GANZ

Dutchman Jordy Saämena also known as 'GANZ' has been involved with music his entire life. His first musical influences as a child being hip-hop, old soul and garage before getting into drumming. It is a fusion of these early genres and his signature 'Future Bass' sound that now establishes GANZ as one of the hottest electronic producers around. His incredible 'flips' and originals earning an impressive calibre of support from artists such as A-trak , Mr Carmack, Flume, Djemba Djemba, What So Not, Lido, Disclosure, Rustie, Hudson Mohawke, and plenty more to match!

On the 18th of November 2013 GANZ released his EP, 'PVRPLE CWTCH' on Plastician's label Terrorhythm. And in February 2014 he released his 'flip' of Flume's sensational remix of "Hyperparadise" by Hermitude. Within six days this track hit 300.000 streams on Soundcloud and now has over 3 million streams.

He has remixed for What So Not, Alison Wonderland, RL Grime and Flume, had two massive original EPs, features on 'Diplo and Friends' and 'Triple J - Mix Up Exclusives', AND he has started own label 'The Hard Headed', GANZ is certainly taking on the industry head first! For those lucky enough to catch GANZ last year at STATIC, you know you are in for a treat!

His latest EP 'GAO' has been very recently released and is a beautiful blend of sound that can only be from a GANZ project. Give it a listen on his soundcloud and stay tuned on the event page where we shall post a range of GANZ beats!!

AKOUO

As one of the artists at the forefront of the "Australian Sound", Ryan Farrington aka Akouo has been a very exciting name to watch. Remixing the likes of Flume, Gorgon City, ZHU, RL Grime and producing amazing singles such as "All They Do" and "Last Time" we couldn't be more stoked to have him coming through for his exclusive north island show on August 1st.

As a DJ, his all round, anything goes attitude towards music has made his services highly sought after throughout Tasmania, and has seen him tour throughout Australia, supporting artists such as Classified, DOOM, Bliss n Eso, DJ Premier, and more, on top of performing at Hobart's Soundscape Festival and Marions Bay Falls Festival. Akouo's DJ sets consist of an overwhelming array of tasty musical flavors from all around the globe, drifting from hip-hop to Brazilian music, reggae to trap, moombah to grime – if it's likely to make you dance, it's in his catalogue.

As a producer, his beats have been the backbone for hip-hop outfits JNA (Javs & Akouo) and Letters To The Sun (Coin & Akouo), and his past collaborations include artists such as Phatchance (aka Chance Waters), 360, Class A, Moka Only, 20Syl, among others.

Akouo's instrumental chillwave/boom-bap EP 'Above & Beyond' was recently released for free download - in January this year, receiving critical acclaim worldwide from blogs such as The Ripe, Hillydilly, Sampleface and claimed feature album of the week on JJJ's Hip Hop show.
