Knowa Lusion (Street Ritual)
Knowa Knowone is a Bay Area turntablist/producer and co-owner of the record label Street Ritual. Fans know Knowa as someone who vibes off of his crowd’s energy, raising them to a euphoric and ecstatic state of auditory bliss. Hailing from North Carolina, Knowa began his professional career as a DJ, producer and promoter over a decade ago. Knowa moved to the west coast during the 2000s where he quickly made a name for himself as one of the premiere music artists in the west coast underground.
Knowa Knowone has played with artists such as Noisia, Freq Nasty, EOTO, and Mimosa, playing shows around the globe and festivals including Symbiosis Gathering, Burning Man, The Boom Festival (Portugal), and Electric Picnic (Ireland). Knowa’s release with Sleepyhead as Knowsleep, released in 2008 put Knowa on the map as one of the pioneers for glitch hop and dubstep in the US. Knowa’s music combines traditional midtempo and breakbeat with deep bass, glitchy sounds, ethnic rhythms, and psychedelia to create a sound that stands out as uniquely Knowa Knowone. In 2012, Knowa will tour extensively to promote the Street Ritual label and the release of his new LP 'Champagne and Kittens' out now on 1320 Records.
Benny ‘Benjah Ninjah’ Gilbert is originally from the city of Cleveland. He grew up expressing his love for music by playing the violin in the symphony and singing in his school’s elite choir. As Benjah’s connection with music evolved over time he began to develop a passionate aptitude for expressing himself through the multi-faceted, ever expanding world of electronic music. After moving to South Lake Tahoe, CA, Benny teamed up with fellow Tahoian, Phil Harmonic. The duo began playing multitudes of shows in and around the Tahoe Basin under their CommUnity Pro-Jeckt name. This musical pair played a key role in the development of Tahoe bass culture, which is currently vibrant and flourishing!
When Benjah Ninjah made the decision to explore his own unique path of musical manifestation, he did so with passion, determination and unconditional LOVE for music. Many people agree that Benjah Ninjah is blessed with an ever blossoming, electrifying, and unique expression, which is an ample contribution to the world of BASS music. His fresh style has become a commodity in the Tahoe music scene. Benjah focuses on his roots of hip-hop infused bass, tribal and eclectic world sounds, psychedelic crunk, upbeat half-steppin, heavy bass, dubstep, and anything else that guides you through an emotional and pure journey.
Benjah Ninjah is currently playing jam packed venues in North and South Lake Tahoe, Reno, the Bay, and all over Northern California and Oregon. Benjah has played with heavy hitters like FreQ Nasty, Thriftworks, Stephan Jacobs, NastyNasty, Stylust Beats, Psymbionic, Love and Light, K Theory, Nico Luminous and many others!
We all have had that moment when the electronic dance music scene has turned from an interest into an obsession. Nathan Ramos, a.k.a. Kozmo, is no exception to this notion. Even before Kozmo was fully aware of his affinity for all things bass, a history of playing piano, bass guitar and saxophone had already solidified his passion for music. Kozmo now brings that passion to the dance floor, combining elements of hip hop, 808s and jungle into a unique soundscape that is guaranteed to ignite the dance floor. Kozmo is fortunate to have shared the stage with the likes of Pretty Lights, Skrillex, Diplo, G Jones and many more extremely talented artist, while continuously pushing his style of hip hop infused, halftime drum and bass at some of the biggest festivals on the West Coast including, Paradiso, Emissions Music Festival and Burning Man.
Up and coming Bass Music producer with roots in hiphop. Seattle based. West coast flavor originals and remixes.
