The idea of pushing sounds until they become something different and exciting is at the centre of the creative process behind this album.

Timmy Trumpet

In less than a decade, Timmy Trumpet has successfully transgressed from the international stage as an acclaimed Jazz musician to the realm of global dance music. Now as a combined DJ/Instrumentalist, he's ranked in the top 10 DJ's in Australia (ITM Poll), performed at Ibiza's Pacha and Miami's WMC, and mixed both Ministry of Sound and Pacha CD's featuring his own Aria Chart smash hit 'Sassafras'.

Within two years he secured a position as the leading solo trumpet player in the Australian All-Star Stage Band, taking part in an extensive tour through Sweden, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark and Holland covering some of the world's biggest Jazz Festivals including Montreux and the North Sea Jazz Festivals. After developing perfect pitch at a young age, Timmy's progression into dance music has been propelled by his ability to effortlessly mix in-key, mastering the art of improvisation."After discovering Jazz I began to jam over everything and anything, mainly stuff on the radio. It wasn't long until I discovered house music, met a DJ, then played my first gig. I drove home that night knowing this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life." The Live DJ/trumpeter cross-over experiment proved a great success, providing the launching pad for a career in dance music. After landing a contract with legendary house label HedKandi, he jumped on board the next flight to the UK, which lead to touring & performing to record crowds at South Korea's Mass, Thailand's Full Moon Party, and playing alongside Erick Morillo at Pacha Ibiza. Armed with a pocketful of contacts, Timmy was determined to create a name for himself in Australia…Enter his next big break- The Stafford Brothers- who heard of his talents while touring in Ibiza. "They introduced me to the Australian market outside of Sydney, and I've learnt so much from them about music, business and life," Timmy says, attributing the brothers as good role models. Establishing a strong bond with the DJ duo he became their "brother from another mother" and their main supporting act while touring throughout the country.Timmy would soon find himself a co-star on The Stafford Brothers FOX8 reality TV series. Timmy Trumpet's rise to the top of the DJ world showed no signs of slowing down, with the dynamite instrumentalist securing himself main support act of Mo-town legend Stevie Wonder on his only Australian show in 2011. After a whopping 70,000 votes, he was ranked Australia's #7 DJ (#2 in NSW) in the 2011 ITM Music Awards.FAST FORWARD TO THE NOW; Taking over mainstages across Australia with the king-size Future Music Festival National Tour, filming 'The Stafford Brothers' Season 3 in L.A, as well as mixing this years much anticipated and renowned 'Ministry of Sound Sessions 9 CD' featuring 2 of his own tracks, Timmy Trumpet is proving he is a force to be reckoned with.

Ember

Held in the highest esteem by his peers and the masses, Ember is without question one of Australia's most in demand genre hopping beatsmiths. Crossing the country on a weekly basis, leaving jaws dropped upon sweat drenched dance floors; this star student of the Sydney club scene has definitely earned his stripes. Sharing stages with the worlds dance music elite, he has held his own at Stereosonic, Field Day, Splendour In The Grass, Shore Thing, Big Day Out, Parklife and Future Music Festival amongst other iconic party spots. Warming the faders and ransacking riders with everyone from Snoop Dogg to Skrillex, Duck Sauce to Diplo, building a resume along the way that any mother would be more than proud of. Keeping his ear to the ground and head out of the clouds, Ember has been asked on board national tours with Ministry of Sound three times in the past two years, recently mixing the renowned 'Annual for 2015', after touring the country with Joel Fletcher for 'Clubbers Guide to 2014', and Chardy for 'Electro House Sessions 6'.

SCNDL

If time has taught us one thing, it is that Melbourne duo SCNDL deals in consistent dance floor destruction – no apologies or vowels required.The creative union of Tom Grant and Adam Amuso, SCNDL's bouncy yet highly-tuned peak time tendencies have made them a breakout force to be reckoned with on the global dance music radar in 2014. By the time their sophomore hit Gypsy had scaled the Beatport electro house top 15 and put them in the good books with the likes of Porter Robinson and Dada Life, SCNDL were one of the definitive stories of ascension to emerge from Melbourne, Australia, ground zero for the eponymous Melbourne Bounce contagion that's caused a revolution in Australian clubland and is now legitimately airbourne and spreading virus-like on a planetary level.A remix for breakout US star MAKJ's Hold Up saw the duo infect the Beatport Electro House top 20 once again, immediately leading to them being placed on watch lists with some of EDM's sharpest tastemakers.Bleed with fellow Aussie Timmy Trumpet emerged on North American imprint Monstercat in 2013, scaling the heights of the Beatport main chart (where it peaked at 12), and conclusively establishing their scientifically-engineered bass lines at world best practice level. With support accumulating from the likes of Tommy Trash, Chuckie, TJR, Tocadisco, Lazy Rich, Henry Fong and MAKJ, the duo ended 2013 with DJs and dance junkies alike craving their refined club getup amid a sustained international bounce blitzkrieg that's becoming increasingly difficult to ignore.So much so, gargantuan pop name Flo Rida came knocking, the result a re-imagining of his single How I Feel as a driving Melbourne Bounce juggernaut which is bound to signal their arrival on the world stage with a definitive sonic boom.Meanwhile back on home soil the duo simultaneously held down three spots in the ARIA club chart top 10, confirming their ability to dominate the club landscape on the home front while engaged in expeditionary assaults further afield offshore. In 2014, the word at camp SCNDL remains affirmative action on a global scale, with iconic club mega brand Pacha inviting them to curate their own regular night at their burgeoning Sydney outpost and designing a large-scale mega production uniquely around them. There'll also be an incoming single release with Robbie Rivera's Juicy Music imprint, new single 40 Thieves, an appearance at the Juicy Beach Party for WMC 2014 and a rumoured European and UK release for Bleed.This is the unapologetic face of low-end favoring dance music. Hold the vowels, take the plunge and prepare for the hell-borne sound of Melbourne.

Tommy Trash

Head banging, unmistakable locks at large and fist in the air, Tommy Trash is not your stereotypical dance music icon. Armed with an arsenal of his own carefully created anthems, he has rejected the clean-shaven no-nonsense image of many a peer. Tommy's work hard play hard antics have carved him a unique position in a scene in desperate need of rebels. Outside his party-hard stage presence, the Grammy and VMA nominated producer's approach to mind-blowing music remains as heartfelt as they come. With Platinum records around the world, singles on labels ranging from Axtone to Fool's Gold, from Refune to Mau5trap, and from Spinnin' to Owsla and Boys Noize, every new installment of his diverse, floor-filling productions lay testament to the pride the Aussie takes in his blazing, musical legacy. It's no wonder that the likes of Rolling Stone and MTV have marked him out as 'One To Watch'.From the most prestigious nightspots around the globe and the ever-expanding global festivals that he so seamlessly conquers to the grimiest warehouse parties, there's no stage too grand or miniscule for him to tailor his adrenaline-fueled sets to. In line with his successive industry triumphs, the road ahead looks set to comfortably accommodate the rare energy and characteristics that Tommy continues to bring to dance music.
