SLAVVE is a two-piece band from West Palm Beach, FL. Though they have since relocated to Brooklyn, the duo has deep roots in the music they’ve always loved. Started as a home project by guitarist/vocalist Chuka Chukuma, SLAVVE’s vibe is all systems go. Fully formed in the summer of 2013, Chuka recruited drummer and childhood friend Marcos Marchesani, former member of Weird Wives and Surfer Blood, to make everything bigger and louder. SLAVVE can be heard in full effect on their self-titled EP on Bloodmoss Records. Recorded in just two days, the EP is a glimpse into the powerful, gripping force that is SLAVVE. In an effortless mix of punk, post-punk, screamo and hardcore, SLAVVE's self-titled EP spans issues of intrinsic uncertainty (“Better Half”), the strange pride of being alone (“Pity Party”), deception and frustration (“In Your Dreams”), and the futile nature of trying to make something work when it just doesn’t (“Out of Mind”). SLAVVE is paving their own way, staying true to the music they loved growing up while looking ahead to carve their own musical landscape.

JimHensonInTheViceGrip are a hip-hop duo making some extremely unglued hip-hop. To date, the pair have released the Yokayseeya & Vice Grip EPs followed up with this year's full-length Corbin Dallas LP, presenting what critics call "a reclusive blend of codeine-muddled production and split personality rap bravado".
