TELESMA (Psychedelic Tribal Rock)
The Telesma experience is an ecstatic trans-cultural phenomenon with a highly infectious and danceable beat. Exploding on the Baltimore music scene in 2002, it soon developed a loyal local fan base and then shook the underground festival scene from coast to coast. Every Telesma show is a vortex of creativity; a celebration of body, mind and spirit.
Telesma’s vast arsenal of musical finery includes instruments as divergent as the didgeridoo, kubing (bamboo mouth harp from the Philippines), to electronic and tribal drums and the manDrum, one of the inventions of Telesma’s guitarist, as well as bass, keyboards, drum kit and the human voice.
Telesma’s sound has been sometimes described as “psychedelic tribal modern world dance music, “ with diverse sounds ranging from intense polyrhythmic rock to the trance-like pulses of modern electronic dance/groove music.
For the past 5 years, SOOHAN has been filling up rooms across the DMV, mixing eclectic Baltimore club, hip-hop samples and deep bass-lines to create an undeniably dance-worthy set that combines elements of Top 40, tech and minimal house, glitch, funk, juke and dancehall. Cutting his teeth as a mashup producer in 2006, SOOHAN found fame through his edits and remixes of favorited artists like Three 6 Mafia, Biggie Smalls, and Missy Elliott, currently gaining over 200,000 plays and counting. He has shared the stage with heavy-hitters including Afroman, Mike Posner, Jack Beats, Alvin Risk, Downlink, Minnesota, Papadosio and EOTO.
Galaxy Dynamite (Surf/Trance/Rock/Psychedelic)
Hailing from Norfolk, Virginia, Galaxy Dynamite has been delivering their larger-than-life signature blend of furious, frenetic, and absolutely relentless heavy bass rock across the East Coast since 2010. This power trio has already made a name for themselves creating seamlessly improvised dreamy soundscapes over hard-hitting passion driven psychedelic electro dance grooves. And with over 325 shows and festivals under their belts, alongside acts such as Ozric Tentacles, Conspirator, Paper Diamond and Papadosio, this is only the beginning…
