Consider yourself fortunate If you get a chance catch a Motion Potion DJ set these days. An enormous amount of thought, planning, and scheming has to occur to make them happen. MoPo approaches his shows like a college professor, or a football coach, putting hours of preparation and thought into exactly who will be listening, and how exactly to reach into their souls. Every set is different, and each can unfold in hundreds of different ways, and this intense focus on preparation makes him so versatile, so intense, and so much damn fun. These are “DJ sets” in the classic sense, unfolding like poems with every song a word and every mix or drop a bit of punctuation. Once known as the “DJ for people who hate DJ’s” it would be more accurate to say that this is the DJ for those who love live music.Chicago based by way of SF and LA, Clap Back (previously performing under Split) has produced tracks and played at clubs & festivals across the country. He’s played alongside acts such as MK, Tensnake, Tiger & Woods, The Knocks, Flight Facilities, Goldroom, Breakbot, RAC, Skream, Annie Mac and many more.Chip “Mancub” Corwin has been voted as a top ten dj of San Francisco. He has been blowing up the block party jams for over ten years. Mancub has a very diffinitive style of turntable tricks that have earned him slots beside some of the dance industry’s biggest headliners. His turntable antics are too numerous to mention but include scratching while wearing boxing gloves, he certainly knows how to work the crowd into a frenzy!!You can hear his mixes on the internet radio station pulseradio.net, netamp.com or djmancub.com. The netamp show is aired on the last Wednesday of the month or archived. Mancub also plays for the infamous playa posse The Space Cowboys, ripping up a rare storm on the mighty Unimog at numerous unforgettable party’s. Mancub has recently joined Sleevin records and is supporting us in a big wayI’m a 24 year old Producer/DJ from West Michigan bringing you all the #Astrobass you can handle.Hello! I studied music since before I could walk. Now I DJ as dgro and throw parties (Chromed) with friends.Keith MacKenzie has emerged as one of the driving forces behind the global breakbeat scene, regularly gigging across the US and Europe. Now based in Chicago, Keith spent his formative years in the now legendary Florida rave scene racking up early credits on influential labels like DJ Icey’s Zone Records and After Dark before launching his own label. Illeven:Eleven Recordings, now in its 11th year of operations, built a reputation for releasing quality collaborations from a diverse roster of artists (Audiostalkers, Deekline & Ed Solo, Fixx, Infiniti, Bass Kleph, Gigi Barocco, Rico Tubbs, Sporty-O, Sue Cho and Whiskey Pete have all released on the label) making it a Beatport mainstay in the process. Under the informal moniker of KMFX alongside Fixx he’s gone on to release internationally on labels like Deekline’s Rat Records, as well as Punks, the venerable UK imprint formed by breakbeat stalwarts Stanton Warriors.
In 2012 Keith teamed up with long time creative collaborators Fixx and D:RC to form Smookie Illson, a new bass music alias for studio experiments that fall outside the rather strict umbrella of breakbeat music. After trying their hand at everything from electro house to moombahton (signing their first demos to Potty Mouth Music in the process) they found their footing in the EDM ‘trap’ scene, churning out bootlegs and originals at a brisk pace and gaining steady support from fans and peers alike. Their 2013 bootleg remix of Yo Majesty’s ‘Club Action’ turned into one of the longest-running festival season selections, gaining support year after year from scene favorites like Skrillex & Diplo, Baauer, RL Grime, Brillz, and Loudpvck. 2015 saw Smookie Illson releasing their ‘Compound Riddims EP’ a highly-rated collab with the UK’s Ragga Twins on Play Me Records, as well as releases on Seattle’s Simplify Records and Australia’s Safari Music.Timothy Monkiewicz & Thomas MurphyA sonically fulfilling, soon-to-be-forgotten experience with a DJ you can pretend you don’t know next time you see him.Tor was raised in a small mountain town on Canada’s west coast where he started experimenting with music production as a teenager. He further honed his skills while living in Australia, running a small recording studio and remixing some prominent Australian producers. He later produced the Sufjan Stevens hip hop mashup album ‘Illinoize’, which garnered a lot of critical and audience acclaim.
Now based in Vancouver and inspired by the positive feedback he received from his previous projects, he decided to finally produce the album he had been wanting to make for almost 10 years: ‘Drum Therapy’. It combines layers of downtempo melodic beats, organic instrumentation, and the unmistakable sounds of dusty samples. For the album, Tor mined everything from 60’s Italian film scores and long-lost Turkish psych records, to Celtic folk hymns, exotic eastern instruments and deep south gospel. He also played many of the non-sampled elements himself, and treated the sounds to give them the warmth & texture he had always wanted the album to have.
Tor is the first artist signed to Emancipator’s newly minted label ‘Loci Records’, and is continuing to perform live after adapting his music for multiple festival performances over the summer of 2012.Vourteque is one of America’s quickly rising stars in the electro swing and neo-vaudeville communities. Musician, producer, remix artist, DJ, carny and ringmaster – Vourteque entertains and wows crowd from Los Angeles to New York. He’s one of the minds behind Chicago’s Rouge! electro swing night, a Do312 nightlife awards nominated monthly that’s featured guests such as Good Co., Lord Justice and Dutty Moonshine.

Vourteque’s sound can best be described as a cross behind the more house and disco influenced European style of electro swing but injected with a good dose of good ol’ American industrial, techno and gothic blues. His single, Whiskey Drinker, has gotten acclaim and plays throughout the internet, and his first release, The Swing Mechanical, still sells robustly two years out and can be found on Amazon, iTunes, Spotify, Beatport and more.

He’s played for a wide variety of promoters and shows, from The Steampunk Ball in Tampa and The Anachronism in New York to being a favorite dj at Detroit’s Theatre Bizarre show three years in a row now. He’s been described as one of the best steampunk and electro swing DJs in the United States and has never left a crowd feeling let down.

He’s currently working on a full length album featuring collaborations with Professor Elemental, Sabrina Chap, Carey Rayburn of Good Co, Joe Harbinson and Alex Johns of Ford Theatre Reunion and, of course, Mr. Automatic whom he frequently performs and produces with.

CAT just to name a few. In December of 2014,the duo headed out on their first headlining tour of Europe in December of 2014, a mere 11 months after beginning this new project.
