um.. is a production duo formed by Icon Collective graduates Ben Bruce & Dylan Gold. Together the two have distanced themselves from conventional EDM and created a new space for their music and brand to reside on the outer edges of the electronic music spectrum. Since their beginnings, they have gone on to play some of the biggest venues and parties in the US including Coachellas DoLab, Red Rocks, The Gorge Amphitheater… The duo stands out with their creativity over anything else, which is something that is rare in an often oversaturated subspace of music.
LAVIER is the ever-evolving multi-genre bass music producer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania creating gossamer compositions that range from dubstep and trap, to melodic beats and lo-fi. A skilled musician, Lavier got his start at a young age with piano and guitar and played in multiple live groups throughout his teen years and early twenties. Electronic music production came about in his late teens, when a close friend showed him artists that would stir him to begin producing his complex sound. Countless hours of delving into the sounds of underground bass music influence his heavier cuts, while his years spent playing musical instruments fuel his more jazz-influenced melodic work. This is dichotomous to his off-kilter bass music, which has drawn comparisons to artists like Ivy Lab and Eprom.
Writing, mixing, and mastering music, creating visual art, and performing live is all in a day’s work for this hands-on artist. The Pittsburgh native has shared the decks with a wide variety of artists, including Lotus, Ternion Sound, The Widdler, Seppa, DMVU, EazyBaked, and many others. On top of his growing list of past notable performances, Lavier pumps out new music at a prolific rate and his releases have seen support from the likes of Street Ritual, Of The Trees, and Tripp Street, and publications such as Heard It Here First, FUXWITHIT, MOON LVNDING, and Saint Audio. The producer looks forward to an action packed 2022 with several new tracks recently released and many more in the works. He also looks forward to connecting with live audiences in new places.
Having played hundreds of sets since the start of his project in 2015, Lavier still finds time to experiment in his craft. He shares that “Playing shows is just as fun as making music for me. And thanks to my musical background, it’s equally as fun to do the actual composing as it is to work on the production end of things. From top to bottom, the entire experience of music making and performing just brings me tons of joy and I aim to share that feeling with others.”
