Without doubt the biggest electro party in New York city is Girls and Boys – the 2000+ people party that features some of the biggest and most cutting edge names in dance music such as MSTRKRFT, Justice, Simian Mobile Disco, Vitalic, A-Trak, Crookers, Bloody Beetroots, Boys Noize, Rusko, Neon Indian and many, many more. Every Friday for well over 4 years, the Grand Ballroom at Webster Hall has been transformed into a packed room of electro kids, hands in the air in appreciation of the throbbing distorted bass and electronic beats that have altered the landscape of dance music in America over the last few years.

BARELY ALIVE

With 5 consecutive Beatport number 1s, millions of Soundcloud & YouTube plays in the last 12 months off the back of their lively social media interaction, and collaborations and remixes for Zomboy, Datsik, Excision, Destroid, Astronaut, Dodge & Fuski, Getter and more under their belt, few can deny that Barely Alive are one of the most exciting and fastest growing bass music acts to emerge over the last year.

The duo from Massachusetts USA initially made a name for themselves when they released their debut ‘Lost In The Internet’ EP through Disciple Recordings in late February 2014 to global acclaim, hitting the number one spot across 4 different genre charts on Beatport in just 24 hours. This made Barely Alive an over night success and to this date have been labelled as the second highest selling dubstep artist of 2014 on Beatport (One place behind Skrillex!) by Beatport themselves.

The touring soon followed across the United States and Europe with Barely Alive taking part in the first Disciple Alliance US tour and most recently embarking on the 2015 Datsik Ninja Nation tour along side Trolley Snatcha and Kennedy Jones. The guys have also gaining regular DJ support from acts such as Datsik, Excision, Pegboard Nerds, Far Too Loud and Zomboy, as well as making regular appearances on huge online music platforms such as UKF, EDM.com, This Song Is Sick and most recently, a guest mix for the infamous BBC Radio 1.
This really is just the start for Barely Alive, who within their first year at Disciple have found themselves well on their way to becoming a future headline act.

DUBLOADZ

Dubloadz aka Dave Nardolilli is a producer who’s quickly proven himself a force to be reckoned with, shattering the idea of subgenres and turning the dubstep world upside down over the course of only a year. His sharp and hard hitting ‘Savage Wonk’ style boasts some serious musicianship, and quickly grabbed the attention of a lot of the power players in the electronic music world. Determined to make his mark in the scene quickly, he showed the world how much can be accomplished in a short ammount of time. 2014 proved to be a successful first year with releases on SMOG, Rottun and Never Say Die as well as bookings across the globe. His high energy sets show his attention to detail and cover a spectrum influenced by everything from hip hop and funk to hardcore and metal. With support from 12th Planet, Datsik, Excision, Figure, Eptic, and many more, there’s no disputing that Dubloadz got that meat game on lock. ‘I can only hope to inspire people. I love what I do and I want people to realize they can make their dreams happen as well.
