QUIVVER (AKA JOHN GRAHAM)
John Graham aka Quivver started his production career in the early 1990s, and has been a household name within the electronic music scene ever since. That’s right, over 25 years in the industry and still going strong. He is best known as Quivver, but has invented a host of other monikers, including Space Manoeuvres, Stoneproof, Skanna and Tilt, each representing a different shade of his eclectic production sound and each giving an idea of his true versatility. He’s really done it all, his DJ CV is as impressive as anyone out there, he’s laid vocals down with acts like Hybrid, Planet Funk and Darren Emerson and has had his productions signed to all of the big labels. John was also one of the first in electronic music to explore the film, television and gaming worlds working on CSI: NY, composing for “The Taking of Pelham 123,” while also producing the music for video game trailers including “Transformers”, “Call of Duty” and “Batman: Arkham City Riddler.” He is a true legend of the electronic music world.

Darin Epsilon is testament with unbridled talent, hard work, passion, pure dedication to his art you can succeed in this fickle industry. Inspired by the icons from the late 90’s, acts like Leftfield, Paul Oakenfold, Sasha & Digweed Darin put in work. Starting out in a record store and running a college radio station he launched his record label Perspectives Digital in 2010.
