oOoOO (Chris Dexter) is a producer from Newark, New Jersey living in San Francisco. His tunes blend elements of mainstream pop, italo disco, southern rap, the Eastern European mystical traditions, and often feature female vocalists. Dexter's earliest years were spent listening to music and looking out the window of his Russian grandmother's Brooklyn tarot and palm reading parlor. Though he did not learn to read or write in English until he was 10, Dexter was reading sheet music and playing the piano from about age 6. The Wire's David Keenan has said oOoOO's sound feels like an amalgam of Steven Stapleton and DJ Screw, "albeit with a taste for Top 40 effluvia." He released his first EP on Tri Angle Records in October 2010. In addition to his original tunes, oOoOO has produced numerous remixes, including official tracks for The Big Pink, HIM, Salem, and Marina and the Diamonds, as well as unofficial versions of Lady Gaga and Nadia Oh tunes.
Emerging from the endless summers of Venice, CA to teaming up with Shlohmo, Jonwayne, D33J, RL Grime and more to form the Wedidit crew, Jasper Patterson aka Groundislava has transformed from bashful video gamer to fullfledged composer. Groundislava has roots that draw from 80s nostalgia, TV and pop culture that grow and transform into the 21st Century aesthetic of electronic music. Recently tapped for official remixes of Slugabed and Shlohmo as well as Kutmah's Brownswood compilation, Groundislava returns with the 'Feel Me' LP, the followup fulllength to his selftitled 2011 debut. A mature step for the artist, 'Feel Me' showcases Groundislava's unique sensibilities for developing sweeping soundscapes, luscious backdrops and somber tracks in a distinct sound all his own.
