WASTELAND JAZZ UNIT ( Cincinnati, Ohio)
Wasteland Jazz Unit has been bringing their brand of Borbetomagus fueled honkin' for over 10 years now and have been described as taking "free-jazz instrumentation (clarinet and sax) and using it to crack open the gates of hell by manipulating them using electronic signal processing and overloaded FX, unleashing skull-scraping eruptions of high-end reed abuse and extreme skronk that threaten to send blood geysering from your eyeballs."

NPR, after seeing "The Unit" play the New Atlantis Festival in 2010, explained that after clearing out half of what little audience there was through "screeching walls of feedback and distortion emanating from their stacks of amplifiers and reeds was enough to crust over your eyes in dried blood" that anyone remaining were "immediate converts."

DEVELOPER (Dayton, Ohio)
Developer is the cut-up noise project of Matthew Reis from Dayton, OH. Reis has been a staple of the Ohio noise scene since the early 00's with his group Yes, Collapse and solo project Teeth Collection. Reis is also the sole operator of Factotum Tapes. His current project, Developer, "takes Gysin's cut up techniques and musique concrete tactics" and pushes them to their furthest point.

KEVIN GREENSPON
A touring veteran of fragmented scenes that stretch from Los Angeles into parts unknown and overlooked, Kevin Greenspon has performed hundreds of shows across the USA in venues ranging from art museums to abandoned naval bases.  Using multiple video projectors, tape machines and synth programs that react to each other, Greenspon’s live performances of contemplative ambient techno create an immersive audio-visual environment and ethereal atmosphere for self-reflection. For the past decade, he has run the Bridgetown Records label, releasing albums of all genres for like-minded peers from the deep reaches of the underground each season.

Greenspon elevates the practice of label-heading to a higher stratum by musically participating in his own scene — or, perhaps more accurately, serving as a shared focal point for dozens of loosely connected scenes across America. His exhaustive tour schedule, which tends to place him somewhere around the 100-shows-a-year benchmark, connects him with more nooks of the US underground on a regular basis than anyone should ever be able to keep track of in their brains. His tightly synced audio-visual sets, which time abstract visual expanses to the drifting layers of his synth-based compositions, have captivated normies and heads alike in an untold number of basement spaces or DIY living rooms.” - Maxwell Allison, Tiny Mix Tapes


J HAMILTON ISAACS
Denver based artist J Hamilton Isaacs has been making experimental music under the moniker dugoutcanoe since 2006. Modular synthesizers, Midi sequencing and sampling hardware are used to create meta-musical sound collage cacophonies to facilitate transcendental deep listening experiences. Drawing inspiration from works such as Steve Reich's Phase Music or the lush drones of Phil Niblock, to the relentless fury of Balinese gamelan; Isaacs creates original compositions that betray their foundational structure of decades steeped in the American DIY underground.

GARDENER
Under the name Gardener, Richmond, VA-based Dash Lewis uses a modular synthesizer, effects pedals, and his own voice to create intricately layered, rhythmically complex slabs of trance-inducing psychedelia deeply influenced by German kosmiche music of the 1970s, mid-career Beach Boys, and spiritual jazz. A frequent performer, Lewis has toured or shared the stage with The War on Drugs, Meg Mulhearn, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Fred Thomas, Benoit Pioulard, Jeff Zeigler, Mary Lattimore, Suuns, Brian Case (Disappears), Tashi Dorji, Mind Over Mirrors, and many more.
