STEVE TEEPS | http://www.facebook.com/steveteeps
Steve Teeple (Teeps, DoubleDrop) is a DJ and digital artist formerly from Milwaukee, currently residing in the the city of Oakland, CA. His work explores the continuously developing relationship between sight and sound, bordering on the surreal, and challenging his viewers perspective Inspired by video game culture, sci-fi, and comics, Steve gives us a glimpse of what it may be like to not just see and hear within our normal range, but to push our senses to see beyond standard limitations and witness a glimpse of the otherworldly. Steve and Mrhorror were the force behind END OF DAZE, a monthly event at the now closed Redroom which brought us a night of forward thinking music from around the world.

ADOPTAHIGHWAY | http://www.facebook.com/pages/adoptahighway/107399444772
adoptahighway is the moniker of classically trained music producer Barry Paul Clark. Throughout his years of formal music training and receiving a bachelor’s degree in classical performance, Clark devoted time and efforts to his electronic compositions. The formal training helped Clark in developing a unique sound with knowledge of classical theory, harmony and composition techniques. While drawing inspiration from romantic era to minimalist composers, Clark also gathers inspiration from patterns of thought and memory, physical and non-physical relationships, and using objects to represent an idea or emotion, which is how the moniker of adoptahighway was chosen. Using controllers and performance software, his live shows are energetic, emotive, engaging and honest. Clark firmly believes that, rather than tag genres or artists to his music to give a predetermined expectation, listeners should be encouraged to open their ears and try to find their own connection to the sound.
