ARTIST BIOS:

LUXURY ELITE || Luxury Elite has released multiple albums and EPs, appeared in numerous magazines and webzines, and performed in multiple URL shows as well as 100% Electronicon. Lux was the founder of the digital label Fortune 500, which became a huge influence for many past and present vaporwave artists and labels. Lux also created the online radio show Neon Nights, using it as a platform to highlight to boost artists in the scene. After playing the biggest show of her life at last year’s 100% Electronicon event, she’s choosing to resurface for a moment in the Dairy State with some new music in tow. Be ready for a weird show!

VAPERROR || VAPERROR (Jeff Cardinal) is a multi-instrumentalist and electronic music producer who made his first splash in the music scene with the classic “Mana Pool” record in 2014. Combining jazz and funk sensibilities with fun, upbeat synthesizers, drum machines and bass guitar, VAPERROR consistently delivers in a wide variety of styles.

FIRE-TOOLZ || Producer / composer / multi-instrumentalist Angel Marcloid records music under the moniker Fire-Toolz. Though Marcloid’s output emerges in many distinct aliases — from the jazz fusion / new age of Nonlocal Forecast to the vapor dreams of MindSpring Memories — the Fire-Toolz catalog remains the central focus of the prolific artist’s musical universe. Fire-Toolz has released five full-lengths on Chicago label Hausu Mountain, including 2021’s Eternal Home and 2023’s I am upset because I see something that is not there, along with an LP on Ohio label Orange Milk, and a wide array of self-released music. The project draws energy from the constant fluctuation between seemingly disparate styles, yet Marcloid pulls off the impossible feat again and again of making chaotic deviations and improbable jump-cuts between ideas sound natural. Bursts of harsh textural noise cut into drifts of new age synth bliss, while miniature screamo verses bookend passages of hyper-technical prog rock. Breakbeats collide with death metal-inspired drum programming into cybernetic spikes of intensity. At times, Marcloid offers us some form of pop music, carried in passages of clean vocals and bright synth tones. Though Fire-Toolz weaves together far-flung elements of Marcloid’s musical upbringing, the project never engages in outright nostalgia. These vocabularies are not relics of the past dusted off and presented as novelties. They’re living traditions that the artist works with in the present tense.

AHERO || Ahero is making breakbeat-infused vaporwave for past, future, and present.

V4NGOE || Originating in 2018 from the DC-Metroarea, V4NGOE is a multi-media project born from the mind of Vincent Vangoe. Hearkening back to the hypnagogic jungle sounds reminiscent of the early Y2K era, V4NGOE is blending tight drum tracks to DIY sample-based pop-infused instrumentals, pairing with authentic and emotional vocals. Inspired by the sounds of electronic projects ESPRIT, Satin Sheets, and NMESH, V4NGOE is painting lush audible landscapes for listeners across the globe.

YUNG SHIRO || Formerly a curator, promoter, and owner of a now defunct music review site, YUNG SHIRO has been mixing various genres of electronic music since 2017. The Steve Aoki of vaporwave, YUNG SHIRO also spins house, bass, and club music, specializing in dancefloor-ready bangers. One half of the Hot Takes podcast and longtime member of the Rosewood collective, YUNG SHIRO has performed at various dance parties like ElectroniCON, Terminally Chill, Vaporspace StL, and Virtual Memory.

SOUND MARKET || Sound Market, aka Paul Dixon, is a multi-instrumentalist, producer and DJ who has been making vaporwave, Drum and Bass, Trap, and House music out of St. Louis Missouri since 2015. Sound Market’s music is characterized by its highly syncopated, rich soundscapes and its use of samples from video games, cell phones and computer operating systems. Sound Market has released several albums, EPs and singles, and has toured in multiple states throughout the USA.

SIMPLE SYRUP || Creating blissfully ethereal sounds and visuals, Simple Syrup is the silky smooth solo project of Columbus, Ohio based artist Josh Chaney. Originating in early 2021 with their debut LP “Make Me Float” releasing on Business Casual, this new-age producer has made waves throughout the internet scene. Simple Syrup pulls inspiration from vaporwave, breakbeats, 90’s r&b, new jack swing, psychedelia, new age ambient music, and hip hop, and blends it all together into one euphoric sound palette. If you want to know what it feels like to fly through cotton candy clouds and blissfully experience the innocence of the 90’s, Simple Syrup has the sounds for you.

LAKEWAVES TRIO || Lakewaves Trio is a Madison-centric, groove-based outfit that crafts celestial originals with an eclectic, progressive, soundscape-y instrumentalism. The Impressionistic, Carter-administration melodicism of Marlowe’s compositions is something of a perfect match for the jazzy, exploratory low end of Mason Aumanstal (“Mamo”) and the breezy, old-school dynamism of Will Bailey’s drums and earthy percussion. With a refreshing blend of musicianship, humor and renty party mystique, their tracks are imagistic and crackle with psychedelia, which sometimes sets an irreverent, Dada-absurdist backdrop for the unusually enjoyable music.

DUNZO DONALDS & LAYERS THOMPSON || Madison producer Layers Thompson melds hip hop, soul, and ambient moods on his new collaboration with Kenosha MC Dunzo Donalds. Their new project is a manifestation of the hope, light, and power we can all find within ourselves.

DJ Bone

As the guys at Fabric put it, it’s pretty hard to talk about Detroit’s DJ Bone without using the word ‘underground’. Bone rose through the Detroit ranks via his weekly sets at the Love Club (The Shelter) where his techno selections earned him the kind of dedicated following DJs only dream about. At one point he had so many residencies at different clubs in the Motor City he was playing five nights a week, rubbing shoulders behind the decks with everyone from Juan Atkins to Jeff Mills. He is the boss of two of Detroit’s most rarefied labels, and has shown an unwavering commitment to his cause through his own output as a producer, releasing an album, Out Of Nowhere and a whole bunch of raw 12′′s and EPs that routinely get called things like ‘special’ and ‘other worldly.’

The word legend is often cast around in the world of electronic music.
Occasionally though it seems like just the right word to use. DJ Bone is steeped in Detroit history, and is amongst the most technically accomplished techno DJs in the world. His passion and his unique skill shine through in everything he does and has earned him his place amongst Techno royalty – Mills, DVS1, Ben Sims, Dave Clarke – and as an inspiration to a younger generation of DJs like Ben Klock and Ben UFO. His fervour and enthusiasm for DJing even caught the ear of John Peel, who invited Dulan to perform live in front of an audience at the BBC’s Maida Vale studios back in 2001—quite a coup when you consider that only Richie Hawtin, Jeff Mills and Dave Clarke had the honour of doing this before him.

Join us after the dance tent at Musique Électronique for a special 2 hour set by DJ Sneak with local support by Miss K Funk on a proper VOID soundsystem. Grab a 2-night pass and save some money at the door!

DJ Sneak

In 1983, Carlos Sosa aka DJ Sneak, moved to the city of Chicago from The island of Puerto Rico, where his early musical experiences and Influences were rooted in salsa, meringue and famous Latin orchestras.

Chicago, like Puerto Rico, is a city rich with musical styles and sounds. It was in Chicago that Sneak found inspiration in underground house music, Warehouse parties and “old school” mix tapes from the early pioneers – Farley Jackmaster Funk, Ralphi Rosario, Steve Hurley and local radio station shows played on WBMX.

Sneak earned his nickname rocking designs in the graffiti tagging days and began working at retail stores as an airbrush artist, not long after he cultured the music industry world and began recording his first releases. While at retail stores Sneak developed his DJing skills around the city working regular mobile DJ jobs and local nightclubs. In an already saturated DJ pool, sneak focused on music production and started an independent label – Defiant Records.

In 1992, using the fundamental studio pieces, Sneak began recording tracks with an unusual new style. In 1994, while still working at local store Gramophone Records sneak met Cajmere (green velvet) owner of Cajual and Relief Records. Cajmere released some of sneak’s pivotal tracks and helped bring international recognition, with it, a global DJing career.

In 1995, sneak’s new sound revolutionized house music with inspirational sounds and rhythms never heard. The disco filtered house grooves became sneak’s signature sound. Innovator to many, sneak’s love for music spawned current talents such as Daft Punk, Basement Jaxx, Armand Van Helden. In 1996, Dj Sneak’s” You can’t hide from your bud” on Derrick Carter’s Classic Recordings turn out to be something of a masterpiece, setting a blueprint for many subsequent ‘filtered disco’tracks and preceding the wave of funky, disco-influenced house that would prove the massive popularity of Chicago underground music.

From 1996 through the present day DJ Sneak is also a veteran on the remix world, with highly expected remixes that drive dance floors across the globe to ecstatic conditions by means of his intense beats and rhythms. After years of development, DJ Sneak is a familiar name across the world’s club circuit rockin down the best venues and events.

MEET LYNY

21-year-old LYNY, aka Alec Leinhauser’s growth as an artist has been inescapable and he’s only just begun leaving his mark on the scene. He is pushing the boundaries of electronic music by discovering and combining new cutting-edge sounds with melodic compositions. His approach to bass music is heavily influenced by Hip-Hop and trap beats with a splash of R&B. He strives to balance his songs with heart wrenching basslines, arpeggiated melodies, hard hitting drums, and often throws in recognizable vocal chops. LYNY’s skills as a producer and engineer have landed him placements with Tobi Lou, Lox Chatterbox, and SVRITE.

Some of LYNY’s stand out tunes include Jump Bros! which is a flip of Destiny Child’s ‘Jumpin’ mixed with the ‘Super Smash Bros. Brawl’ theme melody, And Freak! which uses Missy Elliots vocals from ‘Get Ur Freak On’. His versatility has allowed him to touch many genres progressing his sound to a very unique place. This year, LYNY released his heavy hitting EP ‘Dash’ as well as collaborations with Bailo, L*o*J, and Dabow. The success of these releases has earned him major support from industry heavyweights, Marshmello, Louis The Child, and PEEKABOO as well as labels such as Majestic Casual and Lucid Monday.

LYNY is set to play shows all over the states with Boombox Cartel.

“Music has always been a big part of my life. I’ve been producing and writing music for as long as I can remember and it has become an essential form of self expression. I started the LYNY project in 2016 with a vision and goals in mind as I wanted to start fresh on a project with direction. It’s been a non-stop grind of learning the art of production, focusing on creating my own sound, and making tracks that are unusually unique while stressing on keeping them high-quality and clean. There is nothing I would rather be doing and I am super thankful for my journey thus far” – LYNY

King Pari

King Pari is an almost accidental project. Cameron Kinghorn and DJ Stepmom (Joe Christensen) didn’t even set out to start a band. When Joe texted Cameron some jams whipped up on his tape machine, Cameron hit him back with, “What is this? I want in.” Ten minutes before they first met up, Joe built the loop for their first single, ‘Sunshine,’ which they then wrote on the spot in a flurry of collective inspiration. Now the duo’s collection of work has grown, amassing millions of streams, radio play, shows across the US, and a fan base growing rapidly.

King Pari is much more than this serendipitous start though. The project is the culmination of Joe and Cameron’s years of hard work in the Minneapolis scene. Their musical talents afforded them opportunities few have experienced, from being invited to play shows at Prince’s Paisley Park by Prince himself to performing with Prince’s band New Power Generation. The two draw inspiration from the “no limits” nature of the Minneapolis sound, pushing it forward as they see it today.

All of these moments culminate in King Pari and lay the groundwork for one of the most exciting new projects in music right now. With their debut project, “Mary”, out everywhere and official remixes on the way from the likes of Peanut Butter Wolf, Moonchild, and Ginger Root it is clear that the future for King Pari is extremely bright and only getting brighter.

Horace Greene

Wisconsin band Horace Greene crafts danceable indie rock, teasing elements of synth-pop and psychedelia. The band formed in “Water City” Oshkosh, which has become the central location for the group’s busy tour schedule. Their latest release “The Diamond Engine,” is a 12 song album that showcases their vibrant mix of influences and further pushes the boundaries on their soul-stirring, ’60s-twinged style.
