Reid Speed has been a dancefloor destroyer for over a decade, and is second to none when it comes to heavy bass music rinseouts of all genres. She currently runs Play Me Records and Play Me Too, the United States’ leading dubstep, drumstep and bass-of- all- genres labels while holding down a full production and tour schedule. As one of the first US DJs to champion speed garage & 2 step (which have become todays’s fidget house and dubstep), her new label’s quick rise to the top of the dance charts reflects her continually forward thinking musical evolution.
Reid started out in the New York City underground working behind the counter at the legendary Breakbeat Science store, holding residencies with Stuck on Earth, Direct Drive & Camouflage while in college at the School of Visual Arts. Drum and bass at the start, she was soon seduced by the sounds of 2 step and speed garage and began DJing full time, producing tracks and throwing her own events. Signing to Breakbeat Science’s label in 2001, she released her first mix “Resonance” to much critical acclaim, and successfully followed it up with 2003′s “Life After Dark.” On subsequent tours with Om artists Ming & FS and Colette she honed her precise genre mashing mixing skills and developed a synergy with her crowds that is unmatched. With both her and her label’s tunes and mixes getting dropped around the world every day, this girl’s musical outreach and undeniable popularity will only continue to expand.
A young producer taking the dubstep world by storm; at age 19, Alex Epps aka Cyberoptics first made his big smash into the scene with his release “Geisha” on PLAY ME Records. Released in May of 2010, Geisha climbed to number 1 on Beatport.com and held it’s place in the top 5 for over a month, battling producers such as Borgore and Doctor P.
Hailing from Memphis TN, Cyberoptics is greatly influenced by the dirty south but also the wide varietys of electronic music aswell. With a unique style of different themes, deep sludge bass and heavy sub, it’s almost impossible not to move your body to these alien sounding bass tones!
Cyber’s latest 4 track release from Play Me Records: “The Tie Fighter EP” exploded onto the Beatport top 20 with songs “Pimpin” hitting #3, “Geisha VIP” right behind at #4, and “Tie Fighter” and “Toasty” topping out at 14 and 17.
Currently Cyberoptics is hard at work on a full length album, touring with Play Me heroes Reid Speed & FS, and working closely with other producers such as Liquid Stranger, Quartus Saul, Dayn, Chrispy, Robokop and F3tch.
FS is an American producer, composer, DJ and musician based out of Brooklyn, New York. He continues his bass music odyssey with a string of chart topping dubstep hits, including ‘Yup’and ‘Touch O Klass’ both hitting #1 on Beatport’s Top 100 Dubstep chart, and ‘Shake Dat Ass’ hitting #4. True to his signature sound, FS delivers electro-glitch-ridden and intricately woven sound spheres, loaded with distinct, bass-driven production. He gained critical acclaim in the EDM scene with his ground breaking band Ming + FS, releasing the seminal album Hell’s Kitchen on Om Records. Soon after he founded record label and creative agency, Patriarch Recordings, producing indie artists and scoring music for movie trailers, TV and film.
FS has shared the stage with the likes of Sting, The Roots, St. Germain, Run-DMC, Burning Spear, A Tribe Called Quest, and Moby, and has toured the world playing festivals such as Coachella, Mount Fuji Rock, ACA World Sound Festival, Audiotistic, Sundance Film Festival, and more. A pop culture aficionado, his studio companions are a muted TV, flickering images of Adult Swim and Family Guy, and the sounds of New York City (sirens, crashes, and car horns) pouring in through an open window. At its core, this urban perspective represents the bedrock of his musical and artistic process.
