Whomp presents
After The Rainbow.

Love & Light (USA)Simplify recordings

Comprised of the musical talents of Matt Madonna and Ryan Anderson, Love and Light hails from the high desert region of the Reno/Tahoe Basin.

Creating music that will touch your heart and elevate your soul, the duo’s primary focus is the uplifting of people across the world through pure intention, melodic synth lines, complex chord structure, intricate rhythms, and funky, chunky bass lines. With a strong focus on midtempo bass music, and producing talents that span into the realms of melodic dubstep, half-time drum and bass, moombahton, and four-on-the-floor bangers, Love and Light deliver a multi-genre live set spiced with an onmitempo evolution that will be sure to keep your body moving.

Combine the duo’s unique production style with their high-energy stage presence, add a set full of original music with a sprinkle with quality remixes, and the product is a sub-sonic experience that brings people together and leaves you with prolific feelings of connectedness.

The ‘Quanta’ project is Shanes new and exciting solo project bringing you music that combines various worldwide influences, with the results culminating in down-tempo, glitchy, psychedelic chilled-out dub. Enjoy!!


Jpod (Can)

JPOD’s signature sound combines dropkick drums, bobblehead bass and intelligent instrumentation that uniquely represents the flowering West-Coast Canada flavor.

With highly original productions, remixes and an innovative DJ style, JPOD’s live performances never fail to impress listeners and dancers alike, invariably creating an army of smiling faces.

In addition JPOD runs a cutting-edge digital label called Swing Set Sounds ( http://www.swingsetsounds.com/ ) which is aimed not only at providing great music but also various tools for new wave producers and remix DJs.

Having toured extensively in Western Canada and Australia at both clubs and festivals, JPOD continues to energetically spread his sound to all open ears.


Filastine (Spain) Muti Music

Filastine’s debut record, Burn It, was released by DJ Rupture in 2006 to much critical acclaim: “Filled with both jagged edges and moments of sad sweetness… Burn It is sure to win fans across multiple scenes”- XLR8R. The album ricocheted around the world, licensed and re-released by labels in France, Japan, and the US. The follow-up album, Dirty Bomb, dropped in 2009 through an alliance of labels led by French electro-dub imprint Jarring Effects. Prefix Mag called it “the prototype of globalized urban sound… It will devastate your subwoofer.”

Performing up to a hundred concerts per year, Filastine uses percussion to control loops and synchronized video from a heap of electronics wired to an amplified shopping cart. You may have seen him at a sweaty Tokyo nightclub, a football stadium in Casablanca, a respected euro-fest like Sonar, in a parking lot in Borneo, or touring the US with Bassnectar.

Before making electronic music Filastine played with the Infernal Noise Brigade, a marching band he founded for the Battle of Seattle. He continues to use audio as a tool for political intervention with the Sound Swarm, an orchestra of bike-mounted megaphones conducted by pirate radios transmitters.

Spring of 2012 Filastine delivers the LOOT, his third full length work. LOOT was made in tandem with a grip of potent videos, and launches with a year-long world tour with stops on every continent. The freshly re-tooled live set uses custom software to pull off some deep AV madness, and sees Filastine expanding to tour as a duo, always joined on stage by Indonesian vocalist Nova or one of the collaborating cellists from the album.
