TRAP featuring gLAdiator & The Partysquad


gLAdiator is a DJ/Production duo from Los Angeles comprised of Danl Goodman and Ian Johnson. The two have established themselves as heavy hitters in the Trap/Bass-music game and show no signs of slowing down. They show their flex and diverse backgrounds by melding their collected musical taste and experience into a sound unique to gLAdiator. Their love of the Lakers and all things Mila Kunis fuels their productive fire with the aim of making a name for themselves in the wonderful melting pot they call home, Los Angeles.

The Partysquad

The Partysquad is the name of the DJ/ producer formation Jerry Leembruggen and Ruben Fernhout. Coming from The Netherlands, they have been responsible for international releases since 2009, amongst others on Spinnin Records, Universal / TopNotch and Mad Decent.
The Partysquad has been one of the most popular DJ formations of their country for a steady 8 years, not in the least because of their 10 success singles in the Dutch Top 40 charts. In 2008 they were one of the first Dutch dj's who were ready to take their sound abroad. While in Ibiza for preparations, their run came to a sudden stop; a life-altering car accident happened on the island and Jerry entered a coma that detoured their career indefinitely. As Jerry recovered and made his comeback in 2010, he and his partner in crime Ruben stepped into a world that was ready and willing to embrace their massive sound.
They started releasing tracks like "Amsterdamn" in collaboration with Afrojack, which was at that time one of their label's (Spinnin Records) best selling records worldwide on Beatport. After the release of two other international club bangers "Fire" and "Show Rocker" in 2010, they launched a Dutch slammer early 2011 called "Ik Ga Hard"; they ruled the top 10 position of the iTunes charts for almost 6 months with this tune.
In November 2011 the American label Downtown Records released the reggae-influenced track 'Original Don', a collaboration of Major Lazer with The Partysquad. Major Lazer, consisting of DJ/producer's Diplo and Switch, is amongst other great productions known for de single 'Pon Di Floor', that rocked every chart list and was played in clubs and at radio stations worldwide. Beyoncé took her part and used the sample for her hit single 'We run the world'. Even before this -in 2009- The Partysquad released their first EP 'Murderer/ Hollertronix # 10' on Diplo's label 'Mad Decent'.
Already on the Hollertronix EP was it that The Partysquad experimented with reggae. After the impact of 'Original Don', and the introduction of this new mix of reggae, hardstyle kicks and other styles of music, it became clear that the world was ready for more.
For a special project, The Partysquad expanded the style of Original Don and created an EP with 6 tracks, with just one purpose, to destroy dance floors all around the world. This Ep is called: the Badman Rave EP.
The Partysquad worked with a number of musical heroes: Dutch superstars like Afrojack, Bassjackers, Alvaro, Hardwell, Chuckie, Nicky Romero but also artists from the U.S. like Ninjasonik, Maluca and other next generation artists. Maybe 'creative chaos' could be the closest description of the genre that The Partysquad performs in, if there should be one. Their international releases show an extreme variety and are a true sound explosion. The only standard they are reckoned for is that their releases are made to breakdown every dance floor. So take this standard element and put electronic, hiphop, reggae, rock, dance, dub and all other raw sounds into a blender, you will get pretty close to what it is that The Partysquad brings and stands for.

Kid Kamillion

Hailing from the dirty south mecca of New Orleans, Bryan Normand, known by his 808 bass-slanging alter-ego Kid Kamillion, began his career in high school as he put down his skateboard and turned to spinning records. By college he was curating an underground music movement throughout the south and began taking over the New Orleans nightlife scene. Kid Kamillion took his knowledge of true southern hip-hop, and over 10 years of “rave culture” tweaked with his personal innovation and creativity, and pioneered a sound that quickly gained the attention and recognition of dance music ambassador A-Trak for the Kid Kamillion edit of “Heads Will Roll”. Kid Kamillion rapidly built a stout reputation amongst heavy hitters throughout the producer, DJ, and festival scenes. The year 2013 was beyond ground breaking for Kid Kamillion as it kicked off with him playing the Jay-Z Super Bowl party. Shortly thereafter he was playing shows all over the country, and even ventured out to playing shows in Europe. As a producer, Kid Kamillion has numerous collaborations with global hit maker Diplo and Berlin based techno giant Boys Noize, in addition to producing tracks for club legends Spank Rock and Kid Sister. Currently, Kid Kamillion spends most of his time jetting between Miami and Los Angeles and also in Houston producing with long-time friend and fellow New Orleans native Mannie Fresh. With his art & music rapidly spreading onto blogs and main-stages worldwide it will be hard to escape the name Kid Kamillion in 2014.
