Nasty Factorz (NYC)
Nasty Factorz rocks a totally unique fusion of heavy bass music and contemporary jazz. Cinematic landscapes, mathematical grooves, lyrical melodies, furious breaks and rough basslines are the components of this new beat from the “avant-garde” of Paris and New York.
Air is Human (PHL)
Air is Human is a group from Philadelphia, comprised of Josh Aptner and Jeff Lucci. The duo formed in late 2011 and finished their debut EP “The Infinity Limit” by 2012. In 2015, four EPs were released in sequence with the changing of seasons; on each equinox and solstice. Air is Human create their unique sound by drawing from an eclectic combination of influences, including bands like Radiohead, Boards of Canada, The Mars Volta, and Talk Talk. Their live sound is intense, with layered Rhodes and guitars set against driving, and sometimes dance like percussion. They think Nelson Cline is kind of a hack.
