"Everything is not meant to be understood," says Flynt Flossy co-CEO of the musical phenomenon Turquoise Jeep.
Like many other visionary artists, founders Flynt Flossy and Whatchyamacallit felt industry boundaries were stifling their creativity. This encouraged them to combine their own talents with other like-minded friends and create their own label/ genre of music, EMB (Existing Musical Beings). Turquoise Jeep Records is the definition of complete artistic freedom with no limitations. Their videos on Youtube accumulated millions of views and began their international notoriety.
Since then they have been impacting the lives of people all over the world through their songs, videos, live shows, clothing line, etc. "Turquoise Jeep is the art of expression, another world. And for those who want to be a part of that world, we welcome them with open arms." deos, live shows, clothing line, etc. "Turquoise Jeep is the art of expression, another world.

Yip Deceiver, born out of Athens, Georgia, is the collaborative effort of producer/songwriter, Davey Pierce, and accountant/vibes manager, Nicolas "Dobby" Dobbratz. What had been a solo studio project for Pierce became a band with the addition of Dobby, and Yip Deceiverplayed their first show on New Year's Eve 2010 at Athens venue the 40 Watt club. Two years later, after the release of their debut EP and a split 7" with Kishi Bashi, both on Dobby's label, Aerobic International, Yip Deceiver is ready to drop their first LP, Medallius. The title encapsulates the elegance and coolness of their current lifestyle and implies the inevitable fame and fortune that awaits. No doubt, their sophomore effort will be drenched in hardships and disillusionment, the kind that so often come with such wealth and overwhelming pressure. In the meantime, the duo have enjoyed hours in the lab with outdated Midi hardware, tabletop technology, and analog and FM synths creating an electronic pop record with true soul and character. Medallius includes special guest appearances by vocalists Christine Pierce (Rareluth) and Simone Rubi (Rubies), as well as instrumentalists Zach Colwell (Chappo/Fancy colors/Sondre Lerche) and Clayton Rychlik (of Montreal). Look for Medallius due out Spring 2013 via Aerobic International (US) and Snowhite (Germany).
Kosha Dillz is the new kid on the scene with a long history. After touring as a guest with Matisyahu for 8 years, he continued to rise to the ranks winning hot 97 rap battles, getting his own playable character in NBA 2k11/2k13 and even recording with hip hop mastermind the Rza. To top it all off, he hit the road with Snoop Dogg in Europe and licensed his song "cellular phone" to #1 rated Superbowl commercial by USA Today.
His latest album, "Awkward in a Good Way" features his broad span of taste from underground hip hop vet Murs to legendary rap queen Gangsta Boo of 3 6 Mafia. Tying his interesting collabos into his Jewish heritage and rhymes in Hebrew Spanish and English, you will be sure to engage in a live show that is different from all others. With various song topics covering the dark background of jails, addiction and depression, Kosha has managed to persevere through it all in a form that is much different from the usual. It's no wonder Matisyahu hand picked him out of the pack to open for this years Festival of Lights.
