Samuel Paradise Album Release w/ Futexture & eMe – [electronic]
June 24 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Samuel Paradise is a sample based producer based out of Asheville NC, on a mission to spread bass, love and mischief across the southeast, and beyond. His music dances along the edges of genre labels, and is more easily described in emotions. He is a digital griot writing sonic fables, intended to remind the listener to laugh, love, and cry.
“As driving as it is playful. Its richly textured and rhythmically complex, making it deeply pleasurably to listen to. It’s a journey into a trippy wonderland of squishy, splacky, joyful sounds that leave me longing to go further down the rabbit hole.”
— Ali Mcghee, The Asheville Grit
Samuel Paradise has been honored to perform alongside a wide vaiety of artists, including Dieselboy, King Britt, Henry and the Invisibles, Panty Raid, Flying Lotus, Blockhead, Break Science, Dr. Fameus, Sunshine Jones, Elliot Lipp, Teebs, R/D, PlayLow, Prefuse 73, Freddy Todd, Futexture, Push/Pull, Marley Carroll, Panther God, Aligning Minds, and many more supremely talented artists.

Some people write music, others create their own universe.
For Asheville based producer and multi-instrumentalist David Krantz, the latter is a way of life.
Through a futuristic blend of bass-heavy dance music, jazz-driven harmonies, and contemplative downtempo dreamscapes, David skillfully and playfully weaves a highly personal sound that truly defies classification. Traversing a wide range of tempos and genres, his versatility is bolstered by creative sound design, acoustic instrumentation, and crisp production.
Futexture has released music through Gravitas Recordings, Bluetech’s Critical Beats for the Climate, Afro Monk Records, Circuitree Records, Forward Thinking Sounds, and Kalya Scintilla’s Merkaba Records.
With influences from Dave Brubeck to Dave Tipper, Futexture’s music transcends the typical barriers between electronic and traditional composition. Exceptional command over detail, depth of expression, and the ability to perform in a multitude of settings has earned this 24 year old producer accolades from some of the most respected minds in forward thinking electronic music.
