tsimba, Ives, Sketchy Pete
tsimba is the alias adopted by quickly-rising bass music producer Mark Evans Musto based out of Brooklyn, NY, originally from Wallingford, CT. When it comes to artistic authenticity and ingenuity, tsimba sets the bar extremely high with his hard-hitting, genre-defying production and mind-melting DJ sets. Turning heads across the country with his ‘Future Roots Sound’, tsimba is undoubtedly building a reputation as one of the most dynamic, exciting artists in the mid-tempo/heavy bass scene.
Stretching the imagination to create extreme adventures into the depths of sound. It's time to fall in wonder again.
DC native and resident, Peter Nguyen brings bass a new flavor with original tracks and compiled mixes that combine hip hop, funk, and everything in between. He’s been inspired by music from age, being introduced to the school choir/band in the fifth grade. His music career started like many others in a best friend’s basement where he developed a love for electronic music, gaining his name from his crew of skaterats that rarely saw him land clean tricks, "sketchy”. He is inspired by old school hip hop, new school Bass, and anything else he is feeling, including The Jurassic 5, A Tribe Called Quest, Black Star, Lupe Fiasco, (Pre-Carter 3)Lil Wayne, Kanye West, J. Dilla, Najubes, Dr. Dre, Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, Tipper, Rusko, The Black Keys, Rage Against the Machine, and John Mayer. He is the illusive, imaginary and sometimes a little bit sketchy, Pete.
