Vallis Alps
Vallis Alps
Parissa Tosif and David Ansari are Canberra/Seattle-based electronic duo Vallis Alps.

Their music blends down-tempo, piano-driven melodies and acoustic guitar with 80's pop synths and gritty trap beats to compliment their half-nostalgic, half- foretelling lyrics.

Since releasing their independent self-titled debut EP in Jan 2015, the pair's mesmerizing tunes have clocked over 2+ million SoundCloud plays (27, 000 of which appeared in the first 24 hours) and peaked at #1 on Hype Machine upon release. On the strength of their music alone, Vallis Alps were named as triple j Unearthed, AIR and FBi Radio feature artists and were more recently included as Zan Rowe's 'Song You Need To Hear' on CBC's Public Radio Picks. They also continued to make their mark on the Aus iTunes Electronic Album and Singles Chart for 'Young' at #2 and #23 respectively, debuting in the Top 100 ARIA singles chart -- an impressive feat for a new independent act.

The band will be playing their debut headline shows at Sydney's Goodgod and Melbourne's Shebeen this August, both of which sold out in less than a day!

The Vallis Alps EP is available on iTunes now.
Kweku Collins
Kweku Collins
It’s fitting that Kweku Collins (pronounced kway-koo) is from just outside of Chicago. The 19-year-old rapper and Evanston, Illinois native lives just beyond the fray of the city dubbed Chiraq and the distinctive music scene that has risen as result. He is close enough to witness some of the more disturbing elements of crime, poverty, and violence that plague the city, and it seeps into his music due to an awareness and acute sensibilities beyond his years, but just as he is physically outside of the city, he has a hermetic seal artistically that sets him apart. He’s not Chance The Rapper. He’s not Vic Mensa. He’s not a drill or juke dude. He doesn’t need to feel like Pablo. He is simply himself — the one thing no one else in Chicago, Illinois, or anywhere on this entire planet could be. - Stereogum
