Gorilla vs Bear & YoursTruly Unofficial CMJ Party!

Lee Bannon is an experimental hip-hop producer from Sacramento, California. His work has spread along the vast hip hop scene, having produced Joey Bada$$, Ab-Soul, Souls of Mischief and others. In addition, Bannon has evolved his sound into traces of trance, jungle, and deep house music and establishing himself as one of the few producers able to navigate across all soundscapes.

After a series of collaborations and releases he delivered the Fantastic Plastic album in 2012 and earlier that year premiered his Caligula Theme Music with Spin Magazine. Bannon toured with Joey Bada$$ in 2012 and appeared on Jimmy Fallonalongside The Roots performing Joey’s hit single “Waves”. He produced the B side to that single titled “Enter The Void” with Ab-Soul. In addition to the Bada$$/ Lil B diss track “Don’t Quit Your Day Job”, he also produced a few songs on the Pro era compilation Peep the The aPROcalypse and had a heavy presence on Joey’s follow up project Summer Knights.

In February 2013, he released a free 10-track project and follow-up to his Caligula Theme Music EP titled Caligula Theme Music 2.7.5 and a few months later, the calmer free EP Never/mind/the/darkness/of/it…Later that summer, the hard core jungle-influenced track “NW/WB” took the internet by storm and listed him on Spin Magazine’s top 5 artist to watch that month. Freshly signed to legendary UK label Ninjatune, Bannon is ready to share his official debut album at the end of 2013.

The Range is James Hinton, 25, of Providence, RI. He’s been making music since he was 13, first on a little Fostex machine recording looped drums and synthesizer. At Brown University, while studying Physics, he started making electronic music full time under the alias Stegosaurus, producing two albums under that moniker, ‘Quill’ and ‘Cower’ in 2009 and 2010 respectively. In the mid 2010 he started making music as The Range, drawing from more percussive footwork sounds. An album ‘The Big Dip’ followed for Astro Nautico (co-run by Obey City and Kuhn) in 2011, and then two EPs ‘Seneca’ and ‘disk’ for Donky Pitch. His next album ‘Nonfiction’ will be released by Donky Pitch on October 14th 2013.

He has received support on BBC Radio 1 from Benji B, frequently playing shows across the US, and completed remixes for artists like Howse (Tri Angle), Kuhn (Civil Music) & Alphabets Heaven (King Deluxe). In August 2013 he played The Boiler Room US, followed by a string of UK and European dates in October to co-incide with the album release.

Shy Girls

Having recently wrapped up an EP of loungey bedroom pop under the alias Federer, lead-Girl Dan Vidmar set to work on something more hi-fi and soulful. His new project is just that, specializing in a pastiche of smooth '90s R&B and getting down with everyone from Shai to Max Martin's late-century boy-band production. Vidmar's warbly voice and throwbacks to New Jack Swing bring to mind the success of contemporary blue-eyed soul boys Autre Ne Veut and How to Dress Well, but what separates Vidmar from his peers is his avoidance of hypnagogic trappings in favor of a more straight-up approach. And now that Vidmar has put together a band with Portland's local all-stars Ingmar Carlson and Dan Sutherland, you can bet we'll be hearing a lot more from this band once they start packing shows in the new year.

Sapphire Slows

Sapphire Slows is the alias of Tokyo-based solo artist Kinuko Hiramatsu, set to drop her highly anticipated debut full-length album, Allegoria. Hiramatsu, who started experimenting with electronic music for the first time in 2011, was a member of Tokyo's frenzied club scene and a devoted fan of dance music labels like Kompakt, Warp, 100% Silk and Not Not Fun. Her debut offering, which is being released by NNF, is pulsating with a radiant, glowing energy, as Hiramatsu lyrically explores the tension between personal desires and the anonymity that comes with digital life and existing within the crazed atmosphere of her surroundings in Tokyo. Drawing influence from the sounds of ambient, disco, house and dub, the album is out November 5th on Not Not Fun, and the first single, "Dry Fruits," is streaming now on Gorilla vs. Bear.

Saint Pepsi

You are the consumer. You are the brand. You are the Target. You are the image. Blessed be to you for living in the west. The security of falling asleep in your warm little bed because you were a good little consumer and bought everything you wanted. Andy Warhol would have loved you.

In honor of your material nature we are holding an event where you can "celebrate" your "individualism".

The theme is BRANDS. Which one do you hate? Love? Show it. So will we- and this is how.

DADT is pleased to announce we will be hosting the marvelous SAINT PEPSI on our stage!

Being written up in blogs and music magazines alike, his popularity is on a sharp incline.
