Watch & Listen
DJ AYESCOLD comes from nowhere and everywhere. Her selections reflect this transience: her aim is to take you elsewhere, be it another decade or another continent. She spins the music she wants to hear, and aims to curate an aesthetic and sensory experience while doing it. AYESCOLD's sounds focus on emerging artists on the brink of something massive. These include experimental and future beats, Jersey/Chicago/Baltimore club tunes and soulful sounds from across the globe. Expect diversity, especially in tempo.
Based in the lazy suburbs of Maryland just outside of Washington DC, GUMP (Give Us More Power) are an alternative quartet, blending hip-hop with post-rock. With souls too tired for punk music yet too restless for a mellower hip-hop alternative, the members of GUMP acknowledge yet respectfully disregard the traditional genre boundaries set-up by those artists who came before them, as they try to fit somewhere in between.
Formed in late 2013, GUMP took some time to refine their sound and complete their debut EP 'Sleven', which was premiered exclusively via leading alternative music blog AFROPUNK. Gump was named one of 25 DMV Artists To Watch in 2016 by Brightest Young Things and their song “4 O’Clock” was one of D.C. Music Downloads Favorites Songs of 2016.
Stepping in to 2017, GUMP have begun work on their upcoming EP 'Beer & Wine', which is scheduled for an April release, with lead single 'War' out now.
