Watch & Listen
Intense shows with incomprehensible energy, music with great supporters from big acts across the globe, as well as a likability and intimacy with fans and supporters around the world are what make everything "Ookay". With only six months' time of being in a fast-paced, competitive and growing industry, Ookay has established himself by other as "a leader" and being at the forefront of a rapid growing music genre.
With only six months creating music, Ookay has created an imprint of a growing sound within clubs and major festival. His first ever Beatport release with Ultra Records has charted very well on the electronica chart peaking at #10. With thousands of people supporting Ookay, there's no limit to where he may go. Already associating himself with names like Borgore, UZ, Flosstradamus, RL Grime, Mayhem, Craze and more, Ookay has gained mass popularity and a likability, not just personally, but musically as well.
Ookay was recently listed as one of Vibe Magazines top Trap / Moombahton artist to watch in 2013. With his recent release on the Buygore Allstars Album taking over dance floors across the world, Ookay is definitely an artist to keep your eye on in 2013 and many years to come.
Hailing from Southern California, Kennedy Jones is no stranger to bass music stages in the United States. Having had great success with his prior collaborative project which was predominantly Dubstep oriented, his last release was signed to Ultra Records. With a need for a solo project, the "Kennedy Jones" project was born taking the trapstyle bass music scene by storm. With support from artists such as Borgore, 12th Planet, Mt Eden, Luminox, Shift Key, Ookay, and more, he has proved already that his high energy bass-packed tunes can rock dance floors across the world.
Most notably, the recent release of Elvis Crespo's "Suavemente" (Kennedy Jones Trap Remix) on the Buygore All Stars Album
( http://bit.ly/kjsuavemente ) which has recently been played on the Los Angeles based radio station Power 106 and UK based radio station BBC Radio 1 by 12Th Planet ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p013jsw3 ). The album also features a collaboration between Kennedy Jones and Borgore with their 110BPM dance floor smasher remix of "Macarena".
Having started his solo project less than 3 months ago, Kennedy is quickly becoming recognized as the artist to watch in 2013 and keeps supporters wanting more with his versatile productions and live selection.
The recent release of Kennedy’s new original Tutch Drap has quickly gained support from notable artist around the world and has currently received air play on BBC1Xtra with Benga and N-Type.

For a scene that seems to be becoming more and more monotonous, K-Mac brings his own refreshing take on electronic music, which will never stop evolving.
The Digital Connection
The Digital Connection is the musical alias of Ricky Shine. In 2008 Ricky Shine age 18, a boulder resident for life, was living in the heart of downtown Denver, where he was exposed to the vast dance music scene. Attending club Beta and other shows almost weekly, the desire to be behind the decks grew even more. With a background in playing bass guitar with several local metal and jam bands, this new found passion of "bass" music seemed like the right direction to go. The first songs were made on FL studio under the name "Stucatto" and can mostly be considered Electro House style. His friend Guam was the first person to introduce Ricky to the world of mixing. The first live DJ performance by Ricky was a house party, which was thrown by the soon to be the Got Bass Music crew in the spring of 2009.
During the summer of 09 Ricky dubbed himself the alias "The Digital Connection." The first track made under this name was an ambient track called "Waking Awareness" which featured a clip from artist Alex Grey. After a month or so of developing a new style, he was introduced to the program Ableton Live, and the ability to mix tracks using the device APC40. This opened up a whole new world of possibilities by allowing him to bring the songs to a live set. After a while Ricky started DJing house parties and personal shows for friends, which eventually turned into playing for crowds of people with Got Bass Ent. only a few months later.
The Digital Connection has performed in many small clubs and bars in the Denver and Boulder area including The Mix, Mini Bar, Diamond After Dark, The Marquis, Cervantes, and even the A-Basin resort. Recently with the self release of "The Space Man E.P, The Digital Connection has received a lot of attention from music blogs, websites, and music labels. With Ricky's passion for all kinds of music, you can expect to hear anything ranging from down tempo ambient tunes to dubstep and glitch hop bangers in his live set.
Live instruments are also being added into the mix with a live drummer as well as live bass and synth to bring out the full experience of DC's music.
