Genre: Indietronica, death disco, synthwave (Curated by Do206)
Duo Jordan Hatzialexiou and Matt Ogle have been prominent players in the local scene since forming initially as a DJ group in 2012. Nowadays, the group is producing original tracks, booking live performances, and opening for artists such as The Knocks, Hot Chip, and Toro y Moi. It’s difficult to categorize their sound into a specific genre, because it varies from track to track. Somewhere between racing an aircraft in space to dancing at an underground dark disco is where you’ll find the sounds of CUFF LYNX.
“We bring elements and samples from disco and 70s dance music out of the grave and try to give them new life with the current technology we have access to. The term “death disco” also alludes to it having an evil aspect. We take a lot of inspiration from groups like Power Glove, Oliver, and Justice that bring in dark cinematic references in to their music while holding on to their disco inspirations.”

Genre: Global Bass (Curated by Do604 & Do250)
This Vancouver trio perfectly blends the bass heavy sounds dance music fans of the PNW love with global beats, thus, the name of their chosen genre, Global Bass. DSC recently played overseas at the Bali Spirit Festival and we’re hoping they brought back plenty of world music beats to incorporate in their set. The group members pride themselves as children of immigrants, and express their diverse upbringing through the music they produce. So what are we expecting from their set? Trap tunes, exotic rhythms, diverse lyrics, and of course, bass, bass, bass.
