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.
