Ethics
Ethics
Ethics is the Nom de Plum of Elias Carranco, a Mexican electronic music producer, audiovisual artist and composer based in Tijuana, Mexico.

He spent his teenage years in Berlin/Mexico Dance music circles contributing to the electropunk scene in 2007-2012.

In 2013, after a brief hiatus living in Tokyo he emerged with a new voice and sound blending influences from Berlin Techno, Japanese Jazz/Funk, Mexican Percussions synthesized into a rich dark, organic experience.

From 2014-2016, Ethics went to into a cabin in the deep woods of Mexico to experiment with Solfeggio Frequencies, each tone is comprised of a frequency required to balance your energy and keep your body, mind and spirit in perfect harmony. He decided the tones could transcend from meditation to electronic music.

Also in 2016, Ethics Sung and Co-produced songs with Pepe Mogt of Nortec Collective for a separate project.

In 2017, he released the “Blue Cover” EP that has been taken in praise by the local binational region of Tijuana/San Diego by showing versatility in genres and live performances.
Imagery Machine
Imagery Machine
Since their formation in 2015, San Diego band Imagery Machine has set the local music scene on fire. Their distinct style of female-fronted indie rock psychedelia with undertones of reggae and progressive rock create an intoxicating, dynamic sound. Described as sounding similar to The Cranberries, Florence + The Machine and The Police, this troupe is fronted by the sultry voice of Jennie Dreams, with a band featuring accomplished musicians James Howard on lead guitar, bassist/vocalist Will Parsons, and drummer Tyler Shimkus. Imagery Machine was recently nominated for Best Indie/Alternative Band at the 2019 San Diego Music Awards, and the band has garnished two more nominations for their self-titled EP and Skydriver EP in 2017 and 2018 respectively. The band’s musical energy and passion shines through their immersive live performances, which feature kaleidoscopic lighting, frenzied stage presences, and an imaginative use of glitter and face paint. Imagery Machine has captivated a wide range of audiences; from street fairs, farmers markets and beer festivals along the coast of California to San Diego mainstay rock clubs such as The Casbah, Belly Up and Soda Bar. The band also played their first international shows in 2018 with more planned for the near future. This group of musical trailblazers is showing no sign of stopping, with big plans to release more much more content in 2019.
