Lady Sasquatch is a group of four musicians who blur the lines between a live band, a DJ and an endangered mystical mammal. Their music consists of a variety of glitched out heavy weighted hip hop beats, electronic soundscapes laced with organic spirit and a mix of rhymes and melodic grit smuggled from the demented minds of their two vocalists. Using samples, synths, guitars, live percussion, deep bass and even the... occasional effected trombone, their sets are designed for the dance floor combining elements of Indie Pop, hip-hop/club and EDM. Along with an extensive catalog of originals, Lady Sas sets are known to include unexpected mash-ups and live remixes.
Bouncing off the streets of Boston, Massachusetts comes the newly formed electronica duo NeTempo. Composed of long time friends and collaborators Greg Nickerson (aka DJ Jaminic) and Joe Petit, the two have been lighting the underground Boston scene on fire with their versatile blend of house, dub, and breakbeat rhythms.
With influences ranging from the deep house styling’s of DJ Dan and Sebastian Leger, the psychedelic madness of Simon Posford, and the lighter down tempo feel of Bonobo and Bluetech, Nickerson and Petit have been putting together complex sets that delight audiences with tastes of the exotic while anchoring them with touches of the familiar.
And while Nickerson has extended his musical reach to broader audiences in opener and set break performances for artists like EOTO, Big Gigantic, Orchard Lounge, and Benga, teaming up with Petit has allowed the duo to tighten their discipline and give the project a more dynamic feel.
And though the duo are constantly improving and expanding into riskier musical territory, NeTempo is already throwing dance floors into ecstatic motion with headlining performances in the greater Boston area.
So keep your eyes peeled and your ears open, because every day Nickerson and Petit are finding new ways to pleasure your eardrums. And with an ever-expanding library of unique, original beats being produced everyday; NeTempo might be just your speed.
