EOTO
EOTO
A live band on hi-tech hyperdrive, EOTO has forged new territory in the electronic dance music movement. Locked and loaded with computers, loopers, midi controllers, routers, software, mixers, and the latest in music technology, multi-instrumentalist Michael Travis and percussionist/vocalist, Jason Hann have sent a speeding bullet through the electronic dance community due to their innovative 100% improvised approach and as a result, their exclusive sound. Not just a haphazard foray into experimental music, the duo starts their musical adventure from scratch (there are no pre-recorded loops, no backing tracks, and no pre-constructed songs in their live production) building each set, note-by-note, beat by beat, live before the audience as each show explodes into a full-scale dance party.

A double-headed juggernaut, the duo works effortlessly as they twist and turn through a series of genres including Drum & Bass, Electro, Dubstep, House, and Glitch Hop dance music; virtually constructing a new sci-fi soundtrack each night they perform.

What makes EOTO extraordinary is the way the duo designs their performance by looping live guitar, bass, and keyboard synths, alongside with live drums and vocals, to carve out their sound right before the eyes and ears of the audience. No small feat in music production; even the highest order of studio producers, audiophiles, and musicians have a hard time wrapping their head around EOTO’s approach, and the wild ride that results.

malachi † is the moniker of VT creative malcolm miller. dj, producer, radio personality, and illustator, malachi † was originally recognized for his eclectic radio shows at wgdr throughout ‘07 - 2013. after spending several years participating in underground functions, 2014 became a big year for malachi † as he supported both Waka Flocka Flame & Datsik in January, solidifying his position as a local mainstay to support touring acts throughout 2014 & 2015, and Waka for a second time in the fall of 2016.

after his second appearance w/ Waka, malachi † took a hiatus for a couple years to reestablish his creative goals and released some illustrations during this quiet time. come 2019 malachi † has returned to the stage, with razor sharp focus, and a stacked performance calendar. collaborating and networking with likeminded artists local and nationwide, malachi † is creating noise and pushing the envelope wherever there’s an audience to turn riot.

malachi † creations and performance embody an aesthetic heavily influenced by neo noir, houston & atlanta hiphop, nu metal, and all things sinister and brooding. malachi † parallel’s himself most to the likes of Shlohmo, Clams Casino, & Dj Screw.
