Sonny Moore, known as Skrillex, is a record producer, DJ, musician, singer and songwriter from Los Angeles who has won 8 Grammy Awards, has been named Electronic Dance Artist of the Year by MTV and holds the record for the most Grammys won by an electronic artist. The creative giant began his career as a teenage skater joining the iconic post-hardcore band From First To Last in 2004 as lead singer, making two albums with the group before embarking on his solo career at just 19 years old. In 2009, he started distributing his EP under the name Skrillex for free on Myspace. In 2010, the Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites EP marked Skrillex's explosion on the world stage, soon followed by Grammys and sold-out venues. His collaborations include Justin Bieber, FKA Twigs, Kanye West, MIA, Ty Dolla $ign, Kid Cudi, Boys Noize, Camila Cabello, A$AP Rocky and many others. Jack Ü, his project with Diplo, saw the album of the same name reach first place in the United States dance charts, with the track “Where Are Ü Now” ft Justin Bieber becoming 4 times platinum. Skrillex teamed up with Bieber again for the 8-time platinum track 'Sorry', which debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100. His label, OWSLA, has launched the careers of some of the most powerful names in electronic music, including Marshmello, Zedd, Porter Robinson and Mija. Skrillex changed music and has been involved in creating music between Los Angeles and Japan for the last 3 years, which will continue to influence the music scene.

Through his time in the studio and on the streets, Jamie Roberts has dedicated the last decade to developing his alias, Blawan, and in the process has created a universe within techno music that is all his own. Roberts grew up in Barnsley, UK, and from a young age he was outlining his musical journey as a drummer, a relic of the past that won't surprise anyone familiar with his productions. In fact, his discography like Blawan illuminates a natural fluidity for the rhythm, be it straight, strongly syncopated or oscillating between the two. His other aliases, Kilner and Bored Young Adults, as well as his collaborations with Pariah as Karenn and with Surgeon as Trade, have provided additional space for experimentation. Having released through a wide range of pulsating black minimalism, juvenile two-step vocal cuts, and groovy and clever techno, the labels Roberts has worked with are appropriate: Hessle Audio, R&S, Clone's Basement Series, Hinge Finger and Black Sun like Blawan, as well as The Trilogy Tapes and Avian under his other solo names. Roberts' label, TERNESC, was founded in 2015 and has been the home for his last five releases as Blawan. Having moved to Berlin in 2015, his analog-driven studio production and formidable live sets have pushed Roberts in new and interesting directions, even while maintaining an expert command of the more traditional dance floor environments behind the plates. His latest work, the full album Wet Will Always Dry, was released in June 2018. It's a turning point in Roberts' discipline of auditory alchemy and an ambitious and nuanced techno tour de force for fans following his ever-exploratory career.
