Audiology, miEVENT & OUSA present
P-Money is New Zealand’s most renowned Producer and DJ. His incredible talents in the studio and behind the decks have made him a household name in NZ and an artist to watch internationally.
Only a handful of DJs can create both a great live mix and produce amazing original songs, move a dancefloor in the smallest club and knock out main-stage festival sets of legendary proportions. When you shift your lens towards the South Pacific I’d dare say there is only one man who fits the description. P-Money, the Papakura born DJ and Record Producer, is an iconic figure of the New Zealand music scene and for very good reason.
P-Money’s musical pedigree is certified with a string of Number One hits and Platinum selling albums to his credit. A true ambassador of NZ Music he co-wrote and produced five of the biggest New Zealand singles of the past decade; “Not Many”, “Stand Up”, & “Stop The Music ft Scribe”, “Keep On Callin ft Akon” and “Everything ft Vince Harder”. The latter of which broke through to UK airwaves on BBC1 and was dubbed Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record in the World.
When he’s not controlling crowds in some of the biggest clubs across the globe, Sikdope spends his days in the studio coming up with new ways to revolutionize the scene. This Polish producer started at a young age. Attending one of the top music schools in Poland for more than 9 years has allowed Sikdope to become one of the most versatile producers in the game. From Bass, to House, to Trap, this DJ/Producer has helped pioneer the sound of electronic dance music today.
Sikdope has gained support and recognition from the biggest names in the Industry: Blasterjaxx, Borgore, Carnage, Chuckie, Dillon Francis, DVBBS, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike, DJ Snake, Laidback Luke, Nervo, Nicky Romero, R3HAB, Skrillex, Skream, Steve Aoki, W&W, Tiesto to name a few.
State of Mind (NZ)
Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, State of Mind is the duo of Stu Maxwell and Patrick Hawkins. They formed in 2005 and have released 4 studio albums and 1 live album.
The list of labels worked with reads like a who’s who of drum and bass. It includes Blackout, BSE, Universal, Uprising, Shotgun, Project 51, Viper, Subtitles, Eatbrain, FATE, Citrus, Bad Company, 31 Records, CIA and more.
State of Mind is now signed to Black Sun Empire’s flagship ‘Blackout’ Label.
Not happy being mere producers State of Mind also run their own label SOM Music. With over 30 releases from a wide range of global artists SOM Music is regarded as a label at the forefront of harder d'n'b.
Spenda C (Australia)
Spenda C is an OG in the Australian Bass music scene. Nina Las Vegas called him "one of the hardest working DJs going around" and you know she knows her shit!
Holding down a 10 year residency at infamous Sydney club Chinese Laundry, Spenda knows how to control a sweaty mess of bass heads. No stranger to the festy circuit either Spenda gets the trap arms flying at Sterosonic, Field Day, Future Music, Breakfest, Good Vibrations and heaps more.
Spenda is not only a kick ass DJ but a pretty fucking good producer as well. Just ask Major Lazer, Diplo, Carnage and Grandtheft, they all drop his shit on the reg.
Gentlemen's Club: Soloman, Coffi, & 50 Carrot (UK)
Ever since the Gentlemen’s Club formed in 2013, the UK-based trio have proved unstoppable, breathing new life into the global dubstep and bass scene with edgy hip-hop and grime influenced bangers.
Respectively Coffi (Lewis Pittham), Soloman (Saul Mountford) & 50 Carrot (Amani Haskins) developed their own unique low-end heavy styles, now fused together under the household name – Gentlemen’s Club. Their influence spans several successful years of international tours, viral VIPs, and massive remixes. Building on the collective’s widespread appeal, they've steadily built their empire in the form of a GC imprint and sought after apparel line.
Poised to take over the world, you won’t find another more dedicated bass squad with their unforgettably swagged out live sets and heavyweight barrier breaking beats.
