Byron The Aquarius
“I think that’s what music is missing: Live frequencies.I miss those days when people just created from the love of music.”
When Byron The Aquarius talks about live frequencies, his enthusiasm is infectious. A keys player by trade, Byron’s love for melody and harmony has consistently drawn the attention of electronic music’s leading labels and producers.
Hailing from Birmingham, Alabama, Byron launched his production career in 2007, collaborating with well-known Parisian producer Onra on an EP entitled “The Big Payback.” That collaboration led to numerous releases on independent labels like Rush Hour, Warp (with Flying Lotus), HHV, Circulations, Reebok Classics A Journey into Future, Real Soon, and Giant Step Records.
In 2010, Byron signed to a production deal with Denaun Porter from D12 (Eminem producer). It was at Denaun’s studio in Detroit that Byron realized he wanted to make his own music and bravely returned to Alabama to hone his craft through jazz studies and jazz composition programs in piano at Morehouse University and Jacksonville State University.
In 2015, Byron released a ten track solo album on BBE entitled “Planets of Love.” When he wasn’t working on his own music, he was playing keys in the studio with Kai Alce. Their creations got into the hands of Theo Parrish, who loved the sound of he sublime jazz-infected house and picked two tracks to release on his legendary Sound Signature label in 2016. The resulting “Highlife EP” has been hailed as "stunning", "intoxicating" and "essential."
So what’s next for Byron The Aquarius? In April, Byron dropped a project entitled “Gone Today Here TMRW” on Kyle Hall’s esteemed Detroit label, Wild Oats, to critical acclaim. He’ll also be heading out on tour for the summer and performing at the Dimensions Festival in August. Wherever Byron is -- in the studio working on music, performing live, or DJing – you can be sure 2016 will be filled with the sound of live frequencies.

New York’s house and disco evangelist Eli Escobar has been a familiar face on the city’s scene for the last two decades. Whether tearing it up at clubs across the capital (and beyond) or throwing down super-charged disco bombs on labels like Nervous and Strictly Rhythm, Escobar rarely steps out of his four-four beat. As one third of the Tiki Disco parties in Bushwick, as well as running his own Night People label, Escobar has been putting his own twist on the city’s house and disco soundtrack, joining the dots between yesterday’s golden era classics and today’s club anthems.
