debuted a brand new show at his Coachella headline set, and released the Europa EP for which he hand selected a cast of rising European artists. On his own, the producer continues to discover and collaborate with the most exciting new voices in music including Trippie Redd, Poppy, Bad Bunny and Octavian. As one of pop’s most in-demand producers, Diplo has worked with artists such as Beyoncé -- producing two songs on the Grammy-nominated Lemonade, Justin Bieber, Madonna, Lil Wayne, Bruno Mars, Britney Spears, Wale, Ariana Grande, 2 Chainz, Quavo, Travis Scott, Travis Porter, Usher, Snoop Dogg, Azealia Banks, Die Antwoord, Camila Cabello, Sean Paul, Robyn, AlunaGeorge and many more.
Diplo consistently exercises his collaborative spirit and singular talent for transcending genre and cultural boundaries. With the formation of two new groups, Diplo continues his streak as a global hitmaker -- LSD a psychedelic supergroup with Sia and Labrinth that was streamed nearly one billion times and Silk City, the disco-influenced venture with Mark Ronson. Since the debut of Silk City, the duo has collaborated with Dua Lipa for the Grammy winning house hit “Electricity,” as well as releases with GoldLink, Desiignerand Mapei.
Diplo’s rise to fame began in 2004 with his critically- acclaimed debut album Florida which caught the attention of then-breaking M.I.A., who partnered with Pentz to release the mixtape Piracy Funds Terrorism Vol. 1. and eventually the Grammy-nominated track “Paper Planes” in 2007, which hit #4 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Chart and has sold more than three million copies.
In 2005, Diplo founded label/culture lab Mad Decent to lend his globally-recognized voice to the sounds he encounters traveling the world. Mad Decent has gone on to release music from a dynamic range of artists that include Santigold, Omar Souleyman, Gucci Mane, Dillon Francis, Baauer and more. Diplo founded his global dancehall group Major Lazer in 2008 to great critical acclaim. Their 2015 smash hit, “Lean On” with DJ Snake and MØ, became the most streamed song on Spotify of all time and hit more than 1 billion views on YouTube, making it one of the Top 10 most watched music videos ever. The double platinum single “Where Are Ü Now” featuring Justin Bieber from his Jack Ü collaboration with Skrillex has enjoyed similar success and won the group numerous awards including an MTV European Music Awards as well as an American Music Award for Collaboration of the year. Both of Diplo’s 2015 releases-Major Lazer’s Peace Is The Mission and Skrillex and Diplo Present: Jack Ü- topped the Billboard charts for #1 Dance/Electronic Album. As one of pop’s most in-demand producers, Diplo has worked with artists such as Beyoncé -- producing two songs on the Grammy nominated Lemonade, Justin Bieber, Madonna, Lil Wayne, Bruno Mars, Britney Spears, Wale, Chris Brown, Ariana Grande, 2 Chainz, Quavo, Travis Scott, Travis Porter, Usher, Snoop Dogg, Azealia Banks, Die Antwoord, Camila Cabello, Sean Paul, Robyn, AlunaGeorge and many more.
His last EP, California, served as Diplo’s first body of work as a solo artist in more than five years, and the latest entry into a catalog that continues to defy genre and convention. Diplo continues to tour the world over, playing 300 shows a year with Major Lazer and under his own moniker, including headlining Mad Decent Block Parties worldwide and a legendary Vegas residency. Recent stops include Pakistan, Brazil, Nepal, Bangladesh, Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, Croatia, China, Mexico, Italy, Korea, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Austria, Germany, Hungary and beyond.
Originating from Phoenix, Arizona, Ekonovah is on a simple mission: to influence the electronic
music scene with a new sound. With original vocals and a unique approach to songwriting, the 23-year-old is just at the beginning of his musical journey.
Playing cities like Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, and festivals like EDC LV and Bonnaroo, Ekonovah is leaving his sonic footprint and distinguished sound across the nation.

Entrepreneur, Creative Director, Label Owner - just a few titles American music producer Tanner Petulla, professionally known as Getter, can claim. With the launch of his own clothing line Trippy Burger, the creation of his own record label “Shred Collective” - both sitting in multiple Zumiez stores nationwide - appearances on Last Call with Carson Daly, Real Bros of Simi Valley via Facebook Watch and consistently touring worldwide, Getter has become a household name.
As he consistently grows as an artist, so does his musical repertoire. Evolving from aggressive basslines early in his career, dabbling in hip hop as he appears on Pouya, Dumbfoundead, and $UICIDEBOY$ albums, experimenting in metal, to his current sound of vocally driven, emotional melodic blends of beats sailing buoyantly over waves of reverb and bass - there’s truly no genre safe to his touch.
Expect the unexpected as Getter expands into a new realm of artistry and pushes himself as a creative.

Houston-born, Los Angeles-based producer/DJ KAYZO, née Hayden Capuozzo, is one of the fastest-rising electronic artists of this decade. From his humble beginnings as an eager student at the Icon Collective music production school in L.A. to his official debut as the winner of Insomniac Events’ Discovery Project competition in 2012, KAYZO has since graduated from budding producer to breakthrough artist in just over five years. Recognized as one of Billboard Dance’s 100 Artists of 2019 (#67), KAYZO is today a bona fide global act.
His bass-fluid, shapeshifting sound and bold take on production has come to define KAYZO’s electrifying style and creatively experimental direction, as best captured on OVERLOAD, his debut artist album. Released January 2018 on his own Welcome Records imprint, distributed by Ultra Music, and counting more than 13 million streams on Spotify alone, OVERLOAD encapsulates the new KAYZO sound: a stimulating, cross-genre blend of rock theatrics and electronic futurism.
These days, he’s taking the electronic-rock hybrid to new ground. In May 2018, he remixed the 2000 alt-metal smash hit “Last Resort” from nu metal icons Papa Roach. Dubbed a “real smasher” by Billboard, the remix has amassed more than 13 million Spotify streams. Elsewhere, the dubstep monster “Wake Up,” his collaboration with RIOT, counts more than 20 million streams on Spotify, with an additional 3 million on SoundCloud. KAYZO has continued to blend the genre of rock and electronic music with releases “Fake Fake Fake” featuring XO Sad and a highly anticipated song with Underoath titled “Wasted Space.”
KAYZO’s versatile sound—high-energy melodies bestrewn with pummeling beats—defies genres and challenges sonic boundaries: In one single song, he’ll traverse heavy metal via shredding guitar solos, dubstep-heavy bass, hardstyle-fueled aggression, and hypnotizing psytrance loops. His flexibility as a producer has earned him official releases with all the top dogs in electronic music and has garnered him collaborations with and remix duties for electronic giants like DJ Snake, Steve Aoki, and SLANDER, among many others. Most recently, he’s joined the coveted roster of Ultra Music, where he’ll take the KAYZO sound to new heights.
A tastemaker in his own right, KAYZO founded his own artist-run imprint, Doghouse Recordings, in 2016, which he later relaunched as Welcome Records in 2017. He also hosts his biweekly Doghouse Radio show, which airs every other Friday at 4pm PT/7pm ET on SiriusXM Channel 730 as part of Insomniac Radio.
On the live front, KAYZO’s genre-defying DJ sets and “high-octane performances” (Billboard) have gained him a dedicated international following. To date, he’s performed across the world’s top venues and festival stages including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Tomorrowland, EDC Las Vegas, Electric Zoo, Voodoo, Parookaville, ÎleSoniq, and more. In 2018, he launched the 39-date Overload Tour, his inaugural headlining North American trek in support of his OVERLOAD album. He’s also hosted numerous Doghouse Takeover shows—large-scale events based on KAYZO’s Doghouse brand—across the country, including a sold-out performance at the iconic Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles in 2017. In 2019, KAYZO has expanded the Doghouse Takeover on a national scale with Doghouse Unleashed.
Through his fusion of genres and sounds, which seamlessly flows through hardstyle, trap, bass, dubstep, rock, metal, and beyond, KAYZO has crafted a style that is ultimately and inimitably his own. Welcome to the Doghouse.
Kill The Noise
Kill The Noise
The music of Jake Stanczak, better known as American producer and DJ, Kill the Noise, was born out of an era where Ridley Scott imagined utopian futures on the silver screen, and artists like NIN and Aphex Twin rocked MTV.
After channeling the influences of his youth through over a decades’ worth of forwarddriven electronic releases (Roots, Kill Kill Kill, Black Magic), and charismatic live shows (Coachella, EDC, Lollapalooza), the name “Kill the Noise” has become synonymous with some of the leading acts in dance music — getting creative in the studio with the likes of Tommy Trash, Deadmau5 and Skrillex.
In 2014 alone, Kill The Noise has already won his second MTV Video Music Award, co-written the first single (and title-track) from Skrillex's album "Recess", collaborated with Mat Zo (Kill The Zo) and produced the feature track for Paramount's 2014 film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ("Shell Shocked feat Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J and Ty Dolla$"). More driven than ever to push forward on all platforms of audio and visual collaboration, Kill the Noise now has sights set on a massive stretch of international tour dates, as well as an upcoming EP of original work.

These releases have resulted in performances at some of the biggest stages in the US; having
landed gigs at EDC Las Vegas, Nocturnal Wonderland, Beyond Wonderland, North Coast Music
Festival and more. Kyle’s music has also garnered support from industry heavyweights Gorgon
City, Lee Foss, Claptone, and Noizu; showcasing him as an artist worth keeping your eye on
during 2021 and beyond.
NGHTMRE's ascent to the upper echelons of dance music stardom has been nothing short of
dream-like. His meticulous production and pulsating performances have cemented him as both a
festival mainstay and dance music tastemaker. His collaborations with Zeds Dead, Dillon Francis,
Flux Pavilion and SLANDER have catapulted him across the world, from Tomorrowland in Belgium
to World DJ Fest in Seoul.
NGHTMRE burst onto the scene in 2015, when Skrillex dropped his unreleased single "Street" on
the main stage at Ultra Music Festival – electronic music's premiere event. That record would go
on to be one of the biggest trap songs of the summer and lead Tyler Marenyi to become the darling
of Diplo's Mad Decent imprint, an international festival superstar, and a resident DJ at Las Vegas's
Tyler then embarked on a near sell-out, thirty-four city "Gud Vibrations" US bus tour with best
friends Derek and Scott of SLANDER. Their GV brand has seen exponential growth with a
worldwide audience; it began with back to back sellout nights headlining the Hollywood Palladium,
quickly followed by packing the NOS Events Center with 10,000 fans. The boys then took Gud
Vibrations global with an Australia & New Zealand and Asia tours, a takeover of Red Rocks
amphitheater, and a Miami Boat Party during Miami Music Week. You can also hear their weekly
Gud Vibrations radio show on Sirius XM's Diplo's Revolution, with both NGHTMRE and SLANDER
hosting the show. Most notably, NGHTMRE and SLANDER took the plunge and launched Gud
Vibrations as an official record label in late 2018, choosing up-and-comer WAVEDASH as their
premiere artist with the release of the label's first track, “Deathwish.”
NGHTMRE's resume hosts a slew of successful music and star-studded collaborations, including
his explorative "Magic Hour" EP with Pell, the trippy "Another Dimension" with Dillon Francis, "Save
Yourself" with the Chainsmokers, "Like That" with Big Gigantic and "TTM" with Whiz Khalifa and
PnB Rock. His remixes of Ekali and ZHU's "Blame" and Flosstradamus ft. Smokepurpp's "MVP”
are equally as compelling, as if everything NGHTMRE touches conducts electricity. His well-
deserved reputation as a top-notch live performer has led to a packed tour schedule that included
the main stage at EDC Las Vegas, Billboard Hot 100 Fest, Hakkasan Las Vegas residency,
Lollapalooza (Chicago, Paris, Berlin), Electric Zoo, Mysteryland, Creamfields, Amnesia Ibiza,
Space Ibiza, Cream Ibiza, Shambhala, Middlelands, Coachella, Zouk, Ultra Music Festival, Holy
Ship!, and Tomorrowland. Tyler rounded out 2018 with his "NGHTMRE Before Xmas" tour, which
sold out its shows in both San Francisco and Los Angeles for 8,500 and 6,300 people, respectively.
Look out for what's next from this ace of bass as he surges full speed ahead into 2019.

Player Dave is a force against calamity. Born Charlie Sahm of San Clemente, the luminous
producer is a testament to the therapeutic profit of sound. Steeped in ambition and intrigue, Sahm
was raised exploring a comprehensive array of instruments. Growing up surveying the wonders
of piano, bass, percussion, violin, cello, and more, his larger-than-life aspirations were far more
prodigal than the average teenager. Between a social slump and a spine injury, Sahm found
solace in writing rhymes. But as a natural-born innovator, his penchant for poetic prose wouldn’t
be satisfied until he had the instrumentals to match. This niche predicament ultimately forged the
foundation of his magnum opus- Player Dave. Originally inspired by the golden age of
SoundCloud, Player Dave distills beat driven hip-hop and psychedelic bass to define his
signature bravado. To no one's disbelief, the North American club scene and festival circuit took
an immediate shine to his innovative drawl. Stupefying stages from the West Coast to the East
coast, and appearing at festivals like Lightning in a Bottle and Symbiosis, so began Player
Dave’s ascent to legend status. But in 2019, Player Dave retracted from music when creation was
replaced with crisis. Following a series of rehabilitation, reformation, and redemption, Player
Dave returns in 2021 with sober manifestos on recovery. The genesis of a new era for the
producer begins with his forthcoming studio album Where The Wind Blew Me, where listeners
will witness the transformation of a soul through sound. A riot softened by the blow of the
human experience, Player Dave is anything but ordinary.
UK-born producer/DJ Rikki Moore, aka Trampa, has positioned himself as one of the leading dubstep producers of his generation with relentlessly heavy and gritty productions. He first garnered the attention of industry heavyweights after numerous impressive releases through Never Say Die Record’s Black Label.
2021 saw the release of his hotly anticipated debut album 'Disrespect' which volleyed hardcore dubstep into the top ten charts across Apple Music, Spotify and Beatport. Given his trademark sound, honed over a dozen years – craftly leveraging him onto the biggest stages in the genre. 2022 looks to be another year for the scrapbook for Bass Musics favourite prodigal son.
T-R-O-Y-B-O-I. These letters are chanted by the masses at his shows, but the question is, who is the artist incorporating stunning visuals, live instruments, talented dancers and those jaw dropping aerialists? Troy Henry, the elusive producer who has classified himself as a music manipulation specialist, got his start making his beats standing up in his kitchen, in his studio apartment on his Mac Book and a midi keyboard. This humble and hungry creative prefers to stand so he is able to dance along to his tracks as he creates so he can feel the groove that he wants his audience to experience. Sometimes when the mood strikes him, his fancy footwork can be seen on stage! The TroyBoi Experience is indeed a musical journey of hard hitting beats, lights, visuals, and the unexpected.
While his musical style can be broadly classified as trap, it’s extraordinarily unique, versatile, and fuses various textures from multiple genres. He is of Nigerian, Indian, Chinese, and Portuguese descent and he credits this (along with growing up in London, with its own blend of cultures and genres) for the diversity that is reflected in his music. Troyboi’s sound has evolved from when he began his musical journey to now headlining at some of the world's largest festival stages such as HARD, Coachella, Life Is Beautiful, EDC China, Electric Zoo, and Lollapalooza in the US and also Paris to just name a few. Troy also has concluded his first successful Las Vegas residency season with Drai's Beachclub and Ushuaia in Ibiza, Spain.
Troy just wrapped up his first leg of his North American headline tour, titled “Nostalgia”, which kicked off October 2, 2019 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. The tour featured his upcoming Single, "Ring my Bell", releasing on Skrillex’s record label OWSLA on Oct 4, 2019, and will showcase elements of classic soul from the 70’s.
The fall tour featured TroyBoi playing venues in major U.S. cities including Colorado’s Red Rocks, Los Angeles’ The Shrine, San Francisco’s Bill Graham, and Washington DC’s Echostage just to name a few. Phase one of the tour concluded on December 22 with a concert at New York’s Great Hall at Avant Gardner.
Also in 2019, Rihanna featured two of TroyBoi’s songs, “Do You?” And “Malokara” during New York Fashion Week at her SavagexFenty, which debuted on Amazon Prime on Sept 20th.
In 2020, Troy will be playing at various festivals and also being a headliner for a nationwide competition with the Monster Up and Up Festival, where 7 lucky schools will win a chance to have a festival for their students featuring TroyBoi. He is also looking forward to releasing more music and focusing on production.
With electronic music continuing to grow and expand, standing out may seem like a difficult task for an artist. For TYNAN, standing out has always been a part of who he is. TYNAN has been producing the Dark Trap style sounds that have been blown up on the internet. Nothing is too weird or too unusual when it comes to his sound of music, generally that is just what he ends up with. He is a weird guy, who has found a way to express who he is while connecting with many others who can relate to him through his music.
Vintage Culture only truly feels alive when he's speaking to people through his music. "When I
am playing my own tracks and people smile at me, that is life," says the Brazilian. And so far, his
life has been a nonstop adventure. What started in 2008 as tinkering in a bedroom in a tiny
Brazilian city in the middle of nowhere has now led him to play to sold-out crowds of 25000
people at his own So Track Boa Festival, touring the United States, gracing the cover of Rolling
Stone Magazine, making the Forbes 30 Under 30 list and going multi-platinum with more than
1.5 billion global online streams.

people through music. He is someone constantly eating away at traditional genre boundaries as

stunning vocal, beautiful piano chords and an effortless baseline, as well as "Coffee” with Tiësto,
“Party On My Own” with his countryman Alok, and Volume 4 of his own Vintage Culture &
Friends compilation. This year's "Cali Dreams" with Fancy Inc featuring The Beach is already a
huge smash with its lush, rousing synths and impassioned vocals.

collaborations with artists including Jorja Smith, Moby and Sia. Many Vintage Culture releases
have been certified Platinum, and he has topped the Billboard Hot Dance, Spotify Dance and
Beatport Main Overall Charts multiple times for his releases on Spinnin' Records, Defected and

to hundreds in a club or thousands on a festival main stage. He prefers to go long so he can
really dig deep into his collection, and loves sunset or sundown sets so he can create those
extra special, spine-tingling moments of real musical magic. "I'm a vibe connector," he says with

Chicago, Tomorrowland, Creamfields, Ushuaia Ibiza, Pacha Ibiza, Parookaville, Ruiz spent the

100 new tracks, Vintage Culture is ready to hit the road and once again spread his unique brand
of musical positivity with the world.
Multi-platinum, GRAMMY award-winning artist/DJ/producer Zedd made his debut with Clarity after signing with Interscope in 2012 and has been breaking down barriers surrounding music genres ever since. With his latest single, “Get Low” with Liam Payne, Zedd ventures into a more urban musical domain that Entertainment Weekly called a “sizzling summer jam” and is quickly climbing the charts at Top 40 Radio. Earlier this year, Zedd teamed up with Alessia Cara to record “Stay,” a track that veers into a new direction for both artists, and landed Zedd his first #1 at Top 40. Zedd also single-handedly organized WELCOME!, an ACLU fundraising concert with a lineup that spans the music spectrum. As an immigrant himself, born in Russia and raised in Germany, the concert was born out of Zedd’s desire to stand up for basic human rights and 100% of its profits benefitted the ACLU. Throughout his career, Zedd has worked with a diverse range of artists, including Foxes on “Clarity,” which soared to No.2 on Top 40 and sold 2.6 million copies, and Hayley Williams on Platinum hit “Stay The Night,” which racked up more than 400 million streams. In 2015, Zedd released True Colors, which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, No. 1 on the Dance/Electronic Albums chart, and earned Zedd a 2016 Billboard Music Award for “Best Dance Album.” Its lead single “I Want You to Know” (ft. Selena Gomez) spent four weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and has been certified Platinum, while second single, “Beautiful Now” (feat. Jon Bellion), has been certified Gold. In 2016, Zedd teamed up with Aloe Blacc on “Candyman” to kick off M&M’s 75th anniversary celebration and released smash hit “Starving” featuring Hailee Steinfeld and Grey, which soared to top 10 on Top 40 radio and amassed over 240 million plays on Spotify alone in just four months.
