Milo
Milo
Milo is one of many vehicles of Rory Ferreira. There is also Scallops Hotel, the citadel of self-sufficiency where Ferreira produces and demos. Here there is always vacancy for free thinkers. Ferreira reinstates leadership into rap music. His self-sufficiency extends beyond self-interest. This is the purpose of Ruby Yacht, his imprint and flagship. Ruby Yacht prints, it presses, it manufactures, and it does not outsource. It is a guild of builders. As a philosophy undergrad, milo toiled in the late evening over his debut, a split EP entitled Things That Happen At Day // Things That Happen At Night. The project was picked up by the Los Angeles imprint Hellfyre Club and led to a brotherhood.


Ferreira dropped out of school and moved to LA to record the Dorner Vs Tookie compilation with his newly minted crew of Open Mike Eagle, Nocando, and Busdriver. The crew dissolved around the release of milo’s full length debut, A Toothpaste Suburb, in 2014. Before milo moved to Milwaukee to till his own garden, he linked up with producer Kenny Segal to record the collaborative album So The Flies Don’t Come. Flies was a watershed pivot for milo. He may have declared himself the lazy theologian, but Flies was a eulogy to his mistaken identity of nerd rapper. He honored the old gods by not tolerating. His most recent album Who Told You To Think? has been his most celebrated record to date, growing off the direction established on Flies and explored in his Scallops Hotel tapes.
Free Cake For Every Creature
Free Cake For Every Creature
Free Cake For Every Creature is a soft pop band currently based in Philadelphia. Beginning in upstate New York in 2012 as the recording project of songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Katie Bennett, the band has since expanded to include a rotating cast of friends and musicians.

For the newest collection of songs, “The Bluest Star,” Kate, long-term band members Francis Lyons and Heeyon Won, and many friends spent the second half of 2017 slowly recording tracks in various rooms in Katie and Francis’ apartment on a busy street in West Philly. While these songs are a return to Katie’s comfortable home-recording beginnings, they also lay the foundation for a growing project based on collaboration, experimentation, and intentional arrangements. With specificity and honesty, Bennett sings about friendship, love present and past, and the painful process of letting people out of her life.
Tron And DVD
Tron And DVD
TRØN And DVD are a rap duo from the suburbs of New York. Their most recent release, Afraid of the Dark is an ambitious and furiously creative coming of age story about two brothers. And it's a true story, one that keeps a keen focus on family life, the importance of being an individual, and the pursuit of a dream. It explores the struggle to navigate and balance it all, seen through the specific lens of being young black men in America. Written and recorded over the past two years (with all initial tracks recorded and produced by TRØN), Afraid of the Dark was co-produced by TRØN, Tom Beaujour and Kiam Records-owner and labelmate Jennifer O’Connor (who is a also a guest vocalist & co-writer on "So Far Throne") at Nuthouse Recording in Hoboken NJ. Another Kiam Records labelmate, Amy Bezunartea is a guest vocalist and co-writer on the opening track "Regeneration" and the duo's brother Lynk is a featured rapper and co-writer on "The Three-Headed Beast".
DUMP HIM
DUMP HIM
Self-described as “massachusetts gay pop tunes made by some punks” DUMP HIM is a political powerhouse of performance and personal grit. Their 2017 release ‘Venus in Gemini’ explores the various degrees of personal interaction and inaction involved in performance - where we stand, how we interact, who we are. Their most recent 2018 release, ‘Venus in Retrograde’, confronts the realities of recording and touring; growing and learning. DUMP HIM both acknowledges and expands on the gap of space that diy both fills and perpetuates - the gnawing alienation of an artist in the perceived or fantasized “underground”. Out of this, they tell us “it’s fine to be a little messy”, advocating for openness with thick guitars and anthemic vocals.
Kilamanzego
Kilamanzego
Self-described as a “androgynous weirdo with a musical axe to grind,” Kilamanzego (pronounced “kill-a-man’s-ego”) is a Philly-based producer creating delightfully freeform, experimental hip-hop with a variety of traditional and new-wave influences.
