About the artists:
From the corner of the cyber realm comes . Combining hard techno grooves with dark evolving melodies, i_o brings together dance music’s finest. With influences ranging from deadmau5 to UMEK to techno’s most underground, i_o is poised to take over the world’s main stages with driving sets that grasp and don’t let go. 2018 saw an overwhelming amount of releases on mau5trap including his 2018 hit “Low” as well as his most recent Death by Techno EP. This yea also saw his follow-up collaboration with Tommy Trash on the label, including a remix of deadmau5’ “Imaginary Friends” remix via we are friends vol. 008. With co-signs from deadmau5, Above and Beyond, Armin Van Buren, Andrew Rayel, and Jauz, i_o is undoubtedly a rising force in the electronic soundscape.
Jordan Orcaz (P.K.A. No Mana) is a music producer and digital visual artist based in Orange County. The name “No Mana” initially started as a gaming joke, and inevitably became the theme of the entire project. In 2014, he took the alias promptly after attending a few of his first festivals. Since then, as the project presented itself with a hybrid electro, techno and progressive house style of electronic dance music, complemented with the theme of a pixelated bottle of a magic potion, the producer has built relationships with, or, by the least, gained attention from the likes of deadmau5, Zedd, Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Knife Party, and more. After independently publicizing himself with his free releases of his UP series, such relationships gave him leeway to opportunities such as: the debut label release of “Tell Me More”, a melodic production with a vocal collaboration with Jessica Ess, under deadmau5’s label mau5trap; releases and building relationships with Anjuna and Armada; and booking opportunities with notable festivals like EDC (Las Vegas, Orlando, and New York), Electric Zoo, Ultra, Beyond Wonderland, and many artists such as deadmau5, Feed Me, REZZ, Nero, and Jason Ross. While the artist remains loyal on mau5trap, he continued to release quasi-LP/EPs (6-track releases) such as Game Over, Above the Blue, Assorted Repetitions, and Melted Candy; and has collaborated with fellow label mates such as i_o and Fay with the release of “Bad Things”, and EDDIE with “Untitled Forever”. Despite his label loyalty, No Mana is not exclusive to the label and finds himself exploring the idea of working with other labels - one most notable being Anjuna as he released his single, “Panic” with Jessica Ess.
BlackGummy began as the brainchild of Los Angeles-based producer Iman Marouf. Marouf discovered the entity called “BlackGummy” in 2013 during a trip to the Middle East and Asia, and instantly formed a unique and inseparable bond with the alien-like idol. Since their first meeting, the producer and the entity have virtually conjoined into an indivisible whole, never leaving one another’s side. BlackGummy has an obsessive fascination for sound design and music production. He views his productions as checkpoints in a tireless quest to improve his mastery of this skill, routinely spending 15 hours a day honing his craft. In 2015, mau5trap discovered BlackGummy, and immediately recognized his unique prowess for production and sound design. Later that year, the label released BlackGummy’s first original — “Lullaby” — on mau5trap’s we are friends compilation, which Earmilk called a “can’t miss.” In February 2016, mau5trap released BlackGummy’s debut EP titled Singularity inspired by the concept of “technological singularity,” which Dancing Astronaut praised as “an intriguing artistic vision,” which “moves uninhibited from dark industrial to uplifting progressive, challenging the notion that producing one style necessitates ignoring the other.”
Over the course of the past four years, ATTLAS (Canadian musician Jeff Hartford) has become one of mau5trap’s most celebrated artists. Since his first mau5trap releases, ATTLAS has developed an enthusiastic fan base that awaits each release with bated breath. They particularly embraced his two hour-long Storyline mixes in 2016 which incorporate dialogue into music. Hartford realized he was regularly listening to DJ sets while he was simply cooking or doing other day-to-day activities and was much more immersed in them than he would be in a nightclub setting. ATTLAS looks to debuting his first album in fall 2019 – a body of work that’s been in progress for months. The album will “synthesize all the experiences and wandering paths that ATTLAS walks,” according to Hartford, bringing together heavier sounds and the emotive melodies he’s built his musical brand on. “[The album is me] trying to learn who I am and tell my story through music, which has given me so much and has been a home for me: a place to create, a shelter from the storm, and a launch pad into the greatest adventure of my life.”
Monstergetdown was born from a need to create not only new music, but new soundscapes altogether. He’s as much an artist as he is a shape-shifter– moving between genres seamlessly and taking to the streets to turn everyday sounds into groovy and atmospheric house and techno. Growing up in Boyle Heights, an area just east of downtown Los Angeles, Monstergetdown began producing amid his discovery of artists like Green Velvet, Surkin, deadmau5, Paco Osuna, Stimming and Tim Green in 2007. In the shadow of a city famous for artifice, he used his love of music to start building something real and raw – a mix of house and techno. With release of his mau5trap Blakmajik EP, his track “That’s That” garnered attention from Pete Tong who played it out on his BBC1 Radio show. As he continues to tour with deadmau5 in both the US and Europe, Monstergetdown continues to expand and create sounds that go far beyond his LA roots.
Classic modern techno is exactly what Sian represents. When you have interests ranging from entomology, cosmology and marine biology, to the social impact of the rave generation, you tend to make unusual art. Sian stands out as a little more bohemian than the average electronic talent. Born in Dublin, Ireland and raised in southern Spain, he chose early to drop out of normal society and engage in the extraordinary. Adhering more to the avant-garde side of club culture, his tracks show an otherworldly, slow and hypnotic slant on big speaker electronic music. Sian just released his first installment of his Ultraviolet EP series on mau5trap in May. Ultraviolet 2.0 is due out later this summer.
Austin, TX’ Sara Landry is a 25-year-old techno producer, DJ, sound designer and audio engineer. She prides herself on her Ableton chops and designs every detail of each track she writes, including all production, sound design, arranging, mixing, mastering, and vocals (where necessary). This approach has allowed Sara to rack up a notable list of accomplishments since the release of her first single in 2018; her music has been featured on multiple Spotify editorial playlists (Techno Bunker, Electronic Circus, Electronic Rising), and in 2019 she signed to mau5trap, where she released her first multi-track techno EP Wait this past May.
Edwin Beganovic, popularly known as EDDIE, is not shy to the music industry. With his most recent EP release Disembodied in May of this year on mau5trap, EDDIE is quickly becoming a favorite with support from deadmau5, Rezz, Kayzo, and many others. EDDIE is not confining himself to a genre; he’s been creating music that is a combination between techno and electro without any BPM restrictions. The combination of the different styles of music is what has propelled EDDIE to where he is today, with over a total of one million streams on his Bad Habits EP released in 2018. EDDIE is a name to be watching throughout 2019, with lots of new music coming out he isn’t going to stop any time soon.
The original cube debuted at Coachella April 2010, catapulting deadmau5 to become one of the most in-demand live acts int the world, with its follow-up Cube 2.1 arriving in 2017 at the launch of his “lots of shows in a row tour.” cubev3 - created by deadmau5 with Chris Schroeder of Chris Schroeder Productions, with technical design by Collyns Stenzel, and video content plus additional programming by deadmau5 - comes to life from Miami with the semitransparent look and deadmau5 custom content. Cubev3 will be the most complex production he has ever presented changing positions from 90 degrees to 45 degrees and rotate 360 degrees with mind bending content from deadmau5 & his custom touch designer system.
