VIKEN ARMAN BIO:
Viken Arman, along with a generation of like-minded artists, is pushing the boundaries of electronic music not only towards the future, but also towards the past.
Fusing ancient melodies with electronic beats to create magical vibes that go beyond dance music brings rich cultures together in mystical musical journeys. Growing up with Jazz and classical music, he draws influence from a very versatile music background from Keith Jarett, Erik Satie, Bill Evans, Jay Dilla, Ricardo Villalobos to the Arabic diva Oum Khalthoum.
Nestled deep in the beautiful Kootenay mountains of Western Canada lies the home of Moontricks, a duo whose timeless sound captures the essence of their rugged roots. Combining their love of folk, blues, and electronic music, Nathan Gurley and Sean Rodman are blazing their own trail, merging musical worlds previously unacquainted and capturing audiences along the way.
Since connecting in their rural hometown through a shared love of music, the pair’s chemistry was instantly apparent. With Gurley at the production helm and Rodman on songwriting and vocals, they’ve birthed an authentically raw and seductive sound infusing grassroots blues, wistful soul, and gritty, bootstomping bass. Their breakout organic hit “Home” has surpassed 1 million streams and their music is frequently licensed for film and television.
Once a best kept secret in Canada's festival circuit, Moontricks is now taking their sound worldwide. Feeling just as at home on an electronic festival stage one weekend and a folk festival the next, their spirited live performances feature an assemblage of guitar, keys, banjo, and vocals atop stunning original productions. Their touring schedule has seen them play across North America and Australia with stops at major festivals like Lightning In A Bottle, Rainbow Serpent, and Shambhala Music Festival where they’ve become fan favourites, playing every year since their debut in 2013.
LOLA VILLA BIO:
Lola Villa (Bogotá, Colombia, 1988) is an intersectional artist and activist exploring different aspects of the human experience through sound and visuals. She’s an electronic music composer and DJ. When playing, she invokes landscapes, animals and rituals of her homeland, Colombia, along many places she’s lived in.
As a producer and a true 80s child, Lola composes hypnotizing rhythms with folkloric and synth elements. Her biggest sources of inspiration are big cities as well as the Amazon rainforest––at both edges of the spectrum, she finds a whole plethora of sounds and vibrations as well as a sense of community and synergy. She’s a vivid advocate of radical inclusion and environmental responsibility in the music industry. Lola an active member of DJs for Climate Action. Her philosophy: dance music needs disruption, it needs poetry, it needs people who cannot afford it. It needs community, riot girls and cranky queers. Lola currently lives in Mexico City with her dog Aya.
