TWINKIDS is the electronic pop project of Tokyo native singer-songwriter Gene Fukui and Floridian pianist-producer Matt Young.

Following releases on CSCN (Cascine), Yellow Year Records, and an official remix for Dawn Richard, the LA-based duo has garnered support from The Fader, Stereogum, The Burning Ear, and Sirius XM. TWINKIDS live shows and DJ sets begin this summer with an EP due later this year.

raener is daniel fox, willem van boldrik, zach bilson, and daniel vanchieri. they live in an aging craftsman in los feliz, ca where they indie rock music with their hands and voices.
in the summer of 2015, after making music together for a few months in a dewy garage in downtown los angeles, they packed as much equipment they could fit in the back of a big blue van and drove to small farm in eastern oregon. here they recorded what would become their upcoming eps. while the eps are set to be released within the next few months the boys have wasted no time cultivating their sound and crafting an explosive live set.
they are also very nice boys.

12am // King Henry
New Mexico native Henry Allen, aka King Henry, had no idea when me moved to Southern California at age 18, that his studies in classical music would lead to a life as a music producer. Since earning his degree in classical guitar, he has performed at major festivals such as Coachella and Electric Forest and scored the feature film The Phoenix Project, all while helping found Los Angeles beat-maker collective Team Supreme. Now more focused on making his mark in the pop music world, King Henry already has major placements under his belt in the past year, including production on Angel Haze’s Dirty Gold LP, and official remixes for Banks, Sophia Black, and RL Grime. His recent bootleg remix of Diplo and Skrillex’s Jack U single Take U There received praise from the duo and gained a spot in Skrillex’s coveted Skrillex Selects earlier this year. King Henry’s forthcoming first solo EP is slated to release later this year.
