Zenizen
Zenizen
Created by Opal Hoyt who was born in Alaska and raised between Vermont, Jamaica, Washington DC and Brooklyn. She's infatuated with writing songs and creating musical landscapes with an emphasis on all things soulful. Since heading to Australia for the second time to write/record the band's debut EP, she has been back in New York simultaneously playing shows and working on the band's "vaguely seasonal" full-length album--due in 2017. Minnie Riperton, Mariah Carey, and London Nu-jazz is where she came from and ended up. She is committed to modern psychedelia, poetry, and groove.
Pruven
Pruven
With a sound that can best be described as quintessential hip hop, Pruven delivers thought-provoking, razor-sharp lyrics that just might cause folks to stop nodding their heads long enough to write an e-mail to their Congressman. The Connecticut-based emcee brings a soulful respect of hip hop’s heyday to the present-day scene, leaving listeners wondering why they haven't been listening to Pruven for years.

With a wide array of influences that span multiple musical genres, Pruven’s style is challenging. He takes on topics from hip hop's poli-tricks, the wonders of ancient history, space and religion to the Illuminati and a one-world government. Simply put, his eloquent lines will make you think and hit repeat to listen closely to what he’s saying.
WRISTS
WRISTS
Bass-heavy, nasty, noisy electro hiphop mayhem. WRISTS is loud, abrasive, and political.

WRISTS was born out of a track from a little known project in 2012 called Patient Zero between Shep and Canadian producer, Waatu. Turtle Handz laid down the vocals on the opening tune and a friendship was sparked, fuelled by a mutual love of the noisier side of electronica. Discussions took place, beats were made, ideas were passed back and forth between the UK and US, and eventually WRISTS was born.

Shep's origins in music start with the bass, performing in a mix of rock/metal and electronica acts. His passion has for a long time been effects pedals and signal processing. His fascination of the noisier side of music is what pushed him to develop his electronic production skills, which is now his primary focus, working as a mixing and mastering engineer, and producing electronic music, with an aggressive-bass edge.

Turtle Handz has been spitting bars since time began, both as a solo artist, and in a multitude of collaborative projects. His interest in left-field hiphop pushed him into live use of pitch shifters, and electronic sounds, constantly experimenting with splicing traditional styles with out-there ideas. TH's lyrics are political, meaningful, and aggressive... A signature aspect of the WRISTS sound.
