Dorian Duvall is Onuinu. He's been crafting electro pop in Portland, OR for the past few years where the music community has been watching and waiting for this,his first full length album Mirror Gazer. Up til now there's been a release on an Ape Tapes compliation and a video for the catchy "Ice Palace" replete with kaleidoscopic, melted visuals – directed by Andrew Sloan (Tender Loving Empire).

Dorian, a multi-instrumentalist, wrote and produced the album. Jeremy Sherrer (the Gossip, Dandy Warhols, Hockey) co-produced, recorded/mixed the record and played drums.

Dorian calls the music Disco-Hop and is easy to cite influences like: Yellow Magic Orchestra, Michael Jackson, the Brainfeeder Crew and Stones Throw Records. The giant chorus of opening track Mirror Gazer, the 70's shimmer of Happy Home, and the roller rink ready Always Awkward, point to his foundation in the disco, power pop and hip hop worlds.

"I was drawn more to guitar when I was a teenager listening to Hendrix and Jazz and then transitioned into more pop music Like the Beatles, Kinks, Zombies."

"I didn't really play in very many bands, I jammed with friends, attempted to start a few bands with friends and then decided to make music on my own – I did some early recordings with an acoustic guitar and a Casio. Then I bought my first sampler and synthesizer and with those I started making loops. The early influences with that stuff was all over the place from Eno, Bowie, Madlib, J dilla, Prince, and Jan Hammer."
Color Channel
Color Channel
Performing a spectral mix of dance, rock and psychedelic pop, Color Channel's short season as a band has displayed their increasing ability to produce music dripping with love, zeal, and a less-is-more attitude. While their live sound is stylistically uninhibited, they remain dedicated to spawning in their fans the irresistible urge to dance. Color Channel continually challenges itself to pair madness and spontaneity with sonic maturity and restraint.
Child Actor
Child Actor is a collaboration between producer Max Heath and Bostonian cousin Sedgie Ogilvy. Together they concoct R & B for the digital age, with hip hop and psych elements clawing at the walls of a restless alt-pop soundscape. The sultry vocals of Ogilvy often sound as if slowly risen from the bottom of a well and out into speakers. Her vulnerable, home-recorded demos constitute the foundation for Heath's often mountainous production consisting of heaps of synths, expertly-chopped
samples, and his own complementary backing vocals. Victory, the duo's debut long player, comes on the heels of two well-received EPs (Partner and Window) released earlier in the year. Songs like "Reasons" and "If You Loved Me" get under the skin quickly with Ogilvy's alternately plaintiveand assured voice engulfed in Heath's fluid, ethereal patterns. With early
acclaim from The Guardian, The Fader, VICE, NYLON, and many more, Child Actor is seeing the first performances of their career become highly anticipated.
