DJ Z-Trip: Quick facts:
A Member of the Iller Clothing Team. From Phoenix AZ, DJ Z-Trip is a true B-boy. He was fifteen when he bought his first set of turntables, but got into it all through graffiti. Frequent visits to NYC furthered an interest in the music and digging. The underground distribution of his 2001 mixtape collaboration with DJ P, Uneasy Listening, led to worldwide acclaim.

Continuing to represent the five elements, Z-Trip appeared in Scratch the movie and the Return of the DJ series, and since then has travelled extensively to headline and rock the party. When opening for the the 'Stones he played to 450'000 people. In 2005 his first album Shifting Gears was given four stars by Rolling Stone magazine and has worked with the Motown record label.

DJ Z-Trip: Further Info:
Z-Trip is one of the biggest DJs of our time, doing over 100 shows a year, every year. No other DJ can claim playing to 500,000 people opening for the Rolling Stones at Sars-stock in Toronto, playing the Bonaroo main stage to over 70,000 people 2 years in a row in addition to headlining a tent at Coachella twice. He recently traveled to Kuwait and played a gig for the troops there under the banner 'Operation MySpace'.

Z-Trip's major label debut Shifting Gears was given **** (4 stars) by Rolling Stone. The first single Walking Dead went Top 20 and featured Chester Bennington of Linkin Park. The album also had 2 ..1s on the college chart. Listen to the DJ featuring Soup of Jurassic 5 and Shock and awe featuring Chuck D. He's also a master of the remix, with a stand out re-working of The Jackson 5's "I Want You Back" on "Motown Remixed". Z-Trip can also be seen in the movie "Scratch" and "Scratch Live" alongside Q-Bert, Mix Master Mike and originators of the art form like Afrika Bambatta and Jazzy Jay.

Info on Hudson Mohawke:

Hudson Mohawke was first brought to everyone's attention when, alongside Mike Slott and Oddisee, he dropped the Herald's Of Change 'Show You' 12" on Ireland's much loved All City Records. Selling out in an instant, it marked the arrival of a prodigal talent and set him on a path of global success and notoriety. Continuing to butter us all up with some of the freshest and finest off kilter hip hop since Dilla, Heralds Of Change brought more heat with a series of releases on All City, each selling faster than the last and each garnering more and more praise from all quarters.

Hudson Mohawke is following up those early ripples with a big splash. His solo productions have pricked the ears of LA's Ubiquity label, Holland's Rush Hour and London's Werk Discs all of which have been quick to enlist Hudson's remarkable remix capabilities. His potent unmistakable mesh of bionic beats and future grooves has struck a chord with music heads the world over with Gilles Peterson and Mary Anne Hobbs both giving Hudson serious air time on their BBC Radio 1 shows as well as Benji B's Radio 6 Music slot giving support. A forthcoming album and a series of singles, due out on world renowned Warp Records, are sure to keep his star in the ascendancy.

Having battled under the name DJ Itchy until 2005, Hudson can add the fact that he is current Scottish ITF Champion as well as the youngest ever UK DMC finalist (at the age of 15) to his CV. Having left his battling days behind and now concentrating on production and party rocking in the clubs all over the UK, Europe and beyond, Hudson Mohawke is crafting a sound that is distinctly his own.
