Since first bursting on to the scene in 2008, Breathe Carolina has struck an inimitable alchemy between electronic music and rock, vaulting them continually ahead of the curve and into a lane of their own. That hybrid transformed the group into a cross-genre sensation with their platinum-selling 2011 breakout single "Blackout" from Hell Is What You Make It, which garnered the band a Top 20 Top 40 hit, coverage from The New York Times, USA Today, a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and prime placement across MTV’s networks.
It’s follow-up Savages sees the unit once again treading boldly into fresh territory, delving heavier into the electronic dance world while staying true to their rock roots, a combination that sounds equally at home in a club, or lighting up packed fields at Warped Tour. Featuring guest vocals from pop artist Karmin, and rock frontmen Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria) and Tyler Carter (Issues), Savages solidifies the band’s unique ability to straddle multiple musical styles and blend it into a sound all their own, a sound that is as infectious as it is euphoric - and about to become the soundtrack to your summer.
Santa Barbara natives Ethan and Josie aka Candyland began producing their own original songs back in April of 2011. After becoming the first act to win back-to-back Beatport remix contests (Skrillex "Make it Bun Dem" & Bingo Players "Rattle") and racking up over 5 MILLION Soundcloud plays, they released their debut album "Bring the Rain" on SPINNIN RECORDS.Breathe Carolina's Website Candyland's Website

The Spazmatics Story: Or at least what they told us!
In the spring of 1983, physics professor Luis Stigwood of Alta Dena High in Thousand Oaks California, lost a debate over String Theory to an upstart pupil in front of the entire student body and faculty. As agreed to by both parties, the loser would have to do anything that the winner demanded, and the victorious prodigy demanded that Mr. Stigwood perform "She Blinded Me With Science" by Thomas Dolby during half-time at an upcoming state basketball championship game.
Having no musical background and desperate to not go down in total humiliation, Professor Stigwood tapped the genius of electronics teacher Eugene MeeGene, who had achieved international acclaim in 1981 for his invention of "robot" drums. When MeeGene (who was also the girls water polo coach at Alta Dena Middle School) explained that most of the music could be generated by computers, and that all he needed was a couple of decent musicians to fill in the holes, Stigwood was ecstatic. To round out the lineup, Stigwood brought in his brother, Milton on bass, and teacher's assistant, Shureman on guitar.
When the group took center court that evening, members of the hip elite began heckling them with jibes of "geek" and "nerd," while everyone else howled with laughter. But once they broke into the opening salvo of "Science," the nonbelievers were stunned by the group's authenticity of production, world class musicianship, and tight choreography. The performance came to a climax when Stigwood grabbed one of the cheerleaders and began doing the "Belinda" up and down the court with her in tow. When it was all over, the crowd rose in a standing ovation, and the Spazmatics were born.
FACT: From the creators of the World Famous Afrodisiacs comes the Spazmatics. All the awesome sounds, styles, and way cool dance steps from the 1980's decade we'd love to forget. Complete with skinny ties, Brill Creamed hair, and horn-rimmed glasses, the Spazmatics recapture all the best of the worst. Outstanding musicianship combined with creative flair and style makes for an evening of pure energy and entertainment. So tonight we're gonna party like it's 1999; only it's not!Artist Website
