DeafMind is the Russian-American collaboration of Portland, Oregon-based,

Producers/DJs, Art Drots and Austin Trafficante. The two have emerged as one of the

fastest growing acts in the Northwest

electronic dance music scene as a result of

their top-tier production and high-energy DJ

sets, which routinely leave crowds both

breathless and ecstatic. Their efforts in the

studio, and on the stage, recently led the

duo to Las Vegas for a performance at

Electric Daisy Carnival 2015 after winning

Insomniac’s Discovery Project.

Since its inception in 2013, DeafMind has opened for industry mainstays such as, Steve

Aoki, Flux Pavilion, Bro Safari, Grandtheft, Brillz, Riff Raff, Wuki, Gladiator, and more.

They have performed at Life In Color Seattle/Tacoma 2014, What The Festival?! 2014,

Foam Wonderland Eugene 2015, and will be playing next at Beyond Wonderland 2015.

The two live and breathe the music they make with the singular goal of creating

electrifying experiences for their audience.

What started as two life-long musicians making beats for fun has transformed

into a full-time occupation with no signs of slowing down. The duo landed on the

Beatport Top 10 in Breakbeat in 2014 and frequently appear on the EDM Network.

With support from Insomniac,

Wuki, Gladiator, UFO!, Stanton

Warriors, Krafty Kuts, and more,

the two continue to prove

themselves as adept producers

and DJs with a relentless passion

for the music they make.
