When this pair of Milwaukee dubstep DJs met at age 14, they immediately became best friends and shortly after began their journey of making music together.

"Steve and I started a project called Kthxbye! when we were 16," Deaf Starr DJ James Suchorski said. "It was electro-dance type music that was inspired by people like Unicorn Kid, Owl City, Eiffel 65, etc. It ended quickly but we continued to write songs and give each other input and support."

Deaf Starr, as it is known now, began when Suchorski and his friend Alex Burlingame decided to start a project.

The band, named after the Death Star from Star Wars, didn't stay the same for long.

Burlingame decided not to continue, which gave Suchorski the chance to work yet again with his best friend Steve Pitzl.

"It was a chance to try something totally new with full creative control over what I was writing," Pitzl said. "A chance to do something musically with my best friend. He set himself on being a DJ or producer."

They began DJing together as Deaf Starr in 2010 under the names DYMONDZ (Pitzl) and CR33PER (Suchorski).

"We began DJing parties every weekend around the east side of Milwaukee, Muskego, Bay View and Delafield," Suchorski said.

The two feed off the energy of party crowds.

"I love the party atmosphere," Pitzl said. "Just getting everyone hyped. Everyone having a good time and then talking like ‘Damn, last night was f*cking insane!'"

"We both just love playing for people, seeing people party and have a good time, as well as enjoying our original music," Suchorski said. "It's what I want to do in life."

Pitzl's main musical project, the pop band Mechanical Kids, leaves the two DJs unsure as to the future of Deaf Starr.

Suchorski hopes to get signed, put out his music and make songs for rappers and singers.

"If we got signed as Deaf Starr, that would be cool," Suchorski said. "But with Steve in Mechanical Kids, I see myself being signed separately, still working with him."

He hopes that one day Deaf Starr will become a label type project where people can upload their music to be promoted.

"I would be happy with either outcome," Suchorski said.

For now DYMONDZ and CR33PER are focusing on keeping the party going and getting the crowd dancing.

"When they come out to a show, I want people to have a great time, get totally trashed and laid all while dancing and appreciating the music," Pitzl said."My goal for the whole thing is to make music people can appreciate. I especially want that for James. And to play in front of a crowd that I can't see the end of and have everyone like it."

Deaf Starr can be found performing at college parties, rock/metal shows between bands and every Friday night at Lucky's Irish Pub and Grill on 7th and Layton in Milwaukee.

Over the past few years, many new electonic artists have emerged from cities all over the world. After picking up a guitar at age 12 and learning the basics in an undersized Milwaukee music store, he soon developed a love for producing music. Dymondz, now 19, has become a prominent name in the Midwest electronic music scene

" I've always been into electronic music. The first CD I ever received wa...s Eiffel 65s Europop and it grew from there," he raves. With major influences like Lucky Date, Eiffel 65, Steve Aoki, and Paul Van Dyke, Dymondz placed #19 in the nation on Indabas Identity Music Festival's contest.

"I love the fact that im not bound to a certain set of rules or restrictions when it comes to EDM. There's such a broad horizon and endless possibilities. I love the feeling you get when you create something fresh," he explains. Whether it's playing parties and clubs all over the Midwest, or opening at The Rave in Milwaukee for national touring such as , crowds of ten or crowds of a thousand, Dymondz is able to focus directly on his music to construct the best tracks possible.
