Tommie Sunshine needs no introduction. Influenced by equal parts New Wave, Rock & Roll, and House music, American rave legend and Brooklyn, NY resident Tommie Sunshine continues to raise the bar as an electronic music artist, producer, songwriter, taste-making DJ, and remixer who’s worked with everyone from Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, Scissor Sisters, The Gossip, Fallout Boy, The Killers, Junkie XL, Panic! At The Disco and Shiny Toy Guns.
Downlow’d emerged from the roots of the rave and jungle scenes to establish himself as a multi-genre electronic music producer, DJ, and label founder (Macro Records). His theatrical, high energy DJ sets are a raucous blend of hard electro, glitchy dubstep, twisted moombahton, and nu-rave interwoven with banging top 40 remixes. Together, the pair previously did a remix for DJ Pierre on Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records.
The Night Owl is the new indie-dance/electronic pop project from songwriter, producer/remixer and DJ, Matt Johnson, of Boston-based nu-disco duo Nightriders. Johnson, also works under the monikers Heartache, Emjae and Screwface Johnson, has released a slew of tunes on his own OMG! Recordings imprint, remixed artists like Yoko Ono, Dirty Vegas, Don Diablo, The Pussy Cat Dolls, Bad Boy Bill, Vanessa Daou, Andy Caldwell and Sander Kleinenberg, and held a residency at Boston’s infamous club Rise.
Son of Sound is the alias of Brooklyn-based songwriter/producer/DJ Henry Maldonado. A contributor to the New York House scene throughout the 90s with his House 2 House, Urban Rhythm and Rhythm Section projects on Strictly Rhythm, King Street and MAW, Maldonado has become one of the rising stars of the synth-driven nu-disco/indie-dance scene with his group – Native Underground (whose tracks have appeared on Tirk, Under the Shade and Wurst Music) and through his own Speak Recordings imprint – whose catalog includes releases from Nu-disco royalty In Flagranti, Nick Chacona, Drrtyhaze and his own Son of Sound releases
This month PopMatters premiered the new video for the single off Scavenger (watch it HERE). The video was produced by Jerry Kolber (produced Queer Eye, National Geographic’s Brain Games, Inked) in collaboration with Chris Van Cleef (National Geographic) and Renee Bejil (New World Order).
Allies For Everyone specializes in dreamy, introspective synth-pop with percolating 90s electro house to create an infectious soundtrack with that rare ability to command a dance floor while simultaneously pulling at your heart strings. While drawing comparisons to artists like Pet Shop Boys, Jamie Jones, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and Bag Raiders, Suarez has nurtured his own unique, sultry and breezy sound that’s been hailed as “skillfully crafted synthpop that’s very listenable in the living room, yet bumps enough to get everybody’s feet moving in the club” (Magnetic Magazine) and the “perfect marriage of electropop and deep, sexy house” (Steve Madden).
