This year’s Camp Bisco line up is stacked with huge names like Skrillex and Bassnectar, all star DJs like A-Trak and Dada Life, and artists with a cult following like Shpongle, not to mention the three nights of The Disco Biscuits. But looking deeper at some of the smaller names in black on the second half of the poster, is a treasure trove of up and coming artists are revealed. Here’s a list of some artists that you should definitely get acquainted with before you make your way to the Indian Lookout Country Club.

The M Machine

Not much is known about The M Machine other than they hail from San Francisco, but they sure are making an impact on dance floors around the world. Besides Camp Bisco, The M Machine are tackling some of the biggest festivals across the country, including Outside Lands, Electric Forest, Nocturnal Wonderland, Starscape, and more. Their heavy, infectious bass lines drive their sound, while still managing to retain the conventions of a pop song. The M Machine are signed to Skrillex’s OSWLA label which will release their full length album on April 24th. Their sound is similar to fellow OSWLA signees Zedd and Porter Robinson.

Kill The Noise

Kill The Noise is the stage name of native New York producer Jake Stanczak. From his drum and bass beginnings, Kill The Noise has recently made a name for himself with banging dubstep tracks and a slew of big name remixes. His collaboration with Skrillex and 12th Planet, ‘Right On Time’, is one of the hottest moombahton tracks out right now and has been dropped by a literal who’s-who of superstar DJs. He’s also responsible for one of the official remixes of Nero’s ‘Must Be The Feeling’, and produced and was featured on two songs from Korn’s latest album, The Path of Totality.

Alvin Risk

Alvin Risk is another artist who is about to completely blow up who is signed by Skrillex’s OSWLA label. The insanely talented producer gained attention with a slew of remixes, including everything from Fun’s ‘We Are Young’ to Steve Aoki’s ‘Earthquakey People’ – his remix of Kaskade’s ‘Eyes’ is a personal favorite of mine. He is also constantly producing new music, seamlessly switching styles between dubstep, moombahton, and house. He recently released a collaborative EP with Tittsworth with produced the track ‘Pendejas’, an instant moombahton classic.


At last year’s Camp Bisco, Zoogma’s demo CD made the rounds and burst this livetronica act into recognition. This year, Zoogma returns with a bigger following with stops at Summer Camp and Electric Forest. The Oxford, MS based band blends rock, jazz, and funk into an electronic setting, using a five piece band to create music that sounds like it’s coming from a laptop. Their beat driven music erupts into an all out dance party that will be comforting to those familiar with the livetronica scene.


This up and coming dubstep DJ made waves last year with his collaboration with MartyParty, Deathstar, whose remix of Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep’ was an absolute banger. Since then, Minnesotta has released a slew of new tracks, remixing everything from Elie Goulding to Sander Van Doorn. His remixes of classic tracks like the Beach Boy’s ‘California Dreamin’, Pink Floyd’s ‘Speak to Me/Breathe’, and The Notorious B.I.G’s ‘Juicy’ leaves crowds pleased and aching for more.

The Killabits

Toronto based producers The Killabits are fast making a name for themselves with their blend of dubstep, moombahton, drum and bass, and electro house. Their moombahton remix of Jeuce’s ‘As We Move’ entered the Beatport top 10, and their collaboration with Zeds Dead, ‘Bassmentality’ is an absolute banger. These guys have support from some of the biggest names in dubstep and are only going to continue riding the wave of success they are currently on.

Future Rock

Future Rock are Camp Bisco Vets, first performing at Camp Bisco V in 2006. That year they performed two sets at the festival, one of original productions, and a late night set full of only Aphex Twin covers – and that just begins the awesomeness of this group. The three piece band uses live instruments to create decidedly electronic dance music, blending elements of progressive house with dance rock. Each musician also has a synthesizer in addition to their live instrument, which they use to sample and layer sounds throughout the sets.


In not even two years, Revolvr has gone from unknown to one of the most exciting names in electronic dance music. With very little support, his remix of Scooter and Lavelle’s ‘Beats Inside My Head’ skyrocketed to number two on Beatport’s electro chart, and was eventually picked up by Tiesto, who constantly dropped it throughout his Club Life tour. Since then, Revolvr’s tracks have been picked up by a slew of internationally renowned DJs from Above and Beyond to Porter Robinson. His sound has evolved too, producing some heavy hitting dubstep tracks as off late. This guy is someone to keep an eye out as he gains more and more support.

Kung Fu

Connecticut’s Kung Fu is bringing back funk music with a modern twang. Their Brooklyn Bowl residency featured guest spots from everyone from Jennifer Hartswick and Natalie Cressman of the Trey Anastasio Band, to Barber from the Disco Biscuits. The band, which features former members of The Breakfast and RAQ, creates extremely danceable funk music with influences from the modern dance scene, chock full of extreme improvisation. Definitely a band worth catching.


Ok, so Gramatik may be cheating a little bit due to his large scale exposure, but he’s still listed on the bottom half of the Camp Bisco line up and he is definitely someone you should know. The Slovenian producer has sold over 100,000 tracks on Beatport and is constantly praised as one of the top ‘Chill Out’ artsits by the website. His remix of Led Zeppelin’s classic ‘Stairway to Heaven’ shot to number one on HypeMachine, and he has gained major recognition in multiple spots opening up for Pretty Lights, who signed him to his namesake label. Gramatik just finished a collaboration with Break Science, titled ‘Boogie Down’ that is an absolute banger. Gramatik’s unique chill out, glitch hop productions and high energy DJ sets are a must see.
