party people keep asking us to throw a big here it is!

DJ Magic Mike & Jimmy Joslin
Central Florida two by four
Restless/BMG, Royal Productions

For over a decade Magic Mike's approach to hip-hop has spawned several certified Gold and Platinum records. In fact, he was the first artist in history to have an instrumental LP reach certification. This onetime Godfather of Bass is a pioneer and innovator who along with his partner in crime, Florida regular Jimmy Joslin, knows exactly what a crowd wants and promises to raise the roof.

DJ Feadz
from the Mr. Oizo Project

Paris, France
F Communications

Haven't heard of Mr. Oizo? Where's your zip code, a cave! Trust us, you know the infectious jam "Flat Beat". Electronica made for the cutie pie dog puppet Flat Eric to dance to. The album's scratching and production credits belong to turntablist DJ Feadz who can also drop a rockin' mix of electro and house.

Michael Dog
London, UK
Megadog, Planet Dog Records

Founding member of the highly respected UK party organization Club Dog. His djing style is a mixture of uplifting trance and nu energy that's designed to appeal to a broad cross section of electronic music fans since he regularly plays around the world to many different crowds.

Angel Alanis
Contaminated, Missile, Moody

In just a few short years Angel has gained recognition as one of Chicago's most consistent producers with a flow of releases ranging from hard house to minimal techno. As a world class dj he mixes these sounds and more for dancefloor intensity, with a few tricks on the side.

San Francisco
Phunckateck, Pnuema

There's a posse out West that's taking names and kicking some ass. They're called Phunckateck and Madison is next on their hit list. Serious drum and bass is their bizness and one of the crew's most influential players is coming to dish it out with an arsenal of vinyl and skills.

Tron - (un)lie-v

ALL original, unreleased, and unheard material presented in a mutation between the dj and live PA concept; both and neither. Be among the first to witness the (d)evolution. Haunting industrial hardcore that cannot be heard at any other point in time or space. Psalms to the inner-tortured.

Jevon Jackson
Music 101, Mad Bar

A veteran of the Chicago underground scene whose roots go back to the old school. Behind the decks he preaches to his audience with deep soulful house music that will make your spirits soar. Madison prepare for lift off.

Deceptikon Unit

It's all a state of mind when this guy rolls into the audio depot.

D.V.S. 1
Hush, B.I.A.

Starting the night out right with banging techno Naughty North style.


Light - Sound - Dimension

illumination: No event is complete without the sensory overload of a good light show. It takes quality programming and the latest gear to make you go wow. Light Fantastik has what it takes and they've been dazzling crowds throughout the Midwest on a consistent basis.

audio: Minneapolis is renowned for its massive walls of sound and the techs at Slamhammer have been upholding the honor with one of the purple city's most ferocious systems. Massive subs and flown mid-highs in surround equals total audio asphyxiation. We will rock you!

video: A new concept in eye candy is coming; one that involves completely saturated walls and a stage full of screens. A mass visual frenzy to tickle your mind in a grand collaboration of some of the arts best - Brain Farmer, Koala Bear, and Lucid.

tickets available day of event only / doors open at 9pm
