Born in Tehran, Now just a dolphin making beats in the bay.
Born in Tehran, Iran, Ardalan possesses a peculiar, fresh perspective on music genesis without even trying. His mixes, remixes and dubs are known for their sass, energy and wickedly wry samples that snap like a wet towel to the face, but his original records are where his efforts shine, like those released with Justin Martin —“Mr. Spock,” a 2010 party anthem charted by Diplo and Jesse Rose, “LEZGO,” charted by Dog Blood (Skrillex and Boyz Noise)

Sonya Alvarez is making a name for herself in her hometown of Detroit, MI. Alvarez uses techy house beats spun and cut in a hip-hop fashion to create a melodic, bouncy and exciting story for her audience to engage with. Her sound ranges when appropriate and includes genres like deep house, tech-house, bass-house, break-beats, & techno.

She tests the crowd limits and challenges them to be as physically involved as she is, drawing attention to important builds and drops, and inspires the crowd with a good amount of footwork on her own as well.


Walker & Royce started when Sam and Gavin, having known each other in and out of the dance scene for years, finally began working together in 2011. Crosstown Rebels boss Damian Lazarus noticed one of their very first releases. The result was the Crosstown Rebels EP "You're Not Welcome" and with that, Walker & Royce was launched into the dance music spotlight.

Having solidified their unique sound, you will hear Walker & Royce's music in many of the top DJ's from around the world!
