Hailing from Springfield, IL Armando Zuniga aka “MonDope” is a fresh force to be reckoned with. Although he has only been performing and promoting for a short period of time, MonDope is no stranger to the scene. With an eclectic arsenal of music ranging from metal to hip-hop and underground, as well as many different forms of electronic music, there is never a dull moment in his sets. In the summer of 2010 Mondope came together with other local DJs to form Killinoize, a production company interested in bringing the new wave of bass music to Illinois’ own capitol city. Killnoize quickly gained a following of like-minded enthusiasts and bass heads in the region. Mondope’s sets are energetic and demand your attention.

Able to feel out any crowd at any moment, MonDope delivers a HEADY blend to get down to. Playing along side National acts such as Pretty Lights, Michael Menert, NastyNasty, VibeSquad, DNAE BEATS, R/D, NiTGriT, Freddy Todd, Elfkowitz, Alpaca, Phaded, Spankalicous and more to come. Expect the best of this rising artist in 2011!
Trinketz, aka Devin Gorman, is an up and coming talent born and raised in Peoria, IL. This places him in the perfect location to contribute to the growth of the Chicago/St. Louis dubstep scene. His love for music combined with technological skills acquired through majoring in Graphic Design has brought him to become one of Peoria’s most well-known dubstep DJs, as the scene continues to explode.
He began experimenting in late 2008 in order to give people something new and different to hear as well as entertain, by being able to create and control what group of people listened to with hopes they would enjoy. As the dubstep invasion continues to takeover, his passion helps him contribute and bring together the midwest’s growing music scene.
His combination of experimentally heavy bass, glitched out dance beats, and and dark psychedelic sound allows him to destroy dance floors with ear shattering bass drops. Within the Peoria area he has become a regular performer at “Wobble Wednesdays”, a weekly dubstep event that takes place at a local bar called Cam’s Place every Wednesday. Because of the dub invasion, Wobble Wednesdays have become excessively popular, allowing Trinketz to gain even more recognition, and a growing fan base. In late 2010 Trinketz was officially signed to Killinoize Productions. This is only the beginning.
