** Jade Cicada **
Jade is a material thought by the ancient Chinese to be crystallized moonlight that has fallen to earth to spread wisdom and peace. Cicadas symbolize rebirth, metamorphosis, and illumination, and with their dying breath sing with such power that their chorus of song is among the loudest in nature. Jade Cicada's music is a reflection of these ideas, and a constant homage to those who have inspired him.
** MICKMAN **
** TSIMBA **
tsimba is the alias adopted by quickly-rising bass music producer Mark Evans Musto based out of Brooklyn, NY, originally from Wallingford, CT. When it comes to artistic authenticity and ingenuity, tsimba sets the bar extremely high with his hard-hitting, genre-defying production and mind-melting DJ sets. Turning heads across the country with his Future Roots Sound, tsimba is undoubtedly building a reputation as one of the most dynamic, exciting artists in the mid-tempo/heavy bass scene. His background as a percussionist fuels his ability to build songs around complex, out-of-the-box percussion rhythms, while simultaneously drawing on inspiration from both western and eastern traditional music to create that distinctive tsimba sound. Remaining indifferent toward fads and what others are doing, tsimba is a genuine trailblazer in the realms of bass music, continually pushing the envelope. His mission is to not only create music that people will love, but to inspire and create an art form that celebrates all aspects of rhythm.
** DEEZ **
DeeZ is an East coast music producer currently living in Boston who is known for weaving heavy-hitting basslines with Hip-Hop beats for a unique and funky performance. He takes a high tech approach to creating futuristic music that awakens dance floors and captivates listeners. DeeZ is evolving beyond the traditional East Coast bass scene to deliver a distinctive organic sound that engages any audience.
** Nocturnal Status **
Originally hailing from Maryland, Nocturnal Status is a duo that consists of Rohan Bhatia-Newman and Benjamin Ricketts. Indulging in everything from grumbling, downtempo dub lines to riveting shakes of dance-able bass, Nocturnal Status implements immersive psychedelia rhythms as well as a diverse range of sounds and melodies to immerse one into the dark, yet beautiful side of music.
** SMIGONUAT **
Smigonaut is the brainchild of Josh Kipersztok, an electronic musician hailing from Seattle and living in Boston. He has been composing and producing his own tunes for over six years now, in a number of different styles that still manage to encompass a sound all his own. His unique rhythmic sense, coupled with unpredictable yet catchy melodies and basslines, have certainly garnered Smigonaut as an artist to keep an eye out for in the months to come.
** SCATZ **
'Scatz' is the adopted moniker of enigmatic bass music producer Mitch Bilodeau. Hailing from his Earth-based home in Connecticut, USA, Scatz delivers a refreshingly original flavor of electronic bass music that aims to invert previous notions of glitch-hop and dubstep. Scatz reinvents the electronic sonic experience by creating music that relates more closely to an unravelling narrative than following traditional song structure and form, which lends itself to a very unique live experience.
Though a combination of soul-channeling meditation rituals, interdimensional intervention, and copious THC and caffeine Scatz combines classic instrumentation with progressive, hard-hitting electronic production and sound design in his work. Scatz's releases through MalLabel Music and WUMP Collective (co-founder) have gained attention in their own right among enthusiastic members of the bass music community, while his live act continues to excite and intrigue an otherwise increasingly stale electronic music scene.
