Artists
The Avalanches
On their groundbreaking debut, Since I Left You, The Avalanches presented the world with a totally unique sound, crafted by meticulously combining over 3,500 vinyl samples. This approach set a precedent for dance music, inspiring a whole generation of musicians and producers. Released in Australia in 2000 and in the U.S. and the U.K. in 2001, Since I Left You is now regarded as a modern classic, It was named one of the year’s best albums by critics around the world and later placed in the Top 10 of Pitchfork’s Top 200 Albums of the 2000s and in the Top 20 of Rolling Stone’s Greatest EDM Albums of All Time. The video for the title track won Best Video at the 2001 MTV Europe Music Awards and was named as one of the top music videos of the 2000s by Pitchfork.
 
The release and subsequent touring in support of Since I Left You was followed by a 16-year radio silence, which was broken with the release of The Avalanches’ sophomore album, Wildflower (Astralwerks). It debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Vinyl Albums chart and atop the Australian Albums chart in 2016. Wildflower earned six ARIA Award nominations and international acclaim, with The Guardian hailing it as "a joyous journey" and Pitchfork proclaiming it “better than just about any music ever made” and “an album that could have been made by nobody but the Avalanches.”
Their highly acclaimed third full length album 'We Will Always Love You' was released Dec 11, 2020 and has received worldwide critical acclaim. It’s an album for music lovers that many are calling their album of the year.
 
Klangstof

Amsterdam-based alternative act Klangstof is comprised of musicians Koen van de Wardt, Wannes Salomé, and Erik Buschmann. The band first made waves with their debut LP, Closed Eyes To Exit, a majestic confluence of synth-pop, post-rock, and electronic music. Ever since, they have swiftly risen the ranks as one of the most promising European exports, becoming the first Dutch artist to perform at both Coachella and Bonnaroo. After touring with MIIKE SNOW, Jagwar Ma and The Flaming Lips, the EP Everest stretched the band's dynamics even further, relishing in wayward experimentalism with synths and flirtations with big pop hooks.
