Will Eastman [DC]
Washington, DC-based DJ and producer Will Eastman is one third of the group Volta Bureau (along with Outputmessage and Micah Vellian) and co-owner of U Street Music Hall, named by the Washington Post “best dance club in the region.” The Washington Post named him “one of DC’s titan DJs” and DJ authority Discobelle called him “a new force to be reckoned with.” Eastman’s original tracks and remixes have received support from a wide range of DJs and media coverage from BBC Radio 1 and NPR, among many others.
Archie Pelago is a production and live performance trio based in Brooklyn, NY. Formed in late 2010, the trio of Hirshi (trumpet/DJ), Cosmo D (cello/Ableton) and Kroba (sax/Ableton) combine their varied backgrounds in jazz and classical music with a common love for rhythm and the wide-open possibilities of electronic music. In the studio, the three produce collectively and prominently feature their instruments, lending deeply emotive patterns and textures to their tracks. On the stage, the group innovatively combines DJ-style performance with live playing and processing of their instruments, conjuring singular renditions of their original works as well as music that inspires them.
On September 24th, 2013, Archie Pelago released their latest EP, Hall of Human Origins on the Brooklyn-based Styles Upon Styles label. This follows their first two releases on their own label, Archie Pelago Music, the Sly Gazabo EP and the Breezy Whey / Backflight 12”, which received critical acclaim in Spin, Resident Advisor, DJMag, Tsugi and XLR8R, collectively. Their single Avocado Roller was featured on Pitchfork and was included on NPR’s Heavy Rotation series. Current radio support includes NPR, KCRW, KEXP, WFMU, WBAR, WNYU, Solid Steel, Mary Anne Hobbs, and Gilles Peterson. Current sponsorships include Ableton and Focusrite Novation.
Archie Pelago can currently be heard on Resident Advisor’s podcast #RA.370 and recently performed at the 10th anniversary of Decibel Festival in Seattle, WA. Look out for several new releases in 2014, including the Lakeside Obelisk EP and a full length collaborative record with Grenier.
