Matt Shadetek
Matt Shadetek
Matt Shadetek is one of New York City's most exciting producers. His live sets encompass contemporary dancehall, UK funky, and dubstep, all delivered with Shadetek's unique production voice which bridges the underground-mainstream divide. He's one of the rare DJs who can rock a crowd with sets composed solely of his own dancefloor bangers and remixes.

Matt's early love for hiphop and dancehall along with edgy electronic sounds led to his Warp Records debut album Burnerism as part of the duo Team Shadetek. While Matt was living in Berlin and touring Europe, the followup LP Pale Fire was released, featuring the underground hit "Brooklyn Anthem". The hit song kick-started a dance craze in the Brooklyn reggae scene (leading to over 100 fan videos of kids dancing to it).

Returning to NYC, Matt founded the Dutty Artz label/production crew with DJ /Rupture. Shadetek produced Jahdan Blakkamoore's debut album, Buzzrock Warrior (!K7), pioneering its signature reggae-dubstep-rap sound. In 2009 he also teamed up with Rupture to release the mix album Solar Life Raft (The Agriculture). His latest release, on Dutty Artz, is Flowers, an effervescent solo instrumental effort that references dubstep, uk funky and garage. He has toured internationally both solo and accompanied by Jahdan as vocalist.
Geko Jones
Geko Jones
Geko Jones is a Brooklyn-based Puerto-lombian DJ/Producer and vibe springer. He is a founding member of both the New York Tropical and Que Bajo?! party franchises. He is also a partner and co-owner of the Dutty Artz record label with producer Matt Shadetek and DJ /Rupture. His mixes span the tropical hemispheres and collage together globally sonic hours of dancefloor mayhem. Renowned by top DJ's and producers of the digital cumbia scene in Latin America and European bass-pundits alike, Jones is one of the select few DJ's pushing forward the latin agenda in a world-wide tropical bass scene.
