Andreilien (Formerly Heyoka)
Andreilien (Formerly Heyoka)
Far far away in deep auditory space, Heyoka has been abducted, cosmically mind probed, upgraded and reconfigured in an extra terestrial lab on a planet known as Marklar. Fortunately he has returned almost entirely unharmed, and now shall be known as the artist currently know as Andreilien…

Andrei Olenev first emerged as HEYOKA on the San Francisco underground glitch/bass scene in 2006. By 2009 he
was touring extensively and quickly became a staple sound in the rapidly growing bass music scene of North America. With a constantly evolving, original style, he stood out amongst bass music producers as one who keeps the vibe going strong while venturing to explore new realms of sonic experience. Playing always live sets of his own original tracks, his music has been described as a journey through fractal soundscapes and alternate realms while riding the waves of fat glitch beats and earth rumbling sub bass.

Andrei has brought his signature sound to North American festivals including: Symbiosis, Sonic Bloom, Raindance, Lightning in a bottle, Big Bounce, Alchemeyez, and large Burning Man sound camps such as Nexus, El circo, Temple of Boom, Entheon Village, Roots Society and Fractal Nation. He has also played several international electronic music festivals such as Shambhala (Canada), Boom (Portugal), Earthfreq and Winter solstice (Australia), and Luminate (New Zealand). He frequently tours nightclubs and concert venues through the States and Canada, as well as internationally in Australia, New Zealand and Russia.

As Heyoka, Andrei released his first ep in 2008, and by 2011 had produced over six albums through San Francisco’s Muti Music, a leader in the glitch hop and bass music scene. In “Dub Iteration,” Andrei’s newest album and first official release as Andreilien, he revisits the dubby vibe of some of the earlier Heyoka releases with a newer fatter twist.

Further expanding artistic horizons, Andrei has been continually working to develop a multimedia project with original Visionary and 3D art to create full sensory fractal journey in a dimension of its own.

So, for a sonic journey so thick you can smell it, keep listening to signals from beyond for Andreilien playing in a noosphere near you…

Jimkata
Jimkata
Jimkata’s innovative, fan-funded record Die Digital turned heads of critics, musicians and fans when it dropped late in the Fall of 2012, solidifying the band’s reputation as a forward-thinking artist to pay attention to. Having been a mainstay of the Northeast “jam circuit” for years, Jimkata’s refined “electro rock” sound– one of a band that has found it’s voice after years of experimentation– is in many ways more “indie rock” than jam, more 90′s dance than EDM, more lyrical than instrumental, yet the band manages to keep the jam, EDM and technically advanced instrumental elements intact as it carves out a new path for themselves and many of their peers who were inspired by Die Digital. Jimkata’s relevant, quotable lyrics create moods not just for the fleeting moments, but for the lifestyle of an entire generation, and the sum of the music and songwriting appeals to fans of artists like MGMT, LCD Soundsystem, Talking Heads and the best of the ’90′s pop-rock world. A staple of the festival circuit from the Rockies to the Atlantic, Jimkata’s 2013 festival schedule includes heavy hitters like Summer Camp (Chillicothe, IL) and Gathering of The Vibes (Bridgeport, CT) amongst the strong regional events that fuel an artist’s growth.
Ableminds
Ableminds
Ableminds is the creation of Jordan Linit and Charles Parker Mertens. Combining Dirty Beats and Live Looping with ripping synths, Filthy Basslines, and heavenly guitar, performed by two instrumentalist's/DJ's. This project truly integrates the party atmosphere of a DJ w/ the excitement of a live band that can improvise and make each performance unique. This music is "sure to make your ass shake". It is a combination of their love of composing, performing, and producing bass heavy, dance laden BEATS.

The Duo has been in the studio on and off for a year shaping their sound and working on their debut album scheduled for release in the Summer of 2011. With the album nearing completion, Ableminds has focused on incorporating live looping/improvisation with the original beats created by these 2 Colorado producers.

On stage Charlie and Jordan perform (and loop) guitars, basses, and many synthesizers, while at the same time DJ both original tracks and audio created on the fly. This dual DJ/ Live band is sure to make you think about what an "Electronic Band" should be.

Hailed by over 1,000,000 YouTube viewers as "The Godfather of Controllerism", Moldover is a new breed of music icon. Combining the charisma of a rock star, the mad genius of a basement inventor, and the radical inclusiveness of the DIY internet generation, Moldover is "literally throwing away the rule book and reinventing the wheel" (Remix Magazine). Witness his balls-to-the-wall live show at a club, experience one of his jambox multiplayer instruments at a festival, or pick up and play the "light theremin" packaging of his debut album and understand why the next paradigm for music is a one-man-brand called Moldover.
