Watch & Listen
Atlanta had always been a breeding ground for heavy bass music and hard party rap during the final decade of the 20th century. Pioneering this scene was Lil Jon and the East Side Boyz, who delivered their revolutionary Dirty South sound to the hard-partying masses.
Lil Jon began his music career as a club DJ in Atlanta before being invited to work for So So Def Records in 1993 as the Executive Vice President of A&R. Meanwhile, he began hosting a local radio show and started producing and remixing tracks for several big name artists in the Atlanta area, including Usher and Too Short. While making a name for himself as a producer, Lil Jon joined up with Big Sam and Lil Bo (The East Side Boyz) and, in 1996, cut their first album, Get Crunk, Who U Wit: Da Album.
While his initial success was confined mostly to the local underground music scene, his next big hit, "Bia', Bia'" from the 2001 release of Put Yo Hood Up, broke Lil Jon into the national market. Wasting no time, Lil Jon & the East Side Boyz released Kings of Crunk in 2002, scoring another big hit with "I Don't Give A …". By 2003, Lil Jon was solidifying his national popularity, with hits like "Get Low" (featuring the Ying Yang Twins).
In 2004, Lil Jon & the East Side Boyz gathered a number of rap stars in studio and released their next album, the hugely successful Crunk Juice. His latest effort, released in May of 2005, is a joint with Pastor Troy entitled Proud to Be American: Slowed and Chopped.

Looking back it's safe to say Sultan & Ned Shepard have quickly established themselves at the forefront of house music.
After launching Harem Nights at the world renowned Stereo Nightclub in Montreal, Sultan & Ned Shepard toured extensively across the world, rocking dance floors at festivals such as Dance Valley (Amsterdam), Global Gathering (Kiev & St. Petersburg), Creamfields (Peru) and Sunburn (India) as well as the world's leading nightclubs like Ministry of Sound (UK), Green Valley (Brazil), Pacha (Argentina, Egypt, Germany) and the ultimate venue, Privilege (Ibiza).
On the studio front, they were tagged by Beatport as the "kings of the progressive scene" with countless chart-topping productions and remixes including their collaboration with Funkagenda on Past Dreaming, and Crimson Sun featuring Grammy winners Dirty Vegas. They also became one of the year's most in-demand remixers with their unique take on Kaskade's Fire In Your New Shoes, Tiesto and Calvin Harris' Century, and Morgan Page's Fight For You, amongst others.
Continuing their hot streak, Sultan and Ned collaborated with the "Queen of Clubs" Nadia Ali, releasing Call My Name. This smash hit peaked at #5 on the Billboard Dance Chart, #2 on the UK Music Chart and #1 on the Beatport Electro chart, and in the process cemented its status as one of this year's anthems, with major club and radio support through the US and Europe.
Following up on the success of Call My Name, Sultan & Nedteamed up with Dutch superstar Fedde Le Grand to create the unstoppable monster anthem Running. Already reaching the Top Ten on Beatport, it has received praise and support from some of the top DJs in the world, including the pied-piper of dance music, BBC Radio One legend Pete Tong.
With dates supporting David Guetta on his tour across Canada, an unforgettable live performance featuring Nadia Ali at LIV nightclub in Miami and an action packed, tent-rocking experience at Ultra Music Festival, their shows have proven to be truly epic events.
Keep an eye out for their upcoming collaborations with Morgan Page and BT titled In The Air, as well as their highly anticipated remix of Swedish pop sensation Robyn's new single Call Your Girlfriend. Coupled with their unique take on DJ-ing and live sets, these boys are definitely ones to watch!
