Rivals in brand new to the local scene here in Edmonton, but after his first show tearing it up at the Pants Off Dance Off, he's sure to be up to some big things in the near future. His Valerie esque melodic tunes are setting him well apart from all the local "banger" producers here and his different approach to a more live performance will definitely start turning some heads.
Show some love to your local Rivals! You can peep his Myspace Here to stay updated on his next shows and expect to be seeing this guy hitting the club scene in the near future.
Here's a few of his tune hot of the presses for your listening pleasure!
Favourite Night Ft. Summer Project
There Will Be Time
The Sharps is on fire right now! Native to Edmonton AB but soon to be residing in Vancouver BC. This man is blowing up the west coast with a fresh take on all things bass. He has had a huge amount of support from some of the industries best. From Drop The Lime and Rob G, to Phat Conductor and Bassnectar his tunes are being rinsed world wide. One of his strongest singles to date Girl Sweat was picked up for rerelease on Robb G's promo records. No telling what this man is going to drop next but one thing is certain it'll be bad ass!!!!

Some of my absolute favorite dudes in this game are my hommies from NADASTROM . These guys are truly salt of the earth! However aside from being great people they are also on some serious shit music wise.
heres the offical bio incase you didnt know...
Dave Nada consistently proves to be one of the most electrifying and effective DJ’s around. Nada joins an impressive roster including everyone from the Crookers and MSTRKRFT to Richie Hawtin and Tiesto. He is a longstanding resident at Taxlo, voted “best party in America” by Blender Magazine. Previous DJ tours include world tours with DJ Craze (Kanye West's official DJ), regular cross-continental dates with Tittsworth, invites to Australia, festival gigs in Puerto Rico and more. Even in a time of declining record sales, Dave Nada’s regular releases on T&A (label of Tittsworth & DJ Ayres, of The Rub) rapidly sell out. Grammy-nominated engineer Matt Nordstrom is responsible for production of the highest caliber. His studio work includes longstanding efforts with Grammy Award-winning, internationally chart-topping, Global Underground artists. Widely regarded as a leading cutting edge label of its scene, Nic Fanciulli’s Saved imprint offered Nordstrom a multiple record deal, where he would join Pete Tong and a long list of trend setters. Having held numerous residencies in the DC area, he is also synonymous with razor tight mixing and impeccable selection. The two join forces as NADASTROM, forming the pinnacle of production and DJ’ing. Switch (XLR8R’s artist of the year and Grammy Award-nominated producer for M.I.A.) quickly invited the duo to join the legendary imprint Dubsided for a stream of record releases. Their debut EP topped numerous international charts, particularly Buzz/DMC Magazine and Beatport, reaching the number one top download spot. Nadastrom tracks are trainspotted by countless A-list DJ’s and artists (Diplo, Drop The Lime, A-trak, Will.I.Am., Kanye West, Annie Mac, Laidback Luke, etc.) and their collaborative efforts include work with Nina Sky, Pitbull, Stretch Armstrong, Kid Sister, Tittsworth, Blaqstarr and more. Uncompromising quality in the studio and on the decks, Nadastrom is without a doubt “the future” of music, as Scottie B once appropriately remarked.
