Hot Sugar - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Hot Sugar
Hot Sugar makes thrilling, addictive electronic music out of sounds he generates from the world around him. That means there's some very weird, unusual and downright dangerous source material, but more on that later.
Lotide - (Set time: 1:00 AM)
Lotide
“Lotide is the brainchild of 20-year-old Devon Hansen, a multi-instrumentalist and videoartist based in Seattle, WA. Hansen’s work as Lotide is difficult to characterize: featuring a wide array of sounds reminiscent of dub, world music and psychedelia, soaked with delay and sequenced to head-nodding effect, Hansen’s compositions are best described as simply ‘beats music’. Accordingly, Lotide’s sound has a clear kinship with the likes of Brainfeeder and others in Los Angeles’ celebrated beats scene, but Hansen’s music feels distinctively more inward, ethereal and enigmatic than that of his contemporaries. Much of Hansen’s recent acclaim stems from remixes and video work for Serbia’s heralded electronic label Svetlana Industries, and he will soon join the ranks of peers Teebs and BNJMN by releasing his debut EP on the label.”

Jim-E Stack - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Jim-E Stack
San Francisco born, New Orleans living, DJ/producer Jim-E Stack is young and doing his thing. Drawing influence anywhere from UK funky to Mexico's 3ball, and house to pop, he strives to create his own eclectic brand of club music. Born James Stack, Jim-E Stack grew up in San Francisco, eating burritos, drinking 40s, and playing drums in a string of terrible punk bands. A new found interest in club music and the World Wide Web would bring him into a new class of young producers as infatuated by musical internet exploration, as they are with pushing the sounds of today's club music
