Christian the DJ
Christ!an is a South Bend transplant. His first electronic event was 1998; by 1999, he started to put ear-to-decks to explore music as he wanted to explore, taking his cues from fellow technological adventurers Ean Golden and Richie Hawtin, tapering it with the narrative design of a Josh Wink set and the experimental heart of Flying Lotus. His is the fist for the New Boogie Coup, with a diverse musical palette and insatiable drive that is the culmination of years of dancing, watching, and learning, and designed for one thing only: the groove. With the technical precision of a rocket surgeon, he’s had mixes featured on Traktor Tips’ blog and MojoRadio. His mission is accomplished if the audience status quo has been challenged and the dance floor is drenched.
From the track record of Robert Balotsky’s work as Buku, it’s clear that the Pittsburgh native and graduate of Music Technology is a well-equipped architect of twisted, layered soundscapes. With a menacing grasp on sound design and music theory, Buku combines deceptively simple and emotive melodies, laden with resounding low-end and intricate drum patterns. With a love of drums rooting from childhood, his work reflects his passion – emitting percussive elements only a trained ear could produce.
Buku’s debut EP release, ‘Janky’, sent a shotgun blast into the Bass Music scene – quickly gaining support and full rotation by Diplo, who described Balotsky’s production style as ‘where dubstep is going’ at the brink of 2013. Following his break into the genre, the producer has been championed by a variety of curators, including Bassnectar, Pete Tong & Zane Lowe, as well as garnering the support of his peers for collaborations with the likes of Paper Diamond, G. Jones, in addition to being tapped for remix duties for Minnesota, Griz, Nick Catchdubs, Brillz & Tropkillaz.
With a strong support from the industry, Buku has seen releases on OWSLA’s NEST HQ, UKF’s Pilot Records, as well as features on Fool’s Gold, Main Course & Mad Decent. The producer’s latest single, ‘Front To Back’, has further solidified his stance in the scene – going viral in only a few weeks upon release, quickly climbing Spotify’s “Global Viral 50” chart to hold the #3 spot, as well as holding a #1 rank on Hype Machine throughout late 2016.
As a result of his consistent output, Buku has quickly placed himself at the forefront of rising talent amongst North American producers – an impressive track record only further supported by his latest EP, ‘No Dramas’, released through the dominant Dutch dance music purveyor, Spinnin’ Records. With more releases slated for the new year, a non-stop touring schedule made up of domestic and international markets, as well as a packed festival season, and continued support from top labels & industry heavyweights, 2017 will surely see Buku’s continued upwards trajectory.
Luzcid’s music is a sonic odyssey. A series of auditory adventures in which the participants completely escape time and space. He meticulously eludes genres in order to welcome a variety of enthusiasts to gather and celebrate the rewards of community. Luzcid hopes music can become platform in which the peoples of the world can reconnect and begin to restore our home to a place in which we all enjoy living.
He has already performed in almost every major US city and continues to spread his wings across the music community.Although his production stands proudly on its own ,Luzcid has proven he is one of those acts you need to experience live to get the full picture. He uses ableton live to weld a sonic quilt of sensationally hefty hip-hoppy psychedelic bass music.
His song with Bassnectar “Science Fiction” is a splendid illustration of Luzcid’s ability to collaborate and conceive a fierce beauty with one of EDM’s most revered artists.
