- CLICKS & WHISTLES - (T&A/ Fade To Mind/ Charlotte NC) ------
Despite the fact they're new on the scene, Clicks & Whistles are already showing that they're one of the most intriguing and exciting production duos in the US. Starting out as a long distance collaborative production project between Petey Evans, and Jorge Hernandez, they've both taken up residence in Charlotte, NC to focus on crafting their defining sound and spreading it to eager fans across the globe. That unique sound is comprised of many genres, including but not limited to: Southern rap and hip hop, dubstep, UK garage and funky, and everything in between.
The Clicks & Whistles sound has been perking the ears of some of the US's highly regarded electronic producers and labels as well. Starting with their Radiator/Cranberry Goose EP on Atlanta's Embassy Recordings, 2011 and 2012 will see forthcoming releases on Tittsworth and Ayres T&A Records and Kingdom's Fade to Mind imprint. There will certainly be plenty more on the horizon for this talented young duo, as they continue to expose the world to the unique sound of Clicks & Whistles.
- REILLY STEEL - (Top Billin/ SF) ---------------------------------------
Reilly Steel is a fresh new producer in the Bay Area bass music and dance scenes. With a solid arsenal of new releases on such labels as: Rockit Science, Trouble & Bass, Top Billin, Senseless, Brap Dem and Hot n Heavy, Reilly is hot out the gates and ready to rep SF well. This will be Reilly's second set at Grimey and a big one celebrating his new release on Top Billin. If you missed him the last time around...dont this time. The kid has heavy tunes.
- LIL MISS MIXER (Bass Union/ Dirty Krew/ Lake Tahoe) -----------
Samantha Rawlings aka Lil Miss Mixer is big sounds in a little package. Seducing the crowd with her unique style of dubstep, Samantha Rawlings, a.k.a. Lil Miss Mixer, has been changing peoples lives one beat at a time since the beginning of 2010. It was then that she realized that her heart beats at 70 beats per minute too! Lil Miss's exclusive blend of sexy female vocals, mixed with hip hop and heavy bass lines will soon have your heart beating in rhythm as well. She holds it down for Lake Tahoe and Reno's bass scenes. this will be her first set at Grimey. Were stoked to have her!
- SMOKEY & THE BANDIT (Geno Cochino and Paul Swytch of TRiLLBASS/ LA/ ATL) -------------------------------------------------
GENO COCHINO stepped into the dj/production scene in 2006 wielding a record bag full of an at the time unheard of genre that’s now taking over the globe, known as dubstep. His 6 year long love affair with the sound has led him to be recognized as one of the west coasts biggest ambassadors.
Whether playing the more up tempo dance floor side of things as Geno Cochino, rockin riddims alongside Hip Hop legend MYKA9, doing it deep and sexy as his alter ego SACRED G, or playing that future Purple gangster boogie alongside Paul Swytch (TRiLLBASS) in their dynamic duo SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT its always high energy, fresh, and cutting edge. He recently released two tracks he made on Hollowpoint records alongside Co Producer and label owner SPL. HOLY WAR, and UNION JACK have both seen dance floors globally and support from some of dubstep's key players. The last tune the two made together, MEDUSA was recently released on the legendary dubstep label SUBWAY recordings out of Holland on their much anticipated Destinations compilation with all three of the tunes charting in Beatports top 10.
Geno continues to push the scene in LA with his Monthly event WEST SIDE DUBZ at Zanzibar in Santa Monica.
He has also played at festivals such as Coachella, Lightning in a bottle, Manifesto gathering in Costa Rica, Shambhala in BC, Sonic Bloom,Symbiosis, Rain Dance, Emrg+ N+ See, and Burning Man as well as legendary west coast underground parties such as Space Island, Bassrush, Respect, Get Freaky, and Low End Theory. He has also shared the stage with some of the dubstep games biggest heavyweights such as RUSKO, CASPA, LOEFAH, HIJAK, L-WIZ, RESO, N-TYPE, MALA, BENGA, TRUTH and DMZ's legendary MC Sgt. Pokes.
