Damn Right!
Damn Right!
Damn Right! formed onstage at the legendary Baltimore venue, the 8X10. The members of the band immediately noticed a distinct chemistry and so did The 8X10. Over the next few years the 8X10 took Damn Right! under it's wing and allowed them to nurture their sound through seasonal residencies. These residencies helped the band to refine their signature sound through countless hours of improvisational dance music to the willing ears of Baltimore natives - who know a good party when they see it!

Since the birth of Damn Right! in 2007, the band has been performing all over the great United States of America. On its beaches, mountain tops, festival stages, and some of the most renown clubs and theaters to grace this great land. Throughout their adventures, Damn Right! has had some of the worlds most talented musicians sit in and record with the them including Aron Magner and Jon Gutwillig of the Disco Biscuits, Marco Benevento of the Benevento/Russo Duo, Billy Martin of Medeski Martin & Wood, Clay Parnell of Brothers Past, legendary drummer Johnny Rabb, and Bernie Worrell of P-Funk and The Talking Heads. These players add to the rich, sonic, fabric Damn Right! creates in a live setting.

Presently, Damn Right! finds drummer/producer/designer Tommy Bradel and bassist/producer Johnny Fissinger living in Philadelphia where they create music day in and day out. Their ever evolving signature sound is full of electronic breaks, hip hop samples, and pop synths which drive every show to be a full on dance party with special guests joining the group in a live setting.
While Philadelphia by way of Connecticut musician/producer FLOTE's recent releases have seen strong support from listeners and bloggers around the globe, FLOTE (a member of the Altered Ego Collective) has really been generating his biggest buzz on the stage. Best described by one writer as "Drawing from hip-hop and experimental electronic music FLOTE's live show creates a high-energy, chromed-out robo-sexual stew, balancing atmospheric attention to detail sure to please any audiophile with a spellbinding, frenetic live MPD performance that works crowds into a frenzy", his live show is certainly something special. Having played everywhere from electronic festivals/venues such as Camp Bisco, Club Love and Wonderbar to underground warehouse beat battles, FLOTE certainly feels at home in almost any live setting.
Digital Beat Down
Digital Beat Down
Digital Beat Down is a live electronica duo that fuses synthetic
textures and organic instrumentation to create dance friendly
compositions with a prog-rock twist. The distinctive feature of
Digital Beat Down is their ability to draw on the ethos of the DJ
culture while still providing the intangible live band experience. The
duo thrives on creating carefully crafted songs and multi-layered live
looping jams that invite the listener on a psychetronic journey
through the depths of dirty Drum & Bass, to smooth Deep House, to
Crackin' Breaks, or finished off by their bone penetrating brand of
sub bass driven Dub-Step funk.

The duo was formed in Denver, CO in the fall of 2008, by Andrew Lubner
on (drums and samples) and Nick Pilz on (synths, samples and loops).
Digital Beat Down is a high energy attack. Lubner mounts a relentless
assault on the drums and sampler pad, and Pilz thumps the low end
while he warps and weaves the dark melodies and subtle textures that
define the band. In their first year, Digital Beat Down broke in to
the Denver/Boulder scene and successfully toured throughout Oklahoma,
Arkansas, Illinois, and Wisconsin. With explosive live shows and a
tenacious drive, the band is poised to explode on to the national
scene and beyond.
