There’s a big sound coming out of Miami. It’s a loud, in your face sound with a hip-hop lean and sometimes a tropical vibe. It’s dirty, sexy and full of hype, and it’s called GTA.
Matt Toth and Julio Mejia make up the dynamic duo. Dedicated to their music, they stay holed up in their bedroom studio building beats that can set off any kind of dance floor. They’re stealing the stage from their hood to New York, LA and everything in between, and it just comes down to how they play their game.
Producers without borders, their catalogue of sounds span the gamut without limitations. They’ll experiment with trap music, house, moombahton, funky electro, booty bass, salsa, big room, anything they can put their flavor on. With “Death to Genres” as their battle cry, their mission is to set the room on fire and get all the asses clapping, every time.
GTA’s future sound has them sought after some of the biggest names in the dance music game. They’ve had releases on Diplo’s Mad Decent, Ladback Luke’s Mixmash and A-Trak’s Fool’s Gold Records. They’ve remixed various artists from all genres, including Michael Woods, Trinidad James, Deadmau5, Wolfgang Gartner, Clockwork, Laidback Luke and A-Trak.
Armed with endless creativity, a tireless work ethic and a fierce dedication to their craft, GTA are carving their name into the minds of dance floors freaks everywhere, and you can count on them to deliver the goods, each and every time.
If the first thing you know about Craze is that he’s the only solo DJ to win the DMC World Championships 3 times over, prepare to get yourself schooled. From day one, every uphill battle he faced was met with intense adversity; every kick while he was down only served to help him rise up even stronger. You want proof? Fine. His family fled Nicaragua for the US when he was 3 in the midst of a civil war, suffered through Hurricane Andrew in ’92, the US’s costliest hurricane at the time, and was a total nerd through his teenage years. But while others would chalk this up to a lifetime of hurt, Craze let it fuel his passion. Instead of giving up, he slayed the DMC’s when he was just 20. Two more DMC wins later, Time Magazine named him “America’s Best DJ”. Yeah, Time Magazine. He went on to rack up more than 8.5 million views on his Traktor YouTube videos alone, and THE Kanye West took him on tour as his own personal DJ. As if that wasn’t enough, he started Slow Roast Records with Kill The Noise, an imprint of the infamous Fool’s Gold Records (A-Trak, Kid Cudi, Danny Brown), and then headed out for a full US tour with Yelawolf in the last half of 2011. With two releases in 2012 – the Selekta EP, and Deeper with Codes, he’s hasn’t taken any time to slow down, instead focusing on a battle record with arguable the greatest scratch DJ of all time…Q-Bert. From Jamaica to Australia, Japan to Nicaragua, Craze has toured the world over, stunning audiences and DJs alike with his top-notch showmanship, and masterfully unique blend of rap, dubstep, and Miami bass. So when someone asks you, ‘Whatchu know about DJ Craze?”, feel free to let them know a thing or two.
For Vincent, his name literally defines him and his humble roots growing up in a small town right outside of Winnipeg, Canada. Coming up as youngster, it wasn’t a computer that he took liking too, but a something a little more classical, the piano. From behind the piano keyboard at a young age to the computer keyboard during his teens, the seamless transition has given way to some of his monster originals and remixes we listen to today.
