Event Guests:

ill-ehsa - Vancouver-born and Colorado-based music producer, artist and DJ ill-esha has crafted a long-standing soundscape of bass music throughout her career, continuously evolving her musical stylings and bridging gaps between electronic, hip hop and soul. Recognized as an extremely rare and diverse artist in the EDM scene, ill-esha is constantly pushing the boundaries of live sets with everything from loop pedals to keytars. Constantly evolving her dynamic and versatile musical taste, she is a perfect example of electronic music’s transition towards live instrumentation and indie pop sensibility.

Mr Bill - Mr. Bill has been a leader in the audio production world for years. Beyond producing dazzlingly intricate originals, remixes, and collaborations with other stars of the industry, his eagerness to share his massive library of technical know-how has made him just as sought-after for studio work as he is for highly energetic and crowd-pleasing live performances.

Mr. Bill has toured North America and Australia with a live drummer, supported Beats Antique on multiple U.S. tours, and has played major festivals around the world. Last year he scored the Nicolas Cage horror-comedy MOM AND DAD, and his techno side project Electrocado was signed to deadmau5’ mau5trap label for a multiple EP contract. Mr. Bill will release his latest IDM album, Apophenia, on October 9 (also on mau5trap)
