A trio with musical influences that extend far beyond their hometown of Nashville, Tennessee, BASECAMP came to fruition when the three producers joined forces to write. With a natural affinity for writing and collaborating, what resulted was 'Emmanuel' - a track that pulls you in and lingers in your consciousness even moments after its end. Realizing there was a musical void that needed to be filled, the idea of BASECAMP immediately took hold. Deconstructing typical genre boundaries by utilizing haunting melodies, intensified by thumping bass lines and heavily percussive drums, BASECAMP effortlessly layer unpredictable tempo changes with elements of subtle glitch and live strings. Combining seducing vocals with irresistible R&B timbre, the trio meshes seemingly incongruous musical textures and chords to create beautiful tension across all four tracks on their upcoming self-titled debut EP. Universally appealing with burning lyrics and a fully realized musicianship that can't be faltered, the EP is only a prelude to the eclectic BASECAMP narrative.
Blitz//Berlin is a band of music producers and composers hailing from Toronto, Ontario. The four piece cut their teeth playing the Canadian punk scene before forming the band in 2013. Known for blending a mix of orchestral, electronic, and industrial soundscapes, Blitz anchors these elements with an atypical punk sensibility, perhaps most apparent on their brooding lead track "The Drink". Since releasing their debut mixtape "One" in September of last year, the band has gone on to compose the critically acclaimed score for the feature film "Extraterrestrial". Expect a debut album from Blitz//Berlin in early 2015.
Morakoza (formerly Go Diana) are true party-rock, the only prog band that matters, music for contemplatively wilding out, and "your jam". Mixing atmospheric, textured guitars with hard club rhythms and electronics, Morakoza strike a balance between the dance-rock of Foals and the more experimental hip-hop leanings of acts like Alt-J and the Weeknd.

The band consists of Dragan Maricic (vocals, guitars), Matt Vultaggio (guitars, backing vocals), Lukas Witmer (drums), and Phil Witmer (bass, keyboards, beats).
