BOO SEEKA
BOO SEEKA
BOO Seeka's synths and beats keeps the energy sizzling like a neon sign on the Miami strip. The Sydney hip-hop-psych-soul/dream-tronic project begun an outlet for a couple of musical experiments, a testing ground for new sounds. And it's growing, multiplying and producing delicious sounds. Their debut single, "Kingdom Leader" was premiered and featured as Song of the Week on HillyDilly.com. The track made blog and radio waves abroad with features on The Music Ninja and LaBelle Musique and received airplay on KCRW (California), and on XFM in the UK.

A song that drips sexual foreplay and massages the soul. A combination of pulsating synthsounds that bed down layered textures of electronic bass and percussive beats. The sonic stimulations throughout the track enthral, and asks you to delve deeper with every second of the song. The single peaked at #6 on the Australian iTunes Electronic chart. 'Kingdom Leader' was also placed on high rotation on Triple J and played on community stations around the country.

Influenced by the layerings and experimental beats of Major Lazer, the cool swagger of J-Dilla and The Seed 2.0's Cody Chestnutt's soulful vocal delivery. BOO SEEKA snaps up melodies and bounces them off hip-hop/R&B driven grooves and beats that vibe.
COURTSHIP
COURTSHIP
Courtship is Eli Hirsch, 21 and Micah Gordon, 23. The boys met when they found themselves both playing in the backing band of another LA artist, and within 3 weeks of knowing each other, they had already started a project.

On paper, they don't make much sense. Eli grew up in Portland OR, playing in indie rock bands since he was 13, while Micah grew up near the beach in LA and is a trained jazz pianist. But somehow, it just worked. Inspired both by artists like MGMT, Passion Pit, Starfucker and Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Cyndi Lauper

Eli and Micah write and produce everything in Micah's bedroom by the ocean.
FLAGSHIP
FLAGSHIP
When the brotherhood of Flagship gathers together to innovate more of their intricate, ethereal diacoustics, it’s a virtually effortless endeavor. Their sound is visionary and vivid, much like the minds and hearts behind the instruments. The band is made up of Drake Margolnick and Michael Finster. Hailing from Charlotte, NC. Their new EP "Faded" is out now on Bright Antenna Records.
