Neil Armstrong has come a long way since his humble beginnings in New York's hiphop underground. A mere ten years into his career, Neil finds himself as the Global Music Ambassador for Adidas and as Jay-Z's tour DJ (from 2008 to 2009). Catapulted to the highest-regard in hip-hop, Neil is instantly becoming the most sought-after DJ in the world.

Blackbird Blackbird is the moniker/musical outlet of San Francisco wunderkind Mikey Maramag, whose deep, textured, and hypnotic pop songs have captured the ears of Pitchfork, Transparent, Prefix Magazine, The Fader, and other musical taste-makers alike.

Rising Bay Area female emcee Hopie has powers on the mic and beyond, with a doctorate from U.C. Hastings and skills in everything from violin to spoken word to guitar. Her debut album, Diamond Dame, garnered national attention and a nomination for URB's Next 1000, immediately making Hopie an artist to watch.

Made in Bombay, born & raised in the U.K., and based in San Francisco, Micropixie (aka MPX) is an experimental recording artist whose style can't be confined to any one genre. Described as sensuous and textural, look out for her new album, "The Good, the Beige & the Ugly".

DJ TAP .10
DJ Tap.10 is the official DJ/Remixer of the heavily buzzed-about Honor Roll Crew, a Bay Area collective of rappers, producers, DJs, and singers. He has been spinning coast-to-coast with the hottest selections, putting it down with his own brand of R&B soul, progressive hip-hop, and original tracks.
