Currently based in Los Angeles, CRAY (Cheney Ray) is a DJ, producer, singer and gamer. Performing as an opener on Anna Lunoe’s HyperHouse Tour in 2016 gave CRAY the momentum needed to throw herself fully into her music career. Since then, her incredibly energetic sets have earned her a spot on festivals such as HARD Summer, Audiotistic and Electric Zoo. In 2018, CRAY kicked off the year touring through Japan alongside Skrillex, followed by an Australian headline tour. Musically inspired by her love for classical jazz and swing artists like Frank Sinatra and Billie Holiday, CRAY brings a refreshing perspective to the electronic scene. Her inventive records allow her to avoid labels and continually reinvent her sound, resulting in a fan base that spans the indie electronic, pop and dance genres. On her latest single “Peaches,” she added her own vocals into the mix, another dimension that sets her apart and she recently lent her remix skills toMaroon 5’s “Girls Like You Featuring Cardi B.”

Though young at 23 years of age, REZZ is anything but an amateur. Producing state of the art, genre-bending works, while striking a sharp balance between bass heavy and minimal tech compositions, she oozes originality and stands shoulder to shoulder with the very best in the electronic music scene. With a handful of projects now under her belt, “Space Mom” returned this August with CERTAIN KIND OF MAGIC, her new artist album for mau5trap. With an arsenal of new music and sold-out shows plus recent headlining slots at Coachella (Sahara tent) and Movement, REZZ is taking big steps forward. CERTAIN KIND OF MAGIC captures her ever-evolving and idiosyncratic electro sound. On this turn, in addition to her solo tracks she taps newcomers such as 1788-L, Deathpact, Kotek, 13 and Fytch, adding to the battery of her menacing productions.

Coming straight out of South East London, rising multi-genre, multifaceted producer TroyBoi goes against the grain when it comes to his music. Since skyrocketing onto the scene in 2013, TroyBoi, née Troy Henry, left his distinguished mark on the music world on the strength of his unique original productions which blend multicultural influences and hip-hop finesse built atop versatile, hook-laced, trap-infused beats as heard on his 2017 debut album Left Is Right. This spring, rising sensation Billie Eilish tapped TroyBoi for a special remix of “My Boi.” Fans were treated to a surprise recently, when, during his second appearance at Coachella, TroyBoi released a new six-track EP V!BEZ via T dot Music. “I’ve been exploring and creating various types of tracks, all with different V!BES to them,” says TroyBoi. “Since I ended up making so many different tracks, I struggled choosing which song I wanted to release first, so instead of trickling songs out one by one, I thought it made sense for me to release a few all at once.”
TroyBoi adds: “V!BEZ for everyone. ‘Sunset In Costa Rica’ was made on my hotel balcony in Costa Rica overlooking one of the most beautiful sunsets I’ve ever seen. ‘Wickedest Bounce’–I love music from the 80’s (I’m an 80’s baby) and wanted to put my spin on that era’s sound with a combination of elements. ‘HEY BO!’ & ‘No Games’ are for the bass heads. ‘Spooky’ feat my boy David Stewart is a song that we’ve both been dying to release for ages. Sexy V!BEZ. In a nutshell, I hope everyone enjoys all the eclectic V!BEZ on this ep. Much love.”
