Curt Heiny, Archnemesis creates its distinctive sound by combining original music with samples ranging from early 20's blues and jazz to modern hip-hop and soul. With their EP Diamonds and Glass and LP Peoples Radio both available for free download at www.archnemesismusic.com, the highly anticipated third release Every Man For Himself is now available from their website and at www.1320records.com. With this addition to their ever-growing musical catalogue, Archnemesis continues to turn heads at festivals and club shows while elevating the standard for modern electronic music.
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.
