Canadian Jonny White, acting Head of No.19 Music, is now the lone force behind the influential project that began as a collaborative effort with long time friend Kenny Glasgow in 2009. The prolific producer’s original style landed AD at the forefront of a major underground music movement, transcending genre barriers and breaking down walls as few other underground artists have. Their game-changing contribution to the electronic music landscape has been undeniable, garnering accolades such as ‘#1 Track of the Year’ at the Beatport Awards in 2011, the iTunes #2 ‘Best Electronic Album’ of 2011, hailed as the “hottest duo in dance music” from media outlets such as DJ Mag, awarded the 2010 ‘Track of the Year’ for their breakout hit ‘Without You’ by long-standing authorities like Resident Advisor (UK), Groove Mag (Germany), and #2 in Mixmag (US), and voted #6 Top DJ’s in the world in 2012.

It’s about leaving your mark on the world. It’s about leaving your Autograf.
Vicetone + Jayceeoh | 06.04.2016
As childhood friends, Ruben and Victor had lofty dreams of playing music to crowds of thousands of people chanting to their songs. Several hours from any signs of nightlife in Amsterdam and with nothing more than a small home studio in rural Netherlands, the duo set out on their goal – crafting a harmonic, melody driven, Big Room sound that is as easy to listen to in your home as it is on the dance floor.
Tchami + Malaa | Grand Prix | 06.10.2016
Hailing from Paris, Tchami, is no stranger to the dance music industry. Coming on to the scene with his remix of Janet Jackson’s “Go Deep”. The track became an instant over night hit! With much critical acclaim, he soon followed up with his first original production “Promesses” with Kaleem Taylor via Fool’s Gold Records and Ministry of Sound. It was not too long after “Promesses” that Tchami released “Shot Caller” under the same EP for Fool’s Gold Clubhouse. From then on, Tchami subsequently released his remixes of AlunaGeorge’s “You Know You Like It”, JackU’s “Take U There”, and many more. Having gained the support from some of today’s top DJs such as A-Trak, Diplo, Dillon Francis and Skrillex, to name a few.
In March 2015, Tchami released his first single off of his upcoming EP “After Life” as well as the music video. Soon following he released the remix package for the single featuring producers Point Point, Malaa, DJ Snake & Mercer, San Holo, and Jauz. The next single off the EP, titled “Missing You” features AC Slater and the vocal talent of Kaleem Taylor, is set to come out by the end of this month. The exact release date of the whole After Life EP has yet to be announced but it’s something all fans are yearning over! Tchami is taking Europe by storm this summer from the likes of London, Ibiza, Amsterdam, and many more. North Americans will get the chance to experience “The After Life” on his upcoming tour this Fall featuring his own production and music from the EP.
Guy Gerber | DSTRKT au Grand Prix | 06.10.2016
Guy Gerber has always favored the road less traveled. The Israeli DJ thrives on confounding expectations. What other underground DJ could collaborate with one of hip-hops biggest moguls, Puff Daddy, or start a left-field night at one of Ibiza’s most commercial clubs, Pacha? What other producer blends the worlds of melancholy and euphoria so effortlessly, or turns in a breakup album as an official mix for a revered club brand? It’s these kind of contradictions that define
Gerber’s compelling duality.
Claude VonStroke | DSTRKT au Grand Prix | 06.10.2016
In this day and age of music cross-pollination, Claude VonStroke sits at the forefront of all that is good, proper, and most importantly, fun. He’s just as at home remixing Kenny Larkin or Rihanna as he is dropping multiple underground hits. DJ-wise, his relentless touring of every major city, festival and, basement after-party around the world has only enriched this unique perspective on music.
Justin Jay | DSTRKT | 06.17.2016

Claptone | DSTRKT | 06.24.2016
In a now long forgotten world, many generations ago, a bird like shape emerged from wooded darkness, floating and fluttering, drifting and dreaming. Backlit by a bright glow of iridescent light, the undecipherable form wore a dazzling golden mask. Its long beak swooped down like an inverted horn and since then, people have referred to the mythical being simply as Claptone.
Years spending wandering medieval landscapes have informed Claptone’s view of the world, experiencing both magical mystery and muted melancholy he enchanted onlookers with occult instruments and beguiling sounds. Forever surrounded by a sense of intrigue, the world soon cottoned on to the elusive yet enchanting musical powers of this otherworldly beast. The results are that today his shamanistic sonic powers take him all around the world.
