YNGCULT hail from the Los Angeles area, but remain anonymous. “Sides of War,” one of the two singles known to their name (the other titled “Lets Get It Back“), is a pre-release from their Capitoll EP, which is set to be available early 2014.
Quite obviously, production is where YNGCULT thrives. “Sides of War” creates engaging buildups and minimalist drops, with twinkling synth and haunting female vocals, similar to what we heard on Cathedrals’ “Unbound.” With emphasis on floating melodies and thoughtful lyrical content, the anticipation for this EP is of high caliber. “Sides of War” is diverse and passionate yet utterly graceful within its every motion.
Das Tapes were born in Los Angeles, 2010, brothers/producers Das Tapes are doing more than taking a stab at pop music; with Kevin helming drums, beat production and lead vocals, and Mark as the guitar and synth-wielding doctor, they’re killing it and bringing it back to life. Both schooled in jazz and fanatics of Hip hop and Motown, their gleaming beats and earnest songwriting were captured on their self-titled, -produced and -released EP. Described ”addictive, sexy, dark and dirty synth laden,” blogs around the globe have already had a field day using their likeness in mixtapes, DJ sets and remixes. And not to be outdone, the production duo’s handled remix duties for both Mates of State and Okkervil River singles.
The Herms are a smudged window into a neighboring dimension to ours. This brash, new outfit has taken the east side by storm with their passion and depth.

Raised in Chicago, Erich “E-TRAIN” Malo has always been known for his obsession with breakdancing, beat-boxing, and party rapping. Growing up with a twin sister classically trained as a dancer and choreographer, E-TRAIN was constantly surrounded by music and dance. Despite his artistic bent, E-TRAIN majored in business but when his mother Roxane Malo tragically passed away during his freshman year, young Erich’s passion for music and art blossomed and he transformed into the artist the world knows today as E-TRAIN.
