with special guest…..
The jFET Project began in early 2011 by Producer / DJ “Jangatha.” After over 50 house music releases on some of the most respected labels in both digital and vinyl format, the need to seek fresh sounds was instilled and inspired by the edgy bass music arena. The focus is rather simple, to push fresh hype sounds in any BPM it fits best. jFET’s sounds have been catching on quick. His debut EP reached #15 on the Beatport Dubstep Release charts, and caught the attention of several respected blogs including The Untz. 2012 included a release from Play Me Records as part of the New Blood of Dubstep. With support from international touring acts such as Figure, Ajapai, and Reid Speed, we will likely be hearing much more to come from this eclectic project. jFET: Intergalactic Hitman / Producer / Performer.

Shy Guy Says
SHY GUY SAYS is an electronic music producer and performer straight from the Mushroom Kingdom, an 8bit villain ready to destroy any party at any time and somehow leave his victims wanting more. His eclectic, yet upbeat and danceable sound can best be described as a mixture of Hip Hop, Glitch Hop, Dubstep, Trap, and Drum N Bass.
It’s know for its heavy rhythmic swagger, yet at the same time can be lush and loaded with dirty synth bass sounds, warm ambiance, and 8-bit glitches.
Jeremy Daeger aka That Guy
Jeremy Daeger credits the beginning of his musical career to his father who handed him a DJ setup at the ripe age of 14. A hand-me-down from the neighbors, Daeger never knew it would be the beginning of a lifelong passion and hobby.
Like many self-taught DJs, he learned the ropes through relentless practice at beat-matching and mixing records. When the 90’s hit, Daeger embedded himself in the burgeoning rave scene and felt a renewed connection to music.
Reflecting on his earliest work experimenting with electronic music, Daeger explains, “I started with house music because it was a 4/4 style and easy to beat match.” It wasn’t long before he discovered the style of breaks in 2003, allowing him to branch out into new musical territory and leverage his love for hip hop and funk. “It’s more than just a beat,” Daeger says of his special blend of break beats and groovy jams. “It has vocals and familiar rhythms that people can really get into.”
An active member of the G9 Collective since 2009, That Guy The DJ’s distinct blend of hip hop and break beats further diversifies the well-rounded group of DJs. Mixing bass, funk and rhythms to make you want to dance, That Guy The DJ delivers guilty pleasures from your radio and iPod, but with more energy and sophistication.
A young producer taking the electronic music world by storm, at age 19 Alex Epps aka Cyberoptics first made his big smash into the scene with his release “Geisha” on Play Me Records. Geisha climbed to number 1 on the Beatport charts and held it’s place in the top 5 for over a month, battling producers such as Borgore and Doctor P.
His sound is influenced by every musical genre under the sun, and some from far past it. With a unique style that combines different themes, deep modulating bass, heavy sub, and one of-a-kind cosmic soundscapes, it’s almost impossible not to move your body to these alien sounding tones and ambient rhythms. Works of Cyberoptics can be found ranging from FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance” to Michael Bay’s “Battleship” trailer.
‘Cyberoptics’ 2nd release from Play Me Records “The Tie Fighter EP” exploded onto the Beatport top 20 with songs “Pimpin” hitting #3 “Geisha VIP” right behind at #4 and “Tie Fighter” and “Toasty” topping out at 14 and 17. Cyber’s unique style is constantly evolving with every song and spark of inspiration.
On September 16th 2013, Cyberoptics released his long awaited 17 track LP on Play Me Records. The release hit #1 in dubstep, drum & bass, electronica, and was the #1 of all releases on Beatport.

As for me… Where to begin…
Rudy Kizer has been a vocal advocate of electronic music, its artists and culture for over 20 years. Coming of age in the Chicago area, he was inspired by the legendary “Hot Mix 5” radio mixers and started spinning records in his bedroom. While at Purdue University, Rudy got his own turn on the air at WCCR, learning the ropes of format radio programming. An engineering student, his interests soon progressed from DJ to producer. After graduating, he started a multimedia production company and recording studio during the late ’90s Internet boom where he produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered a wide array of bands, vocalists, and electronic music projects.
From 2000-2006, he was a contributor and the primary producer for WRZX’s “Planet X” radio program (hosted by Jonathan Keith). He assisted in hosting Planet X’s “SPACE” events at Eden nightclub, bringing some of the hottest national and international DJ talent to perform in Indianapolis for the first time. Rudy has opened for Paul Van Dyk, The Crystal Method, DJ Dan, Bad Boy Bill, DJ Icey, and many others. His seasoned ear for good music and years of eclectic programming experience guides his floor-moving mix of electro-house, breaks, dubstep, and drum-and-bass. Beginning in the spring of 2007, Rudy became the host and producer of “Hit The Decks,” an alternative dance program, airing Sundays from 10pm to midnight on WRZX until June 2012.
