Performer, producer, and composer Emily Wells is known for her varied use of classical and modern instrumentation as well as her deft approach to live sampling. Classically trained as a violinist, Wells also performs using acoustic drums, synthesizers, and beat machines. She has toured extensively in the US and Europe and will release her next full length album Promise January 29, 2016 via her newly minted label "Thesis & Instinct". Promise, a soul record in baroque clothing, is about friendship, romance, and risk. It is about forgetting and desire. The title is derived from the installation "Promesa" by Cabella/Carceller, portrayed on the album's cover, which depicts abandoned sites of pleasure. The eleven songs carry this same sentiment in their orchestral tones and unhidden vocals. So many have tried to define Wells' one woman experience as future classical, down tempo hip hop, greased-up blues, spectral folk, etc. It doesn't matter. By the time their creative label goes to print, Emily Wells is pouring gas on her former self and lighting the way.

Praised by VICE Magazine as the "mistress of new music" and named as one of 2014's Artists to Watch by The Fader, Lorna Dune has been turning heads since her foray into the world of electronic minimal techno production. An experimental pianist, who has played with likes of Steve Reich and the Philip Glass Ensemble, has a new take on weightier beat-driven techno which is both fresh in its approach to the genre and also a unique arrival through her journey through sound. Almost synesthesia-like images of "trawling Petar Dundov's Adriatic waters with an arresting sheer Balearic decadence and holographic gleam" (Resident Advisor) appear in the amygdala upon first listen.
Her latest EP "Miamisphere" released by Brooklyn's mysterious experimental electronic imprint Lo Bit Landscapes in 2013 has received premieres by Pitchfork and Boiler Room and has been featured in Resident Advisor, Red Bull Music Academy, VICE Magazine, XLR8R, Ibiza Voice and more. She has also caught the attention of the New York Times for remixing a Pulitzer Prize winning work by composer Caroline Shaw and also has an upcoming remix by composer Max Richter to be released on Detusche Grammophon.
Lorna Dune's highly anticipated full-length album "Transmutation" is set to be released in Spring 2015.
