Keys N Krates: From Toronto, the band combines live-insturmentation, turntablism and live sampling to not only reinterpret but also reinvent existing music of all genres right before your very eyes. Witht he remix culture these days being dominated by artists behind laptops, Keys N Krates are changing the game by bringing a refreshing live, hands-on approach, to the burgeoning scene of remixing. With the hard-hitting Adam Tune on the drums, World Champion DJ Jr-Flo behind the turntables, and the ever-soulful Matisse on the keys, this Canadian trio is single handedly "Re-Inventing the Remix."

In early 2009 all their hard work began to pay off when the talented group were featured in URB Magazine's "Next 100" issue, joining acts such as Passion Pit, Drake, and more. Without skipping a beat the band hit the road last year iwth a vengeance, playing over 15- shows nationally and internationally while also releasing an URB sponsored remix-tape and video entitled "Live Remixing 101" in the winter of 2009. Since then, they have received numerous features and write-ups from both print and online publications alike. Recently they've also shared the stage with artists like Kid Cudi, Steve Aoki, Questlove, and Timbaland, while continuing to tour all over the world spreading their influential remixes to the masses. In addition to the stage, Keys n Krates has also been diligently working in the studio to craft their next mix-tape along with their first studio album of original tracks. Needless to say, this is just the beginning for Keys N Krates so be sure to keep an eye out and an ear open, you'll thank us later.

Alvin Risk: Singer, songwriter, remixer and producer Alvin Risk from Washington DC

2 chainz: Tauheed Epps, better known by his stage name 2 Chainz (formerly Tity Boi), is an American hip hop recording artist from College Park, Georgia. He was first known for being one-half of the southern hip hop duo Playaz Circle, alongside his longtime friend and fellow rapper, Earl "Dolla Boy" Conyers.

2 Chainz embarked on a solo career in 2012, when he released Based on a T.R.U. Story, which featured the breakout single, "Birthday Song". The album quickly went Goldand was promoted by collaborations with artists like Kanye West, Ciara, and Lil' Wayne.

The rapper followed that up with his sophomore album, B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time. While the album didn't match the fantastic commercial success of his previous album, it fared better with critics, who marked a more mature, professional progression in 2 Chainz's style.

TJR: He's worked with Rock icons like Neil Young, He's made the opening ballot for Album of the Year and Song of the Year for the 2009 Grammys, He's been a best artist nominee in the OC Music Awards for best roots/rock artist.

In a world of pre-manufactured acts, TJR offers a new alternative. One based in the foundation of its roots but with its eye to the future.

TJR mixes a passion for roots and rock music to create his own blend of music that some have labeled as "Neo Classic Rock / Alternative Blues / and Rock Americana”.

His 3 CDs have received international airplay and strong reviews for both his songwriting and his virtuoso guitar playing and he recently concluded his first tour of Europe.

Alongside recording and releasing his own songs, TJR continues to do studio work with other artists. This has included recording sessions with icons like Neil Young and acclaimed singer songwriters like Michael Ubaldini.

His live shows are a must see....The Vegas Weekly says "TJR Cooks like a Texas barbecue in the middle of July"! Live magazine called TJR. "The new Reverend of Rock’n’Roll"!

His latest CD has received notices for satirical songs like "Peace Love And Don't Trust MTV" and his mournful remake of the Outkast song "Hey Ya".

In his latest single "American Idol" (Available for free via the artists myspace page) TJR sings a little known truth about one of America's favorite shows.

TJR, as a solo player or with a full band, mixes passion for roots music with a modern instinct and a Rockin’ attitude.

From school age kids to Baby Boomers TJR bridges the generation gap with ease, by appealling to fans of all styles of music with creative remakes and dynamic original songs.
