(MAD DECENT/TEAM SUPREME)
"Djemba Djemba is music born from a state of permanent contradiction, held together by one underlying and adaptive principle: rhythm. Experimenting with polyrhythms, 90’s FM synths, and the all-important 808 Kick, Djemba Djemba crafts a sound that is both intelligent as it is brain numbing.
It’s easy to detect the influence of UK Bass music currently dominating clubs, yet at the same time feel altogether new, and in stride with the response taking place in New York, Chicago, Boston, and his home in Los Angeles.
With releases on Mad Decent, his own imprint Rabbit Records, and Beat Team Supreme, Djemba’s music has been supported by the likes of Diplo, The Gaslamp Killer, Rusko, Baauer, Obey City, Major Lazer, Paul Devro, and BBC Radio 1. With exciting collaborations in the works with some of the biggest names in EDM, and his finger on the pulse of the latest dance music via his co-club night The Melt, Djemba Djemba certainly has a few surprises on the horizon."
"Resident of Los Angeles based beat collective TeamSupreme and member of the Alpha Pup Records family, Henry Allen has only a handful of solo performances under his belt as King Henry. The New Mexico native gathers influence from Madlib to Jamie xx, giving King Henry a style that is constantly changing to encapsulate the current musical trends, while still maintaining his signature sound. From sample based thrift shop hip hop, to big room sound Top 40 R&B and pop, his inattention to one specific style is what fuels his versatility as a producer. Pushing past his bad habit of hoarding unreleased music, King Henry plans to release a debut record this year."

"Bleep Bloop is producer/dj based out of Northern California. With diverse roots in everything from hip-hop to classical, he is always pushing into the realm of the unexpected in his productions. His style spans from off the wall 808 blaps, purple, maxamilism, juke, grime and crosses boundaries into what some would consider as mutated club music. Sounds to go to Saturn and back to. With support from artists such as DJ Shadow, Freq Nasty, Starkey, Kode9, Boyz Noize, Doshy, Stagga, DNAE Beats, Chrissy Murderbot, Akkachar, and many many more, Bleep Bloop's music is being played out on most of our continents except for antarctica (maybe) and continues to spread across the globe and out into the black holes and stardust."
