Rainbow Arabia started with a couple messing around with microtonal scales on a Lebanese keyboard. That grew into an EP which led to a tour with Gang Gang Dance that snowballed into an ongoing globe-hopping fusion of North African, Arabic and Asian elements filtered through gothic and chill wave into a danceably multilingual mélange.
San Gabriel is a new beat-happy project from Butchy Fuego, the producer, drummer, multi-instrumentalist, DJ, recording engineer and visual artist who has played with acts like Boredoms, M.I.A., Pit Er Pat, Aska Matsumiya, Matteah Baim, Hisham Bharoocha and Lucky Dragons to name a few.
Thriftcoteque is the crate digging duo of Eddie Ruscha (Secret Circuit, Dub Club) and Jason Mason. Like magical twins, their super-power is their impossible collection of italo-disco, acid house, cosmic and Balearic beats.
Matthewdavid scours the universe for aural snippets he can work into warm washes of psychotropic sound. He's made a name for himself among the sound technicians of the LA experimental music scene at Dublab, Poo-Bah, Low End Theory and Brainfeeder.
The Urxed is the solo project of Rob Barber from High Places. With an experimental cut and paste approach to ambient sound as suited to art spaces as traditional music venues, he has performed at the Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art, the New Museum, and performed live scoring to Doug Aitken's film "Migration" at Regen Projects in Los Angeles.
Mor Elian is a DJ from LA by way of Tel Aviv known for her circinate mixes of Afrobeat, breaks, Latin, boogaloo, house, reggae, jazz, soul and downtempo.
Popstatic, the Chicago-bred half of LA duo MagicHour, weaves disparate sounds with no regard for boundaries of genre, geography or time into a waking dream.
