* LADY BANDIT - Sexy Breaks/House :: Dayton, Ohio
Break On Thru Productions/Give Us A Break! Records/Next Era Entertainment
Taking turntables as a debt in 2002, Lady Bandit fell upon this opportunity to dj, so she took it! Beth said the only way she'd ever stop djing would be if she stopped having fun or stopped progressing. Now, 9 years later she's still bangin out dancefloors throughout the midwest and beyond. Known as the "Midwest Breakbeat Queen" originally out of Dayton, Ohio. Bandit always bringing back her original influences of DJ Fixx, Icey, Infiniti, Sharaz and nameless others in the "Funky Florida Breaks" movement with a touch of that "Nu Skool Funk" that the UK delivers today. This lady never stoppin those nasty basslines & Sexy Breaks with a side of that dirty Electro House. You can also check out Lady Bandit under the alias DJ SazzaFrazz, playing Drum & Bass!
* DJ DEFI - Multi-Genre :: Indianapolis
DEFI has been DJing for over 10 years now, starting out as a Trance DJ and progressing throughout all genres of electronic music, finally finding his passion for break-beats and tech-funk. DEFI has shared the stage with many headlining acts throughout his career such as; DJ Icey, Paul Oakenfold, Forest Green, Reid Speed, Dara & Photek just to name a few. When DEFI hits the decks, he plays only for the crowd, so you NEVER know what you're going to get, but its always a guarantee that the dance floor will be full with energy every time he takes the stage!!
* BIG KYLE - Electro House :: Indianapolis
Big Kyle has been in the electronic scene for over 10 years. Big Kyle started DJing, like most, at friend’s house parties and then expanded to play clubs and events at different venues across the Midwest. Influenced originally by the likes of Badboy Bill, DJ Dan, and Richard Vision, Kyle’s influences have expanded over the years to include artists from several different genres. When Kyle plays expect a remix to be thrown in there somewhere to blend the old school with some new. One thing is for sure and that it is bound to be 4 to the floor with the sole intention of getting peoples backs off the wall and their feet moving.

In junior high, Deanne would listen to the local college radio station that was playing the freshest music every Friday night. Unaware that it would ever play a part in her future, Deanne began developing her "DJ skills" making mix tapes of nothing more than a collection of the hottest songs recorded from the radio. "I can remember sitting in the dark, past my bedtime, with the music really low, so my mom wouldn't hear me. I would wait for hours for a certain song to come on, try and perfectly time recording the beginning and the ending of the song so that I got every beat. I would record the next song right behind the other with no gaps, commercials or DJ voices. I would just jam to those mixtapes, but always excited to make a new one. It seems pretty lame, but I had no idea that it would later be a part of my life."
In 1996 Deanne moved to Tampa and it was here that she got a taste of what club music was all about and what she had been missing by growing up in the Midwest. She immersed herself in the music, trying to find all the tracks she was hearing in the clubs. This continual search for the newest, freshest tracks ignited a fire and unveiled a passion.
It wasn't until she moved back to the Midwest, in 1999, that the pieces started falling into place. She began spinning at the only club in Bloomington, Indiana with a house music format. In the spring of 2003, Deanne moved to Indianapolis and made her Indy debut spinning at the official Indy Pride Festival T-Dance. Late in 2003, Deanne landed a prime Friday night weekly mix show slot on, Miami-based, Energy Internet Radio/EnergyRadio.fm. A few T-dances and special appearances later, she earned a monthly spot in the rotating line-up at Indy's hottest club, Talbott Street, which has hosted talents such as Paul Oakenfold, Gabriel and Dresden, Manny Lehman, Barry Harris, Mike Cruz, Twisted Dee, Tracy Young and many more.
With weekend attendance numbers near 1000 at the Indy club, Deanne is no stranger to holding a large dance floor captive to her style of mixing. With influences such as Chicago house legend, Ralphi Rosario, the masterful Junior Vasquez, and the perennial crowd-pleaser, Manny Lehman, Deanne's DJ style is defined by the spirit and energy of house music. Vocal, progressive, underground and tribal beats and rhythms are combined to take her listeners on a unique journey that is marked with sensuality, undeniable energy, and wonderful "dance floor drama". "When I really started going to the clubs and hearing how music was supposed to be played, the best DJ's took me on a musical journey -- a ride. That's what I want for my listeners, a night of music that they remember and come back for over and over again."
