At a time when the idea of “alternative R&B” has become the genre-defying norm, when hip hop and EDM and house music and indie-rock have all started to sound mysteriously the same, the chilled-out, futuristic soul vibes of Brooklyn electro pop duo denitia and sene make a perfect kind of sense. Formed in 2011, the Brooklyn-based group has released one full-length (2013’s His and Hers), a handful of singles, and two EPs (2012’s Blah Blah Blah and 2014’s side fx)—all of which show off the band’s ability to move seamlessly between pure pop, subdued electronica, and slinky R&B with a sound that brings to mind everything from Massive Attack, The Fugees, or the shadowy late-night atmospherics of The XX. The pairing of powerhouse vocalist Denitia and production whiz and beat-maker Sene is a kind of perfect musical union—a complimentary collision of personalities and musical sensibilities that makes for next level perfect pop.
Zee Will
Zee Will
Next generation hip-hop. He performs w/ a live band or DJ.
Poetic approach and raw talent. Drive, determination with a lyrical edge. In 2012 he won multiple talent shows to earn the right to open for Kendrick Lamar. He has also shared the stage w/ Rakim, Freddie Gibbs, Black Milk, Dizzy Wright, Slum Village, Fashawn, Saba.
Sudie
Sudie
Singer | Songwriter | Producer

Sudie describes her sound as “something jazzy meets kind of crazy… if Bjork had arranged something for Ella Fitzgerald or Billie Holiday to sing over.” It’s a sound she’s crafted all by herself, utilizing a keyboard, microphone and MacBook inside the confines of her tiny bathroom in Dallas, TX.

In 2015, Sudie released her debut self-titled EP through the boutique record label Computer Ugly. “Each song is like an individual piece of my soul, an anthology. I’ve studio music for most of my life so this is a collage of those things I’ve picked up, learned, and been inspired by along the way, with my own twist.” The video "Heartattack," the EP's lead single, premiered on Jezebel and symbolizes the loss of innocence from childhood to adulthood in with Sudie disrobing until she's nude at the end.
Close Talker
Close Talker
Close Talker is the exalted indie rock trio from Saskatoon, Canada. Formed in 2012, the band has made great strides in a short period of time: two full-length releases, numerous tours throughout North America, Europe, and the UK, and international attention garnered from critically acclaimed blogs and publications. Spin Magazine writes, “Close Talker pair their rigid yet sanguine melodies with achingly euphoric lyricism,” while Q Magazine calls the band “one of their country’s most zesty exports.” Exclaim! described the live show as magnetic; “a nice balance of anthemic rock with soaring harmonies and spacey, melodic breakdowns.” In 2015 Close Talker received nominations for Sirius XM’s Emerging Artist of the Year, as well as Western Canadian Music Award’s Video of the Year, Independent Album of the Year, and Radio Starmaker’s Rock Recording of the year.

Close Talker is Will Quiring, Matthew Kopperud, and Chris Morien.
B.Nice & Carl
B.Nice & Carl
Think of them as the Valley's music scene's answer to Hollywood's Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan. Except Bnice has dreads and Carl is a 5'4 Filipino/Chinese-American.
As self-described children of the likes of Outkast and A Tribe Called Quest, they bring in a mixture of an appreciation for smart wordplay and lyricism with very new school sensibilities. It's always going to be a fun time with this odd couple. Upon listening to them either as individuals or as a duo, you can get the idea that they don't necessarily fit the mold of the times, but rather make the molds fit them.
