They have toured extensively throughout North America. In 2013 the band released their critically acclaimed EP titled “SOLOW” which was released on Steve Aoki’s label Dim Mak Records.
Unlike many other electronic artists, Keys N Krates perform completely live, using only drums, keys, turntable and live sampling.
Keys N Krates successes has earned them spots in some of the world’s biggest festivals like Lollapalooza, Electric Zoo, Ultra Music Festival, Osheaga, and Sonar Festival to name a few.
* YING YANG TWINS *
Ying Yang Twins debuted in 2000 with the single “Whistle While You Twurk”, which was played on urban and pop radio stations and peaked at #17 on the US R&B/Hip-Hop chart. They grew even more famous when they toured with Juz tha King, Kat Nu and Demo Dil on the tour called King Me. Their full-length debut album, Thug Walkin’, came out later that year.
Immediately after discovering fellow Atlanta hip hop artist Lil Jon, A&R Bryan Leach began talks with representative Michael ‘DJ Smurf’ Crooms about signing the Ying Yang Twins to TVT Records. Protracted negotiations meant that a deal was not finalized in time to for the label to release their next album, Alley: The Return of the Ying Yang Twins, which instead appeared in 2002 on Koch. The album was successful among hip-hop fans in the Southern United States. The same year, the group appeared on the album Kings of Crunk by Lil Jon on the single “Get Low”, and the song was a huge club and radio hit. As Crooms had negotiated only a one-album deal with Koch, the duo was free to finally submit to the advances of TVT, who had impressed them with their recent work with Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz.
A new album U.S.A. (United State of Atlanta) appeared in the summer of 2005 as its singles “Wait (The Whisper Song)”, “Badd”, and “Shake” were dominating popular music and rap radio stations, and U.S.A. (Still United), a collection of outtakes, remixes, and collaborations similar to My Brother & Me followed in December 2005. It too was accompanied by a DVD featuring music videos and other footage from the U.S.A. (United State of Atlanta) period.
In 2005, D-Roc and his younger brothers, Mr. Weeny, and Da Birthday Boy, formed the group Da Muzicianz and released their first single, “Camera Phone”. Their self-titled album was released on February 28, 2006.
Displaying their quaint and bucolic maritime themed living room in their MTV Cribs appearance, they boast of “having da paintin”, “the fish”, and “the boat”. D-Roc grunts, “HANHHHHHHHHHHH!”, a number of times throughout the episode, leading one to question if his behavior is staged, or if it’s how he acts in real life. D-Roc and Kaine make a point that no women were allowed to decorate their home. Further viewing yields the “Kichon” (sic), where D-Roc displays his culinary staples, consisting of Crunk Juice and Ramen Noodles.
The episode ends with a tour of the vehicles the Ying Yang Twins own, consisting of a customized 1990 Chevy Caprice with “Tweety Bird” on the interior, as they “Go bananas” when they ride.

The bearded wizard has done it again. This is by far one of my favorite tracks he has produced. BGWRK is sure to make even the most austere college professor’s head bob. The kind of trap to make any booty bounce, even the lunch lady’s. Listen below but beware of bystanders busting out in a full on groove.
This week’s Altered Thurzday can easily be considered the biggest show in it’s history. One of the pioneers of the Dubstep sound is coming from here from the land where Cockney Thugs roam. That’s right! Caspa has decided embark on a special journey through smaller venues in the states to give his fans a more intimate and personal experience. Here is how he describes it:
"Having released and performed in almost every corner of the globe, Caspa is identified as an innovator in all areas of bass music, from producing and DJing to sourcing new talent for his own Dub Police and Sub Soldiers imprint. We all know music should be about vibes and feelings, not glitz and glamour - which can be easily forgotten and usually is. Its now time to strip away the hype and facade and to remind us what its really about. Picture a dark, underground space, an intimate gathering in the company of the most dedicated bass-heads. The fans who truly love and crave the simplicity of an original underground, London rave - dimly lit by a single red light and free from any over-the-top gimmicks. All that matters is a huge sound system, Caspa and 500 like-minded people engulfed by the sound and the vibe. This is something that can only be generated by a true innovator. This is 'The 500 Tour'"
Sounds a bit like a place some of us know very well, am I right? Caspa decided not to rely on the venue for sound (probably a wise idea), but instead bring his own and PK Sound at that! The Mousetrap has never seen such a system before and I pray for it’s foundation.
Caspa AKA Gary McCann is a dubstep producer from west London. McCann’s creative involvement in music began after a promising basketball career was cut short by a shoulder injury. Growing up, McCann cites Jungle and Hip Hop as his main influences. He received his first public attention when, his first track, Bassbins recorded under the pseudonym Quiet Storm, was picked up by BBC Radio 1Xtra’s DJ Da Flex.
McCann has started his own label, which focuses on Dubstep and Grime artists. Storming Productions was founded in 2004 and then he joined Stingray Records in 2006. Around this time, he also began his own radio show on RinseFM. McCann also created an additional label Dub Police to focus specifically on Dubstep. Dub Police is composed of Rusko, L-Wiz, N-Type, The Others and more.
He has performed at a number of high-profile UK music festivals, including Glastonbury and Global Gathering and his release Back for the First Time has received widespread public attention, being playlisted on BBC Radio 1. He has also performed at many other notable festivals around the world such as Exit Festival in Serbia, Stereosonic in Australia and Lollapalooza in the U.S. Despite his widespread success, McCann still finds time to perform every two months at the renowned Fabric in his hometown of London.
His debut album Everybody’s Talking, Nobody’s Listening (album) was released on 4 May 2009 on Caspa’s own label Sub Soldiers/Fabric Records and included an appearance from legendary reggae figure Sir David ‘Ram Jam’ Rodigan.
In August 2012, it was announced that Caspa and various notable electronic music producers would be featured on the Halo 4 remix album and “War” was featured in the trailer for Kick-Ass 2. In 2014, McCann moved to Denver, Colorado. He cites Denver’s music culture and friendly people as influential factors, although he is unsure whether the move will be permanent. – Wikipedia
Among the ever-expanding landscape of Dubstep, Alex Crawford (known musically as The Others) has crafted his own distinct style and shaped up what promises to be a successful 2014. Having released his debut artist album and conquered music venues worldwide, the future will see him focus on producing his niche blend of classic Dubstep creation.
During 2013 The Others had a range of successes, reaching from one of the biggest Dubstep singles of the year to delving into a deeper, darker style of production, gaining support from original scene tastemakers such as Caspa, Youngsta and Skream, giving a huge nod to the roots of Dubstep. Having released his debut artist album at the very end of 2012 with features from Emalkay, Joker, Stamina MC, Breakage, Lonette Charles and Geoff Smith, the following year was dedicated to the promotion of Red Planet’s impressive singles. Standout single ‘Fallout’ with Emalkay gained recognition from all corners of electronic music, with continued support from Radio stations such as Radio 1, Kiss FM, XFM, a nomination for a Bass Music Award and a feature from key Dubstep YouTube channel UKF. His inclusion in all sections of Dub Police’s Past Present Future compilation cemented his reputation as a bass music artist with longevity.
Dubstep fans will of course recognise The Others’ early production from Caspa and Rusko’s seminal FabricLive 37 mix. The special VIP mix of Africa became both a Dubstep anthem and a calling card for Alex’s skilful production. The Others (as a production duo) were soon snapped up by Caspa for his record label Dub Police, where Alex Crawford remains as an artist today (retaining the moniker The Others), racking up an incredible 23 releases – making him the most released and longest-standing artist on the entire label. Releases such as the Gravity EP and First Flight EP on Dub Police ensured he had earned his place among Dubstep’s elite. The Others has also found success with other respectable bass music labels including Sub Soldiers, Tempa, Ringo, Boka and Wheel & Deal records.
As well as a fantastic track record in producing, The Others is a more than accomplished DJ, being invited to play at some of the most prestigious venues worldwide. He has been a constant fixture at the Dub Police fabric residency in his hometown of London, and played key venues in the city like Pacha, Plastic People (FWD), Ministry of Sound and Matter. The Others has been invited to DJ at parties across the globe, including an impressive six US tours, both solo and group expeditions with label mates from Dub Police. He has performed at prestigious parties and venues such as Smog at The House of Blues in LA, South by Southwest in Texas, World Music Conference Miami and Beta in Denver for Sub.mission. Australasia was also graced with his musical skill during a Ministry of Sound tour of Australia and New Zealand in 2011, and Europe has been a staple destination with performances at Tomorrowland Festival, Outlook Festival, Paradiso in Amsterdam, Trix in Antwerp, The Villa in Oslo, Rex in Paris, and more. He was also part of the first ever Dubstep night in Ibiza, at Eden.
Fuelled by his constant creative output, The Others has received continued radio support from stations such as BBC Radio 1, XFM, Rinse FM and Kiss FM. He was an original member of the BBC 1xtra Daily Dose of Dubstep artists. All of these stations have invited Alex to play music on air, with Mistajam proclaiming his track Gravity and his First Flight EP ‘Jam Hot’.
His discography also hosts a very impressive catalogue of remixes including Above & Beyond, Breakage (with Newham Generals & David Rodigan), Caspa, Emalkay, Maroon 5 (with Wiz Khalifa), Reflekt, S.P.Y and Youngman & Skream.
2014 will see The Others continue to develop his musical creativity and delve into the deeper sound of Dubstep. He will remain focused on his DJ performances and spend another year travelling the globe, sharing his sound, and this will also be the year of Alex working alongside the label as an A&R to sign the next generation of artists. He is the next in line to mix Dub Police’s prestigious MyStyle compilation series. Add this to a host of exciting projects and planned collaborations, and 2014 will mean massive things to come for The Others.

Bass trio Terravita is bringing their Fuel To The Fire Tour to Indy this week. The group are not strangers to the city. They first came here to destroy Mojostock 2013, then came their performance at Old National that was more than explosive. This time, IndyMojo is bringing these guys to the Mousetrap and we are introducing our new 3D Projection Mapping. Whether you have witnessed Terravita’s dynamite performance already or have no idea what you are in for…Be there!
“Dominating the bass music scene for nearly a decade, Terravita has run the gamut when it comes to crowd-smashing, mind-melting electronic music. From the days of Drum & Bass to the era of contemporary Dubstep, Trap and everything in-between, Terravita know no limits when it comes to crafting the most staggering, bone-jarring bangers around. From their industry-leading sound-design to the razor-honed precision of their drums, Terravita are undeniable experts at their craft, and will inevitably remain so for many years to come.” – EDM.com
Terravita was catapulted into the public eye with the release of “Up In The Club”. The track that helped define the drumstep genre. Since then they have released over 12 top ten releases on the Beatport dubstep and drum & bass charts. The band has remixed Steve Aoki, Lil Jon, Chiddy Bang, Yelawolf, Datsik, Zedd & Bassnectar. Their last EP on Firepower Records “the Power of Fire” charted in the overall top five on Beatport for several weeks and included the hits “Well Oiled Machine” and “This Time Its Personal”. Terravita has toured with Steve Aoki, Datsik & Flux Pavilion and has played festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival (Vegas, Chicago, Orlando), I Love This City and Shambhala.

It’s time for Indy’s EDM fans to start amping up for a night of mayhem with hip-hop beatsmith and up-and-coming trap-god Carnage.
Trapaholics and burrito enthusiasts alike do not want to miss Carnage’s Nap Town stop on his Parental Advisory Tour (you know who you are, Chipotle Gang). Carnage, along with guests Dzeko & Torres, Paris Blohm, and Junkie Kid, will be tearin’ it up Wed, Nov 12 at the Deluxe at Old National Centre in downtown Indy. Doors open at 9 and you must be at least 18 to attend.
Diamante Blackmon, AKA Carnage, moved from Guatemala to Frederick, Maryland to live with his mother at the age of 6. In high school, the self-proclaimed “computer-nerd” began producing dance beats with rap friends. Galvanized by Dutch Hardstyle and his first experience at Electric Daisy Carnival, Carnage was inspired to experiment with trap beats. These pivotal influences laid the foundation for the characteristically fast, loud, vocal heavy, stadium-style banger set Carnage is known for today.
What looks like a one-year catapult to main stage success actually came from years of hard work and a dedication to perfecting his productions. Before dropping big-room bombs on the Spinnin Records label (“Incredible” with world-famous Israeli producer Borgore and “Signal” with Cali producers New & Used) he produced for an array of rappers such as A$AP Rocky, Theophilis London, G-Eazy, and Katie Got Bandz. The production for Bandz was releasd on Fool’s Gold Records, further solidifying his marriage to hip-hop-elctro fusion.
These days Carnage is living in Los Angelos, and working hard to feed his Chipotle Gang (the name Carnage has given his growing fan base) and the world with the heavy festival trap they need, nay, deserve. Carnage has created a brand to tenaciously guard
Not sold? Here’s some food for thought: Carnage calls his fans the Chipotle Gang because he loves Chipotle. And if that doesn’t do it for ya, check out his freshest release below. A funky collaboration with Erick Morillo and Harry Romero, “Let The Freak Out” is a telling taste of Carnage’s affinity for dance music fueled by house-inspired beats and the artist’s hip-hop roots.

Since his rise to power in 2009, SKisM has collaborated and remixed some of the biggest names in the business including Flux Pavilion, Excision, Foreign Beggars, Zomboy, Porter Robinson & Hadouken! His productions have racked up over 14 millions views on YouTube alone.
As co-owner and A&R of one of the most prolific labels in electronic, Never Say Die, as well as its sister label No Tomorrow, SKisM has had a hand in bringing some of the freshest music to the masses. He is constantly championing the sounds of the acts on both labels such as Zomboy, Far Too Loud, Eptic, BAR9, LAXX and MUST DIE!
2013 saw the release of a remix EP of his classic track ‘Elixir’ – with Megalodon, Skeptics and Karetus all stepping up to rework it alongside a VIP from the man himself. The label celebrated their 50th Never Say Die release in December, with The Prototypes remix of SKisM’s iconic ‘Experts’ featured on Never Say Die Fifty.
Having kicked off 2014 with a huge US tour in the form of ‘Rage By The Pound’, where SKisM played over a period of six weeks and visited a total of twenty-two cities, SKisM combines playing numerous global shows and successfully running Never Say Die.
It is such a treat to have someone of his caliber at The Mousetrap.

Taylor Scott and Paul Ollinger, known as Mantis, are a relentless duo. Having begun their musical careers with metal deathcore, the transition to heavy bass music was not so much a step down in intensity, but a slide into a world with spectacular tools to mix dense layers of music in new ways, and deploy it with force. Mantis was formed in early 2011 to test the boundaries of metal-influenced production, and plunge the result into a wash of haunting atmospheres. Mantis wants to provide “music to make you feel like you’re somewhere else, and you’ve never been more stoked to be there.”
With that target in sight, 2011 was a smashing first year; the momentum began in Atlanta, and overflowed with releases on labels such as Play Me, Heavy Artillery, BroTown Records, Abducted Records. A standard was set with 2011’s “All Worlds”, their first EP, breaking the top 10 on Beatport’s Dubstep releases, and held with 2012’s “Futures” scoring #5 on Beatport’s overall chart. The support of tastemakers such as Liquid Stranger, Downlink, Figure, Cyberoptics, Diesel, Genetix, Persist, Sluggo, points to an accomplishment of musical influence on an international scale, and the potential for much more.
A history in Atlanta’s metal scene, playing in acts such as WLTP and Attila, provides Mantis’ cornerstone of fierce stage skills. Having become known across the USA for throwing down an aggressive live show with unmatched energy and only the heaviest bass music, Mantis’ reputation stands as being one of the gnarliest new production teams in the scene. With packed crowds at hand, and Beatport charts at their feet, only one goal remains- to raise the awareness of metal-influenced bass music… oh, and world domination.
Exploding into the bass music scene, Collin McKay has proven that age is nothing more than a number. Releasing hard-hitting tracks under his alter ego ‘Rekoil’, the 19-year-old producer is already a force to be reckoned with. Immediately garnering attention from bass music heavy weights, Rekoil quickly found his way onto Datsik’s Firepower Records and joined him on the 2013 Reloaded Tour.
Shaping up to be a huge year, 2014 has already seen complete destruction by the Baltimore native. After several earth-shattering WMC performances, Rekoil dominated Hollywood’s legendary Avalon during 12th Planet’s SMOG Takeover. Coming up next, chaos is to be expected as the hard-hitting young producer joins Getter’s bass-heavy Gnartillery tour. With his fresh face and filthy tracks, Rekoil will continue to tear up the scene, securing his future as a bass music power player.

Next Thurzday, August 7th will mark the 4th year that IndyMojo has been bringing you beats on a weekly basis. The time has come for us to celebrate this affair and what better way to do that than bringing one of the biggest pioneers in the Bass Movement. Downlink with be headlining the main stage, along with Kodama, Indigo Child, and jFet. There will be a secondary stage out on the patio featuring other local favorites.
DOWNLINK AKA Sean Casavant is a name firmly cemented in the hearts and minds of the bass music community. He is respected the world over as a producer of the highest quality dance floor bangers. He has had numerous #1 hits on Beatport and has released music with major labels like Rottun, OWSLA and Mau5trap. He has helped mix an album for the legendary nu-metal band Korn. He has toured the planet far and wide, leaving a wake of awe-struck audiences in his path. To see him live is to witness one of the tightest technical DJ’s in the game.
His 3 deck live mixing and infectious stage energy light up venues turning crowds on their heads time after time. Expect lightning fast mixing on a journey through a wide variety of bass music. All tempos are fair game as long as its underground vibes and dirty bass. 2013 was a huge year for Downlink. Along with homies Excision and KJ Sawka, he gave rise to bass music supergroup Destroid, a whole different kind of live experience altogether. You really have to see it live to fully grasp the scope and intensity of the show. Also in 2013,
Downlink launched his brand new record label, Uplink Audio. This will be a place where he will showcase his own music as well as a wide variety of other high grade material. Downlink is not one to be pigeon-holed and is constantly on a quest to evolve and refine his sound. With this in mind, one thing will always remain constant – a pure unadulterated heavy listening experience…
The jFET Project began in early 2011 by Producer / DJ “Jangatha.” After over 50 house music releases on some of the most respected labels in both digital and vinyl format, the need to seek fresh sounds was instilled and inspired by the edgy bass music arena. The focus is rather simple, to push fresh hype sounds in any BPM it fits best. jFET’s sounds have been catching on quick.
His debut EP reached #15 on the Beatport Dubstep Release charts, and caught the attention of several respected blogs including The Untz. 2012 included a release from Play Me Records as part of the New Blood of Dubstep. With support from international touring acts such as Figure, Ajapai, and Reid Speed, we will likely be hearing much more to come from this eclectic project. jFET: Intergalactic Hitman / Producer / Performer.

Indigo Child taps into the deeper darker parts of your soul. beats that vibrate your ribcage and send electrical currents through your body. every show is 100% raw talent and intimate with the audience. Indigo Child (Rob) wants to provide a connection between him and the audience to help people capture the side of themselves they dont normally see in themselves. This is the darker side of spirituality!
Kodama is one of the first resident DJs of Altered Thurzdaze. He has been spinning beats since ’99. There is no style he has not touched. Kodama took a year hiatus for family reasons. Now he is back in the drivers seat and ready to blow you off your feet with bass.
SHY GUY SAYS is an electronic music producer and performer straight from the Mushroom Kingdom, an 8-bit villain ready to destroy any party at any time and somehow leave his victims wanting more. His eclectic, yet upbeat and danceable sound can best be described as a mixture of Hip Hop, Glitch Hop, Dubstep, Trap, and Drum N Bass. It’s know for its heavy rhythmic swagger, yet at the same time can be lush and loaded with dirty synth bass sounds, warm ambiance, and 8-bit glitches.
A second stage with more performers TBA!
The legendary trio have a massive release this week on Firepower Records. A powerhouse of 14 tracks with some unmistakably talented collaborators. Each track has been calibrated to set your mind into a deep spell. So plug in with your best cans, close your eyes and let the Rituals begin.
1. We’re Here – Featuring Obsidian
From the rain to the opera to the heavy bass, this track is most definitely a journey. Featuring San Diego based Obsidian, this is a great start for the album to keep your brain wanting more.
2. Losing Control – Featuring Datsik
Where to begin on this? It’s my favorite on the album that is for sure. Tribal vibe at first then led into a spacey subsonic synth by hypnotic vocals. These guys need to more tracks together. Great track all around.
3. King Of The Jungle – Featuring J Rabbit
The Grandma’s Boy samples got me on this one. Very dub and reggae atmosphere. J. Rabbit always brings a great punch to anything he touches. Very fun track.
4. Check This Out
“Rock the disco and check this out!” This track showcases the underlying talent behind Terravita’s MC Jon Spero. Dark lyrically with a jump up appeal. You should absolutely “Check this out”!
5. Follow Me – Featuring FS
Haters follow me every where I go. Ain’t that the truth? FS is seriously one of my favorites of the old days especially the days of Ming & FS. Glad to see he has progressed so well in the new generation of bass. This one is very screwed and chopped with them crunk feels.
6. We Are Here
Glitchy love with a spice of dubalicious beats. Jon brings us his softer side, if you can call it that. With lyrics like “I feel alive again, when you pull me back to bed between your thighs again, when your lips, touch my lips I feel high again, two hearts one life we are alive again” make this track both sexy and sweet.
7. Bach Off
We have all heard classical mixed with bass before, but this is different. This one punches you in the face without any warning or regret. Great build and a hellacious drop.
8. Colorblind – Featuring Evan Kiljoy
This track brings you New Zealand based Evan Short (aka Kiljoy) of the drum and bass duo Concord Dawn. Stellar guitar riffs and vocals, this track is slowed and churned out nicely.
9. Think Big – Featuring Nerd Rage
Ooooo the sexiness of this drum and bass will sink into your soul. Nerd Rage engulfs this masterpiece with his edgy style. Jon tells you just how you much you are on your own and you got to make things happen your way.
10. Set It Off
Very trappy with a psychosis of dub. Plain and simple on this one, they really set off the accent of the two flavors.
11. Atlantic Drifter – Featuring KJ Sawka
Drumstep, I love drumstep so much and Terravita does it so well. KJ Sawka of Pendulum helps this track blossom immensely. Hearing these minds together is a blessing.
12. Dutch Step
Very dutch house feel with a touch of the drums and the basses. If i had to pick a least favorite it would be this one. Just very bland in my opinion. Experimenting is key is this genre. I dig the reach out, but don’t dig this one.
13. Spicy By The Glass
So funky that it will burn your eardrums. The horns and the bass guitar really grab you by the boo boo. Take a shot of this spice for your life.
14. Settle The Score – Featuring Casey Desmond
I am a sucker for good female vocalists. Boston based Casey Desmond, has some talent going on there and I plan on checking out more of her work. Great track and ends the album very well.
This album all-in-all is a great representation of where this scene is heading. Not letting yourself getting too wrapped up in one particular genre is where everyone’s mind needs to be. Terravita has put together a solid piece of art here. I suggest buying the whole album and putting in on blast.
gLAdiator is a DJ/Production duo from Los Angeles comprised of Danl and Ian. They show their flex and diverse backgrounds by melding their collected musical taste and experience into a sound unique to gLAdiator. Their love of the Lakers and all things Mila Kunis fuels their productive fire with the aim of making a name for themselves in the ever-evolving dance music landscape.
Two Fresh has travelled a long way with their sound in a short time. Originally from Nashville, TN, and now residing in Denver CO, twin brothers Sherwyn & Kendrick Nicholls have developed into a unique electronic production team.
The twins early work, “The Baker’s Dozen,” was nostalgic of early 90’s hip-hop, using soulful and lo-fi samples, intertwined with classic drum stylings. With their first full length album, “Airmail”, Two Fresh took the sound in a spacey, yet grounded direction that has set the foundation for their more recent works. Having released “Watch This!” in early 2013, the twins’ latest EP showcases the more upbeat side of their musical spectrum.
Sherwyn and Kendrick developed a broad fan base, spanning all across North America, through extensive touring with artists such as Skrillex, Bassnectar,12th Planet, and Daedelus as well as performing at a slew of music festivals including Electric Daisy Carnival, SXSW and Detroit Electronic Music Festival.
Now in their fifth year as a group, be sure to catch Two Fresh out this summer performing new material from their forthcoming full-length release due this fall!
