>> MING (NYC)

[Hood Famous Music / Ming's Music / Circle Talent ]
Armed with a newfound sense of liberation, over two decades’ worth of production know-how and tools, and inspiration from dance music’s bevy of new champions, MING is looking toward the musical future he always dreamed of. “It’s exciting to hear this new sonic thing that’s happening, similar to what we had when we were mixing genres in the old days. But now it’s crossing over not just to dance kids, but to metal heads and rock people,” he says. “It’s exciting to see 18-years-olds stagediving at dance shows. I’m inspired by the people who have done something with this genre that was considered dead. We’ve gone past the ‘everybody’s a DJ’ phase: Now people are good producers and good DJs.” But the sweetest part of all for this musician-by-blood is just being back in the mix. “I’ve got something to say – again,” says MING. “I felt like it had been said and done. Now I have my voice back.”

 
>> JUMPSHOT (NYC)

[Hood Famous Music / Lethal Talent]
New York City's own bass-slinger, Joe Constantino, better known as Jumpshot, is a force to be reckoned with on the EDM / dance circuit. Stylizing his dark sound with signature hip-hop samples and classic breaks, each record pushes its genre to a new level as Jumpshot continues to make waves throughout the industry. Working vigorously for several years, Jumpshot eventually broke into the realm of professional music in 2001 and soon found himself in the studio alongside major leaguers such as Rev Run (Run DMC), Busta Rhymes, Joe Budden, Lil' Mo, Fabolous, Paul Caine, Fat Man Scoop, Prodigy, Christina Milian, and others. After taking a few years off from making "anything musical", Jumpshot came back with a vengeance in 2010, this time storming the dance music scene. A long-time fan of jungle and drum & bass, he was introduced to dubstep by a friend and became very interested, very quickly. He released "The Raw Uncut" on Synth City Records in 2011 – a two-track release like no other at the time that quickly found itself at the top of the charts. He followed up with a huge release on Play Me Records later that year and several releases since then, and continues to pave the way with his unique style & sound.

Jumpshot is currently running alongside MING at Hood Famous Music in NYC. With several projects working in addition to his solo career, there is a lot to come from Jumpshot and the Hood Famous crew, including a genre-defining, downtempo venture entitled "Abstract The Ism", where Jumpshot & MING bring their most refined assets to light.

>> INFERNAL DEVICES (NYC)

[SpinSpinNYC]
Infernal Devices met online over a shared love for electronic dance music and their desire to create a visceral, interactive live experience for their musical creations. After a long discussion one night about the joys of 80's sci-fi and dance music, Andy Miccolis and Mark Allen agreed that their project would be a unique visual take on electropop. With this in mind, they holed up in their studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, writing, recording and constructing a live show to bring retro-futurism to the post-disco dancefloor, combining floor-pounding beats with melodic hooks.
