Matthewdavid is a Brainfeeder DJ and beatmaker whose International EP mixes hip-hop and chillwave to make music both sensuous and jarring. Described both as a producer and "sound collage artist" Matthewdavid finds beauty in such unlikely sources as discarded cassettes and distorted vintage R&B instrumentals.

Black Flag co-founder Keith Morris strikes again with OFF!, a collaboration with Dimitri Coats, Steven McDonald, Mario "Ruby Mars" Rubalcaba. So, yeah, it's safe to say that a band with alumni from Redd Kross, Rocket From the Crypt, and Burning Brides is an amazing hardcore punk band. Not for the faint of heart.

PEANUT BUTTER WOLF
Peanut Butter Wolf is a DJ, hip hop producer, and co-founder of Stones Throw. One of the finest live performers in California--and the country!--he mixes classic hip-hop and funk beats, often accompanied by vintage video projections that follow along with his turntablism. We dare you not to dance.
