Simón Mejía is the founder of internationally-acclaimed Colombian group and longtime KEXP favorites Bomba Estéreo. Formed by Simón in 2005 as an outlet for his exploratory musical desires after being a part of the Colombian alternative rock band Charconautas in the 1990s, Bomba Estéreo and their vibrant and infectious fusion of Latin, electronic, pop, cumbia, and psychedelic styles has steadily evolved over their 15-year career and they've gained a devoted global audience along the way. Earlier this year Simon introduced his new solo alias Monte, a project inspired by a recent move from the metropolis of Bogotá into a house in a rural area nearby, as well as his love of nature and capturing atmospheric field recordings while exploring the jungles of the Amazon and taking journeys along the Magdalena River. Monte's debut album Mirla just came out on September 18th.
London-based electronic producer Loraine James has quickly emerged as an exciting new voice in the underground electronic community with her adventurous take on IDM, grime, bass, and experimental club styles. Part of Hyperdub Records' cutting-edge roster, this past October she followed up her innovative 2019 debut album For You And I with Nothing, an expansive 4-track EP that showcased her visionary production techniques and collaborative spirit with guest appearances by Uruguayan musician Lila Tirando a Violeta, Iranian-born, Liverpool-based rapper Tardast and HTRK’s Jonnine Standish.
Kruder & Dorfmeister are a legendary duo comprised of Austrian electronic producers Peter Kruder and Richard Dorfmeister, creators of blissed-out beats and iconic remixes. They made their debut in 1993 with the groundbreaking G-Stoned EP, and it was their 1998 double-CD collection of remixes titled The K&D Sessions that became a surprise underground hit, cemented their legacies as trip-hop and downtempo luminaries, and helped introduce the relaxed and seductive electronic sub-genres to a wider audience. 22 years after their seminal release, Kruder & Dorfmeister returned this year with new original music and their brand new full-length album 1995 is set to be released on November 13th.

Russell primarily works with modular synthesizers to create compelling recordings that have been released on premier underground electronic labels including Opal Tapes, Club Chai, Left Hand Path, Jacktone, Spectral Sound, and Mister Saturday Night. Since 2017, Russell's talents as both a DJ and live performer have led to invitations to perform in Europe and beyond, and this year Russell also started a career in audio engineering.
