Plastic Plates is the Dj/producer alias of Felix Bloxsom. Originally hailing from Sydney Australia, Felix is now based in Los Angeles.

These artists include Adele, Sia, Body Language, The Presets, Sam Sparro, The Human League, Sneaky Sound System, The Magician, Katy Perry and Mark Ronson and more…
2012 saw the release of Plastic Plates' debut EP Things I didn't Know I Loved" on french tastemaker record label Kitsune, with a slew of remixes to boot. With almost 2 million plays on Soundcloud and regular appearances in the Hype Machine top 10, Plastic Plates' popularity around the world is steadily growing. This has taken him to all corners of the world to DJ extensively through Europe, the USA, Central and South America, Russia, Asia and Australia.
Stay tuned for new original releases and plenty more remixes in 2013!
MantaRay has developed his own blend of original Space Junk w the release of the Space Cadet EP to close out 2012. Shifting gears to focusing on Deep House and NuDisco twenty-thirteen has been careening along at light speed for this shooting star with opening slots for Tropicool, Christian Martin, Plastic Plates, Worthy,The Polish Ambassador, Signal Path, Abakus, Penguin Prison, as well as playing to a crowd of over 1000 at Denver's Ogden Theatre to culminate a 3 night tour with Conspirator.
Mixes are created using the S4 and countless hours of editing & re-editing tracks to give MantaRay sets a signature flair as almost every track mixed is a edit/re-edit of the original version. Using the S4 over Cdj's allows MantaRay to play these edits live turning the turntables into more of a musical instrument than an interface.Striving to create a constant mix, MantaRay is a mash up master creating 3 and 4 track mixes in the height of his sets! Expanding his horizons with the formation of the group Space Race, residency with Denver Disco, & an hour set at Electric Forest Festival the future is bright for this starchild.
