Israel-based artist Berg—a.k.a. Shlomi Berg—has entertained hundreds of thousands of followers around the world. His performances encompass a half-dozen of the world’s most acclaimed—and massive—dance parties, including Brazil’s Tribe Festival and Experience Festival, Mexico’s Equinox Festival, Denmark’s Tam Tam Festival, Israel’s Unity Festival and France’s Inox Festival.
At the age of 25, Berg has already become one of the globe’s leading acts—over the course of just four years, when the sonic mixologist first launched his name brand. His ability to bring a crowd to its feet with hands waving in unison, as well as his mad beats, have fans from nearly every nation in the world pleading for him to make an appearance.
Across the time Berg has been consolidating his own style based on the desire to mix different sounds that brought inspiration, being able to take it to a new level which gave him the opportunity to collaborate with different artists such like Neelix, Symphonix, Capital Monkey, just to name few of them, releasing amazing tunes into well known labels like Spin Twist Records, and so Blue Tunes Records, in which he is currently signed up.
Berg has released four EPs and the full-length album project “Life Apart,” where we can find some of his worldwide hits like Generic Drugs, Double Edge and his most acclaimed hit by now, Soul Provider.
Code Black has played events such as Defqon.1, Qlimax, Mysteryland, Tomorrowland, HardBass and Decibel, being estimated as one of the greatest talents Hardstyle has to offer. Lately, tracks like 'Can't Hold Me Back' and 'Brighter Day' have confirmed the outstanding skills of Code Black as one of the top Hardstyle producers. His stage presence and fresh musical ideas are contributing to his status, being well respected among colleagues and supported by a fast growing worldwide fan base.
Go where it's happening...Code Black (Corey Soljan) acknowledged that his future as a Hardstyle producer wouldn't be in his hometown Sydney, so he relocated to the forefront of Hardstyle, the Netherlands. Originally moving in the beginning of 2011 as the duo 'Bioweapon' and later forming his solo act 'Code Black' by the end of 2011. Within the first months of his career he already struck gold with a hit which would place his name directly in the spotlight. "Red Planet" burst his name on to the scene with huge impact; the melody could be heard by thousands singing along in perfect harmony, no matter where it was played...from the Gelredome for Qlimax and Hardbass with up to 30,000 people, to the clubs and biggest summer festivals throughout the year, the crowd showed the proof that this was a hit and they loved it!
Summer 2012 came with another big success for Code Black, yet another hit with his dance floor smasher 'Can't Hold Me Back'.
The track gained massive support from so many of the top DJ's and producers and has been played numerous times at every festival throughout the summer.
'Can't Hold Me Back' was named at the end of the year by 'Headhunterz' as his favorite track of 2012 and will forever be a memory of the 'summer-anthem of 2012'.
'Brighter Day' is yet another masterpiece and is already a huge success of 2013, gaining massive support from his colleges and being picked up by day-time dutch radio station SLAM-FM for their TOP40 playlist, reaching a peak of number 8 in the TOP40 chart after 8 weeks!
Code Black succeeds in combining epic melodies with raw edgy production and an overall awe-inspiring atmosphere to his tracks. It's the result of his talent and perseverance to be unique with his music, as well as a sensitive understanding on how to perform in a live environment and balance his sets that get’s the crowds moving. Be prepared for another big year from Code Black!
As a born perfectionist and skilled artist, a remarkable and undeniably swift revolution marks the past few years of UK’s Jordan Suckley. Going from one of the scene’s most promising newcomers and a roar in the underground to playing the world’s high-end clubs, events and festivals, launching his very own Damaged Records and hitting the top of the charts with originals and remixes, is a mere reflection of the hard work this guy’s put into it. Leaving the rising star status behind, following his instinct and creating a path of his own, sees Jordan Suckley set a new standard for the next generation in electronic dance music.
Looking back on the high praise and ‘one-to-watch’ titles given to him by industry peers like Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk and Paul Oakenfold, Jordan Suckley has become a name that stands on its own merits. Years after holding residency on the world’s most revered dance music station – BBC Radio 1 – and releasing his studio work on labels like Armada Music, Garuda, Spinnin’ Records, Perfecto Fluoro, Vandit, Black Hole and Ultra, he’s established his own outlet. Launched in February 2014, Damaged Records made it to Beatport’s Top 15 of best-selling trance labels within its first year, clocking up no less than twelve Top 10 hits and various number one’s. With sold-out Damaged events taking place in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Belfast, Toronto, Milan and even Down Under, it’s clear that Suckley’s vision is shared and welcomed by music lovers well beyond his home territory.
Though Damaged Records leaves plenty of room to support upcoming talent, it’s also home to Jordan’s studio work. The label’s released Suckley’s successful ‘Contaminated’, ‘Aztec Curse’, ‘Droid’ and ‘Medic’. The latest highlight includes his monster remix for Tiësto classic ‘Suburban Train’, causing a storm in the sets and shows of every major trance act. Topping Beatport’s Trance and entering the main chart in one go lets you know why Jordan has been given the task to remix the originals of Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Markus Schulz, Gareth Emery, Aly & Fila, Simon Patterson and John O’Callaghan.
Ensuing gigs at Tomorrow World, EDC Las Vegas, A State of Trance, Future Sound of Egypt, Global Gathering UK, Cream Ibiza and tours in Australia, Asia and Argentina, the next few months await him with plenty more headliner slots. Each promoter knows that when booking him, they’re in for an exceptional experience – incorporating a showcase of his scratching skills. As Damaged Records continues to grow, his sounds spread and name echoes across the scene. Resting on his laurels is no way to go for Jordan Suckley though, so you’d best prepare to be blown away – again and again.

Dubloadz aka Dave Nardolilli is a producer who's quickly proven himself a force to be reckoned with, shattering the idea of subgenres and turning the dubstep world upside down over the course of only a year.

The Prototypes are Brighton-based producers and DJs, Chris Garvey and Nick White. Having exploded onto the scene over the past few years, and with DJ support from the likes of Andy C, Knife Party, Zane Lowe, Afrojack, Annie Mac and Krewella to name a few, there’s been no looking back for the production duo with their polished, dancefloor-destroying drum and bass.
Having made their debut on Futurebound’s Viper Recordings in 2010 with the track ‘Evolution’ from the inaugural ‘Summer Slammers’ album, it wasn’t long before The Prototypes caught the attention of some of the scenes leading taste-makers. Following their debut, The Prototypes quickly released their first single ‘Cascade’ on Infrared Records. A huge hit on both radio and across the scene, ‘Cascade’ received Radio 1 support from the likes of: Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Annie Nightingale, Fabio & Grooverider – and was also featured on UKF’s first ever compilation album, ‘UKF Drum & Bass 2010’.
With early support from the likes of Roni Size, Matrix & Futurebound, DJ Friction, J Majik & Wickaman, Andy C, Pendulum, and DJ Fresh, The Prototypes quickly became one of the most hotly-tipped production duos in the scene.
After being featured in Pendulum’s 2010 Essential Mix, The Prototypes unleashed the vocal anthem ‘Breathless’ on Formation Records to huge acclaim worldwide. Having now cemented their place in the scene, The Prototypes signed with DJ Friction’s Shogun Audio in 2011. Wasting no time in making their presence known, the duo released their debut EP, ‘Born To Rise’, followed by the monster single ‘Pandora’ / ‘Abyss’.
The end of 2012 saw The Prototypes release arguably their biggest track to date with the big euphoric dancefloor vibes of, ‘Suffocate’ from the EP of the same name. Never resting on their laurels, they returned less than a month later with another huge hit, ‘Blackout’, which featured the vocals of MC ID reminding us “it’s time to tear the roof off”. The Brighton boys next teamed up with vocalist Takura (of Chase & Status fame) in typical cinematic fashion to produce the haunting sounds of ‘Rage Within’, one of the finest examples of The Prototypes ability to produce vocal anthems that also cause bassline warfare on the dancefloor.
Also one of the busiest production teams on the remix front, The Prototypes credits read as a who’s who of some of the biggest names in dance and electronic music. With remixes for the likes of: Avicii, Ed Sheeran, Bingo Players, Hadouken, Modestep, AlunaGeorge, Fleur, Don Diablo, Ian Carey feat. Snoop Dogg, DJ Vadim, The Qemists, Friction, and Koven – it’s not hard to see why The Prototypes have become so high in demand.
Entering into the next chapter of their careers, The Prototypes have now signed with Viper Recordings and will release debut album in a matter on months. With ‘Just Bounce’ featured on Andy C’s ‘Nightlife 6’ album last year, their first single from the forthcoming 'City of Gold' LP has just dropped. The massive 'Pale Blue Dot,' with 'Lights' on the flip, has gathered a wealth of support from DJs and fans alike. The future has never been brighter for one of the most exciting production outfits in recent years.
