— About the Artists —
Before the music, there was Future Soup. This was the first creation by Autograf, an eight-foot 500-pound sculpture. It’s an obsession with the Future and the limitless possibilities it holds. What started out as a desire to “make art,” turned into a curiosity to make music. This curiosity has set the Hype Machine charts ablaze hitting either the #1 or #2 spot five times for Autograf’s debut remixes of Marvin Gaye, Pharrell / Daft Punk, Stevie Wonder, French Horn Rebellion & Savoir Adore. In a short period of time, Autograf has gained critical acclaim in the blogosphere being named to Indie Shuffle’s annual “Best Remixes” award along with numerous features on ThisSongIsSick, Thump/Vice, Dancing Astronaut, Gotta Dance Dirty, Earmilk and more. With BBC Radio 1 airtime, and over 2 million Soundcloud plays and growing, this new music project is here to stay.
With all the newfound success for the music, Autograf hasn’t lost sight of the desire to make art. “We have some new sculptures in the works, and are also developing a hybrid electronic live show. We’re making our own midi-controllers, analog filters and custom digital instruments. For our live shows, we want to create a unique experience for the audience that goes beyond the DJ booth. For our DJ sets, perhaps we’ll install our sculptures to make a sort of dance party meets art installation. There’s just so much we want to do.”
With no shortage of ideas, where they go is as limitless as their vision for the “Future.” One thing is for certain; Autograf is taking their “Future Soup” mantra to heart.
GiBBZ is a Singer/Producer/Alter ego of Mike Gibney. After receiving a “degree” from The Berklee School of Music, Mike Gibney began working full time in and out of the studio for such artists as Soulive, Lettuce, Talib Kweli, Pharaoh Monch, Consequence, and others. After 4 years of working in a professional music environment as an engineer, he realized being an engineer is a thankless, miserable existence. Soon after, he met members of what is now the Lowtemp label, including Gramatik and Exmag. They convinced him that it’s OK to drink copious amounts of alcohol and make everyone within a 30 ft radius uncomfortable. Out of this drunken, obnoxious, perverted, glutinous, offensive mess of a man, GiBBZ was born.
LOU E. BAGELS
Bagels is a lover of life and gets excited at the chance to play music for people from all walks of life in the hopes of getting them to move their body and forget their day-to-day problems. He is known for great selections and a great spirit. One thing is for sure, you’ll never hear the same set twice. Although, he’s comfortable playing all kinds of music, these days it mostly consists of bass heavy funky electro breaks. Bagels is not afraid to use any or all of the music he’s collected on his journey to make you move.
