Fredrik Sundberg, better known by his name Anevo, is unquestionably one of SwedenÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s most promising up and coming artists of 2015. Hailing from a small town in Sweden called Sandviken, this multitalented sensation was once again tracked down by HBTÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s resident Swede, Samet Ã�ï¿½zcelik, and weÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½re more than delighted to introduce you all to the one and only Anevo.
In early 2014, AnevoÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s career really took off when groove maestro Kryder discovered him through his astonishing production called Walter White, and went on to release his own edit of the track. Fast-forward to spring of that year: suddenly AnevoÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s being streamed all over the web, and heÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s landed himself a well-deserved spot performing at Insanity Festival in JÃ�Â¶nkÃ�Â¶ping, Sweden, listed on the same lineup as house legend Steve Angello.
MusicÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s always been a part of AnevoÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s life, but his journey really started back at age 4 when he learnt how to play the piano. He went on to master the guitar as well, and after a while he eventually discovered the world of electronic music. He immediately fell in love with the craft and started producing in 2009, but it wasnÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t until 2012 that he felt he seriously got a handle on his style.
With releases on Dutch imprint SpininÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ Records, remixes for the likes of Avicii, and a huge collaboration alongside Tiesto, American EDM producer and DJ KSHMR has had quite a productive 2015 to say the least.
His ascension to the top is even more impressive considering Niles Hollowell-Dhar has only been releasing music under his KSHMR alias since 2014. Before then he was one half of hip-hop production duo The Cataracs alongside David 'Campa' Benjamin Singer-Vine.
2015 finally saw the LA-based producer breakout from his hip-hop roots and into the world of EDM, and it was his collaboration, Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½SecretsÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½, alongside Dutch heavyweight Tiesto that was the catalyst to putting his new alias on the map. That success then saw the LA-based producer play his first live show at the Fonda Theatre in LA alongside Bassjackers and newcomer Yogi.
Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½This year has gone better than I ever hoped for,Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ KSHMR tells DJ Mag. Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½'Burn' with DallasK really opened the door for me, and from there I had the honour of collaborating with Tiesto on 'Secrets', which became the biggest release of my career so far.Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½
Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Music aside, Tiesto introducing me for the first time at Ultra 2015 in Miami was one of the most surreal experiences of my life,Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ he continues.
As well as high-flying collaborations and remixes, KSHMR also found time to release 'Jammu' Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ his most personal track to date. It pulled in a host of influences, including those from his Indian heritage, into a giant EDM melting pot.
With support from the scene's biggest names, KSHMR is showing all the signs of becoming one of the USÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s biggest EDM stars to date.
Dimitri Vegas & Like MikeÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s path from celebrated DJs to dominating the electronic music scene has been a constant, upward trajectory. This year saw the duo claim the prestigious #1 position in DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll, voted for by fans worldwide and smashing records as the first ever duo to scoop the prize.
Whether wreaking havoc across Europe, Asia, Australia, North or South America, ripping up the music charts with immense studio releases, cutting huge remixes for the A-list elite or playing their part in the incredible rise of the Belgian mega-festival Tomorrowland, the award-winning brotherly duo have now become the leading lights in the new wave of international dance music currently taking the planet by storm.
Their electrifying live combination of DJ sets and crowd-busting MCing has propelled them towards party notoriety, scooping the hotly contested Best Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Breakthrough ActÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ award at the 2013 International Dance Music Awards (IMDAs) and back to back Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Best European DJÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½sÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ awards in 2014 & 2015, as well as being two-time winners of the MTV EMA for Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Best Belgian ActÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ and BeatportÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Artist of the yearÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ 2014 after ten #1 Beatport hits and counting including Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½MammothÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½, Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½TremorÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ and Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Eat, Sleep, Rave, RepeatÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ amongst their many classics.
Picking up heavy support from top industry figures like AppleÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s Beats 1Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½s host Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½s Pete Tong and Danny Howard, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have fast become one of the go-to acts for major recording artists from remixing Lady Gaga, over to scoring edits for everyone from Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull, Snoop Dogg, Sean Paul, Ne-Yo and plenty more.
With their unique arena-smashing brand of entertainment the duo have become constant headline features at the planetÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s biggest and most prestigious stages week in, week out, including holding residency at the luxurious Hakkasan Las Vegas since the beginning of 2015. The pairing have also held down one of the most in-demand residencies in recent Ibiza memory, taking over the Amnesia Terrace for every Sunday with their unique Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½House of MadnessÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ party, merging together a truly manic party concept of the SummerÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s biggest anthems and DJÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s including Diplo, Steve Aoki, Steve Angelo, Fat Boy Slim, Yves V, Wolfpack and Chuckie.
From legendary clubs like Pacha Ibiza and NYC to Mansion in Miami, LondonÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s Ministry of Sound and BrazilÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s #1 epic Green Valley club, to festival main stages including Mysteryland, EDC Las Vegas, EDC UK, Ultra Music Festival, and Creamfields plus many, many more, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike regularly illuminate the top billboards of the hottest tickets around including most prominently, the worldÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s biggest and best festival Tomorrowland of which the duo have been official residents of for over 5 years, bringing their killer anthems to a main stage audience of hundreds of thousands yearly.
Whilst their presence across the arena circuit is something to behold and testament to this statement is the soaring number of views that their first ever solo Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Bringing Home The MadnessÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ event has achieved to date with over 21 million YouTube views and counting, whilst the event itself sold over 36,000 tickets making it Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½one of the countryÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s most impressive showsÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½, and later aadded a second chapter with three massive sold-out arena spectacles in Belgium & Mexico City. In 2015 the brothers broke records again when all 40,000 tickets for their next run of Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Bringing The Madness 3.0Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ shows at Belgium's most legendary venue - Sportpaleis Antwerpen - sold out in under 40 minutes; a feat previously only managed by legendary names such as U2, Madonna, BeyoncÃ�Â©, and Michael Jackson, leading the pair to add another date due to phenomenal demand from their legions of fanatic fans.
The pick-up from the overwhelming fan support that they generate is as impressive as both their touring and release schedules, with the duo amassing 7.1 million Facebook likes, over 2 million Twitter followers collectively, 1.5 million Instagram fans and in excess of 250 YouTube views across their videos, the global phenomenon of the brothers is undeniable. Their smash hit Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½The HumÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ also netted them the #1 single spot in their native Belgium going platinum, a feat that was repeated just a few months later with their Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Higher PlaceÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ collaboration penned with R&B superstar Ne-Yo, which spent an astonishing 10 weeks atop the singles chart in their home country Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ and also picked up a trend as one of the most Shazamed tracks at numerous festivals that include Tomorrowland, TomorrowWorld, Ultra Music Festival and Creamfields.
Never ones to slow down, their crowning position at #1 in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs Poll will only see the duo propelled to even greater heights. Their relentless drive to continually provide their solid and loyal fanbase with even greater and more exciting shows, music, and madness, is likely to see Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike ascend even beyond the top tier of the electronic music scene. Their appeal and genuine love for what they do has been behind the impressive accolades the brothers have received so far, and theyÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½re only just getting started.

Jon Gooch aka Feed Me & Spor is a rare electronic artist with an eclectic and diverse ability to experience a career as 2 very different alter egos. Starting his days in the tiny sweatboxes of drum n bass raves as Spor, Jon Gooch built up a loyal following and evolved into the colorful character that is Feed Me.

With his unique brand of hard-hitting, bass-heavy electronica, his first EP for the label in 2010 garnered him international acclaim.

Jon is not only a musician but an artist and has built his musical empire from a world of creativity and imagination. From the bright colors of Feed MeÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s monster planet to the darkness of Spor, everything Jon does comes from a different world.
In 2012 Jon decided to really elevate things with Feed Me building a colossal teeth structure, which has travelled the world, including closing out Fuji Rocks, following the incredible Bjork.

In the last year, London-based producer Ilan Bluestone has gone from unknown newcomer, to one of the most promising new acts on the international dance music scene.
He discovered his love for music at an early age by self-teaching guitar and keyboard, which resulted in a passion for that 'progressive' sound he builds on today.

Dutch DJ / producer Don Diablo was born and raised in Holland and is currently working on rapidly expanding his discography in between his global touring schedule. After scoring multiple top 5 hits on Beatport with records like "AnyTime", "Starlight" and "On My Mind" he also became an in demand remixer. His current portfolio includes names like Madonna, Ed Sheeran, Rudimental and many others. Besides this Don has collaborated and produced for artists like Kelis, Alex Clare, Example, Dragonette and Tiesto to name a few.
Earlier this year he launched his "HEXAGON" record label, the first release, Don's remix of Alex Adair's "Make Me Feel Better", held the no. 1 position on Beatport for over two weeks. An obvious dream start for a label with a great future ahead. Warner Brothers also asked Don to create the worldwide theme song for the highly anticipated Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Batman Arkham OriginsÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ game. The track and the accompanying video became an instant viral hit racking up millions of Youtube plays.
Don's firm radio support in tastemaker countries like the U.K. and the U.S.A. introduced the Dutchman to a wider audience this year. His own HEXAGON radio show is currently aired in over 35 countries and holds a solid top 10 position in the iTunes podcast section every week, thus reaching millions of people across the planet. In October 2015, during the annual DJMag Top100 awards, Don was awarded with the "highest climber of the year" prize, moving 52 places up the list from 82 to 30.
His packed travel schedule rockin' nearly every major club and festival around the world as well as his residency at Vegas superclub "Hakkasan" are also evident proof of his ever growing worldwide fan base. Don's many other passion projects like directing music videos, working on movie soundtracks and setting up his own fashion brand make it even more clear that it is safe to assume you can expect to hear a lot more from the ambitious Dutchman in the years to come.
They donÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t care about genres. They donÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t care about smartness. They donÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t care about the things you care about. Dada Life just want to make you jump up and down. Then make you crash into a wall with a smile on your face.
The formula has been a winner since the start. In summer 2006 Dada Life released Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Big TimeÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ and DJ:s all over got their first take on the duo. Since then there has been a steady stream of records: Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½The Great Fashionista SwindleÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½, Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Vote YesÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ and Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Fun Fun FunÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ as well as the full length album Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Just Do the DadaÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½. Dada Life have also remixed artists such as Laidback Luke, Alex Gopher and Dan Black/Kid Cudi.
The tunes are played by everyone from Crookers, Eric Prydz and Benny Benassi to David Guetta, as well as featured on tons of compilations. TiÃ�Â«sto quickly understood how to Do the Dada Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ and the duo played before him on his massive USA-tour 2009 (as well as some dates this year).
2010 is going to be massive for the duo with planned tours in USA and Australia, as well as gigs at the big European festivals. Also expect tons of new tracks and remixes. The album Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Just Do the DadaÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ is released and done. Good, because Dada Life are hungry again.
As DJ:s Dada Life always have a little extra in their record bag. They constantly produce their own remixes/edits (Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Guerilla FartsÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½!!!) of good tunes in order to have something unique to play. (And when they get bored with the tunes, the mp3:s end up somewhere on the netÃ¢ï¿½Â¦) Just give them a few bottles of cheap champagne and a box of bananas and they keep going.
And remember: destroy dance music and have fun. DonÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t look back in the past. Always go forward. DonÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t think too much. Always follow the money.
Asaf Borger, aka Borgore, is something of a musical chameleon. He started his music career young, first becoming a classically trained musician Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ he frequently lists Bach, half-jokingly, as one of his favourite musicians of all time Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ before joining deathcore band Shabira in his formative years. In videos of the band performing he looks out of place, a gawky, shaved-headed figure in a group of bearded, long-haired rockers.
While he might have since left the band and moved from his hometown of Tel Aviv to the US, elements of his heavier musical past have remained a feature of his productions.
Borger describes his music as GorestepÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ a fusion of EDM, dubstep and heavy metal that unites his earlier influences with his newfound passion for brash, in-yer-face electronic music.
In 2012, Borger collaborated with Miley Cyrus on the single Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½DecisionsÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ the song is often described as a turning point in Miley CyrusÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s musical transformation. The single catapulted Borgore into the spotlight and proved he could bring Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½GorestepÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ to the masses.
They Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½donÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t give a f*ck about tomorrowÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ or the boundaries of the EDM genre.
Teaming up in their hometown, Vlaardingen, in 2004, Mitchell Vreeswijk and Jan Stadhouders formed LNY TNZ with the shared passion of putting a new twist on hard hitting EDM. The group rapidly made a name for themselves, as they released underground tracks that evolved the genre into something entirely in and of its own.
They quickly became pioneers in Dutch music as a DJ tandem, known for their unique sound. Support from other leading artists came pouring in as LNY TNZ tracks appeared on numerous compilation CDs and received radio play worldwide. After mixing their second official compilation CD in 2007, LNY TNZ toured at major festivals and events around the globe, emerging as a leader in the scene.
Following a string of tours, Mitchell and Jan took a break to study, travel, and work on other art forms, including film directing. In 2012, they came up with a new round of music. LNY TNZ recorded several underground bootlegs and released them online to the support of their fans and major artists, who welcomed the duo back from hiatus.
In 2013, LNY TNZ presented their single Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Last Night EverÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ with Yellow Claw from the forthcoming collaboration EP Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½All Your Bass.Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ The hit was released by Sony BMG and Dim Mak, along with a popular video that takes place over a full tilt night in Tokyo.
LNY TNZ are now here to stay, currently working on more major collaborations and putting out new music that will continue to push and the boundaries of their unique combination of hardstyle, trap, and EDM.
International DJ, charting producer, in-demand remixer, Beatport Music Awards nominee, Olivier Giacomotto is a proven integral player of the electronic music scene. He first got into production in 1999 working as producer assistant at Townhouse Studios in London, then went back to France with enough experience to start a career of music composer. His tireless need to evolve and grow as creative entity and forward thinking artist always forced this Paris based composer to constantly seek a new musical excitement. Therefore Olivier naturally crossed musical genres and trends always keeping an eye on the original definition of the underground.
In the last 10 years, he progressively found his path into techno, house, electro, tech-house, deep house, and forged his success with constant appearances in the highest ranks of the Beatport charts, the biggest online music store specializing in electronic dance music. His own solid productions and few special collaborations with major artists such as John Acquaviva, Umek, or Popof, have been released on famous labels like Get Physical, Suara, Noir Music, Definitive Recordings, Plus 8, Great Stuff, Toolroom, or Knee Deep In Sound.
On stage and in front of a crowd, Olivier gradually earned the trust of the most famous venues demonstrating his talent with an undoubtable versatility, and adaptability, always injecting groove and funk inside an inspired blend of electronic flavors. For that reason his name appeared as headliner of major events around the world such as Privilege in Ibiza, Rex Club in Paris, Ministry of Sound in London, Womb in Tokyo, Fabric in Madrid, Pacha in Sao Paulo, Weekend in Berlin, X2 in Jakarta, Zona in Moscow, Sensation White in Cali, or Kabbalah Festival in various cities of Brazil, to name a fewÃ¢ï¿½Â¦
His unwavering determination to push boundaries sets him apart from the others and his creativity span far beyond the music thatÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s brought him to international acclaim. Between the hits, Olivier composed several songs for mainstream artists and regularly sells tracks for top-selling video games or Hollywood box office movies : the multinational developer and publisher Rockstar Games licensed four of his tracks for their racing game Midnight Club Los Angeles. Olivier also produced for pop and reggae artists Terry Lynn and Tom Frager. One of his productions for Terry Lynn titled Ã�Â«StoneÃ�Â» was licensed for the soundtrack of Hollywood box office hit Ã�Â«Date NightÃ�Â» with Steve Carell, Tina Fey, and Mark Wahlberg, and Ã�Â«Give Me That LoveÃ�Â», coproduced with Tom Frager on the major global music company Universal, have been charted during 2 weeks in the French TOP50 selling thousands of Singles and albums. Always a step ahead, Olivier recently showed once again his unique ability producing an entire movie soundtrack for the US film Ã�Â« The Red Man Ã�Â».
Partner of the iconic John Acquaviva, they currently co-run the independent music label Definitive Recordings. Launched originally in 1991 by John Acquaviva, Richie Hawtin and Karl Kowalski, Definitive established the housier side of the electronic empire that Hawtin and Acquaviva started with Plus 8 Records in 1990. DefinitiveÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s style of house music was the dominant sound of mid-west North America, being played in raves and after-hours parties everywhere. History has been kind and holds in high regard seminal anthems like Ã�Â« House 4 All Ã�Â» by The Blunted Dummies, Ã�Â« Do Da Doo Ã�Â» by Robotman and Ã�Â« Get House Ã�Â» by Calisto, with the tracks still getting heavy play and licensing action from the industryÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s leading lights. After a hiatus in the late 90s, John Acquaviva relaunched Definitive in 2005 including Olivier Giacomotto as his main artist and partner, giving focus to seeking and presenting the latest emerging sounds and talent to the world via a reputable, consistent, and trust-worthy platform.
In recent times Shiba San has garnered a lot of positive attention from every corner, with one foot in his hip hop past and the other embracing the future of house he has found a comfortable collision of the two in bass heavy ghetto funk. And associations with both Claude Von StrokeÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s Dirtybird label and AMINE & DanceÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s Cuff certainly havenÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t hurt.
His recent release Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½OkayÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ effortlessly became a contender for our 2014 summer soundtrack, and itÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s currently making some serious rounds on the club circuit, shooting straight to the top on BeatportÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s House chart and coming in at numero 3 on the overall rankings provides Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½ a clear indicator of the power behind this low slung rumbler. As if hearing the track yourself wouldnÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t confirm that!
ItÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½s fair to say that Shiba San is primed and ready to blow. You canÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½t escape the feeling that this could be the start of something big.
Tiga is musical evolution personified, with an unparalleled resumÃ�Â© that includes two solo albums (Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½SexorÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ and Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Ciao!Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½), singles such as Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Sunglasses at NightÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½, Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½Pleasure from the BassÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½, Ã¢ï¿½ï¿½You Gonna Want MeÃ¢ï¿½ï¿½ and numerous collaborative projects - including his work with Zombie Nation under the ZZT monikor, with Matthew Dear under Tiga vs Audion.
