Christian Bauhofer, known by his fans as his party crushing alter ego Minnesota, is a
producer and DJ heralding from Santa Cruz, CA that has been lighting up venues across the
country with his frantic energy and pounding bass. At 23 years old, Minnesota has recently spent
his time touring with acts such as Big Gigantic while artists like Bassnectar and PANTyRAID
have been incorporating his tracks into their sets. ‘Quickly becoming a staple in my sets,’
commented Bassnectar when discussing the use of Minnesota’s track ‘Push It’. ‘Perfect for when
I need a track that is epic and churning but also melodically hyped.’
Minnesota’s goal seems simple; to release diverse productions that can win over any
crowd. The support of his management team, agency, and some of the world’s greatest artists can
only attribute to his hunger for more time spent on the road and in the studio. To those that
haven’t had the opportunity to see Minnesota perform, just wait until his tour rolls out this
summer. To put it lightly, Minnesota is a name to watch. For Minnesota, the future is bright as he
spends his time producing new tracks and finds himself playing more events than ever. If you
haven’t heard about him until now, know that Minnesota is a name to watch.Santa Cruz producer G Jones has captivated young audiencesacross North America with his playful and expansive take on broken beat dance music. His live show weaves an ever expanding catalog of heavy knocking hip hop beats, cross- genre experiments, and expansive melodic riffs in a way that illuminates and drives the dance floor. With his irreverent attitude toward unimaginative EDM, this young producer pushes the envelope and blurs the lines between musical styles while maintaining a meticulous balance of minimal space and heavy bass.His latest release Eyes (available on Robox Neotech) is an audacious energy enhancer comprised of premium West Coast bass music, a swift collection of cross-genre experiments and dubbed-out sub bass monsters designed for the dance floor. This playful EP illustrates the artist’s signature reverb style with bulbous basslines, pulverized vocals and unexpected adulterations of spaced-out sounds.G Jones has recently garnered attention from several highly acclaimed producers, with his beats appearing in mixes by Pretty Lights, Zeds Dead and DJ Shadow on BBC’s “Diplo and Friends” program. Touring heavily in Europe and hitting U.S. festivals from Coachella to Symbiosis Gathering this Summer, G Jones generates music dosed with an undeniable sense of freedom and fun.Mikey Pennington, best known by his artist name Jackal, is a 23 year-old music producer and DJ. Originally from England, Jackal started producing when he was 19 while attending the University of Canterbury.

Since the release of his track “Shakedown”, Jackal’s presence in electronic dance music has quickly risen and continues to make an impression, his beats often finding their way into the sets of artists from Skrillex to Diplo.
