Mammal Dap
Mammal Dap
Northampton, MA-based Mammal Dap scores the soundtrack to your life with cinematic, instrumental rock music. The four-piece, comprised of Killian Karlsson, Zack Cross, Reed Sutherland, and Colin Jalbert, interweave hypnotic beats with pumping bass, lush pads and soaring hooks. Balancing a deep love of nostalgic tones with a digital-age sensibility, their sound evokes the aesthetics of artists like Daft Punk, Tycho, Flying Lotus, and Bonobo. Energized live performances have led them to share the stage with acclaimed acts The Motet, The Nth Power, Moon Hooch, Tauk, and Marco Benevento, and the group recently performed a Northeast tribute to Beck featuring Shira Elias (of Turkuaz) on vocals.
The group's debut EP 5lbs High5, captures their earliest songwriting sessions in a swirling blend of psychedelic soul and warm electronic textures. Mammal Dap’s 2015 self-titled, full-length release marks their arrival with focused, road-tested material wrapped in wildly imaginative production that blurs the lines between electronic music and spirited group improvisation. The Deli Magazine calls it "a compelling combination of Ratatat's elasticity and Flying Lotus' claustrophobia." Mammal Dap paints a cosmic soundscape in their latest EP Deep Field, which was featured in Relix Magazine and Live for Live Music, and included in Arizona Daily Sun's 10 Best Albums of 2017. "It’s like these melodies, songs, and tiny electronic musings have always existed, but Mammal Dap was there to tap into the ether, and record them for our eternal enjoyment." (Take Magazine).

Fury
FURY was born in Chicago Illinois. As a child she attended her grandfather’s church where she gained a very strong moral foundation as well as an appreciation of soulful music. Growing up she expressed her feelings through art and grew very fond of poetry and spoken word. Her biggest inspirations growing up were Queen Latifah, Lauryn Hill, Eve, Left Eye and Talib Kweli. At the age of 13 she began to embrace the notion of becoming a rapper. Due to the loss of many loved ones she used writing to deal with the pain and loneliness we all deal with growing up. In high school she performed in several talent shows and began to gain more confidence as a rapper. At the age of 22 she became a mother and gained an even stronger drive to be a positive female role model. The music FURY writes is very intense and heart felt. She is very aware of the decline in positive messages in hip hop especially from female artists. She is inspired by music from all walks of life as long as it attempts to connect people and helps others to deal with life. She hopes to continue the legacy of the great female emcees who paved the way for her and motivate the emcees of the future.
