Orchard Lounge
Orchard Lounge
Downtempo, space disco, house, tech, b-boy era electro, hip hop, soul, and funk â€" if you can move, Orchard Lounge will back you up. Formed in Chicago in 2000, OL is the collective of Ben Silver, Spencer Lokken and Bethany Lokken. This versatile trio has enlightened dance floors nationwide with their eclectic mixes, from sunset chill-out to bass-dropping tech house, and an array of other futuristic sounds. Theirs is a democratic mission: to expose as many people as possible to the artists they admire and respect. What sets Orchard Lounge apart from other club DJs is, well, you won't always find them in the club. In recent years they've built a reputation as a hard-touring festival act and set-break crowd favorite, frequently supporting The Disco Biscuits, Sound Tribe Sector 9, The New Deal and Future Rock. They've also played alongside heavyweights like Bonobo, Lindstrom, DJ T, Jamie Jones, Booka Shade, Metro Area, and Kevin Yost. As The Disco Biscuits' de facto hype men (and woman), they've had the rare pleasure of performing for thousands at world famous venues like Red Rocks and the Hammerstein Ballroom, constantly keeping the crowd engaged with a unique mix of turntable and live-band improvisation.

Outside the booth, the members of Orchard Lounge continue making music: Spencer is a classically-trained violinist and regularly plays with a trio in Chicago; Ben has studied guitar for more than ten years, and continues to write and produce. Bethany quit the clarinet in college and has never looked back. Despite their affinity for live music, OL's focus hasn't shifted since the group's inception almost a decade ago: to provide sophisticated and stylish DJ sets that are appropriate in a variety of settings, from the dancefloor to the couch.
Human Agency
Human Agency
Human Agency is the Denver-born duo of super best friends Biorhythm (Ryan Kjos) & Seamus McMorrow. Emerging alongside the very recent surge of gifted Colorado based beat acts, they cultivate organically sampled production and rhythms, while infusing them with a chemical twist. Using dance styles and instrumental performances, they are formless in style and pool listeners from many sounds. Playing live shows with drummer extraordinaire Jonas Otto, Human Agency aims toward a collaborative stage effort to create a mixed media spectacle. The live performance is everything, and The Agency seeks to constantly evolve their own.

Human Agency has shared the stage with world class artists such as EMANCIPATOR, BONOBO, SHPONGLE, RJD2, THE NEW DEAL, ORCHARD LOUNGE, BREAK SCIENCE, ZOOGMA, BOOMBOX, LITTLE PEOPLE, & FUTURE ROCK. Download Human Agency's music for FREE at http://humanagency.bandcamp.com/
