Adventure Club first emerged in 2010 and embarked on a wild ride to the upper echelon of electronic music. Along the way, the Canadian duo's breakout hit "Wonder" [feat. Kite String Tangle] from the 2013 debut EP Calling All Heroes amassed over 10.8 million Spotify streams and earned a Gold certification in Canada. Meanwhile, they notched 10 HypeMachine #1's, syncs on MTV's Teen Wolf and Eye Candy, and created high-profile remixes for Brand New, Thrice, Alexisonfire, and Metric as well as collaborating with Krewella on the hit "Rise & Fall." Last year Adventure Club celebrated the release of their debut full-length studio album titled RED // BLUE – which peaked at #2 on both the Billboard Top Electronic Album and iTunes Dance Albums charts upon its release. Stream the full album HERE. Most recently, the pair lent their remixing talents to Kehlani's "Undercover." Look for more exciting things to come from Adventure Club soon.
Bear Grillz' meteoric rise into the Pantheon of bass music legends was predicated on a philosophy of love for the scene and the necessity of always grinding as hard as you can. This philosophy netted him multiple Beatport #1's including his massive collaborations with Datsik and Getter, "Fuck Off" and "EDM" respectively. Earlier this year, Bear Grillz' dropped a 5-track bass-heavy EP titled This Is Your Brain on Dubstep. Stream it HERE.
