Top Billin

Fifteen thousand screaming fans, speakers banging loud as thunder, fireworks and pyrotechnics flying in the air like it’s new year’s eve. Four dudes in tight leather pants, stroking power chords from stratocasters and blasting double bass drums… Oh wait, that was Van Halen at the San Diego Sports Arena in 1981. Never mind that… But Top Billin are equally hot. In fact – the DJ collective consisting of guys named Sir Nenis, Fiskars, Flipperi, Anonymous & J-Laini, Top Billin is the closest thing to club phenomenon ever to come from Finland.

A Plus D

He's a rock singer-turned-DJ who fronts the world's only mashup band. She's a party girl-turned-DJ who helped create the biggest mashup club in the world. Together, they're "rebel DJs" Adrian & the Mysterious D. Known mostly as the couple who helped bring mashup culture to America, the duo have forged a reputation as crowd-pleasing selectors who not only shamelessly bridge the gap between genres, but between the alternative and the mainstream. This is best evidenced by the success of their club Bootie, the first mashup bootleg party in the United States.
