Maribou State (DJ Set)
Since then they have steadily built a glowing international reputation via a string of well-loved EPs and a fistful of remixes (including Kelis, Lana del Ray, Ultraísta) since 2011. Plaudits from the electronic press have flowed thick and fast alongside support from radio heavyweights: Zane Lowe, Huw Stephens, Annie Mac, B. Traits, Pete Tong and Gilles Peterson amongst others.
The past 18 months has been a glorious blur, with weekends dedicated to touring – the duo have zipped around UK, Europe, the US and Australia – whilst keeping a strict 9-to-5 work ethic in the studio during the week that has enabled them to record their finest work to date. It’s hard to pick out highlights, but Glastonbury, Warehouse Project, and Bestival were particularly special milestones.
Intrigues by the dynamics of electronic music for the dance floor as much as the richness and human quality of live instrumentation and song craft, they have worked tirelessly to evolve and forge a unique, compelling and deeply soulful marriage of the organic and the synthetic, showcased on their forthcoming debut.
JDH & Dave P (FIXED)
JDH and Dave P, hailing from New York and Philadelphia respectively, are the duo behind the FIXED parties, which have been running for thirteen years. The duo have toured numerous times with Simian Mobile Disco and Soulwax and have played Coachella, PS1, Camp Bisco, FYF Fest, and at Pacha Ibiza. In addition, Dave throws the Making Time party in Philly, and you can catch his "Making Time RADio" show once a month on XPN.
Heathered Pearls (DJ Set)
The ambient project Heathered Pearls was the brainchild of Polish-born Brooklynite Jakub Alexander, who had a career deeply rooted in music before he ever released any of his own. He was music “curator” for Tycho’s ISO50 blog, Tycho’s manager, a DJ under the Aarnio moniker, and, latterly, head of A&R at Ghostly International, the label that released his music. Introduced as a young man to ambient music by his mother, he loved the sound but hated the “Pure Moods” clichs often associated with it, and strove to create his own vision of the genre that avoided these. In 2004, while residing in Ann Arbor, Michigan, he founded the eclectic electronica netlabel Moodgadget alongside his friend Adam E. Hunt, with the aim
of “exposing the diversity in electronically made music.” Many of the label’s alumni later went on to release albums on Ghostly.
After years of daily DJ mix podcasts on ISO50 as Aarnio, in 2011 his own music was released for the first time, as a now-hard-to-find EP compilation, Polite Isle, was issued under his real name through the digital subscription-only Ghostly Music Service; then, in December 2012, the Ghostly label proper put out his debut album as Heathered Pearls, Loyal. Created to help him deal with his own anxiety and heavily inspired by his favorite experience sitting by the ocean at night the hypnotic, soothing, melodic, loop-based ambient record dropped on vinyl and digital only. ~ John D.
