Formed in 2009, Manufactured Superstars has established itself as one of the most electrifying acts in dance music today. Comprised of Bradley Roulier and Shawn Sabo, the duo is known for their signature NASA spacesuit costumes, high-octane house productions and uptempo, genre-bending sets that undulate spontaneously, often times doling out upwards of 100 tracks in the span of a two-hour performance.
The year of their inception, Manufactured Superstars had their first break remixing grammy award wining artist Bruno Mars' “Just the Way You Are.” After the remix’s success, the duo was tapped to rework the likes of electronic heavyweights including David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Tiesto, Afrojack, Kaskade, Steve Aoki and pop superstars such as Katy Perry, Pitbull, Chris Brown and Flo-rida, to name a few.
The tandem had their first breakout hit in 2011, as “Take Me Over ft. Scarlett Quinn” ranked a top 3 single for the year on both SiriusXM Radio and BPM-TV. That same year also saw the Las Vegas dance music explosion with Manufactured Superstars leading the charge as the first-ever resident DJs signed to the Wynn at XS Nightclub. Years later Manufactured Superstars still play 15+ stadium-smashing shows there per year, along with their residencies at Beta Nightclub in Denver and Omnia in San Diego.
The globe-trotting pair has showcased their bombastic beats the world over with performances at festivals like Ultra Music Festival and Electric Daisy Carnival, international dance hotbeds such as Indonesia, Singapore and Mexico, special events including SXSW, Sundance and the Superbowl, and even unique locations as far-flung as the Kennedy Center in Washington DC and launch of Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic spaceport in New Mexico.
From the road to the studio, Roulier and Sabo keep a breakneck schedule with their music. Last year, they released a mix compilation for the Gansevoort Hotel group, multiple singles including a collaboration with Alex Gaudino called "Lights Out” and numerous party-starting remixes. Their Magnetic EP ranked #1 on iTunes’ Dance chart for two weeks, and their single “Like Satellites” topped Billboard’s Dance chart for 20+ weeks.
Between touring and producing, Manufactured Superstars host a monthly radio show on XM radio’s premier dance station BPM Friday nights at 11:00 P.M. EST. Outside of their music-making career, the masterminds behind Manufactured Superstars are shrewd businessmen. Bradley Roulier and Shawn Sabo were integral in founding online music distribution network Beatport back in 2004 as an alternative to iTunes that specialized in electronic music and culture, and in 2013 sold their shares to SFX. Bradley is also the owner of Denver’s Beta Nightclub which was named the #1 club in America by Rolling Stone in 2013.
With the release of Party All The Time, the first full length album from the team, 2015 promises to be Manufactured Superstars’ best year yet. Full world tour in support of the album to follow.
