ARDALAN - SF
Range, appeal and a massive dose of nasty, gritty bass are the three chief weapons every Dirtybird artist has in his quiver, but Ardalan seems to be the peak culmination of all those assets in one wieldy point. This young archer has had the incomprehensible luck to fall into crew with his idols, be reared by their best and given some of their most guarded musical secrets, then hoisted to a platform to blare his prodigious beats from places where most creators can only dream of being. Born in Tehran, Iran, Ardalan Noghre-Kar possesses a peculiar, fresh perspective on music genesis without even trying. His mixes, remixes and dubs are known for their sass, energy and wickedly wry samples that snap like a wet towel to the face, but his original tracks are where his efforts shine, like those released with Justin Martin-Mr. Spock, a 2010 party anthem charted by Diplo and Jesse Rose, and Lezgo, charted by Dog Blood (Skrillex and Boyz Noise)-and those soon-to-be-released on his own EP with Dirtybird. Its no wonder hes been given the nod by everyone from Papa Dirtybird himself (Claude Von Stroke) and A-Trak to those who are charting his remixes, like Maya Jane Coles, Audiojack, and Riva Starr, the last of whom he has an upcoming remix for to be released on Snatch. The greatest strength in Ardys music is his ability to whip out hits that work equally well from the dankest basements to the most opulent dancefloors; sounds that satisfy those with diverse tastes who can unite under his single agenda of having a good time.
THELEM - UK
Chapters, Orientis Records, Innamind Recordings, Osiris, Arkital
UK artist Thelem has secured himself as a humbling and experimental producer within the wide spectrum of electronic music. The genre morphing latest release Third Time Lucky features notable stylistic elements from dubstep, hip hop, grime, drum & bass and trap. His well crafted dynamics, choice instrumentation and considered beats bring an all together weighed and diversified direction for Thelem, focusing on a new characterizing flavor and distinguishing progressive sound.
The already recognized international touring from Thelem has seen him on appearance throughout Europe, Australia as well as intensive coverage in the USA. 2018 will see Thelem elaborate on an established underground fan base with an imposing touring schedule and impressive live performance ethic thats complemented by his modest attitude and raw passion for the music he sculpts.

ONHELL - SF
STYLSS, Terrorhythm, Deep, Dark & Dangerous, Astrophonica
"ONHELL" is a phonetic respelling of the Spanish pronunciation of angel and the first name of Los Angeles based composer, producer and DJ, Angel Rubio-Hale. ONHELLs releases on Plastician's Terrorhythm Recordings, Truth's Deep, Dark & Dangerous, and Fractures Astrophonica exhibit his range within the experimental bass music sphere.
Consistently exploring beyond the bounds of the prevalent, he skillfully integrates his influences and inspirations into compositions that are distinctly true to his originality. These skills are exemplified on his most recent EP Linden and the video he directed, produced and edited for the title track. ONHELL is currently working on commercial sound design projects, his next EP for Terrorhythm and will soon release the second installment of his remixtape series on Dome of Doom.
