About the performers:
!!! (Chk Chk Chk) is a dance-rock band from California on the verge of releasing its sixth full length LP on Warp Records. Nic Offer, the band’s famously electric frontman and lead singer, will channel his inexhaustible charisma into a DJ set that will leave no hips unmoved.
Little People is Laurent Clerc, an Anglo-Swiss producer now based in the United Kingdom. His sound is equally informed by hip-hop and downtempo, as he effortlessly combines warm synths, intricate melodies and lush string arrangements.
Sinkane is Ahmed Gallab a Sudanese-American musician known for blending elements of jazz, funk, krautrock, Afro-pop and countless other influences to create something refreshing and unexpected. After his full band’s live show touched on the sounds of Fela Kuti and Jerry Garcia alike at Dance From Above’s May show, he will make his way back to Greensboro to pull from his full quiver of influences for one of his much-praised DJ sets.
Quilla (a name inspired by the Quechua word for “moon”) is a songwriter, vocalist and keyboardist from Montreal, Canada who currently resides in Greensboro. Her debut song “Walls” is in collaboration with Sultan + Shepard and appeared on Tiesto’s acclaimed dance music compilation Club Life Miami, Vol. 2, released on Tiesto’s Musical Freedom label in the spring of 2012.
