A quick note from Cardio ATL:
A massive thank you to everyone who helped make our first year so much fun. We were able to bring a ton of artists that otherwise may not have had a chance to grace our city, make a ton of new friends, and listen to so much incredible music. A special thanks goes out to the Sound Table, Clandestine Artists, SOCO Audio, HEAT Promo, Beat Lab, and the many other organizations that helped us put these shows together. We have decided that we wanted to bring in Year 2 with a bang so without further delay...

Greg Paulus and Nick DeBruyn AKA No Regular Play met as 8 year olds growing up in St. Paul, Minnesota. Picking up inspiration from hip-hop and jazz legends such as A Tribe Called Quest, J Dilla, Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock, Greg performed trumpet at local jazz clubs in his teenage years and together they traveled to Cuba’s Havana to study Afro-Cuban rhythm, music and culture. Greg went on to study jazz/classical at the Manhattan School of Music and worked with James Brown’s drummer and Lauryn Hill before touring with critically acclaimed indie band Beirut.
In 2006 Nick joined Greg in Brooklyn to begin experimenting with electronic music after they attended a Wolf + Lamb party that blew their minds.
Two years later, they met Zev and Gadi of Wolf + Lamb, and immediately began a very close musical and personal relationship. Consequently No Regular Play was born, stylistically touching on a wide range of influences focused around live instrumentation, which is also used in their live sets.
In 2008 they released the acclaimed “Blonde Juan” digital package and in 2009 the “Owe Me” ep was released as a 12” .
You can find No Regular Play in the booth or at the party, bartending at Wolf +Lamb and operating the vinyl presses and forklift at Brooklyn Phono. Currently they are working on a 25 minute piece for improvisation/ electronics to be performed with the Minnesota Orchestra in 2011.
FRIDAY APRIL 9TH (NIGHT 2)

How busy can one man be? Let Butane tell you. He's running 2 successful record labels, producing EP's, albums and remixes for some of the most respected labels in the business, and touring extensively across the most renowned clubs in Europe, America, Asia and beyond... all without breaking a sweat.
A firm believer that the long hours of studio work keeps a musician grounded, he's produced 14 EP's, two albums, and countless remixes to date, on highly respected labels like Crosstown Rebels, Dumb Unit, Foundsound, Alphahouse, Rrygular, Mo's Ferry, and Hallucination Limited. Licensing original tracks to mix compilations such as Matthew Dear’s Fabric mix, Luciano’s HiFi SciFi on Soma and Damian Lazarus’ Get Lost mix shows that his peers in the industry hold his music in high regard.
He is also the sole creative mind behind Alphahouse Records, one of North America's premier underground electronic music labels. His latest label project, recently embarked upon with his long-time friend Sean O'Neal (Someone Else), "Little Helpers", is already making waves and popping up in playlists all over clubland.
As a DJ, Butane uses vinyl, Traktor Scratch, samplers, effects and whatever other new tools are available to craft his sets. Plenty of experience as a headline performer as well as an after-hour favourite enables him to play with an incredible range, and his remarkable sensitivity to the energy of the crowd is the rare trait of a seasoned and perceptive musician. His skillfully developed sets are both classy and elegant, but surely never predictable; thanks to his huge collection of new and old tracks alike, expect anything from seamlessly blended groovy, sexy, peak-time techno to warm, deep, heady house music.
Butane certainly makes a strong case for himself as one of the true talents in today's music scene. How many hats can one man wear? Or maybe the real question is: Are there any hats left unworn?
