Arty and Diplo: Two producers from London, Arty and Diplo have been shaping the sound of the UK beat scene for quite some time now. Although they initially started as musical guests to many popular DJs, their sound has since grown into a style of their own.

Disclosure: One of the most successful and popular acts from the last decade, Disclosure has been hard at work for what seems like an eternity. After establishing themselves as producers and performers on their debut album ‘eland’, Disclosure has continued to impress with each new release. One of the most notable songs from their latest album is ‘Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely’, which features both vocals and lyrics. Their massive popularity has also seen them tour America and Europe, and this may well mark the start of their successful career. Expect major singles such as ‘Flux’ and ‘Knights of London’ to appear on the main stage wherever they go.

They first rose to prominence with the release of their first album ‘Afterlife’. Since then they have gone on to sell more than forty studio albums and singles, and gained a reputation as one of the most talented producers in the industry. Their style is characterized by a tightly knotted, jazz-like structure, and many of their singles have used the sounds of keyboards and drum machines to produce a unique sound that many people are attracted to. Their style has not changed greatly throughout the years, but they continue to gain a lot of respect for their never-ending creativity and originality in the electronic music industry.
Rihanna: Another huge name in the electronic dance music scene, Rihanna has been both hailed as a superstar and notorious for her often controversial behavior.
