Sinistarr (Urban Tribe, Tectonic, Metalheadz, Loose Squares, SMOG – Detroit, MI/San Diego, CA)
2013 is a constant year of change and exploration for Jeremy Howard, also known as Sinistarr. Starting out as a strictly Drum & Bass producer in Detroit, he gained a healthy catalog of releases and remixes on prestigious labels such as Metalheadz, Hospital Records, Project 51, Renegade Hardware, and many others, but in the past year (and a relocation to California) he has grown into new tempos and styles across the electronic music genre. Sinistarr’s debut excursion into this realm of footwork, jungle and every tempo above and below saw him reach out to an entirely new audience, with heavyweights such as Dabrye, Chrissy Murderbot, Salva, Pinch and Om Unit taking notice, and even landed him features on URB, Resident Advisor, Complex Magazine, and even a sample pack for Computer Music Magazine. Sinistarr has also contributed work for the seminal group Urban Tribe with DJ Stingray, Carl Craig, Moodymann and Anthony Shakir.
Music has become just a tempo of choosing for Sinistarr, as he continues to push forward into the future of electronic music.
Mister Shifter (Indirect Audio, Squared – Columbus, OH)
Jack Sheets, previously known as Shapeshifter and currently Mister Shifter, has played an integral role in the United States electronic music scene for over 15 years.
Starting in the late nineties, Jack helped elevate the Midwest drum & bass scene by hosting and performing at many popular events in the cities’ hottest night spots including Mekka, Glow, Red Zone, & Global Nightclub. Also making weekly rounds at large scale raves across the United States, Jack played alongside world class acts such as LTJ Bukem, Bad Company, John B, Goldie, & Dieselboy and cemented himself as a regional force in the stateside drum & bass scene.
In 2003, Jack and friend Mike Richards formed the drum & bass duo Random Movement. Their immediate rise to international acclaim was cemented with top-charting vinyl releases on paramount labels such as Breakbeat Science, Innerground Records, and highlighted by the classic “Stars in the Dark’ release on Ireland’s Bassbin Recordings.
Years later after moving on from his partnership in Random Movement, Jack began exploring sounds across the entire spectrum of electronic music. He continues to please crowds by showcasing music across a vast array of influences, from timeless classics to cutting-edge releases.
Mister Shifter’s unpredictable, high-energy performances always ensure you’re never hearing the same set twice, making him a crowd favorite and a must-see at every event.
Foi Oi Oi w/ What the Bleep –
A tag team duo hailing from Ohio, foi oi oi and What the Bleep are pushing the boundaries of bass music. “Ragga bass” is the most accurate label used to describe what they play – as they lean toward reggae-influenced bass-heavy styles – but they are not bound by any specific genre. Instead, their focus is on a positive bass music experience that reflects a junglist and dubwise mentality. Always maintaining an homage to the roots of mixing and selection, they are mix artists with an energetic chemistry behind the decks. As performers, they are adaptive, able to fit into the modern scene without losing sight of where bass music comes from or where bass music is going. With their ears aimed toward the future, their goal is to light up dancefloors with organic beats and positive vibes that get people smiling and dancing like it ain’t no thang. All of this is manifested with a diverse selection of jungle, drum & bass, juke, footwork, roots dubstep, halfstep, dub reggae, dancehall, instrumental hip hop, and bass music genres still yet undefined.
Since 2004 foi oi oi and What the Bleep have jointly attended Movement aka the Detroit Electronic Music Festival, spreading their music as`”brothers”. In honor of that tradition, they annually release the groundbreaking mixtape “Feelings for Detroit”, a mix widely-popular for it’s multiplicity of bass music sounds. The mix has become the duo’s most treasured creation, with 2012’s iteration Feelings for Detroit Vol. 6: Water Sound garnishing thousands of plays online, receiving a torrent of overwhelmingly positive reviews, and most notably receiving 3rd place in the RaggaJungle.biz “Top Mix of 2012” competition. With that success under their belt, 2013 has ushered in the release of Feelings for Detroit Vol. 7: Conquering Dandelion, the brand new and funky fresh edition of the series. With the Feelings for Detroit concept driving their musical persona, secretly known as “the foibleep experience”, the two have reached a new level of performance. The result is a live set that guides listeners, encouraging them to peer under the veil of the conventional music scene to reveal the uplifting potential and true feeling within music.
