Yumi Zouma
Yumi Zouma began as a project in 2013 between close friends from Christchurch, New Zealand. Their fledgling ideas were never intended to enter the real world, but following an exchange with the Cascine label, the far-flung New Zealanders were encouraged to divulge the creations from their hard drives. The following months were spent readying their debut EP with little expectation for the band to become a live reality.
In January 2014, their debut EP launched to overwhelming acclaim – the music lauded as being undeniably stylish, underplayed and honest. The months that followed saw the band repeatedly climb to #1 on the Hype Machine, sell through two pressings of records and collaborate with former Gothenburg heroes, Air France.
That spring, Yumi Zouma took their once-withdrawn project to sold-out theaters across Australia supporting Chet Faker, to club shows in North America and to festivals throughout Europe. The band was then tapped by Lorde to open for the star on her arena tour of New Zealand.
Yumi Zouma now returns with their anticipated second EP, bookending their era of intimate and restrained short-form releases. The new tracks are just as effortless and engaging as expected, but they also tell the story of a band evolving. Lush, electronic productions buoy key tracks and the vocal deliveries are increasingly sophisticated.
Blurring the line between pop aesthetics and studio science, Brett reps Washington, D.C., making music that celebrates the contrast between bright melodies and stark lyrics. The recent album for Cascine is arguably one of the label's stickiest, most immediate records to date. Crafted of dynamic, honest and mature songs, lovers of ageless pop will find much to appreciate in both the familiar constructs of their sound and in its alluring thematic qualities.
Lemonade (DJ SET)
Lemonade (DJ SET)
Lemonade formed in San Francisco, initially crafting visceral, psychedelic and vaguely tropical musical journeys that pulled from the group's myriad influences.

In 2010 they released Pure Moods as an effort to steer their schizophrenic palate through pop waters. Combining warped rave, R&B, grime, a variety of global rhythms, and other styles too numerous to list, the record was an important stepping stone for an act only beginning to discover the emotional potency of out-and-out pop songwriting.

Two years later, that transformation was complete with Diver, showing Lemonade operating as a focused unit, one more interested in speaking to your heart than blowing your mind.

Lemonade now return with their third studio album, Minus Tide, which finds inspiration in the beloved 80's sophisti-pop of Prefab Sprout, the melodic ambience of Gigi Masin, the Ibiza-informed electronic forays of Primal Scream and the windswept, Balearic disco of mid-2000's Gothenburg heroes, Studio. The band's serene, cerebral sounds have reached a new apex on Minus Tide – the songwriting undeniably more mature and sophisticated. Still living in North Brooklyn and contributing to the community's cultural patchwork, a sense of urban-itchiness is present in the music, as well as a growing environmental concern for the coastal regions of their Bay Area youth. Additionally, Minus Tide is a celebration of all forms of wanderlust and the eternal pursuit of pleasure through exploration.
