Tomemitsu
Tomemitsu is the lo-fi dreampop project of Echo Park hired hand Martin Roark. A multi instrumentalist and bedroom producer/engineer, Tomemtisu has worked with and performed in bands like So Many Wizards, Dark Waves, Basement Babies, Trabants, and has toured internationally as a supporting musician. After releasing his debut album on Chill Mega Chill Records in 2013, Tomemitsu gained attention for standout tracks "In Dreams" and "Runaway", which were licensed for the web-series High Maintenance. Since appearing on the series, now on HBO, Tomemitsu's appeal spread worldwide with two stellar releases in 2016: "In Dreams," now at over a million plays on Spotify, was remixed by the Berlin DJ super-group RSS Disco and a 12" vinyl single was released by Mireia Records in Germany. "Loaf Eye", the sophomore album by Tomemitsu, was also released to positive review and a successful college radio campaign, debuting in the top 50 on CMJ.

With a pastiche that combines world rhythms, dreamy blends of acoustic and electric guitars, diverse nods to punk and ambient sounds, and intimately whispered lyrics, Tomemitsu has created a sound that even the prolific underground pop hero, Frankie Cosmos, can't resist, "It's really beautiful! You can quote me on that." Tomemitsu has performed along such esteemed acts as Flo Morrissey, Lake, Tennis System, Samira's Infinite Summer, Post Life, Hit Bargain, Michael Vidal, Shitgiver, Black Sea, Pastel Felt.

Childhood friends, Ruby Haunt (fka Haunt) is an american musical project conceived by Wyatt Ininns and Victor Pakpour sometime in 2015. The duo wrote their first three EPs while in school via opposite ends of the west coast (Los Angeles and Portland), exchanging musical ideas over email. In this time they received support from Nowness, Track + Field Records, C-Heads Magazine, and various tastemaking YouTube channels for their unique songwriting and self-produced music videos.

In 2016 the boys saw a move to L.A. where they wrote their debut LP ‘Sugar’, their first written together in a small ocean front house in Laguna Beach, California. ‘Sugar’ was self-released in October 2016, featuring collaborations with the renowned photographer Henrik Purienne, film duo Wissa for their Roberto Cavali campaign in Vogue Italia, and a critically praised remix by Nutrition released on Majestic Casual Records. 2017 sees the duo busy at work on their next EP and a live show that will tour towards the end of the year.
