Inception Music Festival Artist Spotlight | Lil Jon

Posted by Brittany Irwin on Mar 26, 2015 1:00:00 PM

Jonathan Smith, more commonly known as Lil Jon, is an American Rapper, Producer, and DJ from Atlanta, GA.  He has been a force in all aspects of the music world, being a pioneer in the style of hip-hop called “crunk”, and has even dabbled in the entertainment industry making appearances in television shows and movies. 

I am sure most of you remember the tragic days of middle school and the denim skirt with leggings and Uggs outfit than ran rampant at the middle school dances; but when you hear the song “Yeah!” by Usher, what comes to mind?  You would be lying if you didn’t say middle school dances.  Lil Jon, in collaboration with Usher, was the producer of the hit single and received a Grammy Award for the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration in 2005. 

Over the next decade, Lil Jon worked with various artists, such as The Ying Yang Twins, Youngbloodz, David Guetta, Usher, Ludacris, Pitbull, and many more, to produce hit singles and released his own rock music album, Crunk Rock.

In 2014, Lil Jon collaborated with DJ Snake to release “Turn Down for What” which was a huge hit on Spring Break last year!  The single peaked at number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has since been gone on to be certified 3x Platinum by the RIAA.

Inception Music Festival Artist Spotlight | GTA

Posted by Brittany Irwin on Mar 18, 2015 6:00:00 PM

GTA is a Miami based production duo made up of the tandem Matthew Van Toth (Van Toth) and Julio Mejia (JWLS).  The two met on social networking sites Soundcloud and Facebook, and have been working together ever since.  Although they are a relatively new group in the Electronic Dance Music scene, the duo has received recognition from and talked to well-known Electronic artists such as Afrojak, Diplo, and Laidback Luke about potential future collaborations.  Their first track, “It’s Time”, was released through Afrojak’s label, Wall Recordings. 

The duo’s production genre is typically classified as House music, but is influenced by other genres like Hip Hop, Salsa, and more.  The reason for the diversity in their music stems from the diversity in both Van Toth’s and JWLS’ individual sounds.   Before coming together, the two were producing their own music – Van Toth with a more Techy-House sound and JWLS’ sound being strongly influenced by Hip Hop.  Essentially, GTA does not feel the need to stick to one genre.  Their goal is to get everyone on their feet dancing and to play whatever they think is cool at the time.
