Little Dragon


Gothenburg's Little Dragon has steadily grown from being the biggest underground secret to international acclaim after three successful albums and touring all over the world.

Gaining popularity among such tastemakers led to collaborations with artists like Big Boi, The Gorillaz, and SBTRKT.

Shy Girls

P. Morris


Shy Girls, née Dan Vidmar, is a 27 year old vocalist and producer out of Portland, OR. Vidmar spent the last several years working nights at an emergency room, returning home in the pre-dawn hours to craft a unique breed of soulful future-pop. What began as a bedroom recording project became an all-consuming passion for Vidmar, who took a leap of faith and decided to turn down his acceptance to medical school and focus on Shy Girls full time.

For her 5th studio album, TAIGA, Nika relocated from central Los Angeles to Vashon Island in the Puget Sound, in effort to immerse herself in the natural world. Vashon is a densely-wooded enclave with no bridges connecting it to the mainland. The taiga is the world’s largest terrestrial biome; a wild boreal forest covering large portions of Russia, Canada, Eurasia, referred to as the Northwoods where it connects in North America.

Christian Martin / Justin Jay


Ten years ago, the DIRTYBIRD label coalesced around a grill party in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. Those free parties, thrown using a sound-system bought on layaway, were pivotal in defining the DIRTYBIRD sound and attitude. Ten years later, DIRTYBIRD has proven to be one of North America’s most definitive and fun dance music labels, with its signature blend of techno and house, passed through a hip-hop crunkifier, still getting booties shakin’, sweat flying and underground connoisseurs nodding heads in approval.

Jamie xx


In January this year, Jamie xx stepped aside from the mixing desk of his solitary studio bunker space in Old Street and decided that In Colour was finished. It had been three years since he had began work on the first cut that suggested he had a solo record in him, Girl. Both the title and carefully calibrated, vibrant accompanying graphic design imagery for the album are a deliberate delineation away from the chic monochromes that have marked his work with The xx. “I wouldn’t have called it In Colour if the record had sounded dark”, he notes. When he began the project, not even knowing where it would take him, he was well aware of that possibility.
