Connecting threads from the synth-heavy "Minneapolis Sound" to the future of sleazy electro-funk, Tickle Torture has been making waves in the local underground, as well as the national blogosphere. His chaotic live shows are half-party, half-performance art, and can often include up to 4 pounds of confetti. Armed with an all new live-band, Tickle Torture is the sex-pop soundtrack for a new generation of freaks.
DANKE HAS BEEN MAKING MUSIC SINCE SHE WAS A YOUNG GIRL. SHE WOULD SING MELODIES IN THE BATH TO HERSELF BEFORE BED, UNTIL SHE DISCOVERED A COMPANION IN THE PIANO AT AGE 10. SHE DIDN’T TAKE TO INSTRUCTION BUT RATHER WORKED OUT HER OWN MUSICAL LANGUAGE WRITING SONG AFTER SONG. AS SHE ENTERED HER TEENS, SHE STARTED HEARING THE 90s TRIP-HOP AND AMBIENT GENRES, WHOSE SOUNDS IGNITED HER PRACTICE, SPARKING THE FIERY FRESH CIRCUS OF BEATS, VOICE AND MELODY THAT SHE COMMANDS AS DANKE TODAY.
EVERYTHING FROM FRANK ZAPPA'S "HOT RATS" TO ERYKAH BADU'S "MAMA'S GUN" IS HEARD BLASTING FROM DANKE'S CHAMBERS. EMBRACING THE INFLUENCE OF MANY DIFFERENT GENRES, SETTINGS AND EXPERIENCES, DANKE'S MUSIC IS UNUSUAL, YET UNIVERSAL. HER CATCHY MELODIES, EPIC HARMONIES, UNIQUE PROGRESSIONS AND FAT BEATS MAKE "DANKE SOUND" APPEALING TO EVEN THE MOST JADED LISTENER. SHE NOW LIVES IN LOS ANGELES, WHERE SHE CONTINUES TO WRITE, CREATE AND ALTOGETHER EXPAND UPON HER INCREASINGLY BOLD MUSICAL ENDEAVORS.
Callie is an LA based producer and resident Dublab Dj. Her music aims to address tender feelings of vulnerability, tension and the overlap between our internal and external systems. Her musical intentions are grounded in the desire to reflect these concepts by selecting sounds, samples, and vocal manipulations which are texturally tangible, confrontational and able to occupy their own physical and emotional space.
Since moving back to Los Angeles in August of 2015, Callie has immersed herself in the Los Angeles Beat and electronic scene, performing shows with the likes of Kenny Segal (Team Supreme), Mystery Cave (Alpha Pup/Psychic Fortitude), Dot (Team Supreme/Unspeakable Records), Swarvy (Leaving Records/Street Corner Music), and Iman Omari (Vibe Music Collective). Callie will be releasing her most recent project, "Milk", via Rootnote Collective and will be playing The Unsilent Cinema Festival in Downtown LA September 30th alongside fellow DUBLAB DJS, Daedalus (Brainfeeder) and Dntel (Jimmy Tamborello).
