A trap and electro producer signed to Mad Decent, Brillz originally worked behind the scenes, playing in various bands while working with acts like Jeffree Star and AJ McLean. Born Sami Diament, the Los Angeles-based producer launched the electro act Ultraviolet Sound in 2008 while also working on Jeffree Star’s breakthrough EP Cupcakes Taste Like Violence. Work with AJ McLean and more Ultraviolet Sound releases followed, then in 2012 he joined ETC!ETC! and Diplo on the Bueller EP, released by the Mad Decent imprint Jeffree’s. His Twonk album was released in 2013 on Slow Roast while the remix version, Retwonked, landed before the end of the year. Festival DJ sets, including gigs at Lollapalooza and Electric Zoo, plus remix work for Katy Perry and Zedd brought Brillz to 2015, when he signed with Mad Decent. That same year the label released his Geekin EP, which featured a guest appearance from veteran rapper Gangsta Boo.
