Octo Octa in the Bad Room
It shouldn't be surprising that Brooklyn-based producer Octo Octa (née Maya Bouldry-Morrison) had already logged tireless years as a fringe IDM artist and sound designer before her debut EP Let Me See You lasso'd a mighty wave of international house-heads to the dance-floor and helped push underground house label 100% Silk onto everyone's radar in 2011. Seven records later, which include a misty deep-house slow-burner in the Where Did You Go/Through The Haze 12" for Chicago-based, Smartbar DJ Steve Mizek's Argot imprint and the soaringly luxurious More Times EP for German powerhouse Running Back, Bouldry-Morrison's finely-tuned marriage of exquisite compositional flare, meticulously-sculpted sonics, and primal dance-floor functionality has earned her a a Red Bull Music Academy residency in Manhattan, which found the producer working closely with Harald Bjork and Throwing Snow, as well as tours across the world that included coveted gigs at Berlin's Panorama Bar, Frankfurt's Live At Robert Johnson, and Barcelona's Sonar Festival.

Fresh off of having SPIN Magazine herald percussive floor-burner "Cause I Love You" as one of the 50 Best Dance Songs Of 2014, Octo Octa currently has forthcomiing coming 12"s prepped for DeepBlak and Stay Underground It Pays and is preparing for another year of pushing her unique sonic perspective and shimmering club-ready earworms through soundsystems across the world.
Jonas Reinhardt
Jonas Reinhardt
Jonas Reinhardt is the nom de musique of San Francisco-based electronic artist Jesse Reiner, who looks to the analog sounds, organic atmospheres, and hypnotic rhythms of '70s pioneers such as Jean Michel Jarre, Klaus Schulze, and Tangerine Dream for inspiration. Though he played other kinds of music before performing and recording as Jonas Reinhardt, Reiner always listened to electronic music of the late '60s and '70s, and got a Moog Realistic Concertmate MG-1 in the mid-'90s. A few years later, he studied music synthesis at the Harvard Electronic Music Center and maintained an interest in this approach to music-making while he played with other bands. Reiner began using the Reinhardt moniker for his self-titled 2008 Kranky debut; an iTunes EP, Modern by Nature's Reward, followed. Jonas Reinhardt eventually expanded into a full-fledged band, with Trans Am's Phil Manley on guitars, Mi Ami's Damon Palermo on drums, and Citay's Diego Gonzalez on bass. This lineup recorded Powers of Audition, which appeared in 2010 and married the meticulous sound of Reiner's earlier work with live instrumentation.
