Whether it be in their dance-infectious music video for “Loosen Up” or on the front page of NME UK for the premiere of their music video for indie-rock ballad “Holy”, the chances are that you have seen the faces of Adam Epelbaum and Edan Freiberger at one point or another. The two come together to form LA R&B/Funk outfit B00ty and are the next big sound signed to Geffen Records.
Epelbaum, a Miami native and Freiberger, originating from the Bay Area, both come from prolific artistic backgrounds; Edan via a childhood as a classically trained violinist, then learning every other instrument he could get his hands on, and Adam, growing up obsessing over films, comedy and screenwriting. Since meeting at UCLA acting school in 2011, they have been crossing genres from dance floor bangers to ballads that pull at your heart strings, and have made their mark on stages across some of the best clubs in LA. Their live set of falsetto swagger, which is often accompanied by a band full of horns, drums, backup singers, electric violin, and endless keyboards, have made them a must-see band around the local scene of East Hollywood and Downtown LA.
Fast forwarding to 2017: B00ty is the latest addition to the newly revamped Geffen Records headed by music industry veteran Neil Jacobsen, and are ready to release their first round of new music after a full year of studio lockouts collaborating with a variety of different producers and songwriters.
February 2018 marks the beginning of a brand new journey for B00ty. Their first new release titled “Modern Romance” is set to release the Friday, 2/16/18 and tied to the song is Anderson Paak. collaborator and Canadian multi-instrumentalist, Pomo as well as classically trained, world-wide touring guitarist, Danny McKinnon.
Look for B00ty to be your breakout artist of 2018 with a full release schedule and upcoming tour dates that include the Hollywood Roosevelt, The Peppermint Club in West Hollywood, and The Echo in Los Angeles.
Iconique melds disco rhythms and silky synth highlights to draw out the shimmering grit within pop music. Since arriving onto the scene in 2015, the band’s opulent sound has earned praise from a diverse set of media outlets and has been featured in Billboard, Earmilk, Gawker Media, and World of Wonder. The group electrifies live audiences with over-the-top displays of grandeur and the occasional keytar solo. Before their first pair of dance shoes had even worn through, Iconique graced the stage of some of Los Angeles’s most in vogue venues including The Echo, The Echoplex, and The Satellite. The trio consists of brothers Eric Promani (drums / synths) and Greg Promani (guitar), and frontman Leo Paparella (vocals / synths). Listeners are lured onto the dance floor with a synthesis of sounds ranging from Chic to David Bowie. By drawing from the past, Iconique creates the disco of the future.
