Kiran NoteZ: https://soundcloud.com/kirannotez
Bass Music Producer and abnormal human from Philadelphia...currently in Los Angeles. Kiran has been producing music for over 10 years...He is known for his sick beats, high energy and glitchy new age sounds. Dig a little deeper to unveil his inimitable personality, and unfaltering ethic to design masterpieces that not only appeal to his Hip-Hop upbringing, but incorporate today's most popular yet unique live instrumental sounds to the genre known today as Dubstep and Glitch-Hop. His music is filled with the passion of a composer, with the flavor and style of the street. His diverse styles fit almost any pallet. From Metal remixes to crunky glitch hop Kiran covers it all. From his first performance this self- trained musician has been something special, I can't imagine what Kiran has coming next! Kiran will be releasing under his own label Basshop Records
MoOnSHakER: MoOnSHakER combines the heavy-hard hitting filthy Bass of Brian "Bstee" Steele and Mahal as a collaborative Tag-Team Duo. Fun onstage presence + Heavy, Danceable Dubstep = Win. Their Hour Long "BassFace Set" is available as a Free Download on their Soundcloud Link above. It includes works from Phutureprimative, Ionik, and a mid tempo Alpha Data Remix of Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Can't Stop". Simply stated, it's a Dank Mix! MoOnSHakER will warm up the crowd nicely on a Friday!
Adam Sound: http://www.adamssound.com/
Singer/Songwriter, Adams Sound has been crafting pop music by blending uptempo funk and reggae into folk songs played on his acoustic guitar. The unique and distinct vibe is an extension of his musical and personal roots."I grew up in a broken home that was full of toxic energy. Addiction, despair, and violence is what I was surrounded by on a daily basis. It was the music that I would hide behind. I would close my door, start writing songs, and shut off the world. Positive, uplifting music has always given me the energy to overcome and rise above life's challenges. My family gave me the gift of rhythm as they would introduce me to African music and Bob Marley. I started getting into more experimental genres such as Outkast and Sublime. I never wanted to fall into the same patterns of the people in my community. I used my intuition to guide me and found a way out." Adam is now an accomplished music producer and singer/songwriter. He has managed to make a life out of performing, producing, and licensing his songs. He is currently in Los Angeles making his debut album and finding the right musicians to tour with.
At the age of sixteen Apaulo8 (aka Apaulo Infinite) hit the festival and rave scenes as a Dj, mixing Hip Hop and Break Beats, performing with some of the biggest names in Hip Hop including Nas and Outkast. At 20 years of age he founded a band called Lighter Side Of Being, getting more into the live aspect of music, playing guitar, rapping, singing, and mixing jamband styles with reggae, hip hop and a pop aesthetic. Lighter Side has gone on to do shows with Bob Weir, Umphree's Magee, and more, but it wasn't until he started working with Garret and Mark Boyce of G Love And Special Sauce that he got his break. This alliance formed a new band and a hit album in Southern California named 3rd Borough, which instantly put him on the map as a fresh voice in the SoCal music scene. 3rd Borough's eclectic mix of cameos by heavy hitters (Wu Tang Clan, Jurassic 5,Slightly Stoopid, G Love and Special Sauce) made an album that was extremely unique. Something like the beatles meets modern hip hop. This lead to him appearing on stage as a featured MC and vocalist with all types of acts, including Knowa Knowone, Main Flow (of the Blackstar/Talib Qwali camp) G Love and more. Apaulo is currently releasing his first solo album through Street Ritual, putting together a Dub/Glitch /Hip Hop /Pop sound that can't be resisted. If you wanna sweat, dance, cry, and laugh, this act will not let you down. The next level of west coast music, conscious lyrics, cross pollinating with Dubstep and glitch-hop dance beats.
