Lost Paradise

Headliners

Jackal

Mikey Pennington’s roots in drum & bass, UK garage and grime are intricately layered throughout his productions. Jackal’s down-tempo style of trap boasts one of the heaviest vibes in the game. The London native released an array of genre-blending mixes that have resonated with listeners on a global scale.

His career erupted in 2013 with the success of “Shakedown”, followed by numerous hits since including “Chinchilla”, “Jamba” (OWSLA), “Animal Style“ (Mad Decent), and “Netflix N Kill” (Buygore). His barrage of hits has led to performances at major festivals around the world including EDC Las Vegas, EDC Orlando, Digital Dreams and Storm Shanghai. Keep your eyes and ears on Jackal’s career as he continues to skyrocket in 2017.

WUKI

Wuki is the genre-blending solo project of Denver-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.

Lazy Rich

Unlike his name, Lazy Rich is an industrious and untiring studio junkie, a full time touring DJ, and a computer savvy brainiac. In addition to being one of the most respected electronic music producers of the past few years, Rich runs a highly respected indie label "Big Fish Recordings" (nurturing such talent as Zedd and Porter Robinson early in their career).

Rich's remix and collaboration credits include Lady Gaga, Avicii, Fatboy Slim, Deadmau5, Chris Lake, Steve Aoli, Morgan Page, Zedd, Porter Robinson, John Dahlback, X-Press-2 and the list goes on. The list of supporters for his music is pretty much every top name in the industry.

His style, ranging from funky and groovy, all the way to intense and at times audaciously epic house music, has put countless big records in his musical arsenal and paved the way for him to create his own signature style in a market. The past year saw Rich attracting remix requests from electronic music as well as pop music icons. Television ads and Hollywood films can now be added to that list.

Rich's ability to read the crowd and respond with precision sets him apart as a DJs' "DJ" rather than the onslaught of the cliché digital DJ generation. The future looks incredibly bright for this rapidly rising star, who is anything but Lazy.

Willy Joy

Don't try to classify partymaster Willy Joy as anything but that - a party. He and his productions have been packing sweaty dancefloors across the country from major festivals to sweaty underground raves. His songs have been remixed by some of today's top producers such as Dillon Francis & Flosstradamus while tearing up clubs across the country. Willy's tunes get played by the likes of Diplo, Adventure Club, Brillz & BBC Radio 1. Willy represents the eclectic new breed of bass music, rapidly changing styles and tempos with ease while always maintaining a frenzied, hands-in-the-air dancefloor.

While creating official remixes for Major Lazer, Flosstradamus, A-Trak and original releases on Fools Gold and Firepower Records, Willy also co-produced "Mash Up The Dance" with Major Lazer for their album "Free The Universe". He collaborated with Brillz for the standout track "WTF" on the TWONK EP, and many more collaborations are in the works. He is currently prepping a slew of new music for release later this year. 

With constant touring throughout North America and beyond, Willy is set to blow up fast. Come see him live and you'll instantly know why. Willy is known for blending disparate sounds into a single, ecstatic, live moment.
