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 family’s pianos, guitars, banjos and saxophones… or the heavy reggae and dub sound systems of later years in Leeds, music has always been an integral part of Rusko’s life. Now at 25, Rusko is only in first gear, with collaborations on the table with the likes of Switch, Diplo , Yo Majesty and Wiley, the future sure is looking bright. Already setting the radio airwaves alight with his own productions and remixes of artists like Adele and A-Trak featuring Kid Sister, Rusko is headed in the right directions. Onwards, upwards and far beyond what most producers can dream of. Rusko’s debut album, O.M.G.! will be released May 4, 2010 on Mad Decent.


What do Ibiza Rocks, Wax:On, Metropolis and Reclaim The Dance Floor all have in common? The cream of international DJ line-ups? Legendary tales of debauchery? A clutch of awards and critical acclaim? Yes, yes, and yes, and one more important ingredient; genre-hopping resident and rapidly rising UK producer/DJ talent, Doorly. Presiding over an electronic melting pot of techno, electro, Futureg Garage, drum’n’bass and dubstep doused with hip-hop and splashes of indie; Doorly’s movement behind the decks is relentless. Scratching and splicing riffs, loops, beats and bass to form a sonically seamless, mash-up masterpiece as seen on his recent Radio 1 mini-mix for Annie Mac; it’s understandable that Doorly is often described as ‘an old school block party DJ using new school technology’.

JUSTIN PAUL  (PEX/Playloop):

Justin Paul is an acclaimed DJ, producer and creator of the Playloop music brand. His success is attested to more than his DJ performances and producing; it is for his contribution to the global scene via Playloop and helping to empower The Philadelphia Experiment (PEX) outside and within the Burning Man (aka “Burner”) community. JP’s DJ sets are known for being musically eclectic, spiritual and somewhat unexpected. This is one of the many reasons JP is booked to play at some of the nations most elite clubs, festivals, and shows alongside the likes of Air, Bassnectar, Beats Antique, Deadmau5, LCD Soundsystem, Nick Warren, Orbital, Prodigy, Thievery Corporation and Zero 7 to name a few.

TERRELY (PEX/Funktion Radio):

Terreyl’s talents have created a powerful,

experimental and original style of music, a deadly,
dirty, jackin, funky tech meets electronic house.

Terreyl has been rocking dance floors from NY to LA and everywhere in

between with their infectious blend of driving tech-house and

groovy funk smashed into one of their marathon 4-hour sets.

With his hands in multiple remixes from a wide range of producers from the tech

heavy hands of Definitive Records Jan Van Lier to the massive Drum-Step sounds of

Gasm Recordings Mason & P5 and others including original tracks and a recent remix

of Gil Scott-Heron’s “On Coming From A Broken Home”.
