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.
DJ since 2008. I spin damn near anything and enjoy doing so immensely. Music is more than a hobby, it is a full-blown obsession.
I started out spinning goth and industrial and quickly found myself branching out into more and more EDM and other assorted music. Electro house, top 40, dubstep, hip hop, drum & bass / jungle, 80’s, and more. I have a wide appreciation for all kinds of music outside these areas as well and it seems to grow every day.
I have played at numerous clubs / bars, festivals, house parties, raves, and even do the odd wedding reception or birthday party. I just enjoy being a part of DJ culture and take every opportunity to expand my skills and increase my audience.
I am a part of several groups of talented individuals. Most recently I have been added as an admin at facebook.com/DJ.Mixes.Now and am starting to do interviews for their website at djmixesnow.com
I am a performer with Infinite Vibes Entertainment at facebook.com/InfiniteVibes, PimpinAzzBeatz at facebook.com/Nefarious.N8, and have been added as an artist and moderator at the newly founded Draynohed Productions at facebook.com/Dhprecords. I’m also the official DJ for a fantastic burlesque troupe called Creme de les Femmes. facebook.com/cremedelesfemmes

Words will inevitably fail to properly describe Freddy Todd. Genre-busting could be an understatement. You can’t pin him down with lexicon like lazer-bass and glitch-funk; these phrases fall way short of capturing the expressiveness, fearlessness, and space-traveling qualities of his music. Hearing his music is akin to being abducted by an extra-terrestrial cruise liner where everyone is tripping on space acid. And if you are lucky enough to witness him produce, you’ll see that he fittingly looks just like the captain of said space cruiser, both hands intently gripping his electronics like the instrument panel on the flight deck.
Let’s bring this back to earth real quick. His motown, soul, blues, jazz, funk, hiphop (and techno for that matter) roots are a given, being born just outside of Detroit in Southfield, MI in 1990. Freddy moved out of his parents house immediately upon turning 18 lusting for the world and the creative juices it has to offer, living briefly in Ferndale, MI at first, then to the outskirts of a rougher part of the city of Detroit near 7 mile and Lahser for two years to live with his then-band “Tone Poets”, producing for Scrummage hip-hop queen “Breezee One”, and wrapping up his second full length studio LP on Simplify Recordings, followed by a year in Chicago. After living in the midwest until the age of 22, his sights were set on the golden west. Moving cross-country and living two years in the Bay Area, living in both the hood of West Oakland followed by the Oakland Hills while writing and releasing the “Golden Tremendous” album and starting his next EP. After soaking up the Cali vibes, he returned across country for some more wholesome less-congested living in the blue ridge smokey mountains of Asheville, NC to be closer to family, where he currently resides.
Freddy Todd is truly a master of his craft not only in the studio but on stages across the globe. Without any pre-recorded sets, Freddy has the skills and the audacity to perform on the fly mixes of 100% original material tailored to his specific audience, mood, and venue each night, be it a theater in northern California, a club in the back alleys of Detroit, or an outdoor festival in the bush off the eastern coast of Australia (occasionally on special nights with his live drummer forming the FT Live Band/Duo). His earth shattering, meticulously programmed beats & rhythms, his lazer crunk, funky psychedelic bass & sound design, and his brain tingling, intelligently soul-soaked synths, melodies, & field-recorded samples are sure to shake your consciousness as they blast through airwaves out of top notch sound systems across the universe while Freddy serenades you with 100% live & improvised get-your-booty-on-the-floor analog Moog synthesizers & keytar, loop triggering, and occasional drums & percussive elements. Be careful where you don’t look.
Berkeley, California based producer Thriftworks offers his own uniquely original take on forward thinking electronic music, weaving eclectic samples and explosive modern bass that continually pushes the envelope while taking the art of beat-crafting to new heights. Garnering much praise from fans and critics alike with his steady stream of new material, Thriftworks is quickly becoming known as one of the finest up and coming experimental producers with his outside the box sound and unclassifiable style. Thriftworks’ use of deep low-end and wall to wall synths seem to channel something ancient and mysterious, offering up an intoxicating musical high with an invigorating breath of fresh air. These sounds activate the senses, enrapture the mind, move the body and leave audiences begging for more.
