Cygnus (USA) is an electronic musician based in Texas. His influences include electro (to the tune of Man Parrish, Drexciya, ERP, and DMX Krew), IDM and experimental hardcore bass, and more. His 2015 tour with legendary Manchester act Autechre took him around the United States for 30 days. In 2016 he toured Europe, playing alongside the likes of Gerald Donald, DJ Stingray, DMX Krew, Team Doyobi, and Sync24. His technical approach mixes the versatility of software with the touch and feel of hardware to create a timeless mixture of electronic beats and melody.
“Cygnus has been making waves in the Dallas electronic music scene since his first live appearance over a decade ago, but his music has consistently made greater impact in the international community with releases on various Japanese and British labels. Cygnus’ tunes have even popped up on the charts and mixes of respected techno legend Dave Clarke.” -Wanz Dover

MATTIE is an experimental vocalist from Dallas, TX. She began singing melodies at age four, developing her own concepts of notation and structure. In church she learned the basis of conventional gospel music. MATTIE used this foundation to land touring and recording gigs with Israel Houghton and New Breed, and The Black and Blue. With a love for all cultures and religions MATTIE has adapted several different styles of music to create a sound that is uniquely hers.
