DANNY THE WILDCHILD - M.I.A., DMC, FINEBEATS AUDIO - CHICAGO
Danny the Wildchild aka Daniel Garcia was born on the South side of Chicago in 1977. The brother of a once aspiring DJ, he keenly watched and quickly learned the tricks of the trade. Danny began djing at age nine soon surpassing his brotherâ€™s abilities and eventually inherited his equipment and records. At twelve, Danny entered a Chicago area contest for young DJâ€™s and won. He took home that fifty-dollar prize and was called â€œThe Wildchildâ€ from that day forward.
Although Dannyâ€™s roots were as a Hip-Hop DJ, he was eventually introduced into the Chicago Rave scene and to the world of drum-n-bass. He enjoyed this new form of music, but also loved hip-hop and began to creatively blend the two genres creating a unique sound of his own. As Dannyâ€™s turntable talents grew, he began to incorporate scratching and DMC style battle tricks into his Drum-n-Bass sets. His precise mixing skills and unique style and sound gave him the opportunity to bring Drum-n-Bass into the DMC and Hip-Hop scenes.
Dannyâ€™s recognition has earned him a collection of praises from domestic and international magazines such as Mixer, Thousand Words, Faqt, and Lotus to name just a few. Danny was also featured as one of the people making waves in the scene in Urbâ€™s Next 100 Artists to Watch Issue. When heâ€™s not on the road mixing it up at clubs and festivals across the U.S., he can be found teaching a scratch course at the Old School in Chicago.

MASON AND DSTAR - GASM, METALHEADZ, FREAK, P5 - PHILLY
MARK SUBSONIK - BETA RECORDINGS, TECHNIQUE, SUBSONIK SOUND - OKLAHOMA
Not only is Mark Subsonik dominating the â€˜Trance â€˜nâ€™ Bassâ€™ sound that John B has made so popular, but he also enjoys wearing shorts, has over 1000 friends on Myspace and once came third in a national lemon eating contest (alrightâ€¦ we made that last â€˜factâ€™ up). Subsonik fell in love with Drum & Bass in 1996 but has in fact been involved with music for much longer, having played the drums for over 20 years! He began DJing and in 1997 played his first event alongside Wally â€˜Pish Poshâ€™. It took seven more years for Mark to get bitten by the production bug, but once he had there was no looking back. Combining his love of both Trance and Drum & Bass, his musical output mixes the epic melodies and atmospherics of the former and the punchy breakbeats and weighty bass of the latter to devastating effect. Itâ€™s his love of rhythm and musicality that is setting his sound apart from the crowd and winning him the support of DJs up and down the D&B scene, from the aforementioned John B to Evol Intent and Cause 4 Concern. His heavy-hitting melodic tunes have been picked up by Drum & Bass' biggest and brightest imprints: Beta Recordings, Gain, G2, Sudden Def, Nightbreed UK, Incite, Xposure UK, Cymbalism, Terrafunk, Urban Takeover. Subsonik's latest accomplishment is an exclusive production deal with Simon Bassline Smith's Technique Recordings. The list of those championing his releases reads as a who's who of D&B and the list continues to grow.

EMPIRE X - FREAK, MINDSAW, FOUL PLAY RECS - TAMPA
EMPIRE X Was born in Sarasota FL. where he was raised into a family of musicians and music producers by a Mother well known for her talents as a singer. Derrick began making music at an early age where he gathered pencils and cans and beat away to make the rhythmic sounds of drums. At the age of 15 he was putting on live shows for young audiences rapping and rhyming lyrics at venues with a group of teenage performers called The Last Boyscouts. This was just the beginning of X many musical talents. Since the day he was old enough to realize the "art" of music, X knew he had something in him musically that he was not going to let be unheard or unknown. He was introduced into the Breakbeat scene originally where he found himself Break dancing to a beat that he loved. He met a local DJ in 1993, Chad Allen that caught his interest. X found himself very intreagued with the ability a DJ had to capture the mind, body and soul of every person in the club by spinning vinyl and performing talents that he never knew existed in a DJ. He started his quest practicing at his cousins? loft on two turntables spinning Hip-Hop. Day and night he was working at building something for himself, a name as a DJ. Soon after starting with Hip-Hop he realized it wasnâ€™t the genre he wanted to focus on. His main focus became Breakbeat.(Thanks to mike & Charlie M.A.C.) In 1994 he started spinning out at clubs and parties turning out Breakbeat records like he never thought he could. After a few years of spinning Breakbeat though he began to get tired of all the drug abuse associated mainly in the Breakbeat scene. X met Ron "DJ Bakini" who played Drum and Bass and that is how he began his search into the Drum and Bass World. He always loved the feel of Drum and Bass music and the people associated with it. X was asked to play at a Stateside Collective show with Sage and Marco back in January of 2000. That was all it took for him to turn over all his Breakbeat records and start a new collection of Drum and Bass music! Since his life of Drum and Bass began EMPIRE X has become a member of many major organizations and recording labels Such as Freak/Obscene UK, Technorganic Recordings Fl., Future Sickness Rec. UK, Mind Saw Rec. NY, Foul Play Rec. Fl, , Force Rec. Fl. And Order in kaos Rec. Uk. X began making his own DNB productions early in 2001 at a local studio in Sarasota where he produced his first remixed track. His first released track was with Hot Wax Recordings of Tampa, FL in 2003. Throughout his musical DNB career X has played with many big names such as Dylan, Robyn kaos, Gein, Mumblz, Evol intent, Empress, Panacea, Craze, Dieselboy, AK1200, Sage, Marco, and many more. If anyone deserves respect in the Drum and Bass scene for what they have done and accomplished it is Empire X. He has been through the good and bad, the ups and downs and has surely paid his dues. It has definitely been a struggle through the years to get to where he is at right now but he would not have made it without all the hard work and effort that he puts into the love of the music
MACHETE - JUNGLIST PLATOON, RESPECT - LA
MACHETE ignited his musical journey back in 1992 as DJ Rob G, spinning Hip-Hop at Hollywood afterhours events such as No-Doz, What?, and Caffiend. The Los Angeles underground rave culture was in it's infancy and Rob was inspired by the techno-breakbeat music emerging out of England via vinyl records played by DJs Raw, Curious, and Oscar da Grouch. These frantic bass-heavy beats that evolved from old-school breaks layered with HipHop and Reggae samples were intriguing and propelled him in a new direction. Rob, encouraged by his peers, changed his professional name to Machete in 1994... a title meant to evoke the nature of his mixing and cutting skills in relation to this new Jungle music.
As DJ Machete, Rob helped put Junglist Platoon on the map with gigs at nearly every Jungle party in the Greater Los Angeles area. A brief residency with Los Angeles mega-promoter Insomniac, plus a noted mention in URB Magazine's NEXT 100 Issue (1998) garnered much attention. Rob was then featured on various dates of the infamous KungFu-Knowledge Tour of 1999, placing Machete alongside many of the world's best including DJ Craze, Mampi Swift, and the legendary Rob Playford.
Machete is well-traveled and has showcased his skills in Costa Rica, Hawaii, Vancouver BC, and in numerous cities and states across the continental US including New York, Philadelphia, Virginia, Massachusetts, Washington DC, Miami, Chicago, Atlanta, Texas, Minnesota, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco and many more. Machete also made history as one of the very first Jungle/Drum and Bass DJs flown to perform in Anchorage, Alaska.
In March of 1999 the Junglist Platoon began hosting a weekly event called RESPECT with Machete in charge of talent bookings, promotions, as well as being a resident DJ. In March of 2000, Machete organized a RESPECT one-off at the Winter Music Conference in Miami which successfully placed the RESPECT brand at the forefront of Los Angeles Drum and Bass. After 11+ years, RESPECT is the longest running Jungle/Drum and Bass weekly in Los Angeles in addition to being one of the most successful clubs in the United States. RESPECT is globally known for bringing the best international and stateside talent and continues to do so after settling into it's fifth and most current venue, The Dragonfly in Hollywood.
In 2012 Machete is busier than ever, occasionally opening for mainstream Hip-Hop acts at House of Blues - Sunset Strip combined with DJ residencies at RESPECT, spinning DnB and Dubstep at one-off events, pushing his promotions company Machete-Media, hosting a weekly RESPECT DnB RADIO program, and engaging production projects proving his versatility as an artist.

Rene Reyes aka GENR8 is a man of many guises. He has been an integral part in several production power houses throughout the years and today continues to push the boundaries of electronic music production. Rene started out djing in Miami for several years before taking aim at producing, and has been passionate about primarily drum & bass production since. Back in 2004, Rene started production duo Alliance alongside pop music producer The Illfactor. The same year, they won a remix competition put together by Intercom Records for which they released their first single "Jive". Alliance went on to release several dance floor smashers on labels such as Incite, Nemesis and Cymbalism.

With a touch of luck and plenty of determination, he landed a full-time engineering gig doing audio post for a busy studio in Miami parallel to his underground movement. Eventually he decided to get out of the hectic world of mainstream audio production, and took up an opportunity to teach what he loved most to hungry minds at the prestigious Fullsail University in Orlando, FL. In 2008, he made the big move cross country to Los Angeles for an opportunity to teach at the Los Angeles Recording School where he currently runs the school's electronic production clinics along with instructing in various audio engineering courses. The past two years have found GENR8 in a state of constant transition and internal growth as he has decided to focus on developing his solo sound. In '08, he linked up with Gridlok and landed a tune on his Project 51 imprint on a compilation with US dnb godfather AK1200 titled â€œAutopsyâ€ which was nominated for a Grammy award later that year.
