LIVE 101.5 Jingle Bash Night 1!
“Beginning in his home state of Maryland, upcoming star Logic aka Bobby Tarantino (born Sir Robert Bryson Hall II) has been crushing the rap scene since he was 17 years old. Logic cites the Wu Tang Clan as his influence in the early days, and his dream is to work with Kanye West.
Growing up without a father figure in his life, Logic left home and has been flying solo ever since. A compulsive perfectionist, Logic is “…always in the studio recording and mixing,” and doesn’t frequently “party and hang out, play video games and go on vacation.”Above anything, the results show in his lyrics. He is the most dedicated rapper in the game, hands down. To this date, Logic has dropped two mixtapes, entitled Young, Broke, & Infamous and Young Sinatra, the latter receiving high praise for its hits ‘Mind of Logic’, ‘Stewie Griffin’, and ‘Juice’.
Logic has gained a multitude of followers since his days of small shows at the University of Maryland. In December, he stole the show at Webster Hall, exciting the crowd of 1,500 with his lyricism and energy. Logic has stated that “Bobby Soxer, long story short, is a term for my female fans. Back in the day Frank Sinatra had called his fans Bobby Soxers.” The rest of his fans are known as the Ratt Pack (Real All The Time), an ode to the jazz/swing group of which his ‘Young Sinatra’ mantra draws its name.
Humbled by his success, Logic frequently gives credit to his team, consisting of Big Lenbo (his closest friend), Chris Zarou (his manager), OB and 6ix of The Official (his producers), and lastly GRVTY (Camera Man, Director behind Logic’s visuals), for continuing to push and assist him in his rise to the top. 6ix is now also his official DJ.
Logic is an artist with great success behind him, who continues to claw his way to the top of the charts.”

“Combining a voice that sounds made for classic soul with cutting-edge music, Khalid is a singer/songwriter from El Paso, Texas. Raised by a military family, Khalid lived in Germany and upstate New York before settling in Texas. He was first inspired to make music by his mother, who was a singer and loved ’90s R&B artists such as Brandy and TLC. While still a teenager, he began making music in 2015, incorporating influences as wide-ranging as Frank Ocean, India-Arie, Alt-J, and Father John Misty in the songs he posted online. He eventually connected with the producer SykSense, who, along with Tunji Ige and Smash David, worked on Khalid’s bittersweet breakout single “Location.” Released in mid-2016, the song hit the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs chart the following January. Another single, “Hopeless,” preceded Khalid’s debut album American Teen, which arrived in March 2017.”

“A project known for its heavy beats and being at the forefront of the trap dance genre, Flosstradamus was formed in 2007 by Curt Cameruci (aka Autobot) and Josh Young (aka J2K) as a series of DJ parties in their hometown of Chicago. Word of mouth about their eclectic mashup of electro, house, minimal techno, and sleazy R&B quickly spread, and their parties would often sell out at a moment’s notice. Their monthly party continued to be a heavy draw during the mid- 2000s, with people from all over the nation traveling to Chicago to experience their performances. In 2011 the project became an official recording act with the release of the Jubilation EP on Fool’s Gold. The 2013 EP, Total Recall, was released through the Mad Decent imprint Jeffree’s, and in 2015, they joined the Ultra label with the EP Soundclash. Hdynation Radio followed soon after, featuring appearances by GTA, Lil Jon, Waka Flocka Flame, and others. At the end of 2016, Young parted ways with Cameruci, who continued as a solo act performing under the Flosstradamus moniker. Cameruci issued “Back Again” with Mayhem and Waka Flocka Flame early the next year, following with the Cara Salimando-featuring “How You Gon’ Do That” in the summer of 2017.”

“Canadian producer and DJ A-Trak has traveled all over the world, performing at DJ competitions, clubs, and music festivals in countries including Australia, Japan, South Africa, and Norway, all before the tender age of 18. He was the youngest DJ to ever win a DJ-battling world championship (at 15); the first to win all three major championships — International Turntablist Federation (ITF), Disco Mix Club (DMC), and Vestax World Extravaganza; and the first to win five world championship competitions — again, all before 18. The turntablist wunderkind made himself a pioneer in this subculture of hip-hop within just a few years. As if the tide couldn’t turn more in his favor, Kanye West picked him up to be his personal touring DJ. With featured interviews in hip-hop magazines and on MTV in the mid-2000s, A-Trak began giving this almost lost art form much-needed mainstream exposure.
Born in Montreal, Canada, Alain Macklovitch first attempted to scratch vinyl when he was 13, on his father’s old record player. Soon after, he bought more professional DJ equipment and began teaching himself how to scratch. In 1995, he helped form the Montreal rap group Obscure Disorder with his older brother David Macklovitch, aka Dave One (who also formed the synth pop revivalist duo Chromeo in 2003), and their after-school friends. Dave One and A-Trak established their own label, Audio Research, and they released Obscure Disorder’s first single, “Lyrically Exposed,” through Fat Beats Records in 1997. The record helped reveal Canadian hip-hop to the burgeoning U.S. independent scene. That same year, A-Trak started his now legendary DJ battling career, beginning with his victory at the DMC World Championship in Italy and moving on to capturing the crowns at the ITF, Vestax World, and DMC Team World Championships in 1999 and 2000. Although DJ Q-Bert invited him to be an honorary member of the Invisbl Skratch Piklz after his first world competition, A-Trak had an affinity for DJ Craze, who beat him in the 1998 DMC World Championship. Thus, together they founded their own DJ collective, the Allies, in 1999.
Be In 2000, at the age of 18, A-Trak retired from the battling scene in order to pursue his own musical endeavors and focus more on the Audio Research label with his brother. He did a host of side projects here and there, including working with artists like underground crew Non Phixion and Stones Throw Records label head Peanut Butter Wolf, but he also put out Allies-related records like 2004’s Monkeyboy Breaks, a vital and popular 12″ LP for DJs to use for battling. The turning point in his career came in May 2004 when he was performing in a London record store where Kanye West happened to witness his crafty handiwork. An impressed West pulled him into DJ’ing for his North American tour, which eventually extended into Europe and Asia. Aside from being West’s touring DJ, A-Trak was enlisted to do turntablist cuts on some of West’s G.O.O.D. Music projects, including the highly acclaimed LPs Be (Common) and Late Registration (West). Making big moves for himself, he gathered bits and pieces of video footage from his old battling days and up-and-coming career and composed the autobiographical DVD Sunglasses Is a Must. It was released in March 2006 in anticipation of delivering a solo album in the near future.
A-Trak got back to music the following year, combining Southern rap and dance music on the genre-bending remix album Dirty South Dance, as well as producing tracks for rapper Kid Sister. In 2008, the DJ was commissioned by Nike to bring his production skills to bear on a mix for their Nike+ mixtape series (with previous entries including LCD Soundsystem’s 45:33), releasing the album Running Man to coincide with the company’s Human Race running event that year. The year 2009 would prove to be prodigious for A-Trak, who not only released his own entry in the Fabriclive series, Fabriclive.45, but also teamed up with American producer Armand Van Helden to form the disco house duo Duck Sauce, who found massive worldwide success with their single “Barbra Streisand.” A-Trak also continued to find steady work doing remixes, reworking tracks by artists like MSTRKRFT, Justice, and the Rapture, as well as dropping in to make appearances on albums by Drake and Kid Cudi. Duck Sauce joined the legendary and revived Casablanca label with their 2013 EP Radio Stereo, and in 2014 he joined Dipset rapper Cam’ron for the EP Federal Reserve. The next year, in addition to working with Disclosure and ZHU, A-Trak issued the Push EP — which featured remixes by the Chainsmokers, Cazzette, and others — and the We All Fall Down EP, which featured the title track with Jamie Lidell on vocals. 2016’s featured single/remix collections included his collaboration with Phantogram, “Parallel Lines,” and the Tommy Trash track “Lose My Mind.” Boarding the trap train in 2017, A-Trak recruited Quavo and Lil Yachty for his single, “Believe.”

“New York-based singer/songwriter Ari Leff (aka Lauv) makes yearning, electronic-based, R&B-influenced pop. Interested in music from a young age, the San Francisco-born Leff took piano and viola lessons as a child before picking up the guitar around age 11. During high school, he played in several bands and studied jazz before discovering electronic music production. However, it was while attending NYU as a music tech major in 2014 that a bad break-up found Leff on his own and digging deep into his writing and recording process. Out of this period came the song “The Other,” co-written with songwriter/instrumentalist Michael Matosic. Released under Leff’s stage name Lauv (inspired by the Latvian “lauve” or lion), the song went viral after gaining blog attention and peaked at number three on blog aggregator Hype Machine. In 2015, he returned with his debut EP, Lost in the Light, which featured “The Other.” More tracks followed, including 2015’s “Reforget” and 2016’s “Question,” featuring Travis Mills. In 2017, Lauv headed his own Late Nights, Deep Talks tour and premiered the official video for “The Other,” along with a series of remixes.”

“A singer and songwriter whose unique take on pop, accented with R&B and hip-hop influences, is reinforced by a vocal style that merges the passionate with the stylishly theatrical, Jessie Reyez was born in Toronto, Canada on June 12, 1991. Her birth name is Jessica Reyez, and her family is of Colombian heritage. Reyez learned to play guitar as a child from her father, who had mastered the instrument. Before Reyez became serious about music, she was a committed dance student, and studied hip-hop dance from junior high into high school. However, after a traumatic breakup with her first serious boyfriend when she was 17, Jessie poured her heartache into her music, with her music teacher allowing her to spend most of her school days at the piano. By the time she graduated, Reyez was writing songs that expressed her emotions and she was playing in Toronto clubs and busking on the streets. Jessie’s life took a left turn when her family members were granted visas to live and work in America after years of waiting; she relocated to Miami with her folks, but after landing a job as a bartender, she found the city’s party-friendly atmosphere was sapping her creativity, and when a music video she made began receiving notice online, she left Florida to return to Toronto. After resettling in Canada, Reyez became involved with the Remix Project, an educational program for low-income students that helps young adults learn about music and the arts. Through the Remix Project, Reyez was introduced to Chicago-based hip-hop artist King Louie; he liked her work and asked her to collaborate with him on a song. The track they created together, “Living in the Sky,” generated plentiful buzz after it appeared in 2014, and soon Reyez was being approached to share her songwriting and vocal talents with such notables as Chance the Rapper, Diplo, Skrillex, and R&B legend Babyface. But Reyez was still focused on building an audience for her own work, and in April 2017 she released a seven-song EP, Kiddo.”
