NeenoSky is an AfroBeats/Hip-Hop artist. Raised in Accra, Ghana/Bubuashie he developed a love for his country and its culture; shortly after his family relocated and settled in the Bronx, NY.
It was there, he was introduced to hip-hop and became inspired. He began writing his own lyrics, pulling inspiration from his own cultural background of Ghana and further intertwining it with his newly exposed knowledge of Hip-Hop.
With his vibrant word play and his electrifying hooks, Neeno truly captures the essence of music meeting influence. He hasn’t looked back since.

Relaxer emerged from NYC in 2016 as the new project from Daniel Martin-McCormick fka Ital. Over a run of self-titled EPs and an album "Coconut Grove" for Ave 66, he has explored lush techno with a feral punk spirit informed by two decades of innovative sidewinding in the US underground. Lithe, contagious grooves are a platform for a psychologically charged atmosphere -- humid with creeping paranoia, evocative melancholic melodies and moments of startling evisceration. Relaxer’s hardware live set premiered at Berghain in 2017 and since then has been performed at De School, Sustain-Release, Institut fuer Zukunft, Griessmuehle, Mutek SF and more. He lives in New York where he co-runs the label & party series Climate of Fear, collaborates with Aurora Halal as Halal & Relaxer, and co-directs the Sustain-Release festival.
In the current club music landscape, any adherence to specific genres and styles is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Few stages bring this into as sharp relief as New York City, where the return to the halcyon days of its place as a dance music capital of the world has been well underway for some time now. Kristin Malossi’s work as DJ Voices, a founding member of the collective Working Women, and as booker for Ridgewood nightclub Nowadays, encapsulates this new riveting era perfectly and succinctly, imbuing any dance floor she touches with a unique, vital energy. Originally hailing from southern Florida, she spent her formative years in New York as a curator immersed in this multi-faceted and highly-charged scene. She crafted her own niche swiftly, and ever since then has worked tirelessly to champion and center the sounds and creators that moved her the most. From her resident nights at Nowadays, her regular shows on The Lot Radio, to her increasingly frequent sojourns to dance floors across the globe and mixes featured in Fact, Pitchfork and Resident Advisor, she’s bringing the frequencies and sounds that taught her to as many people as she can, and in a voice that is unmistakably her own.
