Huerco S.
Huerco S.
Brian Leeds produces electronic music under the name Huerco S. His debut album for Software is titled Colonial Patterns. On Colonial Patterns, Leeds treats his Kansas City region as a universe worthy of its own electronic music.

To that end, Leeds deconstructs Midwestern techno and house tropes. The pieces are corrugated, rough, and decompositional. Working cheaply, Leeds conscientiously uses low-end software, synths and cassettes so as to subvert the gloss of so much urban dance music, giving tracks an impressionistic, emotive feel. The result is uniquely Midwestern: there is an expansiveness to each piece that suits the open space and the storied past of its inhabitants.

A native of Eastern Kansas, Brian Leeds first turned to music and visual art as a teenager. He attended the University of Kansas where he studied installation art and ceramics before leaving school to focus exclusively on sound design and music production. Recent releases include "No Jack," off the EP for Wicked Bass, and the twenty-minute synth exploration "Untitled" which Leeds cut in collaboration with Exael for Software's favorite Opal Tapes.

Colonial Patterns shares Jon Hassell's hybridized experiments in percussive ambience, as well as William Basinski's strobing melancholia. When tracks subtly veer into house/techno territories, they mirror the no frills dance mechanics of Midwest figureheads Ron Hardy, Omar S and Theo Parrish.
Octo Octa
Octo Octa
Brooklyn-based artist Maya Bouldry-Morrison has been releasing mainly house music as Octo Octa since 2011.
Dj Wey
Dj Wey
DJ Wey emerged on the Lover's Rock label in 2014 and has been dropping heat since then. This year he appeared on Entro Senestre's BANK Records NYC with an outstanding debut full EP and then reemerged as DJ Python on Anthony Naples Prohibito imprint. With such underground luminaries championing his sounds, you can see this is a very talented cat with a bright future ahead.
DJ Aakmael
DJ Aakmael
Being a true music head, DJ Aakmael is not your average DJ/Producer. The development of his style is the result of a lifetime of musical influence. Growing up in a talented musical family meant that he was always surrounded by different forms of music. His mother sang day and night, his father played in a local band and both had vast amounts of records. There were other members that held different positions in colleges and universities under the music teaching staff. It was Aakmael’s goal as a child to have as much music as his parents and eventually surpassed their record collection at a very early age.

A multi talented musician; Dj Aakmael started djing at the age of 16 and has played in clubs across the USA & did a 20 year radio stint WDCE 90.1fm. in Virginia. He has since released fantastic house jams on labels such as Bumping City Records, Earthrumental, Kolour, Unxpozd, People of Earth, Church, Unified Records, Cyberjamz, Uzuri and the list goes on and on!.
