In 2011 the world was introduced to the heart pounding, synth laden, hip hop infused sound created by none other than ELIM.

The unstoppable duo, comprised of two brothers, has carved out a niche that is all their own in the music industry. Their ability to create an atmosphere that gets the party started and keep it rockin' all night is a gift unlike any other. The tandem's irresistible sound draws crowds in, and their high energy performance keeps them coming back for more.
ELIM's frontmen boast skills that few others are blessed with, and a never ending drive for success to accompany it. The duo's hard work rewards listeners with exactly what they want- driving bass, catchy hooks, and lyrics with purpose as well as style.

Their sexy sound is sure to be igniting dance floors globally in the very near future, and that fits perfectly into ELIM's plans of sonic domination via radio airwaves as well as in the club.
Dance For The Dying - (Set time: 8:15 PM)
Dance For The Dying
Dance for the Dying is a synth-driven dance-rock quartet that effortlessly fuses the joyful with the melancholy to craft infectiously catchy tunes. Based in Washington, DC, the group was formed after drummer Chris Link found inspiration on a trip to India that set him on a musical mission. Through the power of the internet and mutual acquaintance, he recruited guitarist Joshua Hunter and vocalist M.C. Wolfe in 2009 and the three began crafting original songs while searching for a fourth member to solidify their sound. The band found their man when Guitarist-turned-Bassist Brad Cantor joined the group in 2010. The band has a distinct sound of 80′s and 90′s goth and pop with fast paced rock rhythms. Simply put – Dance for the Dying creates songs you could roller skate to on laser night.

Dance for the Dying released their eponymous debut EP in July, 2011. Shortly thereafter, select tracks from the EP became available on the Rock Band Network for Xbox. The strong demand for these tracks led to their inclusion for gameplay on the PlayStation 3 format as well.

The band's song "Echo" was included on Paul Frank's Academy of Awesome compilation (released Thanksgiving, 2011) and was listed as one of the Top 10 Songs of 2011 by DC 101′s "Local Lix" radio program. The band has also received steady air time on internet radio stations in the United States and Canada.

Dance for the Dying has continued to write new music while playing live shows for the past several months and will be returning to the studio to record new material in Spring, 2012.
