ill-ēsha
For many years ill-esha has weathered the dynamic, often ephemeral soundscape of electronic music, simply by being an original. “I’m not really an observer. I’m very much a participant and a creator,” self-describes the Vancouver, British Columbia-born artist, songwriter, producer, and DJ. “Everything I do in my life, it quickly becomes way more than a hobby.” From growing up in the EDM hotbed of the Pacific Northwest, attending raves in her teens, ill-esha accelerated her musical passions to the fullest. “First I wanted to be part of this culture as a DJ, doing vocals and curating music. After that, I also needed to participate in the music I was playing,” referring to her progression as a producer and headlining performer. “I’ve just been moving one step up at a time over the years, into being this completely original show.”

Calling her own musical style “weird,” it’s something that crowds have hooked onto. All the while, ill-esha has helped shift a paradigm in EDM. After years of suffering the music industry’s sexism, from being mistaken as a visual designer or a dancer to being discounted despite her expertise, it’s only made her sound hit harder. “I have to be better cause people expect me to be worse,” ill-esha says, noting that she plans to lead workshops that inspire at-risk youth—young women especially, to pursue the technical arts. In a culture where production is stereotyped as a masculine practice, it is ill-esha now making the records that male and female DJs are spinning.

A fully dimensional artist, ill-esha remains in touch with her DJ past. “In my live shows, there’s an extra layer of freestyle energy. I think it’s really important to make each show special, and make people have to see you.” Differentiating from the albums, she adds, “I like to make solid songs, and just a whole level of randomness when it’s live.” With turntables, keytars, vocal loopers, and other instrumentals integrated within her sets, all of the iterations of ill-esha’s journey are represented.
A blissful ill-esha describes her newest creations as upbeat, positive parallels to her life. “I feel resolved now. Hopefully my happy music is just as good.” With that
constant driving bass, freestyle, and soulful lyrics, it surely is.

Living Light


Entrancing dub and body-moving uptempo electronic opuses are the hallmark of the Living Light sound, blending global beats, indigenous voices, swirling symphonic melodies, and a dash of psychedelia that has lit up audiences coast to coast. Eartha Harris officially launched her Living Light project in 2012 having spent half a decade behind the keyboards in the pioneering live electronic hybrid Psylab. She now has two full albums and two EP's under the Living Light name, her most recent pair released in 2016 on Desert Dwellers' Desert Trax label, in addition to compilation appearances on Merkaba Music and Sofa Beats compilations, and official remixes for Papadosio, CloZee, Wildlight, Desert Dwellers, and many more heavy-hitters on the festival circuit.

The next Living Light album, "The Great Attractor", slated for a 2018 release, will strike a balance between uptempo dance and psydub focus while maintaining its connection to that classic Living Light sound.

The name "Living Light" has multiple interpretations, and simultaneously refers to living non-materialistically, maintaining a positive outlook, and all life originating from star-stuff.

Zoo Logic

Austin Rogers and Jeff Blair (Producers, Composers, and Performers) of Zoo Logic combine future bass with cosmic rhythms for a bold explosion of ear candy. Audiences will find themselves on a roller coaster ride of emotional escapades, largely due to their musical versatility and willingness to experiment.

Zoo Logic has shared stages with the likes of G Jones, Esseks, Space Jesus, Supersillyus, Of the Trees, and more. They have been featured at festivals such as Wild Woods Music and Arts Festival, Great North Music and Arts Festival, Disc Jam Music Festival, Cosmic Alignment Festival and Ziontific Music Festival.
