A nod to the multiverse-inspired concept of “extraordinary magnitude,” Exmag interprets soulful sounds of the future through bouncy space-funk poised to take flight. Informed by climbing synth melodies and effected strings, ExMag music boasts pronounced hip-hop atmospherics complementing its journey-inducing groove arrangements.
Jaw Gems, an electronic outfit from Portland, Maine, is a collective of young, experimental producers bringing beat-music – traditionally programmed and played on samplers – to a live band setting. The mesmerizing result is a harmonic convergence.
Combine legendary beat-makers like J Dilla and Flying Lotus with indie rock and electronic icons like Deerhunter and Washed Out, then add Radiohead’s dreamy ambience and you begin to approach the sound of Jaw Gems. Electronic musician, Daedelus says “Jaw Gems have done the magic trick of delivering a thoroughly listenable instrumental album that you can also sing along to.”
Two lanky blondes with a knack for rhythm and trance. Moon Daddies features Paddy Donnelly live looping synths/bass and Kurt Sommer on electronic/analog drum production. The duo will pay homage to the roots of electronic dance music while exploring its boundaries.
