Demonic Downshift is an electronic music project by George Malamidis, drawing inspiration from movie scores, ambient, industrial, Berlin School, L.A. Beat Scene and leftfield electronic styles. George grew up in Greece before moving to London, where he's been for most of his adult life. He finds describing himself or having his photo taken profoundly unpleasant, perhaps surprisingly, considering how good he is at both these activities. He's also one third of experimental rock group 2 by bukowski.

Philadelphia-based producer and bassist Carter Fox continues to expand and combine cosmological, musical, and philosophical knowledge and intrigue in his new work Epoch (out summer 2018 via Biblioteka Records) led by the first single, 'Welcome to the Universe.’ Following up his mindful EP Soulful Traveler (2016, Climax Entertainment) and the auditory-epic-poem Existential (2014, Mad Dragon Music Group), Fox evokes a chill, ambient exploration of soundscape as the listener goes on a "a journey through the cosmos" (Carl Sagan), and uses his signature groove and production to keep the listener in an atmosphere of creativity and growth.
In addition to his solo explorations, he is currently a member of the ‘alternative-Motown’ outfit JUTAUN, touring bassist with R&B legend Freddie Jackson, and an avid music producer, composer, and studio musician. He is endorsed by Aguilar Amplification and Moody Leather Guitar Straps.

Both performers have deep roots in the bay area of California, with Shak having performed countless shows as a jam guitarist and Mo showing up as a staple in the underground dance community as a DJ and event organizer for well over a decade. The Wonderlust is the product of two passionately creative spirits who refuse to stay between the lines. Highly textured, beat-driven downtempo meets improvisational electric guitar for an unlikely and wholly irresistible marriage of styles. The hybrid nature of the sound makes it difficult to categorize but mesmerizing to experience.
3Hands4Milo is the project of Alex Parker. Hailing from Niagara, the project uses the landscape and history of the region, throwing into the spotlight the idea of our past and present. Utilizing a variety of hardware synthesizers, samplers, drum machines, and sequences, combined with a much more modern production style, the project aims to bring people a different retro style of music with a decidedly 2018 touch. Drawing influence from nature, history, and personal timelines, in addition to 80s music, goth, synthpop, and even shoegaze, the project hopes to be a continually evolving apparition, bringing in other artists and musicians for a likeminded hive of talent.
While the music is completely electronic, the influence of natural sounds and instruments shines through within the project while being recreated using classic analogue and early digital synthesizers.
The overall hope is that 3Hands4Milo can reach people that enjoy music they can relate to and that tells a story in an evocative, electronic setting.
Corleone & Dream are a duo made up of trans violinist Beau Dream and DJ and producer Mo Corleone of The Wonderlust.

HF5 hopes to return the favour by writing songs that reflect the ever-changing landscape of music from both Canada and the world.
