  • Philadelphia electronic pop duo Marian Hill return with a pair of new tracks - "Got It" and "Lips" - that demonstrate two very different sides of their ever-maturing craft.

    Comprised of Jeremy Lloyd (production/songwriting) and Samantha Gongol (vocals/songwriting), the pair’s roots can be traced back as far as a middle school talent show that saw Lloyd - the son of a conductor and an opera singer - hear Gongol sing for the first time. Many a moon down the line, following a stint studying music composition at college for Lloyd while Gongol was cutting her teeth in New York as a songwriter, the pair reunited in the former’s bedroom studio.

    "Got It" and "Lips", the latest offerings from the duo, might be the finest syntheses of their output to date. Working under a modus operandi to fuse the simplicity of timeless songwriting with the dexterous craft of modern pop production, "Got It" finds itself in the middle of a head-on collision between sultry soul and whirring synth brass. "Lips", meanwhile, goes straight for the romantic jugular - flitting between emotive electronica and jittery, after-hours RnB.

    Citing influences ranging from Cole Porter to Kanye, from Ella Fitzgerald to Drake, while many artists define themselves by the mixture of inspirations they’ve concocted, Marian Hill go one step further: fusing disparate sources into a compound sound that’s hard to imagine ever having been apart.

    Marian Hill is joined live by bassist and saxophonist Steve Davit.

  • Hailing from Reykjavík, Iceland, Apparat Organ Quartet is a band that sometimes describe their music as "Machine Rock and Roll", and indeed the band's sound veers between pulsing floor-fillers and headbanging anthems, served with a mixture of Kraftwerk-inspired electronics, Daft Punk-like robot voices, and hard rock beats. The almost surreal melodies seem to be derived equally from medieval Gregorian chant, American cartoons and Russian Romantic music of the 19th century.

  • Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches.

    Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!

  • DJ NaNa believes that the art of Turntablism is a science. The same precision and dedication scientists put into research and experiments, is what NaNa is known for putting into his own artform. His influences range from the common (Wu Tang Clan, Outkast, A Tribe Called Quest, Jay-Z). to the not so obvious (Zamfir, Portishead, Lamb, Fleetwood Mac), and everything else in between. A true music connoisseur, his knowledge of diverse genres of music is almost as impressive as his knack for combining them.
