Neumos presents Two Feet
Two Feet’s emergence seems as mysterious as it is rapid. It is the project of an early 20-something year old singer, multi-instrumentalist, and producer hailing from Harlem, New York. He seamlessly blends genres to create a unique sound that draws from electronic music, jazz, blues, and soul. Releasing his debut EP, First Steps, on his SoundCloud page in 2016, the breakthrough track “Go Fuck Yourself” quickly gained him attention and over 8 million plays. Perhaps most importantly, it gained him the attention of Youtube giant Majestic Casual who enthusiastically signed the artist.
Showbox presents Re:Coil Tour 2018 featuring Gramatik with Haywyre
Gramatik continues to prove himself as a relentless musical force, consistently putting out new releases and making people lose their marbles at his sold-out shows all over the world. Following his seminal 2016 album Epigram and subsequent remix EP’s he kept the streak going all year, while also gracing the stage at some of the biggest summer festivals like EDC Las Vegas, Metropop, Camp Bisco, Lollapalooza, Moonrise, Red Rocks and more.In January of 2017 there was a long-awaited reunion with another funk mastermind, GRiZ, on“As We Proceed”. The new GRiZMATiK track received excellent reviews from outlets like Dancing Astronaut, Run The Trap, EDM.com and plenty more, while also exceeding 1.2M plays on SoundCloud and reaching 2M on Spotify. Gramatik followed it up with a remix of Flume’s track “Wall Fuck” (1.22M plays on SC) which he produced with young Canadian artist, Ramzoid. The track was premiered on notorious Colorado-based blog Thissongissick, reached#1 on SoundCloud’s electronic chart and also performed well on Hype Machine. Then it was time to focus on the three singles leading up to his latest EP, “Re:Coil Part I”; on “Recovery” Gramatik teamed up with old buddy Eric Krasno and the bright, melodic jam caught the attention of Billboard who snagged it for an exclusive premiere. The next single, “Voyager Twins” was a collaboration with mysterious, Armada-affiliated act, fittingly called Galactic Marvland on the last single from new EP he joined forces with new Lowtemp signee, Balkan Bump.The single’s title “Aymo” translates to “let’s go” in the majority of ex-Yugoslavian countries,including Slovenia, where Gramatik is from originally. Appropriately, the single dropped just before Gramatik headed out on a huge fall tour across the EU, visiting 26 cities along the way. During the tour, on October 20th, he treated his fans to the release of “Re:Coil Pt. I’’ EP and just like the year before when he was dropping “Epigram”, the release party for the heavily anticipated new release took place at the legendary Paris venue,Zenith.Another important milestone was awaiting on November 9th during his show in Zurich. As one of the pioneering artists embracing crypto-culture and the new blockchain-based technologies that work towards decentralization, he launched his own token, GRMTK, in collaboration with Singular DTV. This revolutionary new approach promises a convergence of network and data that will allow creators to bypass gatekeepers and intermediaries and seize control of their intellectual property. The full goal was reached within 24 hours and all together 2,3 million dollars in ETH were raised with hardly breaking a sweat, signaling that people are open to the new distribution models. Gramatik will be testing them in early 2018 when his follow-up “Re:CoilPart II” EP will be completed and ready to drop. The revolution will be tokenized!

Keys N Krates formed as the brainchild of drummer Adam Tune, synth/keyboard aficionado David Matisse and internationally award-winning turntablist Jr. Flo. The Toronto trio came together in 2008 with the desire to bring their blend of live electronic instrumentation to the stage. They’ve often been referred to as the world’s only “trap band,” a title they reluctantly accept. Tune says it best:
“At the end of the day, people are going to call us whatever they want. We are referencing everything from classic house music to Timbaland in our beats, but I think the trap references tap into what the current sound is, and we are okay with that.”

STG Presents Nils Frahm: All Melody Tour
Nils Frahm had an early introduction to music, learning the piano throughout his childhood. It was through this that Nils began to immerse himself in the styles of classical pianists from previous generations as well as the music of contemporary composers, before forging his own musical path through composition. Today Nils Frahm continues to work as an accomplished composer, producer and celebrated performer from his Berlin-based studio at the renowned Funkhaus. His unconventional approach to an age-old instrument, played contemplatively and intimately, and on a mesmerising scale through his vast stage shows, has won him many fans around the world. Nils has gained global notoriety for his highly developed sense of control and restraint in his work, as well as a breath-taking level of emotion and personality.
Following on from his first solo piano works Wintermusik and The Bells in 2009, and 2010’s 7fingers in collaboration with cellist Anne Müller, 2011 saw his break-through album Felt on Erased Tapes. Created by placing felt on the hammers of the piano, the record defines Frahm’s signature sound which was a further development of the two-track experiment Unter/Über. Felt was followed by his solo synthesiser EP Juno and Wonders — a record by Oliveray, his duo project with long-time musical companion Peter Broderick. Nils then recorded the 2012 works Screws while recovering from a thumb injury, which he gifted to his fans on his birthday. Erased Tapes also released Juno Reworked featuring remixes by Luke Abbott and Clark.
2013 saw Nils return with his new album Spaces to critical acclaim, expressing his love for experimentation and answering the call from his fans for a record that truly reflects what they have witnessed during his live shows. Recorded over a period of two years the album captured live performances from various of his concerts worldwide. Nils also released his first music book in the same year, Sheets Eins, publishing the sheet music for tracks such as Ambre and Said and Done for the very first time. In 2015 Nils launched Piano Day, an official global body created by Nils and his closest friends to celebrate the piano via various innovative, piano-related projects around the world. The first project revealed by the Piano Day team was the building of the world’s tallest piano: the Klavins 450. It was on the slightly smaller version built by piano inventor David Klavins that Nils recorded eight improvised piano motifs in one sitting, which formed his Solo album – presented to the world on the first celebration of Piano Day.
During the same year Nils’ first film score release Music For The Motion Picture Victoria written for the one-take feature film by Sebastian Schipper, won the esteemed German Film Prize for Best Soundtrack; the soundtrack opens with an edit of Burn With Me by German producer DJ Koze. And in the Summer, the BBC Proms presented a memorable performance at London’s prestigious Royal Albert Hall curated by BBC 6 Music radio presenter Mary Anne Hobbs. Nils celebrated his continued musical partnership with fellow artist Ólafur Arnalds with the release of their Collaborative Works that October and included their three previous EP releases Stare, Loon and Life Story Love and Glory, plus Trance Frendz — the audio recording of their intimate 45-minute studio film.
Following a Nils Frahm-curated Weekend Festival at London’s Barbican Centre and the release of his second published music book Sheets Zwei, 2016 saw a collaborative score with Woodkid for Ellis, a short film by French artist JR, starring and featuring spoken words by Robert De Niro. After spending much of 2017 in hibernation in preparation for a busy period ahead, Nils will commence 2018 with his first live performances since 2015, and will embark on the beginning of a long worldwide tour entitled All Melody.
