This is our resurrection. Our rebirth into a new era of creativity and acceptance of one another. With this renaissance we encourage everyone to be themselves, welcome one another, be crazy and free, and cast your differences aside, or better yet, embrace them. It is time to shed old notions and drama, and come together again with a fresh new beginning. A change we have all been longing for and a time to refocus on what is really important, and inspiring. With spring comes a new dawn for growth and expression and we couldn't be in any better company on this journey.

Quoted from his fellow established artists; "Seven is a headliner DJ to make your event, his energetic performances, orchestrating euphoric vibes and big crowd reaction sums this up"…

London born and based producer / DJ Squarewave has been involved in the music scene since the age of 16. Having started out collecting records and playing at jungle / dnb parties - he moved onto production, with his early tracks receiving support on legendary pirate station Kool FM and support from the infamous Full Cycle crew from Bristol.

In 2006 after attending a club night in London called Ea...stern Drum and Breaks, a new relationship was born with the sounds of Nasha Records. Along with friend Shandy, and brother Sukh Knight - a new collective flourished called Nasha Experience, releasing many records from 2008 onwards - culminating in winning the "Best Alternative Act" at the UK Asian Music Awards in 2011.

Since then Squarewave has released tracks on some of the biggest labels in the dubstep scene, such as Boka Records and Hench Recordings, with music licensed to Ministry of Sound and Rinse FM.

Mr.Vandal entered the music world in 2011 and has evolved tremendously over the last few years gaining support from some of the top dogs in the scene. Mainly focusing on Trap, Dubstep & Dnb. He also takes influence in his productions from genres such as Hip Hop, Reggae, Latin, Oldies, Garage & Metal, making his tracks unique that gives each one it's own tradional sound.

In 2012, after Mr.Vandal had been posting his tracks to soundcloud for a sometime he got in contact with a few bigger artists and now has had his music played out by artists such as UZ, Liquid Stranger, Getter, Enigma Dubz, An-ten-nae, Dirt Monkey and many more.

This masked DJ has created quite the splash in the Bay Area dubstep scene. Since crawling out of the shadows in January of 2010 and joining the Irie Cartel crew, he has put out countless mixes, been in various publications, and helped start Ritual, one of the largest reoccurring dubstep events on the West Coast. He is a dubstep DJ with a wide range of styles from the ragga joints, to the sexy sub bass sounds, to the nasty filth, or the UK uptempo style. You may have seen him at the Emissions campout, the Dub Fillmore festival, the Elements campout, Camp Questionmark's stage at Burning Man, or opening for Borgore and Caspa. This phantom is showing no signs of slowing down and is forever expanding his style, and his passion for bass is infectious

The name comes from King Nebuchadnezzar II who was an evil ruler of ancient Babylon, and who built the Hanging Gardens. Eventually he was exiled and spent 7 years in the wilderness wandering the land like a beast. There are many rumors about the mask, no one knows the truth.
Johnny 5

If you reside in Northern California and frequent dubstep/bass music events, you almost certainly recognize the face behind the layers of wobbling bass, crunchy drums, and hypnotic melodies. An Oakland, CA resident, by way of Chicago, Johnny5 cut his teeth as an MC and hip-hop producer in both cities, sharing stages with the likes of independent legends T...ypical Cats as well as major acts including Raekwon and Devin the Dude.

In May of 2010 he co-founded San Francisco's most popular dubstep weekly, "Ritual Dubstep," every Thursday, starting at Anu bar, now residing in the catacombs at Temple night club, and soon transitioning to an exciting new SF location). This event unexpectedly blossomed from a small, intimate party, featuring mainly locals, into the largest weekly dubstep event on the West Coast. Ritual has hosted international heavyweights such as N-Type and Coki, as well as California heavy hitters such as Minnesota and Megalodon.

In March 2013, Johnny5 put out his first official release as a producer, the "Thuggin" EP (Irie Cartel Recordings), which is a collaborative effort with LA/SF producer Trevor Kelly. The EP features a diverse array of bass-heavy sounds, including filth ("XJ-13"), 808/rap ("O'Gizza" feat. Ro Knew), and a room-shaking trap version of the aforementioned "O'Gizza," remixed by rising star Taso.
