    The Polish Ambassador

    Dance

    For the Polish Ambassador project, born on the richly-colored streets of Chicago and San Francisco, infectious melody is paramount. However, this never overshadows the depth and harmonic complexity that have made the Ambassador a favorite amongst festival curators and beat aficionados worldwide. Over the course of 6 years, his sound has dipped and swirled through a staggering range of styles, with each album exploring uncharted sonic territory. Warm, analogue dreamwave; mind-altering glitch; world-infused groove; bass-fueled breaks; sexified downtempo; electric lullabies; and psy-fi funk are just a few of the genres that have poured from the Ambassador’s soul into earbuds and ghetto-blasters across the galaxy.

    Despite the political connotations of his name, the Ambassador is not a political partisan. Rather, he is a diplomat for a new paradigm rooted in creative joy, radical self-expression, and ecological principles. As part of this mission, the Ambassador has committed to carbon-neutral touring, instigating exploratory dance, and igniting fan participation.

    Samples

    Dance

    Samples (aka Ben Samples), also known for his work in the live remix project Fresh2Death, is a producer and DJ based out of Denver. He creates and performs electronic dance music, including bass-heavy remixes of club and hip-hop favorites, original glitch-hop, soulful dubstep, funky house, and amalgamations of other styles. Starting his career as a DJ at a well-known Colorado radio station covering various styles and genres with a focus on dance music and hip-hop, Samples soon began creating his own hybrid of hip-hop and dance music into a club sound that fits as well in theaters and festivals as it does on dance floors.

    With a full-length album released on Made in Glitch Records, EPs supported by Daly City Records, Simplify Recordings, and True Movement, as well as tracks on Muti Music, Run Riot Records, Car Crash Set, Mambo Records, Old Tacoma Records, Global Vortex, and BomBeatz, Samples is one of the most sought-after producers and remix artists in the bass music scene, with collaborations including some of electronic music's most influential artists. Ranking near the top on charts on iTunes, Beatport, and Addictech, Samples has performed club, event, and festival dates all over the country, very often to audiences familiar with his music.

    "Ben Samples is one of the staples when throwing around names in the glitch-hop and mid-tempo genres of music" declared SubSynthesis in 2010. He continues to evolve a unique voice in electronic dance music with complexity and depth.

  • Elfkowitz

    Elfkowitz

    Dance

    Elfkowitz, better known as Ian Lefkowitz, is a Detroit native and has been producing music for the better part of a decade. At the age of 13, he started working in Detroit-based FBT Studios with Grammy-winning producers, The Bass Brothers (Eminem). Starting as a new age rock and hip-hop producer, he has learned what it takes to successfully produce music. Through high school, Elfkowitz continued to produce mostly hip-hop. Graduating from high-school in 2008, he proceeded to peruse music at Columbia College in Chicago. Becoming inspired by his short stay at Columbia, he moved back to Detroit to begin producing electronic music with longtime friend Freddy Todd. Elfkowitz jumped from genre to genre, slowly finding his true passion: bass.

    In 2009, Elfkowitz moved back to Chicago, and using his continually-expanding network, he has become a regular act on the Chicago scene. Now, his career has allowed him to play with such artists as Alex B, Marty Party, Murphy (STS9), Ghost Stepper (Lotus) and practically everyone in between. Using these experiences, he's now diving headfirst into the scene.
