ANIMA! are a alternative electronic duo formed of the best parts of Arielle Vakni and Vicente Espi who originate from California and South Africa. Their enchantingly iconic vocal and unique cerebral beat boutique has fast become a favorite alternative indie electronic alongside their inspirations like Sylvan Esso and Little Dragon who first inspired their formation.
Monogem is the moniker under which singer/songwriter Jen Hirsh blends her own new wave of sultry with ethereal alt-pop. In the cosmos, a monogem ring is a supernova remnant, the leftover glow from an exploded star. One of the largest monogem rings in the universe is located near the Gemini and Cancer constellations. Born in late June, Jen is on the cusp of Gemini-Cancer, and thus, Monogem rang true and stuck.
Zigtebra is a Chicago-based lo-fi synth pop duo; spooky tones, deep synthesizer beats and crystal-clear vocals full of emotion and desire - something trance-like and pure.
