This Canadian group made waves as the first unsigned group to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone. Now they are on a non-stop summer tour as they work to release their next full-length record. I’m hoping to see these guys move up to the main stage next year.
Even though I almost blew out my eardrums at Big G at Waka last year, they were still one of the highlights of the festival. Now with a main stage spot and a sexy new set-up, these guys are definitely going to outdo themselves.
Opiuo is dopio. Bad puns aside he is seriously one of my favorite up-and-coming electronic acts and I am sure I am not the only one. Even if you only get over to the Satellite stage once he whole weekend, go see this wub-dub glitch master at work.
If an old Louisiana blues musician, Oriental folk instruments, and a West-African drum circle where in some kind of crazy musical orgy, it would probably make a sound like Toubab Krewe. Then again what else would you expect from a group on the Nat Geo Music label?
These guys drop some down and dirty rub-a-dubstep that will keep you from feeling clean for weeks. Strap on your bass face and check em’ out Sunday afternoon at The Untz Satellite Stage.
