Lykanthea
Lykanthea is Lakshmi Ramgopal. With lyrics rooted in ancient mythologies, a haunting voice smoked in cave-like reverb and the gauzy drone of synths, Ramgopal writes the soundtrack of thresholds. Drawing on a decade of Carnatic vocal training, Ramgopal's debut EP Migration was released in 2014 to praise from Noisey, MTV Iggy and Impose, which writes, “[Lykanthea] sings hymns of the ancients in a tale that breaks against oppressive hands to expressions and emotions that emerge from behind the veil” (IMPOSE). Her sound is ritual chanting for the electronic age.
Rasplyn
Rasplyn
Rasplyn is the solo project of Carolyn O’Neill who uses her experience with classical composition and film to create mystical and visual landscapes with her music. Her music is dark, but beautiful and filled with textured layers influenced by world culture and fantasy. Her style is transforming as she experiments with adding vocal elements into the environments she creates.
Scott Cortez
Scott Cortez
Scott Cortez is a textural guitarist and visual artist based in Chicago, also known as part of ambient/shoegazing band Lovesliescrushing… In this era of non-destructive computer editing, Cortez chooses to eschew the popular digital means of capturing his music and instead embraces a minimalist lo-fi aesthetic by limiting himself to guitars, looping pedals and four track cassette recorders.

Tyler Etters
Tyler Etters
Tyler Etters plays #shadow_fi: a self-defined genre and rough approximation of ambient post-rock blended with drone and lo-fi. Etters's uniquely 21st century practice encompasses a range of mediums including music, analog photography, artware, and video. His divergent and esoteric discography has steadily grown since 2005 and most recently been supplemented with a cycle of releases including 'the geometrie of our lost cause', 'blue, the most celestial color', and 'senescence'. He is a founding musician of the collective Endless Field Studios, the solo project Connectedness Locus, and the experiemental outfit Everything Comes in Cycles; Everything Fades in Shades. When the stars find it agreeable, live performances and studio sessions include a mutable band known only as 'the northern information movement'. The usual suspects include Arthur Zdrinc - the accomplished musician, painter, actor, and drummer of Sioum, Adam Moore - the iconoclastic musician with a penchant for guitar, the avant garde, and simpler times and Paul Petrosyan - the Bridges of Königsberg frontman, EFS/Lunar Day/ECiC;EFiS founder, visionary, mercenary,
