Ryan Hemsworth (Live)
Ryan Hemsworth is a young producer from Canada with a remarkably productive output in the past two years and a totally unique approach to hip hop and R&B production.
With an early background as a singer and guitarist, he quickly weaned off rock into hip hop and more software oriented music, diving whole-heartedly into drum loops and samples. In 2011, his first release No Plans was featured on SPIN magazine's Top 20 R&B albums of 2011 and he quickly followed up with A Way and Kitsch Genius, which got him increasingly noticed for a singular sound attracting a number of music critics and artists from across the country. He soon began cultivating relationships online and became a go-to producer for MCs like Main Attrakionz, Shady Blaze, and Deniro Farrar, helping craft a sound sitting somewhere between chill wave and trap rap. Hyperbolic Chamber Music, a collaborative project with NYC clothing brand Mishka, saw him at the helm of a 22-minute posse cut featuring 26 different rapper from across America, and his remix treatment of Grimes, Frank Ocean, and Danny Brown have kept his name spreading in the past year.
With his first label release, the Last Words EP released through Wedidit Collective, Ryan Hemsworth continues his sonic collages and explorations, digging even deeper into unexplored genres and delivering his finest work to date.
Noah Breakfast is a producer born and currently residing in Philadelphia.
While his rap and hip-hop production credits are growing, (Big Sean, Wiley, Big Boi, Wiz Khalifa, and more) he's also produced shimmering, textured songs for British pop Queen Ellie Goulding, and the debut, self-titled EP from Brooklyn trio 'Wet'.
2009 marked his entry into producing rap records, and from there diverged into the realms of futuristic pop & club music, quickly becoming an in-house producer and remixer for NYC boutique label Neon Gold Records, delivering official remixes for Passion Pit, St. Lucia, Gorillaz, & MSMR.
Currently, he manages the mixing company and publishing imprint known as RARE MP3S, which this year has been overflown with club music, working on everything from Baauer, Nadus, & Brenmar, to the beserk Philly club music of young DJ Swizzymack.
