Rusko - (Set time: 12:00 AM)
Rusko
Christopher Mercer, aka Rusko was born in Leeds in 1985 to a musical family. From day one Rusko was surrounded by music whether it be his families piano’s, guitars, banjo’s and saxophones…or in his later years the heavy reggae and dub sound systems of Leeds, music has always been an integral part of Rusko’s life.

After graduating from Leeds university with a degree in musical performance, Rusko discovered the world of dubstep through SUB DUB and a debut appearance from the “Digital Mystikz”, having spent the past 10 years making future dub alongside Leeds very own Iration Steppas, Rusko connected with the sound and moved down to London to further advance his musical opportunities.

Veering away from the dark, serious side of the sound Rusko bought a highly driven energy and fun approach to the dubstep massive, quickly coining his own take on the genre that infected . His sound appealed to many people outside of the dubstep world as his productions became more adventurous in formula, sound and energy. His huge hit “Cockney Thug” has been played by everyone from Pete Tong, Switch, Diplo and Santogold. And has been remixed by Buraka Som sistema, Diplo, Drop the Lime and the Scratch Perverts. Now part of the Mad Decent Camp with collaborations on the horizon with the likes of Switch, Diplo , Santigold, Trouble Andrew, Hot Chip and more…the future sure is looking bright. Currently setting the radio airwaves alight with his own productions and remixes of artists such as The Prodigy, Basement Jaxx, Little Boots and plenty more, Rusko is only going in one direction. Onwards, upwards and far beyond any other young producer could dream of.

Gent & Jawns - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Gent & Jawns
After developing respectable solo careers as DJs and producers, long-time friends Billy the Gent and Long Jawns officially banded together as Gent & Jawns becoming an unstoppable force in the world of club music. The release of their now classic Moombahton anthem “Vibrate” catapulted them to the top of everyone’s list of producers to work with and landed them remixes for Datsik, Bare, and Muffler, as well as collaborations with Nadastrom, Torro Torro and JWLS.

In early 2012 they worked with mega-producer Diplo on his Express Yourself EP, which topped the iTunes charts as the number one electronic album. They followed up with an absolutely stunning remix of the title track “Express Yourself,” which saw repeated plays by many of the top DJs in the world. Shortly after, they released “Holler,” their first official EP on Mad Decent’s Jeffrees label. Jeffrees went on to earn the iTunes Label of the Year honors. The duo ended the year proper when they released “TURNUP”, a party-inducing track that’s being called the biggest trap song of 2012. In two weeks the track saw 80,000 plays and held position as the top electronic song on SoundCloud.

While known for their world-class production, Gent & Jawns’ secret weapon is their ability to perform live. Long Jawns is a legend in his hometown of Richmond, VA, where he is widely known for throwing the biggest and best parties the city has seen in years. Billy The Gent began DJing with support from his friend Dave Nada (Nadastrom, creator of Moombahton) in Washington, DC and quickly became a staple at the famous U-Street Music Hall. Together, Gent & Jawns have gone on to share the stage with top notch acts like Diplo, Dillon Francis, Nadastrom, Caspa, Craze, Die Antwoord, and more.
