Flamingosis is the moniker of Aaron Velasquez, a New Jersey-based electronic music producer, beatboxer and DJ. The name Flamingosis is derived from a move invented by his father, a five-time free-style frisbee world champion. Flamingosis fuses together influence from beat scene pioneers like J Dilla with a deep love of vintage funk and disco to create new takes on old styles. in 2016, flamingosis released 2 records, "bright moments" and "great hair" and broke 15 million plays on soundcloud.
Chicago footwork producer DJ Taye made his name as one of the youngest artists affiliated with the Teklife crew, which he joined in 2010. Born in 1994, he began making hip-hop beats and rapping at age 11, and was introduced to the sounds of DJ Rashad and DJ Spinn in 2007. Entranced by the head-spinning beats, booming bass, and frantically cut-up samples, he began producing his own tracks in that style, and eventually racked up several digital releases and mix sessions. Tracks by Taye appeared on Hyperdub's 2014 compilations Hyperdub 10.1 and Next Life, and the label signed him, releasing his debut vinyl EP, Break It Down, the following year. His second EP for the label, Move Out, appeared in 2016. ~ Paul Simpson
Nu-Disco/FunkThe sounds of Falcon Punch are steeped in no particular musical tradition, but rather in a multi-genre background ranging from soul and funk to house and disco. A lifetime musician, producer and DJ, Avery Henderson (Falcon Punch) got his start in the electronic/disco scene producing from his tiny dorm room while living in Amsterdam in 2010. The now Colorado-based musician has crafted his sound into what he calls "Dark Island Funk", consisting of layered guitar melodies, keys and airy vocals.
Falcon Punch has performed at renowned venues and festivals including Red Rocks, Governors Ball and Verboten and alongside notable acts including Cut Copy, Poolside, Holy Ghost!, Griz, Orchard Lounge, Zimmer, Moon Boots and The Juan Maclean.
For his latest release, Borrowed Time, Henderson teams up with UK based Alexanderson. The pair is in the works on several other tracks slated for release late this summer/fall.
