The Partysquad has been one of the most popular DJ formations in the Netherlands. With at least ten successful singles in the radio’s Top 40 charts, they have earned their credits. They had several international releases, such as the collaborations with Afrojack releasing the singles ‘Drop Down’ and ‘Amsterdamn’, which was their label (Spinnin Records) best-sold record, worldwide on Beatport. They also entered into a partnership with Diplo (Wesley Pentz).
The Grammy nominated DJ, producer and songwriter from Philadelphia. They were added to the playlists of the famous Annie Mac radio show (BBC Radio 1) which lead to the support of many big name artists. In 2011, they started focusing on international releases; along with releasing tracks on Mad Decent Records, the duo produced numerous tunes on their own record label and sub- label of Spinnin, Rebel Yard. One of their most famous international releases is the hardstyle and reggae- influenced hit that took the US by storm, ‘Original Don’ – in collaboration with Major Lazer (Diplo and Switch).
The guys were already making waves prior to ‘Original Don’; two years earlier they already released a reggae – infused EP at Mad Decent named ‘Hollertronix -10’. With their latest collection of tracks, ‘Badman Rave EP’, it is clear that these boys have a new, fresh and internationally successful sound. Their latest release through their own label is ‘Tranga’, in collaboration with Illuminati AMS. There are many more boundary-breaking releases to come.
Tommie Sunshine, mid-west rave legend and Brooklyn, NY resident, is raising the bar in electronic dance music. Covering ground as an artist, remixer, producer, vocalist, radio jock, label owner, DJ, and songwriter, it is safe to say that Tommie is a musical powerhouse! His legendary hybrid of live performances and DJ sets are now traveling the globe, and it won’t be long before there will be at least a little Tommie Sunshine in your life. Need big room house mixes of Sarah Conner or Andy Hunter?
Check. How about a rock/house hybrid for The Stills? Tommie Sunshine’s got it. Gary Glitter shuffle-beat for Good Charlotte? Not a problem. And how can we not mention Sunshine’s addicting, quirky techno? All of this will lead Tommie’s career somewhere, perhaps as a producer with a platinum record on his wall. In ADE’s case it definitely all leads to ‘Krush Groove’ Jimmy Woo. Be sure to check out his upcoming single on Vicious alongside The Disco Fries feat. Kid Sister- set to turn Australia on its ear.
You can also look out for his first ever EP, Growth, dropping October 25th. The EP features collaborations with Fast Eddie, The Partysquad, TAI, Kassiano, The Disco Fries, and Polina.
