Random Rab---->

Emerging from his own distinct corner of the West Coast electronic music scene, Random Rab offers a powerful and unique contribution to sonic exploration. Often referred to as %u201CThe Master of Emotion%u201D his music is patently beautiful and melodic. With diverse influences ranging from trip-hop, classical and Arabic to bass driven compositions, his songs are considered anthemic and timeless. As a multi-instrumentalist and singer, histracks are organic, uplifting and stand on their own as a distinct genre. Listeners of all types of music can find something they can relate to in his sound. He has toured extensively across North America, including tours with Bassnectar and Shpongle, and headlined several festivals across the country.
There is no doubt that Rab understands a multitude of musical styles. He has been the front man of a heavy metal band, toured as a classical trumpet player, played bass in a country music band, was a scratch DJ for a jazz fusion project, was the singer for a rock band in Mexico and has collaborated with countless musicians of all styles. From acoustic performances in the Himalayas to rocking packed clubs in New York, Random Rab has found a way to connect with people of all kinds.
With a dedicated fanbase born from the San Francisco underground, Random Rab has become a Burning Man legend known for his sunrise sets that have now become one of his most sought after performances. His current popularity can often be traced to his breakout album, The Elucidation of Sorrow.. This album firmly established him as a recognizable force in the electronic music scene. His 4th album aRose, catapulted him into the state of momentum that is now taking hold internationally. His latest studio effort, Visurreal debuted in the iTunes Top 10 Electronic Charts as well as in the CMJ Top 200 across all genres.
Sometimes performing solo and at other times featuring collaborative musicians, the live experience is focused on a high quality translation of sound that is simultaneously sexy and psychedelic.



Govinda is the alter-ego of Austin based producer/composer Shane Madden. He began studying violin and composition at the age of eight and went on to study classical violin at the University of Texas where he fell in love with electronic music production. It was in Madden%u2019s pursuit of his gypsy roots that he opened his ears to music from around the world. From experiences learning violin with mysterious masters on his journeys across the globe and his passion for modern design and technology, the current sound of Govinda was born.

Govinda has played with Thievery Corporation, Tipper, Bassnectar, Shpongle, Cheb I Sabbah, STS9 and many more and been featured on over 25 compilations such as Buddha Bar II, Asian Travels II, and Nirvana Lounge selling a combined 400,000 copies. Govinda has played at numerous festivals throughout North America including Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, Sea of Dreams, SXSW and more. Govinda%u2019s music has been licensed on shows like %u201CRoswell%u201D WB, %u201CRoad Rules%u201D MTV, and %u201CQueer Eye for the Straight Guy%u201D Bravo as well as many independent films.

The Govinda live show is truly a multi-sensory experience that features professional dancers, live projections, resonating vocals and a sonical sound-scape. His live experience is full of vibrant energy that plays to its crowd. Govinda performs on Ableton Live accompanied by classical violin. Govinda is currently touring in support of his album %u201CUniversal On Switch%u201D which was released independently earlier this year.


Since the release of his 3rd Ep plus multiple singles and remixes in less than a year, Nico Luminous has solidified himself as a rapidly up and coming name in the West Coast Bass music scene. Based in Los Angeles, Nico cultivates his unique brand of %u201CGlitch-a-delic Soul Whomp%u201D for festivals, clubs and headphones alike. He holds dance floors in a sensual pulse while fusing Sexy melodic Dubstep, bouncy 808 Glitch Hop and organic elements into sound design masterpieces. A gifted MC/Beatboxer as well as a Producer/DJ, Nico is the only artist today performing with a wireless effects and looper pedal belt that seamlessly incorporates into his all original DJ sets. Influences of Hip Hop, Dub, and Dancehall are laden throughout and the music has an irresistibly positive uplifting vibe.
