DJ Kero is a talented Korean-Californian rapper, producer, and DJ. In 2017, Forbes Magazine wrote a feature piece on Kero’s music, calling it “a grand exercise in mixing modern sensibilities with old-school, funk-inspired sounds.” Kero also has attracted the attention of some of music’s biggest names including co-signs with Will.I.Am, Stevie Wonder, Epik High and Aloe Blacc. His collaboration with Park Kyung of Block B became the #1 song in Korea. It was through this experience as a producer Kero realized his mission; to remain true to his style as an independent artist while producing hits for major label vocalists worldwide. Follow him on Instagram at @keroone.






Currently a solo artist, Hyolyn is the former lead singer of the popular K-pop group Sistar. Her debut with Sistar’s first single “Push Push” in 2016 spawned many hit songs such as “LONELY,” “BLUE MOON,” “Paradise,” “I Like That,” “SHAKE IT,” “I Swear,” “Touch My Body,” “Give It to Me,” “Gone Not Around Any Longer,” “Alone,” “So Cool,” “How Dare You” and “Shady Girl.” Hyolyn has also covered some popular movie soundtracks such as “Crazy of You” from “Master’s Sun,” “Turn Around” from “Little Prince,” “Let It Go” from “Frozen” and “Hello / Goodbye” from “My Love from the Star”. She also has won many Korea awards including the Gaon Chart Music Award, Golden Disc Awards, High One Seoul Music Awards. Follow her on instagram at @xhyolynx.
