Santigold
Santigold
Santigold is a survivor of a half century worth of living along musical evolution's most cutting edges. The only live act that can boast of having out-aged Barbara Bush, having outlived Mr. Miyagi and out styled Liberace, Santigold is here with future flavor.

Composed of absolutely no members, Santigold is also the first musical outfit capable of claiming the planet's broiling collective consciousness as their front woman. Longtime collaborator, singer and songwriter Santi White says of her work with Santigold, "We began trying to write pop songs to sell, which made us depressed, so we started writing songs for ourselves instead."

This is better than good; this is gold— SANTIGOLD
Spank Rock
Spank Rock
Naeem Juwan AKA Spank Rock draws immediate influence from the Baltimore Bass movement. He met with the Diplo-helmed Hollertronix crew and began crafting the type of live performances that have become underground legend in the early 2000s. With production partner Alex "XXXChange" Epton, he released the seminal LP YoYoYoYoYo on UK label Big Dada in 2006, the album that many credit as the progenitor of the electro/rap/booty phenomenon. Since then Spank Rock has toured with everyone from Beck to Bjork to the Beastie Boys, made records with Santigold, KylieMinogue, Mark Ronson and Mos Def, and remains one of the most enigmatic and electrifying performers in music today. His sophomore album,Everything is Boring and Everyone is a Fucking Liar, which is almost entirely produced by Boyz Noise and features a litany of guest talent includingBig Freedia, Santigold and Mark Ronson, will be released September 27th, 2011 on his own imprint, Bad Blood Records.
