Sawako is a Tokyo/NYC-based sound sculptor who understands the value of dynamics and the power of silence. After beginning in video art, Sawako shifted her focus from the video camera to sound. Once through the processor named Sawako, sounds in everyday life - field recordings, instruments, voice and electronic sounds - float in space vividly with a digital yet organic texture. She has 4 solo albums from 12k, Anticipate and And/OAR, and 1 split album as sawako + daisuke miyatani from Schole.
Obscure electronica outfit Lipsis are in love with their theremin, addicted to their knob twiddling and thoroughly disparaging of the whole 4/4 party banger thing. Their music is a collage of noise. You have to be very good to get away with this kind of adherence to non form, but the myspace tracks are first rate, like, really good.

Ras G & His AFRIKAN SPACE PROGRAM guides u thru a deep space exploration of black music’s ancient history and rich future. Working with obsolete tools to reach back in time and pluck out the essence of the ancients groove, Ras G's music is rich with space-funktified rhythms, fog horns, natty chattin, subterranean bass lines, colossal percussion and glorious highs.
The Glitch Mob is the straight crunkest bunch of music masters this side of oblivion; their sets of the dirtiest, stickiest, nastiest, most insane bass licks make dancers' brains explode. edIT, Ooah, and Boreta make up The Glitch Mob.

Keaver is a veteran of the Ceder studio system, known as a sound effects man but in fact, something of an innovator in electronic music. Brause, a dozen years younger and looking like a baby, has moved from Worksop to Berlin to London to Nottingham, working as a folk singer, and session musician, and is becoming more and more interested in beat sculpting. Their debut album "The Middle Way" twists a broad spectrum of elements to create hip hop founded electronics that relish the use of hazy samples and spiraling rhythms.
It all began in 2003. 2007 turned out to be especially successful - that's when Enei released his first record on the Dutch label Fokuz. That's when he also strated producing dubstep, which resulted in the second dubstep vinyl release in Russia, including one solo track and two co-produced tracks with Ka (aka Implex). More releases are coming on the biggest European labels, and more collaborations with producers from all over the world are taking place.

Talkshow Boy describes his music as "Hyperactive Glitch Pop", and you couldn't think of a better name for it. Listening to one of his albums is like watching a bunch of rats on speed eat their way through a wall of fairy floss, or riding on the back of a killer whale 2,000 feet below the surface. The only thing surpassing his recordings in sheer energy levels are his live performances, in which he walks about the entire venue interacting with the audience, when he's not rolling around on the floor or dancing like a madman.
