PROPHETS OF RAGE
(TOM MORELLO, TIM COMMERFORD & BRAD WILK OF RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, CHUCK D & DJ LORD OF PUBLIC ENEMY, AND B REAL OF CYPRESS HILL)

Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk of Rage Against The Machine, Chuck D and DJ Lord of Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill have lived the resistance from day one. So it’s no surprise that in the midst of 2016’s tumultuous election, the revolutionary musicians would join together as Prophets Of Rage to combat the coming storm.

While the fierce independence and enduring influence of their collective lineage is nearly impossible to overstate, these creative kindred spirits knew immediately this was a different beast. At its core, Prophets Of Rage functions not only on a love of music, but a deep belief in its power as a tool and a weapon. Woven into the band’s DNA are influences as varied as The Clash, KRS-One, and Johnny Cash, as well as the undeniable ideals and aesthetics of its predecessors: Public Enemy’s frenzied, racing textures, Rage’s jaw-melting riffs, and Cypress Hill’s manically playful party energy.

Prophets Of Rage, their internationally acclaimed, self-titled debut LP, released on September 15th, 2017, exemplifies the band’s commitment to creating a more decent and humane world. The 12 explosive tracks, produced by Brendan O’Brien, deftly fuses their diverse styles into an inventive and commanding new musical statement.

After performing headline shows at arenas and festivals around the world, Prophets Of Rage have coalesced into a fiery unit capable of playing with equal parts precision, passion and muscle. The band partners with activists and social justice organizations in cities along the way, contributing a portion of the proceeds to the fight against hunger and homelessness.

betty who

BETTY WHO

To understand where Betty Who currently stands in her career, it's best to imagine her as she often stood as a kid: solo, in front of the bedroom mirror, belting out hits, dancing like everyone's watching. Because as the Australian pop queen walked away from her record deal and into her first independent album, she had a single mandate: "I am going to be the most me I can be." That is, in part, why her third full-length statement is simply called Betty. It's pure her: a brilliant swirl of pop -- '80s, Y2K, and hyper-modern strains -- that encompasses everything from intimate artful fare to darkly sexy bangers to full-on wedding reception shout-alongs. What's more, these are songs about grown-woman emotions delivered by someone who rediscovered the drive and verve that fueled her rise through music in the first place. As Betty says, "It all came back to joy."

Danilla

DANILLA

Danilla Riyadi (known professionally by the mononym Danilla) is an Indonesian singer. Danilla released what is technically her first album at the age of seventeen. This gleeful, more poppy-sounding album was produced by an uncle's colleague, the businessman Richard Buntario. Danilla despises this album, and never talks about it, as she was forced in to do it, and the said pop sound was not how she wanted to present herself. She was also in several bands, including one called "Orca", an alternative band mostly covering British artists such as Keane and Radiohead. The singer met Lafa Pratomo, a musician and producer, in a studio session with Orion Records in 2012. By this time, she had seen music as something she would want to do seriously. Having had written several rough lyrics, Danilla was struggling to make her words go along with the melodies. Lafa came in and helped with song arrangements and gave her some of his unused materials to use; and later also producing her debut album. Telisik was released in 2014 by Orion Records, with demajors–one of Indonesian most recognizable independent labels–distributing it. The album did not chart but was met with critical acclaim, placing at number #18 on Rolling Stone Indonesia's Albums of the Year. Her second album, Lintasan Waktu, was released in 2017, with two singles accompanying it: "Kalapuna" and "Aaa". The album was nominated for Indonesian Choice Awards 2018's Album of the Year.

Phony PPL

PHONY PPL

The band we know as Phony Ppl is a mix of people, time, and sound that's been nurtured over generations in Brooklyn. They were a group of kids who started making music together during after school sessions in the homes of their creative families, and who grew up to cultivate a sound that's as much punk as is it soul. A quintet of live music blending acoustic instrumentation with electronic inputs and different vocal styles, their outlook on life and music refuses to be boxed in. Over the years, the bandmates have ebbed and flowed, but now they've reached their final form with these five original members: Elbee Thrie on vocal duties, Aja Grant on the keys, drummer Matt Byas, guitarist Elijah Rawk, and bassist Bari Bass. Their sound is a mix of soul, R&B, funk, hip hop, jazz, pop, and everything between and beyond. It's very DIY, too. They do their own songwriting, arrangement, mixing, and production. All of the bandmates come from musical families (Byas's dad is DJ Jazzy Jay of Zulu Nation) and they went to an assortment of music classes, camps, and schools around New York and the country. The benefits of all this shine through in their comfort with their instruments and use of music as a first language. But it only serves as a means to express their own ideas and sets the high standard they hold themselves to. Like their sound, they avoid being fenced into one type of performance. You might catch them on a big stage at a festival, or at a more intimate venue like the legendary Blue Note in Manhattan. But their favorite spot is somewhere outdoors where they're on a level with the crowd.

The Japanese House

THE JAPANESE HOUSE

Amber Bain, aka The Japanese House, first heard the phrase Good at Falling, when a friend showed her a video game about a square experiencing an existential crisis, she started to cry. “I thought it was the sweetest, saddest thing ever,” she says. It came at the perfect time. She had finished her long-awaited debut album, and was reaching for a title that could somehow convey the period of uncertainty and change that had inspired its songs. Over the past few years, the mystery that once surrounded The Japanese House has dissolved into a clear artistic vision. With four EPs, put out between 2015 and 2017, Bain had already released an album’s worth of material, honing the sound and feel of her intricate indie pop dreamscapes, but it has taken her until now to make Good at Falling. Partly, that’s because she has spent much of the last three years on the road, touring with Dirty Hit labelmates The 1975 and Wolf Alice, among others. If the EPs were an introduction to The Japanese House, then the album reveals a new focus, both musically and lyrically. With the exception of album closer i saw you in a dream, revisited and revised as a slow, near-acoustic album close, Good at Falling is an album of new tracks, drawn from a particularly tumultuous and transformative period in Bain’s life, recounted with admirable honesty and candour. Good at Falling may be filled with the anxiety of uncertainty, at least in terms of its lyrics, but that’s in stark contrast to the sheer size and confidence of its sound, which builds on the foundations of the EPs with added vigour and a sharp sense of focus. Most of the songs began as demos recorded by Bain on her laptop in her room in London. They were fleshed out and finished in studios in Wisconsin, Brussels and Oxford, by Bain and her collaborators BJ Burton (who has worked with Low, Bon Iver and Francis and the Lights), and with George Daniel from The 1975. While the sound is still recognisably The Japanese House, its pop structures bending slightly, thrillingly out of shape, there is the clear surfacing of a concise pop sensibility, too.

fourtwnty

FOURTWNTY

It is rare nowadays and refreshing when musicians exist slightly more than merely an enigma. With a strong courage and sincerity to make art and a simple dream often, this type of artists display a strong desire to think outside of the existing thoughts and notions.

Pioneered by Ari Lesmana, Nuwi and Roots, FOURTWNTY decided to develop their next project post “Setengah Dulu”, a mini album released in December 2014. “Setengah Dulu” is only the beginning of our effort to spread the message. We have spoiled our listeners with comfortable and chill out tunes in Indonesia. We are all multi - instrumentalists who dedicate our work to spreading the message on tolerance, peace and pluralism through well arranged and designed music.

“Lelaku” represents one’s way in defining peace, tolerance, and diversity, Lelaku itself philosophically defined as someone’s efforts to find the enlightenment in living their life that is usually unwealthy and simple. “Because of simplicity, this album can be released, innocently, and yet meaningfully, implied or even expressed”, said the producer, Roby Satria.

“To me, our music is based on honesty, either literally or analogically our songs talk bluntly about our simple life we enjoy, simplicity, at the same time, honesty, is well performed in presenting our musicality too.” said the conceptor and vocalist, Ari Lesmana. Convincingly feel our authentic ambience in bringing peace through their music. It is not only to indulge your music pleasure but to satisfy your soul.

THE USED
The Used is Bert McCracken (vocals), Jeph Howard (bass) and Dan Whitesides (drums).

A name synonymous with the alternative rock scene they have helped build, The Used have entered into a new chapter of their lives, both musically and personally. Their seventh studio album, The Canyon, released on Hopeless Records last fall is a 17-track piece of art that takes fans on a lyrical journey through the intimate psyche of Bert McCracken. Written out of pain and loss, The Canyon is tragic and haunting while also having a sense of light and energy that is unlike anything this band has put forward. While keeping the heavy hitting melodies and gut wrenching lyrics that The Used is known for, this is the most visceral and personal piece of art the band has ever released. McCracken tells us “That’s what this record is – it’s a moment of silence for what’s real.”

The intricate musical composition displayed presented itself to the band in a way it never has before. “I’ve learned as an artist that a great idea is such a gift. If I don’t stop whatever it is I’m doing, even if while driving, if I don’t pull over at that moment, then maybe I didn’t deserve the idea to begin with. I learned to respect and worship the ideas in that way, that they are and will always be something sacred. Stopping in that moment was a brand new approach for us during this process” says McCracken.

Every musical note and vocal heard on the record was recorded entirely on tape without a click track at the legendary Valentine Studio with some songs featuring string arrangements and a choir. The process was unique and unlike anything the band has done before. They would hit record and play it as if they were on stage, without a backing track. Songs weren’t played and recorded repeatedly until the magic was gone. What you are hearing is what really took place within the recording process. Every nuance was captured and with every listen you experience something new. Over the last 15 years The Used have released a collection of albums that have shaped the space of the alternative rock scene. High energy live shows, gut wrenching relatable lyrics, and melodies that blended pop sensibility and hard rock creating the perfect combination to make an everlasting impression on fans globally. The band put everything into writing and recording The Canyon and from start to finish you are submerged into an inescapable visceral universe with an ever-present sense of victory. There is nothing that has fulfilled this band more and that is evident in the closing lines of “The Nexus” – “Raise my voice, my heartbeats full, I said we are The Used, but not defeated.”

.FEAST
Indonesian music group .Feast was formed in Jakarta at some point in 2012 when members were still students in Universitas Indonesia.

This group has been catching media attention since their first single ‘Camkan’, and now heralded as one of the biggest next-generation band in Indonesia after the release of their genre-defying debut album ‘MULTIVERSES’ in September 2017.

Rayssa Dynta) claiming air time in FM radios across the archipelago and as far as Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur. Both critically-acclaimed albums marked their spot in more than 20 tear-end “best of” lists from nationwide medias each year.

.Feast is notorious for their reputation of amassing a crowd dangerous enough for stage security and utilizing collaborators and guest performers on-stage and in their recorded materials. Both of their albums include big names and new contenders alike in the Indonesian music scene, such as Mardial, Ramengvrl, Bam Mastro (of Elephant Kind), Karaeng Adjie (of Polka Wars), Oscar Lolang, Bin Idris, Sir Dandy and Rayssa Dynta.

MARCELLO TAHITOE

Since 2014, Marcello decided to use his full name Marcello Tahitoe as his stage name replacing Ello which is his childhood nickname from his mother, Diana Nasutilon.

Music wise, Marcello now play rock music more rather than pop music like the beginning of his career. There is no sudden change, because in his album called Realisits/ Idealis (2009) and Taub Mumu (2012) Marcello had slipped some rock elements to his work.

“Rock is a music genre that I like since I was a kid. However, a lot of people knows me more from my previous work which was more light and pop. As time goes by, my way in song-writing has gotten more simple, playing instruments that could be classified as basic and organic” said Marcello.”

The last 2 releases from Marcello, “Sampah Sampah Dunia Maya” and “Munafik”, not only plays a rock genre that is quite hard but also criticizes the social problems that we face everyday. For this issue Marcello commented "I did this accidentally, I could not predict the future, but I wrote from what I saw and felt and that made me excited to express it”.

Marcello is now working for his 6th studio album and in August 2019 he will release a single.

STATE CHAMPS

In just a few short years, New York’s State Champs have managed to become one of the biggest and most exciting voices in pop-punk: the band, made up of vocalist Derek DiScanio, guitarists Tyler Szalkowski and Tony Diaz, bassist Ryan Scott Graham and drummer Evan Ambrosio have fostered a loyal and dedicated fanbase through their inventive take on the genre—a certain ascending melodicism, bouncy power chords, infectious hooks and a level of band-to-fan transparency unique to them.

After two years touring their second studio album Around the World and Back (debuted at No. 30 on the Billboard 200, 15,000 copies sold in the first week) on a global level, the quintet is ready to give their fans an in-depth glance into their lives like never before. State Champs will re-release a deluxe version of the album May 5th, complete with hour-and-a-half tour DVD, live versions of “Elevated” and “All You Are Is History,” acoustic versions of the singles “Secrets” and “Losing Myself,” as well as two brand new songs, “Slow Burn” and the tour-referencing “Hurry Up and Wait.”

“We used to love watching old band DVDs growing up and that’s what made us want to be in bands. I still watch them to this day. It’ll give everyone a chance to see everything behind the scenes and how everything goes down, traveling as much as we do and the connection that we have between us, the band, and our crew and our fans,” frontman DiScanio explains. “We’ve always done little short, funny tour recaps but we wanted to do something different than that this time, a full feature. It’s got live footage from the tour we did with Neck Deep. It gets emotional at parts and it’s really funny at parts. There are different sections for different parts of the world. There’s an Australian leg, a Japan leg, a UK leg and an American leg.”
