William Black is a LA based producer that fell in love with the world of dance music ever since attending his first rave at the age of 16, and joining Icon Collective shortly after. His emotive sounds and signature melodies are inventive, creative, and meaningful. His music falls into the sadboi category as his tracks touch upon themes of depression, addiction, love, and loss. His most viral track with SLANDER ‘Back To You‘ has an astonishing 20 million + streams on Spotify. In 2021, William released his sophomore album Pieces, a 12 piece work featuring stunning production and storytelling prowess which connects intimately with listeners.

JP Orchison, also known as Blanke (the e is silent) has taken his project on a meteoric rise since its inception in 2016. The Australian DJ has amassed millions of streams and gained much recognition in the bass music scene for his diversity in style. Not one to stick to one genre, Blanke came out with one of the best EP’s of 2022, Land of the Wayfarer. The EP is an earful of dubstep, melodic bass, and psytrance that encompass around blissful melodies and explosive basslines. We also can’t forget his “gorgeous” collaboration with ILLENIUM and Bipolar Sunshine ‘Gorgeous‘. He is taking the Phoenix stage at 5pm on Sunday.
INZO, real name Mike Inzano, is a Chicago based electronic music producer/DJ. He is known as a talented multi-instrumentalist – picking up piano at the age of 4 and at 6, he chose to learn drums inspired by rock groups like Red Hot Chili Peppers. Not focusing on any one genre, INZO makes his music to connect with listeners through immaculate vibes and moving melodies. INZO rose to fame swiftly with his breakout single ‘Overthinker‘ which now has over 63 million streams on Spotify. Since then, he’s gone on to work with industry heavyweights like LSDream, CloZee, Liquid Stranger and many more. His live performances will keep you guessing as his experimental sounds keep you captivated on your toes. Catch his performance at the Pheonix Stage Saturday at 3pm.
Since his debut in 2018, the masked and mysterious CloudNone has gone onto transport listeners into a different world with his ethereal soundscapes. His ability to craft uplifting melodies and cloudlike synths has made him one of the most unique producers in the world.

All eyes are on the masked DJ as he elevates listeners to cloud nine with his set at the Phoenix Stage at 1pm Sunday.
Lastly, NURKO is another artist to catch at Ember Shores. The melodic bass staple does it exceptionally well at finding the perfect balance of heavy drops and stringing your heart up with melodies that get you in your feels.
