DJs Rat and Mafe
In an effort to support touring artists playing new, tropical music creations, Mafe and Rat started Maracuyeah – a project cultivating events that remix and criss-cross cultures, with a mixtape-style Pan-Latin-to-the-Future sound that shakes crowds, and mixes in traditional & popular tropical rhythms they grew up with.Their sets feature everything from vintage chicha recordings, synth & rock en español, electro cumbia remixes + tropical bass bangers.
Listen on their SoundCloud!
Honest Haloway is a band created by D.C.-based songwriter Tim Kratzer; whose unique and provocative sound was developed years before the inception of the first EP, The Towns. The feel of the music evokes a fast paced night filled with reverie and intrigue.
Jon Kwest and DJ Underdog
Jon Kwest produces/dj’s Moombahton, Bmore Club, Footwork/Juke, House & Hip Hop.
Long cornered into a maze where Radiohead was a logical comparison by virtue of Bellflur’s knack for approaching things differently at every turn, the DC band is breaking out and delivering music recognizable on its own merits and, without actually being traditionally "accessible," profoundly accessible to listeners across many genre lines.
Mary Alouette has a certain je-ne-sais-quoi about her, and just might be New York City’s best-kept swag songstress secret.
Urban Artistry is an international collective of artists and dancers focused on the authentic and complete representation of urban dance styles.
