Big Data is a paranoid electronic music project from the Internet, formed out of a general distrust for technology and The Cloud (despite a growing dependence on them). Helmed by producer, Alan Wilkis, Big Data aims to explore the relationship between man and machine, and how the internet has reshaped the human experience.
Joywave is an eclectic group specializing in alternative pop hailing from Rochester, NY. After the success of 2013's 88888 mixtape, they established their Hollywood Records imprint Cultco Music, through which they released their debut EP How Do You Feel? on March 11. With a catalog that deftly jumps between genre, Joywave’s How Do You Feel? EP demonstrates the band’s pointed talent for blending influences. The Joywave sound is grounded in classic songwriting, often injected with house music's energy, disco's playfulness and an overarching hip-hop spirit. Where any other band might lose its identity in the quest to experiment with so many different sounds, Joywave’s all-embracing approach and ineffable knack for making music that feels good puts their distinct personality front and center.
