Event Details

Balkan Bump is the newest project from trumpet player, producer and ethnomusicologist Will Magid.

Balkan Bump debuted with the single “Aymo” alongside superstar collaborators Gramatik and Talib Kweli. Gramatik quickly championed the new project; unveiling Balkan Bump's live show on his Re:Coil Tour and releasing Balkan Bump’s debut EP on his Lowtemp label imprint in 2018. Balkan Bump then blossomed to international audiences, performing at Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lightning In A Bottle and Electric Forest, and releasing collaborations with CloZee, Beats Antique, The Gift Of Gab, The Geek x Vrv, Fakear, and more.

Musically, Balkan Bump is a fusion of live instruments, world influences and lush electronic production. His releases flaunt experience as an instrumentalist and arranger, fusing energetic Balkan brass with heavy electronic production and hip-hop influences.

A specialist in augmenting musical possibility, Derek VanScoten is the producer, guitarist andEmmy-winning musician behind Cloudchord. His remarkable technical skills on the guitar give arefreshing take on atmospheric dance music, solidifying Cloudchord’s place in the world ofpsychedelic chillhop beats.For those who enjoy the ethereal sounds of Bonobo, the basslines of FKJ, and slick neo guitarstrums, Cloudchord curates a vibe of something yet untouched. His recent works, Moon Fortuneand Attunement, transport you to a New York City rooftop, where grooves and sunshine wraparound you in the midst of a hazy summer. In his latest LP, Reverence, Cloudchord bringsacoustic beats to the forefront - a departure from his usual but a cohesive body of work in themaking nonetheless. Fans can expect a continued exploration of Cloudchord’s signature guitarriffs and uplifting sounds in years to come.

Ian grew up a self-taught instrumentalist who has always been hungry to create musical ideas of his own. From a young age, he thoroughly fell in love with hip hop and the history behind it. This was his gateway into electronic beat production where he finds himself today, as he strives to create ambient compositions of sample-based sounds blended with his own instrumentation.

Ian has had the pleasure of working with some of his favorite producers of today's scene. In his short tenure as a beatmaker, his music has already earned widespread attention and support from music fans across the globe, including respected DJs and platforms such as Soulection, DJ Complexion, SiriusXM ChillBBC OneExtra, and more. While he claims to be “the official soundtrack of hummus everywhere”, this has yet to be confirmed.
