Adam Melchor’s journey thus far has been far from conventional. Long story short, this proud Jersey boy picked up a guitar and eventually fulfilled his lifelong dream of becoming a musician in Los Angeles. But in reality, he got there by singing for mobsters “well-suited insurance guys” at pizza parlors, getting an Opera degree, playing thousands of hours in various dives, churches, and restaurants (sometimes in the same day), and driving across the country to the West Coast in an old Toyota Camry (twice). Moving to Los Angeles during 2018, he had sessions with everyone from Charlie Puth to The Chainsmokers, and has also toured alongside Mt. Joy, Dodie, Rodrigo Y Gabriela, and JS Ondara. Picking up steam, his single “Real Estate” gained impressive traction leading up to the 2020 SUMMER CAMP EP. At the onset of the Global Pandemic, he launched Melchor’s Lullaby Hotline, where he personally replied to fan texts and emails with a new demo each Sunday. He eventually sent out about 40 original songs to 10,000 fans. After racking up more than 50 million streams and garnering acclaim from NPR, Wonderland Magazine, Billboard, Atwood Magazine, and more, he properly introduces himself and shares the juicy details of this story on his latest mixtape, Melchor Lullaby Hotline, Vol. 1.

Specializing in trap and bass music, Brooklyn-based electronic producer Baauer broke into the mainstream when his 2012 viral sensation “Harlem Shake” debuted atop the Billboard charts and spawned an equally viral meme. An aspiring bedroom producer since the age of 13, Harry Rodrigues took the name Baauer to brand his tracks, which combined crunk hip-hop beats, dance music tempos, and clever samples from video-sharing sites. He made his official debut in early 2012 when his bass-heavy party track “Dum Dum” was released by the LuckyMe label on a one-sided, laser-etched 12″. Diplo’s Mad Decent label then signed Baauer and released “Harlem Shake” on their sub-imprint Jeffree’s in May of that same year. At first, the track made waves among the EDM and electro-trap faithful, but in early 2013, it exploded into the mainstream thanks to an Internet meme in which individuals uploaded amateur videos of themselves dancing to the song. Football teams, firemen, college kids dressed as Power Rangers, and even SeaWorld animals were all seen doing the Harlem Shake, and the collective views quickly climbed into the thousands, then millions. Baauer benefited from YouTube’s new “Content ID” system, which allowed users to use the song with the producer and label benefiting from any ad revenue. At the end of February, as Baauer announced his debut EP for Mad Decent, along with a collaboration with hip-hop producer Just Blaze, Billboard changed its formula for calculating charts and added YouTube streaming data to the mix of sales and radio plays. “Harlem Shake” debuted at number one the next week, and eventually earned Dance Song of the Year and EDM Song of the Year at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards. “Higher,” featuring Just Blaze, followed that August. Baauer then released the ß EP — a collaboration with AlunaGeorge and Rae Sremmurd — in 2014 and the single “GoGo!” in 2015. That track also appeared on the producer’s 2016 debut album, Aa, which landed on the LuckyMe label and included guest spots by Future, Pusha T, M.I.A., Rustie, and Novelist. Over the following years, Baauer focused mainly on standalone singles, issuing a string of tracks into 2018. He returned in 2020 with his sophomore album, Planet’s Mad, which went on to be nominated for Best Dance/Electronic Album at the 2021 Grammy Awards.
After racking up just shy of half-a-billion streams and receiving acclaim from Vice, Pigeons & Planes, Billboard, Vogue UK, and more, bülow has learned to trust her gut when it comes to music. The songstress infuses alternative pop with clever observations, personal confessions, and boundary-breaking spirit underpinned by live instrumentation. Spending the first eight years of her life in Germany, she moved to England with her family and started busking by the time she turned eleven. She has lived everywhere from Holland to Toronto and channeled a musical wanderlust into her songwriting. Along the way, she dropped four Eps—Damaged Vol. 1 , Damaged Vol. 2 , Crystalline , and The Contender —and collaborated with everyone from Ty Dolla $ign and Mura Masa to Fall Out Boy and MadeInTYO. Not to mention, she graced the bills of festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and Osheaga and shined on NBC’s The Today Show. As the world slipped into quarantine during 2020, she settled in Holland and musically turned back the clock. Nodding to favorites from her parents’ record collection, she re-embraced formative influences, including Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Kate Bush, Janis Joplin, Joni Mitchell, and The Shins. Creative freedom defines her forthcoming new music, kicked off by the guitar-driven “First Place.”

Reared amid the smoky, off-kilter creations of Los Angeles’ storied “beat scene,” the DJ and electronic producer RL Grime wields trap hi-hats, chest-caving bass, and languid synth lines that melt out of sound systems like Salvador Dalí’s clocks. He grew up in L.A. in a creative family—his father was an architect and his mother was a fine-arts photographer. He loved 50 Cent as a kid, made regular trips to EDC in Las Vegas in high school, and started making beats after being inspired by the dubstep-inflected ballads of James Blake. In the early 2010s, he joined the Wedidit Collective alongside beatmakers Shlohmo and Groundislava and dropped out of school at NYU to focus on music, eager to capitalize on gig offers after drawing attention online for his tracks—including a mesmerizing, massive 2012 remix of Kanye West’s “Mercy” made with fellow L.A. producer Salva. Always versatile, he’s teamed with R&B singers and street rappers alike on subsequent remixes and EPs while exploring all shades of catharsis on his solo albums, including 2014’s VOID and 2018’s NOVA. Since then, he has gone on to establish his own record label called Sable Valley, serving as a platform to highlight emerging talent that he believes in and allowing up-and-coming artists to share their artistic voice with the world on their terms.
