Ceschi + Factor Chandelier
     (with live band)
Ceschi Ramos & friends
-from New Haven, CT

-Ceschi Ramos is a rapper and singer from New Haven, Connecticut who has been hopping genres and spilling guts for the better part of two decades.He has been seen outside venues at 3am in Germany playing an acoustic guitar and singing to people that didn’t want the show to end. He has written poems to fans from behind bars whilst locked up on bogus marijuana charges. He has suffered a spiral fracture of the humerus while arm wrestling a marine in Hawaii. He has recorded with and toured alongside some of independent rap music’s most influential figures, including Sage Francis, Busdriver and Astronautalis. He has been in bands described as hardcore, crunk rap, lo-fi synth pop, Latin progressive and psych-jazz-rap. He has crafted abstracted and personal narratives mining the depths of depression and heights of hope. He has slept on countless floors when hotels weren’t in the touring budget and lost girlfriends and jobs all for the love of creating and performing.

Ceschi was born with four fingers on his right hand, which served as partial inspiration for the name of his DIY record label, Fake Four, Inc. Those who have worked with him describe Ceschi as one of the most artist-friendly labelheads out there, a rare breed who values art over profit almost to a fault. Since 2008, he has curated a roster of wildly original and critically praised talent and put out albums from the likes of Open Mike Eagle, Buck 65, Sister Crayon and Dark Time Sunshine in addition to his solo records The One Man Band Broke Up and Broken Bone Ballads.

An engaging, theatrical live performer, Ceschi Ramos has treated entire venues like a stage, viewing the middle of the audience or an empty barstool as good a place as any to perform a soul-baring folk song or tongue-twisting rap track. Ceschi once described himself in song as “a martyr at most… a failure at least” and said that, “In the eyes of history I’ll be no more than a leaf on a tree.” He knows what it is to suffer for his art and is aware that music exploring the ugliness and sorrow of the human condition will always exist on the fringes of a game dominated by disposable escapism and expensive publicists. Yet he still pours everything he has into his craft, and on any given night you can find him tracking vocals at his cousin’s New Haven studio, warmly greeting fans and friends at a dive bar merch booth or rapping double-time in Japan or Europe for audiences that often don’t speak his language, but are able to see the giant heart at the core of it all.

Mestizo And The Heavy Twelves 
-from Los Angeles, CA
-The esteemed underground rapper Mestizo has teamed up with The Heavy Twelves, a Los Angeles based electro-psych-beat duo formed by Egadz, for this extremely rare, limited picture disc vinyl & digital release entitled 'Big Bad Death.'

Mestizo shines brightest in the shadows. His webs of words - woven with otherworldly precision - writhe with hardship's wisdom and power in triumph. The nomadic veteran of the underground, though modest, has a bountiful history of influence in art and prolificity in its creation. With his psychic osmosis of the many cultures and experiences in which he had thrived, Mestizo has proven himself an honest and unique interpreter of the world in which we live.

At the helm of Big Bad Death's production, The Heavy Twelves include a wide array of synthesized sounds and prominent percussion with intricately recorded drum patterns. They obsess over pushing and pulling, and turning and tuning knobs until each and every sound conforms to the aesthetic. The music is full of heavy synth bass, catchy melodies, and interesting noise, but always sounds like a train that could run off the tracks at any second...and in certain ways, it always does.


Little Wings
-from California
-“Kyle Field, professionally known as Little Wings, is a living legend. He is the modern embodiment of the traveling bard and the singing troubadour. Kyle’s discography is vast and impressive, full of tunes that are plucked from the lexicon of great American songwriting. On his latest effort, EXPLAINS, he crafts melodies so haunting and familiar; it’s as if he’s not composing them at all. He is tapping into something greater, acting as a vessel for the collective unconscious that is folk music.

This is an album that is immediately accessible and also unfolds slowly, revealing greater depth with each listen. Kyle’s lyrics are direct yet poetic, funny yet sad. EXPLAINS is a fantastic record that celebrates the enduring spirit of a great artist. Its release on WOODSIST is all too fitting – a label whose very foundation seems based on lasting creative integrity.” – Alex Bleeker


E-turn
-from Orlando, FL
-Iranian-American  emcee/singer,  E-Turn, steps  into  her  craft  with  a  carnal  yet  cerebral approach  as  she  masterfully  bridges  the  gap between  gritty  rap  and  soulful  singing.  With definitive  passion,  E-Turn  wields  a  message of  triumph  to  her  audience.  She  is  part  of eclectic  indie  hip  hop  label  Fake  Four  Inc, which  houses  artists  like  Ceschi,  Myka  9, Open  Mike  Eagle,  Astronautalis,  and Busdriver.  She  is  also  part  of  a  creative collective  in  her  hometown,  Orlando,  called Second  Subject  which  was  started  by Swamburger  of  Solillaquists  of  Sound.
