Mr. Bill (Australia) (https://soundcloud.com/mrbillstunes)
The Mr. Bill project is based on evocation. Mr. Bill likes to write music that excites the ear and the bain. This requires him to explore a vast range of strange production methods and musical theories to keep exciting the senses. The best way to describe the music associated with this project is a mix of unlatched, glitchy breakbeats, heavy, swung-out bass lines and flawless edits with a large dash of palatable melodic content.
Freddy Todd (https://soundcloud.com/freddytodd)
Words will inevitably fail to properly describe Freddy Todd. Genre-busting could be an understatement. You can't pin him down with lexicon like lazer-bass and glitch-funk; these phrases fall way short of capturing the expressiveness, fearlessness, and space-traveling qualities of his music. Hearing his music is akin to being abducted by an extra-terrestrial cruise liner where everyone is tripping on space acid. And if you are lucky enough to witness him produce, you'll see that he fittingly looks just like the captain of said space cruiser, both hands intently gripping his electronics like the instrument panel on the flight deck.
Based out of Detroit, Freddy Todd is truly a master of his craft not only in the studio but on stages across the globe. Without any pre-recorded sets, Freddy has the skills and the audacity to perform on the fly mixes of 100% original material tailored to his specific audience, mood, and venue each night, be it a theater in northern California, a club in the back alleys of Detroit, or an outdoor festival in the bush off the eastern coast of Australia (occasionally on special nights with his live drummer, ill.so.naj). His earth shattering, meticulously programmed beats and rhythms, his lazer crunk, funky psychedelic bass and sound design, and his brain tingling, intelligently soul-soaked synths, melodies, and field-recorded samples are sure to shake your consciousness as they blast through airwaves out of top notch sound systems across the universe.
Duffrey is an electronic music producer with a insatiable hunger for brain tickling soundscapes and funky bass. Woody Klann, a musician from a young age, has been squeezing sounds from his environment since he can remember. Duffrey experiments with many genres including Midtempo, Wonky Bass, Dub, Breaks, and Drum and Bass and the result is a full spectrum psychedelic sonic exploration. Duffrey’s goal is to convert brainwaves into tangible energy that takes control of your body and leaves you tingling.

clætron is the new moniker for the DJ, Clayton Colwell. His 'sound' is the fruit of a decade-plus years experience as a musician/dj/partygoer, infused with a sensibly broad taste. What follows is a dynamic, genre bending flow and a penchant for boogie-downs that simmer and boil onstage alongside artists such as The Hood Internet, VibeSquaD, Heyoka, Mochipet, Stylust Beats, Bass Science, Guttstar, Nalepa, Ghislan Poirier, The Blue Scholars, Filastine, Sporeganic, Dirty Disco Kidz and perpetuate a deep list of dance/club nights. As clætron emerges from the ether, a conduit has been activated, enabling participation and sensory awakening for all within earshot.
