A member of The Coda Sound family, Josh Leibsohn produces a style that is refreshing and melodic. Often incorporating his dreamy beats with angelic vocals from the likes of Ariana Grande, Lorde, and Mariah Manser (also performing at Upstream), his music is bound to leave you in a dreamlike trance. The Seattle native is no stranger to the local music scene, and has opened for big name artists such as Purity Ring and Autograf.

Producer, entrepreneur, and mentor, Jake Crocker is one of a kind. With a deep and rich musical history producing for Seattle hip-hop artists such as Raz Simone, Crocker has recently embarked on a solo project. His first release gained attention from well-known music blog Run The Trap, and has us itching for more. His style perfectly blends aspects of several dance music genres to create a unique sound. Featuring Melodic chord progressions paired with hard-hitting bass, the tunes of Jake Crocker are most comparable to those of Flume. We’re looking forward to his set at Upstream, but if for some reason you miss out, you can catch him performing this August at Summer Meltdown.
