Marc E. Bassy

Marc E. Bassy is a singer-songwriter, label head and Bay Area native currently working in Los Angeles. Bassy has made a name for himself as a songwriter and collaborator over the last decade - notable projects include his gold-certified “Morning” (2016) and the double-platinum single “You & Me” featuring G-Eazy, in addition to collaborations with Kehlani, Quinn XCII, Ty Dolla $ign, Blackbear, the Martinez Brothers, G-Eazy, Cory Henry, and more. Marc left Republic Records in 2019 to release his first independent album, “Postmodern Depression,” under his own independent label, New Gold Medal, for which his 2020 US headlining tour sold out its 22-location run. Marc E. Bassy’s upcoming second independent album, “Little Men,” explores instrumentation and narrative in a new way for Bassy, as he blends his R&B/Pop sound with dance/funk of the 70’s and 80’s and fine-tuned vocal performance. Bassy’s team created the album’s key songs in a Palm Springs house - D’Angelo, David Bowie and the Beatles in the speakers, Wes Anderson projected on the walls, modular synthesizers blending with acoustic guitar. After experimenting with new equipment and instruments and writing around 80 songs with some of the world’s best musicians, Bassy landed on the final genre-bending handful. Lyrically, ‘Little Men’ talks of reconciling with one’s ego. The little mind, driven by fear, thinks of itself in comparison and in competition - in pursuit of an unrealistic and shallow idea of success and perfection, as opposed to engaging with empathy and toward community. ‘Little men’ is a confessional, a reality check, a series of experiences involving infidelity, addiction, jealousy against a backdrop of fame, passion, beauty, and triumph.

Hot Flash Heat Wave

The San Francisco trio of Adam Abildgaard, Nick Duffy, and Ted Davis have built a loyal following and constant buzz over the last several years, with the 2019 EP ‘Mood Ring' standing as their most kaleidoscopic work to date. Merging the quintessential melodies of pop's past with contemporary touches to forge something truly unique, Hot Flash Heat Wave is just starting to create their own sonic world.

Last year's EP launched the group into a realm entirely different from their previous catalogue. It is their truest-to-heart release yet, synthesizing a wide range of influences encompassing My Bloody Valentine, Frank Ocean, New Order, and Toro y Moi into something that sounds new and refreshing. Mood Ring's lead single "Glo Ride" bounces with a slight R&B tilt against a dark, trippy atmosphere, while "Sky So Blue" finds the band spiralling into full-on psychedelia, complete with layers of spell-casting keyboards and a wonderfully zonked-out breakdown.

And the future only seems brighter from here: with September's single ‘Grudge' teasing a 2021 LP, Hot Flash Heat Wave is preparing for the next step up the staircase in their colorful sonic journey, with determination to elevate their craft in the process.
