Matthew Dear (Ghostly)
Matthew Dear is a shapeshifter, oscillating seamlessly between DJ, dance-music producer, and experimental pop auteur. He is a founding artist on both Ghostly International and its dancefloor offshoot, Spectral Sound. He writes, produces, and mixes all of his work and has had remixes commissioned by The XX, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Spoon, Hot Chip, The Postal Service, and Chemical Brothers. Earlier this year Dear teamed up with Ford Motor Company to create a track using noises from their new electric car model.
Kelly Moran (Warp)
Kelly Moran is a pianist and composer from New York. Her most recent record Ultraviolet was released by Warp Records in 2018. As the main producer for her five solo albums, her intricately arranged electro-acoustic compositions have been described as accomplishing "the rare feat of making the work of a single individual sound like the artistic output of a veritable creative army." As a collaborator she has worked with FKA Twigs, Lucinda Chua, Prurient, Oneohtrix Point Never, Glasser, Toby Driver, Charlie Looker, and fellow pianist and long-term John Cage collaborator Margaret Leng-Tan.
Brijean Murphy (Ghostly)
Brijean Murphy is a visual artist, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter. She works as a session & touring musician and has emerged as one of indie’s most in-demand percussionists (Poolside, ToroY Moi, U.S. Girls). In 2018, she began recording songs with multi-instrumentalist and producer Doug Stuart, who also shares a background in jazz and pop. This duo project became Brijean, releasing mini-album Walkie Talkie and recently signed with Ghostly International.

As an artist, Kenneth Whalum charts a new direction in music. With a captivating intensity, his work pushes the conventional boundaries of contemporary emerging artists. He fuses together soul, alternative, hip-hop, jazz, R&B, and blues.
