Pretty Lights

Derek Vincent Smith is an American electronic music artist who performs under the stage name Pretty Lights. Originally a duo project, Smith went on to be the sole-proprietor of Pretty Lights and his associated music label, Pretty Lights Music. Pretty Lights is widely regarded as one of the most innovative and envelope-pushing electronic musical projects of all time, often referred to as “the face and voice of the new American electronic music scene.” Smith started making music at an early age when he brought a bass guitar to a skateboarding session with friends. Smith credits artists like The Beastie Boys, The Alkaholiks, A Tribe Called Quest, Wu-Tang Clan, The Roots and The Casualties as influences of his musical style and includes old school hip hop, funk, punk rock and the overall skater culture as well. After graduating high school, Derek attending University of Colorado at Boulder – but dropped out during his freshman year to concentrate on his music instead.

Work on Pretty Lights began in 2004 and began playing late nights in 2007 and 2008 for larger acts such as STS9, The Disco Biscuits and Widespread Panic. After playing several venues around San Francisco, Texas and Arkansas, Derek started playing under the moniker Pretty Lights at some of the major festivals in the United States, including Bonnaroo, Forecastle, Wakarusa, Rothbury, Electric Daisy Carnival, Camp Bisco and the 10KLF. In 2010, Pretty Lights took to the road on a multi-city tour of the United States; including, Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and the Ultra Music Festival.

Pretty Lights music relies heavily on digital sampling and crosses many genres. The overall sound forming a combination of “glitchy hip hop beats, buzzing synth lines, and vintage funk and soul samples.” Pretty Lights sound is generated by manipulating samples and organic beats using digital controllers to program the music production; often using two Macbook Pros during live performances. Smith considers his music as “Electro Hip Hop Soul”, a mix between elements of electronic based music and beats from hip hop and soul music.

Ganja White Night

Ganja White Night is an electronic music band whose early influences are found at the roots of "Bass-Music". During the past decade, the duo traveled many countries in Europe and beyond. The band takes a new creative direction tinted with hip-hop and more generally hybrid electronic music after the release of their fourth album "Addiction" in 2014.

They decided to break the fetters that connected them almost exclusively to "Dubstep" and started using other forms of expression. It is therefore with their new album "Hybrid Distillery" that the group now has to make an impression by imposing its style in other genres of electronic music. This fifth album is not only another acoustic chapter, it is also about graphics. The draftsman/graffiti artist/director "Ebola - Delit2fuite" brings a whole new visual world mixed with, just like Ganja White Night, artistic originality and singularity never achieved until now.


Opiuo is a chief sufferer of intense musical addiction, spending every spare second creating audible treats and selling out venues throughout the entire world. He's performed alongside the likes of MC Hammer and Bassnectar, reached #1 chart positions on Beatport, Addictech, and iTunes. His latest full length release, "Slurp And Giggle" was nominated for Best Dance / Electronic Release at the Australian Independent Music Awards and was the most downloaded album for 2010 on addictech.com. In turn, inspiring and captivating people all over with his highly original and uncontrollably addictive take on fun fueled electronic music.

Live, Opiuo is an ever evolving feast for the ears. From a one man show equipped with drum machines and synths, all the way to The Opiuo Band, amassing a collection of the worlds best musician's to perform his music 100% live. The last Live National Australian tour showcased his ability to translate these electronic manipulations into a live form, showing the true musicality of Opiuo and his creative endeavors.


With roots at Vermont’s Castleton State University, Twiddle began their extensive touring career in 2005. Over a decade later, the foursome has composed an eclectic catalogue spanning three studio albums of originals, in addition to many live releases. Currently the band is digging in at the studio composing PLUMP Chapter Two, the second half of their acclaimed third album. Having performed at a multitude of international festivals, Twiddle’s trajectory shows zero sign of slowing. Look for them to pack prominent theaters throughout 2017, as they truly break through to the next level.


Containing all the right elements of funk, soul, blues, R&B, and electronica, Exmag is not just another EDM group, but a production collective who explore new means of pushing the limits by combining live instruments and vocalists with their own synthesized beats. From their street style to their verging-on Minnesota niceness, there is nothing less than real about these fellas. Always about the music, always about creating, the most attractive part about them is their obvious authenticity and raw artistry. Keeping their genuine interests as first priority the guys continue creating as a whole culture builds itself around the products of their imaginations.

Jade Cicada

Jade is a material thought by the ancient Chinese to be crystallized moonlight that has fallen to earth to spread wisdom and peace. Cicadas symbolize rebirth, metamorphosis, and illumination, and with their dying breath sing with such power that their chorus of song is among the loudest in nature. Jade Cicada's music is a reflection of these ideas, and a constant homage to those who have inspired him.
