Berkeley, California based electronic producer Jake Atlas, aka Thriftworks, offers up his own fresh, outsider style weaving eclectic samples and explosive modern bass that takes the art of beat-crafting to new heights. Garnering much praise from fans and critics alike, his latest release, 'Rainmaker,' is quickly becoming known as one of the finest electronic albums of 2012. The album's throbbing, deep low-end and wall to wall synths seem to channel something ancient and mysterious, offering up an intoxicating musical high. These sounds activate the senses, enrapture the mind, move the body and leave audiences begging for more.

Paper Tiger is the meeting of two alter-egos who relish in the space where inhibitions die and art is made. They are inspired by sounds, instruments, vinyl records and ideas that otherwise may never connect. Beautiful Asheville NC, is their home. They love the city, they love nature, they draw inspiration from both. They recycle. This is a short version of their story.
Paper Tiger has hit a stride in creating original lounge/trip hop, quickly establishing themselves as both a production duo and a dynamic live band in the Asheville music scene and the Southeast. With the studio project consisting of producer Isaac Gottfried (MINGLE) and producer, singer, dj, songwriter Molly Kummerle (RubySlippers, Molly Parti), they craft moody, original downtempo music that Shuffle Magazine calls, "An eclectic blend of trip-hop, Shirley Bassey/Bond theme and lounge jazz ... late-night mood music for the louche and lovelorn alike." Their debut album Me Have Fun was met with rave reviews and props from both regional and national media, as well as voted into the top 20 Regional releases on WNCW. They've opened for the likes of King Britt, NOMO, Bonobo, Mark Farina, and Brooklyn electronic musician Eliot Lipp.
