Moon King
Moon King
Moon King is the alias of producer, singer & songwriter Daniel Benjamin. Born in Toronto, the musician recently moved to Detroit, where the musically fertile & offbeat neighborhood of Hamtramck became both his home and the subject material for a new set of recordings. Hamtramck Tapes Vol.1 documents his arrival into a new and unfamiliar environment combined with a growing obsession for underground dance music, a sound & spirit that has always felt right at home in Detroit. Collaborating with local artists & musicians, and having the freedom to stretch out after several years of constant touring, Daniel put together a completely new band with a sound drawing from dance music's early days, from post-disco pioneers like Klein & MBO, to the house music of Larry Heard, and up through the more pop-oriented songcraft of the Bee Gees or Prince. Daniel's attention to detail in production, and willingness to break the mold of what he sees as his own potential, have made him an interesting figure to watch. With Hamtramck Tapes Vol.1 he has created a lo-fi pop gem that will leave listeners eager to hear what comes next.
Fire Antlers
Fire Antlers
Fire Antlers is Jittery Lo-Fi Pop Rock guided by Primitive Disco Rhythms.

Fire Antlers is the jittery, pulsating beat of a half-functioning robot sent to Canada’s Capital to warn us about events that will probably never happen, backed by the sparkling chug of a muted surf guitar and the existential crooning of a thirty year old office worker... Travis Kinnear, supported by his archaic drum machine, crafts a unique blend of lo-fi pop and sci-folk that is danceable and layered with internal reflections: like some classic car cruising through the cosmos where the passing scenery causes you to ponder past relationships and inevitable futures.
Townes
Townes
Townes is the stage name for multi-instrumentalist Matt Radich. Originally from Oakville, Ontario, Matt now resides in Ottawa. After playing in many local bands, Matt decided to write and perform solo under the name Townes. Using synthesizers and guitars, Townes creates songs that will make the audience dance and sing throughout his live show. The influences for Townes include William Onyeabor, Diamond Rings, and Hot Chip. Townes is a constantly maturing musician who aims for the dance floor without skipping on substance.
