**Bachelors Of Science** (First Pgh Performance)
As long-time residents of the weird and always unexpected city of San Francisco, Bachelors Of Science are renowned for mixing up and making unique blends of laid back, tripped-out, soul drenched tracks that are designed to be listened to as well as just heard on the floor. Choosing quality over quantity, they are regarded as one of the most consistently innovative and sought-after remixers and producers of the area, working with everyone from dance music legends Groove Armada and Paradox to indie darlings Home Video and Silver Swans.
With their own productions, the Bachelors continue to defy those that try to categorize them into a genre. From the deep liquid drum n bass inspired by their hometown of London and the likes of High Contrast and LTJ Bukem to the minimal inspired Autonomic sounds of dBridge and sun-drenched 4/4 grooves inspired by fellow SF locals Dirtybird … the Bachelors have retained their quality and a large and loyal following throughout, garnering plays from Annie Mac, Basement Jaxx, LTJ Bukem, High Contrast, Loxy, Doc Scott, DJ Hype, Reid Speed, Alix Perez, Grooverider and DJ Marky.
Their debut album "Science Fiction" released in 2008 to critical and commercial acclaim, became one of the top selling drum n bass albums of all time, with "Song For Lovers" and "The Ice Dance" becoming liquid drum n bass anthems and the Apex remix of "Strings Track" eventually winning "Best Drum n Bass Track" at the 2009 Beatport Awards. More recent remixes of The XX, Home Video, Death Cab For Cutie, Groove Armada and Seasick Steve have won praise across the music blogoshpere, placing them atop the Hype Machine chart for weeks in a row.
**Divine Elements** (DJ SET)
Drum and Bass
Originally spawned from a small studio in Los Angeles, California, Divine Elements began with a vision of a collective that would eventually provide audiences with an experience that is often hard to find in the electronica music scene. An experience that would change what party goers alike expect from performers at clubs and electronic music events around the globe. That vision was a live PA wh ich would rival the best of both the audio and visual worlds. A collective of enthusiasts performing on stage with synthesizers, guitar, drums, vocals and integrated video stimulation.
Once inspired by such artists as Roni Size and Reprezent, Thievery Corporation, Daft Punk, Crystal Method, BT and Prodigy, Divine Elements set out on a mission to represent Drum and Bass and all other genres they encompass in a whole new light. Group founders Concise and Ru started the collective with the idea that they would introduce new "elements" as time went on; finding the right artists to join them on their mission of
"giving the audience what they deserve out of an electronic performance." As time went on, they found just that.
Recently, Divine Elements has directionally shifted their path towards more Studio and DJ worthy sounds, with recent bangers released on labels such as Project 51 (Gridlok) Heavy Artillery, Betamorph and Simplify, they are sure to grab even the uneducated listener and take them on a journey. They recently had two new albums entitled "For The Taking" showcasing over 15 tunes from their back catalogue for a free download on their Soundcloud website.
**PLS DNT STP**(First Pgh Performance)
The lights went down, the sound went up. She turned to him and said, “PLS DNT STP”.The strobe lights were so blinding. They almost forgot how they met. It was the last song of the night. The last chance to dance. He turned to her and said, “PLS DNT STP”.
PLS DNT STP has been making waves in the dubstep and bassline community with releases and remixes for Ultra Records, Ministry of Sound, Designer Drugs, Unruly Records, Your Dirty Habit, Owl Vision, and LU10 Records. Their first splash was in early 2011 with a remix for Ultra Records of Designer Drugs’ smash hit “Through The Prism”. Since then it’s been a non stop hustle. Look for their upcoming release on Designer Drugs’ SEX CULT Records, “Digital Drugs”, as well as their “For All We Know Remix”, also for Designer Drugs out now on Ultra.
**Cynik Lethal Ft. Hyjax**(Live-First Pgh Performance)
BC1 of a Kind
This is not a DJ Performance this will be done live
(Live at 1 Scene)
Phelan Barreiro aka Cynik Lethal is a music producer/artist based out of Pittsburgh, PA. He's known for his vicious dubstep tracks as well as his production in the rap music genre, having produced for groups such as the Wu-Tang's Pittsburgh affiliates the WuLords, as well as politically-themed rapper Jasiri X, female rapper Kellee Maize, party group Common Wealth Family, Coast to Coast Mixtapes artist Big Lyfe and more! He made his name by releasing the politically and socially charged Black History Project in 2006, which made him infamous and received rave reviews from industry vets such as DMC of Run DMC and Carlos "Tone Capone" Acosta. After releasing that project, he turned from the mic and began competing victoriously in producer battles such as Weapons of Mass Production and the Istandard Producer Showcase, during which time he focused primarily on producing for other artists. As of late, he's been collaborating with dubstep artists such as RSK and Statesthetic, creating groundbreaking music that crushes minds!!
HyJax, otherwise known as Zack Bombich, is among a surging wave of rising talent. Poised at the top of this influx, HyJax has released a veritable slew of dancefloor destroyers in his mere two years as a producer and DJ. Don't be fooled though - music is certainly not new to this Pittsburgh native, he grew up a drummer and spent a great deal of time producing alongside hip-hop artists as well as R&B musicians locally. This however, couldn't begin to sate his inherent, feral hunger for music. At the age of 18 Zack Bombich took up electronic production along with the moniker HyJax. Henceforth he committed himself to bass music, retaining a unique emphasis on the drums in his tracks. Drawing from a wide range of influences he's begun to really craft who he is as an artist, and as he's defined his sound he's likewise begun to define a niche for himself in the electronic music community. His sets employ a diverse spectrum of genres; everywhere between hard electro, contemporary dubstep, and the trap music that's begun to evolve onto the scene. You'd do well to keep your eyes out for his forthcoming releases as well as his inevitable innovation of dance music as he moves forward as a producer. There's a special kind of focus that some DJ's have for bringing something new to the table. It's a rare spark held by the likes of Diplo, Wolfgang Gartner, Bassnectar, and SebastiAn. Zack Bombich can most definitely be counted among these game-changing producers as well, and it's doubtless that the more he develops his own sound the more creativity he will invest in improving it in new ways.
**Moti**(Live-First Pgh Performance)

Slopes known only as Erli never as late is one of the best kept secrets in bass music right now. This young producer has spent years tightening up his craft and offering up music for several different projects with his first release in 2013 with durtysneakz on there debut EP as MOTI!!
