10th Letter
Jeremi Johnson, also known as 10th Letter is an experimental, multi genre musician who resides in Atlanta, Georgia. Over the years Jeremi has released a number of albums as 10th Letter and has continued to push his live experience forward with each performance. 10th Letter has long been contributing to the now global beat culture; as well as pushing other avenues of sound and art along his journey.
Jock Gang
Jock Gang plays harsh art rock, forming abstract sonic paintings with a broad palette of sound. Songs follow intuitive structures, noise grafted onto noise, with subtle pop melodies rising from the din. Drums and bass form a steady haunting pulse. Guitars meander across the soundscape. Vocals soar overhead or stay buried in the haze. Drawing from a diverse array of influences, like late 2000s Canadian art rockers Women and the early 20th century painter Arshile Gorky, the music is “alternately nervous and chill, subdued and in-your-face, self-consciously artsy and intelligently straightforward” (Flagpole).


Jared Collins and Kimberly Collins started the group in Athens, Georgia, wanting to move in a heavier direction than that taken by their previous project, k i d s. After moving to Atlanta in 2015, Jared and Kimberly began playing with Jonathan Merenivitch and Adrian Benedykt Świtoń, each of whom brought a distinct sensibility as songwriters in their own right for local band Shepherds. Garrett Burke of Art Contest and Tug signed on soon after.


Danger Mouse selected the band's track “Tell Me About It,” featured on an EP released in early 2016, for his 30th Century Records Compilation Volume 1. In August, a performance at Atlanta’s Mammal Gallery got the attention of Bradford Cox and led to the band joining Deerhunter on a tour of the United States. Live, Jock Gang embraces a flexible aesthetic. Song structures shift, instrumental parts are fluid. Each show brings out a new aspect of the band’s sound.
Dot.s
Dot.s is an endeavor to take "dance music" far from where it comfortably rests in its current, popular state. We venture to challenge the status of an art form that began as something primal and turned into something calculated and boring and kinda depressing. Drums, bass, and synthesizers rest in the center of our five-piece arrangement, followed by whatever auxiliary instrumentation feels cozy on top of that. We hope to give you something that is as fun and refreshing as our collective ideology: that sounds can prove-ably change the way people act, and should, thus, be made with obsessive care.

"There might not be a name or genre for what Dot.s are doing with their music, but Jellyfiss seems to do the same thing a Talking Heads album would do: advance dance music to a place that feels more organic, more exciting, and, ultimately, more lasting than most music from the genre. Dot.s create music with a clear personality, which is something not only lacking in dance music, but most music in general." -Sean Zearfoss, Immersive Atlanta

"Press play on "Down Goes the Elephant," the latest, 12-minute opus from electronic pop outfit Dot.s, and a virtual universe unfolds, complete with fugue-like changing parts, and a roller coaster ride of emotional states. The song is a semi-operatic departure that finds the group reaching new highs in both composition and collaborative synergy. The Atlanta Philharmonic warms up the intro, setting the mood and establishing a palette for a colorful and propulsive departure for Dot.s. While there are similarities to the music heard throughout previous efforts Jellyfiss and We Swim, "DGTE" comes together on a grand scale in terms of both concept, arrangements, lyrics, and even its artwork." -Chad Radford, Creative Loafing

"Recorded with Damon Moon at Standard Electric Recorders Co., 'Rose Lens' unfurls in steady waves, each atmospheric pulse and burbling groove striding confidently into the next. Yet, despite its swaggering self-assurance, the track finds the band working in a darker mood than in the past, confronted by the dread of isolation, fallible memories, and the silent voices that keep us awake at night. Still, the vibe here is more meditative than dreary, more coming to terms than a statement of disillusion. Throughout it all, the methodical beat and throbbing ambience thrust inexorably forward, shrouding any thoughts of gloom in a shimmering haze of brooding electropop. Life is still full of wonder, after all, even if it isn’t always pretty." -Guillermo Castro, Immersive Atlanta
