I am leif olson aka lokey that strange bass layer. I've been creating and performing improvised, glitchy bass music, lush downtempo soundscapes, and odd techno explorations for over a decade, using an ever-evolving custom-crafted ableton performance rig to conjure new and original music from the world around me. Based out of calgary, I love nothing more than to encourage the creation and performance of local live music. I perform and celebrate live improvised music at every opportunity.
Mat is a producer, live performer, sound designer and hardware enthusiast. He has been creating music for nearly two decades after having been initiated into the once prolific tracker\demoscene, having been heavily influenced by 80s new wave, 90s acid, house music, industrial and cyberpunk sub-cultures. He is a multi-genre artist, having produced synthpop, IDM, breakcore, techno, synthwave, and future funk. Mat is a strong proponent and cultivator of live hardware performance, forging an intimacy with the music based in the direct physical connection between the emergent perception of sound within his consciousness and biorhythmic instincts. Mat is also a co-founder of the annual Alberta Electronic Music Conference.
