Formed in 2008 with James “JPatt” Patterson and Ben “DJ B-Roc” Ruttner, the boys create carefree dance music that draws from soul, funk, disco, rap, and pop. Releasing their first single in “Dancing with the DJ”, they continued to knock out remixes that gained them the spotlight. They’ve shared the stage with acts like Big Boi, Chromeo, and Ellie Goulding. 2016 has been pretty high rolling for them as well as they were praised as “15 Best Things We Saw During NYC Fest Weekend” by Rolling Stone and “Best of Bonnaroo 2016” by Billboard.
Get ready planet Earth, The Sponges are back from Funktopia and they brought the party. Formed from the collective minds of Ryan Slepin and Nik Eaton, The Sponges guarantee to have girls and guys alike groovin’ on the dancefloor. The South Florida based production duo began as great friends connecting through their passion for music, and teamed up to deliver psychedelic dance music across the nation. The Sponges signature sound fuses 70’s funk, heavy bass, and nostalgic sample chops with a classic four on the floor rhythm. Support and praise quickly arose from several renowned artists in the house music scene such as Ardalan, Taiki Nulight, Back2Black, Movenchy, Haechi, Sonny Banks, and Aylen. The Sponges will be releasing their first official track, “Make It Juicy!” on Box Of Cats, a label founded by the dominant collective of Wongo, JeffDoubleu, Jak Z, Kyle Watson, Tom EQ and Marc Spence.
