KEVIN GREENSPON

A touring veteran of fragmented scenes that stretch from Los Angeles into parts unknown and overlooked, Kevin Greenspon has performed hundreds of shows across the USA in venues ranging from art museums to abandoned naval bases.

Using multiple video projectors, tape machines and synth programs that react to each other, Greenspon’s live performances of contemplative ambient techno create an immersive audio-visual environment and ethereal atmosphere for self-reflection.

For the past decade, he has run the Bridgetown Records label, releasing albums of all genres for like-minded peers from the deep reaches of the underground each season.

“Greenspon elevates the practice of label-heading to a higher stratum by musically participating in his own scene — or, perhaps more accurately, serving as a shared focal point for dozens of loosely connected scenes across America. His exhaustive tour schedule, which tends to place him somewhere around the 100-shows-a-year benchmark, connects him with more nooks of the US underground on a regular basis than anyone should ever be able to keep track of in their brains. His tightly synced audio-visual sets, which time abstract visual expanses to the drifting layers of his synth-based compositions, have captivated normies and heads alike in an untold number of basement spaces or DIY living rooms.” - Maxwell Allison, Tiny Mix Tapes


J HAMILTON ISAACS

Denver based artist J Hamilton Isaacs has been making experimental music under the moniker dugoutcanoe since 2006. Modular synthesizers, Midi sequencing and sampling hardware are used to create meta-musical sound collage cacophonies to facilitate transcendental deep listening experiences. Drawing inspiration from works such as Steve Reich's Phase Music or the lush drones of Phil Niblock, to the relentless fury of Balinese gamelan; Isaacs creates original compositions that betray their foundational structure of decades steeped in the American DIY underground.

GARDENER

Under the name Gardener, Richmond, VA-based Dash Lewis uses a modular synthesizer, effects pedals, and his own voice to create intricately layered, rhythmically complex slabs of trance-inducing psychedelia deeply influenced by German kosmiche music of the 1970s, mid-career Beach Boys, and spiritual jazz. A frequent performer, Lewis has toured or shared the stage with The War on Drugs, Meg Mulhearn, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Fred Thomas, Benoit Pioulard, Jeff Zeigler, Mary Lattimore, Suuns, Brian Case (Disappears), Tashi Dorji, Mind Over Mirrors, and many more.
