Event Recap: TuneCore Live at Bardot 7/29

Last week we celebrated our seventh TuneCore Live event at Bardot in Hollywood. The drinks were flowing, the music was eclectic and as always, good times were had. Big ups to Swisher Sweets, CeleBuzz, and Mirrored Media for helping us keep this monthly party happening and making sure we look good doing it!

But let’s be real: it was all about the artists onstage. Pumping the crowd up and getting us started right was Madyx, who dazzled all in attendance with her punchy hooks and energetic performance. Bringing the electronic heat to the stage next was duo Air Bag One, whose mixture of live percussion and layered synths had everyone nodding along. Wrapping up the evening was the alternative duo ANIMA!, who mesmerized us with their psychedelic tunes and light-fixture-turned-instrument set-up. All of this was supported by DJs William Lifestyle and Biggie Smiles who spun a solid mix of jams in-between sets.

Catch the round-up video below, featuring interviews with artists and performance snippets. We’ve also got the photo gallery up to browse through, so if you were in attendance, maybe we snapped you! If you want in on the action next month and live in the LA-area, hit up our TuneCore Live Facebook page to stay up to speed with our events.

Artist Breakdown: TuneCore Live at Bardot July 29

We’re getting used to hitting you with event previews and artists breakdowns for TuneCore Live, and we’re not mad about it. Entering its 8th round, we’ll be back with Swisher Sweets, Mirrored Media and CeleBuzz to present another awesome roster of TuneCore Artists and a night of dancing, networking and fun.

On Wednesday, July 29th, if you’re in the LA-area, come hang out and enjoy some great free music from Madyx, Air Bag One, and ANIMA! – plus DJ William Lifestyle providing the jams in between sets. Not familiar with some of those artists? Read more after the jump and sample some tunes – if you dig it, doors are at 8PM, admittance is free and it’s 21+. Be sure to get there early, as we always advise, because it’s likely to pack in quick!

Madyx

Madyx copy

22-year old Michelle Blanchard, aka Madyx, originally moved to LA to pursue her efforts as a member of rock band Life Down Here at age 16. While they achieved some success and a considerable fan base, Madyx was born of Michelle’s evolving tastes. Described as “a mix of P!nk and Katy Perry”, she’s building a name for herself as a pop/alternative artist in the LA-area and beyond. Peep her debut single, “Some Kisses” (recorded by Grammy-nominated producer Brian Howes) below:

“When I think of myself as an independent artist, the sky’s the limit. There’s a certain kind of freedom you get as a writer to create the music that you love and want to share with the world; not to mention the ability to release it anyway you choose. For me, TuneCore plays a huge part in helping me distribute my music to all the key download and streaming sites around the world.”

Air Bag One

air bag one

It’s always awesome when you find out the folks responsible behind ‘all that sound’ is in fact just a  duo. Hailing from Cameroon, Air Bag One aren’t afraid to join their lush and soulful indie-rock/electro sound with visual components – they embraced their love of art by collaborating with renowned music photographer Janette Beckman and LA-based artist Blake Little. Experimenting with “a wide pop spectrum rubbed with paranoia”, Air Bag One has shared the stage with HAIM, Imagine Dragons, and The Maccabees. Check out their latest single “Killing Stars” below:

“Being independent is being free in your artistic choices. You don’t need anyone for being who you are. We have always done everything ourselves from the beginning, controlling either the music, the videos, the photos, and even ironing our clothes before the shows. It’s also taking risks and make mistakes. But then, you learn for the future.

TuneCore has helped us spreading our music on the internet in an independent way. They allow our fans to listen to our music mostly everywhere they can and that’s so contemporary! In few clicks, one can listen to our tracks while cooking, or under their shower, or in the street.”

ANIMA!

Copy of ANIMA!

ANIMA! is a duo that completely nails the marriage of electronic music and folk lyrics. Consisting of violinist/producer Vicente Espi and singer/songwriter Arielle Vakni, ANIMA! hit #1 on the iTunes New Artist Chart on the release day of their EP Be Here Now. iTunes wasn’t the only platform that noticed their potential – ANIMA! has been garnering positive press reviews on all corners of the web and are surely an act to watch (and catch live!) in 2015. Enjoy their breakout single “Breathe” below.

“Being an independent artist allows us to be the purest form of what are. Tunecore is the soil, you are the seed and your listeners the water.”
