With eight years as a principle player on the popular sketch show Mad TV, producers made full use of many of Aries Spears’ talents by calling on him frequently to write sketches and create new hilarious characters. Spears also boasted a number of uproarious impersonations on the show that include James Brown, Al Pacino, and his childhood idol Eddie Murphy. The Aries-branded sketch “Talkin’ American” was Mad TV’s most popular bit the minute it hit the airwaves, keeping fans tuned in and boosting the show’s Saturday night ratings impressively. Most recently, Spears starred alongside iconoclastic Damon Wayans in Showtime’s The Underground, a half-hour sketch comedy series that is best described as In Living Color on steroids. His comedy album, I Ain’t Scared, has received numerous accolades and includes stand-up combined with prank calls (way beyond and hipper than the Jerky Boys!).
Arion is well known for his YouTube creations that were back-to-back viral releases from 2010–2011. His most popular Dubstep remix is LMFAO’s “Party Rock.”
Traveling in the uncharted terrains of music, Liquid Stranger’s creative output ranges from suggestive ambient soundscapes to movie scores, pop, dub, infernalia, drill n’ bass, and electronica. Always pushing the sonic boundaries and merging genres, Liquid Stranger consistently creates a soulful blend of unique atmospheres and grooves.
Khadafi Dub has quickly carved his niche on the EDM scene as an all-around performer. After achieving success in hip-hop as Konfidential, Khadafi changed his musical direction and hit the electronic music scene hard, winning the Best Dubstep MC/Host Award in 2011. Being at the forefront of merging Hip Hop with Dubstep and Electro House, Khadafi's stage performance is one of the best live acts on the scene.
