New York-based electronic producer & DJ Callie Reiff is just getting started with her self-made music career, having previously released music on OWSLA’s NEST HQ imprint, A-Trak’s renowned Fool’s Gold label, Ultra Records, & most recently Universal Music. In only a short time, she has already taken NYC by storm performing across major club venues & building a strong foundation within the club circuits.
Her early experiences in the New York City Ballet’s ‘The Nutcracker’ at 7 years old proved an instant love & attraction with music & performance. Becoming a self-taught drummer watching and learning from YouTube tutorial videos by the age of 10, Callie three years later enrolled in acclaimed NYC electronic music production & DJ School Dubspot, having her first lesson mixing vinyl under the guidance of JP Solis. All while moving forward in her modeling career with NEXT models, gaining global profile with aligned brands such as H&M, American Eagle, Converse & Beats by Dr Dre, as well as editorial spreads for Vogue, Milk & Teen Vogue.
Having reached almost one million streams on Spotify, Callie’s thrilling debut release “Tin Machine” via NEST HQ in 2016 displayed a trendsetting talent within the electronic soundscape. Just a couple months later, she returned to the limelight with her inaugural EP ‘Shadow Dancing’ through A-Trak’s Brooklyn-based Fool’s Gold Records, including her original title track & a jaw-breaking collaboration with KANDY. The following year she cemented her ability in crafting bass-backed beats & laser-beaming riffs, with
her 2017 self-released single “Stimulate”. Chiming in elements of live electronica, drumbeat, & ethereal sound design, Callie is a production powerhouse in the making.
Within this time, Callie has gained global support from the likes of Radio 1’s Annie Nightingale, Diplo and Rinse FM’s Marcus Nasty, while touring New York’s most prominent music venues Output & Terminal 5. Reiff has also made history by becoming the youngest DJ at 15 to have graced the stage at the renowned Webster Hall, opening for Skrillex, Zedd, Ed Sheeran, Wolfgang Gartner & more.
Notable achievements include fronting Spotify’s ‘Women of Electronic Music’s’ Playlist for Women’s History Month, as well as delivering remixes for Sofi Tukker, Kayzo, & Ultra Records, as well as being named one of Teen Vogue’s ‘10 female artists who are changing the music game’, displaying her ability to merge both industries together to succeed in a mainstream climate.
2018 has been a phenomenally successful year, with highlights including opening Tomorrowland festival in Belgium, playing a guest mix on Rinse FM alongside Skream, touring with Ghastly as part of his North American run, and capping off the year being part of the official remix album pack for Alison Wonderland with her track ‘No’. As Reiff prepares to fully launch her self-made name in the limelight, this left field artist is set to take the path less taken in 2019 fronting the Tommy Hilfiger ‘Make It Possible’ campaign & recently signing with Seven20 Management, establishing the next phase of her professional career.
Over a decade of producing and spinning left-field dance music regularly rinsed by underground pockets worldwide has landed Clarian a following of unconventional music appreciators. With a penchant for experimenting and sampling different spaces and shaping them between hypnotic techno and synth pop, his productions surf on introspective synth hooks and spacey landscapes.
Cited as a producer’s producer, Clarian’s production contributions range from the volcanic emergence of Detroit’s Visionquest, to the surgical and darker spectrums of Life and Death, as well as creative techno fixtures like Turbo and Kompakt with his renowned 2017 and 2019 releases, “Ankh” and “Time Safari”.
Clarian’s pursuit of production and unconventional engineering techniques was inspired by his love of Science Fiction. Writers like John Brunner and atmospheric composers like Vangelis intertwine seamlessly with pioneer artists and labels like Kraftwerk and Mute, fueling his obsession with synthesizers and drum machines. These influences resonate overtly with open nods on his debut ambient-based synth pop album, “Television Days” released on Balance in 2018.
His impressive list of collaborations include visionaries like Tiga, with his extensive co-production and mixing on the “No Fantasy Required” LP for Ninja Tune’s Counter Records, as well as Guy Gerber and many more. The inspired musical friendship between Clarian and Guy led to engineering duties for 11:11, the brainchild of Guy and P. Diddy. Clarian has also served as a creative backbone and A&R for Seth Troxler’s indie label Soft Touch and helped to launch Play It Say It with the release of “Dinosaurs In Space” featuring Paul Ritch on remix duties. Most recently, he teamed up with Chicago sonic mastermind Felix Da Housecat to launch Founders Of Filth, a label steeped in his Montreal roots.
Clarian has toured extensively both live and DJ for over a decade festivals and club circuits globally with returning showcases at Movement Festival, ADE, Off Sonar Piknique Electronique, WMC and BPM to name a few. His live and DJ performances are a journey exploring both late night feels and peak time functionality, combining well crafted and precise mixing with dreamy and spacey noir brushes throughout. Years of honing 12-hour-plus DJ sets in Berlin’s more notorious electronic palaces has ignited and morphed Clarian’s storytelling behind the decks into a realm of its own.
His live sets are a canvas for unforgettable, emotive sunsets and late night melodic peaks. This was best displayed at Burning Man 2018, where Clarian performed an album of exclusively crafted and composed spaghetti western inspired electronic music live with a backing band. With Who Made Who on guitar and drums as well as an electric violinist, they performed live on Robot Heart during the Man Burn yielding an ethereal and cathartic experience.
Clarian’s musical universe resonates at a frequency of spacey, left-turns and interconnected pools of electronic bliss, melancholy and dystopian atmospheres. As we enter a new decade, his catalog continues to expand further to labels like Bedrock, leaving a unique trace for listeners and clubbers to freely follow, without the need to label it.
While the name may escape you, if you’ve got even a fingernail on the pulse of pop culture, you’ve almost certainly heard Dawg’s music before. In his other life as hip-hop producer, Dawg’s production, writing, and studio prowess have enabled him to assemble a group of elite collaborators that read like a who’s who of pop music.

Inspired by Los Angeles’ melting pot parties like Space Yacht and Brownies & Lemonade, Dawg’s sound is a hybrid of rap-ready beats meets festival energy. Known as “junkyard bass,” the premise is simple – take the club-appeal of rap beats, and put the energy on steroids.
Unleashed and unchained, Dawg exploded onto the scene with several million streams on a Post Malone remix. Since then, Dawg has released a constant stream of head-turning bootlegs, with the likes of EDM.com, Earmilk, Run The Trap, and Billboard amongst his loudest supporters.

Example isn’t reinventing himself, he is going back to what he is about He says: “Whenmy deal with Ministry of Sound ended after 3 albums, I signed to Sony. Me and the Sony execs then spent a lot of time thinking and talking about what “direction” I should be going in, and not much time releasing music.

The Australian triple-threat producer, songwriter, and DJ has built a career that encompasses the spectrum of electronic music, garnering praise from critics and notable artists alike. Ninajirachi moved the needle with her record-breaking debut single, “Pure Luck,” receiving recognition from all over the world. There’s a reason “Pure Luck” topped the Spotify Australia Viral charts and became 2017’s second most-played song on triple j — Ninajirachi’s musical aptitude reached audiences far and wide before she even had a chance to graduate high school.
Following the success of “Pure Luck,” Ninajirachi linked with fellow powerhouse producer and DJ Nina Las Vegas for their 2018 collaborative single, “Thursdays.” Noticing Ninajirachi’s next-level sound, Nina Las Vegas added the fast-rising producer to her label’s roster: Ninajirachi signed to NLV Records for the release of her debut EP, Lapland.

Beyond her work in the studio, Ninajirachi has performed at major Australian festivals including Splendour in the Grass, Field Day, Falls Festival, Listen Out, and more.
