After Midnight Entertainment is extremely excited to be bringing you, for their first ever Wisconsin appearance, all the way from London, Stanton Warriors!!!
Stanton Warriors helped revolutionize breakbeats and garage in the late 90s and early 2000s, and still are pumping out cutting edge tunes to this day! It's a true honor for us, a largely broken-beat-focused crew, to be doing a show with these guys (oh yeah, we got both of 'em).
SIDEfx – After Midnight Entertainment, Better Breakbeat Bureau
Delavan, WI – breakbeat, drum n bass
SIDEfx is a side project comprised of Deejay OTTO and FingerPrint.
Deejay OTTO has been slaying the decks for nearly a decade. Starting on hip hop, over the years Otto has also dabbled in dubstep, techno, and house before coming to the conclusion that breakbeats reign supreme.
In 2009, Otto joined UDJSS (United DJs and Sound Systems) and was active in the southern Wisconsin based crew until 2014. After leaving, Otto created his own entertainment crew, After Midnight Entertainment. Since its inception, AME has seen success in its early fall festival, Bass Harvest, and its series of hotel parties based in Delavan, as well as a number of other smaller parties and joint effort festivals with other crews in the region. In summer 2018, Otto was added to the Milwaukee-based crew, Better Breakbeat Bureau.
FingerPrint is a protégé of Otto in AME, and in the four years he's been spinning, he's already gained a dedicated following and a treasure chest of skills. While FingerPrint has a fondness for house, drum and bass, juke, and other darker styles, his true passion remains breakbeats, and in March 2017, he was enlisted in the BBB.
Together the two create an unstoppable force of booty-shaking, head-banging, body-grooving breakbeats! They’ve had the opportunity to co-headline the Mother Ship Stage at Even Furthur 2018, opened for Faust of Urban Assault and Deekline on separate occasions, and played together at Pandemonium 5.
Ginjahvitiz – After Midnight Entertainment, Soul Fuel Recordings, Illuminatus Productions, Milwaukee Noize Collective, Madison Noize Collective, Stealth Noise Unit, Useless Productions
Madison, WI – house, techno, breakbeats, hip hop, and more
Tre Ginjahvitiz is an experienced and versatile DJ, talented well beyond his years. He followed his passion for music into the Madison, WI dance music scene and began DJing in 2011. He quickly established a reputation as a talented youngster, but it was his humble nature and kindness that made promoters eager to book him. His passion for the sounds that created the Midwest scene led him away from much of the music that was popular among his peers at the time, and that respect for House, Techno, and Breaks gained him the attention of veteran promoters and helped turn many young EDM fans on to different genres of electronic music. He has established himself as leader in the Madison and greater Wisconsin scene and has opened for Gene Farris, Paul Johnson, Derrick Carter, Green Velvet, T Mixwell, and Ganja White Night. He has played Winter Warmer and the legendary Drop Bass Network Even Furthur Techno campout/family reunion. Ginjavitiz is a master of styles, and can play sets from that range from House, Techno, Breakbeats, Juke and Footwork, Drum and Bass, Jump up or Hip Hop and can also move between those styles during a set, taking the dance floor on a journey. Ginjavitiz released his first EP in 2018 through Soul Fuel Recordings, titled “Can’t Stop.”
Datcat – After Midnight Entertainment
Milwaukee, WI – house, garage, breakbeats, open format bass music
Datcat started spinning electro house and dubstep in 2010, but with influences from all varieties of electronic music like Daft Punk, Aphex Twin, Infected Mushroom, and Pendulum, and unable to decide on a genre to spin, he settled on, well, all of them. The Cat brings open format to a new level, jumping flawlessly between drum & bass, dubstep, house, breaks, and the heavier bass side of just about any genre. He's had the pleasure of opening for big name acts such as Bad Boy Bill & Caspa.
Groovegadget – After Midnight Entertainment, ToyMaker Music, BassMint Music
Burlington, WI – jackin’ and disco house
Shawn’s been buying records for 17 years and mixing for the last 15. Originally from central Illinois, he’s been all around the Chicago underground electronic music scene. His goal in this is to pass on the love that he’s received from this scene to the generation coming up, so that scene that he loves never dies!
DJ Rhapsodic – After Midnight Entertainment, ToyMaker Music, HouseBroken Events
Chicago, IL – tech-house, techno
Born in the heart of the midwest (Iowa), Rhapsodic started his journey in music in 1992 in the early midwest scene. Traveling the midwest (Chicago, Milwaukee, Madison, Minneapolis, Detroit), Rhapsodic gained his knowledge of dance music by literally sitting on speakers, in the front of dusty warehouse raves all over the midwest. Keeping a keen eye on that nights feature DJs, Rhapsodic gathered an eclectic love of various styles that influenced his style today. Techno, House, Minimal, Acid, Tribal and anything in between that shakes you to your core. He also hosts a weekly Facebook live stream, Thirsty Thursdays.
The Juarez Brothers – After Midnight Entertainment, Milwaukee Noize Collective
Milwaukee/Appleton, WI – techno
It all began in a cold dark alley in Juarez, Mexico… Two brothers were kidnapped by an evil cartel and separated at birth and sold to different families. Through the years unbeknownst to them they only lived 45mins from each other. And on one fateful evening TECHNO brought them back together. After long talks and DNA research they found that they were brothers and decided to come together and play some of the best Techno around. E-rock and DJR combine forces to become… THE JUAREZ BROTHERS.
