Featuring Special Guests:

DROOG • Culprit | Crosstown Rebels | Los Angeles

Droog has steadily built a reputation as one of the leading purveyors of forward thinking dance music in Los Angeles & beyond. The collective have become known for their respected parties that through the years have featured leading international house & techno talent, including Magda, Jamie Jones, Art Department, Steve Bug, My Favorite Robot, Martin Buttrich, Dixon, The Martinez Brothers, Visionquest, Nicolas Jaar, Dyed Soundorom, Shonky and many more.

In 2009 the trio made a leap into a new territory by launching LA-based record label, Culprit, which has built steady momentum with successful releases from Matt Tolfrey & Inxec, Hot Natured, Lee Foss, SECT (Soul Clap, Tanner Ross & Sergio Santos), Subb-an, M A N I K, and many others, joining the ranks of the leaders of the new school of underground dance music. More recently the Los Angeles collective has been focusing on production work, with original material for Crosstown Rebels. Nestled at the foot of the Hollywood Hills, where grime and glitz collide, Culprit delivers a new context for dance music, one born from the dream-chasing guilt-ridden landscape of the City of Angels. Check out Culprit LA’s youtube channel for videos from their Culprit Sessions on the rooftop of The Standard hotel in Los Angeles… these guys know how to party!www.youtube.com/technodroog

In October 2005 he founded Shines Records which later on spawned another label Plusgroove records, putting out favourites like Sunrise -Genetix Ft. Shanchoy and Do with You – Suges ft Limore, along with many others. While busy in the studio & DJing at downtown clubs, Gene also became a programmer for the now defunct CKLN.88.1 FM in 1993, DJing on and producing Vibes N’ Vinyl, which aired every Friday night/Saturday morning on the same station for 16 years. Most recently Gene has done remixes and production for artists Deep Xcape, Monocles and Slezz, Chezere, David Brown, Wayne Tennant, Dana Byrd, Tantra Zawadi, and Nuno Silva for releases on Mixed Signals Music, Shines Records, Smooth Agent Records and EXIT.FM.

NUNO SILVA (aka RickToxic) • EXIT.FM | Toronto

Celebrating his debut release, Paper Stars EP, on EXIT.FM! After releases with Furious and Mikita Skyy, Nuno Silva steps up for his debut on EXIT.FM in the form of the Paper Stars EP. Nuno Silva brings over 15 years of experience backing this venture, which originally started with Drum n Bass in the late 90s. Bringing down the bpm a few notches and defying strict sub-genre classification, his brand of house music blends elements of tech with deep and lush grooves, aimed at peak time dancefloors globally. The Paper Stars EP will be released on EXIT.FM on 12/12/12 and available online through iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and other online retailers. Go get it!


Made up of two Toronto-based artists that have been involved in Toronto’s electronic music scene since the mid 1990s, TDN is a concept a decade in the making. Music for DJs *and* the audience. Dance music fans can relate to. Brings them back, pushes them forward. Live arrangements and mixing, TDN pushes beyond genres and pigeonholes to a place far more satisfying. The future of dance.


Those who know SoulSource know the deal. High calibre selection paves the way for his unique mixing style, a cross between old-school layering and next-gen precision. The style? Solid percussion, lush instrumentation and moody vocals.
