Bob Moses

Ben Tactic

Lincolnup

ARTIST BIO

“We were never happy just making music on acoustic guitars,” says Tom Howie of the organic-electronic sound of Bob Moses, the Brooklyn-by-way-of-Canada duo he formed with partner Jimmy Vallance. “Our live show combines what a DJ does with a rock band,” Vallance adds. “Everything flows together in a continuous mix for the dancefloor, but it’s all our own original music, with live vocals and guitar. Then again, we came out of a scene that was trying to change what dance music is – that pushed beyond the expected sonic spectrum.”

Monty Luke

ARTIST BIO

J Phlip (pronounced J Flip) known to some as Jessica Phillipe discovered house music in her hometown of Champaign, Illinois, just 2 hours south of Chicago. Sometime around her 19th birthday she got her first DJ rig – two belt drive turntables and a mixer lacking EQ knobs for $100 bucks! From then on, her poor roomates were forced to listen to a constant dance party in-between her Systems Engineering studies. There aren’t a lot of 4.0 braniac engineering majors who decide to become DJs instead of cashing in on their degrees but Jessica truly loves the music and has dedicated her life to it.

Tourmaline

ARTIST BIO

Digitalism is a German electro duo, founded in 2004 in Hamburg, consisting of Jens “Jence” Moelle and Ismail “Isi” Tüfekçi.

Flying Lotus

Thundercat

ARTIST BIO

Flying Lotus’ albums are events. They’re not issued with a mechanic regularity and they don’t subscribe to recognized formulae. For those prone to astral traveling and metaphysical introspection they are another piece of the puzzle. For those, let’s say more ‘conventional’ listeners, the records are grand and ghostly sweeping movements – the sort of which are rarely undertaken at present.

Trentemøller

ARTIST BIO

Trentemøller loves to create antipodes in his music and so the contrast between large and vast echo chambers and sharp, direct in-your-face sound bits are characteristic of his sound. Coupled with outstanding production skills, he creates fascinating song structures. Thanks to Trentemøller’s unique sound he has also been a much demanded remixer.

Blockhead

Muneshine

ARTIST BIO

Tony Simon, aka Blockhead, grew up in downtown New York City. As the son of an artist, surrounded by visual culture, he early on found that his passion was for music, for the sonic. A fan of a whole range of sounds, especially hip-hop, Blockhead steadily built a tremendous collection of tapes and later CDs from innumerable artists, a quiet accumulation of knowledge and know-how.

After a brief stint as a rapper, he realized his calling was behind the boards and not on the mic – and from there he began to produce beats.

Phutureprimitive

Kaminanda

ARTIST BIO

Phutureprimitive is the moniker of Bay Area producer and songwriter Rain. Early childhood photos reveal Rain sitting at the piano plinking keys, grinning from ear to ear… a true sign of things to come. Continuing his early fascination, Rain was later drawn to electronic music, inspired by its ability to combine the best of organically played instruments and the synthetic pleasures of sounds more exotic to the human ear.
