R-Squared, Ricky Rath, is a 23-year-old DJ from Tacoma, Washington recognized for his versatile high energy dance music sets and expansive open-format freestyling. Over the past two years, he has hit stages across Washington with his open-format events and his intricately crafted sets such as co-headlining Lawnstock 2018 and his Legacy set in 2019. Known for incorporating aspects of storytelling, he uses narratives within his mixes to bring them to life. Through the “War on Planet IX.V” project, he rallied to second place in the 2018 USC Events Paradiso DJ Invitational. Along with his music, R-Squared is recognized for his community work with events such as UNDERREPRESENTED: Creating a Platform for DJs of Color and R-Squared & Friends, a benefit show for launching a scholarship for Southeast Asian American creative dreamers. As a Cambodian American, R-Squared hopes to represent his culture and inspires other Asian American kids to pursue their creative dreams and aspiration. As he rapidly grows his support base and pushes the pedal on music production, R-Squared is a name to look forward to in Washington’s dance music scene.
Phillip Nguyen better known by his stage name, Winslo, was born and raised in Bellingham, Washington. At an early age, Nguyen discovered an undeniable fascination and passion towards music by taking up the guitar in elementary school as well as picking up electronic music production in high school. Nguyen noted that it wasn’t until his second year in college that he truly fell for electronic dance music through videos of DJs mesmerizing crowds at festivals he would find through online media sources that sparked a newfound fire within him to pursue something similar thus giving birth to his stage name, Winslo.
Starting out local, Nguyen began playing shows around Bellingham at house shows until his inception with MAYA Concept Co. whose art collective took him on to support his music vision. In time, Nguyen parted ways in order to work more independently and focus more on his own music production. With the support of friends and other musical artists in the scene, he has taken his home town by storm through laying it down at The Wild Buffalo and Studio B as well as releasing his first original song titled “Anything 4 U” last year. Things are looking promising for Winslo whose sounds and sonics cover the nasty filth of heavy bass balanced with the euphoric anthems of futuristic vibes in subdued harmony.

E/J is a 24-year-old producer from Olympia, WA. While not well-known, he has gained a small but devoted following. To date, he has only released one song: an “Umbrella” remix using the acapella from Ember Island’s cover. The track has gained support from R-Squared himself who has played it at every one of his shows since its release. E/J began learning how to produce dance music in 2015 after stumbling upon a video of Zedd playing his song “Spectrum” on the piano. He was inspired and began seeing how he could translate his piano and guitar skills into his productions.
