Kaifeng-born Yu Su is a composer, DJ, and sound artist. Tapping into an extensive repertoire of “forth world” ambience and left-field dance music, Yu Su’s emotion-packed compositional punches are best described as organically groovy jazz-bient expeditions between coasts. A proficient instrumentalist who conjures up moments of natural and synthetic beauty, her delicate, dub-inflected signature balances a variety of luminous and wistful downtempo textures. She is responsible for productions on DC’s People’s Potential Unlimited (2017), The Hague-based Wichelroede (2017), NYC’s RVNG Intl. & Arcane (2018), and Amsterdam based Second Circle/Music From Memory (2019). As a DJ, she holds a highly unique voice, crafting evocative musical narratives which touch on a wide-range of influences and personal introspections.
Born and raised in New York to parents of Ecuadorian and Argentine heritage, Brian Piñeyro released music under several different monikers before moving forward with the DJ Python project. He recorded an extremely limited single with Circuit des Yeux in 2014, then issued a lo-fi house 12" as DJ Wey in 2015. The first DJ Python EP, ¡Estéreo Bomba! Vol. 1, came out on Anthony Naples' Proibito imprint in 2016. Additional EPs as DJ Wey, Luis, and Deejay Xanax followed throughout the rest of the year, blending deep house, breaks, and electro. His first full-length as DJ Python, Dulce Compañia, was the debut release from Naples' Incienso label in 2017. An immediate success, this opened the doors for the Python project to provide a more club-tooled EP, Derretirse, which was released on Dutch label Dekmantel in 2019. DJ Python is based in Ridgewood, Queens where he is currently a resident of Nowadays.
James Bangura is the alias of Timothy Smith-Bangura, based in Washington D.C. A former military man and marching band member, his musical style—which sits in a fertile space among house, techno, and jungle—is a distillation of his varied musical influences, from the drum & bass that soundtracked his adolescence in Alabama, where he was raised by his grandparents, to the rich house of New York, introduced to him by his mother, a radio DJ and a key figure in the city’s ‘80s club scene. Together with Amal and NativeSun, they are known as Black Rave Culture.
