Tarsius is a Manila-based band composed of Diego Mapa on laptop and Jay Gapasin on drums. Separately, they are involved in two of the most exciting bands in the Philippines. Mapa fronts riot-inducing electro-rock outfit Pedicab, while Gapasin plays drums for spoken-word afro-soul-jazz band Radioactive Sago Project. Together they combine electronic music and live instrumentation to produce psychedelic-electronic dance tracks influenced by hip hop, big beat, house, jungle, and indie/alternative dance. Their debut record, ‘Primate’, is now out on vinyl and digital download.
Jorge Juan B. Wieneke V (aka Similar Objects) is an experimental beatmaker from the Philippines known for producing cosmic electronic tracks that traverse genres such as ambient, avant-garde, lo-fi, minimal, glitch, hip-hop, IDM and downtempo. As Similar Objects, he has released more than 10 albums as he continues to explore organized vibrations and shared frequencies in his search for collective consciousness, a world of similar objects within similar objects.
Multi-instrumentalist Joon Guillen is a Filipino electronic artist based in Hong Kong with a Monome controller for a bandmate. Constantly in need of a memory upgrade, his alter-ego Modulogeek thinks of music as chunks of easily-digestible bits that are combined, processed, algorithmized and rearranged until finally something comes out. He is currently working on a full-length album for humans and robots alike.

Jumping from one genre to another in perpetual pursuit of the perfect beat, we present you live transmissions from the future of sound!
