Here you will learn everything you need to know about Marc Rebillet, aka Marc "Loop Daddy" Rebillet, aka Marc “I paid you to be a DJ for my wedding, not to waste the atmosphere with your shits” Rebillet, an artist, actor, musician, composer, humorist, philosopher and phone psychotherapist who explores the realms of the looping art through such mainstream themes as rape, buttholes, or herpes.

Marc was spiritually born around 2007 in an iPhone waiting line. Hearing a voice in the bathroom calling him on a mission, he went there and found fortune. He then launched his big plan for ruling the world, based on pooping on everything. He failed, but his aspirations remain intact.

Taking advantage of the huge popularity he immediately reached on YouTube (14 subscribers in less than a day), he bought a BOSS RC-505 loop station. To cook rice? No, asshole, to make loops. Some may ask: "Why looping?" and Marc would probably answer: "I don't know man, I just do what I like". But don't be fooled, we all know the reason is that he's just a lazy dumbass.

Despite what you might expect, he learned to play the piano at 5. Immediately noticed by his teachers, he became the boy we all know as the "Mozart of Dallas" in no time, composing his best masterpieces before reaching age 12. He then fell sick, ravaged by an inexplicable melancholy.

Desperate, his parents tried everything to cure him. From therapists to beating the shit out of him, including his uncle Jimmy trying to help with "special bedroom sessions", nothing seemed to lead to recovery. He got worse.

Let's go back to the BOSS RC-505 loop station, much better than the 202, even the 101, if it ever existed.

Did you know that the BOSS RC-505 loop station can be operated with the hands, and is absolutely perfect for beatboxers, vocalists, club performers, and normal people who liked to hear the word “butthole” 13452 times, without actually having to pronounce the whole of it?

Not to mention it has not 1, not 2, not 3, not 4, but 5 stereo phrase tracks, with dedicated controls (so you don't have to bet which one will work each time), and independent volume faders (so you can lower your voice with a touch, instead of running far away from the microphone, as our ancestors used to do). It includes a wide range of Input FX and Track FX, who gives a fuck about the meaning of this, but you'll be happy to know it's useful for processing loops. It contains a DJ (I'm imagining a real guy delivered with the BOSS RC-505, what a comic thought) and sampler-style effects, like the priceless robot voice, or the famous and traditionally misogynist "woman voice".

You can register no less than 99 phrases. As the famous actor once said: "Wow". But wait, could you guess that these 99 phrases each contain 5 phrase tracks, custom effects and even, even, ladies and gentlemen, you won't believe it: and even MORE? What does more mean, you might ask? Copywriters are not well-paid for product descriptions, so fuck you.

Blaine & His Keyboard
Blaine Bothee was asked by a friend in April 2015 to play open up for a house show, mostly as a way to fill the bill up. From that moment, Blaine took his keyboard around the area, playing house shows and just wanting to people to have a good time, watching the budding relationship between man and musical machine.
James Gardin
James Gardin
James Gardin (formerly known as P.H.I.L.T.H.Y.) has used his music to fuel dance floors, radiowaves, and varied social causes. But before opening for national acts (The Pack, Grieves, Cool Kids), teaching music to children in South Africa and using his lyrics to champion cultural unity and HIV/AIDS awareness, James Gardin had to learn to create for himself.

Gardin was born in Germany to two parents in the Army before moving to Arizona at four years old, and settling into Lansing, Mich. at ten years old. He got involved with music early through church choir, guitar lessons from a mentor, and his first raps as part of an anti-drug song competition. After failing a fifth grade test to play violin at school, he took matters into his own hands and dug into books to learn how to play sheet music. “I didn’t understand music in their systematic way, but today, I don’t approach music with rules set to it anyway,” he remembers. “I’m glad I learned it for myself.”

Gardin’s interest in hip-hop rekindled after seeing Eminem’s film “8 Mile,” and he joined a group with two other emcees. He invested in a home studio and took audio production classes. Inspired by the success of Kanye West’s The College Dropout, he decided to be himself more in his music by changed speaking about his faith more and cutting profanity. After his first solo mixtape entitled Young Black Hope, he released his debut Save Us All in August 2008. Fans were impressed by the authenticity, and he became a go-to opener when national acts like The Pack, Cool Kids and Grieves would perform in town. His solo success reached its apex the next year with Love Songs For Losers & Ballads For Ballers, an EP with Los Angeles producer Jansport J that garnered over 5,000 downloads and was featured on various blogs, including 2DopeBoyz. He also began to donate performances and workshops to initiatives such as Michigan State University multicultural organization MRULE, youth art programs, and more.

Shortly after Love Songs’ release, Gardin went to South Africa for three months, where he volunteered and spearheaded a music/arts program at a center for children affected by HIV/AIDS. When he returned to the States, he teamed up with fellow BLAT! Pack member The Amature for “Whatupdoe From BLAT!,” an EP that featured the two rhyming over instrumentals from a recent Blue Scholars EP (complete with a blessing and vocal drop from Blue Scholars themselves). In 2011, Gardin headlined his own successful City Limits tour, maintained a weekly leak series and fan appreciation project entitled “Coolest Dude In Sunday School,” and performed on several dates of Rhymesayers artist Grieves’ Together/Apart tour. In 2012, he is heating the blogosphere with his EP “A Little Light For You,” and with his album “The Living Daylights” coming soon, Gardinis just getting started.
