M83 is one Anthony Gonzalez, hailing from Antibes France, residing in Los Angeles for the last 6 years. His sixth album, 2011’s Hurry Up Were Dreaming, placed M83 in the direct current of the mainstream, gaining acclaim as Gonzalez’s masterpiece summation of all the elements and influences of his epic space-age future pop. It would also become the record that cemented M83’s mainstream breakout, driven by the global hit single “Midnight City.” Other standout tracks like “Outro” and “Wait” from Hurry Up… also became pop-culturally ubiquitous, taking on a life of their own as musical accompaniment for numerous TV shows and Hollywood blockbuster trailers.

Over the past few years, Gonzalez has become in demand as a soundtrack composer for hire, clarifying the promise of M83’s already cinematic sweep in actual movie theaters with scores for 2013’s Tom Cruise sci-fi blockbuster Oblivion and his brother Yann’s 2014 directorial debut You and the Night. New original M83 tracks also received prominent placement in the soundtracks to the hit film series Divergent. 2016 will see a new album and more touring around the globe for M83. Stay tuned, it it sure to be an epic ride.
Big Black Delta
Big Black Delta
Jonathan Bates' solo project Big Black Delta was born from a several year hiatus from the music industry. After creating several EP's and one LP with the Los Angeles based rock band Mellowdrone, Bates decided to leave the band in order to develop his conscious and create a different style of music. He bought a laptop from friend Alessandro Cortini (Nine Inch Nails, Sonoio) and from there started creating a minimal, innovative sound that would transform into Big Black Delta. With the help of female drum duo Mahsa Zargaran and Amy Wood, Jonathan Bates takes you on a journey through space with a heavy snare and electronica sound.

They will be playing at The Satellite in Los Angeles on May 27th so do not miss out on the opportunity to travel to the cosmos with Big Black Delta.
