Producer/MC Malci toes a fine line of contrast in all forms. At points, his music is thoughtful straight forward jazzy boom-bap raps, than a song later it mutates into something experimental, futuristic and chaotic. It's somewhere between Quasimoto & Shabazz Palaces, Guru (of Gangstarr) & Death Grips.

Malci's music wears it's heart on it's sleeves-- showcasing an unorthodox and ever-evolving style unapologetically. It's strange, honest, and occasionally cryptic-- but still continues to turn heads thanks to its uniqueness and willingness to push the envelope. While his production influences are obvious -- ranging from J Dilla to Flying Lotus to Clams Casino, while his lyrics and delivery continue to shape shift to whichever soundscape he winds up at next. Subject matter for the emcee fluctuates just like his production-- its not out of pocket for him to name-drop a favorite author, reminisce about a guilt-ridden memory of a deceased friend and compare himself to an obscure jazz musician all in the same breath.

A still up-and-coming rapper, Malci is poised to continue an already rapid ascent. He has already shared bills with the likes of BadBadNotGood and Nnamdi Ogbonnya, as well as produced for fellow Chicago MC's Mykele Deville & Sol Patches.

Mikeyy Austin & The Happy Medium
Mikeyy Austin & The Happy Medium
MikeyyAustin is a 21 year-old hip-hop/soul artist and musician from Lansing, Michigan. His sound is reminiscent of the Soulaquerian era, combining hip-hop, soul, and live instrumentation. His music tells the story of discovery of ones-self, while dealing with culture, art, and community.

Mikeyy began performing at the age of 5 years-old, singing and rapping at local churches, school shows, and talent shows. At the age of 12, Mikeyy fell in love with instrumentation, picking up piano, and self-teaching guitar at the age of 14. His ability to hear and create sounds distinguished him at a early age.

Now, along with his music projects, Mikeyy is known for his memorable live performances. Backed by his band, The Happy Medium, each show is very special. "My shows aren't meant for people to come and just watch. I want the audience to become one big family by the time the show concludes." - MikeyyAustin
