Recognized as an extremely rare and diverse artist in the EDM scene, ill-esha is constantly pushing the boundaries of live sets with everything from loop pedals to keytars. Constantly evolving her dynamic and versatile musical taste, she is a perfect example of electronic music’s transition towards live instrumentation and indie pop sensibility.
::::: Esseks - 10:30 :::::
Esseks (Sam Eckstein) is a Brooklyn based producer and visual artist. His music ranges all the bass-centric genres with a focus on the off-kilter. The diverse elements of his music are tied together with Esseks’ subtle but instantly recognizable sound. It is dark but in a playful sense. Cartoon Villain music you could say. He has built up a large catalog of music since his first release in 2012 and put out releases with Wakaan (AZ), Gravitas Recordings (TX), Foundations Recordings (CA), and Smokers Cough (NY) along with a number of self releases and collaborations with artists like Yheti, Space Jesus, GDP.
::::: Kissee - 9:00 :::::
Curator of the Waddle Beats and leader of the penguins, comes Kissee (pronounced Kiss-ay). His music embodies a deep and powerful emotional feel. Light melodies laid over deep and heavy bass-lines create an atmosphere that is not easily replicated. His original productions mixed with his style of Melodic and Experimental Bass Music creates an auditory experience unlike any other.
