GG Magree

Girl boss and all-round BAE is how the majority of the world refer to Australian DJ/producer and vocalist GG MAGREE.

When GG gets behind the decks be prepared for a 10/10 booty popping performance, the chance of a surprise celebrity shows crasher and one hell of a show.


The name Amtrac has become synonymous with many titles – producer, DJ, multi-instrumentalist & sometimes vocalist – yet if there’s one defining ethos behind Caleb Cornett’s burgeoning Amtrac project, it’s a relentless commitment to authenticity. 


Wuki is the genre-blending solo project of Los Angeles-based producer Kris Barman. Influenced by the sounds of Detroit ghettotech and Chicago footwork scenes, Barman’s ability to seamlessly mix booty, breaks, electro, and house into hard-hitting club-shakers has become a trademark of the Wuki sound. The Mile High City resident has earned releases and remixes for notable imprints such as OWSLA, Main Course, Fool’s Gold, and Ultra – not to mention support from the likes of Knife Party, Skrillex, and Rolling Stone Magazine.
