Hotel Garuda caps off our Labor Day Weekend festivities on Sunday, September 4th with support from Julia Lewis.
Hotel Garuda, composed of DJ/producer duo Manila Killa & Candleweather, have epitomized the DIY culture of modern dance music. Scaling the online tastemaker world with an array of remixes and remakes, their versatile sound has continued to beckon attention far beyond the music forums, garnering them more than 25 million streams on SoundCloud alone. The 4 official remixes & consecutive #1’s on the Hype Machine charts have also seen Hotel Garuda accompanied by critical acclaim from Billboard, Harper’s Bazaar, and Complex. 2016 marked the release of their debut original single “Smoke Signals” on PRMD Music.
Julia Lewis is a San Francisco-based music producer and artist named Benjamin Falik. Experiencing the world through his ears, Benjamin grew up studying Jazz, and learned to express himself playing piano, bass, guitar, and saxophone. In addition to jazz, he fell in love with funk, gospel, RnB, hip hop, and some forms of dance music. Having a passion for music, but not one particular instrument, he channeled his desires by making arrangements and writing full songs. He was enthralled with the sonic possibilities of electronic music, and since has become a music producer and artist. Like many young producers, he started working with Fruity Loops, transitioned to Reason and Pro-tools, and finally landed on Ableton with Max4Live. Using an array of analog and digital synthesizers, as well as drum machines, worldly samples, and live-recorded instruments, he makes emotive, danceable music that continues to evolve with time.
