Kendrick Nicholls also known as Kendo hails from the quiet location of Asheville NC. As one half of the production duo, Two Fresh, Kendo brings a sound that gives Soul music a new beginning. While not playing live in the trio, he's written music ranging from boom bap instrumentals to electro breaks. Having released tracks on both Labcoat compilation albums "Hi" and "Summer Sampler 2011", Kendo delivers live sets that take you through a journey from the 1950s to 2011……and back. Check his music at www.labcoated.com.
BOOKWORMHidden away in an unassuming mountain valley at the end of a winding gravel road, a sound has been brewing slowly and deliberately. A sum of many influences, moods and experiences – a collection of songs has been carved out of both electronic and organic instrumental tones. Together these melodies play out like the soundtrack for an overcast winter’s day – a time for reflection and occasionally introversion.
This body of work is Bookworm’s debut album “Outnumbered by Colors” to be released through the Lab Coat collective of Asheville, North Carolina. Isaac LeFever, the composer behind Bookworm will be offering the EP in three installments during the first half of 2011 which includes “Part 1: Hue”, “Part 2: Saturation” and “Part 3: Brightness”.
JABLESJP Maywald – better known by his beatsmith moniker Jables – is a Nashville, Tennessee born electronic music producer. Currently based out of Asheville, NC, Jables has set his attention on the pursuit of new rhythms by dabbling with a wide spectrum of sound and a myriad of different styles. With an entirely unstructured way about his work, every finished product falls into place in a methodical and distinct way; often bewildering people with odd timing and heavy use of peculiar rhythms and song structure.
On the live tip, Jables has been proud to share the stage with such artists/influences as Two Fresh, Nosaj Thing, Ana Sia, Devonwho, Alex B, Big Gigantic and Bookworm to name a few.
