  • Klaus Johann Grobe

    Klaus Johann Grobe

    Post-Disco

    Perhaps one can say that freethinker of the disco throw melancholic slogans on the dance floor. Or a synthesizer organ,drums and a bass try to say what many don’t understand. Or poetry before prose. Or dance before music. Or the things of yesterday in the spirit of tomorrow. Or everything’s contrary.
    Everything is Klaus Johann Grobe. Everything is duo. Everything is modern. And everything is now.

  • Vinyl Williams

    Vinyl Williams

    Sunshine Pop

    The rare history of harmonious pop music imbued in Vinyl Williams's world is finally coming to the conscious surface in the warped form of a celestial hyper-coaster, combining sunshine pop, afrobeat, and progressive rock into a dense emanation of sonic optics.  The California native has attuned his sound palette to the cosmic quintessence – opalescent tones that harmonize chaos, synchronizing a global family of celestial harmonies into a macrocosmic epicenter.

    Williams's approach to music is almost purely aesthetic, arranging ecstatically ornate patterns that juxtapose the electric guitar chords with the bass line in rapturously risky variations.  Without a doubt, it's not your average psychedelic pop music.  It doesn't veil simple campfire chords with spring & fuzz.  It's more like stretched-out jazz for the layman, allowing one to be aware of its changes without them passing by you unconsciously.

    Williams also creates his own immersive realms in the form of 360º videos, downloadable explorable worlds, and interactive web art. These ineffable environments impress upon transcendental incorporeal states of being around the center star of Orion – Alnilam.

    Before meeting Iasos (founder of New Age music) in 2013, Williams already had an out-of-body experience where he visited this syncretic haven.  During their conversation, Iasos revealed a similar experience that had occurred where an ineffable intelligence "Vesta" sent endless hours of higher dimensional footage into his mind in an instant.  The process hence has been a process of discovering how these visual architectural & sonic atmospheric forms can be concentrated in a pop structure.  The main ambition of the group is to transmute qualitative opposites into an equilibrium of light & sound, that ultimately has a beneficial affect for the audience.

    Active since 2007, the group have toured extensively with Toro y Moi, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Mount Kimbie, This Will Destroy You, Temples, among others.
