Wild International
Wild International
Wild International was formed in May 2009 on Long Island, New York by high school friends Ryan Camenzuli, Greg Coffey, Bryan Daly. The three friends started playing music together in their practice space, experimenting and
tinkering with guitars, bass and various percussion instruments. Ultimately relying on a foundation of bass, drums and guitar, Wild International layers polyrhythmic beats, vocal harmonies and experimental noises to create their full and textured sound. The band recently put the finishing touches on Lake Tones, their new 6-song EP slated for a December 18th release date.

In their first year as a band, Wild International played shows around Long Island and released their first self-titled EP. 2010 marked the time where the band decided to leave Long Island and move to New York City to submerge themselves in the diversity of the music scene there. Flash forward to 2011, the band started writing and recording the music that would ultimately become Lake Tones. With the new batch of songs, the band incorporated the natural elements that worked from the first EP, but built upon that foundation by using sampling and effects processing to evolve their sound into something that straddles the line between the electronic and the organic, with parts of the EP rippling melody while other parts tapping their more primordial side. The result is a ride that is free-flowing, yet somehow structured within the constraints of an EP.

In their time as a band, Wild International has shared the stage with bands such as Prince Rama, Dana Buoy (of Akron/Family), Mykki Blanco, The Death Set, The Elwins and also played the 2010 Bamboozle festival. The band will be playing the New York City area in October, and are planning additional shows supporting the release later in the year and in early 2013.
Jamaican Queens
Jamaican Queens
A band from Detroit that loves having fun. Ryan and Adam are the Jamaican Queens masters.
Ludwig Persik
"Ludwig Persik grew up on the LES surrounded by the CBGB punk scene, and judging by his effortlessly stylish sound—part swirly psych-folk, part brooding dance pop—he was listening closely." - Time Out

In July 2012, his debut EP produced by Jamie Lidell was made available for free on his website.
Steel Phantoms
Steel Phantoms
Punk w/ Atmosphere…
Former drummer of Montreal indie group Islands, Aaron Harris entered the Brooklyn scene in 2009 when he started Steel Phantoms. Jesse Newkirk soon joined the band, and the combination of pointed songcrafting and dynamic stage shows has been dazzling crowds since. The Harris/Newkirk duo melds elements from the history of proto-punk, alternative, and modern indie to reach wide-ranging territory unexpected from a two-piece. Nevertheless, Harris’s fervid vocals and exhilarating drumming joined with Newkirk’s aggressive, ethereal guitar make for a definitive sound throughout.
