Tsuruda
Tsuruda
Thomas Jay Tsuruda (born August 9, 1991) was immersed in music as soon as he could read. Starting with piano as a child, and with violin and vocal lessons soon to follow, he is no stranger to classical training and the self discipline that comes with it. Tsuruda attended a classical music school from kindergarten to 8th grade, and spent his childhood experimenting with every instrument he could get his hands on. Due to his early involvement with music, it comes as no surprise that Thomas fell into the world of producing at the young age of fifteen.

With influences like Madlib and Flying Lotus, Tsuruda's style is diverse, elegant, and complex. Disregarding all genres, he isn't afraid to push the boundaries of electronic bass and hip hop music. His live sets are always a unique surprise and have taken him around North America sharing the stage with some of the biggest names in the game. Tsuruda made his Vancouver debut with Ekali and High Klassified in May, 2015, shortly after his legendary sunrise set at Emissions Music Festival with G Jones and Slow Magic. He's also no stranger in the Bay Area of California, holding down stages with Penthouse Penthouse, Sweater Beats, Zeke Beats, Mikos Da Gawd, Woolymammoth and many more. He's headlined shows and other festivals such as Infrasound across the Midwest. You can also catch Tsuruda spin every week at his Friday night weekly in Hollywood, Ca at the club Dirty Laundry.

Tsuruda is now more focused on producing music than ever. His distinctive style is making big waves with 5 full length self releases under his belt and many other singles on various labels [Darker Than Wax, Team Supreme]

Organik
Organik
Organik has run rampant in the Atlanta scene for many years thanks to his expertise in sound engineering, his pristine studio productions, and his live mixing ability. A technical master, he always returns to his base as a storyteller and does not solely rely on tricks and trends. Technique is nothing without sincerity, and Organik consistently shows us he has a firm handle on both. In October 2013 he released "Skunk Burna" and "Chalk" with much praise on the Portland based label Phantom Hertz. Since then he has been focused on the dark and minimal sounds that have put him on lineups at some of the most respected underground bass events in the country. In 2015 his team up with DJ Variant on the "Thunder Roll EP", which featured remixes from heavyweights The Widdler & Matt Deco, hit #3 on the Juno Deep Dubstep charts and #6 in the overall Grime and Dubstep albums. In 2015 Organik also premiered Versed; a digital label with partners Quickie Mart and Unicorn Fukr which has been receiving stellar reviews with their first two releases. Versed will be dropping a compilation in 2016 featuring a mix of producers from the U.S. and across the world. You can also catch Organik’s monthly radio show on the U.K.’s famous Sub.FM broadcasting the second Monday of each month from 7-9PM EST. Over the years this show has become an outlet for premiering new artists and testing out new productions. This “from the hip” approach to broadcasting has made Organik Radio one of the more popular shows on Sub.FM with listenership well into the hundreds and archives logging over 10k plays collectively in just over a year. His natural team up with Sub.Mission agency in 2015 also made him the first artist in Atlanta to be represented by this prestigious Denver based agency. Poised to grow the what has been coined by Truth as the “Deep Dark & Dangerous” sound in the southeast, Organik will be gracing some of the biggest lineups in this years festival season and has become many headliners preferred support for sound system culture based club events in the southeast.
