Mac Miller
In a blossoming hip-hop hotbed of talent, Malcolm "Mac Miller" McCormick is next up out of Pittsburgh, PA. A recent graduate of Taylor Allderdice High School, Mac caught the eyes and ears of Rostrum Records, inking a deal in July 2010. A multitalented musician who can play numerous instruments and a young novice of the freestyle/cipher/battle circuit of his hometown, Mac has been paving his way to superstardom in his blue-collar hometown for years.

Born in 1992, Mac taught himself to play piano, drums, guitar, and bass by the age of 6. Then, after learning to compose songs in a variety of musical genres, he began studying the art of rhyme. Influenced by the styles of artists such as Big L, Lauryn Hill, Outkast, and A Tribe Called Quest, Mac soon developed a reputation for delivering jaw-dropping freestyles in Pittsburgh.

Recording his first songs in the Fall of 2007, Mac went on to form a duo called The Ill Spoken. By 2009, Mac began recording solo records. During this time he released "The Jukebox" and "The High Life" and began to generate a legitimate buzz in the streets and online.

By of July 2010, Mac's buzz became undeniable. With a handful of offers on the table, the young phenom decided to sign with independent powerhouse Rostrum Records. In August 2010, Mac released his Rostrum Records debut "K.I.D.S." and took the internet and music industry by storm.

The Source Magazine says "The sky is the limit for this 19 year old Pittsburgh native," while HipHopDx labeled Mac as "The Steel City's next superstar." Mac was featured on the cover of XXL Magazine's coveted Top Freshman in January 2011. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says "Miller's skillful rhymes, humorous themes and upbeat demeanor are catching the nation by storm." Complex Magazine calls Miller "The Steel City's newest rap posterboy." while URB Magazine calls Mac "a young emcee who is the real thing." Mac's music is also a mainstay on popular hip-hop sites such as Nahright, 2dopeboyz, Rapradar, TheSmokingSection, Allhiphop, and Illroots.

Mac's greatest strength though could be his ability to shine in front of the camera. Soon after signing to Rostrum, Miller was thrust onto several national radio shows for interviews and impromptu freestyles, which have now become Youtube viral video classics. To coincide with his debut Rostrum free albums "K.I.D.S." and "Best Day Ever" Mac continued to team up with hometown filmmaker/videographer Rex Arrow Films. Mac's videos have now surpassed 250 million hits on www.youtube.com/treejtv, including 6 with 15 million plus views a piece. The success of his early street buzz and social media dominance have now transitioned Mac to sold out shows across the world with The Incredibly Dope Tour upstreaming to the internationally sold out Blue Slide Park Tour with almost 200,000 tickets sold in the past year.

The year 2011 also showcased Mac's selling potential as his debut Rostrum EP, "On and On and Beyond," sold over 75,000 copies digitally alone. Mac has also sold over 1.5 million singles total with little to no radio airplay. In November of 2011, Mac continued his surge of success by becoming the first independent artist since 1995 to debut atop the Billboard Charts with "Blue Slide Park." As of January 2012, "Blue Slide Park" had sold almost 250,000 copies. Look for Mac Miller to be the new face of music in 2012 and beyond.

Born and bred in the Bay Area, DJ/Producer Julio Galvez aka "The Whooligan" is a rising tastemaker known for his love and dedication to music. Genres are not barriers for him, any language, culture or philosophy that resonates with the young visionary is fair game for inclusion. This type of diversity and variety has made The Whooligan a trusted source of insight and ground breaking music for parties, brands, labels and communities. The love for music began in his teens, but when he got a chance to work at the famed Amoeba Records, The Whooligan began constantly meeting new people and hearing new sounds. This naturally expanded and deepened his skills as a DJ and soon big homies like J-Boogie of J-Boogie's Dubtronic Science were encouraging him to keep rocking. Throwing his first party before he was legal, The Whooligan started rapidly gaining the respect of his local peers and was eventually getting booked to play alongside people he admired. Soon, news of this precocious talent spread far out and by his early 20's The Whooligan was being tapped by MTV to go on the road for extensive periods of time, opening up for then-new artists like Rick Ross and Lupe Fiasco. That experience forced him to become an adaptable selector, able to gauge an audience quickly and spin virtually all styles of music. Today, The Whooligan is a vital part of the Bay Area's music culture. His undeniable passion for his craft and his relentless work ethic have gained him fans worldwide. The Whooligan's workstation looks different everyday. One day he may be locked in his studio meticulously crafting musical Monet's and genre-defying mixes and the next, spinning classic cuts alongside some of the world's hottest DJ's. He's appeared on Mark Farina's Mushroom Jazz 7 and recorded with artists including Zion-I, The Park, Black Spade, Colossus, Jesse Boykins III and more. In 2009 his creativity and audacity as a DJ landed him one of the top 10 DJ sets at the Winter Music Conference in Miami along with heavy hitters like Rich Medina and Lil' Jon. He's performed at Outside Lands, SXSW, The Fillmore Jazz Festival and supported acts like Jazzanova, Daz-I-Kue, Jazzy Jeff, J. Rocc, Vikter Duplaix and tons more. Established brands like Microsoft, Sony, Island Def Jam and Myspace have sought out his services. The Whooligan is also a founding member of the critically acclaimed electronic soul group 40Love, who just released their"Dreams Don't Sleep"(2012) project and have already garnered attention from NBC, URB, Okayplayer and more. Whether blending two records in a new way or creating an original one of his own, the running thread in all his work is The Whooligan's passion for music and the people he spins it for. Truly a mix of the music, culture and people he's been exposed to, The Whooligan has his ear, and his heart, in the right place.
