-- FUTEXTURE --
Futexture is future music for music lovers. Its music written in homage to the boundless majesty of nature, the complexity and strangeness of human relationships, and the ineffable vastness of reality. It is the merger of tradition and the incalculable future, dancing together on the razor thin edge of now. It is what happens when David Krantz, a North Carolina native and multi instrumentalist, titrates his experience into sound.
David carries his family’s music history into the future (his great grandfather was a composer in Krakow, Poland before WWII and his Aunt is an accomplished opera singer) as he leans heavily on skillful synthetic sound design, reprocessed acoustic sound sources, and crisp production. One of the rare producers who can transcend the typical barriers between electronic dance music and traditional composition, David is at home in a variety of contexts and settings. Spanning the range between heavy bass music and contemplative downtempo, his versatility, depth of expression, and command over detail has earned him accolades from some of the most respected minds in forward thinking electronic music.
David has released music as Futexture through Gravitas Recordings, Bluetech’s Critical Beats, Afro Monk Records, Street Ritual, Circuitree Records, LessThanThree, Forward Thinking Sounds, and Kalya Scintilla’s Merkaba records. He lives currently in Asheville, NC.
Listen to Futexture's Spring 2018 Mix:
"Quite the colorful young lad out here expressing himself", Waterchild is a downtempo / hip hop electronic musician from Atlanta residing in Nashville. Since he began writing music he has mined and manipulated musical diversity to create his own personal blend of sound. Regardless of the style a track adheres to or innovates upon, Waterchild adopts a stance of peace, contemplation, and emotional vulnerability. Nothing is hidden and no airs are put on. This is music to relax with; music to think on and to feel; music for dreams and dreamers.

The Space Cadet
The Space Cadet is an ambient chill out project produced by Tennessee native and multi-instrumentalist Julien Foster. Drawing inspiration from psychedelic music, comics and culture, his output is a distillation of synths, samples and real instrumentation into swirling soundscapes and smokey beats. He has performed at Tipper & Friends events at the Fillmore in Denver and the 4321 Eclipse gathering as well as smaller regional festivals such as Nebulosity & Further Fest with Metanoia Art.

The name ‘Moodsmith’ comes from this mission: crafting moods by welding together intricate rhythms and layers of expertly designed melodic synths. These moods provide a basis for his singularly recognizable vocal melodies, which express an inner empathy and a recognition of the intimate nature of music, its sacredness and unique ability to connect people together; as well as a not-so-serious, sometimes humorous stream of consciousness on modern love, loss, and being human.
