FREQ NASTY (U.S):
Darin McFadyen, known as FreQ Nasty, is an internationally renowned music producer and DJ considered a Breakbeat and Bass music pioneer. Born in Fiji, raised in New Zealand and formed musically in late 90s London, his ‘Boomin Back Atcha’ single was a defining moment in the global Breakbeat movement.
He has worked with artists including Santigold, Bassnectar, Switch, Fatboy Slim, Professor Green, Kelis, KRS One, Rodney P and Roots Manuva. His live sets blend mind-altering sonics and body moving subs that traverse forward thinking sounds across genres.
An extensively trained teacher in Tibetan Buddhist and Theravada meditation, he leads music based meditation, yoga, and sound healing experiences around the globe, most notably at North American art and music festivals such as Burning Man. His interdisciplinary body of work focuses on the conviction that music is a universal instrument of healing, connection, and a powerful catalyst for personal and collective transformation.

CHARLIE BROWN A.K.A OPTIMUS GRYME(N.Z):
Charlie Brown aka Optimus Gryme is a self taught producer who has been tapping away on beats for just over a decade. Over the last 2 years he has evolved into one of Aotearoa's leading Dubstep pioneers.
In 2008 he released NZ's first solo Dubstep EP Annihilation Of The Ego, as well as releasing Aotearoa's first Dubstep 12inch on his own imprint - Optimus Gryme Recordings.
Charlie's love for Dubstep has stemmed from his 10 year addiction to Drum n Bass and Jungle. Over the last decade Charlie has played a massive part in the NZ DnB scene; forming Offbeat Records back in 2002, hosting Roll TV which was NZ's first nationwide TV show dedicated to DnB, managing Concord Dawn's label Uprising Records, hosting the NZ DnB show on Kiwi FM and writing as DnB editor for Infusion Magazine.
Charlie has also been actively DJing since 1999; supporting many international acts including Black Sun Empire, Chase & Status and Outrage, as well as playing at some of Aotearoa's biggest parties; Groove in the Park, Deep, Hard & Funky and Phat, just to name a few
