(the glitch mob)
“A love of hip-hop and a desire to create what I hear to be hip-hop in the future. A fusion of complex cutup edits and rhythms mixed with catchy aggressive dancefloor hip-hop… We are just trying to make the music that we want to hear because no one else has made it for us.” Born and bred in Weston, Massachussetts, Edward Ma, now known to the world as edIT, began his music career as “The Con Artist” just before the turn of the millennium. As a resident DJ at the now defunct Konkrete Jungle Los Angeles, he shared the stage with Hive, Daddy Kev, James Tai and mic rockers Busdriver, P.E.A.C.E. and Mikah 9. Konkrete Jungle marked the golden age of indie hip-hop in Los Angeles, and was the bridge between the jungle and b-boy massives. During this time, he also held a residency at Dublab Radio. He was one of the very first Dublab DJs and broadcasted two weekly shows from the legendary Melrose Avenue studio. Far ahead of its time, Dublab operated as an internet radio station and served as a unifying force for the melting pot of L.A.’s intellectual DJ culture. During this musical renaissance, edIT used “The Con Artist” name to produce and engineer for the likes of Sole (Anticon), Busdriver (Epitaph), Aloe Blacc (Stones Throw), Emanon (Shaman Work), and Dr. Oop (Black Love). His highly-anticipated sophomore album Certified Air Raid Material was released early this year by L.A.’s most daring indie label Alpha Pup Records: the album has been a long four years in the making, featuring collaborations with close allies such as The Grouch, Busdriver, TTC, Abstract Rude and D-Styles. Suffice to say, Certified Air Raid Material is a dramatic departure from the melancholy downtempo sounds of Crying Over Pros for No Reason. Upbeat, energetic and impossibly complex, Certified Air Raid Material has certainly raised the bar for state-of-the-art electronic music production. The record is a tour de force of sheer production and engineering genius, resulting in a soulful and futuristic style of dance music that is incomparable to anything else out there.

(Steppin' Ahead/Bassab )
OQTO, born in Fukuoka and now living in Kanagawa/Japan. He's been on the scene since electronica and abstract music have been banging. Having lived in Europe and India his experience of raves and dub sound systems have heavily influenced his sound. Since 2006 he has been producing tracks colored as dupstep; an organic sound surrounded by lots of spacy synthesizer, heavy bass and rough, confusing beats. OQTO tracks have been featureed on a compilation for Club Asia and he dedicated tunes for Ryuichi Sakamoto's project, 'Stop Rokkasho', while getting big props from the scene setting Mary Ann Hobbs/ BBC Radio 1 from the UK and regularly played on underground radio stations such as Sub FM and Brap FM. He owns the independent label "BASSAB" and has played with Goth-TRad, DJ Tsuyoshi, Tokyo Zawinul Bach to mention a few. In Dec. '08 his new and highly anticipated album appears from the exclusive Japanese Dupstep label, 'Steppin' Ahead'. We wait with baited breath..

(Made In Glitch)
Bridging the gap between synthpop and shoegaze, industrial and IDM, techno and trip-hop, BETAMAXNOMATES boldly goes where countless other better, more successful, artists have gone before. Armed only with a library of preset synth patches, recycled drum loops, and a passing familiarity with the I, IV, V chord progression, BETAMAXNOMATES� music has been deemed �listenable�, �[not] without merit�, and �tedious and derivative�. Notoriously antisocial, BETAMAXNOMATES shuns any sort of �collaboration�, fiercely suspicious of anyone who might seek to corrupt/improve his singular artistic vision. That said, should the �right contract� (read: any contract) come along, BETAMAXNOMATES is fully prepared to get a lopsided haircut, don a too-tight battered leather jacket and drainpipe jeans and generally compromise said vision all over the place.
