WILLY JOY (Chicago)
Willy Joy’s DJ sets and original productions have been packing sweaty dance floors across the country from major festivals like Lollapalooza to small basement clubs. Recently, Willy has traveled the globe as Kid Sister’s tour DJ and his latest track ‘Woman Like Me’ has been tearing up clubs across the country. With his releases getting support from the likes of Diplo, Drop The Lime, Brodinksi and Boy 8 Bit, as well as constant touring throughout the U.S. and beyond, Willy has gained ample momentum and has been rightly named as one of the “Next 100 Artists To Watch” by URB Magazine.

Smalltown DJs (Pete Emes and Mike Grimes) have produced several blends, remixes and re-edits that have been getting worldwide airplay, and have recently teamed up with Wax Romeo to create Smalltown Romeo (Plant Music); a production super-group focused on making polymorphous, party-focused and pretension-free music. Their latest remixes include productions for Rye Rye, M.I.A., Chilly Gonzales and Chromeo, in addition to hosting numerous mixes and vinyl 12″ on their on label, Bigfoot Records. Holding a residency at Calgary’s Hifi Club, the Smalltown DJs have played alongside such artists as Afrika Bambaataa, Tommie Sunshine, Diplo, A-Trak and DJ Ayres and have been nominated for “best Calgary DJ” in the Canadian Stylus DJ awards in 2006 and 2007.

Richard Galling aka Richard Richard is a music producer, visual artist, DJ, and foodie, residing in Milwaukee, WI. Much of his musical influence stems from his close proximity to Chicago and Detroit. Pairing early Chicago house sounds with Detroit techno futurism, Richard Richard re-contextualizes forms he grew up loving, but was too young to experience in clubs. Like many new producers today, he prefers to return to these original sounds in an attempt to redevelop and rethink them. But it’s not just a simple retrospection, rather an intense reinvestigation into the potential these sounds have.
