Uji is the solo alias of Argentinian electronic musician Luis Maurette. Born and based in Buenos Aires, Uji spent a majority of his life traveling and living throughout the American continent, growing up amidst a diversity of sounds and cultures. This rich background has heavily influenced his own music, which fuses his roots in indigenous, folkloric and African music with contemporary electro-acoustic production. After releasing five albums between 2005 and 2016 as one-half of the duo Lulacruza, Uji released his solo debut album Alborada last year on ZZK Records.
J.Lamotta is a Berlin-based vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, and producer born in Tel Aviv to a family with Moroccan roots. Heavily immersed in Berlin's vibrant arts community, her music explores a warm and organic intersection between R&B, jazz, soul, and hip-hop. On April 12th she'll be releasing her second full-length album titled SUZUME on Berlin-based label Jakarta Records, providing another wonderful showcase for her colorful genre-blurring sound.
The DJ alias of Seattle's Benny Sheffield, Blueyedsoul has been one of the busiest and most trusted selectors in the local nightlife scene over the past decade. With his deep crates, expansive knowledge, and seasoned mixing skills, he's able to nimbly blend classic and contemporary sounds to get any dancefloor moving. A tireless musical force, he's opened up stages for world-class DJs such as Kid Koala, A-Trak, Kenny Dope, J-Rocc, Hot Chip, and Spinderella, and invited to spin at local festivals Bumbershoot, Capitol Hill Block Party, and Upstream. You can often find him spinning around town at his multiple residencies, which includes epic weekend parties at Grim's every Friday and Sunday, dusting off the classics for Motown on Mondays at Bar Sue, keeping things funky at Sugar Hill every 1st Thursday, and co-running the seasonal Feel Good Inc. parties at Neumo's. In addition to his stacked regular schedule, you can find Blueyedsoul spinning at the Shameless 5th Annual Memorial Day Desert Hearts Showcase happening at Monkey Loft on Monday, May 27th.
Don Leisure is the solo alias of Aly Jamal, a Cardiff, UK-based musician who's also one-half of in-demand production duo Darkhouse Family.

This month Don Leisure will be unveiling his latest solo offering titled Halal Cool J vs Shaboo on First Word Records, adding another collection of top-shelf global beats into his growing catalog.
