Berkeley, California based producer Thriftworks offers his own uniquely original take on forward thinking electronic music, weaving eclectic samples and explosive modern bass that continually pushes the envelope while taking the art of beat-crafting to new heights. Garnering much praise from fans and critics alike with his steady stream of new material, Thriftworks is quickly becoming known as one of the finest up and coming experimental producers with his outside the box sound and unclassifiable style. Thriftworks' use of deep low-end and wall to wall synths seem to channel something ancient and mysterious, offering up an intoxicating musical high with an invigorating breath of fresh air. These sounds activate the senses, enrapture the mind, move the body and leave audiences begging for more.

ElectroChemical is unhinged psychedelic funk music spawned from the inner mind of Will Davis. Residing in Asheville, North Carolina, ElectroChemical has been constructing songs since 2011. The current manifestation of ElectroChemical includes Will Davis and recent addition Kent Spillman on drums. Much like the sciences of chemistry and physics, (which are the inspirational foundations behind the bands name) opening ears and liberating minds through spontaneous reactions and chemical change is how this duo approaches life and their music.
Through incorporating original live bass and drums with an array of electronic melodies, ElectroChemical fills the sound waves with an eclectic arrangement that weaves modern and ancient tones. Creating music that is consciously driven and focuses on their unique bass-drum dynamic, the listener is encouraged to venture inward while simultaneously finding connections within the world around. Traveling through technological and organic musical dichotomies, the audience is encouraged to suspend their previous beliefs of music and are inspired to create their own reality incorporating genres not previously defined.

Splynter is a fresh, introspective look into the minds of Graham Tolbert and Carter Magee. Based in Asheville North Carolina, Splynter's sound is that of shared emotional and cognitive dissonance/resonance that blurs the line between music and musician. Their unique live performances captivate the audience with an edgy, unpredictable, and well rounded sonic experience. Splynter's all original compositions range from established styles such as Drum n Bass, House, and Downtempo, to freeform Avant Garde nonsense reminiscent of an intelligent yet ancient extraterrestrial dialect. As we humans approach omnicide, Splynter moves us through to the assimilation of consciousness and digital information.
