-- About the Artists --

* FILASTINE *

Grey Filastine is an audio-visual artist born in Los Angeles, based in Barcelona, and often nomadic. He composes a dense transnational bass music that collides the lowest frequencies of dubstep with the highest-level beat science, acoustic strings, voices, and lofi street noises. The results are “Awesome and delicate… hybrids so fluent they defy classification.” -Pitchfork.

Performing up to a hundred concerts per year, Filastine uses percussion to control loops and synchronized video from a heap of electronics wired to an amplified shopping cart.

Spring of 2012 Filastine delivers the LOOT, his third full length work. LOOT was made in tandem with a grip of potent videos, and launches with a year-long world tour with stops on every continent. The freshly re-tooled live set uses custom software to pull off some deep AV madness, and sees Filastine expanding to tour as a duo, always joined on stage by Indonesian vocalist Nova or one of the collaborating cellists from the album.

* SHAWNA *

Shawna's passion for music began in early childhood while attending the Winnipeg music folk festival in Manitoba, Canada, where she grew up. There, she was exposed to musical genius from all over the planet, which greatly refined her ear for the subtleties and origins of all types of music. It wasn't until the age of 18 that she took an interest in electronic music, and began pursuing Music of just about every genre, crafting the art of spinning it all together in a smooth hot mess of the dance journey, while simultaneously always searching for that same quality of depth, fun and life in the electronic realm. She's been DJing "out" since 1999. She plays for the dancers!

* LOL BOYS *

LOL Boys might be the humans Markus G. from Montreal and Jerome P. from Los Angeles, or they might intricately constructed androids conceived on the internet. Either way, they have a penchant for head-throbbing, mind-expanding percussive dance music. The forward-thinking producers are fueled by equal parts shuffling tropical percussion, romantic synths, pitch-shifter vocals, and a hearty dose of booming bass. Initially brought together by the internet, LOL Boys share an appreciation for musical elements from all over the world, which makes their sets a variety of House, Tribal, UK funky, and bass-driven party starters.
