Z-Trip is not just a DJ. He is more than a producer. He is a musical pioneer. And he sits at the helm of the highest echelon of DJ royalty. As a performer, Z-Trip is revered as one of the best live performance DJs in history, by both fans and peers. It’s no surprise fans voted him “America’s Best D” in 2009, beating out over 100 other DJ’s in DJ Times highly-acclaimed annual readers poll. His worldwide sold-out shows continue to set attendance records while drawing critical praise. “One of the great musical moments from Coachella (2002) was the frenzied set by turntable wizard Z-Trip. He had fans howling and bobbing, closing his set with a surprise appearance by Beck,” wrote the Los Angeles Times. It’s a fact that many call him the “godfather of mash-ups,” as he is one of the originators of the genre.
Switch (Dave Taylor formerly Major Lazer)
Switch is a UK-based DJ, songwriter, sound engineer and record producer. He is best known for his work with M.I.A.. In the fidget house genre, Switch runs his own music label "Dubsided", as well as the label Counterfeet, established in 2006 with fellow producer Sinden. He has released various singles under his own name, and is also well known for remixing and producing for many major artists.
He has also produced tracks for artists like Christina Aguilera, Santigold, Amanda Blank, Nicola Roberts and Beyonce.
In 2009 Switch collaborated with fellow producer Diplo (whom he met through artist M.I.A.) to create the album Guns Don't Kill People... Lazers Do under the name Major Lazer.
