Music by:

PETE LAWRENCE, (The Big Chill, www.bigchill.net) London.
Chill out, deep beatz, ambient.

Pete plays at Deep Space with Francois K at Cielo December 12th.

QPE, (the Agriculture, www.qpe.info) New York.
Hip hop nouveau, downtempo - LIVE.

Kacy Wiggins a/k/a quiet personal electronics (qpe) is a subtly profound composer whose reputation as a live performer and soulful soother of the frenetic New Yorker has earned him a solid following. His music takes off from instrumental hip-hop, stealthily skirting the no-fly zones of excessive complexity and over-production around much of IDM and trip hop, to land in a new sonic terrain: Hip Hop Nouveau.

NATURAL SPHERE, (the Agriculture, www.naturalsphere.com) New York. Ambient jungle, glitch hop, post-IDM.

Cali surfer beach urchin bed room producer and DJ, Natural Sphere, found his musical roots while working with Silent Records in San Francisco. After moving to New York in the mid nineties he would often be found tearing up rugged rooftop beatz and shredding classic ambient B Sides while rinsing out some of the most spectacular after hour events of the silicone alley dot.com bubble.
