ABOUT XXYYXX
XXYYXX is the name of Orlando, FL’s 17 year old producer, Marcel Everett. Marcel works out of his bedroom creating harmonious music that provokes emotion and transmits vivid images of peace and still sadness. His full-length releases are available for digital download on Relief in Abstract Records.

ABOUT GIRAFFAGE
With a robust early following and organic online buzz, Giraffage offers a fresh, sample-rich sound of dreamy pop beats, sensual synths and lush experimental electronica. The creation of 23 year-old Charlie Yin of San Francisco, Giraffage is an exciting new producer with an intuitive grasp of modern music manipulation, delivering beats that are dripping with vibes and accessible to all.

Starting his musical journey in high school as a drummer for an eclectic array of bands from metal to indie rock, Yin turned to guitar and then soon moved to electronic music production on illegally downloaded software. Inspired by such pioneers as Daft Punk and Boards of Canada, Giraffage is a true bedroom producer that started playing out only after gaining solid traction for his music online. Sending out his first album for free to various music blogs and online publications, Giraffage quickly found an ardent fan following for his hazy and seductive style.

Early supporters of Giraffage’s screwed-down soundscapes, sample-based pop music and future R&B include such publications as Pitchfork, XLR8R, The Fader and Gorilla vs. Bear. After an extensive tour with the artist xxyyxx through Europe last year, Giraffage has big plans for 2013, with numerous upcoming performance dates including a Brooklyn Vegan showcase at SXSW and at Los Angeles’ world-renowned Low End Theory club night. Considered one to watch by industry insiders and the online underground, Giraffage’s newest release “Needs” is out for free February 26 on Alpha Pup Records.

It won’t take long to hear it as his purest form electronic work to date. Spacious opener “Treten” introduces a pulse that runs throughout Together, sometimes resting in warmth (“Hold”, “For Body and Kenzie”), other times reaching for the smoke-filled ceiling of a club (“ErbstÜck”, “Brooklyn Sunburn”). Perhaps these tracks feel so alive and communal because they were arrived at through performance. “I played a lot of this material on tour last year, and there’s a connection to that element, it’s all become very dear to me.”

“Together” is the key word here. This is a record meant for interaction, be it on the dancefloor or on a drive under the night sky with friends. “There are countless reasons on why a person would create something; my reason is bring people together, to let them know that they’re not alone.”


ABOUT KID SMPL
Kid Smpl is the current alias of 22-year-old Seattle producer Joey Butler. A veteran of stage and studio, Butler has been busy developing a style of atmospheric bass music that continues to deepen with each release. His signature sound incorporates lush synths, meditative low-end, muffled vocals samples, and warm textural field recordings, punctuated by drums that straddle every end of the tempo spectrum. The sounds are spread across a canvas made wide with breathing room. Briefly put, it evokes the introspection of a far-flung space colony’s forest terrarium, late into the evening, alone or with close company. After a string of successful releases showcasing this style, Butler is gearing up for his first full-length, to be released on the newly-conceived Hush Hush music label. The album promises to provide a fully realized picture of Butler as a producer, articulating the hazy future vision he has been praised for on numerous EPs, tracks, and remixes released to date.
