AEG Presents: MadeinTYO w/ K Swisha

Madeintyo does not have your typical rapper backstory - the son of a Naval Officer, he moved around frequently until his family landed in Tokyo for his high school years. Influenced by the foreign culture around him and inspired by his brother 24hrs (a successful artist in his own right) Madeintyo began to take music seriously. He uploaded a song to his brother's SoundCloud page and a movement was born – named The Private Club. His bass-heavy production influenced a new genre of rap music with a playful approach to lyrics. He was the first artist in his lane to break at radio, opening the doors for many new artists. WSG: K Swisha

React Presents: Whethan

17-year old Chicago native Ethan Snoreck, better known by his stage name Whethan, has wasted no time in releasing some of this year's most upbeat electronic tracks. His Soundcloud is already adorned with millions of views, specializing in rhythmically driven remixes of the likes of TyUs, Louis the Child, and Zayn. Whethan's stage name came from a school nickname that his friends made up. Later at the age of 16, he would end up becoming the youngest producer ever to release a record on Australia's leading electronic label, Future Classic. Now Whethan finds himself getting booked on festivals such as Snowglobe, UpNorth, and HARD Summer while in his senior year of high school. Expect to see great things in Whethan's future, as his highly anticipated original releases will include features from the likes of Skrillex and Flux Pavilion. His debut original entitled "Can't Hide" has reached an impressive 3 million Spotify streams, and you can expect to see plenty of more exciting tracks coming up in 2017.

Modern English w/ The Science Fair & DJ Pleasure Kitten

The first album in 30 years from the original line-up of the post-punk legends. Bands are like families, bound by something deeper than friendship - and liable to implode just as irrevocably. Yet that familial bond can equally draw you back, and so it is that four-fifths of the original Modern English have recorded their first album together in 30 years. Take Me To The Trees not only reconnects the band to their roots, in the fervent and fecund world of late 1970s/ early 1980s post-punk Britain, but they have co-produced it with Martyn Young of Colourbox and M/A/R/R/S fame, whose last production job was 1986. Moreover, the album's beautiful cover is by venerated art director Vaughan Oliver, whose very first sleeve design was Modern English's 'Gathering Dust' single in 1980.

AEG Presents: Ibeyi w/ theMIND

Lisa and Naomi Diaz are the daughters of the late Cuban percussionist Anga Diaz. Naomi plays percussive instruments, the Cajon and the Batas, while Lisa plays piano. Together the twins have learned the songs of their father's culture, Yoruba.

Ibeyi sing in English and Yoruban, and have created a minimalist sound that merges elements of their heritage with their natural love of modern music as teenagers growing up in Paris, citing artists such as James Blake and King Krule amongst their wide range of influences. WSG: theMIND

Murder By Death

On the surface, Murder By Death is a Bloomington, IN quintet with a wry, ominous name. But behind the geography and moniker is a band of meticulous and literary songwriters matched by a specific brand of brooding, anthem-riding balladry and orchestral indie rock.

Murder By Death's path began in the early 2000s as most Midwestern college-town groups do, by playing to small crowds at ratty venues and frenzied house parties. While many of their formative-year scene-mates failed to make it much further than campustown's borders, Murder By Death translated their anonymous beginnings into a 10+ year career founded on a bedrock of five full-length albums, tireless D.I.Y. touring and performing ethics, and, most importantly, a dedicated, cult-like fanbase.
