Cadence Weapon
Deemed by Dazed and Confused as "hip hop's saviour", Cadence Weapon continues to firmly establish his legacy as a sonic pioneer while constantly pushing the rap and electronic music envelope. Following his critically acclaimed, Polaris Music Prize nominated albums Breaking Kayfabe and Afterparty Babies and a two year term as Edmonton's Poet Laureate, he returns with Hope In Dirt City out now on Upper Class Recordings. Hope In Dirt City is a clearly defined and emotionally mature statement of intent that represents the culmination of these experiences. Composed of a unique hybrid of psychedelic soul, old school rap, IDM and mutant disco; Hope In Dirt City is a groundbreaking achievement in hip hop, and Cadence Weapons' third Polaris Music Prize nominated album.

Following festival appearances at M for Montreal, SXSW, CMW, Primavera Sound and the release of Hope In Dirt City in May, Cadence Weapon toured the UK & North America with punk darlings "Japandroids" for 29 sold out nights, Cadence Weapon joined New York experimental noisemakers "Liars" for 12 dates in North America stunning fans with his unique brand of intelligent, high-energy rap. "Cadence Weapon put two hours worth of energy into a 45 minute set, and by the end of it, he had arrested everyone's attention and response to his music - the sign of a true rising emcee" - KEXP Radio

The Dirty Ghosts are pale and unwashed, yet they are fresh. Though based on solid ideas, the band is always attempting to get new with their style!!!!

Allyson handles electric guitar while Carson handles electric bass and Aesop handles the beat machines and this suits all of them just fine. person funk, with beats supplied by husband Aesop Rock and bass provided by gross jewellery enthusiast Carson Binks." --Heeb Magazine
Nate the Great
Nate the Great
22-year-old out of SF, Nate has been on an upwards trajectory since releasing the 2012 Common Folk album. Boasting over 100,000 views from his 2 most recent music videos (Them Days, Working-Class Heaven), Nate has collected accolades both locally (BAF10 class of 2013) and on a national scale (MTV, XXL).

A personal and introspective writer, Nate's music represents the promise; not only of his talents and his own life, but of this present generation of artists, creatives, and thinkers.
