Connor Schatzel, better known as LUMBERJVCK, is a musical perfectionist having mastered the guitar, piano, and drums at a young age in Arcadia, CA. To hone his skills as a producer Connor attended Icon Collective music production school in Burbank, CA. His music career progressed, making a cameo appearance in Borgore’s UZA music video as well as winning the EDC Chicago Discovery Project. LUMBERJVCK started making a name for himself through his free, but extremely filthy hybrid trap and dubstep releases on EDM.com. These releases built his initial fan base that led to LUMBERJVCK’s most dedicated followers, the “JVCKSQUAD.” One of his most successful songs to date, “Click Clvck,” made its way around the world on Skrillex’s 2014 Mothership Tour, validating his credibility as a music producer.
The year of 2015 (and early 2016) built the momentum LUMBERJVCK is seeing now having released songs on SMOG, Buygore, Kannibalen, Rottun Recordings, DOOM, Always Never, along with a handful of free tunes. He started 2016 with his most notable release to date, “Name Bran,” a major collaboration with 12th Planet on SMOG Records. It rose quickly through the charts, peaking at #4 on Beatport's Dubstep Top 100. Continuing that momentum, they are set to release a 12th Planet X LUMBERJVCK EP later in the year.
Having toured all over the United States, LUMBERJVCK made his way overseas becoming a successful international headliner. With a tour under his belt in Australia, he is set to expand his international fan base in multiple countries. LUMBERJVCK has played a handful of festivals, but will break his way into the major festival circuit with Insomniac’s Beyond Wonderland in March.
2016 is the year of the LUMBERJVCK.

In its earliest stages, Dr. Ozi was an imaginary friend; the figment of a child’s imagination. Giant, strong and extraordinary, Dr. Ozi could outrun cars and jump over buildings with ease. He was often seen flipping trucks, breaking branches and dangling from electrical wires. Like his creator, Dr. Ozi was unparalleled and unique. And like his creator, Dr. Ozi was never held down by expectations.
Since Dr. Ozi’s inception, Toronto-based Nix Chohan has been breaking molds and infiltrating dance floors with uniquely upbeat but relentless sounds of heavy synths and bass. And with releases on Buygore, Firepower and Uplink Audio Dr. Ozi has enjoyed recognition from bass music greats including Skrillex, Nero, Zomboy, Adventure Club & more.
Innovative in more than just his music production, the powerhouse artist has a great sense for the drama required of a live performance. Dr. Ozi has captivated the audiences of countless lauded nightclubs and international festivals such as WEMF and Medalla Light.
A proud force and trademark of Toronto’s talent, Dr. Ozi will continue to push boundaries and brighten dimly-lit clubs with his flashing, fast paced sound. Without a doubt, Dr. Ozi is on the way to becoming the next big act to come out of Toronto’s underground dance scene.
Known best for his deep and primal percussion, “stabby” basslines, and ever-evolving, razor sharp sound, rising British producer Dean Cawley (aka Stabby) has been making colossal moves during his short time in the limelight. Since commencing his journey through the fibers of electronic music four years ago at the impressively young age of 17, Stabby has employed his lifelong love of rock music alongside a vast array of other genres to concoct a distinct musical style. Boasting a perfect blend of head-bobbing grooves and potent sounds that fuse the most personally inspiring and deeply engaging elements from blues, synth-pop and post-hardcore, Stabby’s music constantly aims to create an entirely unique, jarring and bass heavy experience that is equally visceral and unforgettable.
