Hailing from the unlikely industrial locale of Arkansas, sonic scientist James Esper toiled quietly away in his laboratory for many years carefully crafting a mixture of jackhammer EBM basslines, soaring synth-pop melodies, and punchy club rhythms. "Dying Life", a 10 track album produced by Assemblage 23's Tom Shear was unleashed on an unsuspecting world when Espermachine joined Assemblage 23 as support for their 2012 US Bruise tour. Espermachine now resides in Pittsburgh, PA and has remastered their second album "Into Bronze" 10 album in 2019.

Solemn Shapes is a North American electronic band based in Charlotte, NC whose music ranges from dark electronica to the industrial and experimental genres. The band performs a live blend of electronic music with synthesizers, samplers and drum machines to create dark distorted beats, vocal/sample effects and warped synth tones which evoke a haunting, psychedelic vibe. Solemn Shapes is currently in the studio finishing tracks for an EP to be released literally any minute.

DJs Maus and JD Tucker (of Grendel) will be spinning between bands and all night their signature synth EBM sound!
