illGates: Toronto-born San Francisco-based producer, performer and educator ill.Gates has had a long and lavish career in music. DJing since his earliest teenaged years, .Gates has established a global fan base and enjoys an increasing reputation as dynamic, definitive and decisive EDM artist. ill.Gates is rising steadily up the ranks through his many collaborate releases with such industry heavyweights as Datsik, Bassnectar, Ana Sia, Opiuo, T.O.B., Vibesquad, Mimosa and more. 

Touring regularly across the globe, monumental ill.Gates sets at signal festivals like Burning Man, Shambhala and WEMF are memorable experiences and favourite events among fans and DJs alike. 

Crushing charts and detonating dancefloors with such colossal collaborative tracks as the Bassnectar Timestretch and Divergent Spectrum releases, ill.Gates receives extensive amounts of appreciation and praise from some of the leading artists in the electronic music setting. These commanding accomplishments and capital achievements make ill.Gates’ both a sought-after producer as well as a celebrated mentor to some of the baddest names in the bass music scene. 
KJ Sawka: With a passion for music, superhuman dexterity and mastery of the musical marathon, KJ Sawka is world renowned drummer extraordinaire. From continuously touring the globe to conquering the electronic music scene by going platinum with super group Pendulum (original live EDM band of 'Knife Party' superstars, Rob Swire and Garreth McGrillen) to challenging status quo with his live dubstep band Destroid, (a power trio comprised of Excision, Downlink, and KJ Sawka) KJ Sawka is a force to be reckoned with. Utilizing a half-acoustic, half-electronic drum set, laptop and a multitude of triggered effects, the original human drum machine produces dynamically enthralling live electronica with an all-but-unmatched aggression. With a deeply rooted, rich musical history, his influence helped to pave the way for the electronic music movement; KJ Sawka is one of the original groundbreaking artist connecting live instrumentation with the digital age and sound we know today as EDM. 

And as if all of that wasn't enough; 2015 christened the birth and launch of his latest passion project Impossible Records, a multi-genre electronic dance music label. In less than two years the independent label has hit the ground running with 20+ #1 hits on the Beatport Music charts and notoriety and praise pouring in from major music blogs and top producers worldwide.
