The group achieved success with the 2011 release of its debut album, Torches, which has sold nearly two million copies and more than ten million singles worldwide. Torches features the No. 1 single “Pumped Up Kicks,” which was declared “the year’s anthem” by Spin, and also spawned the chart-topping singles “Don’t Stop (Color on the Walls),” “Houdini,” and “Helena Beat.” Foster the People garnered three Grammy nominations for its monumental debut, including Best Alternative Album, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Pumped Up Kicks,” and Best Short Form Music Video for “Houdini.”

Gallant

After moving to Los Angeles post-graduation at NYU, Gallant released a handful of self-made albums and songs. Having impressed the manager of EDM acts Krewella and ZHU, Gallant then associated with Mind of a Genius Records, the outlet for 2015 releases "Open Up" and "Talking in Your Sleep." Like earlier tracks, these songs enhanced Gallant’s expressive vocals with deep-probing bass, shadowy layers of percussion, and keyboards.

Bob Moses

The duo Bob Moses is often lauded as underground electronica's hope in the mainstream music world. The Brooklyn-based band pumps out original scores of ghostly beats with an unmatched melodic depth. Overlaid with original songwriting, the music is firmly held in the underground electronic genre but dips its toe into something more familiar, for those new to the scene. The result is something for the dance floor and the spirit. In 2015, they released their debut album, Days Gone By.

 Allen Stone

Allen Stone's music melts moods into the feelings his songs bring. The soulful American musician, from Chewelah, Washington, takes his listeners with him on a journey of love and life with his down-to-earth lyrics and R&B-style music. Pulling from retro influences like Stevie Wonder, Prince, and Bill Withers, the tunes switch from funky and lighthearted to deep and introspective, all the while keeping a strong, relatable tone. Describing himself as a "hippie with soul," Allen and his music feel like an old friend with an old soul.

Quantic is the recording alias of British-born musician Will Holland. Will's sound is rooted in the richness of the golden age of recording, with a fearless modern bite made for the dance floor.

He has 16 studio albums under his belt and has collaborated and recorded with the likes of Ana Tijoux, Jorge Drexler, Shinehead, Anibal Velasquez, and more. Currently residing in Brooklyn, Will has a new musical release (or two!) planned for 2016.

Rhye

Rhye is a low-key collaboration between two well-regarded producers, multi-instrumentalists, and vocalists: Denmark native Robin Braun (a.k.a. Robin Hannibal, member of Boom Clap Bachelors, Owusu & Hannibal, Parallel Dance Ensemble, and Quadron) and Canadian Mike Milosh (a.k.a. Milosh). In 2010, Hannibal contacted Milosh, who had released three albums on Plug Research, about working on a remix. The meeting was more productive than anticipated and developed into the initially secretive project Rhye. Their first album was titled Woman.

Chances-With-Wolves-11.jpg

Chances with Wolves

Chances with Wolves is an eclectic online music phenomenon with a six-year-running radio program on East Village Radio in NYC. Operated by two Brooklyn-raised DJs, Kenan and Kray—whose love of music has bonded them since they were kids—Chances with Wolves has freed itself of the traditional constraints of modern-day radio programming by ignoring genre categories in favor of "feel" and "mood." The duo spin obscure, older records, mixing in different genres of music, quotes from movies, and of course high-pitched wolf howls.

His music combines soul vocals, deep bass lines, and accurate high-hat placement in a continuous search for just the right sounds. Rampue has performed all over the world, from Fusion Festival to Burning Man.
