Boston-based artist, Sober Rob began playing the viola when he was eight years old. The sheet music and chin-rests have been traded in for Ableton and KRK's, but complex elements of his classical background still course through the hyper-futuristic style of his production.
Rob's music sounds like a corroding machine trying to process human thoughts, combining sporadic and distorted squeaks with glitchy synths and rattling basses while incorporating soaring, fluid melodies. His live sets are a scene so hype that not a single soul believes he's sober. Whether or not he is, the world may never know.
Rob has worked alongside young needle-movers like Oshi, Alexander Lewis, and BLANDA.
Hikeii is a 20 year old producer from Aruba who made his official remix debut with an incredible flip alongside Akira Akira of Cashmere Cat & Major Lazer's "Miss You." Despite his age, his unique production and remixing abilities fusing genres such as dancehall, jersey club, and soca elements have amassed attention from icons such as GTA, Diplo, Skrillex, Louis The Child and 4B. Most recently, Hikeii premiered a mix on BBC Radio's Diplo's Revolution on Sirius XM. He's a hard figure to miss and isn't just making a name for himself in music from modeling for Jaden Smith to appearing in Justin Bieber's videos, Hikeii is definitely one to watch.
