Polartropica is the unconventionally alluring musical endeavor of Los Angeles based, dreamy, galactic space-rock artist, Ihui (eeway) Cherise Wu. Taiwan born and California raised, Wu has created a genre of ethereal synth psychedelia that you’ve never heard before, combining quirky pop melodies, dreamlike-classic string arrangements, and Polartropica’s shimmering vocals. Debut EP 'ASTRODREAMS' was released on Lolipop Records, and they are currently releasing a set of singles leading to their full album release later this year. 

Disco Shrine
Jessica Delijani is the LA based, pop spark plug behind Disco Shrine. True to her tongue-in-cheek moniker, Disco Shrine makes music that plays around with high energy electronic beats and sensual melodies.

Much of the music that’s prefixed by “alt-” in the R&B pop worlds relies merely on production or cult of personality rather than actual imagination. Which is why Bay Area-bred MetronOhm has been charming listeners since they alighted in L.A. Sparked by the creative chemistry of Annabelle Maginnis and Kofi Asare-Aboagye (aka Mike Blair), MetronOhm stirs the soul with a playful, sultry mix of jazz, R&B, folk and hip-hop, and they do it with instruments like violin, mandolin, guitar, sax, cello and pocket piano, with vibrant lyricism to boot. -Buzzbands.LA

DJ sets by:
WASI is an electro-punk, riot pop band based out of Los Angeles. Originally formed as a dynamic duo from SoCal, Jessie Meehan and Merilou Salazar create a reminiscent pop soundtrack to those nights of angsty garage punk shows and skinny dipping at the beach. 

Founding members Merilou Salazar and Jessie Meehan's activism is a core essence of WASI's liberating energy. Salazar, co-founder of nationwide festival Women Fuck Shit Up Fest, and Meehan, who partnered with the ACLU in getting corporate conglomerate WALGREENS to pass a gender neutral restroom policy after a discrimination incident, question the status quo in their music and lifestyles. 

Mini bear
A creator of nostalgic, romantic pop steeped in 80s vibes, mini bear is the solo project of L.A. native songwriter and producer Lauren Kop. Taking inspiration from both past and future, mini bear uses analog synth textures and modern technology to write layered songs with syncopated rhythms and sentimental melodies. Lyrics meditate on technology’s influence on human connection and emotional detachment in our evolving technopop culture. Inspired by the music of early Madonna, Eurythmics, and Janet Jackson, it is dance-pop soaked in synths and funky drum samples. 

mini bear released her EP Mind Control via her label New Professor Music in the fall of 2016. Shaped by the heaviness of 2017, mini bear has a treasure trove of new synth-gems to release in 2018.
