THE TOXIC AVENGER (IHEART COMIX/France)
While France continues to expand as the dominating powerhouse for electro-dance music, the growing independent dance scene keeps churning out all-night-long party DJs with The Toxic Avenger quickly rising as the premiere Frenchman taking the dance floor to a new level.
Born Simon DeLacroix, the man behind the comic book and B-movie-inspired persona, The Toxic Avenger is notorious for his infectiously catchy, self-produced dance-a-thon tunes, but is equally recognized for his perfected remixes.
Signed to IHEARTCOMIX Records, in 2007, The Toxic Avenger was named by Rolling Stone as “One of the 5 most influential electronic artists of the year” alongside Justice, LCD Soundsystem, Digitalism and Simian Mobile Disco. The same year, he was a finalist in Diesel’s U:Music Awards.
AUTOEROTIQUE (Dim Mak/Canada)
Autoerotique stores electro, techno, house, Dutch house, Dutch-colonial house, rave, rock, rave-rock, indie-rock and even ska on speed dial and calls them up frequently. Their effortlessly protean, shape-shifting sound can careen wildly from project to project, so it’s not unexpected to hear them transform from Dutch house to, say, Norwegian black metal on the same record – thus, earning them the lazily au courant nick name “Autobots”.
Signing with Dim Mak Records, the Canadian duo of Keith Robertson & David “Dave” Henderson streaked like a tracer bullet through the strobe-lit sky of the international dance community with their official first single Gladiator featuring remixes by Aoki/AM, Klever, Larry Tee/Alexander Technique, The Faint, AC Slater & Milano.
Following the Gladiator EP, Autoerotique showed off the many colourful arrows in their musical quiver releasing remixes for Lykke Li, Shinichi Osawa, Chris Cornell & Timbaland, Diplo & Laidback Luke, Larry Tee, B. Rich, Disco Bisquits, Fischerspooner and Weezer.

Girls n Boomboxes is a San Francisco based electro rock, electro house duo. Jason Kiser is an american sound engineer who started his career mixing and mashing hip hop. Harald Boyesen is a Swedish producer who started writing and recording music at age 16. Together, they create music for the dance floor with their one official release “Pink Astronaut”.
