2012 started off with a bang, as 5 & A Dime headlined a NYC New Years Eve event in the prestigious Angel Orensanz Building rocking out a sell out crowd of over 700 people! Only a few days later did 5 & Dimes collab with Basic Physics reach #2 on Hype Machine with their single “Filth in Paris”. As 2012 rolls on, you will see 5 & A Dime venture into the international scene, performing early in the year in Calgary, Canada while still throwing down hard at colleges throughout the U.S. Also be on the look out for substantial growth in his production, with 5 & A Dime venturing into remixes and original production. 5 & A Dime and his #BASSMOB movement will for sure be a force to reckon with both in the college market and international EDM scene throughout the rest of 2012 and into 2013!
