Sonic Spank was formed in early 2009 by Benjamin Karp & Ian McGuire. In 2010 they added up and coming drummer Scotty Zwang. The trio seamlessly blends all styles of music pioneering a genre called Sextronica. What sets Sonic Spank apart from many acts in the scene is live guitar, keyboards & drums. Ben & Ian have been friends since Preschool and have collaborated on music since the beginning of High School which explains their undeniable chemistry on stage and innocent perversion. Sonic Spank penetrates the line between the craft of DJing and virtuoso instrumental musicianship.
Sonic Spank has already made appearances at regional clubs, parties, radio stations and festivals with an enthusiastic response from audiences. So far, SONIC SPANK has been billed with major national/international acts including the Disco Biscuits, Pretty Lights, Skrillex, Bassnectar, Lotus, Crystal Method, The New Deal, Infected Mushroom, Big Gigantic, Future Rock, Orchard Lounge, Biodiesel, KJ Sawka, Brothers Past, Paper Diamond and The Egg.
Sonic Spank has major plans for 2012. With their first full length album 'Drama' set to release in the beginning of the year they plan to innovate their live concert experience, highlighted by big tours nationwide.
D.V.S* is the musical vision of Brooklyn based Guitarist/ Producer/ DJ named Derek VanScoten. Armed with a tricked out Telecaster guitar, a lightbrite controller, and a red laptop, D.V.S* combines big dancefloor beats with vintage soul melodies and modern rock textures. The result is a soulful and vibrant energy seldom attained in the realm of beat-based music. Now more than ever, music lovers are gravitating towards artists that are dropping dancefloor beats dressed with sexy textures and articulate melodies. D.V.S* sets the crowds into motion with stylistic mashups, merging Hip Hop with Soul, and Dubstep & with Rock N¹ Roll.
Having recently toured as a solo artist supporting Ana Sia, Big Gigantic, Beats Antique, Boombox, Lynx & Janover, JFJO, and M80 Dubstation, D.V.S* is well on his way to carving his space in the vast world of electronica.
Brian Haas of JFJO says "The new D.V.S. album, 'Before I Sing', combines beautiful melodies, super fat beats, jazz guitar power, and lush horn harmonies into true, relevant psychedelic trip hop. Very positive sounds from a unique, new voice in modern music....highly recommended."
The Silo Effect
In late 2007 a series of events served to inspire and generate the creation of what is now called the Silo Effect. Since their inception, the Richmond-based quartet has been carefully crafting a boldly satisfying brew of electronic space-rock. Deriving their sound from an eclectic blend of forms and styles, they have fostered a dedicated following throughout the mid-Atlantic, and continue seducing listeners up and down the East coast. Colorful sonic landscapes riddled in vivid melodies, infectious grooves and soaring peaks.
Members of the Silo Effect are fundamentally bound to the assurance that their artistic platform is one that is firmly grounded in promoting a culture of music and art in the most unifying of lights. They are joined by a commitment to offer listeners a message of universal awareness and peace through inner consciousness. Always reaching for innovative approaches to live performance community involvement, they remain true to their unique creation. Silo thrives on their ability to leave the audience with an original mark of unified elation.
