Red Jr.
Red Jr is a Chicago based indie electronic quartet featuring musicians from countless other projects and musical backgrounds. Red Jr combines a little bit a’ this, little bit a’ that, and bada bing you got some tasty synths and guitar licks drizzled over some juicy bass grooves and squanchtastic drum grooves. They have a new EP they’ve quietly been working on and plan to release in spring 2018. Hold onto your butts!

The Dropout
A DIY fanatic, The Dropout (Andrew Ficker) is a self managed solo artist. He plays a variety of instruments, produces his own records, even runs his own seizure-inducing light show.
Previously known as the lesser educated half of Nigel & The Dropout (a band made famous by the front pages of platforms like «The Pirate Bay» and «Reddit»), The Dropout is rolling out a solo project in with a series of bi-weekly singles, leading up to an EP release in the summer of 2017.

AfterSound
Playing video games would never lead to anything, or so they said, but don't tell that to the members of electronic pop/rock duo AfterSound. On their own separate paths, Zain [vocals/guitar] and Shap [drums] began their musical journeys playing the likes of Guitar Hero and Rock Band only to learn they truly had a deep passion for writing songs and performing on stage. A few years and a craigslist ad later, AfterSound was formed from the most unlikely of circumstances — an acoustic singer/songwriter and a metal drummer having a shared musical vision. After touring the U.S. and Southeast Asia to promote the release of his debut album, The Leap, Zain decided to put the solo effort on hold to start a band. «Even though I had had the opportunity to work with some incredibly talented people, I remember feeling like I wanted to be involved with something bigger than myself,» recalls Zain. «My musical interests and influences were expanding, especially in the electronic genres, and I wanted to go on that journey with others.» With the release of their first single, «Find a Way», AfterSound started their exploration into their own unique sound. Working with producer Sureknock Jones on the track, the song combines the organic sound of guitars and strings with heavy electronics and synths to create an energetic anthem. The song is included on their self-titled EP, which also features the track «Stand Tall». AfterSound donated this song exclusively to the United Nations to help raise funds for their relief efforts. «Music has always been about more than just the writing or performing for me,» admits Zain. «It's part of the meaning behind the band name. Aside from being able to affect people psychologically and spiritually, I just felt like music could do some actual and tangible good in the world. The opportunity to work with the UN was incredible, and we plan to continue doing what we can with our music to support great causes.»
