Moodie Black
Moodie Black
Often referred to as the "nine inch nails of rap" Moodie Black lends itself more to acts like The cure and Joy Division colliding head on with the spirit of west coast rap of the 90s. Their last full length record Nausea released by Fake Four, immortalized Moodie Black as the most polarizing act of the noise rap genre amongst bands such as Death Grips and Dalek. Opting to harness noise and mood in the vein of soundscape and emotion as opposed to sheer brutal force and gimmicks, MB has also managed to become one of the most prolific and memorable touring acts of the noise scene and have embraced performing across the world in settings that span high class venues and festivals, to small squats and DIY venues.

Biography
Ceschi Ramos is a rapper and singer from Connecticut who has been hopping genres and spilling guts for the better part of two decades. He has been seen outside venues at 3am in Germany playing an acoustic guitar and singing to people that didn’t want the show to end. He has written poems to fans from behind bars whilst locked up on bogus marijuana charges. He has suffered a spiral fracture of the humerus while arm wrestling a marine in Hawaii. He has recorded with and toured alongside some of independent rap music’s most influential figures, including Sage Francis, Busdriver and Astronautalis. He has been in bands described as hardcore, crunk rap, lo-fi synth pop, Latin progressive and psych-jazz-rap. He has crafted abstracted and personal narratives mining the depths of depression and heights of hope. He has slept on countless floors when hotels weren’t in the touring budget and lost girlfriends and jobs all for the love of creating and performing.

Ceschi was born with four fingers on his right hand, which served as partial inspiration for the name of his DIY record label, Fake Four, Inc. Those who have worked with him describe Ceschi as one of the most artist-friendly labelheads out there, a rare breed who values art over profit almost to a fault. Since 2008, he has curated a roster of wildly original and critically praised talent and put out albums from the likes of Open Mike Eagle, Buck 65, Sister Crayon and Dark Time Sunshine in addition to his solo records The One Man Band Broke Up and Broken Bone Ballads.

An engaging, theatrical live performer, Ceschi Ramos has treated entire venues like a stage, viewing the middle of the audience or an empty barstool as good a place as any to perform a soul-baring folk song or tongue-twisting rap track. Ceschi once described himself in song as “a martyr at most… a failure at least” and said that, “In the eyes of history I’ll be no more than a leaf on a tree.” He knows what it is to suffer for his art and is aware that music exploring the ugliness and sorrow of the human condition will always exist on the fringes of a game dominated by disposable escapism and expensive publicists. Yet he still pours everything he has into his craft, and on any given night you can find him tracking vocals at his cousin’s New Haven studio, warmly greeting fans and friends at a dive bar merch booth or rapping double-time in Japan or Europe for audiences that often don’t speak his language, but are able to see the giant heart at the core of it all.

Esh
Esh
Esh (formerly known as Esh the Monolith) is a rapper/producer from Boston, Mass. A respected member of the burgeoning art-rap community, his music is a thoughtful and positive rejection of a culture that values fame over talent, conformity over individuality, and apathy over passionate dissent.

Known for his dense and layered approach to writing and production, he was listed as one of the "15 Boston Rappers You Should Know" in XXL Magazine, which said: “He’s a witty dude with flexible vocal abilities, and he’s definitely different. His live show is probably an all-inclusive shitshow that we’d love to attend.”

Esh's performances have a truly unique "one-man band" quality rarely seen at rap shows. He incorporates elements of live instrumentation and production that range from makeshift percussion to thrift-store synths.

On August 18, 2017, Esh released his new full-length album, ‘Darwin’s Frankenstein,' on AR Classic Records, a follow up to his 2016 collaborative LP with producer The Arcitype, 'Death Doesn't Want You.'
