Wilder Gonzales Agreda (native from Los Olivos, North Lima, Peru) begun his music career in 1995 with his first band Avalonia (with Fernando Ponce, Fabián Escalante and Óscar Pita) and, after the brokenhearted split of this early avatar, with Fractal (alongside Wilmer Ruiz and Hugo Medina). Both groups were part of the new peruvian avantgarde history born with the post-rocker and ethereal scene known as Crisálida Sónica.
In 2003 Gonzales Agreda started the independent neo-psychedelic label Superspace Records and since the 00's has taken part on projects like El Conejo de Gaia, Azucena Kántrix (with Christian Galarreta), The Electric Butterflies (with Roger W. Terrones), The Peruvian Red Rockets (with Luis Durand), Martelenor (with Juan Roldán and Hugo Medina) amongst others.
He has been pursuing a musical ethos that makes him one of the most interesting sound artists from Peru today. Gonzales Agreda has released more than 60 discs by now, on his own label and on other ones across the world like Clinical Archives (Russia), Ruidemos (Spain), TibProd (Poland), Limitada (Argentina), Tape Safe (Belgium), Aloardí (Peru), etc. His music work has received outstanding reviews by such cool magazines like The Wire (U.K.), Rock de Lux (Spain), Decoder (U.S.A.), Vital Weekly (Netherlands), Go-Mag (Spain), Loop.cl (Chile), Losing Today (Italy), etc.
In 2014 he put out the album "Lima Norte Metamúsica" (Superspace Records, 2014) with the artwork done by the inimitable neo-psychedelic painter Anthony Ausgang that has received great critics from the press and begun 2015 with the release of a free download computer music single entitled "Música Anticorrupción". 2016 saw the release of "Scala Mega Hertz" and "Polykroma EP". Recently he has put a new album entitled "Paraísos, Revoluciones y Tú" (2017).

An Old Friend is an upcoming Alternative Rock band based out of Long Island, New York, they have been said to be significantly ahead of most contemporary peers in their stylistic niche; they show an ability to stray from the norm and focus on truly innovative fragments, as opposed to one linear hook yearning for radioplay.
Kilmanjaro is a unique and emerging 4-piece from Toronto, performing the densely layered and immersive electronic compositions of Kaan Gunesberk and Ian Culley. Two drummers Luke Graves and Ryan Macdonald weave through interlocking parts to create a bed of driving rhythm that sits underneath lush synth textures and dream-like vocal melodies. Culley and Gunesberk are both active songwriters and musicians outside of Kilmanjaro, with Culley contributing songwriting efforts to Daniel Caesar’s “Get You” and Gunesberk adapting his signature vocals on Drake’s “Right Hand.”
In January 2017, they released their debut LP A Place Unknown To All You Ever Say under NYK records. The album explores a spectrum of lofty and grimy textures amongst Gunesberk’s ethereal vocals, invoking feelings of a nocturnal daydream as he reflects on the different manifestation of his personality and relationships around him.
The band's thoughts on the song:
“This song is the climax point in the album. All the feelings conveyed throughout the album come to this point of realization. There’s a lot of tension in the first half of the song. But it reaches a point where you’re freed from that prison of emotion that’s been holding you for the whole album. There’s this sense of awakening.”

On Saturday, May 20, multi-instrumentalist and lauded bass player Erik Kramer released his debut studio endeavor, an EP entitled ‘Missed the Boat.’ The Brooklyn-based musician has an especially eclectic sound, one that employs the talent of a slew of musicians: saxophone, trombone, viola, trumpet, back-up vocalists - they’re all there. An experimental record through and through, ‘Missed the Boat’ is an indie record quite unlike anything else that’s come across my desk in recent months.
The Great Long Distance is an audible recollection of the first 12 months of a long distance relationship, including the highs and lows and moments in between. It is a journal without words, each of the 12 tracks representing each month respectively. Inspired by the format of NIN's "Ghosts I-IV", the album is a sonic tapestry of different moods and themes, with various recurring motifs and the subtle melding of synthesizer and samples; the result something not quite classical, ambient or electronic - rather, an eclectic blend of the three. For fans of Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm and later Ulver
