Future Rock

Future Rock is electronic sensory overload. The trio has steadily been touring the US, electrifying audiences and developing a dedicated following during their journey. Their legendary late night performances at festivals and after-parties have quickly confirmed their status at the top of the live electronic scene. Coupled with an explosive light show, FR certifies an unparalleled multi-sense experience. The Chicago-based trio exhibits an uncommon grasp of minimalist, yet visceral, rock. Skillfully manipulating live loops, synthesizers, filters and an electronic drum kit, the trio succeeds in creating a larger-than-life sound that sends crowds into frenzies.

Mickey Kellerman and Felix Moreno utilize a myriad of synthesizers, electronics, and instruments to compose and arrange their instrumental music. The audience can rarely identify the origin of each sound. "I love that look of confusion... when the audience sees me play my bass and they have no idea what's coming out," says Moreno. Drummer Darren Heitz finishes FR's sound by blending acoustic and electronic drum timbres with live sampling/looping run through his synthesizers.

Kellerman explains, "We manage to pull off our live show while keeping pre-recorded samples to a minimum. Ninety-nine percent of our live show is live." This concept is at the core of Future Rock: technology has progressed so that real-time sampling and electronic synthesis can now occur on-stage. "Its really important to not get to geeky with our music. People want to hear songs with melodies or grooves they can dance to. Its a question of utilizing the new technology with the old song structure so that kids can rock out the same way, but to new sounds," Heitz adds. 

Sonic Spank

SONIC SPANK was formed in early 2009 by Benjamin Karp & Ian McGuire. In 2010 they added drummer Scotty Zwang. The trio seamlessly blends House, Hip Hop, Drum & Bass, Jazz, Funk and Dubstep beats while incorporating live keyboard and guitar improvisation on top. Ben & Ian have been friends since Preschool and have collaborated on music since the beginning of High School which explains their undeniable chemistry on stage and innocent perversion. SONIC SPANK penetrates the line between the craft of DJing and virtuoso instrumental musicianship. 

SONIC SPANK has already made appearances at regional clubs, parties, radio stations and festivals with an enthusiastic response from audiences. So far, SONIC SPANK has been billed with major national/international acts including the Disco Biscuits, Pretty Lights, Lotus, Crystal Method, The New Deal, Infected Mushroom, Pnuma Live PA and The Egg. 

Additionally, Ian McGuire, Ben Karp & Scotty Zwang have collaborated onstage with members of The Disco Biscuits, Brothers Past, Lotus, Future Rock, Orchard Lounge, Biodiesel, KJ Sawka, Breakscience, The Pnuma Trio, Sonkin, Lo Life, RAQ, Calvin Weston and The Ally to name a few.

Horizon Wireless

DJ/Producer Harrison Waxenberg has been making music since he was able to tie his shoes. This might have been later than most children his age, but better late than never. After playing numerous shows and festivals under this moniker for the past year, Horizon Wireless seems to only be picking up speed and momentum. With the addition of Sol Montoya (Digifront) on drums, Horizon Wireless becomes a storm of soul smashing beats, titillating harmonies, and wet melodies. This sonic tsunami can easily induce multiple crowdgasms. Bringing a towel to shows is not only recommended, but also encouraged.
