Warp 9’s obsession with sound began a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. It has since evolved through several different phases, taking many turns over the lightyears as they have shared in all sorts of musical adventures. Finally landing in Miami, Warp9 has united forces to decode the information beamed here from a distant star and deliver it to you through their music: spaced out grooves served with a dose of galactic funk that will navigate you into uncharted territories.
Warp 9 consists of Adam Shechter, an accomplished multi-instrumentalist and graduate from Berklee College of Music in Sound Design; and Jeff Glazer, an experienced controllerist and veteran DJ of over 12 years. When performing live, they incorporate a unique blend of live guitar, synths, sound manipulation and DJ’ing. Warp9 has just finished their second EP, "Starbass Alpha", due to be released soon on Swingset Sounds Records.
Miami Producer Eric Dez performs his original world-influenced dubstep tracks with musicality and stage presence. Blurring the lines between studio and stage, his custom designed live show setup allows for a wide range flexibility and variety to deliver a true “live” electronic experience. The foundation of his live performance show feature Dez on Guitar, Guitar Synth, keyboards and samplers. Tension filled lush build ups and huge drops that release into tasteful grime bass lines which often unfold into deep dubby ragga grooves.
Eric has performed 4 times at the world famous Ultra Music Festival and at Earthdance Music Festivals on both coasts. He has performed along side Visionary Painter Alex Grey, and his music has appeared in several video productions and documentaries including “Templayed” a visual/music production which also features Electric Skychurch.
Eric has two LP releases to date including “The Star Seed Journey” released by PHIsonica, a downtempo world music project he formed in 2007. “The counterpointing sounds ...draw the listener deeper and deeper” says The Miami New Times about Dez’s downtempo music. Dez has also played Guitar and bass in several bands ranging from electro clash to World Music. He has also has a brief history as a performing VJ playing for legendary artists Infected Mushroom, Erick Morillo, Carl Cox, James Holden, Josh Wink and Pete Tong.
