Los Angeles-based sister duo Jennifer and Jessie Clavin knew that things were going to be different for their band Bleached sophomore LP Welcome The Worms. Not only had they managed to charm world renowned producer and engineer, Joe Chiccarelli (Morrissey, The Strokes, Elton John) to join the sisters and their bassist Micayla Grace in the studio, but Jen and Jessie had been crawling out of their own personal dramas. Jessie was evicted from her house and scrambling, while Jen ended a torrid, unhealthy romance. While emotionally spinning, she dove head first into music. She struggled and escaped the pressures with drinking and partying, sometimes to excess, feeling like she was losing herself altogether.

If the previous decade was the age of the pop star, then we must now be in the age of producer. No one better exemplifies this than rising star Draper, who proves that producing is a true art form in its own right; with intelligent song writing and vibrant production, he is ready to take the music world by storm.

Jamie Isaac

Within the opening bars of his debut EP, 'I Will Be Cold Soon', it suddenly becomes very clear that 18-year-old singer/producer Jaime Isaac inhabits a space like no other emerging talent. While his voice may be flooring, his command of the piano arresting, and the delicate textures of his electronic production infectious, no one facet can explain the singularity of what he does.

Night Beats
