Berkeley, California based producer Thriftworks offers his own uniquely original take on forward thinking electronic music, weaving eclectic samples and explosive modern bass that continually pushes the envelope while taking the art of beat-crafting to new heights. Garnering much praise from fans and critics alike with his steady stream of new material, Thriftworks is quickly becoming known as one of the finest up and coming experimental producers with his outside the box sound and unclassifiable style. Thriftworks’ use of deep low-end and wall to wall synths seem to channel something ancient and mysterious, offering up an intoxicating musical high with an invigorating breath of fresh air. These sounds activate the senses, enrapture the mind, move the body and leave audiences begging for more.
A punk kid forged in the fires and mosh pits of 242 Main (rest in peace), Smarty McFly discovered electronic bass music when we he went away to college, and realized there was more to dancing than just slamming into each other. Although he still dresses like an emo kid, he loves DJing and producing bass-heavy beats and throwing wild parties. Expect a night of high-energy, genre-bending dance music – all he wants is to put a smile on your lips and a groove in your hips.
Chicago-based internet sensations Palmer Squares and ProbCause. Frat-rap superstar Wes Walker. Philadelphia R&B songstress Andrea Valle. What do all of these artists have in common? They boast productions from Remington Iron, a Vermont beatmaker who is quickly weaving a wide web of supporters and collaborators alike. His beats combine genre-hopping psychedelic sampling with his own signature synthesis and orchestration, all glued together by traditionally gritty East Coast hip-hop drums. Remi, as he is affectionately referred to by his fanbase in Burlington, takes his live shows to new heights by combining live beat performance with the sweet jazz stylings of improvised saxophone. Fans of jazz as well as dance music enthusiasts and hip hop heads will all find something to enjoy in the sonic patchwork and captivating atmospheres of Remington Iron and his music.
