Mr. Carmack - (Set time: 12:45 AM)
Rexx Life Raj - (Set time: 12:00 AM)
From the land of the Hyphy where slaps are king and going dumb is encouraged, Berkeley, California's Rexx Life Raj stands out by making music for the brain and the heart that's still pleasant to the ears. With his uncanny ability to shift seamlessly from rapping his ass off to singing his heart out, Rexx Life Raj has quickly become one of Bay Area music's most unique voices, garnering him cosigns from A-list music talents such by Nef The Pharaoh and YesJulz in the process. The release of his debut album "Father Figure" saw Raj praised on a national level, affording him accolades from publications such as Pitchfork, Pigeons and Planes, FADER, Noisey, SF Weekly, HotNewHipHop, and of course, Free Bread. Noisey called Father Figure "An album for anyone who likes breathing" and most recently, SF Weekly named "Father Figure" one of their Best 5 albums of the Year so far alongside Kanye West's "The Life Of Pablo" and Radiohead's "A Moon Shaped Pool". With the accolades piling up and his profile ever expanding 2016 is quickly shaping up to be the year of the Rexx.
Mike Gao - (Set time: 11:15 PM)
Mike Gao is a Los Angeles-based producer, professional music technologist and PhD candidate. Whilst continually spreading and building new sounds Gao separates his time between the studio and UC San Diego's lecture halls. With notable releases on Alpha Pup, HW&W, and All City Records UK, Gao has been taking his work from the studio to the stage.

An introvert living in an extrovert's industry, Gao pushes the conventions of hip hop, bass music and beats with his deft approach to music composition. He often collaborates with like-minded musicians such as Ta-ku, Mr. Carmack and Tokimonsta.

In addition to this, Gao is an audio scientist who has created his own iOS apps (PolyPlayground and VocalBeater) and plugins under the name Migamo.
