As a producer his sounds are rooted in heavy bass and a blending digital and organic textures.

Huxley Anne
Los Angeles, CA
domeofdoom.lnk.to/HuxleyAnne
soundcloud.com/huxleyanne

Huxley Anne’s live sets are always fresh & original, pushing the boundaries between jazz, bass, and experimental music, largely influenced by the LA beat scene. Composing ethereal electronic music that evokes lust, pain, and movement akin to Burial, with an edgy hint of punk that creates trembling bass lines in the vein of EPROM & Jlin, Huxley Anne identifies an electronic artist. Surrounded by nature as a child, she spent her formative years studying ballet, playing in bands, and working on her three forms of expression—-music, movement, and visual art. Her music stands out, fusing elements of abstract hip-hop, heavy bass, experimental electronica, and textural ambience to create a new genre that plays smoothly in an art gallery or seduces you at the club. With her minimal gothic aesthetic, and shy persona, she often finds herself behind the synths on stage, or dancing, well-hidden behind the veil of her own projections. 

SHINY THINGS 
Vancouver, BC
facebook.com/shinyshinythingsthings
soundcloud.com/shinythingsshinythings

SHINY THINGS come from dirty places: rolling in rave dust since childhood, the colorful vibes awoken during prepubescent trips in the desert have transmuted into some of the future sounds of today. From the interior groves of the west coast, this one’s a contributor; when not on stage you’ll find him on the floor, with glistening wits and moves for days. Selections all with good taste, these hyphy but paced, futuristic but deeply rooted psychedelic sounds are delightfully hype at any hour.

+ Lighta!, Modern Math, Babel, Aufect - Van City BC +
Soundbwoy Obliterating Futuristic Riddim 'n' Bass Flex Killing sound since '97, and often described as un-categorizable, Taal Mala’s music is inspired by the perpetual booty bounce and it's sonic odyssey throughout new riddim prototypes, to classical and contemporary auricular standards, and takes influence from past, present, and future dub-wise rhythms. UK Garage, Grime, Jungle, Techno, Footwork, Acid, UK Hardcore, Reggae, and Dancehall are all partially responsible for the fusion that is created. As a member of the Lighta! Soundsystem, Taal Mala has remained one of the few DJ's still dedicated to burying an excess of tin pan soundboys with dubplates played on the vastly superior format of vinyl records.
Taal Mala's first vinyl 12", 'Criminal Youths/Mud Up' was released on Badman Press Recordings Oct, 2010. Other releases in 2010 include the 'Dreader Than Dread EP' also on BadmanPress Recordings, 'Stakker Humanoid - [Sub-Osc Remix]' on Jumpin' & Pumpin', Ill Gates & Meesha - Sweatshop [taal mala remix] on Muti Music. February 2012 saw the release of 'Evy Jane - Say So [taal mall remix]' 12" on King Deluxe Records. 'Lenses/Mirrors' was released on Aufect Recordings in 2011. Released on 10Pin Recordings 'Blackout' in Feb. 2013 and 'Output Your Insides / X-Axis' forthcoming on 10Pin Records in 2014. July 2014 saw the release of "White Label EP" on 12" and digital with Modern
Math Recordings, and 'Elegant Replica/Elegant Replica [Michael Red remix]/Michael Red - Change/[taal mala remix]' released on 12" on Babel Recordings in January 2017. Also forthcoming in 2018 is a remix of Sam Binga “King & Queen” featuring Rider Shafique and

Korra the Kid has entered the bass scene at an unheard of speed since her first club performace after her 21st birthday last May. As Deep N Bass's youngest resident DJ, she specializes in liquid drum and bass and halftime, but her long history in music and mixing has let her become a DJ who is fluent in the many genres of underground bass. After sharing the stage with big name artists such as Spectrasoul, Chimpo, Truth, Holly, and more, Korra the Kid has become a name synonymous with clean, quick transitions and unique mash ups. Having mixed for over four years and performed at prestigious venues such as Kremwerk, Q Nightclub, and The Wild Buffalo, it is clear her mixing style is the product of practice and an understanding of the underground music scene.

A staple of the West Coast electronic music scene, Matt McGiveron a.k.a. Pressha has dominated the decks as both an opener and a headliner for many years.

Whether he’s wrecking the dance floor as a resident of Seattle’s biggest weekly (SUBstance Wednesdays), sonically stimulating a crowd under the stars at some of the West Coast’s most beloved events including Burning Man, Paradiso, Emissions, and What The Festival, or blasting an arena sized sound system to a 20,000 person massive (most recently, Lucky 2013 w/ Pretty Lights headlining), he brings the heat with sharp precision, impeccable mixing skills, and the freshest tune selection on the block. Additionally, Pressha has put out several internationally renowned mixes through his SoundCloud and has more recently began focusing on creating original music and collaborating with other artists. ��Pressha has shared the stage with some of the biggest and most innovative names in bass music such as Skrillex, Andy C, Caspa, Eprom, Starkey, and G Jones, as well as toured nationally as opening support for artists such as the Polish Ambassador, Love & Light, and Gladkill. Seasoned technical skills, a profound love for the art of DJ-ing, and hundreds of shows under his belt, Pressha is a true master of his craft and one of the most respected DJ’s on the West Coast.

Mux Mool - Denver
Ghostly International
http://fakebananaco.com/#/music-1/
Skirting the edges of a hundred peeling stickers on dusty bins in forgotten record stores, Mux Mool didn’t set out to throw critics into a labeling tizzy—he just makes what sounds right. Jagged broken beats slip-slide across circuit-bent, pitch-shifted synths in a dystopian wasteland of 90’s nostalgia. The Mux Mool arsenal is a moody collection of instrumental dynamism vacillating between the serious and the silly.
He made his public debut on Moodgadget’s compilation, Rorschach Suite, with his track “Lost and Found” followed by an appearance on the Ghostly International and Adult Swim compilation Ghostly Swim with the ever-popular track “Night Court”. Lindgren found his audience amongst the neo-nerd ne’er-do-wells raised on junk food, taurine, and Adult Swim bumps. In a country steeped in pop and technology, a music geek with computer knowhow and cheap keyboards smashed the gatekeeper model with sonic sketches that went viral. His early work slipped onto “best of” lists in the mid-2000’s alongside fellow Swim alum Flying Lotus. Two Drum EPs and two full-lengths (2010’s Skulltaste and 2012’s Planet High School) cemented his Ghostly standing among the crate-digging elitists of the hip-hop world, but the nascent bass music movement latched onto the nomadic beatsmith, aligning him with the wonkier, brainier echelon of producers.
Brian Lindgren has been on the move from the beginning, hitting classy corners of happening neighborhoods, from Minneapolis to Brooklyn to Ann Arbor—dipping his toe into each burgeoning metro area, and soaking in the creativity that emanates from a scene on the rise. Relocating to Denver, Colorado, the epicenter of all things electronic, Lindgren is hitting his stride in time with the city that now more than ever towers above the landscape of the entire industry.
Now exposed to a vastly different audience of post-adolescent sub addicts, Lindgren didn’t tune in, turn off, and sell out; rather, the cerebral subsonic alignment of his body of work put him right in the crosshairs of tastemakers who heard whispers of his name all along, following the release of his most recent album Appetite for Production. The kids just get it. The Mux Mool catalogue is a hand-me-down from the older brothers of the scene, outlining where we are and where we’re going.

VOX MOD - Seattle
https://voxmod.bandcamp.com/
"Vox Mod’s ascent through Seattle’s musical ecosystem has been as thrilling as his densely detailed electronic symphonies. All of Vox’s rigorous research and development have culminated in his riveting new album, SYN-ÆSTHETIC. Collaborating with Palaceer Lazaro (Shabazz Palaces), Irene Barbaric (Eighteen Individual Eyes), Erik Blood, and others, Vox Mod (Scot Porter) has crafted a varied, organic-sounding collection of outward-bound songs that ingeniously commingle hiphop and techno tropes. These compositions sprawl elegantly into silky vastness, all stellar melodies and sleek propulsion." -Dave Segal, The Stranger

"Scot Porter meticulously hand-drew, frame by frame, the animation for his music video “Iridescent Asteroid Mists.” By laying a piece of transparent acrylic between his legs and turning on a desk lamp, he carefully traced and redrew the fractal shapes that populate the remarkable video, full of cosmic choreography and strange geometry. Choosing to do this rather than use computer-powered animation shortcuts is emblematic of the singular kind of electronica Porter has been making under the name Vox Mod. In a genre populated by mechanistic beats and robotic tones, Vox Mod’s music sounds like organic chemistry. His recent LP, SYN-ÆSTHETIC, is full of bio-rhythmic pulses and warbles that might soundtrack the coolest science-class video on cellular evolutionary theory. Performing live, he pushes harder to connect than his laptop-gazing peers do, headbanging more than most rock groups. While his album drops references to the early-’90s dystopian cartoon Aeon Flux, Vox Mod’s music sounds more like a bioluminescent Utopian future."
-Kelton Sears, Seattle Weekly

Subset - Seattle
Noise Complaint
https://soundcloud.com/subsetgetsit
You can never be completely sure what you’re in for when you see Subset perform - even he isn’t too certain what to expect. Honing his craft over the past six years in the demanding and eclectic New York City scene, Subset has soaked up the variety of music NYC has to offer and developed his unique sound by finding ways to weave all of these loose threads together.

From his weekly bass music party at Webster Hall (BASSment Saturdays) to his renegade sets at festivals around the country to massive sets at Holy Ship!, Camp Bisco, and Burning Man, Subset knows just what to play to set the perfect tone, no matter the setting.

Subset has made his name and built a following in an unconventional manner. The usual formula for DJs is to lock themselves away in their studios and become antisocial while their hone their craft. Subset decided to flip the status quo and go hyper-social instead. He has spent the last six years building communities and developing close, personal relationships with those who enjoy his music. 

BASSment Saturdays, the legendary bass music weekly Subset hosts and curates at Webster Hall, has become a home and a family for electronic music fans all around the Northeast. Some fans travel hours to be there every week, not necessarily for the headliners, but for the family and the vibes that inhabit that space.

Subset has also been an integral member of the Holy Ship! community known as Shipfam. For years, he has thrown countless preparties, afterparties, renegade sets, and meetups. In 2015, HARD recognized his aptitude for curation and event planning, and tapped him to curate his own stage at all Holy Ship! official preparties. In 2016, HARD recognized the demand that he had built over the last four years, and gave him sets on both Holy Ships.

As his reach expands, Subset is seeking to use his platform to continue and expand his curation, launching a monthly livestream series based out of TPA Studios in Manhattan as well as collaborating on new monthly parties around the US. Subset is also diving into the studio on the heels of his wildly successful collaborative remix of Destructo & Bot's SHIPFAM anthem. Expect more projects and a lot more new music in 2016!

BOGL

Griffin March aka BOGL, is a self-taught DJ and music enthusiast originally from Las Vegas, NV. With his parties, Soundpieces, Bogl has been able to host and play alongside current left-field artists from around the world in San Francisco and beyond for years. His charisma is like that of a friendly ghost; he is kept close to your heart as one would a godfather, while basically existing as an untouchable phenomenon. He’s become known for appearing out of what seems like thin air to play an eclectic selection of bass heavy productions, take you to an unfathomable dimension, then suddenly vanishing to another far off place. It make us wonder how it’s even possible for Bogl to exist. 

His career has taken him literally all over the globe touring alongside artists such as Diplo and Truth, he’s been a resident at Outlook Festival, Symbiosis Gathering among others, and makes frequent stops anywhere from Asia, to Europe, to Canada. With his career as a DJ nearing ten years, Bogl is moving forward to release secret production projects with fellow bass music artists, while leading the rapid expansion of Soundpieces that already has a long-term established legacy of blowing minds with their “good fortune” music experiences.

Tiger Fresh

Tiger Fresh is a illustrator/graphic designer, co-founder of the We Got This Label, hiphop/trap/whateverism producer, Dj, activist, swashbuckling psychedelic maverick and full time proponent of everything trippy. Growing up throughout the West coast, Tiger has had rap music in the walkman before Micheal Jordan was winning championships and is currently in Oakland California on a constant pursuit to keep the community on high vibrations through the myriad of creative endeavors.

El Papachango  (Oakland CA) 
El Papachango from Argentina moved to the States as a young adult and brought with him a love of music from South America that he blended with west coast underground beats to create a groove that is unique and infectious to dance floors everywhere.
Sexy, soulful and funky sounds come out of him even when hes fast asleep.

EPROM - Samurai Live 9-16-16



EPROM - Samurai Live
Tiger Fresh, VOX MOD, Introcut & WD4D, Hetrik
$12 adv, $15 door, 9p - 2:30am, 21+ 

Tickets at www.kremwerk.com

EPROM is one of the vibrant West-Coast scene's most colorful characters and an important cog in the international Rwina machine. He's a consummate post-snake person producer, and his sound varies from toxic hip-hop to searing garage mutations to bizarre concoctions somewhere in between. His beats jiggle and drip and contort wildly, always in some perpetual state of melting, churning, and mutation. He's had releases on Warp, Surefire, and Bristol-based Bad Acid, but it's his Rwina releases that have been the most visible and enduring, whether it's the timestretch torture and fierce melodic geysers of "Humanoid" or deconstructionist mayhem of his "Pipe Dream" EP, where dubstep and grime collide for a staggering beast that shakes off heavy blotches of radioactive fluorescent sludge with every beat that lands. His live sets are something to behold as well, emphasizing the hip-hop roots that lurk underneath his sewer beats, and an hour of EPROM is bound to turn your brain into to the same sort of goo that gums the gears of his distinctive beats.

Fans and supporters of Eprom include Flying Lotus, Questlove, DJ Shadow, Rustie, THE GASLAMP KILLER, The Glitch Mob and BBC Radio One's Mary Anne Hobbs, and the producer has shared the stage with many of the international electronic music community's hottest artists. With his new album, Metahuman, garnering critical acclaim from all corners, Eprom is finally getting the recognition he has earned as an integral part of the giant bouncing backbone of West Coast Sound.
