Aligning Minds is the unique and captivating collaboration of two producers and a live drummer using sound to achieve a mutual vision. Ethereal and dubby, uplifting and haunting, their music winds its way through the imaginative souls of its listeners, offering a deep exploration of subsonic mood and emotional atmosphere. Focused on unifying electronic music through diverse influence, their sound fuses elements of many genres like downtempo, dubstep, breakbeat and idm – but without the need for formulaic restrictions.
ૐ Words will inevitably fail to properly describe Freddy Todd. Genre-busting could be is an understatement. You can’t pin him down with lexicon like lazer-bass and glitch-funk; these phrases fall way short of capturing the expressiveness, fearlessness, and space-traveling qualities of his music. Hearing his music is akin to being abducted by an extra-terrestrial cruise liner where everyone is tripping on space acid. And if you are lucky enough to witness him produce, you’ll see that he fittingly looks just like the captain of said space cruiser, both hands intently gripping his electronics like the instrument panel on the flight deck.
Based out of Detroit, Freddy Todd is truly a master of his craft not only in the studio but on stages across the globe. Without any pre-recorded sets, Freddy has the skills and the audacity to perform on the fly mixes of 100% original material tailored to his specific audience, mood, and venue each night, be it a theater in northern California, a club in the back alleys of Detroit, or an outdoor festival in the bush off the eastern coast of Australia (occasionally on special nights with his live drummer, ill.so.naj). His earth shattering, meticulously programmed beats and rhythms, his lazer crunk, funky psychedelic bass and sound design, and his brain tingling, intelligently soul-soaked synths, melodies, and field-recorded samples are sure to shake your consciousness as they blast through airwaves out of top notch sound systems across the universe.
LANDSQUID continues to evolve and explore uncharted musical realms. The electronically charged power group’s performances result in a full body/mind/soul experience containing global elements of anciently inspired future music and performance.
They have shared the stage with premier 21st century electronic artists including Bassnectar, Bluetech, Pretty Lights, Richard Devine, the New Deal, EOTO, NastyNasty, Eliot Lipp, Mimosa, Big Gigantic, and have performed at festivals such as Camp Bisco and The Visionary Arts Fair with Alex and Allyson Grey.
Shuhandz has performed at festivals and events such as TomorrowWorld, Gratifly, Brewz Festival, Waveforms at The Orange Peel, The Visionary Arts Fair, & more.
Shuhandz has played alongside Pegboard Nerds, Of Montreal, Desert Dwellers, Antiserum, Random Rab, The Whigs, Aligning Minds, Ookay, MGK, Styles & Complete, Dizzy Wright, and many others. His releases have gained support from artists such as NGHTMRE, Savagez, LiTek and charted on the Beatport Top 100. Featured on popular music blogs including YourEDM & Hype Machine, Shuhandz has recently been recieving international radio play to global audiences of over 70,000! Catch his set at Imagine Music Festival in Atlanta this August.
▦VISUALS / PROJECTION MAPPING↙
↙ ANDY REED ↙
Andy Reed (Infinite Geometry) is an artist whose visual alchemy captures a magical journey into inter-dimensions — filled with prismatic colors, geometrical shapes, and a reminiscent ancient-futuristic feeling, amongst organic and terrestrial conceptions. His work foreshadows the energy of a another realm, making you feel as though you are peering into another galaxy and understanding that there is a possibility for life outside that of which we are familiar. Andy is completely self taught, with most of his inspiration coming from a near-death experience in 2006, as well as the astral realms, nature, intelligent electronic music, dreams, deep conversations, and ancient cultures. He currently is based out of the beautiful mountains of Asheville, NC and paints live throughout the country at music festivals and other events.
↙ DAVE McDERMOTT ↙
Dave McDermott is an Asheville based visionary artist and live painter. Painting visions has been a healing journey for Dave, bringing him closer to his soul, and the over-soul of humanity, earth, and the universe. His hope is that his art will have the same trans-formative effect on the viewer as it has for him. Live painting has had a very positive effect on Dave’s art, drawing him out of the studio into a more interactive environment, and allowing him to share the unfolding of the process with others.
