JIMKATA

Jimkata’s innovative, fan-funded record Die Digital turned the heads of critics and musicians when it dropped in the Fall of 2012, solidifying the band’s reputation as forward-thinking artists to pay attention to. Having been a mainstay of the Northeast jam circuit since 2006, Jimkata’s refined electro-rock sound is one of a band that has found its voice after years of experimentation. It’s more indie rock than jam, and more 90?s electronica than modern day EDM; yet the five-piece appeals to each of these audiences. In the spirit of LCD Soundsystem, MGMT and Talking Heads, Jimkata’s relevant, quotable lyrics create moods not just for fleeting moments, but for the lifestyle of an entire generation.

Following the release of their first live record 10 More Songs! (2013), Jimkata released their third studio EP and sixth official release Feel In Light on 3.4.14. Recorded with Die Digital producer Jocko Randall at his MoreSound Studios in Syracuse, NY Feel In Light represents the continued evolution of this modern rock band’s sound – one which is simpler in essence – exploring themes of love, triumph and appreciating second chances in life.

A staple of the festival circuit from the Rockies to the Atlantic, Jimkata has appeared every where from Gathering of The Vibes to Summer Camp, Snow Ball, Catskill Chill and Mountain Jam.

 



MAMMAL DAP

Mammal Dap is an unassuming crew of four young mammals aggressively contorting their instruments to create music that is both forward-thinking yet nostalgic, indescribable but strangely familiar. The band is based in Northampton, MA, comprised of Killian Karlsson (guitar), Zack Cross (keys), Rhees Williams (bass, synth bass), and Colin Jalbert (drums, samples). Coupling lay-back, off-kilter hip hop beats with a ferocious indie rock approach, they create instrumental alchemy that has elevated crowds in Boston, Philly, NYC and beyond. Take the hooks of Hall and Oates, simmer them in loops of Madlib, then wrap it in the attitude of the Beastie Boys. Throw the microphone in a river. Now you’ve got something close to Mammal Dap.

The four best friends first came together in fall 2012, while playing the stealth roles of rhythm section sidemen in various projects. Out from the back and into the front, they utilize those years of experience to lock in hypnotic breaks that draw from an equal love of old tones and new tricks. Their debut EP, 5lbs High5, captures the band’s earliest songwriting sessions as their unique take on soul music comes to shape. They have returned to their home studio once again to record their first full length record. In this relaxed environment, the mammals meticulously experiment with the fusion of electronic music and the element of human interaction.
