Debuting at #30 in the DJ Mag Top 100 poll, this next artist became the youngest ‘Highest New Entry’ to ever grace the peculiarly weighted, but somewhat definitive poll regarding disc jockeying talent. Known for his signature driving bass lines, enchanting melodies and highly charged drops, Jordy van Egmond has seamlessly made the transition from bedroom composer to renowned international DJ/Producer. Dyro has surpassed any expectations with his rapid ascent into the highly coveted upper echelons of the dance music scene.
Previously garnering support from the likes of the most popular DJs in the world (including: Hardwell, Laidback Luke, and Dada Life), Dyro was unanimously selected as the group’s ‘Breakthrough Artist of 2012.’ With such a lofty title placed on his forehead, we believe that so far, the 21 year old star has effectively matched the highly esteemed praise with consistent releases and captivating live sets. The success of this swiftly rising talent just goes to show you that anything is possible. One day your sitting at your home computer, ripping the stems of your favorite producers to remix, the next, you’re sitting down in million dollar studios and collaborating with the very same musicians you had once idolized. Such was the case for young Dyro as Hardwell quickly sniffed out his prospective talents and slapped a Revealed Recording label on Jordy’s releases.
At this point in time, with all that has been said and done regarding this next producers short but enchanting career, it’s no longer a shock when Dyro delivers tunes with impeccable standards again and again. He is one of they very few DJs that can boast a production portfolio overflowing with quality and quantity. As Hardwell once put it, “Dyro is in my opinion, the world’s biggest up and coming DJ”. Maybe a little bias considering the man is paying for Dyro’s music, but what do I know. A lot, actually.
We believe Dyro to be a particularly special “must see” artist at this years Spring Awakening Music Festival because there is nothing more authentic than a DJ in the middle of actualizing their very own dreams.
Justin Blau, the name sounds familiar doesn’t it?
Better known by his stage name, 3LAU, this young and talented producer has grown into his own version of an icon. Justin represents a class of up and coming musicians ready to etch their name in the electronic music history books. He became enthralled with music at a young age, first teaching himself to play piano, guitar and drums. With a knack for success through his diligent work ethic and a keen dedication to his craft, 3LAU went from compiling mainstream mash-ups for DJs to creating some of the freshest tunes we’ve heard so far in 2014. Gaining creative insight from inspirations like Sigur Ros and Radiohead, Justin classifies his sound as beautifully melodic – an emotional journey through time and space.
A few months back, Justin provided the world with one of the finest sets in recent memory at the ever prolific Ultra Music Festival. Ever since that day, his name has been at the top of our radar list, and the anticipation for his next release goes unparalleled.

You all know Garfield right? The indolent feline created by Jim Davis who happened to HATE Mondays and LOVE lasagna.
Oh right, ya’ll can’t immediately respond to my inquires can you?
Jesus, this needs to stop. I get you and the voices in my head confused all the time, always telling me to “kill whitey.”
I digress, back to the matter at hand. I bet you didn’t know which day of the week Garfield hated second most?
Bingo. You got it, January…I mean Tuesday.
See, it all comes full-circle eventually. You just have to give me some time.
We’ve taken it upon ourselves to craft a Tuesday evening playlist that is perfectly apt for that hellish car ride home in traffic. It’s a beautiful day in Chicago tonight. Enjoy it with the windows down and breeze blowing through your hair as you cruise down LSD blasting these tunes.
