Muzzy Bearr
Muzzy Bearr
25-Year Old Dan Hacker is Muzzy Bearr, the multi-intrumental producer/DJ and vocalist hailing from Detroit, Michigan. First coming onto the scene at 17 as GRiZ’s guitar playing right hand man, the young cub quickly realized his love for crafting soulful hip-hop beats with trill tendencies and live instrumentation. Hacker’s 2015 debut record Vintage Sutra (released on All Good Records) was met with critical acclaim as he proved that he was much more than just a guitarist. Earmilk writes, “This album is a testament to the masterful song writing abilities and musicianship Muzzy possess and showcases his diverse sounds in one well packaged 6-track album.”

Following the release of Vintage Sutra, Muzzy Bearr hit the road supporting GRiZ on his near-entirely sold out spring and fall tours, with a stop at Red Rocks in between, all while working towards the full-length follow up. With his tasteful end-of-2015 release, “Call You Up (ft. K.B Starr), a collaboration with fellow Detroiter Ahh-Ooh Hacker yet again proved his versatility while showcasing a more concise sound that Nest HQ called “supernatural”. 2018 holds many expectations musically, as the young star hones in on his first full-length release and a handful of remixes and collaborations sure to deliver the flavor fans have come to expect.
Freddy Todd
Freddy Todd
Freddy Todd is a man a plan a canal panama. Mr. Palmer makes electronic music or dUbstep//GliTcH HoP//LazEr CrunK, if you wanna get fancy. When he was a lad, he grew up on the drum set and then moved to the piano/keys and guitar/bass. These combined skills offered his musical synergy to disperse in the elctronic scene. Making a genre of its own, Freddy Todd will go down in history as raunchy ba$$-beater and one of the most innovative of the internet music craze of the 2010's. He has three cats and a dog named Buddy and Harrison's pool. His EP's include Ghost Dance Messiah (2009), Hallowz Eve (2009), and iLLegaL summer 'stache (2010). Some are available for free download at http://freddytodd.bandcamp.com/
He also has two remix EP's titled Space 5 Penthouse: A Remix EP (2010), Can't Fathom This (2010).
Smoota
Smoota
How many licks does it take to get to the center of Smoota? He's not telling, but he welcomes you to find out. Most tales of love portray the first glance, the first laugh, the first kiss. But they trail off when the lights go out. Smoota sings love songs that tell the whole story — from first glance to first spank to last sigh. Nothing is out of bounds if it's true.

Smoota's music has been described as “hyper-sexed, sensual alt-soul grooves" (Time Out New York) and "an excellent example of how the libido sounds" (San Diego Reader).

Other Music in NYC praised Smoota's debut LP FETISHES (2013, Body To Body Records): “Combines the slinky DIY funk grooves of Shuggie Otis with the offbeat, trippy psychedelic stoner charm of James Pants, all topped off with a sly pervy streak that winks toward Serge Gainsbourg and the P-Funk mob….Smooth, laidback soul and funk that's slightly gritty at the edges; he's a skilled musician with the chops to pull this off."

Smoota plays with acclaimed art rock band TV on the Radio.

Smoota performed with Sufjan Stevens on his trombone-heavy Age of Adz tour (2010-11) and has played and/or recorded with Run The Jewels, Spoon, Miike Snow, Elvis Costello, El-P, Pretty Lights, Deer Tick, MNDR, Pharaoh Monche, Gordan Gano of the Violent Femmes, Akron/Family, Bebel Gilberto, Angelique Kidjo, The Bogmen, Red Baraat, Steve Arrington, Cee-Lo, Antibalas, Chin Chin and many others.

Smoota also played trombone and keyboards in Fela!, the Broadway musical directed by choreographer Bill T. Jones about the life of Nigerian Afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti. Halloween 2009, he joined Sharon Jones and members of the Dap-Kings to help Phish cover the Rolling Stones album Exile on Main Street, documented in the 2010 film Phish 3D. And in 2010, Smoota played trombone and acted in a stage opera version of Melvin Van Peebles' proto-blaxploitation flick Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song, directed by Van Peebles himself and featuring music from Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber, the cosmic freak soul group led by Greg Tate (co-founder of the Black Rock Coalition with Living Colour's Vernon Reid).

Smoota can usually be found on Monday nights playing at Union Pool in Williamsburg, Brooklyn with local dirty gospel R&B institution Rev. Vince Anderson and the Love Choir.

Smoota grew up near Boston and studied Film and Literature at Harvard University, where he made 16mm films under the tutelage of Yugoslavian maverick filmmaker Dusan Makavejev.
