=======JUSTIN MARTIN [SF | DIRTYBIRD]=======
Justin initially pricked the ears of the electronic music community in 2003 with his first record 'The Sad Piano' on Ben Watt's Buzzin' Fly label. Everyone in the electronic music food chain got involved, from the A list DJs like Derrick Carter and Pete Tong that were playing the track, to the international music press that were raving about it. It even translated to the German underground, with Poker Flat licensing it for Steve Bug's 'Bugnology' compilation. Like someone that goes bowling for the first time and gets five strikes and a turkey, Justin couldn't really have hoped for a better entrance.
Feeding off the energy of the San Francisco underground and mentored by fellow super producer Claude VonStroke, Justin was intrinsically involved with the development of dirtybird records, appearing on its first four releases. Justin was soon ready to take flight, releasing a string of solo EPs, which flaunted a very unique sound and garnered still more respect among fellow DJs and heavyweight's of the scene.
Music journalists typically describe Justin's sound as 'melodic and tough' with his music encapsulating both melody and emotional depth yet always with enough undeniable ass shaking properties to translate to the floor.
He remains as enthusiastic as ever to be involved in the scene. When recently questioned by Resident Advisor on what he'd be doing if he wasn't a DJ or dance music producer he just replied: "Wishing I was a DJ or music producer."
By all accounts, it's hard to tell him to wipe that smile off his face.
======= ARDALAN [IRAN | DIRTYBIRD]=======
Born in Tehran, Iran, Ardalan Noghre-Kar possesses a peculiar, fresh perspective on music genesis without even trying. His mixes, remixes and dubs are known for their sass, energy and wickedly wry samples that snap like a wet towel to the face, but his original tracks are where his efforts shine, like those released with Justin Martin-"Mr. Spock," a 2010 party anthem charted by Diplo and Jesse Rose, and "Lezgo," charted by Dog Blood (Skrillex and Boyz Noise)-and those soon-to-be-released on his own EP with Dirtybird. It's no wonder he's been given the nod by everyone from Papa Dirtybird himself (Claude Von Stroke) and A-Trak to those who are charting his remixes, like Maya Jane Coles, Audiojack, and Riva Starr, the last of whom he has an upcoming remix for to be released on Snatch.

=======DMT [YEG | NIGHT VISION]=======
DMT began as Dan, Malc, & Trevor - three cynical young lads brought together by mutual love of dance music. Though Dan's departure to law school has left the group MT (haha, pun, get it?), he remains a significant influence on the DMT aesthetic. Their strength, they believe, is derived from a shared passion for endlessly digging and searching for the newest, freshest sounds--sounds which the boys are all too eager to share as the hosts of Night Vision Music's monthly podcast. Always enemies of complacency, DMT strive to be at the musical forefront for every show.
=======Shaedes [YEG | NIGHT VISION]=======
Formed in early 2014, Shaedes is the musical brainchild of Edmonton-based producers Gavin Delainey and Michael Mannerow. Brought together by their mutual affinity for bass driven music, the Alberta duo made their mark on the local scene with their debut EP “The Middle”, released on Night Vision Music. 'The Middle” draws influence from both west coast bass culture and the UK's ever-present garage scene. With a second EP on the horizon, as well as a dazzling remix of NVS's 'Breathe' already out on JG records, 2015 looks to be a breakout year for this duo.
