Alan Bolton is an Irish digital artist residing in Tenerife, Spain. A freelance creative in all forms of mixed media, the photographer, videographer, graphic designer, and 3D artist isn’t tethered to any one particular medium. His style of surreal and abstract 3D artworks based heavily on combining elements from spirituality, technology, and nature into unique still-image and video artworks. He has been in the crypto art scene since November 2020 and has been building his name as a digital artist in the space, having his work published on a number of top art platforms.
A frequent mau5trap collaborator discovered by tagging the label in short augmented reality clips via Instagram, Alan found his rightful home with the label when they decided to bring him onboard to sharpen their visual branding efforts in the digital age. Over the course of 2020, Alan and mau5trap worked hand in hand on numerous campaigns.
Recently signed to Seven20 Management as the firm’s first-ever digital artist, Alan Bolton takes things one step further with his debut NFT drop in collaboration with fellow Seven20 artist, Jay Robinson.

From musical prodigy to industry trendsetter, Callie Reiff is unlike any other. As an accomplished producer, DJ, and all-around performer, she’s made history as the youngest DJ to perform at Webster Hall — since then, she’s taken the stage at festivals such as Creamfields, EDC Las Vegas, Tomorrowland, and Ultra and she’s opened for world-renowned acts including Ed Sheeran, Skrillex, and more. Now at 21 years old, Callie Reiff has aligned herself at the intersection of indie pop and electronic — the sky’s the limit for her career.
Callie enters 2021 with “The Kids Are All Rebels 2.0” in collaboration with Lenii, a record that sets the precedent for her electrifying indie-in-the-club signature sound. There’s a reason she’s gained global support from tastemakers such as BBC Radio 1’s Annie Nightingale, Rinse FM’s Marcus Nasty, and Diplo — each release exudes Callie’s bubbling, fearless energy and unrivaled character. In addition to her own tracks, Callie has knocked out dance floor-ready remixes for artists such as Alison Wonderland, SOFI TUKKER, TRACE, and more.
Recognized for her artistry by entertainment power players like Spotify and Teen Vogue, Callie’s journey continues: she spent 2020 in the studio with a handful of industry-leading artists such as Grabbitz and Audrey Nuna and joined SOFI TUKKER for a live stream residency to round out the year. Pushing forward, Callie’s ready to reveal the next era of her burgeoning career.

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. Between the clubs, radio, film and TV, and the Billboard Hot 100, Dawg’s paw prints have been left on records far and wide.
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.

The electronic producer moniker of Dino Lanni, from Cassino, Italy, based in London. He has a footprint in the dance and electronic world that stretches back over 20 years. He’s stayed true to his art and himself and therefore remained relevant but without becoming an obvious household name. Over the years he’s had releases on highly respected labels such as Ellum, Innervisions, Crosstown Rebels, Exploited, Yoshitoshi, Cocoon, and Dynamic. He’s also noted for remixing Underworld, INXS, Missy Elliot, Timbaland and collaborating with the Scissor Sisters, WuTang Clanto Madonna. Currently, he’s had a number of releases and collaborations with influential tastemakers such as Maceo Plex, Seth Troxler, Agoria, ARTBAT, Solomun and arguably the world’s real #1 DJ/producer Dixon. This, in turn, has led to an extensive DJ touring schedule.

With a sound defined by both the thrill of the future and potent nostalgia, Lamorn defies the boundaries of electronic music. At just 18 years old, Lamorn’s musical prowess knows no limits — he’s a bright-eyed multi-instrumentalist with the world at his fingertips. Those who seek warmth and exhilaration will find a home within Lamorn’s blossoming catalog, a collection of songs marked by radiant melodies and innovative electronic elements.
Once Lamorn kicked off his artist project in 2019, his captivating, contemporary sound made its way into the hearts of some of the most notable artists in dance music: Lamorn developed a friendship with deadmau5 thanks to tuning into his mau5trap Mondays live stream and submitting a demo for review. After exchanging music with one another for a couple of weeks, Lamorn submitted a production that moved deadmau5 so much that he decided to sign Lamorn on the spot — this event sparked a professional relationship between the two, resulting in Lamorn’s new home with mau5trap. What’s more, just before becoming involved with deadmau5 and his imprint, Lamorn submitted a remix for ATTLAS’ remix competition for his single “Half Light” featuring Alisa Xayalith — Lamorn won, which landed him a spot on the official remix EP for the single in 2020. To round out the year, Lamorn released an official remix of deadmau5 and Kiesza’s hit single “Bridged By A Lightwave.”
Lamorn enters 2021 with impressive co-signs from industry tastemakers and a steady momentum from 2020 – the story of Lamorn is just beginning.

An assiduously visceral journey deep into his core being, Maison Ware debuts his sinful Mind EP. The technical two-track display is available for streaming and purchase on Friday, February 28 via mau5trap.
Inviting listeners into his secret society through spell-like sounds, Maison Ware’s latest addition to his catalogue serves as a haunting exhibition of impressive midtempo mastery. Sultry sweet vocals juxtapose against a dark, fleeting bassline in the EPs namesake track, “Mind,” as Maison Ware weaves shadowy pathways into the brains deepest and darkest cavities. Laced with brooding tinges of tech-house flare, “Satisfy” yet again captivates with entrancing vocals. “Now you got me” reverberates over a nefariously oscillating bass-fueled backsound, as Maison Ware beckons the masses to join his society.
In addition to his impressive two-track EP, Maison Ware recently scored the film Spree, which premiered at Sundance 2020. Starring Stranger Things’ Joe Keery, Spree is a product of Drake’s production company Forest Hill Entertainment.
Maison Ware made his mau5trap debut on we are friends vol. 009 with “Shibuya,” a technical feat fueled by his various Japanese influences. Back now for his Mind EP, Maison Ware’s deviant sound still sees the authority of Tokyo’s towering lights and dark back alleyways of the Shibuya district. An enigmatic producer of no name, Maison Ware is all of us at once.

Brandishing a unique style of atmospheric dance music ranging from chilled house beats to dramatic, hard-hitting set pieces, Morgin Madison is a jack of all trades.

In 2020, Madison caught the attention of deadmau5, and soon thereafter found his rightful home at mau5trap. Early releases including his debut mau5trap single “Indigo” and subsequent Some Nights EP garnered high praise, paving the way for Madison’s debut LP, Living the Phantasm (April 2021). Born in a time of uncertainty, Madison’s Living the Phantasm is a testament to perseverance, and serves as the culmination of every musical influence that has defined his artistic life.

With a sound that embodies a rich, opulent atmosphere and a flawless touch in the studio, Ninajirachi is truly in her own lane. 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. Bouncy, unique, and full of life, Lapland features seven kinetic cuts that ooze Ninajirachi’s untouchable signature sound. Beyond her own releases, Ninajirachi has lent her savvy in the studio to remixes for artists including Flight Facilities, Anna Lunoe, Hermitude, and more.
To say Ninajirachi took 2019 by storm would be an understatement — she was March’s resident DJ on Mix Up on triple j, released her first sample pack with Splice, delivered guest mixes for BBC 1XTRA and Diplo & Friends, became the first Australian producer to be featured in Ableton’s One Thing, and even co-wrote and produced the official anthem for Australia’s Matildas in the FIFA Women’s World Cup. In the midst of all the madness, Ninajirachi released Water Gun / Stingray via NLV Records, which garnered a premiere from Mixmag.
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. Along with her festival appearances, she has supported artists including Mallrat, Crooked Colours, and Hermitude on tour. Propelling forward, Ninajirachi enters 2020 supporting What So Not on tour and gearing up for more new music to come. Standing tall as an immovable force within electronic music, the only way for Ninajirachi is up.

With an innovative sound that embodies darkness and grit through lush instrumentation, OddKidOut makes music for the underdog. Hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the 27-year-old multi-instrumentalist, DJ and producer has spent most of his life behind a drum kit, performing in a multitude of touring bands by the young age of 13. Having eventually swapped the drum kit for a finger drum controller and Ableton while still in his formative teenage years, OddKidOut’s unique brand of live, melancholy bass music was born.
The 2017 release of OddKidOut’s breakthrough OWSLA EP Solstice cemented him as a standout within the electronic music scene, garnering high praise from all corners of the industry. Since then, OddKidOut has released on some of dance music’s most exciting labels including BASSRUSH, Fool’s Gold, and Monstercat, where his single “Cinema” went on to become the title track for popular video game Rocket League. Now, the breakout artist looks to the future with his classic finger drummed, bass-infused soundscapes set to grace HARD Records.
OddKidOut is the amalgamation of his many influences, from metal to hip-hop to ambient, who’s fusing his penchant for percussion with moody electronic flare to create a sound uniquely his own. Ready to take on concert and festival stages across the globe with his high-energy live show, OddKidOut’s story is only just beginning.

Born and raised in the snowy city of Sapporo, Qrion began making her own sounds in high school as a hobby by using her phone. Taking inspiration from all the environments at her whim, Qrion’s signature sound oozes genuine artistry. She uses the noise of the world around her to create intimate songs anchored by energetic beats and lush synth textures. There’s a reason why she was named on Forbes Japan’s 30 Under 30 list: since the inception of her musical career, Qrion’s name has graced labels such as Anjunadeep, This Never Happened, Mad Decent, and more. Beyond her profound original productions, like her collaborative Sapporo EP with Spencer Brown and her solo debut Sine Wave Party EP via Anjunadeep, Qrion proves her mettle as an excellent remixer, too. She’s lent her future-focused sound to artists such as Alina Baraz, Lane 8, Andrew Bayer, TOKiMONSTA, and more to elevate a variety of songs across the spectrum of today’s hit music.
Ranging from soft, exquisite beats to ‘90s-adjacent dancefloor numbers, Qrion delivers a versatile flair to electronic music. Last year, Qrion took both her release and performance schedule to the next level: her self-released Waves EP explored the next chapter of her trademark sound while her Apple Music One Mix on Beats 1 took her talents across airwaves worldwide. Sharing the stage with Above & Beyond, Porter Robinson, and Tourist in previous years, 2019 saw Qrion join deadmau5’s Cube V3 Tour and perform landmark shows like ABGT350 Live from Prague, Anjunadeep’s London showcase at Printworks, and festival performances at NoisePop, Tomorrowland, and HARD.
Gaining momentum like never before at the beginning of 2020, Qrion touched down in cities across North America on tour with Spencer Brown and for festival appearances at EDC Mexico and Groove Cruise in Miami. Despite the global shutdown due to COVID-19, Qrion stayed connected with her audience: she’s performed a handful of live-streamed sets for events such as Mat Zo’s Stratosfest on Minecraft and Insomniac’s Day Trip showcase. In addition to her virtual performances, Qrion partnered with Spotify to curate Qrion’s track IDs, a regularly- updated playlist with more than 7,000 followers featuring her favorite tracks. To Qrion, innovation is key: her unwavering ability to remain close and connected with her community through music prevails despite the current limitations of the music industry.

Stepping onto the scene with an intoxicating signature sound and a spunky, future- focused state of mind, Speaker Honey represents the next generation of dance music. Capturing audiences one by one, Speaker Honey has concocted her unique musical touch throughout her entire life. She’s mastered the art of instruments including violin, piano, guitar, and more, leading her to synthesizers and Ableton, unlocking cutting-edge production at her fingertips. With a penchant for raw, heavy sounds, Speaker Honey channels the doom and gloom of late-night dance floors with fearless, energetic poise.
Though she’s spent years playing in bands and tinkering with countless tools to create her signature touch, Speaker Honey made her introduction through one of dance music’s most notable labels, mau5trap. Her debut single “Shoyu” was released on the label’s 2019 compilation, We Are Friends, Vol. 9, a perfect fit for the diverse, innovative nature of the record. Following her label debut, Speaker Honey has since released a handful of music with mau5trap exclusively, including her Night Visions EP, Super Future EP, and her latest Interrupted EP.
Armed with a killer discography and a fierce drive to create, Speaker Honey is all about moving forward. Along with her impressive release catalog, Speaker Honey has solidified her status as a performer too, joining direct support for labelmate No Mana’s ‘Secret Something’ tour and performing at the innovative RazerCon 2020 online festival. Speaker Honey’s brand transcends music, too: she debuted her collaboration with Infinite Future Gear in 2020 to represent her cutting-edge eye for fashion. For Speaker Honey, this is only the beginning — her metamorphosis from an industry newcomer to a trendsetter is happening in real-time.

27-year-old Spencer Brown creates forward-thinking dance music that defies quick-shifting industry trends. His sound ranges from melodic, euphoric house to darker, stripped-back techno, while always encapsulating his progressive flow.
After Above & Beyond discovered Spencer through his 2014 debut release “Chalice EP” on Avicii’s LE7ELS, Spencer released two full-length iTunes #1 albums, Illusion of Perfection  and Stream of Consciousness , both presented in continuous mixes. Meanwhile, his techno was signed by and received diverse DJ support from Sasha, Calvin Harris, FISHER, and countless other tastemakers.
After making his live debut at Avicii’s 2013 Hollywood Bowl show, Spencer was invited to tour across North America on Avicii’s True Tour. This extensive touring was done while studying Electrical & Computer Engineering at the prestigious Duke University, where he graduated with distinction in 2016 after publishing a thesis on omnidirectional loudspeakers.
Following up his opening for Above & Beyond’s colossal 2018 Common Ground tour, Spencer embarked on multiple mammoth international headline solo tours, showcasing his live brilliance mainly focusing on original productions.
Spencer’s relentless work ethic and production prolificacy, crystal clear vision, extensive A-List DJ support, and forward thinking compositions propel his unstoppable rise as he continues to deliver ambitious performances that can stand the test of time.

Before the Summer of 2021, it would have been all but impossible to describe Volaris‘ approach to dance music because he had yet to even publicly exist. But his Armada-backed debut, ”Through The Night” with Nightlapse and Nathan Nicholson, was all John Summit needed to hear before accepting him as the first artist to release on his newly minted imprint, Off The Grid Records, other than himself. As everyone is well aware, when an anonymous ID enters a tracklist of John Summit, there’s truly no preventing the hundreds of tweets calling for its release that inevitably pervade his Twitter notifications; this was what exactly happened after Summit shared a clip of him rinsing “Slow Motion” live from Ushuaïa Ibiza. The then-ID would go on to become a constant in Summit’s sets to this day. Volaris has since hiked his grand tally of original productions to 6, with “Tygar,” “Take Me Under,” “Purple Skies,” and “I’m So Weak” each trailing Volaris’ Off The Grid showpiece. His Spotify Wrapped infographic confirms that he’s accomplished more in six months than some artists are able to in a lifetime. It goes without saying that Volaris is about to move full steam ahead into 2023, with a massive show at Printworks, a remix for an “absolutely huge artist,” and a release schedule that’s packed all the way.
