Turquoise Jeep
Turquoise Jeep
Turquoise Jeep Records is an independent record label founded by Flynt Flossy and Whatchyamcallit. It is best known for its YouTube videos including "Lemme Smang It" (by Yung Humma featuring Flynt Flossy) and "Did I Mention I Like to Dance." Currently, the label has one album titled, "Keep the Jeep Riding" and four singles and is working on a clothing line and instructional dance DVD called "Flow with the Floss."

Flynt Flossy and Whatchyamacallit founded Turquoise Jeep Records and released the label's first song "Stretchy Pants" as a YouTube video on March 15, 2009. The label continued to make music videos and release them to YouTube, signing new artists and got widespread attention when, in 2010, "Lemme Smang It" received over 10 million views on YouTube. Their first album "Keep the Jeep Riding" was released December 15, 2010. Turqouise Jeep toured repeatedly throughout 2011 - 2013, and continued to release new material. Flynt Flossy and Yung Humma also appeared on the track "Fuck Your Blog" by Childish Gambino. In 2013, the group released a freestyle collaboration with Humma, Flossy, and Whatchyamacallit.
Kosha Dillz
Kosha Dillz
Kosha Dillz is the new kid on the scene with a long history. After touring as a guest with Matisyahu for 8 years, he continued to rise to the ranks winning hot 97 rap battles, getting his own playable character in NBA 2k11/2k13 and even recording with hip hop mastermind the Rza. To top it all off, he hit the road with Snoop Dogg in Europe and licensed his song "cellular phone" to #1 rated Superbowl commercial by USA Today.

His latest album, "Awkward in a Good Way" features his broad span of taste from underground hip hop vet Murs to legendary rap queen Gangsta Boo of 3 6 Mafia. Tying his interesting collabos into his Jewish heritage and rhymes in Hebrew Spanish and English, you will be sure to engage in a live show that is different from all others. With various song topics covering the dark background of jails, addiction and depression, Kosha has managed to persevere through it all in a form that is much different from the usual. It's no wonder Matisyahu hand picked him out of the pack to open for this years Festival of Lights.

W. C. Lindsay
W. C. Lindsay is a duality. Chill/Rage. Hip-Hop/Punk. Electronic/Acoustic. Progressive/Reminiscent. Two very different halves to make up a unique whole. Understand the dichotomy- embrace it, and then we can begin.

W. C. Lindsay first heard electronic music during the summer of 2002. He was 11, and he got a hold of a copy of an English Grime record. He tried to relate his love of it to his friends, but they were wrapped up in the world of pop punk and mosh pits. Herein begins the dichotomy that developed into the W. C. Lindsay as he exists today- an indie electro-pop artist who grew up listening to electronic and hip-hop music, but was only ever exposed to the live aesthetic of punk.

Upon relocating from Columbus, Ohio to Philadelphia in 2010, W. C. Lindsay found himself engulfed in the dub-step movement, and shocked by the fact that this energetic and aggressive genre was exclusively being performed by people behind tables. There was a disconnect for him- the electronic music he loved was still there, but the live aesthetic was new.

Raised on frontmen that were down in the crowd, screaming their hearts out, Lindsay vowed that no matter the style of music he was to create, he was to put on a show much the same. "If someone cares enough to come see me, they're going to get everything," says Lindsay.

The parameters were set forth, and so the music grew. Lindsay's addition of live drums and bass to his performance pushed the punk live agenda, while his live sampling and lap steel guitar bring a hands-on aesthetic to the electronic sound. The W. C. Lindsay band has floored audiences in cities all over the country and brought it's unique brand of electro-pop to audiences big and small, with major artists such as B.o.B., Major Lazer, J. Boog, and Twenty One Pilots amongst others.

See W. C. Lindsay live and you will become privy to a dichotomy that will leave sweat on your brow and melodies in your head. Dance and scream, mosh and sing. Join the movement.
