Traditionally known for his Kosmiche tinged Electro-Techno sound, championed at his Space Ibiza residency and as part of the extended Ed Banger crew and tour DJ for Radio Soulwax, it might come as a surprise to learn that Riton has released a Mix Tape Album called 'Can't Stop The Clock.' But actually this aesthetic has long been a weapon of choice for Riton "I think it's because I always loved the sampling aesthetic. It still interests me the fact you an make a song without playing one note. I don't think anybody had ever come up with a more radical and punk way to make a song to date. I started buying Dance Records around the time when guys like MAARS would make a track from 100 bits of other records. In this sense 'Can't Stop The Clock' was a kind of a reverse Mix-tape cos normally you might find rappers using other people's beats and samples to showcase there vocals, whereas I had the vocals I wanted and built new instrumentals around them.
So I think that adds a new twist!"
Different Sleep is the production alias of Rafa Alvarez, a rising producer and instrumentalist from San Diego, currently residing and attending school in Chicago. His original tracks transport you to a land somewhere between a party, a hangover the morning after, and peaceful contemplation. Blending elements of hip-hop, r&b, trance and juke, Different Sleep is turning heads all over the Internet with his steady stream of new tracks and remixes.
Different Sleep has received critical acclaim from online publications such as XLR8R, The Fader, and Pitchfork as well as airplay on BBC Radio 1 via Ryan Hemsworth and Flosstradamus. With releases and remixes of his own on various labels such as OWSLA, West In Dust, and Svengali Label – it is clear Different Sleep is making his way up with his soothing downtempo productions.
Machine Girl was created in an underground labratory by a secret society of buried Atari video games. They swore vengance upon their creators and so they designed the ultimate weapon; Machine Girl. Machine Girl escaped when she was only 10 years old and lived among wolves for the next 12 years of her life. Eventually she realized her place was not among the wolves, but among human beings. She spent only a mere week in human society before realizing that the Atari Video Games were right. She found an abandoned circus tent with running power, plugged in a laptop with Ableton installed and declared war.
