“Vindata is the brainchild of Branden Ratcliff and Jared Poythress based in Los Angeles, California. Blending rugged hip hop beats with deep R&B passions, and indie-pop sensibilities; the pair are on a mission to expand how we define dance music. After notable underground success with their last EP “…For One To Follow” [Symbols] , the duo are back with a brand new EP titled “Through Time And Space…” [OWSLA], another piece of their discography puzzle depicting the human experience. This time around, they’ve crafted a 6 track journey through different perceptions of different realities. The result is a cohesive body of energetic yet lush textures, polyrhythmic percussion, and soulful vocals.” – OWSLA


“It’s been two years since Vindata members Branden and Jared launched their production and DJ project. Since then, they’ve released a debut EP on Kastle’s Symbols Recordings, remixed A-Trak, Ellie Goulding, Alex Metric, Odesza, Clean Bandit, Jack Ü, and more, reached multi-millions of plays on SoundCloud, and signed with OWSLA, who will be releasing their upcoming Through Time And Space EP.

Their sound, which has grown and adapted alongside both the club and festival scenes over the years, has always been rooted in catchy melodies, human grooves and forward thinking production. Their upcoming EP takes elements from each of their previous original and remix works—bright and energetic chords blasts, hi-res tropics, and dynamic pop structures—and pairs them with a set of talented vocalists, further defining the duo’s impressive approach to accessible dance vibes.” –NestHQ.com

PSY FiFresh Bakin Psy Fi blog 002

Standing at the galactic crossroads of connectivity and combustion is melodic music manipulator Miles Ross, aka Psy Fi. His bass heavy yet playful rhythms spark a beautiful resonance in the ear and a swagger in the hips of the beholder. His music celebrates boundless splendor that pulls you through the looking glass into another place. The music is a passionate indefinable translation of lust, sensuality and movement. 

“One of the most versatile communities in electronic music these days is that of the growing psy-trap sect. These producers use heavy bass and alien flavors to create an environment capable of immersing any size crowd and they have done so for years now, making those otherworldy noises now familiar, but ever so choice. In a genre full of powerhouse performers, one to watch is Miles Ross aka Psy Fi and his new EP Colors showcases why that is.” – The UNTZ

“I have seen things in this life that I am incapable of translating into words. In my practice I have visited realms where the imagination ends, and the terrifying beauty of infinity unfolds over and over again. If I could distill into words exactly what motivates me to create the art that I make than it would not be worth making it. Instead I have chosen the Pen. Read more

Introducing… Kaminanda

February 9, 2016

The emergence of Kaminanda’s organic skill has landed him on the crest of spiritually conscious music. His debut release “Syntropic Luminosity” in 2008 introduced the world to his signature style of world sounds marked by glitch modulation, producing a highly psychedelic audio experience which has continued to evolve throughout Kaminanda’s six studio albums.

Kaminanda’s self proclaimed mission statement is “to produce and perform music that uplifts the spirit of the listener.” He has described his style with labels like tribal elfstep, trip hop, spacefunk and gypsy step, stating that his sound is designed to take the listener on a journey reflecting the evolution of our collective consciousness.”

Having sprouted from the musically conscious region of Vancouver, Canada, his gypsy sound has hit music festivals such as Shambhala, Symbiosis, Lightning In a Bottle and Burning Man, and is internationally known at festivals like Envision, Boom and Eclipse Australia. He entwines the barrier of live and electronic perfectly, dark and light, future and ancient, constantly moving dancers back and forth through the tipping point at the center of his eclectic style.

In addition to continuing collaborations with artists like Ganga Giri, Rara Avis and Adham Shaikh, Kaminanda has worked both in the studio and on live sets with the WASSABI COLLECTIVE (2001-2004) and performed alongside artists such as Eoto, Desert Dwellers, Tipper, Ott and Bird of Prey.

Kaminanda is performing live in Reno on Thurs, February 11, 2016.
