Jonathan Belfontaine, otherwise known as Outlet, was destined to make music from the very beginning. At a young age, Jon was given a guitar by a neighbor. Soon afterward, he stumbled upon a broken amp, took it apart and put it back together into working condition. Having an incredible ear for music, he was able to pick out the notes he heard, and play along with any song. Over the years, he's played in different rock bands, including the popular local New Hampshire bands; Something and Mantra. While being influenced by different genres of rock, he was also becoming deeply integrated into the electronica scene, and of course with a healthy serving of hip hop and rap on the side. Soon he had a keyboard and was experimenting with making music of his own, with psychedelic melodies and hypnotic tones, empowered with heavy instrumentals. He has now been producing a dance oriented, groove inspired, glitchy style of music that is energetic, passionate and fun. Of course, infusing his positive vibrations and inspiring light baked into every morsel of each tantalizing song. The concoction of organic sounds whipped and blended with original bass lines and drum patterns, along with his ability to manipulate the texture and flavor of each synthesized note will leave the listener delighted in savoring every delicious layer baked into every song.
Krallspace (Alex Rivera Krall) knows a hot beat when he hears one. "Up and coming" in the Boston electronica/dub-hop scene, Alex has been serving heads with a wide array of dirty dubbed out glitchy rhythms as well a brand of breakbeat and hip-hop that is guaranteed to send a dancefloor into a frenzy. Residing in Boston, Massachusetts, Alex has been featured alongside a list of notable acts such as EOTO, Vibesquad, Alex B (of Pnuma Trio), Eliot Lipp, Two Fresh, Signal Path, and Virtual Boy over the course of the past few years. This summer, Krallspace has been working on his debut EP "Playing With Fire" that he will deliver to the hands of the public as a free download with an expected release in early November.
