VibeSquad is the multi-personality brainchild of Aaron Holstein. With releases on NativeState, Proboscis, Interchill, Muti, and Sonic Dragon (Hong Kong) in 2007 alone VibeSquad is quickly emerging as a top producer in the west coast US electronic music scene. Though his legendary live sets may cause whiplash and heart attacks in the unsuspecting bystander, those prepared to launch get much more than they bargained for. Aaron’s music defies typical genre-labels and covers tempos from slow ’n hard lowriding krunkadelics to mid-tempo barnstormers all in a seamlessly flowing soulful mash- dirty and beautiful as life itself.
Brendan Angelides is a California based electronic music producer who records and performs live as Eskmo. His multi-genre compositions have been featured on influential labels like Warp Records, Ninja Tune and Planet Mu. While Angelides' tracks encompass a wide range of electronic styles, he avoids classifications. Soon after his remix of Warp's Bibio was featured in Pitchfork, he was asked by Flying Lotus to perform at the Brainfeeder Sessions in LA alongside Nosaj Thing. Angelides has since joined forces with Amon Tobin in a collaborative music project called "Eskamon" that highlights their love of field recoding and unique take on sound manipulation. Eskmo's music is stimulating without being overbearing. His tracks offer a vibrant rush of sound and quiet nuances often in the same track. XLR8R describes his work as "science-fiction like..spine tingling stuff." It's music that is both exciting and transformative. "I want to bring that out for people, and whatever that might activate for them. If someone is in a transitional phase, going through life difficulties or in a raw space, I want to direct [that energy] to a [more] productive space."
