Moon King is the alias of producer, singer and songwriter Daniel Benjamin. Born in Toronto, the musician spent 2016 in Detroit, where the musically fertile and offbeat neighborhood of Hamtramck became both his home and the inspiration for a new set of recordings. Hamtramck '16 documents his arrival into a new and unfamiliar environment combined with a growing obsession for underground dance music, a sound and spirit that has always felt right at home in Detroit. Collaborating with local artists and musicians, and having the freedom to stretch out after several years of constant touring, Daniel put together a completely new band with a sound drawing from dance music's early days, from synthpop, disco and house music up through the more pop-oriented songcraft of the Bee Gees or Prince. Daniel's attention to detail in production, and willingness to break the mold of what he sees as his own potential, have made him an interesting figure to watch. With Hamtramck '16 he has created a lo-fi pop gem that will leave listeners eager to hear what comes next.

Persons
Conceived amidst the clutter of dank DIY loft spaces in Montreal's Griffintown, Nick Persons began in earnest as the vehicle for multi-disciplinary artist and producer Jackson Darby's shakily constructed sound collages. Expanding to include DJ Choozey Dollarbin$z for live manipulations and rhythmic destabilization, the project eventually grew out of its dilapidated foundations in hip hop and male given name, adding members Katie McDonald and Benita Whyte who bring their vocal, visual, dance and performance stylings to the quartet. The now Hamilton, Ontario based, PERSONS delivers sets of high energy dance music that doesn't forget its free-form, noisey roots. Through improvised choreography, hypnotic repetition and glitter glazed visuals, they seek to express, include, move and integrate its audience into their singular brand of immersive ecstasy while experimenting with different modes of performance.
