Jean Lorenzo, known as SILENT EM, fell into his solo project by chance. He had played guitar and bass in post-punk and punk bands but in 2010 he found, upon his transition to a new city, that he could create music singularly with synthesizers and drum machines. His songs explore themes of disillusion, disappointment with religious views, war and lost love utopias. The influence of 1980s French coldwave and post-punk is apparent in his craft.

MILLIKEN CHAMBER is the creative project of Anna Schmidt and Kevin Czarnik who gained some attention as one half of the project Forever Grey. A darkwave duo, reminiscent of 80s synth pop. Mood drenched electronics mixed alongside haunting and melancholic vocals. Icy and distinguishing synth leads with pounding bass lines to make you dance on a frozen lake in the dead of night.

PRIMITIVE HEART is a synth-pop project by multi-genre producer & visual artist Dani Mari. The debut album “No Fear In Love” was co-produced by Rosana Cabán (Psychic Twin, Cosas Cosas) and can be compared to the sounds of Sylvan Esso, Mazzy Star and Beach House. Audiences across the world have gravitated towards Dani Mari’s beautifully haunting voice and simplistic elegant lyrics. Dani Mari’s ethereal vocals transport listeners to an era of nostalgia which exists within the depths of her soul.
