Gigamesh

Gigamesh is the stage name of Matt Masurka, an American multi-platinum selling music producer and DJ. Most recognized for his remix work, he has experienced a swiftly building reputation as one of the most versatile and consistent names in indie-dance music.

Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota (a.k.a. Prince's hometown and the city that inspired Funkytown), it is no surprise Gigamesh has developed a keen taste for disco and 80′s electro-boogie. The sound is immediately recognizable in much of his music, however he maintains a flexible aesthetic. Gigamesh considers himself an ardent fan of minimalist concert music, jazz, disco, film music, classic rock, and genre-bending electronic music. These elements have all combined to forge his all-inclusive approach to music appreciation and creation.

One of Gigamesh's more notable accomplishments was his fortuitous leap into the pop music world when he was hired to remix a song for Mike Posner which had hitherto only been released on a mixtape. A radio-length version of the remix ultimately became the lead single on Posner's 2010 debut album, sold over two million copies and launched Posner's career as a pop star. Gigamesh has subsequently continued to achieve hit after hit, attracting commissioned remixes for acts including Foster The People, Grouplove, Katy B, and Theophilus London.

In October 2011, Gigamesh released his debut self-titled EP on Our Label International, which receieved wide acclaim in the disco and indie-dance community. In early 2012, Gigamesh began to develop a close relationship with French record label Kitsuné, which resulted in them inviting him to perform on several dates of their highly-anticipated U.S. Club Night tour.

Xaphoon Jones (DJ Set)

Born and currently residing in Philadelphia, Xaphoon Jones is one of the many pseudonyms of the producer / multi-instrumentalist known to many as Noah Breakfast. Raised by Philly's R&B, Gospel, and Jazz scene (and one punk
uncle), Xaph's inventive rap beats first found a home in the early mixtapes of rap duo Chiddy Bang, and soon found its way onto releases from Big Sean, Dice Raw (of The Roots), Big Boi, Theophilus London and Wiley. Since then, Noah's production repertoire has grown to include the shimmery, textured pop
of Ellie Goulding and the lo-fi R&B of Aaron Livingston, as well as official remixes for Grouplove, Passion Pit, and more.
