DELOFI, AKA Chris Horne, creates tape-driven compositions. This Cleveland-based producer and experimental beatmaker creates instrumentals that are serene, chilled and enhanced by the pops and snaps of analog grain. He uses samplings of spoken
word and field recordings layered over intense, looping sounds to provoke an emotional response. Alternately spiritual, exploratory and profound, he consistently releases fascinating experimental music. 

In 2012, Horne and Uplift/General Dirt started DIRTY TAPES NYC. This growing collective has been curating and documenting artists and live showcases via analog cassette tapes, VHS video, zines, and other raw media.

Forest Management is the solo project of John Daniel, an American musician originally from Cleveland, Ohio. He currently lives and works in Chicago. Daniel produces fine ambient/noise/drone music which has been described as powerful, haunting and poignant. He has released over 40 works in the last 7 years. His latest work, Biqui, was released in March on No Rent Records. He describes the project as a new experiment conceived in the Pacific Northwest and completed in Chicago dedicated to Le Chat Noir.
