BIL BLESS (SOTEG, Bless Records - SoCal)
For some he needs no introduction... If you don't know know Bil Bless then you shouldn't miss this opportunity to hear a founding father of melodic midtempo breaks, and one of most sought after mastering talents in bass music, in a rare live appearance.
and featuring, on an inaugural visit to the US:
MR. BILL (Hass Records - AUS)
Mr. Bill is a project based around evocation, music written to excite the ear and the brain. It explores all sorts of strange production methods and musical theories. The music has been described as a distinct brand of 8bit glitchy funk as well as an audiological reflection of our world growing ever more mechanistic which seemingly takes sounds and influences from every aspect of life and a representation of the inner workings of the quantum realm when harvested through concentration and intent.
ELECTROCADO (Hass Records - AUS)
Electrocado was created during 2009 by Bill Day and Ryan Whare in Ol' Sydney town. They combined generous amounts of psy, electro, glitch, minimal and progressive, spread some avocado on top, then grilled it till it was steamin' hot and crunchy. The result is a tasty and satisfying meal covering a wide range of tempo's and musical influences.
MR. ROGERS (Ooze System - NorCal)
Mr. Rogers' brain is a fun place to visit, but you might not want to stay for too long lest you get stuck in the intricate, syncopated pulse that oozes from it. Mr. Rogers connects with dancefloors instantly with his totally unique style. His signature sound seeps out of every beat per minute, and latches onto your primal dance button. Mr. Rogers sounds have long captivated the West Coast underground arts community, but now the secret is out and this pioneering producer is poised to conquer the far reaches of the dance floor with his twisted, psychedelic take on bass-heavy midtempo, and glitch-ridden breaks.
THA FRUITBAT (Simplify, Memekast - Sac)
Tha Fruitbat is an electronic music maker best known for his disorienting arrays of synth and sample tones, woven together atop complex breakbeats and mutated basslines. His background as a trained musician (drums, bass, guitar and percussion) and audio engineer enables Tha Fruitbat to play, sample and record his own sounds into his compositions, creating his own unique beats.
RATCHET (Ooze System, Memekast - NorCal)
Ratchet has been cranking out a unique brand of twisted psychedelic breaks on the sly since 2006. Having showcased his talents in underground clubs and outdoor festivals, people are starting to notice his impeccable ability to craft a sharp, precise, ultra-clean composition. His first full length album, Warp Speed was just released on Ooze System.
