October 71

"In today’s over-saturated and all-too-familiar musical landscape, it’s refreshing to see artists create a project that doesn’t necessarily fit into society’s drab expectations. October ‘71 operate in that ethos, an ensemble that features Jesse Sattler, Sam Catherman, Andrew Pendergrast, Jamel Zuñiga, Rob Stokes, Sean Lesczynski, and Louis Puech. In May of last year on the rooftop of DC9, the band came up with a script that would become the anthesis for their upcoming self-titled album. The story is about friendship told through a drama-filled narrative based in Pittsburgh in 1971. Their sound is a mesmerizing, jazzy part-blues, part-experimental set steeped in a delightful exuberance—a feeling reciprocated by a lively audience. While October ‘71 is a new moniker for The Rob Stokes Band, Stokes himself is no stranger to the music community. He has garnered respect from many in his eight years living in D.C.; doing his part to cultivate and support a thriving scene and collaborating with other artists. His most recent collaboration was with the multi-talented Tony Cruise; the duo co-produced, Live At The Heartbreak Hotel—the last record under Stokes’ name and worth a listen." -

Tony Cruise

"Washington, D.C. producer / sound designer Tony Cruise (formerly known as Tony Kill) makes music for you to get lost in, however you feel fit. Late in 2017, he shared a gorgeous, simultaneously sparse and full EP called Thought Crimes, a largely collaborative effort I’ve previously described as “groovily ambient.” A wild slow-bounce bootleg later, he shared May’s African-American Psycho, a collaborative tape with D.C. rapper SIR E.U, 10 abrupt, sometimes-muddled, and beautifully thrash-y genre-swirling tracks." He also composes music for visual campaigns by the likes of Kendal and Kylie Jenner, Nasa, Vice, Teyana Taylor, Pacific Sunwear and MissGuided. -
