MTV's 2013 No. 1 Hottest MC in the Game, and HipHop DX's 2012 "Emcee of the Year", Compton native Kendrick Lamar has turned heads since his 2010 release of Overly Dedicated.

Known for mixing their pop-leaning electro with an over the top sense of humor, bananas, and a kinetic live show, Swedish electro-house duo Dada Life have blown through the DJ charts since 2010.

Get Ready to arrive beautiful and leave ugly."

Costa Mesa's The Growlers are known for their distinctive mix of Californian 60's surf rock with a wide variety of effects and genres from country to hip-hop, all mixed in together with a heavy use of psychedelic influences. The result is the groovy, lo-fi sound the Growlers have self-titled as "Beach Goth", and which has quickly made them a staple in the California surf rock scene.
