Wick-It The Instigator
He's got a reputation for doing some thoughtfully fresh and mindblowingly original remixes that take him from beyond a standard dub step or mash-up artist to a DJ/producer with skills that have turned heads and caught ears all over the Southeast. In a live setting, he sends people off with his mix of humor, ingenious pop culture samples and beats that can't be touched. While his roots are firmly planted in hip hop, there is no shortage of heavy electronic bass music at a Wick-it show.

SPANKALICIOUS is BOUNCE more aptly Psychedelic Bounce. Based out of Connectorville, USA he averages 150+ shows a year on the road and rocks and each and every one of them. Spankalicious has shared bills with almost every major cutting edge act in livetronica, bass music, electro, and hip-hop Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, eoto, Caspa, Borgore, Shpongle, just to name a few. In addition, Spankalicious has had several major festival appearances including Sonic Bloom, Bassnectar’s First Bass Center, Wakarusa, Summer Camp, Camp Euforia, and more. In 2012 he made his triumphant return to Summer Camp Music Festival, as well as making his debut at The Manifestation Celebration in Dallas, the inaugural IMPULSE Music Festival in Georgia, and the blowout Camp Bisco XI in upstate NY alongside some of the biggest acts of today. An extensive background in rudimental percussion and drumline allows Spank to read rhythms inside and out and even incorporate live drumming into his sets. With musical influences ranging from the Grateful Dead and Phish to U.G.K. and Three Six Mafia, Spanky has found his niche in his world of Glitchy Hippie Psychedelic Bounce.
2012 was his busiest year to-date. He covered the country with shows and released 3 ep's including the release of two studio albums - Psychedelic Boogaloo Intervention and Higher Expectations. Recently, Spankalicious unveiled his third signature hat from Grassroots California, which was paired with a huge performance at Cervantes’ Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver, Colorado. The fall of 2012 saw the 40+ city Do Magical Things tour which featured more than 40 dates and pairing with acts like EOTO, Archnemesis, Dr. Fameus, Ott, Crizzly, Downlink, Zoogma and the gamut of the top global EDM performers at the inaugural Counterpoint Music Festival in Atlanta, GA.
Filibusta (Troy Probst) is an emerging artist from the tiny town of Fillmore, IL. When he grew bored of tipping cows and wrecking tractors, he taught himself to play guitar. Since then, his fingers have buzzed with life. He uses an MPD drum pad to trigger drum, bass, synth, and vocal samples live. Thus, Filibusta's work vibes as a real-life, in-your-face experience -- creative, original, and just for you.
Filibusta has been producing and mixing music since 2007, sharing the stage with The Glitch Mob, MartyParty, R/D, ChrisB, Trill Murray, jOBOT, Spankalicious, Prophet Massive, Break Science, ill-esha, Signal Path, and Phaded in recent years. His remixes include tracks by The Glitch Mob, Skillrex, and Nit Grit just to name a few. In spring 2012, he placed a mighty 3rd in the Untz Challenge III. Filibusta's grand scheme in life is to restore the progressive and melodic elements of glitch and dubstep. With nearly 200,000 plays on Souncloud, Filibusta is an artist you'll want to keep your ears open to!
