Fax Gang is an experimental hip-hop and cloud rap group that primarily gained success from the release of their debut EP “FxG3000'' and album “Aethernet.” They have also released a collaborative EP, “Fractalize”, with SoundCloud scene mainstay blackwinterwells. The group’s sound became highly influential in the underground HexD movement with their clever and detailed usage of bitcrush. The group’s roster spans three continents, and is currently comprised of sole vocalist and performer PK Shellboy (Philippines), who is navigated through corroded neon soundscapes by producers GLACIERbaby (U.S.A.) and maknaeslayer (U.K.). Renowned for their music’s atmosphere and energy because of, not in spite of, its low fidelity; Fax Gang blazes through arrangements of digital chaos with spirited fervor.
Hailing from the small town of Waterlooville in southern England, Naked Flames conjures up memories of dubby techno and house soundtracks from forgotten video games that never existed. Heavily inspired by legendary acts such as Basic Channel and Porter Ricks, coupled with Gamecube-era VGM gems, hypnotic and catchy tracks are laid out dripping with bittersweet nostalgia using whatever old software and samples are at his disposal.
Toronto-raised artist bliss3three has an undeniable talent for creating lush atmospheres, teeming with texture and depth. Inspired by entities such as the weather and surrealism, bliss3three uses intentionally hazy and unpolished sounds to help portray the ethereal themes that exist in their dreams. In a short period of time the artist has proven to be one of the largest and most unrelenting new names in the current landscape of underground electronic music.
City Light Mosaic is the alias of Tony Sanzone, an eclectic genre-bending musician from Boston, MA. His style blends modulated vocals on top of heavily atmospheric instrumentals ranging from punishing Techno and Free Jazz, to Ambient Soundscapes and warm Deep House. By means of paying homage to the musicians that influence him like Traumprinz, 2814, and Drake, as well as film directors like Wong Kar Wai, Tsai Ming-Liang, and Andrei Tarkovsky, Tony’s music serves both as a soundtrack for urban landscapes, and as a log of his emotions and outlook on the world. City Light Mosaic is the owner and leader of the underground experimental music label No Agreements.
