Anytime he hits the stage, Crizzly has no choice but to go hard. Channeling hyperactive energy and uncontainable swagger, the San Antonio DJ and producer ignites crowds with an infectious and inimitable blend of trap, dubstep and hip-hop, which he affectionately terms, “Crunkstep”. In 2011, he released his own takes on Waka Flocka Flame’s “Hard in Da Paint” and “Snap Back Swag” from AJ Hernz, and suddenly he set the blogosphere ablaze. In addition, Skrillex, Diplo, Excision & Datsik all began playing his remixes in their sets. In February 2012, he embarked on a highly successful tour with 12th Planet and Flinch, and he followed that up with shows alongside Zed’s Dead. One thing is for sure; there ain’t no party like a Crizzly party.
Tinashe does everything on her own terms. The stunning 23-year-old singer, songwriter, and performer arrives with a distinct and dynamic vision of R&B punctuated by hip-hop attitude, pop flavor, rock swagger, and electronica spark. It all comes to life vividly on Aquarius, her full-length debut on RCA Records. Before being a singer, Tinashe was once a model. She ventured into acting and made her first appearance in 2000 in a film Cora Unashamed. From then on, she also starred in The Polar Express and from 2008 – 2009, and she was part of the TV series Two and a Half Men. Three mixtapes – 2012’s In Case We Die and Reverie as well as 2013’s Black Water, left her growing fan base in awe. In the midst of everything, RCA signed Tinashe as she tapped into a sound that solely belonged to her – It’s Progressive R&B.
The concept behind the name “MAD” was actually an abbreviation of a philosophical slogan – Make A Difference”. It pledges that everyone can make a difference in life, even with the least of strength. The word “August” which in numeric 8 refers to Success, Opportunity & Strength. The Malaysian band consist of 4 members – Peter (Vocalist), Jim (Guitarist), Jeff (Bassist) and Kitt (Drummer) who manifest the “Mad August” ideology via music.
