Diplo: Diplo, Diplodocus, Wes Gully, and Wes Diplo are all pseudonyms of Wesley Pentz, a Philadelphia-based producer and DJ. Together with DJ Low Budget, he runs Hollertronix, a club and music collective. In addition to his solo career, he has worked with British-based singer and artist M.I.A.. The two were also romantically involved. Pentz's alias, short for Diplodocus, derives from his childhood fascination with dinosaurs.

As a DJ, Diplo is characterized by his eclectic, often 80s-oriented mashups, mixtapes, and live sets. On his full-length solo effort, Florida, however, his sound is closer to sample-based cinematic instrumental hip hop, like the work of DJ Shadow.

Born in Mississippi and raised across the southern United States, Diplo picked up much of the local culture while growing up there. Music styles such as dirty south, crunk and Miami bass are now key ingredients of Hollertronix's output. Pentz's solo work is also influenced by Southern Gothic and other southern literature. Additionally, world music is a strong musical influence on Diplo, especially baile funk, which he encountered whilst traveling in Brazil.

Diplo is signed to the Ninja Tune-imprint Big Dada. In 2006, he started his own label, Mad Decent, signing Brazilian baile funk group Bonde do Role.

Zedd: Anton Zaslavski, known primarily by his stage name Zedd, is a Russian-German electronic music producer and DJ

Paper Mache: In a culture of predictability and contrived emotion, honesty is the currency by which art is valued. Paper Mache has built its reputation on lyrical substance and continues to build a national fan base through extensive touring and inventive promotion. This Washington-based five-piece creates a continually evolving sound that embraces the acoustic sparsity of acts like Bright Eyes as well as the rich textures of bands like Death Cab for Cutie and Brand New. Paper Mache is currently touring in support of their full-length album "Easier to Lose," a collection of songs that challenge the definition of struggle, success, life, and loss. The album shows a promising maturity and flirts with a polished sound most indie bands fear. Out of necessity, the band has done everything so far DIY. Self booking and promoting more than 200 shows in 26 states over the last year alone. A new EP is tentatively planned to be released Fall of 2008, followed by a new LP in January of 2009.

DJ Shadow: Since debuting in the early '90s, DJ Shadow has become one of hip-hop's most in-demand producers and spinners. Known for his experimental hip-hop beats, he combined trip-hop with beats to become our generation's most innovative DJ. He is about to release his fourth album, The Less You Know, The Better, later this year and will hit the road for a nationwide tour. Don't miss a date on the DJ Shadow concert schedule (2011); Use Eventful as your source for DJ Shadow tour dates and venue information.

DJ Shadow's career blew up after being the featured DJ at UC Davis. In fact, the term trip-hop was attributed to DJ Shadow during his tenure at the college campus. DJ Shadow released remixes and mixtapes throughout the '90s until putting out his first LP, Endtroducing…., in 1996. It made the Guinness Book of World Records for being the "First Completely Sampled Album" and is ranked by Time magazine as one of the "All-Time" 100 Best Albums. He continued to deejay and release mixtapes until putting out his sophomore album, The Private Press, in 2001.

In 2006, DJ Shadow put out his hotly anticipated collabo album, The Outsider, which featured rappers such as Mos Def and David Banner. DJ Shadow is currently in the lab finishing up his fourth album, The Less You Know, The Better, which is due out in September. In the meantime, you can catch DJ Shadow on the road. DJ Shadow tour dates are currently booked throughout the US. Stay on top of this innovative DJ Producer and use Eventful to receive updates and alerts about DJ Shadow tour dates.
