::: Govinda :::
Govinda is the alter-ego of Austin based producer/composer Shane Madden. He began studying violin and composition at the age of eight and went on to study classical violin at the University of Texas where he fell in love with electronic music production. It was in Madden’s pursuit of his gypsy roots that he opened his ears to music from around the world. From experiences learning violin with mysterious masters on his journeys across the globe and his passion for modern design and technology, the current sound of Govinda was born.
Govinda has played with Thievery Corporation, Tipper, Bassnectar, Shpongle, Cheb I Sabbah, STS9 and many more and been featured on over 25 compilations such as Buddha Bar II, Asian Travels II, and Nirvana Lounge selling a combined 400,000 copies. Govinda has played at numerous festivals throughout North America including Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, Sea of Dreams, SXSW and more. Govinda’s music has been licensed on shows like WB’s “Roswell,” MTV’s “Road Rules,” and Bravo’s “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” as well as many independent films.
The Govinda live show immerses the audience with a textured atmosphere of exotic, dubby vibrations interwoven with cosmic visual projections, world class dancers and mesmerizing vocals- all to the magic of his live electronics and violin.
::: Benny Loco w/ Ravenna :::
Benny Loco produces atypical, melodic, break-your-neck electronic music. His beats take many left-field turns and often defy expectations. Benny Loco is rarely trying to do what your favorite producers are trying to do, but chances are he may replace your long held favorites before you even realize what has happened….
When cellist Ravenna Michalsen joins him on stage and in the studio, sparks fly! The pair produce gorgeous, densely layered, downtempo tracks that leave listeners begging for more. The unlikely duo provide an equal workout for your ears, brain, and dancing shoes. To the beat lovers: pay attention.
::: Cryptex :::
Hailing from Los Angeles, California – Cryptex is a 18 year old glitch hop producer who’s taking the glitch scene by storm. From his glitchy beats, to his mind slaying synths, he is a force to be reckoned with.
His first LP, “Isolated Incidents” was released in 2011 with much excitement and accolades..

::: Of the Trees :::
“Of the Trees” is Tyler Coombs; electronic music producer hailing from Portland, Maine. Melding strong influences from hip hop, downtempo, and EDM – Of the Trees has crafted his own special blend of bass-heavy beats that keep the listening (and live) experience full of surprising twists and turns. At just 21 years old and currently in his first year of performing live – Of the Trees has made a significant impact on the East Coast bass music scene and isn’t slowing down any time soon.
Noteworthy achievements and performances include: multiple showcases at SXSW 2012; headlining Maine’s Kahbang Festival alongside artists such as Bassnectar and Paper Diamond; and opening for artists such as Figure, Kraddy, RJD2, Kill the Noise, Conspirator, Opiuo, Tycho, Minnesota and many more internationally known acts. 2012 proved to be a year of emergence – with Tyler playing shows and festivals throughout the North East and as far South as Texas; in 2013 he hopes to break through and travel across the United States making his mark with his special blend of experimental/psychedelic bass music. Citing influences from fellow bass music producers such as Mimosa, MartyParty, and Joker – to as far as Flying Lotus, Nosaj Thing, Hudson Mohawke, and Aphex Twin; Of the Trees brings a cerebral and soulful touch to heavy, danceable beats.
