Random Rab
Random Rab
Emerging from his own distinct corner of the West Coast electronic music scene, Random Rab offers a powerful and unique contribution to sonic exploration. Often referred to as “The Master of Emotion” his music is patently beautiful and melodic. With diverse influences ranging from trip-hop, classical and Arabic to bass driven compositions, his songs are considered anthemic and timeless. As a multi-instrumentalist and singer, his tracks are organic, uplifting and stand on their own as a distinct genre. Listeners of all types of music can find something they can relate to in this sound. He has toured extensively across North America, including tours with Bassnectar, Shpongle, Beats Antique and headlined several festivals across the country.

There is no doubt that Rab understands a multitude of musical styles. He has been the front man of a heavy metal band, toured as a classical trumpet player, played bass in a country music band, was a scratch DJ for a jazz fusion project, was the singer for a rock band in Mexico and has collaborated with countless musicians of all styles. From acoustic performances in the Himalayas to rocking packed clubs in New York, Random Rab has found a way to connect with people of all kinds.

With a dedicated fanbase born from the San Francisco underground, Random Rab has become a Burning Man legend known for his sunrise sets that have now become one of his most sought after performances. His current popularity can often be traced to his breakout album, The Elucidation of Sorrow.. This album firmly established him as a recognizable force in the electronic music scene. His 4th album aRose, catapulted him into the state of momentum that is now taking hold internationally. His latest studio effort, Visurreal debuted in the iTunes Top 10 Electronic Charts as well as in the CMJ RPM Top 5 with several #1′s on radio stations across the country.

Sometimes performing solo and at other times featuring collaborative musicians, the live experience is focused on a high quality translation of sound that is simultaneously sexy and psychedelic.
The Monogahela
The Monogahela
The Monogahela is an electronic music composer and performer based out of Durango, CO, USA. The project formed in 2014 by Nathan Williams, producing multi-genre bass and electronic music in a range of tempos, often blending eclectic organics and cosmic soundscapes with dub and world fusion.

Since his 2015 debut EP, "Late Night Indica" set his musical trajectory in motion, the composer and producer has released two albums and has shared the stage with notable acts such as Ott, Random Rab, Illenium, Phutureprimitive, Govinda, among other talented and popular artists in today's electronic music scene.

Nathan began his journey into music at as a young child, clanking on the family piano, toy guitars, and cheap Casio keyboards. At the age of 12, his parents bought him his first electric guitar and enrolled him in lessons, where he learned scales, modes, and concepts of different genres and techniques. He was disciplined and inseparable from his instrument, and as a student, was offered a scholarship to a 5-week guitar workshop at Berkley, MA. But as a rebellious teenager, he joined a thrash-metal band with his friends instead, in which he was introduced to a stage without the creative control of the of school based performances. Thus the "Creative Alias" was born.

Before The Monogahela, there was Ts3. Ts3 was Nathan's true journey into music production. Gradually he transitioned in musical tastes, experimented with sampling, and finding inspiration from movie soundtracks, and the mellow yet profound sounds of artists M83, J Dilla, Blue Sky Black Death, and Royksopp. Following the big wave of dubstep, his interests began to shift into composing electronic bass music, where his previously "indie vibe" collided with the griminess of today's electronic sounds. Ts3 was a raw learning experience, not only in music production and developing an overall direction and sound, but as performing as a live electronic act.
