M.I.K.E. became captivated early on in his childhood with the synth-pop sounds of the 80′s, which were brought on by band icons such as Depeche Mode and legendary synth master Jean Michele Jarre. His plans to follow in their footsteps and bring dance music to a different level didn’t fall short when he went on to release one of his timeless anthems, ‘Universal Nation’ followed by ‘Strange World’!
Welcome to the world of Beat Service – a world where that unique Beat Service sound takes control and dominates Dance floors, Festivals and huge events!Madis Sillamo aka Beat Service has been firing up a string of Top ten hits on the Beatport Trance Top 100 for the last three year with “Not This Time”, Fortuna”, “Outsider”, “Charged”, “Solo”, “Cut and Run”, “Impulse”, “Mars” and “But I Did” among the many while remixing some of the major forces in the scene: Armin van Buuren, Markus Schulz, Susana, George Acosta, Lange, Rex Mundi, Moonbeam all the way to the UK number 1 single “Infinity” by Guru Josh!
Grube & Hovsepian
As the saying goes, two heads are better than one – a maxim keenly demonstrated by the success of Tim Grube & Mike Hovsepian’s studio & spinning union. Grube & Hovsepian came into existence in 2008 when – having heard Markus Schulz dropping his tracks on his Global DJ Broadcast show – Tim made contact with Mike. As A&R for Schulz’s record label, Tim had locked onto the intrinsic Coldharbour themes in Mike’s productions. A like-mind recognized, he proposed a new partnership for the pair. It’s one that has subsequently seen them bring their productions – ‘City of Angels’ and ‘Venom’ among them- to the sound-systems of some of the world’s most celebrated clubs and events. These have included stateside home-runs at LA’s Avalon, Miami’s Mansion, and main-stage wowing performances at European arena events, including the mighty Transmission.

Gent & Jawns
After developing respectable solo careers as DJs and producers, long-time friends Billy the Gent and Long Jawns officially banded together as Gent & Jawns becoming an unstoppable force in the world of club music.

When first introduced to electronic dance music, Butch Clancy wasted no time creating a style all his own: with pounding bass lines and heavy, intricate drums, he pulls from all the different genres of music that he has produced over the past twelve years. Keeping it dance floor friendly, but also staying true to the darker side of the bass music that he loves, he has struck a balance that makes his style fresh and new, but is still recognizable to fans.
