Just Gone 6: Vigilante Dance Brothers
JUST GONE 6 compare themselves to the vigilante brothers of BoonDock Saints, who set out to rid their home city of crime and evil. However, Just Gone 6 are not crime fighters. They are two singer/songwriters who have been making music together since first meeting in their middle school cafeteria. The duo, Grant Cook and Mike Miller, write most of their dance influenced songs on a 140 year old piano, and perform both as a band and DJ act. Over the years, their sound has evolved to reflect both introspection and anthemic pop elements, and they have taken the stage at legendary venues such as The Viper Room in Los Angeles, and The Bitter End in New York.
Marcie speaks with Just Gone 6 right before the August 9th release of their debut single and video. Just Gone 6 will be taking their live show and DJ set on the road nationwide. Catch them live in August at WKTU’s Beatstock, The DJ Expo, and at Mega Jam.

Dëhasse is regularly being aired on the UK’s Kiss FM, and North America’s Sirius Satellite Radio, and is now on a whirlwind tour of over ten countries. His North American tour kicked off this weekend at Denver Red Rocks “Global Dance Festival’ in Colorado, where he shared the festival stages with the likes of Benny Benassi, Gareth Emery and Avicii.

Stereojax: Debut EP ‘Innocent’

Stereojax’s debut EP release, “Innocent” is mixed by Claudius Mittendorfer, (Franz Ferdinand, Interpol, Muse). “Innocent” appears on the soundtrack for Test Drive Unlimited 2, alongside tracks by Fischerspooner, and Deadmau5.
