Totem
Totem
Totem is the solo project of Boulder based producer, Phoenix Clay Michael. Phoenix has been playing eastern-style instrumentation for over a decade(tabla, doumbek, darbuki, didgeridoo, ric, etc), while also exploring digital synthesis and sound design. Totem culminates these two passions into a modern interpretation of ancient instruments. The sampling style is deep and visceral. Blending sequences of thick bass and instrumentation with live production. Live production includes: Didgeridoo, vocals, synth, keyboard, percussion, and bass. Phoenix's debut album with the project is titled, The Bonfire of Life, and was written and Totem/motion of solidarity with the native tribes of North America. Totem sees the immense potency that dance has for healing in our culture, and also sees the reverent nature of ancient and native style music. The ultimate thrill is fusing these two things into a continuous musical experience shared amongst listener and maker. Totem is humbled to bring thy dance medication.
Alais Clay
Alais Clay
Born in Barranquilla, Colombia in 1985 and raised in Miami, Florida, Alais Clay brings an extremely unique voice to hip-hop that you would not expect from the sweet, soft-spoken soul you meet in person. One needs only to listen to a few songs before realizing that Alais focuses on the socio/political and she is not afraid to speak her mind. A poet since she could hold a pencil, Alais states “I never thought I would be a singer.. much less a rapper, but I needed a wayto talk to people on a mass scale about these issues and I figured if people will listen to the retarded sh*t they play on the radio just because they have catchy beats, then maybe if I use similar beats theywill listen to a more positive, important message.”
