Watch & Listen
Words will inevitably fail to properly describe Freddy Todd. Genre-busting could be is an understatement. You can't pin him down with lexicon like lazer-bass and glitch-funk; these phrases fall way short of capturing the expressiveness, fearlessness, and space-traveling qualities of his music. Hearing his music is akin to being abducted by an extra-terrestrial cruise liner where everyone is tripping on space acid. And if you are lucky enough to witness him produce, you'll see that he fittingly looks just like the captain of said space cruiser, both hands intently gripping his electronics like the instrument panel on the flight deck.
Based out of Detroit, Freddy Todd is truly a master of his craft not only in the studio but on stages across the globe. Without any pre-recorded sets, Freddy has the skills and the audacity to perform on the fly mixes of 100% original material tailored to his specific audience, mood, and venue each night, be it a theater in northern California, a club in the back alleys of Detroit, or an outdoor festival in the bush off the eastern coast of Australia (occasionally on special nights with his live drummer, ill.so.naj). His earth shattering, meticulously programmed beats and rhythms, his lazer crunk, funky psychedelic bass and sound design, and his brain tingling, intelligently soul-soaked synths, melodies, and field-recorded samples are sure to shake your consciousness as they blast through airwaves out of top notch sound systems across the universe.
Goopsteppa is Montreal raised Producer/Dj/Artist Alex E.
Fascinated by music, arts and their effects on people from an early age, he was introduced to Djing and electronic music culture in 2007.
After many years of performing as a DJ, he started releasing his own musical creations in the early spring of 2013, making an instant impression on the scene with his blend of futuristic melodic bass music, subversive soundscapes, captivating beats and surreal textures.
This lead to an appearance on Seattle based Mycelium Music, followed by releases on the Luminosity Project winter solstice compilation and an EP on bay area’s Street Ritual Records(not to mention many free releases on SoundCloud!).
After appearing at various events last summer throughout western canada, as well as Austin, Texas and at Burning Man’s Fractal Planet, he started developing a name for himself and a network of friends, fellow artists and promoters.
He currently resides in the snowy mountains of interior BC, spending most his time in his studio or out in the mountains. With a deep passion for music, a heart full of love and inspiration, you can expect to hear many new pieces coming soon!
Rest In Pierce
Venezuelan-born and Denver-based artist, Rafael Mata, paints psychedelic dreamscapes with an acute sense of realisism and a fun sense of abstraction.
