Whether it’s bumping the speakers all along the East Coast from New York to Florida, running a production company, or providing premium sound for festivals like Big Dub, Dj a.M.p. usually has his hands on it; continually raising the standard in EDM arena.

a.M.p. began to dj in 2002. Starting with house he quickly expanded his skills and was soon also playing breaks, electro, and drum and bass. He has been given the opportunity to open for such headliners as Bad Boy Bill, Richard Vission, Aphrodite, Jason Jinx and Crazibiza to name a few.

RaveKilla

Whether you’re catching a set from Ramiro or RaveKilla, whether it be Progressive, or Liquid DNB, or Breaks or Tech House…one thing remains the same, you will be taken on an aural journey that will leave you wanting more. For Ramiro, it began long ago with early 90’s ‘Techno’. A passion sprang forth and he dedicated himself completely to this newfound love. In ’99 Ramiro took to the decks to further hone his passion for EDM. Soon after, he was an integral factor in the startup of ‘Give’ a local EDM crew dedicated to providing quality music for free to the masses. This goal was accomplished by starting what has become the longest running EDM weekly the DC area has ever known Transit, to which he has remained a main driving force during its 11 year reign. Ramiro’s visibility in the scene and skills behind the decks have landed him in some legendary venues playing alongside legendary artists. He has since become a member of District Burners and has fully embraced the ‘burner’ lifestyle. More recently his exploits have landed him a spot on One Love Massives roster and is now a part of Set Artists based in Cali. His experience coupled with his innate ability to know what the people want will leave dancers and dance floors glistening with sweat.

SaintLike
saintlike
Born on July 25, 1978 in Cooperstown, NY, Michael Moxham was musically inclined for the very beginning. As a small child, he would spend hours in front of his parents’ 8 track or turntables, fiddling with the dials on the car radio, or enjoying his favorite toy, the Fisher Price record player. As time passed this passion only grew, and while the equipment evolved, the essence remained the same.

By 17, Saint Michael was known as one of the DC area’s premier up and coming junglists and played weekly at events up and down the East Coast. He soon became interested in scratching/turntablism and SaintMic/ST/MiC was born, blessing the microphone with lyricism, while still remaining firmly ensconced in production and work behind the wheels of steel.

By the mid 2000’s, ST/MiC had a number of regular gigs both on the tables and the mic in the DMV area, including a weekly in Fredericksburg, as well as frequent spots at Jessie Tittsworth’s now legendary Krunk events. From ’04-’06, there were frequent collaborations, production for other artists, and the release of several EPs, including those of friends Jazz Addixx. 2009 and 10 would prove equally busy with releases on DigiCrates Records, Japan’s Libyus Music (alongside artists like Nujabes and Fat Jon), and production and engineering credits including C Rayz, Walz, Moka Only, Muneshine, Has-Lo and many other well known artists in the indie hip hop scene.

In 2011, Mike’s musical explorations took him down yet another new avenue. Having just finished hosting a 52 episode underground hip hop and beat phantasmagoria radio show series , Scrunch Face, Mike adopted a new moniker, SaintLike, to match the new direction. With his very first dubstep remix winning a remix contest for French producer LaTourette and landing on an EP on Beatport in early 2012, the rest of the year would bring more sonic noodlings into the deeper side of bass.

As part of the One Love Massive collective, SaintLike continues to bring his genre-defying, “let’s push things forward” sounds to the aurally-inclined. His prolific release schedule continues to bless the mic and pay homage to subwoofer science.
