Opia
Opia
Opia is an indie electronic group consisting of Cole Citrenbaum (vocals/guitar), DJ Stanfill (vocals/keys), and colorthought (producer). The band formed after meeting at Yale University in 2016 and launching the viral hit "Falling". "Falling", which was recorded in a dormitory studio, quickly rocketed to the top of Hype Machine and Spotify's Viral Charts. In July 2017, Opia released their debut EP Faded, which garnered support from Spotify New Music Friday, BBC Radio 1, TIME Magazine, and more. Last year, the band, which tours as a two-piece live set, completed full US tours supporting Marian Hill and Whethan. Recently, Opia featured on singles with Whethan (Atlantic), Ekali (OWSLA), and Louis Futon (Foreign Family). The group is currently gearing up for the release of their second EP alongside a headline tour in the summer.
Pleasure Curses
Pleasure Curses is an post-disco duo based out of Portland Oregon.

The creative and production partnership consists of Jahn Alexander Teetsov and Evan Maxwell Grice; childhood friends who reconnected after a decade through a chance meeting.

Formed in Washington DC, they sharpened their teeth playing everywhere from sweat-soaked punk basements and raging house parties to five star hotels and national art galleries in the city. Influenced by the aesthetics of electro, disco, new wave, and early hip-hop, they strafe the lines between experimental and accessible dance music that shatters the apathy of audiences at shows with manic and propulsive energy. Recently, that energy has propelled them to the west coast where they are currently located in Portland, Oregon.
Leo Islo
Leo Islo
Leo Islo is the stage persona of Producer/ Singer/ Songwriter Matt Pahler. Born in Santiago, Chile, raised in Flagstaff, AZ, and now a transplant in Pacific Northwest city of Portland, OR, Pahler has amassed an eclectic mix of audio and visual inspiration from the world around him. His wanderlust is prominently displayed in his use of retro-soaked synths, ethereal pop vocals, warm guitar lines, and analog driven beats. Islo's lyrics often focus on introspection, ephemeral mortality, and fleeting nostalgia, shifting between lo-fi pop, house, and chillwave seamlessly.
