The HoC // 2013 Highlight Reel
The House of Creatives produced and curated 5 events across 5 cities in 2013. This video shows a recap of all the artists The HoC had the pleasure of working with.
Dave1 of Chromeo
Melding elements of 80s synthesizer New Wave, earnest funk entreaties, and plenty of sheen and schmaltz, Chromeo consistently challenge their listeners to consider questions of irony lurking amidst their electro workouts. Dave 1, lead vocalist and guitarist of the duo, challenges assumptions by asserting the sincerity and inherently genuine nature of Chromeo's music.
Having spent much of 2012 honing their live show with the likes of Grouplove, Electric Guest and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr., The Colourist begin 2013 holed up in a small studio in Southern California. It’s there that Adam Castilla (vocals, guitar), Maya Tuttle (drums, vocals), Kollin Johannsen (guitar, bass), and Justin Wagner (bass, keys) committed their pop-fueled, indie-bred rock to tape before embarking on their first tour which included appearances at Coachella along with support shows with Metric and Youngblood Hawke and Atlas Genius.
Based out of Australia, but now settling in Los Angeles, the four-piece recently found inspiration in the glowing year-round Californian sun, set up a home studio, and eagerly started experimenting with new sounds and projects to ease their creative itch. Proving that time is of importance, the band, anchored by producer Benjamin Plant, have spent the last year crafting and perfecting new material glittered with dream-gazey synth and matured song writing to deliver a new chapter in Miami Horror's evolution.
In 2006, Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise decided to make a disco influenced project; however, both were busy with other projects and their work “never got too serious.” On July 9, 2012, Poolside released Pacific Standard Time. The album was put together with no serious goal in mind, only to make groovy, daytime disco sounds as a result. The LP takes you to a sunny California paradise, and as Pitchfork music blog says, "It's a disco album that slinks along with the urgency of a teenager on the first day of summer vacation."
Theophilus London is an American rapper from Brooklyn, New York City. London was born in Trinidad in the late 1980s and was raised in Brooklyn, New York City. According to critics, London's "genre-bending approach draws from a range of styles, from soul-pop and post-punk to electro and contemporary R&B," citing influences that include Michael Jackson and Prince as well as Kraftwerk and the Smiths.
YACHT is a band with primary members Jona Bechtolt and Claire L. Evans based out of Los Angeles, California, Marfa, Texas and Portland, Oregon. After forming in 2008, the band has worked with such artists as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Vampire Weekend, The Chemical Brothers, and Phoenix.
