The underdog mentality that has kept a chip on Bixel Boys’ shoulder might soon be a thing of the past. After playing an array of what can be loosely defined as ‘dance’ tunes at mega festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas (Twice), HARD Summer, Something Wicked and IleSoniq as well as headlining some of the worlds best clubs such as Exchange and Sound (LA), The Mid (Chicago), Webster Hall, Verboten, Slake (NYC), and Grand Central (Miami). They have also done featured mixes for Thump’s MIXED BY, Nina Las Vegas’s Triple J mix, Discobelle, Nest HQ and Power 106’s Powertools. When they touched down for an Australian tour as complete celebrities, they knew it was time to shed the underdog mentality and strive for something bigger.
Witnessed through their diverse releases on labels like Sweat It Out!, Armada, Dim Mak, Main Course, and Nervous, Bixel Boys have dabbled in everything from experimental bass music to bouncy house jams, along with 70’s rock, 90’s hip hop and Berlin techno. With support from A-Trak, Fedde Le Grand, RL Grime, TJR, MakJ, Treasure Fingers, The Crystal Method, What So Not, as well as an iconoclastic mantra, #FREELIFE, as the backbone of their movement, Bixel Boys are not only a force behind the decks and in the studio, but also in the community.
Their #FREELIFE Jersey has been seen on Lil Jon, Skrillex, Martin Garrix, Dillon Francis, TJR, Cashmere Cat, Mat Zo, What So Not, Anna Lunoe, Ookay, Adventure Club, Baauer, MakJ and countless others. #FREELIFE, in essence, is the driving force behind the age-old belief of self expression—living free. Since the official release of the jersey early October 2014, the response has been extraordinary. The high demand for a publicly purchasable version led the Boys to offer it up for sale, where 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Camp Kesem, a charity that throws week long camp sessions for kids whose parents are losing their battle with cancer. Over 1,000 orders were received on the first day.
Whether it is through their tunes, tees or big hearts, you will undoubtedly come across the budding superstars, fashion impresarios, and philanthropists, LA’s Bixel Boys this year.
