Fusing his organic hip hop roots with lush and experimental electronic composition, CharlestheFirst has developed a danceable style steeped in dreaminess and pyschedelia. Born in 1996 in the Sierra Nevada mountains, Charles has been heavily influenced by nature and the adventure that coincides with it.


‘Wax Future’s name mirrors their sound. Vinyl records are colloquially called “wax”, and in the studio the duo fill their music with their own organic instrumental samples. The duo’s rendition of the blues, jazz, rock or funk is then throttled into the future with melodic synthesizer work and crisp, hard-hitting drum tracks. Their production style is progressive while also harkening back to original experiments into electronic production by conventional musicians i.e. Pink Floyd. Wax Future makes live electronic music with tasteful improvisation and deep roots in hip-hop and soul.’

The band is made up of Connor Hansell (synths & production), Keith Wadsworth (lead guitar & synthesizer), and Gralin Hughes (live digital art). They honed their live performances through slots at F.A.R.M fest alongside of Papadosio and Eoto, and several headlining and support slots in their hometown alongside heavy hitters MiTiS, Mat Zo, and Haywyre. They enjoy the daytime as well as late night where you may have recently caught them supporting Random Rab, and Tauk at Midsummer Night Dream. Their 2nd EP ‘Keep the Memories’ Drops 8.28 via Funkadelphia Recordings.


Hailing from Boston MA, Eartha Harris a.k.a. Living Light is on a mission to uplift and inspire her listeners. Danceable yet soothing, melodic, euphoric, and sometimes mysterious – the music of Living Light offers glimpses into fantastical worlds filled with fluttering flutes, deep dub baselines, and sparkling electronic fairydust, topped off with the occasional sample-drop of knowledge; just enough to pull anyone out of the daily grind and inspire daydreams of what could be. Eartha has spent a lifetime producing music. With coast-to-coast festival appearances, a Beatport chart-topping album, and releases on both Desert Trax and Merkaba Music continuing to roll out, she shows no signs of stopping any time soon.
