Yak Attack is a live electronica power trio from Portland Oregon. Founded in 2013, the band has experienced steady growth over the past few years and has been building buzz by touring frequently throughout the Pacific Northwest, California, and the Mountain West.
The group's music is best described as "organic electronica", using skillful playing, live loops, and tightly constructed songs combined with raw improvisation to build high-energy and uplifting dance music from scratch, where every note is played and recorded live. The band draws on influences from a wide spectrum of
electronica, such as house, drum and bass, and breakbeat, along with elements of jam, funk, and jazz.
The result is a live show that is musically sophisticated but widely accessible, with a diverse and engaged fanbase that travels to out of town shows and continually returns to see what the band will do in its next live show.
Yak Attack has performed at summer festivals such as Treefort Fest, Joshua Tree Music Festival, Guitarfish, Northwest String Summit, Apple Jam, and Contour Music Festival. The band has also established itself as a strong afterparty band with capacity late night shows following acts such as Phish, String Cheese Incident, and Sound Tribe Sector 9. They have shared the stage with many established or up and coming acts such as Juno What?, TAUK, Turkuaz, The Magic Beans, BreakScience, Funk Hunters, YAMN, Fruition, World's Finest, and Acorn Project. The band continues to ramp up its tour schedule and looks forward to bringing its unique dance party to a venue near you.
Jigsaw Falling is a progressive alternative/fusion band based in Los Angeles, CA. The band consists of members Roman Gastelum (Vocals, Bass, Lyrics), Arturo Lopez (Guitar, Engineer) and Jason Austan (Drums, Producer, Engineer). Jigsaw Falling's self-titled debut EP incorporates diverse influences - the melodic format, riffing and power of Rock/Pop, the textures and harmonic invention of "modern" Jazz, the intricate lyricism and attitude of organic Hip-Hop, and at times, the groove and flair of Funk and Latin music. All recorded in their basement studio, the reflections their environment are shown on this lyrical journey through the trials and tribulations of a young adult and artist in the urban jungle of Los Angeles.
