Pronounced “Shay”, XIE will soon be known as a force to be reckoned with. Singer, songwriter, DJ, designer, producer, and painter, this Los Angeles based multi-talented threat has caught the attention of many. In the short time since her debut in 2017, XIE has been exceeding all expectations. After the success of singles “Super 8”, “Drip”, and “Habits” all helped land her spots in the lineups of some of the biggest festivals of the season, it’ll be exciting to see what new doors will open for her!
Better known as graves, Christian Mochizuki has spent the past three years releasing one fire track after another.

In 2019 we love a badass, and GG Magree is the girl setting the bar.

GG is also the proud founder of her creativity promoting streetwear brand, ‘YEAH PUSSY’, where she also encourages freedom of expression. With vocals reminiscent of Halsey and MIA, GG Magree is definitely a master of evoking an emotional response, and the world is ready for her to put us in our feelings.
House and Bass artist Chris Lorenzo has been making the floor shake since 2013, and established a name for himself in the UK before breaking out in The States. With his international tour starting in May and ending in September, Lorenzo’s career is sure to reach new heights. Collaborative release “Concentrate” earlier this year teases the promise of a bass heavy future, and Chris Lorenzo is just the one to take us there.
With a background in classical music, Sober Rob brings something new to the table. Often playing an electric viola during his sets, the American DJ displays his diversity in skills and genres.

Kicking off the albums Summer tour at EDC, Sober Rob will be playing performances at other big name events such as Bonaroo and Burning Man, so make sure you catch one!
UK native Will Clarke first made a name for himself in 2016 with the release of his single “Booty Percolatin’”. Since then he’s been hard at work and has released five singles this year alone. Signed to Dirtybird Records, Will Clarke has risen up through the ranks and come out on top. His tour this Summer will surly be filled with mindblowing surprises that you won’t want to miss!
