Timothy Jude Smith, aka Timmy Trumpet, first caught his big break in Ibiza, playing live trumpet solos over tracks during DJ sets. Having supported artists such as Armin Van Buuren, Carl Cox, Fedde le Grand, Dizzee Rascal, and Fatboy Slim; Timmy Trumpet has become known internationally for his jazz elements in the global dance music realm. Now working as a DJ and instrumentalist, he is ranked in the top 3 Aussie DJs and has a formidable list of accomplishments including live shows at Pacha and WMC, mix albums for Ministry of Sound, and three #1 singles on the ARIA Club chart.
Born in Australia as Danny Chien, Wax Motif’s unique production style and fresh mixing skills have kept this rising producer in high demand. Continually wowing fans and industry insiders, his production efforts have drawn critical acclaim and support from the likes of Diplo, Tiësto, Tommy Trash, A-Trak, The Chainsmokers, Steve Aoki and more. Pioneering the g-house movement, Wax Motif has worked with Destructo to feature hip hop talents such as Ty Dolla Sign, Problem, and Kurupt among others.
Dirty South, aka Dragan Roganovic, has been on a journey to challenge the conventional mold in electronic music, shattering the modern day standard with genre-bending collaborations on his album With You. The two-time Grammy nominated producer has worked with world-renowned artists ranging from Alesso to Axwell, whom he shared a studio with to create their remix of “Sweet Disposition” by Temper Trap. Along with producing successful tracks, he has dominated the international touring circuit with headlining gigs at clubs and festivals like Omnia Las Vegas, Avalon Hollywood, Tomorrowland, and Creamfields to name a few.
