:: Bitch Please ::
Bitch Please is the ghetto glam bastard child of Atlanta based producer Charles F. Moreland III. It was hatched in the backwoods of Kentucky, when Charles wanted to combine his love for Top 40 R&B/Hip Hop mixed with his passion of creating bass driven beats and remixes. Ranging between electro, dubstep, drum n bass and house music, Bitch Please has no problem changing up the tempo several times during a set. The idea of Bitch Please is simple: Stunner shades, champagne flowing, fur coats, and surprise remixes and vocal samples that bring back memories of drinking boxed wine in your car and getting hype to the new Master P track blasting on the radio.
Bitch Please has shared the stage with MiMOSA, Ana Sia, PANTyRAiD, NastyNasty, Flying Lotus, Dark Party, Treasure Fingers, Downlink, Gladkill, Eoto, Eliot Lipp, Nosaj Thing, Ooah (of The Glitch Mob),Bluetech Live Band, Virtual Boy, Evol Intent, Ott, The New Deal, Ep3, Daedelus, Boombox, as well as afterparties for Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, STS9, ect.
:: IRell ::
Rell started his career as a Dj in summer 2010. Spinning mainly dubstep, he gained attention by keeping the crowds hype and making his sets fun to watch as well as rage to. He is always high energy on stage, going just as hard if not harder than his bass hungry fans. Within months he was sharing the stage with acts such as Excision, Andy C, Downlink, Borgore, Dieselboy, Kraddy, Archnemesis, Mindelixir, Wick-it, Antiserum, Heroes x Villains, Crizzly, Charlie P, Trillbass, Bitch Please, and many others. iRell was recently invited to play at Dayglow, the world's largest paint party.

Since last year, iRell and others have turned Home Grown into a nationally recognized monster, including free promotions in international magazines and a partnership with national party monsters, Grassroots California. Headliners for Home Grown 2012 featured Evol Intent, Cyberoptics, Nerd Rage, Mantis, Mindelixir, Spankalicious, This is Art, and several others.
:: Moniker ::
Moniker is the brain-child of Knoxville-based producers Jacob Tullos and Brandon Reid, who have gained a reputation for their high-energy brand of bass music that has been described as "bass-heavy 8-bit funk." Moniker caught the attention of many quickly after their inception in early 2012 for their unique, audience-shaking performances, as well as the release of their debut EP, 'Terminal Velocity.' Moniker is proud to have shared the stage with artists such as Vaski, Cyberoptics, Archnemesis, Fast Nasty, SPEKTR, Spooky Jones, Futexture, Subsurgence, iRell, and FTW. As 2012 comes to a close, Moniker, recently added to the label, "Forward Thinking Sounds," prepares for their second official release, and continually searches for new ways to shake the dancefloor both in the realms of production and performance.
