EMANCIPATOR

GHOST FEET

LAPA

ARTIST BIO

A sleeping giant of the electronic music world, Douglas Appling - more commonly known as Emancipator - has quietly established himself as a mainstay in the electronic music scene since the release of his debut album, Soon It Will Be Cold Enough in 2006. Classically-trained as a violinist from an early age, Appling's organic approach to electronic music production draws inspiration from a wide range of international cultures and musical genres, culminating in a refreshingly authentic brand of electronic music that has infiltrated global consciousness. 2015 was a busy year having released Live In Athens in June, and Dusk to Dawn Remixes - a remix album featuring massively-popular contributions from the likes of ODESZA, Little People, Eliot Lipp, and more - in July, 2015 and now his first full length album in three years, Seven Seas. Seven Seas is the product of over two years of work, collaborations, experiences, and live performances all culminating in a cohesive collection of songs that solidifies that Emancipator is only getting better with age.

Spanning 4 Four Tet studio albums, remixing, and outstanding live shows amongst many other things, Kieran Hebden’s career remains rooted in all kinds of musical camps.

His work with legendary jazz drummer Steve Reid during this period has been a significant milestone in Hebden’s career – what began as a handful of live collaborations (early shows in London and Paris in 2005 gave a glimpse of the great things to come), soon developed into something on a far grander scale. The fruits of a profound artistic connection that has produced 3 critically acclaimed albums for Domino records. Four Tet’s remixing skills remain fully flexed in recent months having already produced a number of remixes for artists such as Explosions in the Sky, Thom Yorke and Steve Reich.

KAYTRANADA

LOU PHELPS

ARTIST BIO

Born in Haiti and raised in the city of Montreal, Canadian artist Kaytranada has experienced an explosive rise in the past couple of years with his irresistible production and live sets, but the hard work and success did not happen over night. Before touring the globe and amassing millions of hits online with his series of beloved tracks and mixes, the young man came up as a true disciple, absorbing hip hop and RnB culture since his childhood and finding ways to make the music his own. Since the age of fourteen, when he first began to DJ and the following year when his brother introduced him to music production software, his output has been relentless. As he explains, “after he showed me the basics, from that day on I couldn’t stop making beats,” pumping out a beat a day for the next couple of years and soon after self-releasing a series of EPs and beat tapes that quickly began to expand his reach. Official releases on HW&W and Jakarta Records soon spread his name like wildfire and some instant-classic remixes by the likes of Missy Elliot, Janet Jackson, TLC, Danny Brown and others have cemented his reputation and his sound; an undeniable swing of the drums comparable to Dilla’s, a signature soulful touch in the melodies, and a healthy dose of funky bass lines. In the past year, he was approached by Brodinski to drop the single “Free Things In Life” on the hotly-tipped French label Bromance, has headlined tours in Europe, Australia and North America, and released his newest single and video “At All” which has already conquered dance floors worldwide and introduced his face to the world with an unforgettable video. Now, as he continues to bridge the gap between the dance world and hip hop/RnB, he is prepping a solo album for 2014 and a series of high profile collaborations that will confirm his position as one of the most important producers in today’s musical landscape.

THE OPIUO BAND

ARTIST BIO

For New Zealand native Opiuo, making music has been an undeniable passion that encapsulates his every moment. His incredibly original, against the grain style is often referred to simply as “funkadelic bass music”, a term he supports wholeheartedly. The producer who now calls Australia home first gained international recognition in 2010 with his single “Robo Booty” from his debut album “Slurp and Giggle”, which was a finalist for Best Dance/Electro Release at the Australian Independent Music Awards that year. His music has since reached the #1 position on the iTunes, Hype Machine, Beatport & Addictech charts. Racking up 5 million plays on his Soundcloud page, Opiuo swept the 2013 UK Glitch-Hop Awards with 5 wins. His latest full-length album “Meraki” was a finalist for the Best Electronica Album at the New Zealand Music Awards 2014. Opiuo’s unique take on electronic music has captured the attention of music lovers around the entire globe, with sets at Coachella (USA), Glastonbury (UK), Shambhala (Canada), Lightning In A Bottle (USA), Boomtown Fair (UK) as well as headlining tours across Australia, New Zealand, N. America, Europe, Asia, Israel and India. He’s shared the stage with some of music’s elite including Bassnectar, Moby, Pete Tong, Bonobo, & The Glitch Mob to name a few. Whether he’s equipped with his solo setup of various drum machines and synths, or performing 100% live as The Opiuo Band, his explosive live shows never disappoint. As a remixer Opiuo’s credits span far & wide, from Gwen Stefani to Kimbra, Pretty Lights to Infected Mushroom, KOAN Sound to Shapeshifter and many more. With such a grand scope its no wonder Opiuo’s musical meanderings are heard the world over.

PANTyRAiD

ARTIST BIO

pantyraid is the product of two music producers that met on the West Coast of the United States and share the same appreciation for well produced electronic dance music. Martin Folb (aka MartyParty) and Josh Mayer (aka Ooah) have always loved the art of songwriting instead of the typical club track production. They set off to write melodic, musical journeys within the electronic genre. Each song has its own character, its own intention, and often crosses over many genres of electronic and traditional music. One thing is consistent in all PANTyRAiD production, attention to detail, not found in typical electronic production. Constant variation in the beat, and an almost overwhelming palette of instrumentation and audio tricks and techniques. The combination of MartyParty and Ooah has started a movement back towards the power of the melody and instrumental composition. Together they have invented a formula for producing intense club songs that pull together gorgeous and modern electronic sounds with hard hitting beats, brining the best of hip-hop, dubstep and other forms of experimental electronic music. The music is a new flavor of urban beat, a fresh new sexy sound that draws those that love to dance.
