One of the newest members of the “live-tronica” scene, Mindstream’s intricate percussion sections and chest rattling bass lines combine with ever-evolving synth sounds, wailing guitar solos, and instrumental surprises ranging from the saxophone to the sitar to the djembe are sure to make each performance a truly unique experience.
Jan 24th – Ian Stewart w/ Louis Deluxe & The Amazing Baz
Ian Stewart is a Connecticut based producer and performer of alternative electronic dance music. Despite a background in traditional house DJing, Ian has recently made the switch to a live PA style set, allowing him to mix and manipulate his all-original music with much greater flexibility than a two-turntable setup would allow.The catalyst for this transformation was Ian’s debut full-length album, Dubonomics, released independently on August 5th, 2011. The music comprising the album was first performed at The Big Up music festival to a wildly enthusiastic reception. Fans lauded the set as “awesome… one of my favorite acts”, “stellar”, and “absolutely perfect”.
Since the album’s release, Ian has played at several other festivals throughout the north-east, and club dates in New York City, Boston, and New Haven. He has also shared the stage with and supported artists including Tipper, Orchard Lounge, Ott, Pnuma Trio, Eskmo, Sub Swara, Big Gigantic, Elliot Lipp, Telepath, and more.
With momentum for Dubonomics still building, Ian has already begun work on his next project. While the future-dub sounds of Dubonomics are perfectly suited to warm up party-goers for a night of full-on electronic bliss, exclusive live performances of the new material already have fans clamoring over the energetic new sound Ian is pursuing.

Jan 31st – The Chroma Concept Debut EP Realease party with Dice Motion
The Chroma Concept:
The Chroma Concept was formed shortly after New Year of 2011. They met at Berklee College of Music, where they developed their vision and honed their sound. The group seeks to combine instrumental music with electronic styles. Centered around improvisation, they mix grooves such as Dubstep, Funk and Drum’n’Bass freely within the framework of their jazz-influenced compositions. The group is currently a trio consisting of Ezra Platt (Guitar/EFX), Mike Clairmont (Bass/EFX) and Stefan Bildy (Drums). They have already performed at some of New England’s premier nightclubs (Middle East Upstairs, Church Boston, Stone Church, Copperfield’s, Oliver’s, Mill St. Brews). They have written an abundance of original material that can withstand even the longest most grueling sets. The Chroma Concept is in the process of infiltrating the US creative music scene with their mind-bending, powerful music.
In Boston, MA, Fall 2009, Blinding Sparks convoluted together at a regular home studio and gave birth to a Livid Tectonic Plate Moving Soulmerging Sound.This sound is the Creative Fusion of producers Joel Friedman & WigGz Caro interacting with Ableton Live from night to sunrise on any given day.
On the next day, the Monstrous Frankenstein that emerged from the bass heavy speakers became known as Dice Motion.
Combining a melting pot of influences of Dubstep, Glitch, Electro, House, Folk, and etc…, this duo stays true to the Electronic Music Tradition of blurring genre lines and staying true to themselves on only one thing, INNER MOVING MUSIC.
