Tapping the deepest roots of rock n roll, Primal Kings take your favorite audio dishes and deconstruct them, using the tastiest ingredients to create a flavor that is brand new and yet somehow familiar. Their debut, eponymous, record comes to the table awash in aromas of primitive grooves grown in dark, fertile tonal dirt, and gives us a generous helping of heartfelt reflections of lives well lived … warts and all. It excites the pallet while it satisfies like our most beloved comfort food.
Primal Kings was forged in the fires of a 5 year quest to create a full length, fully analog, LP. The journey began when indie, blues/roots/rock singer songwriter, Chris Wilson enlisted the help of veteran engineer/producer, Lenise Bent (Aja, Breakfast in America, Tusk, Autoamerican) to help him capture the raw energy of the band, then known as the Barrelhouse Kings, that had been wowing audiences in LA clubs. The lineup then included incendiary guitarist Jed Ojeda, thunderous drummer Paul Cassarino, and infinitely inventive bassist, Roger Upchurch, and it was this 4 piece unit that walked into Entourage Studios for a 2 and half day marathon session that yielded the primary tracks for the album.
What followed was the long journey toward completion of a fully realized record. Along the way, Wilson recruited his long time writing and performing partner, Scott Pontius, a strong analog engineer in his own right, to lend his musical, vocal, and technical talents to the cause. The journey was long and arduous, and some were lost along the way. Cutting tracks by hook or by crook, cobbling together gear, and even going so far as to weld together DIY plate reverb units, is not for the feint of heart; and in the end only Wilson, Bent, Upchurch, and Pontius remained. The result was the creation of Elsewhere Studios, and the birth of Primal Kings.
Now, armed with digital masters honed by Warren Sokol at Universal Mastering, Wilson, Upchurch and Pontius set out to retake the stage, as Primal Kings, in support of the album they have so lovingly fostered, and to raise the funds to complete their dream of pressing vinyl and releasing a truly analog LP. With a live show that channels the raw energy that sparked it all, while faithfully representing their carefully crafted debut album, Primal Kings shows will leave you simultaneously satisfied, and craving more.
Curtsy is an angry-dream-pop/dreamy-alt-rock five piece from Los Angeles. The band was formed when Austin Knecht (vocals, guitar) auditioned as a lap steel player for a local country-folk band fronted by Crystal Napoles (vocals, keys). After bonding over their mutual love of 80s pop and 90s shoegaze, the pair branched off on their own and began writing stripped-down indie pop songs together. Jonathan Palmquist (drums), Kai Dodson (bass), and Tamara Simons (guitar) joined the duo along the way, forming a propulsive, rich rhythm section.
Curtsy's sound meshes elements of lush indie pop with alt rock's driving rhythms and folk rock's haunting boy/girl harmonies.

Busking on the Venice beach boardwalk isn't the first place that comes to mind when bands think of a place to practice... But it was where Strange Brew perfected their performance and started to get noticed. Hailing out of Los Angeles, Strange Brew is comprised of a self produced & recording trio bringing together an eclectic blend of reggae and hip-hop. Experimental synths mixed with hard hitting bass create a truly unique and vibrant sound. The band came together after touring with other groups to form this harmonious vibe. Their single, “Catch a Feeling” showcases a catchy blend of different genres - creating an infectious summer sound.
h2the (LIVE SET)
h2the merges 80s synths and layered beats from producer Erez ‘Diwon’ Safar (Bonhom, Dreams in Static, etc.), brought to life through dynamic visuals and sound.
“Brilliantly blending 80’s synths with an new cutting edge sampling style, rising hip hop/experimental producer h2the released his debut single titled “Taste Of The“, a teaser/cut-up off his new beat tape exclusively available on cassette!” – UGHH
URB Magazine wrote that “[h2the] is something else…in a profound kind of way,” calling his sound titillating and “juicy for the ears,” while The Village Voice described his productions as “adventurous and banging.”
2DOPEBOYZ and Vibe Magazine’s have also noted h2the’s rap flips of 80's inspired sonics. It’s the producer as auteur as every track takes you through the emotional space of the artist, like Kanye or Godard.
