Growing up in a small town on Canada’s Atlantic Coast, Brooklyn-based Bit Funk has quickly earned a reputation as one of house and disco’s most respected artists. With breakout tracks like his 2012 crossover hits “It Ain’t Easy” and “It’s My Love,” Bit Funk has established an international fan base and lived up to the hype with a steady touring schedule in the United States, Canada and Europe.

With remixes for Viceroy, Treasure Fingers, GRUM, as well as other notable artists, Bit Funk has garnered support from heavyweights such as Alan Braxe, The Magician, RAC, Oliver, Jody Wisternoff and even Flosstradamus. His memorable hooks and smooth melodies weave a signature sound that delivers equally well on the dance floor, or as the soundtrack to your daily life. The former drummer’s productions draw their influences from far and wide, paying respects to the classics while making their mark in the contemporary club scene. As a DJ, Bit Funk has an ever increasing plate, playing crowds from Miami to Los Angeles, and Newfoundland to Vancouver.

With over 10 years of international DJ’ing experience killing dancefloors, Ashley Jones, a.k.a. Treasure Fingers, is no stranger to rocking parties. A well-versed producer and an accomplished musician, Treasure Fingers has his lustrous hand in multiple genres. He is also part of the drum and bass trio, EVOL INTENT, who are widely considered the #1 US producers in their respective genre. While most would rest easy on the success of one genre, Treasure Fingers does not sleep. Operating out of his home base of Atlanta, he produces music endlessly in between touring, dabbling in hip hop, electro, idm, downtempo, and more. Jones’ major break in to the electro scene came by way of his catchy remix of Snowden’s “Anti Anti” for Jade Tree Records. The success of this remix led to remixes for other artists including Estelle, Operator Please, The Deathset, Ocelot, Kerli, Alex Metric, & Romanthony, the writer and vocalist behind Daft Punk’s mega-hit “One More Time”. All the while he has continued to produce banging original tunes such as “Cross the Dancefloor”, which caught the ear of A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs, landing him a spot on the Fool’s Gold Records roster.

Brooklyn producer and party maestro Sammy Bananas lives up to his name. This Fool’s Gold OG has proven himself as a master of the club jam, writing tunes that pay respect to dance music’s past while simultaneously charting it’s quirky, funky future. “BLO” is his latest hybrid single, a chunky, pulsating sax house jam. He crafts official remixes for big names like Chromeo, Tinashe and even Maroon 5 while his acclaimed and tasteful bootlegs of tracks by Miguel, JT and Rae Sremmurd are DJ staples which transcend narrow subgenres. Sammy Bananas has rocked dance floors in over 100 cities across the globe, sharing stages with the likes of A -Trak, Kenny Dope and Holy Ghost! Whether it’s an all-wax set in LA at the Do-Over, cutting edge house at Durrr in London and Rhonda in LA, traveling further afield on a recent Asia tour, or his appearance at MOOG fest, he always delivers with his uniquely funky yet focused style.
