Phutureprimitive is the moniker of Northwest producer and song writer 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 with music, 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. After beginning a DJ career in the 90s, Rain began incorporating the music he was making in his home studio into his DJ sets. That was all it took to trigger a full blown love affair with electronic music and the process of its creation....and Phutureprimitive was born.
Phutureprimitive's music is singular and unique in its approach: Lush melodies drift across intricate rhythms, groove heavy beats and warm, fuzzy bass lines. Often exploring a dark and dense palette, his music also manages to convey a sense of tranquility and beauty, engaging the listener into hypnotic movement and often escalating toward a full kinetic experience. Conceived and produced in a digital environment, his music manages to convey more humanity and organic warmth then typically found in an often cold and sterile genre. Shimmering with cinematic qualities, his music ultimately speaks to both the mind and the body.
Constantly defying convention, the Phutureprimitive sound is not solidly rooted in any single genre nor easily defined, but draws influences from many sub-genres including Bass Music, Downtempo ,Glitch Hop, Dubstep, Breaks, Trip Hop, and more. Phutureprimitive has become a musical force to be reckoned with, performing in cities and countries throughout the United States, and Europe including New York, Nashville, San Francisco, Los Angeles, England, Scotland, Portugal, Holland, Italy, Croatia and Ukraine, and recently finishined up a North American tour opening for Shpongle.
Okulus Anomali is an Artist (Composer, Producer, DJ, Multi-Instrumentalist Musician, Poet-Philosopher/Writer, Graphic Designer, Chef, Opener of Minds...) Born in Budapest, raised in South Florida and travelling much of the world from a young age onwards to the day, Okulus Anomali's music is saturated with his passion for History, Culture, Science, Irony/Satire, Depth, Humor and Fun. His sound explores the full range of human emotion...for all emotion is an inspiration and has it's time and place for reflection.
Okulus Anomali infuses his own live instrumentation and DIY production techniques into his tracks along with working with some excellent musicians such as Iraklis Kalamenios (Greek flautist/Musician/Promoter) as well as various vocalists & percussionists. Okulus Anomali plays Guitar, Bass, Dumbek, various Percussive Instruments, Vietnamese Jaw Harps, the Fujara and some drone flutes such as the Snake Charmer and a few others.
Okulus Anomali has performed DJ and Live sets for way over a decade in regions including Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Spain, Hungary, Nevada and more. He continues to play at clubs, his residencies in Miami & such esteemed events & festivals including Ultra Music Festival, WMC, Earthdance, Burning Man. Okulus has written theme music for indie films, media projects of various forms.
At a time when it seems like many producers and DJs are leaning more and more towards aggressive music such as brostep, Afro Monk is doing just the opposite and bringing the romance back to the dance floor with downtempo sounds and chilled-out future beats. Combining fluid melodies, sultry rhythms and hypnotic bass, Afro Monk uses lush yet cutting-edge electronic beats to create a smooth and sensual vibe.
As a beat producer, DJ, music journalist and events promoter, Afro Monk is a cornerstone of the growing electronic arts community. His wildly popular bass music blog AfroMonk.com is the source where many fans look for new sounds and insightful commentary, which can also be found in his writings for The Untz and Big Up Magazine.
