TYNY
TYNY
TYNY is a live electronic band evolved from the solo project of Peter Daaleman. Based in Durham, NC, the band focuses on expanding modern dance music into an engaging live experience. The members of TYNY all come from a diverse musical background with an emphasis in improvisational music. The process of TYNY is to deconstruct produced electronic dance tracks and replicate them with live instruments, solo sections, and MIDI triggers. TYNY aims to combine the energetic nature of dance music with the musicianship of improvisational music.
IAMDYNAMITE
IAMDYNAMITE
IAMDYNAMITE is the spirited, anthemic duo of Christopher Martin and Chris Phillips, two Michigan high school friends raised on the Seattle sound and 80s pop - anything with a beat that makes them move is an influence.
IAMDYNAMITE returns with an amazing follow up album to SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC in Wasa Tusa. This new record shows the creative reach IAMDYNAMITE has always possessed. The album highlights their melodic, hook laden songwriting skills and delivers on all emotional fronts.
When asked the difference between SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC and Wasa Tusa, Chris Martin commented, “Our first record was more of a documentation of our live show. This is our first record where the ultimate goal was to make cool and moving recordings, where the recording was the art form, not just a documentation of some songs. Our goal was to make recordings that make you feel something.”
Chris Phillips commented, "We took a no holds barred approach when recording this album. We needed to make a great album first and foremost. Our first album was written specifically for just drums and guitar, and to fully grab the attention of the listener and make them move. Wasa Tusa is just the next step for us as a band, it's not just drums and guitar.... it's so much
more!" Wasa Tusa is full of the catchy, powerful, and harmonic songs IAMDYNAMITE is known for, while showing a wider dynamic range that the band is fully capable of.
Wasa Tusa was recorded at Orb Studio in Austin, TX and finished back home in Michigan. Produced by Matt Noveskey, as well as IAMDYNAMITE, this time around the band has pushed themselves as writers, producers, and performers.
The first single, “In The Summer,” is poised to surpass the chart success IAMDYNAMITE experienced with “Where Will We Go.” That track spent over 20 weeks in the top 20 of the Billboard Alternative chart, a huge success for a debut single from the virtually, up to that point, unknown band out of Ann Arbor, MI. Two years of nonstop touring and airplay inspired so many new believers. Now the band stands poised to benefit from all those miles after delivering Wasa Tusa with 10 new tracks that will not only energize the existing fan base, but will create an even wider path of discovery for Chris and Chris.
Foxture
Foxture
"There's an ambient quality to the music, like it's the lost b-side collaboration from The XX and Of Monsters and Men, but it's lacking in that dronish, beaten down depressive lyrical feeling that can uncomfortably eclipses the actual musical talent." - Britt Chester , Yes! Weekly

"The four young men of Foxture take an intentional stance on trying to create an environment with their music where fans will feel welcome and included.

"We want it to feel like home at our show," said Marlon Blackmon, the band's vocalist and keyboardist.
"We never want people to feel uncomfortable," added guitarist Eddie Reynolds. "Like if you've had a rough day, this is a place you can just let loose."
The sound the band is going for — ambient, with some curveballs of tonal weirdness — is described by bassist Ross Barnes as "what it feels like to be in a room where the temperature is just right — almost like air conditioning."" - Jordan Green, Triad City Beat
