22-year-old Nathan Merrill is taking dance music to its next level. Fusing jaw-dropping bass lines and catchy, melodic themes with ferocious trap and hip-hop influences, Eliminate has shown that genre boundaries mean little to him. His debut ‘Gravity’ EP immediately shot to number 1 on Beatport’s hip-hop release charts, while knocking Skrillex out of the number 1 glitch hop release slot. Eliminate’s unique breed of addictive bass music has quickly garnered massive support from the likes of Excision, Datsik, Krewella, 12th Planet, HeRobust, and many more. His reputation as an up and coming producer powerhouse has already begun to precede him, and he won’t stop there.
Porn and Chicken, comprised of Orville Kline, Phives, and Dom Brown, erupted onto the Chicago scene with their infamous Monday night Porn and Chicken parties at EvilOlive, featuring live music, burlesque, smut and a chicken wing buffet! These cutting-edge curators, DJs, and producers gained notoriety for their trendsetting parties, which have been named one of Chicago’s best dance parties by Red Eye, and been featured by Vice Media in their Around The World In 80 Raves. On the vanguard of combining performing arts with club music and crowd interaction, Porn and Chicken is not your average night out, nor your typical DJ set. From fire dancing and metal grinding to live remixes with old skool call and response action from the MC, Porn, and Chicken do it all!
Following the evolution of their weekly throwdown events, the eccentric trio began producing their own distinct brand of bass-heavy productions, mash-ups, and remixes, performing live and gaining support from some of the biggest names on the scene. The Porn and Chicken DJs tour North America and beyond, performing for screaming audiences in places like New York, California, Florida, Texas, Hawaii and Japan, just to name a few. The ambassadors of the Chicago party scene capped this past year with lauded performances at North Coast, Freaky Deaky, and more!
