THE FLOOZIES
THE FLOOZIES
Just outside the jazz mecca of Kansas City springs liberal oasis Lawrence, Kansas -- separated only by the waves of wheat from the epicenter of the electronic music revolution in Colorado. From Lawrence, it would logically follow that an act could rise to prominence fueled by the swing of Basie, the birth of Charlie Parker's bebop, and the wild frontier of electronica. Born in funk and bred in the digital age, live electronic duo The Floozies have burst onto the scene at a time when the industry needed them the most.

Brothers Matt and Mark Hill share the stage just as easily as they share a musical brain. Without a setlist, and without a word between them, Matt's guitar is in lockstep with the thud of Mark's kick. Endless looping and production builds the raw scenery upon which palm muted chugs, searing solos, and wobbling bass paint their dazzling array of colors.

Well versed in everything from Chris Cornell to Kavinsky, the sonic vision shared by the brothers eschews contemporary electronic influences in favor of broader, deeper tastes including Zapp & Roger, Lettuce, and Amon Tobin. That wide-angle view of a century of popular music allows the Hills to remix Toto and The Dead -- in the music you can hear reverence for the giants of the past, all the while producing wildly futuristic tunes for the masses to dig now.

When the pendulum swung as far as it could away from live instrumentation to laptops, The Floozies rose up to the challenge, swinging as hard as they could in the other direction with neck-snapping, knee-breaking funk so dirty that the gatekeepers stood up, wiped themselves off, and took notice. A bold live show full of sonic exploration and unbreakably deep pocket grooves has landed the brothers on stage with luminaries of the jam world Umphrey's McGee as readily as electronic elites STS9 and Big Gigantic. Sold out shows across the Country, huge festival appearances at Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, High Sierra, Summercamp, Wakarusa, Camp Bisco, Summerset, Bumbershoot, and a sold out Red Rocks show with Griz have continued to cement the duo's ascent.

The Floozies are bringing the funk back, and they're right on time.
Sodown
Sodown
Ehren River Wright, aka SoDown, is a staple in the Colorado music scene. His first headline show was a huge success, selling out before doors. Thanks to a passionate fanbase, Ehren has quickly taken his music to a national stage, playing many festivals across the US. A SoDown set is not one to miss. Featuring live saxophone, Ehren takes the crowd on an intimate sensory adventure through space and time. His latest tracks include a wide array of musical talents, including his keen ear for sound design and production as well as his never ending dedication to organic instrumentation. Combining infinite influences, Ehren describes his music as an endlessly evolving medley of many different genres, culminating in a uniquely diverse style of bass music. 2018 has much promise, as SoDown continues to prove himself as one of the most dedicated and innovative acts in the game.
Birocratic
Birocratic
Brandon Rowan, aka Birocratic, is a 24-year-old producer and multi-instrumentalist hailing from central New Jersey. After playing in & recording friends’ bands in high school, a decidedly non-traditional career path over the past five years has taken him directly into the heart of Brooklyn as a key player in the emerging local underground hip-hop / electronic scene. His penchant for combining of heady, jazzy sample chops, melodic bass lines, and vibrant drums proves instantly recognizable. With some key collaborators like the streaming phenomenon Chillhop Records, as well as Atlantic’s Big Beat imprint, Birocratic has become a staple of instrumental hip-hop and the thriving online beat-scene writ large.

As a teen learning production at NYU’s Clive Davis Institute, Rowan first released a series of short dorm-room beat-tapes via Soundcloud and Bandcamp; these quickly found their way to virally nascent YouTube channels (e.g., BuzzFeed, Casey Neistat) in a landscape that was, at the time, fairly barren; these placements quickly helped Rowan reach tens of millions of ears while enabling him to build a career around the growing opportunities for licensing his unique tunes online.

Throughout these years, Biro has remained committed to independently releasing his music, a strategy that has proven quite successful—recently enabling him to forgo his side job of serving tables in order to pursue music full-time (a lifelong dream of his). Alongside his numerous releases—clocking in at four beat-tapes in the Beets series, two Leftovers tapes, and an experimental jazz EP called Replaced—Biro has seen extensive time on stage at many premiere Brooklyn venues, including providing direct support for Mndsgn to a sold-out crowd at Baby’s All Right. His many live appearances (complete with live bass guitar, keyboards, and finger drumming) in NYC have afforded him a bird’s-eye view of the landscape as he signs with Rogue Agency and readies himself to tour North America in 2018.
