About the Artists
Aaron Valentine and Mike Smith, the duo that are Cassette Drift, are heavily influenced by darkwave and shoegaze pioneers like the Cocteau Twins, Drab Majesty and Slowdive in particular. Expect echoey guitar, hollowed, haunted vocals, vibrating, bright and high, repeating layers of synths to add texture and feeling. In our four years in existence, Cassette Drift has released two self-produced albums and five singles. We are very active in building the electronic music scene in Utah...across all genres. We are primary members of the SLC Synth Alliance, a local collective of electronic music artists. We have hosted, organized, and played in several shows showcasing local talent at Quarters DLC, The International, and at local Synth Open Mic Nights.
Number One Babe Team
Indie-rock band, Number One Babe Team, was officially formed at the beginning of 2022. The band recently released their debut album, See You Later, in May 2023. Number One Babe Team draws inspiration from indie-rock projects like Soccer Mommy and Snail Mail. Their dynamic live performances integrate jazz inspired ballads, retro electronic elements, and psychedelic soundscapes.
Zivio has been playing exciting folk music from Eastern Europe for over 30 years. We play music from Bulgaria, North Macedonia, Slovenia, Serbia, Bosnia and many other Eastern European countries.
