Voices of Thunder — An evening of magic electronica, rockin' tunes, and masculine vocal mastery. Featuring DISSØLV, Reverend Stephan Sams (of Redlight District), Destiny Sun, and Scottorious.
DISSØLV was founded upon the idea that genres were meant to be transcended and minds were meant to be dissølved. Our listeners ride through waves of hypnotic sounds; from global bass with ethno rhythms to tribal trap with gypsy violin. With early origins as a live electronic band opening for Shpongle and Infected Mushroom, DISSØLV has become a favorite at many transformational gatherings on the West Coast festival circuit. Featuring the electronic and musical artistry of brothers Valentin Santana and Andre Reinero and ...dancing artistry of Jasmine Semjase, the authentic vibrations of DISSØLV will stimulate, elevate and DISSØLV your mind!
Reverend Stephan Sams is a well-known local favorite. Many are familiar with his soaring vocal artistry as lead vocalist for the acclaimed band, Redlight District. His influences are clear; steeped in blues, retreating back into the gutters of rock and roll, where tatters of flamenco and folk create an ominous abyss that explodes with something both traditional and modern. With a loop station and menagerie of toys — including harmonica, bottleneck-slide, and tambourine — The Reverend is a quintessential one-man band.
Destiny Sun is a collaborative music project based on the Central Coast. With vocalist Greg Souliotis as Chief Visionary Officer, Destiny Sun's sound is a powerful mix of energetic electronica blended with traditional song structures. At times, Destiny Sun's deep lyrics and powerful masculine sound have been compared to a 21st century electronic version of David Bowie, Depeche Mode, and The Doors.
