5am

Real Name: Sam Andrus

Have you ever suddenly realized it’s 5am? Sam Andrus has, many times. After attending the Rhode Island School of Design he decided to throw himself into electronic music. Using a guitar, countless max for live plugins, an evolving sound design palette and an affinity for space bass, 5am leads expeditions into the unknown through sound, crafting synesthetic beats that synthesize the real and the imaginary, and blur the familiar and the unrecognizable.

MAYBEWISE

Real Name: Peter Morrow

If you had to ask Peter and Patrick what their music sounds like, they’d probably have a hard time putting their answer into words. As natural sound/touch synesthetes, chances are they’d much prefer to describe it in terms of feels. Or maybe just the things they hit with sticks to make silly noises.

Peter and his leporine familiar, Patrick, are MAYBEWISE, an exploration into the more visceral corners of the future bass scene, walking through a contemplative blur between abstract space and dark UK club. Welcome to the Fishbowl, released on the Belgian Man Records imprint on 5/31/14, is at once a culmination and deconstruction of 10 years of intake and output, finding a strange place where autonomic, UKG, and oldskool dubstep can all play together.

When not recording funny sounds in the park, Peter and Patrick can be found in the left part of Philadelphia.

Nice Power

Members:

For really real, my attractive and urbane listener. Me and my best friend Alex Meiers were walking along Paris minding our own biz one day when handsome gargoyles on the facade of Notre Dame, or maybe urban falcons–it’s hard to say, arched gracefully overhead and dropped the ableton files for Sounds Good BB <3 carefully into our hands. That’s exactly what happened.

Influenced by Brainfeeder and Soulection stuff, T!be, Dorian Concept, French House, experimental hip hop, sound art, etc. (also with a background in multi-instrumental musical theory); you can’t describe Nice Power because it’s from the future l0l. But you can hear it and it will make you happy! Damn, whp$hhhh!

We would love you to listen!

Much love,

Sam Balfus and Alex Meiers AKA Nice Power <3
