VÉRITÉ
VÉRITÉ
It’s been less than two years since VÉRITÉ performed her first live show, but she’s already packed in a career’s worth of highlights. Performing at massive festivals like Lollapalooza and Firefly, surpassing 12 million streams on Spotify with a pair of critically acclaimed EPs, crisscrossing the US and Europe for her own headlining shows, and opening for big names like Stars, MS MR, and Tove Lo; she has amassed a mountain of media praise everywhere from Buzzfeed and Billboard to Nylon and SPIN.

VÉRITÉ began her music career while working full-time as a waitress at Applebee’s in Times Square. Over the course of nearly two years, she crafted the ‘Echo EP,’ a stunning debut which showcased her unique brand of poignant, emotionally intense alt-pop. SPIN praised her “incredibly strong club-ready cuts,” naming her one of five new artists to watch, while BuzzFeed hailed lead single “Strange Enough” as one of the best songs of the summer. Upon its release, the track hit #1 most viral on Twitter and earned her the #1 spot on Hype Machine, along with additional love from Harper’s Bazaar, Refinery29, Idolator, and more. She followed it up with the ‘Sentiment’ EP, which TIME called “gorgeous,” with “complex electronic arrangements” and “rich and ethereal vocals.”

VÉRITÉ self-funds every aspect of her career, following her own design and operating outside of the major label system as a truly independent success story. She’s about to hit new heights with the release of her most mesmerizing collection yet, the ‘Living EP.’ Recorded with an all-star cast of producers including Stefan Graslund (Charli XCX), Tim Anderson (Banks), Zach Nicita (MS MR), Peter Thomas (Betty Who), and James Flannigan (Kodaline), the EP showcases VÉRITÉ’s remarkable growth and sophistication, as she spins dark, vulnerable confessions into infectious, danceable anthems. Opener “Underdressed” reveals a new edge to her haunting, silky vocals, while the reverb-laden guitars of “Constant Crush” give way to pulsing percussion and hypnotic melody lines, and the minimalist “Gesture” strips everything back down to its absolute rawest, ending with a gorgeous stack of a cappella harmonies.” It’s hard to believe we’ve only just met VÉRITÉ considering all she’s already accomplished, but as she continues to reveal new depth and nuance with each release, it’s clear we’ll be getting to know her for a long time to come.
Moon Bounce
Moon Bounce is Philadelphia's warped electronic maestro, Corey Regensburg. Taking cues from classic R&B, hip-hop and even the rhythmic lurching of metal, Corey's recognizable sound is the culmination of his unique artistic endeavors. Walking the fine line between creation and disintegration, his output combines soulful vocals with jagged percussion; calming, yet on the verge of falling apart.

In May 2011, Moon Bounce dropped his debut EP, Darn Your Best Frock, which was met with praise and intrigue by some of the most notable tastemaker blogs. Prefix Mag described the "vibrant spacey vibes" as "organic, cohesive and wholly enjoyable" while Potholes In My Blog praised his "stylish production". The closing track "Jealousy March" spawned a hallucinogenic and beautifully shot video that nicely accompanied the haphazard beats and drones.

After sharing the stage with the likes of Shlohmo, Teen Daze, Groundislava and ANR, Corey released a number of singles, including the XLR8R featured "Telephone". In fact, he had the starring role in the track's video, showing a bit of his comedic personality and letting fans know that everything should not be taken seriously all the time. Working quickly and only stopping briefly to focus on producing hip-hop beats (another weapon in Corey's musical arsenal), Moon Bounce teamed up with Chill Mega Chill Records and prepared to turn heads again with his sophomore Wheelhouse EP.

Wheelhouse's classical piano infusion, pitch shifted vocals and syncopated bass fills work to create a serene, groove-obsessed atmosphere. Described by Chill Mega Chill as having a "knack for making ethereal, yet intricate, productions that feel loose and endless as space itself while simultaneously maintaining a precise and mature balance", Moon Bounce's vision continues to grow and his creativity shines in an otherwise predictable musical climate. Get on board or get left behind.
Deal Casino
Deal Casino is a call to action. A melodic plea for people to chase their dreams, risk it all and leave nothing on the table. Deal Casino formed around this idea when the four members Joe, Jon, Mike and Jozii dropped out of school and moved to the rock n’ roll mecca Asbury Park, NJ in 2013. Instantly becoming a staple of the burgeoning music scene, the band played a summer long residency at The Saint, put out three EP’s with renowned producer Jon Leidersdorff and won three Asbury Music Awards for Best Pop/Rock Band, Best Vocalist, and Best Live Performance against other nominees like Brick + Mortar and Nicole Atkins. The band has no plans to slow down as a relentless performing schedule, three music videos and several more EP’s are planned for 2015.
