Billy Freekin Dee. In the beginning… there were turntables on a hardwood floor. DJ'ing for the first six months was done on the ground with a case of beer. Eventually he got a table and a mpc. Since he has release 2 mixtapes, produce 4 full length albums, win 2 DMC's and play hundreds of shows. He is now combining all of these experiences together to create one performance that you can dance to or sit back and enjoy..
Sam Derickson, aka Destro, can be thought of as the Zod mastermind. It is his vision that has led to the creation and inevitable evolution and mutation of Zod Records. He is also an impeccable DJ who started off spinning complicated techno and acid and eventually, after working tirelessly, has created a style that blends all types of music he wishes to put onto turntables, regardless of style or genre.
Just another deejay/internet personality. I've been deejaying for quite some time now. Blessed to be around the great people I'm around. It's all love. Playing almost every genre in a Midwest town near you.
Darren Keen, from Omaha Nebraska, has been a full time DIY touring musician for about 12 years. After playing in several different one man bands (The Show is the Rainbow, Touch People), he has decided to release all of his solo music using just his name. Darren is currently producing juke/footwork influenced 808 heavy bass music and composes minimalist experimental music using a variety of instruments. He has played with Battles, Prefuse 73, The Faint, Cursive, Man Man, Deerhoof, Neil Hamburger, and many others - Darren has released music on labels: Illegal Art, Retard Disco, and SAF Records.
Tombz are a trio from Milwaukee delivering original productions and remixes full of heavy, neck snapping beats and brooding dark bass.
MELT's creator and caretaker, The Demix's sound could be described as apocalyptic, cinematic, genre-defiant, darkly entertaining ear sex. Live looping and effects combined with digital DJ trickery. He is set to release his first 7 inch on Stagediver's Radiograffiti label this summer.
