Growing up on a goat farm in the desert of Arizona might not be considered the typical American upbringing for the next big DJ and producer, but then again Ghastly isn’t your typical American artist. Many have described the genre bending musician as a partially insane young man with a dark sense of humor. Politely abominable and casually destructive, he wields the catch phrase “born to die” as a mantra to his chaotic lifestyle. His sets have been heralded as “Energetic and eclectic live performances which are sometimes followed by odd speeches about the abnormalities of life, regretful sexual encounters, and well cooked food.” With such a diverse personality and rapport for his fans, it’s clear that Ghastly has one thing on his mind, and that's to change the world.
After entering the music scene and practicing his talents with touring metal bands such as The Irish Front, David Lee Crow finally found his calling with dance music, and it inspired him to pack up and head to Venice Beach, California to live out of his van and pursue a new career in bass-heavy music. It didn’t take long for him to find his place in the scene, as Ghastly quickly claimed himself a position as Bassrush Resident DJ at Exchange LA, and has also secured a number of releases on chart-topping labels such as OWSLA, Buygore, and Dim Mak to name a few.
Ghastly's approachable yet hard-hitting style ushers a forward-thinking dynamic that is not often seen in today’s saturated scene, and his solo productions and collaborations present an unequivocal level of determination and finesse that fuses multiple styles together. Uniquely creating hybrid blends of house, trap, and dubstep into a pot-pourri of bass, the young producer definitively pushes the boundaries of the entire EDM scene today, and a handful of the industry’s finest have recognized his potential including Skrillex, Diplo, Dillon Francis, Tchami, DJ Snake, Datsik, Borgore, Zomboy, and Zeds Dead. With slew of mentally-stimulating originals and physically-altering collaborations under his belt, such as his original “Miami Connection” with Jauz and single “Crank It” with Mija & Lil Jon, it’s safe to say that Ghastly is on a mission to redefine dance music for all.Artist Website Purchase Tickets Online

If you’ve seen the video on YouTube, you can’t help but marvel at the sight of over 100,000 fans singing along to “Viking Death March,” the first track released to the public from Billy Talent’s fourth album, Dead Silence. Watching the mass celebration of this song is powerful enough but the fact that the track had only been released days before the band hit the stage at the Rock Am Ring festival in Germany is testament to the loyalty of the band’s fans around the world.
Dead Silence is the follow up to Billy Talent I, II and III and was recorded in three different studios in Toronto, Vancouver and Los Angeles. The album was produced by Billy Talent guitarist Ian D’Sa and is perfect proof for Billy Talent’s inner strength, their focus and hard work ethic; character traits that have turned them into one of the most successful international rock acts of the past decade. Being together for almost 20 years and having travelled thousands of miles in vans, buses and planes turned the four piece not just into a band, but into a family — a tight brotherhood that will challenge and tackle any obstacle in front of them. Equipped with countless awards (such as multiple MuchMusic Awards, Juno Awards, MTV Awards and even two of those rare German Echo Awards) and having played the biggest festival stages worldwide, Billy Talent are ready to take on their next mission: to complete their world domination.Artist Website Purchase Tickets Online
