SATURDAY MAY 18 Surrender Las Vegas presents Diplo

Diplo, Diplodocus, Wes Gully, and Wes Diplo are all pseudonyms of Wesley Pentz, a Philadelphia-based producer and DJ since 2003. Together with DJ Low Budget he runs Hollertronix, a party and music collective. In addition to his solo career, he has worked with Sri-Lankan/Tamil singer and artist M.I.A.. The two were also romantically involved. Pentz’s alias, short for Diplodocus, derives from his childhood fascination with dinosaurs.

As a DJ, Diplo is characterized by his eclectic, often 80s-oriented mashups, mixtapes, and live sets. On his full-length solo effort Florida, however, his sound is closer to sample-based cinematic instrumental hip hop, not unlike the work of DJ Shadow.

Born in Mississippi and raised across the southern United States, Diplo picked up much of the local culture while growing up there. Music styles such as dirty south, crunk and miami bass are now trademark ingredients of the Hollertronix output. Pentz’s solo work is also influenced by Southern Gothic and other southern literature. Additionally, world music is a strong musical influence on Diplo, especially baile funk which he encountered whilst traveling in Brazil.

Diplo was recently signed to Ninja Tune, on the Big Dada imprint. In 2006, he started his own label, Mad Decent, signing Brazilian baile funk group Bonde do Role and DJ Blaqstarr.

FRIDAY MAY 17 Surrender Las Vegas presents Dillon Francis

Almost out of nowhere, Los Angeles’ Dillon Francis has broken from the throng of young electronic music dj/producers. With a stream of world-class remixes and releases, Dillon has caught the attention of some of the top players in club land, including Steve Aoki, Diplo, Will I. Am, Drop The Lime, Sinden, and Tittsworth to name some. In less than a year his blistering productions have been heavily supported by Major Lazer, who opened their show with “Westside!,” a Dutch House-flavored monster that was consistently rinsed by top djs on both sides of the pond, including Sinden and Steve Aoki. The tune is finally seeing a proper release on Diplo’s Mad Decent label, where Dillon will be releasing his “Masta Blasta” EP as well in the near future..

From his first dubstep release on Play Me Records, the heavy “Take Me High” peaked at No. 13 on the Beatport dubstep chart and was played in full by Rusko in every one of his sets for his current OMG tour. In the coming months, Dillon will have releases on Mad Decent, Dim Mak, Top Billin’, as well as Plant Music, where he will be releasing his next club EP. At ease behind the turntables and in the studio, in the electro world and in dubstep, Dillon is what you would call an open-format electronic dj who sees no delineation between making music and playing it. He has gotten huge support from the most important dance music blogs (Dim Mak, Mad Decent, Discobelle, Gotta Dance Dirty) ever since releasing his first bootlegs last year, and 2011 promises to be Dillon’s breakout year.

WEDNESDAY MAY 15 Surrender Las Vegas presents Bassnectar

By combining sound and force with weight, the Bassnectar experience engulfs the senses. The experience of Bassnectar is more visceral than auditory, as the music sets any stage for an adventure without rules or limitations. On Bassnectar’s stage, there is no hesitation in fusing the familiar with the strange or the classic with the cutting edge.

Bassnectar is the brainchild of Lorin Ashton, and his open-sourced musical project is as diverse as it is imaginary, as raw as it is meticulous, and as fierce as it is stunning. Spanning the spectrum of sonic style, the music draws inspiration from every genre imaginable and supplies a synthesis of intense, wobbling basslines and hypnotic soundscapes for a devout international audience that desires the beautiful and the bestial in the same breath.

In whatever medium Bassnectar works, music is the lure and social impact is the sincere intention. According to Ashton, “We are so blessed, and so deeply fortunate to be alive and awake right now…it’s a basic truth, but it’s very powerful. I think privilege confers responsibility, and Bassnectar is a reflection of that opportunity to give back; the motion of my cells bouncing back at the world.”

SATURDAY MAY 11 Surrender Las Vegas presents Porter Robinson

This 20-year-old talent has been touted by his peers (read Tiësto, Skrillex and Deadmau5) as one of the nu-breed saviors of electronic music, and having only experienced the limelight for a short amount of time, his achievements paint the picture of a bright future.

2011 saw Porter achieve what some do in an entire career. He provided tour support to Tiësto and Skrillex, as well as debut appearances at Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival and Electric Zoo that led to him entering DJ Mag’s Top 100 and the Billboard Top 21 Under 21 chart. His Spitfire EP, which crashed Beatport’s servers on release, smashed its way to the #1 position in the process and held fort for 2 weeks solid. Add in a couple official remixes for Lady Gaga and Avicii, and one would think things could not get bigger for the young musician.

However, 2012 saw Porter growing even further with appearances in top-billed slots on those same festivals plus Coachella, Tomorrowland, Creamfields and Lollapalooza. He began residencies at XS and Surrender in Las Vegas, made a European headline tour debut, spun a live Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1, and released the hit single “Language” to great acclaim and constant radio spins around the world – not to mention #1 spots on the Beatport Overall and iTunes Dance charts.

As Porter wraps up his summer North American headline tour, he looks forward to scheduling a new batch of releases – including a slew of exciting collaboration tracks – and the rest of what is sure to be a thrilling year.

‘Life works in mysterious ways. One minute you’re doing one thing, then one decision later the whole path of your life has been redrawn’

The unlikely crossing of paths between two classically trained musicians at an EDM show over ten years ago has blossomed into the successful DJ, producing, and remixing team Sultan + Ned Shepard. Using their vast knowledge of all musical genres, the Montreal duo has created a melodic blend of rock, pop, and house that has received worldwide acclaim from fans and critics alike. Sultan + Ned Shepard’s innovative approach, easily-accessible sound and unforgettable live sets have allowed the team to quickly establish themselves at the forefront of the house music scene.

Few producers have managed to maintain their studio output with such stamina and consistency as Sultan + Ned Shepard. On the studio front, they were tagged by Beatport as the ‘kings of the progressive scene’ with countless chart-topping productions and remixes including their collaboration with Funkagenda on Past Dreaming, and Crimson Sun featuring Grammy winners Dirty Vegas. They also became one of 2011′s most in-demand remixers with their unique take on Kaskade’s Fire In Your New Shoes, Tiesto and Calvin Harris’ Century, and Morgan Page’s Fight For You, amongst others.

Continuing their hot streak, Sultan and Ned collaborated with the ‘Queen of Clubs’ Nadia Ali, releasing Call My Name. This smash hit peaked at #5 on the Billboard Dance Chart, #2 on the UK Music Chart and #1 on the Beatport Electro chart, and in the process cemented its status as one of this year’s anthems, with major club and radio support through the US and Europe. Following up on the success of Call My Name, Sultan & Ned teamed up with Dutch superstar Fedde Le Grand to create the unstoppable monster anthem Running. Already reaching the Top Ten on Beatport, it has received praise and support from some of the top DJs in the world, including the pied-piper of dance music, BBC Radio One legend Pete Tong.
