- JUSTIN SCHUMACHER (Good For You Records/Ill Bomb Records)

It all started in Brooklyn, NY during the mid 90's. Hip hop's golden era was winding down, and the NYC rave scene was just beginning to descend from its peak. There were still tons of big parties and outlaws happening and it was here where Justin first developed his love for EDM.
In 2000, he bought a pair of Technic 1200's and taught himself how to mix and beatmatch with a crate of hand me down techno records from classic labels like Drumcode, Code Red, Hybrid, Planet Rhythm, Svek, Primate, Primeveil, etc. Soon after, with perfect timing, he landed a job working for the prestigious and world renown Satellite Records. Being around the widest selection of new releases and back catalogues only further fueled his vinyl addiction and ability to pick tracks. Within a year, Justin was getting booked to play at various techno weekly's and one offs around the city at famed locations such as Guernica, Liquids,and Sullivan Room to name a few. Established DJ's and promoters were calling him a prodigy due to his eerily quick understanding and mastering of technical and programming skills. Track selection and dancefloor response solidified his status as a respected up and comer in the scene.

In 2004 Justin decided to enroll in the DMX audio program at Touro College in NYC and earned his certificate for audio engineering. That same year he began co-producing tracks with good friend Agent Orange who was already running his well known label Gotham Grooves, putting out vinyl releases consistently. Up until that point Justin had only dabbled in production on a novice level and felt it was time to take the next step, and those first few studio sessions with Agent Orange were the seeds that started it all. Soon after he saved up to buy his own home rig where he can refine his sound. Around 2007 he began producing heavily albeit exclusively hip hop. His roommates and childhood friends/emcee collaborators I Am Many and Reason Kills were the catalyst for these beats which remained hip hop in essence but had undertones of the techno and house music he still played and adored.
His DJ schedule during these years remained modest in NY with some notable gigs outside the city in Detroit and Philly mostly. The DJ circuit in NYC was and still is extremely saturated and difficult to break into on a professional level. It takes a lot more than skills to turn this love of playing techno into a career, and it took a long time for Justin to realize this revelation - If you're not going out 3-4 nights a week and schmoozing with the movers and shakers in the scene, you absolutely must be putting out great music and getting recognition as a producer on an international level before any worthwhile gigs will come your way.

Following some eye opening gigs around the year 2008 in the Raleigh-Durham region of North Carolina where Justin's sets were greeted with packed floors and screaming frenzy, the fire was re-lit. It was this turning point where Justin began taking the necessary steps to solidify a career for himself in the brutally difficult NYC market. This included making equal time in the studio for Techno and House production on top of Hip Hop, as well as proper networking in the metropolis. His first EDM release was a remix for Agent Orange's techno banger "Motorolla" on Gotham Grooves. The feedback that followed was stellar and a true testament to his dormant talent for creating grooves and dancefloor gold from the DJs perspective. It wasn't long before the calls and remix requests started rolling in.

As a result of these first few releases and his networking prowess, he linked up with NYC house music staple Kenny Summit in 2009 and layed down the framework for the promising career that glimmers on the horizon presently. Kenny saw the talent and decided to include him in his plan to start a new label once the pieces were in play and the proper investments locked down. In the meantime Justin released several original tracks and remixes on labels such as Mile End Records, Sonido Locale Recordings, B-Perfect Records, Gotham Grooves, and Assimilation Recordings, which all received heavy acclaim and support from the international DJ community. Like clockwork, the gigs became much more frequent in NYC and abroad, thus building an aura and demand for his high energy DJ sets and floor friendly productions.

In 2011, Kenny Summit's Good For You Records was formed with the financial backing and industry know-how that could transform this hobby into a legitimate career. Justin was quickly signed and began churning out tunes for GFY's catalog under his name as well as the collaborative effort "Goddam Kids" with Kenny Summit. The GFY sound is more geared more towards crossover house and tech house appeal but most importantly, remained totally underground and true to his tastes as a multi-faceted DJ. The first batch of releases are slated for a June 2012 drop.
On the techno side, Justin is set to release the "Gate EP" on Ill Bomb Records in May 2012 which includes remixes from some of the top techno talents from NYC as well as A-List techno heavyweight Audio Injection aka Truncate which is already getting support from Chris Liebing, Subfractal, Erphun, The Advent, among many others. With countless other projects in the works, 2012 is proving to be the biggest year yet with no signs of slowing down.

And on a side note, Justin's hip hop production, under the alias Logik Proof, has found its way to the airwaves of the largest hip hop radio station in the world, Hot97. Peter Rosenburg played the lead single "Posers" from his album with I am Many, titled Strength In Numbers, for seven weeks straight on his Sunday NIght showcase "Real Late w/ Rosenburg".

Justin's DJ style can be described as moody, thought provoking, bangin, funky, and most importantly, dancefloor frenzy inducing. Techno, house, and all of the blurry lines in between are surgically programmed and intertwined with passion and undeniable presence. Whether it's an hour bang fest, or a 3 hour journey, Justin Schumacher will without question make you dance your ass off from the moment he touches the mixer until the last track is played.

- CHAMOMILE (Mineaturesrec/Resort)

EDM producer Roman Chamomile, known as simply Chamomile, has releases on many independent record labels, such as Miniaturesrec, Subtrak, Kynatix, Imperial/Border Recordings, UrbanVibe Records, Truth Underground Rec, Ill Bomb Records, Footmusic Records, Resort Records and many more. His exploratory vibes have been perceived as different from the mainstream, most of what would be considered Tech. His latest productions include elements of Deep House, Techno, Tech-House and Minimal, with each track superseding the last by higher quality and creativity. Born in Ukraine, Roman moved to NYC at the age of 10, with knowledge of music theory, and proficiency as a pianist. By the age of 19, Roman mastered the guitar and bass guitar as well, and was in numerous Rock/Metal/Death Metal bands and opened up for some of the greatest acts in those genres, from which he achieved his darker tastes for music. After frequenting many major and local EDM parties, Roman became discontent with the direction of the music industry and started getting into the underground techno scene in NYC. He became a producer/dj after he broke ties with his other music career and had his first release from Kynatix in January 2012. His latest EP entitle "Nikolayev", was featured on the top 100 Beatport Techno Chart, which is available via Ill Bomb Records. Chamomile is also part of Destroy Date, a group formed between himself and d_Verge, which is set to release quality dark techno projects with their first EP entitled "More Disk Space" available on Kynatix. We are yet to see what his future accomplishments hold for his ever growing fan base.

Born in NYC, Craft bought his technics 1200's & Vestax mixer at age 14 with his own life savings in 1994. He taught himself the skill of beat matching and studied the art of blending tracks smoothly to perfection with persistence. He began producing music in 1999 under the name "Craft". He dj's 3 times per month on average in the NYC underground techno scene for his established "Twice as Proper" techno events and other local showcase events. He evolved from the Vinyl-only days to CDj’s of all types, and now often performs live with his all-in-one DJ workstation M-Audio Torq Xponent. In 2010, Craft traveled to Europe for his Italy Dj tour to Milan, Rome, and Terracina, then experienced an incredible Costa Rica DJ Tour covered by much media attention (national radio and TV). Craft ended up the year by hosting 8 Twice as Proper events in 5 stunning different stunning venues in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. In 2011, Craft performed on the main stage at "The Works" during DEMF/Movement (Detroit Electronic Music Festival), as well as in Washington DC at Funxion and Sweet Spot clubs, and also at Boston’s famous Rise afterhours club as headliner in the main room for 5-hours. He was finally approached by countless labels for remixes and original EP’s and is now signed on 19 top labels based in 9 countries. Craft currently has 6 EP's released plus many remixes in 2012 alone.

In 2012, Craft showcased for Cultured Citizens event at The Old Miami in Detroit, and performed at an incredible 5 after parties during Detroit's Movement Festival 2012, including performances at The Works, Belle Isle, Bookie's, TV Bar, and Motor-City Wine. Later in the year, Craft headlined again at The Works for a "Devolve Detroit" event. Craft co-created the NYC techno movement "Twice as Sweet" with his partner Shadi in 2007. It was later renamed "Twice as Proper" and has reached an impressive "over 200 events" and counting in the past 5 years with an illustrious list of over 100 guest DJ bookings. "Feed The Raver Podcast show" was founded and hosted by Craft himself along with Jenny Arredondo. It debuted worldwide on March 3rd 2012 with interviews and guest techno DJ sets from a different city around the world every 2 weeks. Feed The Raver officially partnered with Movement festival media coverage in 2012 interviewing international techno DJ's as well as promoting the festival itself. Craft also created and designed the "Party People" T-Shirt which has a history of its own...

About Craft's music production:
Craft first began producing in 1999 with programs such as ReBirth (which emulates two Roland TB-303 synthesizers, a Roland TR-808, and a Roland TR-909 drum machine all at once) and Cakewalk for final arrangements. He then used strictly Reason for five years, from its first version launched in 2000 through version 3 when he finally migrated to Apple’s Logic 7 in 2005. Today he continues to use Logic, which has now reached version 9 (aka Logic Pro) as well as Maschine. Craft taught himself everything and is a true master at using the complicated features of this professional music production software The results are evident with the continuous smashing releases which have now earned him an international reputation, 13 years in the making..
