London-based Ryan Lee West (aka Rival Consoles) has been celebrated for his ability to tell stories without words and he “has made a career out of evoking human emotions with digital sounds.” (Pitchfork). Since becoming the first signing on classical-electronic record label Erased Tapes (Nils Frahm, Penguin Cafe Orchestra, Peter Broderick), Rival Consoles has enjoyed widespread critical acclaim for his immersive electronic soundscapes. He has released four highly acclaimed albums and his most recent release, “Persona,” inspired by the Ingmar Bergman film of the same name, was dubbed “a truly “arthouse” album that begs repeated revisiting” (AV Club). Rival Consoles will take the stage at 9:15 PM with a live A/V performance.
John Tejada, one of techno’s most acclaimed producers, and a revered mainstay in the Los Angeles electronic music scene. Born in Vienna and based in Los Angeles, Tejada has released 13 albums; his most recent, “Dead Start Program,” came out in March. Tejada has remixed dozens of acts including The Postal Service, Télépopmusic, The Field, Bomb The Bass, Way Out West, Kevin Saunderson, Underworld’s Darren Emerson, Gui Boratto, and Simian Mobile Disco and has performed at clubs and festivals across the globe. Tejada will appear at 8:15 PM.
Tottie, (aka Lottie Moore) is originally from England and spent the last decade in London and Barcelona before relocating to Los Angeles. She co-founded the highly successful Track Family weekly radio show on Barcelona City FM and has spent the last 6 years DJing Barcelona’s hippest parties and events. She recently created a special show for Sonar Festival focusing on pioneering female creative talent. Tottie will kick things off at 7:30 PM.
