PSYKO PUNKZ - Utrecht, Holland
[Circle Talent Agency // Platinum Agency // Shadow Mask Music]
In Europe, Psyko Punkz (known individually as Sven Sieperda and Wietse Amersfoort) need no introduction. The duo are among the top ‘Hardstyle’ purveyors across the Atlantic and are increasingly popular worldwide, thanks to their unique and hard-hitting take on the sub-genre of EDM that shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. “We’re pretty mainstream with a little raw edge on the top of it,” explains Wietse regarding Psyko Punkz’s explosive sound that has won over countless fans since they first burst onto the scene in 2008. “It’s been pretty crazy, but great,” the producer adds regarding the rise of the duo worldwide. Few could have anticipated what was in store for the Dutch duo when the two first met by chance at a party and discovered that they shared a mutual love and appreciation for electronic music, and more specifically, the Hardstyle genre. Upon joining forces, the two were quickly signed to the Belgian label, Dirty Workz, and they began performing live DJ sets at some of the largest and most well-known events in the EU, including Tomorrowland (where they will play for the fourth year in a row this summer), Qlimax, Hardbass, Decibel, Defqon.1 (NL and AUS) and Germany’s Nature One.
Truly Hardstyle in sound, image and lifestyle, Psyko Punkz’s reputation for energetic live sets has even won them shows far away from Europe, including stops across the U.S., Australia, Korea and the United Kingdom. “Our performance is always really energetic,” says Wietse, who calls Utrecht home. “Things can get crazy,” the Dutchman laughs regarding the growing and loyal fan base that turns up at live gigs, and outside observers have noticed just how many fans have latched onto the twosome, over the past three years especially. Tracks such as their “Psyko Foundation” and “Bass Boom” have won them an actual army of followers, nicknamed Psyko Soldiers. “Our fans are really dedicated….we have loads of fans with Psyko Punkz tattoos” adds Wietse.

Supported By: Tiesto, Hardwell, Nicky Romero, Steve Aoki, W&W, David Guetta & many more!
18 year old East Coast superstars Anthony Riggi and James Piros, AKA Riggi & Piros, have been making New Jersey proud while simultaneously taking the Big Room scene by storm with their larger than life sounds and massive remixes.
Not wasting any time getting their careers started, the duo started DJing at just 16, and got into production at 17. After only a year of production they had their first Beatport/iTunes release with Clockwork’s “Surge” (Riggi & Piros remix) that charted in the Beatport Top 20, an accomplishment that takes others years to achieve. If anyone had doubts as to whether these two up-and-comers could achieve success in this industry, they were quickly put to bed in 2013. In that year the duo saw huge releases on Buygore Records including their breakout original mix “Taboo”, as well as their remix of Borgore, Waka Flocka Flame, & Paige’s hit “Wild Out” which garnered a spot on the remix EP released by Dim Mak Records.
With well-earned support from superstar acts like Hardwell, Tiesto, Nicky Romero, W&W, David Guetta, Borgore, Nervo, Porter Robinson, R3hab, Martin Garrix, and more, Riggi & Piros are definitely a duo that everyone is going to be talking about in 2014. Keep an eye and ear out for these two East Coast champions, because they’ll be making a lot of noise in the near future.

INTEGRITY VS SRZ BZNZ
[Hardmind, NYCRavers, Kikwear]
Integrity says "I have a giant passion for rave culture. I've seen the very top of the mountain, the deepest pits of despair, and everything in between since I began this journey. I have been in involved in rave culture as a DJ, event producer, and rave culture advocate for over 10 years. For those unfamiliar with me, my style of DJing is best described as hard and aggressive, yet deep and complex. While my live DJ sets and mixes have varied greatly from hard trance, acid techno, straight techno, psy trance, and more, all feature dark, driving, and layered rhythms that are influenced by the pioneering rave producers and DJs that came before me. Please don't define me as a psy trance, hard house, or techno DJ. I am a rave DJ who strives to incorporate the best examples of all aggressive genres into my sets and mixes. Over the past decade, I've been an active participant in all areas of rave culture including DJing, original music production, event production and consultation, dance, and general advocacy. To date, I have performed at over 200 events in 12 states and Canada. I have produced and/or collaborated to produce over 25 events that have included such notable events as the Saturday Morning Cartunes series, The Time Machine, and Collaborate. Today, I primarily focus on DJing, original music production, and event consultation to ensure rave culture continues to evolve and advance in a productive and positive direction."
