Exploding onto the scene with rich textures and unparalleled production prowess is VCTRE. This budding beat-maker is raising the bar one track at a time. In a twist of fate, his fourth-grade drum-kit would eventually morph his love for music into an obsession with how it is made. An obsession that would eventually lead to a fresh and exciting perspective on bass music.
Inspired by a variety of genres, VCTRE blends his musical influences with precision and fluidity. His goal is simple; to be in a position where he can succeed, and help his peers succeed alongside him. With this goal in mind, Pugh prioritizes creating timeless and emotive music that captures the listener from beginning to end.
Often cathartic and progressive, the VCTRE sound has earned raving reviews from music publications like Electric Hawk, while gaining support from artists such as Eprom, Mr. Bill, and CharlestheFirst. He’s released music with labels such as VALE, The Rust, Bassrush, and Slug Wife, and he’s performed at major festivals like Okeechobee and The Untz.
VCTRE releases new music through his Bandcamp subscription every month. Through his side project, Integrate, Pugh stays busy exploring different styles of production with Black Carl!. So the question is…what’s next?
kLL sMTH is an artist who has taken his love of hip-hop and expanded it into a vast array of genres, from glitch-hop and drum and bass to dubstep and bass music. His DJing roots in turntablism have influenced his production style, with scratching and mixing vinyl being some of the first things he learned. He takes inspiration from experimentation, immersing himself in music, nature, and anything life throws his way.
Kris is a member of collaborative projects, including glitch-hop and half-time trio Ultrasloth (BioLumigen x Duffrey x kLL sMTH), ‘kLL Bill’ (kLL sMTH x Mr. Bill), a hype electronic project, and gRLL sMTH which aims to spotlight up-and-coming artists, have a good time and bring people together with food. With a constantly evolving sound and a commitment to breaking away from the predictable, kLL sMTH promises to keep his fans on their toes with every new set.
