Downlink
If you’ve seen Downlink before, you know what you’re in for.  A non-stop bass infused performance that isn’t for the faint of heart.  Downlink has collabed with Excision, Datsik, Messinian and other top bass music stars.  I’ve had the pleasure of experiencing Downlink’s bass power before and if you’re experiencing it for the first time, prepare yourself!

Borgore
What can I say about Borgore that hasn’t been said in the past.  The man is known for his raunchy lyrics and his heavy distorted sounds.  The Israielian producer used to be in a death metal band and has no turned into one of dubstep’s poster childs.  Borgore just released his latest track, “Smell Your D*ick” and has a new EP on the way.  Prepare to hear all these new tunes at SkyLab!

Andy C
A legend in bass music, and specifically in drum and bass; Andy C is going to be a must see at Skylab.  The drum and bass pioneer has won numerous awards for his remixes in the past along with countless other releases.  My personal favorite is the recent remix of the Major Lazer tune, “Get Free”.   Check it out HERE!

Zedd
Zedd has just come off his recently highly success release of his Spectrum EP, and there are no signs of stopping the German producer.  With Skrillex’s label, OWSLA, behind his back you can be sure that Zedd is on top of his game and ready for action.  After seeing Zedd at Red Rocks this past summer, I can tell you that he mixes in all genres and has a great time doing it.  Zedd is going to be another performance at SkyLab that will take breaths away!

Gareth Emery
I’ve known in the past that Skylab is usually geared towards a trance crowd, well, I can’t exactly say that I’m up-to-date on all things trance, but I do know that Gareth Emery is at the top of the bill for a reason!  The English producer has been making beats since before you were probably born.  Gareth’s blend of mixing progressive house, trance and classic house is one reason why he was ranked #7 in DJ Mag’s annual Top 100 poll in 2010!

Porter Robinson
The star of the night and another OWSLA producer, Porter Robinson will be headlining the night at the mere age of 20.  I’m not sure I know too many other producers that have accomplished everything Porter has done before hitting his 20’s.  Porter recently announced on Facebook that he took some time off of shows to work on his new material.  He didn’t specify whether that would be an EP or album, but we do know that it will be an impressive body of work.  If you’ve had the chance to catch Porter before, you know that he give “electro” a new meaning.  His tracks are produced and mastered to a tee, and his energy on stage is what brings people back for more!  Don’t miss Porter slay SkyLab this year!
