Record labels responded quickly as well. Having Lektroluv Records as current home label, but other labels like Ultra Music USA, One Love Australia, Sony and Mixmash also claimed some of their dancefloor hits.
Riggi & Piros
Not wasting any time getting their careers started, the duo started DJing at just 16, and got into production at 17. After only a year of production they had their first Beatport/iTunes release with Clockwork’s “Surge” (Riggi & Piros remix) that charted in the Beatport Top 20, an accomplishment that takes others years to achieve. If anyone had doubts as to whether these two up-and-comers could achieve success in this industry, they were quickly put to bed in 2013. In that year the duo saw huge releases on Buygore Records including their breakout original mix “Taboo”, as well as their remix of Borgore, Waka Flocka Flame, & Paige’s hit “Wild Out” which garnered a spot on the remix EP released by Dim Mak Records.
His Signature Blend Of Jersey/Philly/Baltimore Club, Incorporating Aggressive Uptempo Rhythms With Soothing Pop And R&B Samples Give Him Extensive Appeal Across The Pop And Underground Spectrum.
THUGLI is Tom Wrecks and Pat Drastik, two DJ/Producers spearheading the trap movement by way of Toronto. Drastik, a former national Redbull Thre3style and DMC champion and Tom Wrecks, known for his popular remixes and Juno nominated production, formed THUGLI in the summer of 2012. The duo’s sound is best described as a hybrid of dirty south rap combined with a love of melodic builds and heavy synths. This unique and distinct take on the trap sound has made the two stand out in what is rapidly becoming a multi faceted genre. Their music has quickly gained the support of Industry heavyweights including Diplo, A-trak, Baauer ,Flosstradamus, Just Blaze, AraabMuzik and is receiving play from Diplo himself on his BBC Radio 1 show and in his sets. After having remixed for labels such as Maybach Music and Top Billin, and releasing numerous popular bootlegs, the two are scheduled to release their debut EP late Spring 2013.
