    Words will inevitably fail to properly describe Freddy Todd. Genre-busting could be an understatement. You can't pin him down with lexicon like lazer-bass and glitch-funk; these phrases fall way short of capturing the expressiveness, fearlessness, and space-traveling qualities of his music. Hearing his music is akin to being abducted by an extra-terrestrial cruise liner where everyone is tripping on space acid. And if you are lucky enough to witness him produce, you'll see that he fittingly looks just like the captain of said space cruiser, both hands intently gripping his electronics like the instrument panel on the flight deck.

    Let's bring this back to earth real quick. His motown, soul, blues, jazz, funk, hiphop (and techno for that matter) roots are a given, being born just outside of Detroit in Southfield, MI in 1990. Freddy moved out of his parents house immediately upon turning 18 lusting for the world and the creative juices it has to offer, living briefly in Ferndale, MI at first, then to the outskirts of a rougher part of the city of Detroit near 7 mile and Lahser for two years to live with his then-band "Tone Poets", producing for Scrummage hip-hop queen "Breezee One", and wrapping up his second full length studio LP on Simplify Recordings, followed by a year in Chicago. After living in the midwest until the age of 22, his sights were set on the golden west. Moving cross-country and living two years in the Bay Area, living in both the hood of West Oakland followed by the Oakland Hills while writing and releasing the "Golden Tremendous" album and starting his next EP. After soaking up the Cali vibes, he returned across country for some more wholesome less-congested living in the blue ridge smokey mountains of Asheville, NC to be closer to family, where he currently resides.

    Freddy Todd is truly a master of his craft not only in the studio but on stages across the globe. Without any pre-recorded sets, Freddy has the skills and the audacity to perform on the fly mixes of 100% original material tailored to his specific audience, mood, and venue each night, be it a theater in northern California, a club in the back alleys of Detroit, or an outdoor festival in the bush off the eastern coast of Australia (occasionally on special nights with his live drummer forming the FT Live Band/Duo). His earth shattering, meticulously programmed beats & rhythms, his lazer crunk, funky psychedelic bass & sound design, and his brain tingling, intelligently soul-soaked synths, melodies, & field-recorded samples are sure to shake your consciousness as they blast through airwaves out of top notch sound systems across the universe while Freddy serenades you with 100% live & improvised get-your-booty-on-the-floor analog Moog synthesizers & keytar, loop triggering, and occasional drums & percussive elements. Be careful where you don't look.

    Alejo is the musical venture of Cincinnati native Alex Hinger. By using unique soundscapes layered with thick and driving rhythms, Alejo’s sounds intend to inspire listeners’ imaginations while taking them on a sonic journey through time and space. His most recent self-release, entitled 'Transitions', guides you perfectly on this journey being hailed similar to the likes of Andreilien & Tipper by The Untz. (https://goo.gl/KAeUzW)

    In the past year, Alejo has toured extensively coast to coast making some heavy weight appearances at some of the nations leading music festivals (Stilldream Music Festival in California, Infrasound Equinox Music Festival in Wisconsin, Bloomtown Music Festival in Minnesota, Resonance Music Festival in Ohio, Zen Awakening in Orlando, FL) and has had supporting performances for Eoto, Thriftworks, Dessert Dwellers, Sixis, Space Jesus, Spankalicious, Kalya Scintilla, kLL sMTH, G. Jones, Yheti, Bleep Bloop and more. Be sure to keep an ear to the ground for the release of his forthcoming full length album expected to be out at the end of 2017.

    Psydell (Josh Sidell) is a young producer out of the Midwest , who is blurring the lines between psychedelic soundscapes and heavy hitting bass music. With so much time and consideration being put into the carefully sculpted sound , it brings an essence of intelligence while still delivering the highest energy. 
    Over the past few years he has shared the stage with artists such as Tipper, Opiuo, Desert Dwellers, Mr. Bill, Papadosio, Haywyre, Spankalicious and many more. 
    With the release of his first EP, Overview in Jan. of 2015 , as well as numerous singles and remixes (one of which took first place in the Wildlight (Polish Ambassador) remix contest), this artist is pushing through the limitations of a single genre and propelling the weird bass scene forward , one drippy drop at a time.
