Sam Pace has instantly become one of the hottest up and coming DJ’s, steadily making a name for herself in the male-dominated electronic dance scene in the past year.

Once described as the mystery men of disco, Tiger & Woods have achieved the demi-god status for their smooth and glittery disco sound. The self-proclaimed ‘sample freaks’ come from Rome and although they kept their identities secret for quite some time we now know Larry Tiger and David Woods are the men behind the music. The duo first formed back in 2008 after meeting at Red Bull Music Academy in Barcelona. Since then they have released multiple EPs and albums on the reputed Running Back Records and their own imprints, Editainment and most recently Tiger and Woods Records. Their sets are packed with carefully selected funk and disco tracks, ramped up with some modern house and techno flavor.

Shaun began to professionally create tracks in 2007, predominantly Drum and Bass but was always experimenting across all styles. He was inspired to try his hand at making a few dubstep tunes in the same vein, and created the joyous and body-popping “Gargoyle”, shortly followed by Badman Sound’ (Dub Police) which were quickly picked up by Rusko and other DJs. Doctor P and Flux Pavilion have continued to grow Circus and their own careers. Doctor P has worked with Method Man, Dillon Francis, Adam F and P Money amongst others.
Born and raised in Houston, Mike Jones has always had an eye on the future while laying the foundation to climb the ladder of success. Jones’ first love has always been basketball, but when his hoop dream did not materialize, he realized that he had to make money to become his own man.

Mike Jones began to hustle by squandering his money to create Ice Age Entertainment in 2001 to pursue his other love: rapping. Next, Jones began to circulate his music, hitting DJ’s and strip clubs to make sure his music was heard in the streets. He’s been building his empire since.
