"Crystal Skies have been pumping out new music at a feverous pace over the last few weeks. The duo has just dropped the four track EP Dichotomy on the Trap Nations label Lowly Palace. With the Koven collab You Me & Gravity released last week, the Dark Ages EP last month, and more work slated to release soon, it is safe to say Crystal Skies is one of the hardest working artists out there today."
"In art the strong use of contrasts between light and dark is called chiaroscuro. It is an apt word to describe the music that Oregon electronic/post rock duo Death & Rebirth create. Their tracks are an exploration between the beautiful and the ugly, the gentle and the aggressive, essentially the light and the dark. Songs travel from ebbing waves of ambiance akin to Helios to epic passages of distorted guitars and thunderous drums like Cult of Luna. It is an engrossing and fascinating contrast that reflects the contrasts that are ever present in life."
Satellite Empire extends past music and breaches into modern folklore. The Metal/Electro duo sheds all preconceptions of what a band should be and what it should sound like. The sonic synergy of heavy guitars, orchestral passages and ethereal vocals places Satellite Empire in a league of its own.

Unbound to any particular genre, yet injecting whatever style he likes with colourful atmospheres, and the euphoria of his melodically vibrant piano - Miro is one of our founding members within New Dawn.
Creating music that puts you in different worlds, through a whole spectrum of ascendancy. Such as asian influences, to spacey atmospheres, to the feeling that you feel when you’re somewhat melancholy at 3:00 AM in the morning, all of this is entwined within the compass of Miro’s music.
"Pawel Szeligowski and Shayan Khodaei are the duo that make up Abandoned and for the last two years they have been producing incredible music. Not only have the two produced amazing originals but they are no strangers to creating breathtaking remixes."
While most people associate the name Ra with the Egyptian sun god, a wildly infectious 25 year old (also known as Ra) has become a force to be reckoned with in the southeast electronic nightlife.
Ra’s passion and diversity in music highlights the vision of his sound. After literally only a month of his first gig, Ra took over the Carolina dance scene and made a name for himself as one of the region's heaviest hitters. Shortly thereafter, he made his mark in the rest of the region and expanded his name from Atlanta to Charlotte, earning residencies with with 2 power house companies in each city: Sugar Society in Charlotte and Iris Presents in Atlanta.
By the end of his first year he was booked to perform at Iris's Imagine Festival in Atlanta and his performed there every since. He has also performed at legendary venues around the southeast like The Fillmore, Opera Nightclub, Terminal West, Chop Shop, Label, Lincoln Theater, New Mountain, and Music Farm. He has shared all these stages with likes of :
With an unmatched energy, unrivaled track selection, on-point mixing, and an absolutely maddening crowd reaction, it's no wonder Ra has been the talk of the southeast and only shows signs of progression in all aspects of his musical endeavors as he strives to find his sound in production.
"Exclusion is an artist who has been brought up with rock, metal and some of the world’s best composers. Now, he incorporates his rock and orchestral roots into his work.
Exclusion is comfortable mixing these three contrasting sound styles into a single piece, gaining heavy inspiration from the original artists and the likes of New Dawn. It’s no question that this young melodic bass entrepreneur has a few tricks up his sleeve and is here to stay!"

Dark, deep, and ethereal come to mind when listening to Oregon based producer Arkana. With a combination of thunderous basslines and screeching synths he has mastered the art of tactile sci-fi atmospheres.
