►OBEY CITY - Sam Obey is a Brooklyn based producer with EPs on LuckyMe and co founder of the label/club night Astro Nautico. He knows how to get a party started—and then let things simmer down. - Opening Ceremony
Instead of opting for the soaring melodies and glorious climaxes of his LuckyMe label mates, the glossy sounds of Obey City fit somewhere between Rustie and S-Type with sharp, futuristic and RnB-twinged tone. - Giles Peterson
►M!NT - Originally hailing from just west of Calgary, Alberta - Cody Yozipovic now resides in Brooklyn, NY. His diverse musical & instrumental background has allowed him to explore musical aspirations and form under the alias M!NT. M!NT writes music that attempts to represent all of the pieces from his musical experience from jazz to Rnb, hip-hop, electronic & more particularly more bass heavy genres. His style pulls from the music he composes for cinematic projects to merge with kinetic momentum directed toward the dance floor in a way that gives the M!NT a depth often overlooked by the standard fare club repertoire. With music that is constantly looking toward new adventures in bass and beats, M!NT is an artist to watch in the coming year on his rise through new and diverse sonic experiences.
►BOGL & VNDMG - This tour embodies the current electronic music landscape by placing forward-thinking producer VNDMG alongside the iconic DJ BOGL. Both of these artists represent important aspects of music culture through their art. VNDMG is a technically fierce producer who is always pushing the boundaries of electronic music production, refusing to settle on the "sound of the month." BOGL embodies the idea of the DJ as a cultural ambassador. He's done so by touring the world multiple times over, representing the freshest sounds in bass music, continually releasing explosive mixes, co-producing San Francisco's legendary SOUNDPIECES crew, and representing the fashion brand SAV NOIR.
► IRK - Daniel IRK is a Swedish legend. He founded All Out Dubstep, runs Way Out West Festival, and is responsible for all the cool shit that happens in Stockholm.

SOUNDPIECES has had its hands in organizing top notch events, making art, and weaving webs since 2006. Join us to discover the newest of musical formulas, hosted in the most ideal and sophisticated atmospheres we can find. We are not genre specific, we are quality specific. Soundpieces is famed for showcasing diverse high-end bass music and rare international acts, many for their very first time in the Bay Area such as Hudson Mohawke, Mount Kimbie, Rustie, Shlohmo, Skream, Caspa, and Joker to name a few. We've been hosting the only diverse bass music "weekly" in San Francisco every Tuesday for over 4 years. With our expansion to LA, we are taking steps to become one of west coast's premier resources to experience quality and underground bass music styles.
