MARSHMELLO:

Marshmello’s star continues to rise as the famously masked artist breaks boundaries across the industry. With chart-topping singles and collaborations with the likes of Bastille, Selena Gomez, Migos, Khalid, Logic, and more, Marshmello has clocked a staggering 2+ billion streams across Spotify alone and with over 40 million monthly listeners on the platform, he’s the 14th most streamed artist in the world on Spotify.

His smash hit single “Happier” with Bastille topped the charts around the world, with cumulative streams nearing one billion. Certified 5x Platinum in the U.S., “Happier” held the No. 1 position for three consecutive weeks on Billboard‘s BDS and Mediabase/Top 40 Radio Airplay chart. The song also has also topped Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Hot 100 chart for 49 weeks.  “Happier” holds the record for longest time at #1 on the Dance chart, breaking the record for longest time at #1 on any Billboard chart.

DABABY:

Beginning in 2015, the Charlotte, North Carolina rapper ambushed the music industry with constant mixtape releases, making waves with tracks like 2016’s “Light Show” as well as performances at South by Southwest in 2015 and 2017. His style grew progressively harder and more aggressive as his discography expanded, with melodic and lighthearted flows becoming more fluid by 2018’s Blank Blank mixtape.

DaBaby’s regional acclaim and endless hustle led to a major-label deal in 2019 when he signed on with Interscope. The label quickly released the Billboard 200 Top Ten hit “Baby on Baby” in March of that year, a sharply produced full-length that was preceded by increasingly surreal videos for singles “Suge” and “Walker, Texas Ranger.” After a string of features, DaBaby returned to solo work and released his sophomore album, KIRK. Featuring major-label contributions from the likes of Nicki Minaj, Chance the Rapper, and Migos, the album entered the Billboard 200 at number one upon release. DaBaby received two Grammy nominations for “Suge,” – Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance.

QUINN XCII:

With his ability to seamlessly blur the lines between pop, electronic, hip-hop, and soul music, Quinn XCII has quickly paved his own lane with his unique sound. Quinn XCII’s 2017 debut album The Story of Us peaked at #6 on iTunes’ Pop Chart and is led by his standout single “Straightjacket,” which was named SoundCloud’s “Song of the Month” and has accumulated more than 80 million streams on Spotify (where he also has over 800 million total catalogue streams).

In 2019, Quinn released his sophomore album From Michigan With Love, and embarked on his biggest world tour to date to support the project. In the Spring he featured on “Love Me Less” with singer/songwriter MAX, which reached #17 at Top 40 Radio and was performed on Jimmy Kimmel, The Today Show, and more. He followed the summer hit up with “Stacy”, the first single off his forthcoming album, releasing in the Spring of 2020.

DJ DIESEL:

Shaquille O’Neal is one of the most dominant basketball players in NBA history and is now also one of the greatest entertainers on earth. At 7’1″ and 325 pounds, Shaq’s larger-than-life personality and powerful athleticism have resulted in worldwide admiration and one of the most passionate fan bases in sports and entertainment. The Hall of Famer first discovered electronic dance music after crashing the festival TomorrowWorld in 2014, a milestone event that changed his life forever after being exposed to DJ’s such as Steve Aoki and Skrillex.

SHAQ aka DJ Diesel’s dance music debut was at TomorrowWorld 2015, as the Hall of Famer took the stage for the first time in front of tens of thousands of fans mixing the best of Trap, EDM, and Hip-Hop. From there DJ Diesel’s career was born as he cemented the title of ‘the biggest DJ in the world.’ DJ Diesel recently embarked on a 15+ date ‘Summer of SHAQ’ tour, has graced main stages around the globe from Tomorrowland, Lost Lands, Life in Color, and even launched his own festival series – Shaq’s Fun House.

TWO FRIENDS:

Matt Halper and Eli Sones, the young masterminds behind Two Friends, have quickly grown from high school bedroom producers to one of the most promising dance-pop acts of 2020. Known for their viral remixes of classics such as “Mr. Brightside” and “I Miss You”, the millions of streams on their “Best Of Soundcloud” award-winning Big Bootie Mixes, original offerings such as “Dollar Menu”, “Take It Off” and “Emily”, and a knack for creative social media antics, the duo has become a staple of the American electronic scene.

Kicking off their musical journey during their senior year of high school in 2011, Matt & Eli’s influence quickly spread beyond the online sphere, attracting the spotlight on radio and stages across the country. Drawing upon a wide variety of live instrumentation to create a truly multi-faceted sound with every release, they continue to prove & push their versatile songwriting and production as far as it can go. After selling out another tour in early 2019 at venues including Washington DC’s Echostage, LA’s Fonda Theatre, Chicago’s Concord Music Hall, two shows at NYC’s Irving Plaza, and several more, the boys show no signs of slowing down.

DJ PAULY D:

DJ Pauly D is recognized for his musical talent, as well as his reality star status on MTV’s highest rated show, “Jersey Shore”. In December 2011, rapper and mogul 50 Cent signed Pauly to his record label, G-Note records, to release new material showcasing Pauly’s true craft. Pauly received more recognition being voted the #8 Best DJ in America in 2010 and was nominated again in 2011. Pauly was also named one of VIBE Magazine’s “Top 6 DJs Who Rocked 2011,” but his notoriety did not come overnight. At the age of 16, long before his “Jersey Shore” fame, Pauly started as a DJ and that is where his passion remains. In September 2011, Pauly DJ’ed for the iHeartRadio Music Festival alongside some of the biggest names in the music industry. In Summer 2011, Pauly joined the iconic Britney Spears on select dates of her Femme Fatale Tour, alongside Britney and Nicki Minaj. Pauly has spent years honing his skills to fine art. His eclectic track selection, unique style and infectious personality captivate crowds around the globe. Pauly is now one of the most sought after DJs in the world.

GATTÜSO:

New York City-based DJ, producer and remixer GATTÜSO (AKA Reem Taoz), is quickly making a name for himself on the global dance music scene. He hit the ground running in summer 2018 with his first original production “Who We Are,” and in just over a year’s time he signed an exclusive record deal with legendary dance music label Ultra Music. Appearing 2x’s on Billboard Dance Radio chart, his songs have been streamed over 50 million times on Spotify and Apple Music, released on Armada, Enhanced Music, Spinnin Records, and his own label TNT Records, and have also been regularly featured on the top editorial playlists. He has received strong support for his remixes for Sam Feldt and R3HAB, who’s hit “Lullaby” with Mike Williams, propelled GATTÜSO to the cover of Spotify’s influential “Mint” playlist. GATTÜSO’s collaboration with Disco Killerz, “Million Things,” topped the Billboard Dance Radio Airplay and Mediabase charts, was the #1 EDM song of the week on Music Choice and named a Sirius XM “BPM Breaker.” Capitalizing on a great upward momentum, his follow up “When In Rome” has again risen to the top of the charts.
