Eliot Lipp
Eliot Lipp
Eliot Lipp didn't choose to become one of the most looked to artists in contemporary electronic music, but somehow, Lipp's sound, one that uses vintage gear to create a unique take on Hip Hop and House, has quickly garnered the respect among the industry's most influential musicians and producers as well as the deep admiration among audiences worldwide.

Since being discovered by Scott Herren (aka Prefuse 73) in the mid 2000's, and releasing albums on the cutting edge labels Eastern Developments, Mush and Hefty as well as backing the hype with a relentless touring schedule of influential live shows all over the globe, Lipp has quickly become one of the barometers for the revival of electronic music in the States.

Originally hailing from Tacoma, WA, Lipp paid his dues in the underground scenes of almost every primary market in the US, Europe and Asia, including stints in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago before dropping roots in the Brooklyn scene that has continued to produce some of the most recognized artists in contemporary indie and electronic music.

Lipp's signature sound, a crossbreed of 90's Hip Hop and House, 70's Funk fusion as well as classic Electro, has and will continue to breakdown barriers and transpose trendy scenes. Whether programming Hip Hop beats, writing dirty basslines, collaborating with the likes of premier producers, DJs, MCs and musicians, examined by SPIN, URB, Pitchfork and other media or playing popping parties at clubs and festivals worldwide, Eliot Lipp will continue to do his part in revolutionizing electronic music.
Ana Sia
Ana Sia
AAna Sia’s DJ crate is a ticker for the hottest sounds of tomorrow. One of the west coast’s most celebrated DJs, this SF Bay Area-based tastemaker is known for not only energizing the dance floor, but consistently breaking new sounds from all over the world. Having championed some of the most beloved music festivals in the US, Canada and abroad, Ana Sia has gone from rocking house parties to stadiums by stylistically staying two steps ahead of the game. From huge festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Detroit Electronic Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnival and others, and an array of clubs and venues spanning every major city, countless college towns and hot spots everywhere, Ana Sia has built a community just as fun, wild and eclectic as her style. She has shared the stage with a growing list of artists ranging all styles of electronic dance music, from Diplo to Deadmau5, Datsik to Daedelus...and everybody in between. Ana Sia jumped off 2012 on NYE in Queenstown, New Zealand, as she continues her conquering of sound systems across the globe. Shortly before, she unleashed her first full length contribution, a well-regarded compilation and DJ-mix titled ‘Surreal Estate’ on Frite Nite, her quickly-rising Cali-based label and crew. A testament to her forward-thinking style, ‘Surreal Estate’ was featured in music publications such as Resident Advisor, Pitchfork, XLR8R, Sonic Router and more, touted as leading the way with the brightest production minds in North American dance music. Coupled with her growing production catalog and high-profile collaborations under way, Ana Sia looks to make her mark on recorded music as well as the stage. In the meantime, she’ll keep crowds enticed -- keeping speakers pumping with big, bass-driven, intelligent and sexy music...deep enough for the cabaret and filthy enough for the festival stage.

Mike Pinto
Mike Pinto
For the last eight years, Mike Pinto has crafted an exceptional style of songwriting, with truly unique rhymes that raise the bar in today's music. Pinto's sound blends Reggae, Ska, Surf, and even Latin rhythms, but it's his distinct voice and seamless storytelling that has brought him success in the U.S. and abroad. With his first full-length album, Little District (2005), Mike combined his lyrical vision with full horn sections, organs, heavy bass lines, samples, and hip-hop beats.
With the release of his debut album, Mike began his attack of the Philadelphia music scene as a solo artist. By 2006, immediate underground success allowed him to expand, playing clubs, colleges, radio stations and festivals throughout the East Coast. Mike then tried his luck westward, with two nation-wide solo acoustic tours playing in 20 US Cities.
After the second tour, Mike Pinto decided to relocate to Ocean Beach, San Diego, where he immersed himself in the thriving SoCal music scene. He assembled a band to help fully conceptualize his work and continued writing what would soon become his self-titled second album. Over this time, he played upwards of 150 shows, and gained experience as he promoted not only his own shows but also those of other local musicians throughout Southern California. Horn players from the band Slightly Stoopid and John Brown's Body have backed his act. His single "One More Time" was also featured on San Diego Sound Scope, a compilation of which 20,000 copies were produced and distributed by Insomnia Radio in an effort to encourage tourism in the San Diego area.
Mike's music quickly traveled out of the states throughout Japan, Guam, and Hawaii. Mike became part of a compilation in Japan for One Big Family Records. He was flown out to Guam, where he played on three radio stations and sold out two shows. Recently, he visited Oahu, the Big Island and Maui, packing small clubs which he promoted on local radio stations.
In November of 2007, Mike Pinto released his self-titled album, collaborating with legendary drummer Chuck Treece (G Love, Bad Brains, McRad). The new album was featured on Itunes reggae page and CdBaby, and has started a cult following worldwide. With over 1000 myspace hits a day, the sophomore disc is already proof that the first album was no fluke, and that it won't be long before Mike Pinto emerges from today's underground music scene.
