Lorna Dune is the stage name of Lorna Krier, a virtuosic performer of "New Music" (think: classical music that is still being written), particularly in the Minimalist tradition, serving as a founder of several chamber style ensembles and a keyboardist/synthesist in numerous Brooklyn-based electronic music bands/collectives/groups of people making sound together. Her work with composer Missy Mazzoli in the quintet Victoire on the record "Cathedral City" was named "One of the top 10 classical albums of 2010" by NPR and "one of 2010 most memorable albums" by The New Yorker magazine.
When he wasn’t watching Yo MTV Raps or Pump It up, Scarub, like many other L.A. hip-hop heads, grew up listening to the all hip-hop radio station, KDAY. It wasduring these early years that Scarub first gave himself the name Quaz (The kid who did), and later Mudd Foot, before settling on Scarub as his mc moniker. Scarub first hit the stage during an 8th grade talent show and he hasn’t looked back since. As a student at L.A.’s Hamilton High, Scarub hooked up with fellow students Eligh and Murs and the trio formed the 3 Meloncholy Gypsy’s or 3MG. Scarub like the rest of 3MG eventually made the move up to the bay area where he hooked up with Mystik Journeymen and was put down with the Living Legends crew.
Having always commanded a sizable online following, Rafa Alvarez aka Different Sleep has functioned in a uniquely digital context since emerging as an artist to look out for, showing off an innate ability to find the equilibrium between progressive sonics and universal emotion. On 1/27/17, the Los Angeles-based artist will release his debut ‘Forget It’ LP, featuring Alfarez's vocal debut and guest spots from IDEH, Vanessa Elisha, Jarell Perry, Angelina Lucero and Deebs. Having forged an initial path on two essential EPs for FoF, ‘Forget It’ is a multifaceted affair, a composition that demands repeat front-to-back listens while existing on a distinctly pop level. It’s a record with constantly shifting contours and an array of talented guests, but Alvarez is always at the center, either subtly manipulating from the background or taking the mic himself. Self-serious music with heart is often hard to come by in the electronic music world and 'Forget It' is both and more.
