Dark Time Sunshine
Nine years after the release of their critically acclaimed ANX, Dark Time Sunshine is back with their third full-length, Lore. Comprising Seattle emcee Onry Ozzborn (Grayskul, Oldominion) and Chicago producer Zavala, DTS has been on the cutting edge of indie hip hop since 2009, behind genre-bending production and a heady lyrical approach all their own. Lore builds on the psych-rap foundation of their previous efforts while shifting into new terrain that incorporates the aesthetics each artist has explored in recent years, and the end product is an album brimming with hope.
Lore explores themes of breaking cycles, self-determination, and rebirth. It contains the most focused and impassioned writing of Onry Ozzborn’s two-decade career, and Zavala ties it all together with rich textures, bright synths, and cracking drum breaks. For this or any other trying year, it’s the perfect soundtrack to sticking the landing over hell and surviving with you and yours intact.

Dynamic vocals, hard-hitting beats, and turntable cuts; are the sounds listeners have come to know from this Seattle-based performing artist & producer/DJ. With a background in classical violin, jazz guitar, and an audio engineering degree from the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, Torbjørn brings a diverse sound to both dance music and hip-hop fans. 2022 will see the release of new several new songs, these new releases showcase a unique blend of his singing and rapping. Both raw and digitally processed, listeners will hear hints of vocal inspiration from the likes of Atmosphere and Run the Jewels. Instrumentally, the music features hard hitting trap, melodic future bass, and glitch/IDM sounds akin to Flume, and RL Grime. Despite such an eclectic list of contemporary influences, Torbjørn’s work comes off palatable to many different crowds; as heard on record labels Street Ritual, MalLabel, and ShadowTrix. Coming off two national tours with Ceschi and Dark Time Sunshine (Fake Four Records) and an appearance at Bass Oasis Festival, both his live performances and DJ sets are more impressive than ever. Profound lyricism, matched by bombastic beats, all accompanied by cinematic visuals; experiencing Torbjørn live in concert brings the music to a whole new level.
Habibi Guns consists of Luc Vernooy & Redha. They are both a part of hip-hop/punk collective & band Inbranders. Now taking a small detour into combining oldskool hip-hop beats with jungle, techno, and underground/abstract hip hop
