Late Night Radio
Late Night Radio, is more than just a name its an idea. Bringing together energy & emotion Alex Medellin not only moves dance floors but imaginations. His deep admiration for early soul, funk & jazz results in an eclectic fusion which brings together everything from hard bass, to hip hop drums and organic instrumentation. After the release of his debut ep Concrete Collage in December of 2012 LNR has been steadily working his way up the scene with no intentions of looking back. LNR has showcased his sets comprised of originally produced tracks at well know Colorado venues Ogden Theater, Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, Hodis Halfnote, and others sharing the stage with artists from Michal Menert and Griz, to Two Fresh and Mux Mool. With the concept of no restrictions Alex has a constantly evolving sound and hunger for something new, so keep your mind and ears open for Late Night Radio.
Having recently made a surprise guest appearance performing at a sold-out Pretty Lights Red Rocks show in Denver, CO - Marvel Years (a.k.a. Cory Wythe) the up-and-coming producer out of Burlington, Vermont, is making waves within the electro-soul hip-hop scene. Gaining wide noteriety throughout EDM blogs and social media, Marvel Years is more than just a DJ/producer. He is a genius on guitar and shreds well beyond what you would expect from a guitarist his age. His blend of electronic beats and shredding soulful guitar on his original tunes and remixes creates a sound that is a unique hybrid of EDM combing glitch, retro-funk, soul, jazz and hip-hop. Often compared to Pretty Lights and GriZ, Marvel Years has smooth funky sounding music on lock, and his releases are primed and ready for you to forget your troubles and enter into a happier state of mind that are impossible not to love.
Marvel Years is working on future releases and will be dropping a number of singles and collaborations throughout the fall of 2013.
Marvel Years’ sophomore EP appropriately titled Nowhere But Up was released on April 9th through Gravitas Recordings with great success. It is available for free download, as is all Marvel Years music.
A kid with a dream, Marvel Years has the talent and the drive as he becomes a household name. Keep your eye on this fresh artist who is making big moves…. And become marveled yourself.
What happens when gritty electronic basslines meet vintage sample laced hip hop? You get the boom bap sample sound of indie producer Artifakts. Artifakts is the ever-evolving, electronic hip-hop project of Garret Meyer. Ranging from gritty down-sampled soulful stomp to mellow, airy and ambient hip hop, Artifakts has carved out a unique sound that not even trip hop can touch.
Hailing out of small town Newton, Wisconsin, 20 year old Garret began the collaborative project “Artifakts” in February 2012, and was joined by fellow 20 year old electronic producer William Thompson (Charleston, South Carolina) in March 2012. Following a summer festival circuit and live debut, Artifakts released the 11 track “Like This If” beat tape independently, featuring a smorgasbord of vinyl sampled, short electronic infused hip hop and airy trip-hop instrumentals à la Flying Lotus, Michal Menert, and DJ Shadow. Artifakts is set to release an EP in 2013 with sole works from Meyer.
Artifakts has also shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the scene such as Pretty Lights, MartyParty (of PANTyRAiD), and Cherub; not to mention plenty of collaborations with producers around the US. With multiple tracks under his belt, Artifakts set himself apart as one of the most sought after new electronic producers around.
Krooked Drivers is an electrohiphopsoul duo consisting of Maddy O'neal and Donnie Dalbora based in Denver Colorado. Their sound is a combination of classic boom-bap hip hop drums with heavy hitting bass lines accompanied by warm soulful samples. Their influences range from classic 90's hip hop to jazz, soul, funk and everything in between. When it comes to live performance Krooked Drivers will keep you on your toes fusing high energy and emotion that explodes into an all out dance party. Krooked Drivers is an ever evolving duo striving to push the envelope of production as well as their own sound, imagination, and creativity.
