Daniel Pineda and Asma Maroof, a k a Nguzunguzu. The group, which takes its name from a traditional Solomon Island figurehead used to protect against supernatural forces during canoe trips, offers a unique blend of R&B, house, cumbia and tribal music. They are known for improvising with, well, really weird sounds achieved through electronic instruments and a room full of synthesizers, as well as for an energy that Hanratty says is "incredible."
Dubbel Dutch is impervious to the crutches of genres, though a student of many of them. An accomplished producer of cosmic tone poems and club anthems from the abyss, many claim his now-classic Throwback 12" on Palms Out Sounds saved their lives–or at least taught them a lesson in modern retrofitting. A chemistry of pre-hispanic shaman cries, YouTube videos of American microcosms, and 90s UK rave flyers make up his aesthetic, one which is not often associated with the Lone Star State. On Hymn, his debut EP for Mixpak, his methods havenʼt changed, but rather have become more refined. --- Dave Quam
