Visible Cloaks (of Rvng Intl.)

Portland, Oregon-based duo Spencer Doran and Ryan Carlile are the open-source musical entity known as Visible Cloaks.

Doran and Carlile incorporate an international array of virtual instruments to advance the idea of pan-globalism through digital simulation, with tones and colors cohering into a living, breathing pool of sensorial experience. With the “Fourth World” leanings of '80s Japanese ambient and pop—a crucial touchstone amidst a breadth of worldly musical influences, Visible Cloaks filter and form source material to become young again. Often the duo strip tonal elements of their specificity or randomize melodies so they become stirring and lucid. Essential patterns emerge, conscious experience heightens.

Live, this becomes an inviting and immersive multi-sensual feast, with the pitch-perfect visual aesthetic of digital and installation artist Brenna Murphy (also responsible for the Reassamblage artwork and accompanying videos, including the short film) extending the album’s exploration of global headspace into a visual, visceral reality.

Jacques Greene

Jacques Greene is the artist name of Philippe Aubin-Dionne. The Montreal-born and raised and currently Toronto-based DJ and producer is one of dance music's most captivating and enigmatic talents. The young house and RnB producer from Montreal has given the current musical landscape progressively deeper ideas of what house music can mean in the new decade.

Asmara

Asma Maroof aka Asmara is a DJ/music producer residing in Los Angeles. As one half of the duo nguzunguzu, she has released on innovative leisure, hippos in tanks, and mostly fade to mind. Also, as a member of the group Future Brown, she's released on Warp. Maroof also creates film scores and co-writes with vocalists such as Kelela and Dawn Richard.

One Child Policy with visuals by Philip Rugo

One Child Policy is an L.A.-based Chinese American producer, DJ, and sound designer. He was raised by two electronics engineers who were brought up in China during the Cultural Revolution; they sparked his fascination with electronic music when he was only 11 years old.

His breakthrough debut EP─Cultural Transmissions—was released in November 2017. Mixmag named the release "exemplary techno" in the December 2017 printed issue and also selected him as one of "30 Artists You Need to Hear in 2018." Look out for his hybrid A/V which cover a wide spectrum of styles in electronic music.

Callie Ryan with visuals by Amanda Kramer (100% Silk)

Callie Ryan’s performance creates an intimate and immersive sonic and visual experience which includes visuals created by Amanda Kramer (film director and founder of the L.A. dance label, 100% Silk), and live drumming by Arlen Peiffer, who utilizes Sunhouse Sensory Percussion, a next-generation electronic drumming software, to perform Ryan's production in a live setting with a fluid and collaborative energy.

Low Limit

Low Limit is a DJ, producer, and visual artist. His music has seen released on labels such as Numbers, Innovative Leisure, Rush Hour, and Modeselektor's Monkeytown Records. A co-founder (and art director) of now defunct record label and club night Icee Hot, LL's own productions channel a vast pool of influences—anything from the driving pulse of rugged house and techno, to hazy experimental atmospherics. He's also absolutely terrible at finishing songs, but continues to spend a great deal of time in the studio enjoying the process and is rumored to have a tremendous vault of tracks near-completion. Low Limit focuses primarily on both new and old gems within the wide-ranging sphere of house and techno, but there are no hard rules here. Whatever feels just right.

kyttenjanae Live

kyttenjanae Live serves as a retrospective for the artist's distinct and genre-defining work over the last four years, presented as an immersive screening. Familiar video pieces, VJ sets, and never-before-seen work from her archives are remixed and performed by the artist with a live score by long-time collaborator Philip Rugo. Alongside existing pieces, kytten's obsession with vocaloid pop covers and virtual pop-stars frame a new body of work specifically designed for live performance. An on-site installation will act as a companion piece to this new work.

Mamabear

Mamabear is the hostess of The Honeypot on Dublab radio and member of the illustrious Sweaterfunk crew, San Francisco's finest purveyors of '80s boogie on vinyl. Expect to hear a heavy dose of funk, RnB, and, most importantly, soul while she is spreading the honey. Drawing inspiration from the many cities she has called home (San Francisco, Chicago, Queretaro, MX, Las Vegas) Mamabear is eager to share that eclectic experience which is essential to her sound.
