About MPEACH (Dutty Artz, NYC/Venezuela):

MPeach (a.k.a. Mariana Martín Capriles) is a multidisciplinary artist born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. Her experimental music is strongly influenced by a combination of Changa Tuki (Venezuela’s native ghetto-dance music), Afro-Caribbean beats and melodies rooted in traditional Venezuelan folk culture. She draws from a wide variety of musical inspirations, including “dembow, soukous, heavy bass, spanish reggae, hip hop, 4×4, grime, dancehall and kuduro,” making for a dynamic sound that stands all on its own.
MPeach is part of an emerging movement of musicians (i.e., Pocz & Pacheko, Cardopusher, DJ Yirvin, Sunsplash, Ernesto Pantin, FLYBVK) whose music is profoundly impacted by their individual cultural roots while reconstructed to reflect their global Internet-Age upbringing.
About GEKO JONES (Que Bajo, Dutty Artz, NYC)

Renowned by top DJs and producers of the digital cumbia scene in Latin America and European bass-pundits alike, Geko Jones is one of select few DJs pushing forward the Latin agenda in a global tropical bass scene. A founding member of both the New York Tropical and Que Bajo?! parties in New York, and a partner and co-owner of the Dutty Artz label with producer Matt Shadetek and DJ /Rupture, his mixes span the tropical hemispheres and weave together hours of globally sonic dancefloor mayhem.
