In todays dance music market, not many can boast collaborations with some of the most heavy hitting and consistently charted artists. The US DJ and producer, Dustin Hulton is known for not only working with the best: Deekline, Afrika Bambaata, Splack Pack, Sporty-O, Wizard and Ed Solo who are all operating at the absolute peak of their game. Yet anyone who has ever seen the club impact of Dustin Hulton's ridiculously catchy Rat Records booty banger Apple Bottom, produced alongside Deekline and featuring the unmistakable vocals of Atlanta's Sporty-O, will know that this is a man capable of placing some serious aces in DJs' wax packs.
Hulton has also worked with the likes of MC Flipside, DJ Fixx, Keith Mackenzie, Nikki Carabello, Baby Anne and Whiskey Pete, to name but a few. In terms of original tracks, he's dropped numbers on some of the most respected labels in independent dance music, including PBR, Caffeine Records, Illeven Eleven Recordings, Against the Grain and iBreaks. And when he's not killing it in the studio, he takes time to share his skills teaching the next generation via a prestigious advanced audio engineering at one of the US' most sought after universities for media arts.
Whether behind the decks or performing a full live show, Hulton is the man to throw down innovative and edgy jams that break new ground and smash up musical stereotypes (as well as bassbins). Watch him power up the low-end and rock the discotech.

Salt Lake City, Utah
As the most sought after female DJ in Utah, TinkFu has shattered the stereotype that male DJs reign supreme. This phenomenal power house femme is taking the throne in a city where female DJs are outnumbered 20 to 1. She has planted her feet in front of the decks with no indication of being knocked down!
TINKFU has made major impact in the 'City of Salt' as she currently owns the longest running Thursday night weekly residency (Thumpin' Thursdays) held at a major local club in Salt Lake City called The W Lounge, and has been a constant headliner at most Salt Lake City electronic music events. This female powerhouse has placed her name along side the industry's most recognizable DJs/acts, such as R.I.T.M, The Crystal Method, Krafty Kuts, Craze, Deekline & Wizard, Andy C, Noisia, Skream, Benga, Hybrid, Keith MacKenzie, Paul Van Dyk, Benny Benassi, Jackal & Hyde, DJ Rap, Richard Vission, Baby Anne, Icey, Faust & Shortee, Aphrodite, Jen Lasher, Dieselboy,... the list goes on and on. Not to mention, she co-headlined an event for the annual Winter Music Conference 05' in Miami with Annalyze and Reid Speed, was 1 out of 400 DJ submissions (world wide) chosen to perform as an 'Emerging Artist' at the very first Vegas Music Conference held in September 2006, rocked the main stage at the 2008 premier WMC 08' event; Future Sound Of Breaks, was asked to join the FSOB crew, and played again at the 2009 FSOB Miami showcase, and also was chosen to play at the WMC 2010 TECHNOSLUTS massive.
TINKFU's high energy, crowd-controlling performance creates an atmosphere that is unexplainable. At this pace, she is well on her way to becoming an internationally known DJ.
