HEYZ | 12:20 AM - 1:40 AM
Hailing from Greensboro, North Carolina, Hayes' precocious musical background saw him playing with instruments from a very young age. Eventually, music writing came naturally which organically led to music production. At the time, his knack for crafting music would pique the interest of deadmau5's renowned mau5trap label in 2018. Stylistically pivoting, HEYZ would opt instead to place a focal point on more bass-heavy sounds in favor of the techno he was making at the time.
Since, he's released on established imprints the likes of the U.K.'s Circus Records, Jauz's Bite This!, and more recently, Zeds Dead's Deadbeats. Over the course of the last year, his TikTok following has grown significantly, further solidifying his main goal of disseminating comedic relief and positive vibes to a world that very much so needs it, all by just being himself.
With a substantial following already under his belt, HEYZ's perpetual upwards trajectory will continue to catapult him to the stars. With the 2021 release of his 'Who Is HEYZ' EP, HEYZ solidified himself as a Deadbeats mainstay and has since become a frequent performer on the labels extensive touring schedule. Following his late 2021 remix of Zeds Dead and MKLA's hit "Alive," he has an arsenal of new records set to release in 2022 starting with his new single 'Touched' featuring Ina Bravo out January 14th on Deadbeats.
Sol Good | 11:00 PM - 12:15 AM
Sol Good (real name Solon Bowden) delivers a unique brand of experimental bass music - an exotic blend of organic and synthetic textures, filled with powerfully deep low end and cavernous atmospheres. Occasionally unsettling, consistently satisfying, and always thought provoking, Sol Good understands the delicate balance of tension and release, and aims to deliver a memorable and extremely danceable performance every time he steps on stage.
Filled with cohesive thematic elements from beginning to end, Sol Good aims to take every listener on a journey through the darker side of psychedelic bass music.
Soss | 10:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Hailing from Atlanta and now a Richmond local, Sawyer Katz is sure to catch your attention. From deep UK inspired 140 to soothing downtempo, Soss always brings the heat. You would be hard pressed to find someone as comfortable on the decks as this guy is, his confidence apparent on stage. You wont walk away from a Soss set without a takeaway.
Babyface Killah is so named for his baby-like facial features and killer curations. He has been cutting rugs since he could walk and getting into the electronic scene in ’09 just as he was finishing high school. You can catch Babyface Killah rinsing everything from dubstep to trap to future bass to house and back to deep and experimental dubs. Babyface Killah has shared the stage with the likes of Mize, Veil, Wreckno and Micfreak. Every set is unique, keeps the people moving, and a must to experience. Especially now as he is grinding away in the studio. His debut single is due to emerge at any moment.
ELARIS | rotating from 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Where “techno” and “EDM” often sit on opposite sides of the table, DJ sets by Elaris defiantly sit on the table between the two. A look into his library of music and you’ll see a chaotic junk drawer of Garage, Techno, Industrial, Trance, House, Disco, Minimal, Jungle, Bass and Drum N’ Bass, Movie Samples and Studio demos — hear his sets — and this seemingly unorganized collection music turns into a introspective, evocative, heavy hitting and suggestive soundscape.
Ethan (Elaris) maintained multiple residencies from 2007 and 2011 at Techno, and Industrial clubs before taking a step back from djing all together in 2014 to turn his attention to work as a ghost-writer, synthesis/ sound designer, and pianist. Time spent in Nantes, London, and San Francisco would later inspire his return to Charlottesville to host a series of invite only events that would mark the beginnings of what would later become WhereHouse and now a return to performing once again as a DJ.
noögenesis | rotating from 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
What in the world is noogenesis and how do you say it? Well, Matt pronounces it “noo-oh-dʒenəsɪs,” although he's not sure he understands what it really means just yet. Father Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, a “super heady” Jesuit priest, came up with the concept in his 1930s essay “The Phenomenon of Man.” He hopes everyone is inspired to read it in the hopes that someone can explain it to him. Mind mulling over the evolution of creation inevitably becoming a collective sphere of unified consciousness is how Matt spends most of his days when he’s not DJing. He hopes to play a small part in an ignition of this grand plan by vibrating everyone's molecules at the same frequencies in close proximity. Fine-tuning his beeps and boops after each experiment, he believes he is close to hitting that critical mass any day now, or he may just be going mad. He’s here to bring endlessly-expanding melodies and crunchy cadences to the floor, and get your shuffling, sweating selves moving in the right direction!
Ravida | rotating from 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Newcomer, Ravida has exploded onto the VA house scene with his forceful basslines and psychedelic essence. Ravida is based out of Charlottesville, VA and is known to travel, leaving an imprint wherever he goes.
