She is an all round modern media phenomenon. Based in St Petersburg, Russia, Waks has been pushing her ideologies in music for a decade. Her various club nights and festivals have become a byword for quality in dance music circles. It all began back in 1999 with her Hip Hop show on Russians biggest dance radio station «Radio Record». Then in 2000 she left to focus her energy towards promoting and creating the now well kown brand «In Beat We Trust».
Recognition came in 2004, when Time Out magazine voted it best club night. After having hosted just about every big Breakbeat DJ in the world, Waks and IBWT went into creating «Breaks Arena». The world’s first Breakbeat Festival. Over 3000 punters per year have seen her and a host of international talent rock the festival for the last years. After this success IBWT went on to invade other festivals.
At the now infamous Black Sea “Kazantip Republic” Waks runs just about everything breakbeat! MAYDAY started to join via an IBWT stage at its Russian events. Waks also tours the world: from Miami to Siberia, from China to Australia, Italy, Spain, New Zealand, Swiss, Germany the 1st Lady of Beats has rocked them all.
Lady Waks has also made a name for herself as a producer. Releasing tracks on well known labels such as Menu Music, West, Bass Planet, RAT Records along with her own venture «InBeatWeTrust music» label. Lady Waks is the true definition of talent and hard work. In 2012 Waks’ weekly radio show on «Radio Record» won the «Best Radio Show» at Breakspoll awards’12.

Naturally gifted with a musical ear, Evan aka Slynk flirted at first with a range of classical instruments including piano, guitar and drums, but it's when He started experimenting with sampling and sound design that the wheels were ultimately set in motions.
From his first gigs in an underground New York inspired café in his hometown of Brisbane, to his first International appearance at Shambhala's Fractal Forest, in 2009, 5 years had gone by 5 years spent refining his skills and experimenting and educating himself and his fans with mash up productions of classic hip hop, ingrained with rare and funky, rhythmically savvy grooves.
With the overwhelming support and love from the world’s most respected funky breaks producers behind him, Slynk's reputation has been growing strong with now numerous releases on several labels under his belt (Jalapeno Records, Goodgroove, and Discocakes just to name a few).
His timeless nufunk electro boogie bravado has met the public with an overwhelming enthusiasm, climbing the charts in more than one occasion as in the case of the robust bass treatment and hippunishing live drum swing He reserved for his rework of Ed Solo & Deekline's "No No No!" that comfortably sat at number one in Juno's best Selling Single Chart.
His fourth appearance at Fractal Forest in 2013 brought his unstoppable Forward Momentum to a new level with a set that not only constitutes his best credentials to day but also consecrated his name to the West Coast Funk Nation.
