Selekta Chang - Tampa, FL
"I am trying to make people more aware of the power of music, especially the kind that makes you move. Maybe some can take that experience on the dancefloor to see that we can work together as a race, if we just drop our differing ideas for a moment to see what is really there. Music is one of the best ways to do this to the human mind." ~ Selekta Chang
Selekta Chang’s roots lie in his Cuban family being exposed at an early age to his parents collection of disco, soul, rock, salsa, and funk records. His first musical instrument was the drums where he performed percussion in a symphonic classical band while in Jr. High. This eventually led to his interest in djing while one day watching “The Buffalo Gals” music video on MTV. It was the scratching sound he heard that lead to his curiosity on what it meant to mix records. Around that time in Miami his cousin was a disco dj, and it was his music that motivated Chang even more to pursue the art of the mixtape.

Guthrie Kennard - Fort Worth, TX
“Guthrie Kennard is one bad ass song writer and this is no mediocre compliment. This man can write a song that is as true as an angel on the witness stand.”
– Roots Music Report
“With a voice that recalls Bob Dylan and Keith Richards, Kennard spins his tales of rural disaffection against a backdrop of rough-hewed melodies and backwoods percussion,� classic Texas music, a soundtrack to the Hill Country, and the slow country songs sound like a drive on patchy, paved roads that lead to all sorts of interesting places.”

BUMLUCKY - Dallas, TX
Bum Lucky was born out of the desire to cultivate a distinguished reggae music scene in the Dallas-Fort Worth region.

This fresh approach has rewarded Bum Lucky opportunities to share the stage with bands such as the Original Wailers, Lee Scratch Perry, Katchafire, Groundation, the Expendables, the Movement, Sensamotion, Mishka, Tribal Seeds and Fortunate Youth, among others. They’ve been guests at esteemed festivals throughout the Southwest while touring on a rigorous schedule the last several years to spread the gospel of good tunes.

Spud Crowley - Dallas, TX
If reinvention is the key to immortality, Chris Parson is going to live forever. Chameleonic in style as in name, the visionary DJ/producer has shed many skins, each one broadening his bite further up the food chain. To veterans of the electronic dance community, he is widely remembered as junglist Crisp Arson. To the more recent wave of rave, he is Parson — lead pilot for Run DMT (est. 2011) and crime-fighting beermonger for Irresponsible Voltron (est. 2008).
These nights, he operates as Spud Crowley — critical thinker, feather-ruffler of social media, and composer of metaphysical, bass-riddled wizardry. Once recognized as a pioneer of North American dubstep, the native Texan has since evolved to embrace a sound that spans more of his musical influences and individual prowess. Weaving time, moods and dimensions, he aesthetically connects the cerebral and the spiritual, pairing knowledge and dance.
