Get your lassos, get your whips, and saddle up for this saucy singer.
Strange. Dark. Electrifying. Miku Daza is the queen of nightmare pop. The devilishly charming carnival rocker’s debut EP, It’s a Fairy Tale, explores love as a disease- an alien infestation that consumes from within. Wild and untamed, her music is a cotton candy fever dream. Her live performance, a twinkling wind-up music box, full of surprises, grungy despair, and frenetic punk fury.
DJVU is a musical moniker of Matthew Binginot, a Vermont musician, filmmaker, photographer, and designer. Obsessed with creating, mixing, and performing music, DJVU’s productions stretch to all corners of house music including melodic house, techno, trance, disco, and synthwave styles. In addition to playing guest sets at venues throughout North America and Europe, DJVU has toured and performed at festivals, clubs, and events of all kinds. He currently holds residencies in Burlington Vermont and produces music for several New England music projects. No matter where he is performing, DJVU’s live sets are an amalgamation of melodic musical mixing, unique visual performance setups, and non-step energy!
DJ RiMix started creating an ideal dance environment at Phase 1 in 2006, which was at the time, this country's oldest women's bar. RiMix has now been a New York based DJ for 11 years. She started DJing because she was both a dancer, and a control freak. She knew what made her move and became entranced with understanding what makes other bodies move. “It’s like sex...you have to watch every slight body movement to guide you on where to go next. Does that make it weird now?”
