Singer/Songwriter & Event Organizer
Drew Wood (aka Moris Code): from Billings, Montana, USA
Drew started playing music at age 8, and now plays the piano, keyboard, sings, and mixes using a laptop. His style represents the fuzion of several genres such as breakbeat, electronic, ambient, and dub. With an understanding for other’s style, Drew stated, in an interview that his music represents a “personalized musical experience. To each their own, part of the reason why I try to avoid a certain genre. Quite a few different styles are incorporated, [in my music]”. Clearly an inspired 23 year old, who’s career is on the rise and full of potential.
Moris Code’s Style has a binary feel with an electronic base. Moris Code is always cooking up new tracks. In fact, Moris Code just released a banger, called Nocturnal Soundwaves. This song (which you should listen to below,) has a nice spacious intro with an array of syths and sounds. Drew, the mastermind behind Moris Code, is mastering his craft with a touch of sensitivity a dabble of classical, and a heavy dose of electronic. The name ‘Moris Code’ suggests a binary nature with focus on development and spacing over time. Worth the time: Stop, listen and appreciate.

A young and dedicated band, who has been playing music from an young age. They have much more in store for them in the years to come. There music and style is evolving with each song expanding their musical terrain. It was great to meet these nice fellows on campus as they serenaded the passersby. There is nothing quite like meeting street musicians who’s sound blows you off course and you must stop to enjoy!

BEATZ & PEACES: Bowling Green, Kentucky
Scotty Tichenor & Aaron Green are the minds behind the sound.
Influenced by: Pretty Lights, Lotus, and Zoogma.
In their own words: “Beatz & Peaces is a fusion between dub, dance, electronic jams and break beats. Influenced by many different bands and styles we bring a very technical, new and unique sound to the table. Breaking the barriers were music has to have specific genres..”
Bits and Nibbles of samples, synths, and lyrics. With a busy array of electronic and sound, Beatz & Peaces twists audio at will to create a unique playful sound. Despite the electronic feel they are musicians, playing the Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keyboard, as well as Vocals. They also prove that a laptop is an instrument that can be mastered.
Two Song Descriptions/ Reactions: (leave your reactions and comment below!)
Northern Lights, has an acoustic guitar intro riff that sets the tone for the rest of the song. It is a great tallent to be able to combine acoustic instrumentation to the digital spectrum of sound.
Lost in Translation: With an eerie sounds, synths, loops, bells, bass, vocals is a airy blend of vibration. To me it is a cloudy idea presented with clarity. LFOs wobble the speaker’s face (and surly your own), while “_*^&^%_, _*^&^%__, Bang” brings you back to reality. With sounds that resemble 90’s Nintendo 64 game sounds (james-bond or perfect dark), it has a unique feel, flow and development.

Resolution Portland, Oregon, USA
Upon reflection, this show has been a highlight of 2012 thus far. With much more to come, who can sit still? Here is some of the music that has permitted the West Coast vibrations and will continue for yeas to come!
Horizon Events threw a massave rager in a warehouse in Portland. Actually let me rephrase that. A collective effort was put forth to create a ridiculous event with a killer light show. A spectacular display of lights, lasers, and video to the eyes with lighting by Dreamer, visuals by Light Trope, and space shaping by Renaissnce Raven, the ave was scheduled from 9:00PM to 6:00AM. 9 hours of head pounding, sternum wrenching bassy electronic music coupled with incredible visuals, i think all were sweaty and satisfied as the sun was rising.
“RESOLUTION! The show was sold out!!!!!!! 500+ heads in the building make for a special night! Big ups to RE SOUND for the KV2 sweetness, all the vendors, the AMAZING DJ TALENT, THE AMAZING SECURITY TEAM, MICHEAL BOWLES and his crew for the dopest stage setup I have ever seen, JOSH FITZ for equally impressive video design, DREAMER with the DOPEST LASER SHOW IN THE NW” -Zilch

C-Villain: Rap Superstar in Eugene
C-Villain is a talented cat who currently lives in Eugene, Oregon. Originally from Oakland, California, his new album dropped under a month ago called “Stereos, Dominoes, & a few Flows”. The album is available for free download. C-Villain spits the truth of the college lifestyle over some heavy and well thought out beats. FreioMusic has had the opportunity to see & record C-Villain live at the Granary with TribalSpectrum. After hearing the difference between studio tracks and the live set, we have come to realize that C-Villain has freestyle skills far beyond what the studio tracks illustrate. That said, the album demonstrates an attention to detail and the professionalism of a star. With female vocals on the chorus, featured artists on the verse, C-Villain orchistrates his rap in a way rainy Eugene has never seen. This music video is well done and filmed around the local community. Ducks, you aught to recognize Hilly’s Market…
Influenced by the DR. and Mac Dre, C-villain is focused and aiming for the top. Certainly a rising artist, and arguably the best rapper to come out of Eugene in 10 years.

Bay Area Hip Hop Legend San Quinn made his way up the coast all the way to Eugene,
Oregon with a crew of fine Cali rappers. With performances by Spark Diggz, Trash, A.M.G., DEF davyne, Field Music, Dubz, Chochy City, and R.O.B., the event was a rarity for the Eugene music scene. One group in particular, Starz of Da Bizzare, raged the stage harder than any group. They got the room up off of their bar stools and onto the dance floor, drinks in hand. The room came alive with their raw talent and high energy.

With fluidity they passed the mic around while pumping up the dance floor with their rowdy instrumentals. Eugene didn’t even know what hit them as the mellow audience was starstruck by the STARZ OF DA BIZZARE. FreioMusic had the privilege of meeting a few members from the group, Fly Trapper and K9. The two upstanding gentlemen had nothing but love and dirty rhymes to spread to Eugene. Although the turnout was fair, this party should have been overflowing. Much love to all the groups that performed like it was, come back soon!

“I started making music a few years back, using Ableton Live and Logic. (I use mainly Ableton nowadays.) Ma shit is mainly Electro-jammy-dubby-hip-hop(esque), with maybe a little glitch thrown in for good measure…i draw from a lot of different influences, as you will hear. I have a bachelor’s degree in music from Denison University, and am currently getting my masters degree at the University of Oregon in Intermedia Music Technology. I am based out of Eugene, OR.” – Nate Asman
With continual development Hamilton Beach crashes upon the shores of ones ears. Pleasant enough for early morning melodies. Hamilton Beach clearly focuses on the synths as they all continually pulse, shrink, and morph. The clever titles of the compositions, such as “I’ll think of something”, seem to get a little less attention. After all there are no lyrics in the songs, why should one need to place a word on an instrumental?
