Comic Strips
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 8:45pm - 9:50pm @ The Madison (307-A W 5th St)

    Tom Holroyd also known as Comic Strips is an Electro House producer hailing from Pittsburgh, PA. Debuting at the young age of 18, now at the age of 19, is currently making a mark on the dance music community. Known for his distinct, edgy, and complex sound, he has the tendency to combine elements of heavy Electro House with anything from delicate chord progressions, intricate melodies, and of course, Monstrous bass lines. Taking the listener on a thrill ride filled with ambitious breakdowns and intense build-ups that ensue crushing anticipation. Such a sound has caught the eyes of blogs, labels, DJ’s and fans from LA to Hong Kong. Comic Strips tunes have been supported by the likes of Steve Aoki, Spencer & Hill, Cold Blank, Lucky Date and Far Too Loud. His first EP, “That's My Sh!!” released by Rot10 Musik received instant attention internationally; Earmilk.com claimed Comic Strips to be their “Breakout artist of the year.” Following “That's My Sh!!” artists from all over the world have sought Comic Strips out for his unique ways to remix tunes. These artists include, Vengeance, Subvader, Microprophet and many others. In a short time, Holroyd’s musical styling’s have been featured on over ten releases on Beatport in just five months. ­Recently, his Remix of Skrillex’s “Ruffneck Bass” Jumped into the Top 10 Hypem Chart in just three days after being posted by Tiltmag.com, neck & neck with the likes of Avicii, Knife Party, & Diplo.
    Tom’s two latest releases received a warm response on Beatport, with “Party Zone” released by Bazooka Records, Home to Zedd, Spencer & Hill and Porter Robinson, jumping up to the number 9 spot on Beatport’s Top 100 Releases, and “Dark Movies” released by LA based DJ Duo, Cold Blanks record label, Burn The Fire Records, Both songs gracing the Top 100 Electro House single chart at the number 50 spot. Outside of Beatport, The blogosphere praised both releases even higher than his first, debut EP. It seems the second Tom drops a new tune; blogs eat it up instantaneously and give nothing but high praise. Check out what the Untz.com has to say about his latest remix of Gotye’s Somebody I used to Know “Tom does a great job at creating his own feel to the music, while still keeping a large portion of the vocals to help convey the incredible emotion the song contains. The cut kicks in the emphatic vocals immediately to snag the listeners attention from the very start. He mixes them with melodic synths and incredibly captivating snare drums, and they combine to make an emotive exciting build up. The drop displays some of Tom’s most impressive and ample wobbles of any of his cuts, and does a great job of bridging the verses together with chopped up vocals that mix up the phrase, “Now you’re just somebody that I used to know.” After the drop climaxes, we get a taste of Kimbra’s beautiful and touching vocals that add so much to this song. This remix does an incredible job at making her voice sound even more passionate by matching it with a slow synth buildup that perfectly compliments it.
    Overall, this Comic Strip remix is a gem. At around 5:30 minutes long, it keeps the listener entranced with all the components of a good remix. He’s received over 2,000 plays on his Soundcloud in the first 2 days, and his fans are thoroughly satisfied”
    November of 2011 marked a pivotal point in Holroyd’s career, he completed his first tour ever 10,000 miles away in Australia. The 4-show tour was successful to say the least with pulling 500+ people into packed clubs in Sydney and Perth. In the mean time, he has been popping up on some massive shows, sharing the stage with legendary names like MSTRKRFT, Rusko, Wolfgang Gartner, Pretty Lights, Excision, Designer Drugs, Bass Jackers, Le Castle Vania, Lucky Date & others. Comic Strips has been sought out quite aggressively due to his unparalleled energy & his captivating ability to interact with the crowd.
    Holroyd’s deep passion & dedication for music will continue to drive him to the forefront of the Electronic Dance Music world. Expect only great things to come.

Revolvr
    Wednesday March 14, 2012 10:00pm - 10:50pm @ The Madison (307-A W 5th St)

    When Revolvr pulls the trigger, you feel it. Revolvr a.k.a. Touvan Sughiarto officially entered the electronic music world in 2011. Collaborating with Donald Glaude, he dropped an incendiary and infectious remix of Scooter and LaVelle's "Beats Inside My Head" that set Beatport ablaze. Spreading like wildfire, "Beats Inside My Head" peaked at #2 on the site's Electro House Chart and #16 on the Overall Chart. Meanwhile, Tiësto added the track to his podcast and the live set of his mega-successful Club Life tour, exposing the remix to thousands nightly. It was Revolvr's first bona fide hit.

Orthy
    Thursday March 15, 2012 9:00pm - 10:00pm @ The Madison (307-A W 5th St)
    Orthy makes the kind of music you can’t help but fall in love with. A native of Austin, the singer and multi-instrumentalist continues a rich lineage of adventurous music that has long emanated from the Texan capital. Orthy’s singular brand of celestial pop is at once playful and profound, exuberant and exhilarating. On his stunning debut, Sueños, he channels everything from Bowie and The Beach Boys to Eno and Tom Petty with aplomb. And in just three songs no less.

CFCF
    Thursday March 15, 2012 11:00pm - 12:00am @ The Madison (307-A W 5th St)
    CFCF, aka Michael Silver, has managed to build a world all his own since his debut LP ‘Continent’, an impressive collage of vintage electronic textures evoking grandiose landscapes worthy of a Michael Mann film. ‘The River’, an EP based partly on Werner Herzog’s classic film Fitzcarraldo, deepened a growing obsession with conjuring far-away landscapes and voyages through a style which is at times melancholy, propulsive and ecstatic. Working in genres ranging from house and disco to ambient and new age to rap and R&B, and pulling influences from Peter Gabriel and Popol Vuh to Mr. Fingers and DJ Screw, CFCF’s music is at once versatile and far-reaching yet eminently listenable and recognizably pop, and always vivid.

RAC
    Friday March 16, 2012 12:00am - 1:00am @ The Madison (307-A W 5th St)

    RAC is a group of producers who create re-interpretative rock/electronica/dance remixes for musical artists. RAC strives to maintain a style of remixing that strays from the "club mix" archetype, creating new incarnations of songs that stem from the original structure, but expand on their genre and musical arrangement. RAC mixes typically feature a unique blend of hip-hop and vintage drum machine samples, analog synthesizers, melodic hooks, and original performed instrumentation by the remix artists themselves. Unlike many electronic remixes, which are commonly technical and precise, RAC mixes embody a unique aesthetic based around emotion and nuance, an almost intangible warmth and innate playfulness.

Sepalcure
    Saturday March 17, 2012 12:10am - 12:50am @ The Madison (307-A W 5th St)

    Sepalcure’s combination of love for bass and 90s house acapellas is the culmination of a cathartic two week collaboration between Travis Stewart (Machinedrum) and Praveen Sharma (Praveen & Benoît). Their mix of tribal dub, house and two step beats works equally well for both late nights in the club and rainy, introspective nights at home. Detroit techno chords cut through wooden beats, neon synths and dubbed out atmospherics. They've most recently released one of the most acclaimed albums of 2011, "Sepalcure", on Hotflush Recordings.
