Taylor McFerrin is a jazz/soul/electronic musician and producer whose first recorded appearance was as a background singer on “Jubilee”, a song included on his father Bobby McFerrin‘s 1982 debut album.

Moving on 3 decades, following on from a series of singles and EPs, Taylor released his amazing debut album ‘Early Riser’ on Flying Lotus’ Brainfeeder imprint in 2014. The album featured guest appearances from Naipalm (Hiatus Kaiyote), Thundercat, Robert Glasper, Cesar Mariano, Marcus Gilmore and, returning a favour from 32 years prior, Bobby McFerrin.

Taylor continues to tour worldwide supporting the release of his album both as a solo act, and as a duo featuring jazz drummer prodigy Marcus Gilmore. In addition to headline shows around North America, he has performed alongside artists such as Erykah Badu, The Roots, Nas, Robert Glasper and Talib Kweli.

Quantic is the recording alias of British-born musician, Will Holland. Holland's sound is rooted in the richness of the golden age of recording with a fearless modern bite for the dance floor. His productions connect progressive musical ideas with spontaneous musicianship, exciting tonality & a fine ear for detail. His travels have lead him to record, collaborate & perform all over the world, from Festivals in Brasil, clubs in his native England and the outdoor stages of Japan. Beginning his career at 16, Holland cut his teeth with downtempo and instrumental-beats releases on 45 records -- first with UK label Breakin Bread Records and later, Tru Thoughts. During the early 2000's, he moved to Brighton and developed a fresh and original take on the renaissance of funk, soul and Afrobeat with popular side project the Quantic Soul Orchestra. Holland produced three albums with the Q.S.O., collaborating with the likes of legendary American soul singer Spanky Wilson, and Alice Russell; (Holland's soul anthem 'Pushin On' with Russell was recently sampled for Oliver Dollar's Ibiza hit 'Pushing On'). In 2005 he collaborated with NY-based producer Nickodemus on the salsa hit 'Mi Swing Es Tropical' (this tune received worldwide exposure through its use in a 2007 iTunes commercial, as well as the 2014 movie 'Chef').

A Philadelphia native now residing in Los Angeles, Tim Conley is a jazz musician, composer, producer and electronic musician. His solo electronic project MAST draws together different sonic elements and channels them out through intense live performances. With a composers mind and a jazz musicians desire for exploring new improvisational realms, MAST incorporates crushing beats, live guitar and keyboards and has journeyed throughout the US, Canada, Europe and Japan.

On Jan 26th 2018 MAST will release his 3rd LP “Thelonious Sphere Monk”, a cosmic journey reinterpreting the great Thelonious Monk Song Book in celebration of his 100th birthday. The 16 track LP features a diverse cast of extraordinary musicians including Chris Speed, Brian Marsella, Makaya McCraven, Jason Fraticelli, Dan Rosenboom and more. Each contributing instrumental virtuosity which these Thelonious Monk compositions demand. Tim pays homage to the significant history of Thelonious Monk and his esteemed compositions while bringing them into the future using modern electronic bleeps, bloops and beats in concert with the Low End Theory, Los Angeles Beat culture Conley is a part of. Harmonious with the mystical and metaphysical hand painted cover art by Japanese artist Tokio Aoyama, each track created is a unique world unto itself and the listener travels from one musical planet to the next on the spaceship Monk.

The 2nd MAST album "Love and War_" was released Oct 2016 via Alpha Pup Records. "Love and War_" is a conceptual album set up as a 3 Act play structure and features Taylor McFerrin, Tim Lefebvre, Makaya McCraven, the Fresh Cut Orchestra, Andrée Belle and more. Other notable MAST albums include the 2014 debut “Omni” featuring soul-navigating vocal gestures of Anna Wise (Sonnymoon, Kendrick Lamar), way-out raps from Brainfeeder/Warp's Jeremiah Jae and lullaby serenades from Low Leaf. Two conceptual EP’s “Omniverse; Verse 1” and Omniverse; Verse 2" soon followed "Omni" all via Alpha Pup Records.

Recently Tim was awarded a Jazz Residency Grant from the Kimmel Center (home of the Philadelphia Orchestra) to commission a new work along with three other composers. The 4 movement piece titled "Life Mosaic: reflections on Birth, Adolescence, Maturity and Death" was an electronic/classical/jazz hybrid performed by Tim with the Fresh Cut Orchestra, an 11 piece Jazz Orchestra and debuted June 2014. Since then the Fresh Cut Orchestra has released 2 albums on Ropeadope Records, featuring Tim on guitar and electronics, and garnering 4 Stars from Downbeat.

Tim has performed at the world famous Low End Theory in LA, the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, Lincoln Center in New York City and has had music featured on Mary Anne Hobbs BBC, Gilles Peterson BBC Radio and Nosey Apple Beats 1.
