Harrison is the simplified alias of Harrison Robinson, a prolific 23 year-old Toronto-bred producer and musical polymath pushing a fresh sound influenced by a love for Samurai Champloo, J Dilla, Nujabes, Nintendo, and Parliament. He originally emerged onto the underground beat scene in 2013 with his Analogue Dreams EP before signing to Last Gang Records for the release of his critically-acclaimed, JUNO-nominated 2016 debut album Checkpoint Titanium. This past October he returned with Apricity, his sophomore album that showcased a masterful fusion of boogie, house, R&B, future funk, synth-pop, disco, chillwave, and more, and also signaled his evolution from sample-based production to full-fledged composition and instrumental arrangements.
Nark is the alias of Seattle-based DJ, producer, and label runner Kevin Kauer. Heavily active in the local club and arts community, he's the founder of Bottom Forty, a DJ collective / dance party / record label, as well as owner and editor-in-chief of Nark Magazine. As a purveyor of slithering acid and dark techno behind the decks, he's shared stages with world-class international artists such as Daniel Avery, Bicep, Audion, Jacques Renault, Matrixxman, The Black Madonna, Tim Sweeney, Honey Soundsystem, and many others. Earlier this year Nark released his Empty Void EP on underground label 2MR Records, a stacked 8-track showcase of his original productions alongside remixes from stalwarts such as Octo Octa and Mike Simonetti.
The stage name of Assata Perkins, Sa-Roc is a Washington, DC-raised, Atlanta-based MC that has carved out her own distinctive lane through a combination of airtight wordplay and intelligent concepts. Over the course of her illustrious career, she’s released a series of independent releases, performed alongside the likes of Talib Kweli, Dead Prez and Atmosphere, and she’s one of the few MC’s to perform regularly as a feature artist with The Roots all around the country. This year she released "Forever" and "Goddess Gang," two stunning singles that serve as an appetizer for her forthcoming official debut full-length album that's due out early 2019 via Rhymesayers. The album will be co-produced by her longtime music partner Sol Messiah, an Atlanta-based DJ/producer who began DJ'ing in the 80's before going on to work with legendary American record producer Dallas Austin around 1990, laying down scratches on iconic singles such as TLC's "Creep" and Boyz II Men's "Vibin," and producing tracks for hip-hop artists such as David Banner, Dead Prez, Nappy Roots and Chamillionaire.
DJ Julia aka Julia PlanetDisco is a Seattle-based DJ and event producer that's been active in the electronic dance community for over two decades. She got her start in the mid 1990s throwing parties in the deserts of New Mexico before relocating to Seattle in 1999 and quickly immersing herself in the local club culture. Her longtime love of electronic music has led to a deep and diverse record collection, from spinning drum & bass and Electroclash in the early 2000s, to her current passion for techno, electro, house, and bass music. In addition to DJ'ing at clubs around town, she's a co-founder of Kremfest and currently serves as a Nightclub Consultant & Event Producer at Seattle's Kremwerk and Timbre Room Complex.
