Foodman
Foodman
Every so often there comes a producer who transcends the codified nature of dance music. Shokuhin Matsuri, better known as 食品まつり a.k.a foodman, is one of these artists. Part of a loose and adventurous Japanese scene, Matsuri's material is nominally based on footwork, but the genre is more of a vague influence than a foundation. Made of chintzy MIDI instrumentation, bizarre samples and a relentlessly wonky sense of rhythm, his collagist music is deviant and hard to even imagine dancing to.

Takahide Higuchi (AKA 食品まつり a.k.a foodman") has been putting out music since 2011 but he's been making music since he was in high school. He released on Бh○§† and Japanese Mutation Bootyism, and the American labels Digitalis Limited, Orange Milk and Noumenal Loom.

Now in his mid 30s, he continues to push boundaries with his sound. He's currently based in Yokohama.
KRON
KRON
Emerging from LA’s exploding synth scene, KRON are an audio visual powerhouse that turn the dance floor into hot-fucking-lava.

What started as a house band for Ghosting, a monthly art/tech danceparty held in a spacious warehouse in downtown Los Angeles’ Chinatown, became KRON as the event began drawing enormous crowds who came to watch the trio play massive, battle-cruiser sized modular synths accompanied by face-melting visuals created live using their own analog video synth.

Equal parts Giorgio Moroder, Simian Mobile Disco, sentient rogue Microsoft screen saver, and Amun-Ra (the ancient Egyptian sun god), KRON’s synth jams are forged of forbidden ancient magic and pure molten heat. This is mortal kombat-safari house-horror synth, a kind of retro futuristic galaxy implosion the human race is biologically compelled to dance to.
Diamondstein
Diamondstein
Diamondstein is an LA//Detroit-based producer that blends the lines between IDM, dark ambient electronica, and cinematic techno. His debut record, The Ridges was released in March on prolific, London-based ambient/vaporwave label Dream Catalogue, and has been described as "apocalyptic, sci-fi psychedelia" and "a harrowing journey through a dystopian future-world", drawing Diamondstein comparisons to the likes of John Carpenter, Sinoia Caves, and Goblin.

"...an arresting bout of psychedelia. By the end, you may be questioning if you've just been inceptioned with illuminati propaganda or not" - Thump

"...visions of Rasputin and double-exposed flashes of darkness and light dance through your head, accompanied by his dead-eyed, not-quite-dance music." -Bandcamp Daily

"...the perfect soundtrack to the dark underbelly of a melancholic future dystopia tinged with just the right amount of doomed romance." - The405
