Jacksonville’s Greenhouse Lounge (GHL) is hitting Tampa (Crowbar) and South Florida (Tobacco Road & Pineapple Groove) for three dates, supporting the release of their new album, Right On Time. Merging dub basslines and pumping electronica beats with breakbeat dynamics and some subtle guitar axe-wizardry, GHL’s sound has been described as euphoric. Right On Time, exemplifies the different personas GHL has taken over the years while still focusing on their current style. Featuring a total of 7 songs including “Koto” and other GHL staples, the album release coincided perfectly with their impressive set at this year’s Purple Hatter’s Ball at the Spirit of Suwannee Music Park. While multiple genres are touched upon within the album, one theme is current throughout; high energy electronica. The album is available for free on their website and hard copies will be on sale at all of their live shows.

Greenhouse Lounge: Greenhouse Lounge (GHL) is adept at merging rumbling dub basslines with pumping electronica beats, breakbeat dynamics, bright emotional melodies met with smart and staggering sample manipulation, and some subtle guitar axe-wizardry. Their music can been described as euphoric; a hypnotic groove-based sound; tightly woven sonic soundscapes that are rich in melody and texture. Born of the new dawn of live electronica music that almost fuses jam, jazz, funk, breakbeats, as well as live dub step recently.

Sir Charles: Formerly known as Monozygotik, Charles Weinert has hit milestones many producers only dream to achieve. At the young age of 20, his sound has evolved from a dubstep monster to a far more sophisticated, bass hungry sex beast that thrives on intelligent low end manipulation and melodic over-tones that when meshed with underground and mainstream hip-hop acapellas takes on a life of its own. Playing to sold-out crowds primarily in the southeast and beyond, 2011 is looking to be a huge one for the young prodigy. Charles has shared club gigs with many big players in the electronic game right now including Bassnectar, Big Gigantic, Bonobo, Conspirator, Paper Diamond, RJD2 and more. Recently signing with Eliot Lipp and Old Tacoma Records, Charles is finding himself mentoring under one of his greatest inspirations. Charles will release an EP this Summer, in advance of his dropping his new album this Fall.

Aquaphonics: Aquaphonics is a uniquely funky electro-soul indie band from South Florida. Derived from friends and jam sessions, Aquaphonics has boasted several different members and worn different skins, yet to this day retains its original, liquid, “Aquaboogie Sound.” The band is comprised of founding members, Jessiah Weston (drums/vocals) and Alan Martinki (keys), who have been melding their music since 2000, along with dynamic guitarist/vocalist Steve Elmore. Their edgy grooves and inspired song writing as demonstrated in their hit cult classics ‘Waiting for It’ and ‘Spooky Beats,’continues evolving and has recently earned them spots supporting Perpetual Groove and The New Mastersounds and a set at Bear Creek Music & Arts Festival.

DJ Craig Heneveld: Sliding his way into the innovative electronic artists coming out of the South is producer and DJ, Craig Heneveld. Craig combines a diligent work ethic in the studio with a passion for igniting the dance floor. Highlights of his career include opening for acts such as Mark Farina, EOTO, Perpetual Groove, BoomBox, Pnuma Trio as well as performing at Underground Sound 5, Trinumeral 2010 and Aura 2010. He is a set break staple for the freshest up and coming acts in the “jam-tronica” scene such as The Malah, Ep3 and Papadosio. If there’s a national jam-tronica act coming through southern Florida, chances are Craig will also be on the bill. Craig’s digital releases can be found under New York Dance music label SYSTEM RECORDINGS which include: Then There Was Single, DEEP LIFT EP, and Dig This EP. Other remixes include: Excess (RPO on Pure Perception Records), a remix of the theme from The Taking of Pelham and a remix of Malah’s track “Yorokobu” (free download).
