LOVE AND LIGHT:
... After a highly regarded and reputable 2011 summer festival tour---including a smashing Saturday night headlining set on the "Bamboo Stage" at Lightning in a Bottle, an adrenalized performance at "The Hive" directly after Tipper on Saturday night at The Bounce Festival, and two four-track EP's that have both landed themselves in the top 5 of Addictech's yearly charts for 2010 and 2011---Love and Light are opening the flood gates full force with the fall release of their full length album, Galactic Booty Activation. Containing nine tracks of savage, squishy, funkadelic thickness, the album promises to turn heads, move bodies, and fiercely uplift peoples' state-of-mind on dance floors across the globe. In the midst of completing a 20-stop U.S. fall tour, Love and Light are far from finished in 2011. The duo are heading to the Land Down Under to Headline the acclaimed "Deliverance Festival," which in 2010 housed some of bass music's best producers and live acts, including iLL Gates, Opiuo, MiMOSA, Eprom, and Ana Sia. Being only a year-and-a-half old, Love and Light Music has quickly moved into the hearts of tens of thousands of people, with a world-wide fan base spanning over 150 countries. Whether you are listening on your speakers at home or dancing on a jammed packed dance floor with your closest friends, it's clear that positive intention and a selfless, deeply rooted desire to uplift humanity to a higher state of consciousness sparkles out of both the speakers and the hearts of the duo.
The Los Angeles-based electronic-music Don known as Kraddy has always brought the undiluted sound of the underground to new audiences. From his work as a founding member of the infamous Glitch Mob to his groundbreaking solo work, Kraddy (born Matthew Kratz) has always been known for shattering genre conventions while moving crowds everywhere from Red Rocks to L.A.’s famed Low End Theory club. From his breakthrough 2008 hit “Android Porn” to the innovative bangers comprising his latest e.p. Labyrinth (Alpha Pup), Kraddy continues to hybridize hip-hop, dubstep and dancehall with face-melting panache and rock and roll bravado. But the man himself was as surprised as anyone when the mainstream crossed over to him. With its epic melody, dramatic builds, and speaker-shuddering bass drops, “Android Porn” was hailed as the anthem of the decidedly maverick “glitch hop” movement, getting remixed by everyone from Mochipet to breakbeat icon Si Begg. Soon, however, the song started appearing beyond the sweaty, crowded dancefloors that are Kraddy’s mainstay, getting licensed for TV shows like “America’s Best Dance Crew” and “America’s Got Talent”; a Hungarian dance troupe’s outrageous performance to the track quickly became a YouTube sensation. Having a format-obliterating viral smash made it easier when it became clear his alliance with West Coast electronic-music legends the Glitch Mob was ending. “It was an amicable split—we all agreed I’m more of a solo artist,” Kraddy recalls. “With the Mob, it was hard to have a clear voice; I was restrained—it grew apparent that I had a different vision then they did. ‘Android Porn’ kicked a door open in my mind, and I saw a whole host of new possibilities.”
