+ Chuk Le Garcon
Ranging from introspectively soulful, to jazzy boombap, to ambient Lofi, to turntup, 808laden trap, Chuk Le Garçon blurs the lines between them all. Producing songs for indie raps elite like Worlds Fair, B.I.C, Moruf, Fresh Daily and ScienZe is just part of the blueprint for his agenda of letting the world hear his versatility. Carefully as selective about his music as he is with his art, he’s painstakingly specific about his visual aesthetic and does the photography and layout for all his music releases. As one of the founders of Brooklyn’s “Beat Haus” producer showcase, he’s currently prepping his debut High Water Music release and a tour through Europe as a supporting act for Fresh Daily & ScienZe.
+ 187 Sound

Around the same time, 187 Sound was introduced to UK Grime and 2 step, as well as the developing sounds of Dubstep. In 2007 he Cofounded one of the first northCalifornia dubstep crews, Subwize, where they threw renegade parties and hosted club nights featuring guest appearances. 187 Sound has shared the stage and played at festivals with acts such as Benga, Skream, DJ G, Djunia Antiserum, Matty G, Bakir and more.
