Second up in our teaser series: The MOOOON. This stage features enough glitch and bass to make us question if we really are cogs in the matrix. Come August, we’ll definitely be a part of a whole under the wobbly Moon.

 

Machinedrum

To experience Machinedrum is to experience a masterfully crafted foray into jungle, beat, glitch, footwork, and drum & bass all at once. Travis Stewart has spent the better part of 20 years playing around all sides of the industry and his sound certainly shows it.

 

Thriftworks

Berkeley’s Jake Atlas, or Thriftworks, is one of the most industrious producers in the downtempo dubstep and glitch scene. Since 2010, he’s put out 14 LPs and EPs totalling over 150 tracks. And that’s just stuff released. His sets are uniquely paced and well worth the time.

 

CloZee

The worldly elements that French native CloZee adds to her glitch foundation helps create a unique soundscape: a blend of organic nomadic sounds and the hiccupyy roughness of electronica. Together it creates a tonality by which to easily get lost in.

 

Tsuruda

Having been born directly into music, Tsuruda has developed a deep understanding of theory. He ventures into experimental beats and bass to create an amalgamation of sound that is purposefully discordant yet jazzy and romantic.

 

EPROM

Eprom really needs no introduction. He’s had a steady rise through the music ranks since 2007. His bassy sound has evolved alongside him, never losing its frenetic nature, but rather always growing in the complexity and depths of glitch and drum & bass.

 

Huxley Anne

Rising LA star Huxley Anne has been spending much of her 2017 in the LA beat scene mastering her own unique style of moody, scratchy beats. The eeriness of it has a mysterious appeal that’s best seen live.

 

K+Lab

A dash of funk on top of layers of Drum & Bass and the makings of K+Lab are clearly evident. You can be sure his set will be a dance party will all the right amounts of whimsy.

Part funk, part glitch, part indie, all groovy. Hailing from Oslo, Norway this Scandinavian electronica duo is sure to be one of the more upbeat and memorable performances in the desert. Lemaitre (pronounced lem-my-tray) consists of former classmates Ketil Jansen and Ulrik Denizou Lund and boy do these two know their synths. Fusing traditional instruments and original synth melodies seamlessly, every Lemaitre production is carefully crafted and proportioned perfectly.

 

 

The viking duo’s 2016 is already off to a massive start with the release of their EP earlier this year 1749. Sonically, this release has a heavy use of piano and takes a few cues from neo-French touch music in the same vain as Breakbot or SebastiAn. Their live set is not one to miss. See you out there at the Polo Club.

Backed by a storied history, OPIUO could play LIB by himself and the world would still be better for it. Yet, ever the one to one-up himself, he’s come into 2015 with an ambitious endeavour that seems to be paying off extremely well so far. His new setup features The Opiuo Band (a full live ensemble) and revamped lighting which promises an exceptionally stunning experience of all things art and music.

 

So far, he’s been journeying across Australia with this new project. He’s making his way stateside for LIB. Check the vid below to hear why he’s brought the gang together. See you there in the midst of the magic.
