E-turn
E-turn
Bio
E-Turn’s diverse background in cultural music stems from a lifelong journey through Persian vocals, tribal drumming, Iranian poetry, and lyrical Jazz. With family members well versed in these arts as well as instrumentation, E-Turn was raised to bring a unique, well rounded, and worldly sound to the Hip-Hop culture. Greatly influenced by icons like Nas, Lauryn Hill, and A Tribe Called Quest, E-Turn’s sound echoes the essence of true Hip-Hop & masterfully bridges the gap between staccato rap and soulful vocals.

E-Turn is now in full bloom after releasing two full-length albums, “Dark Trust” (2013) & “ESP” (2015). Continuing to progress in creative projects and partnerships, E-Turn is in the forefront of Orlando’s female Hip-Hop artistry with Second Subject Recordings, (led by Solillaquists of Sound front man, Swamburger).

E-Turn has collaborated in the past with groups such as Solillaquists of Sound, Beautiful Chorus (a group of 12 women who harmonize to the frequency of positive vibrations for intentional world healing), & DJ SPS (a former member of the classic Orlando Hip-Hop group “Andromeda”, and a USA DMC Supremacy battle champion). She has toured with musical acts such as Blueprint (Rhymesayers), Dessa (Doomtree), Grayskul (Rhymesayers), The Chicharones (Oldominion), and has also performed at festivals such as: A3C, Van’s Warped Tour, SXSW, and The Florida Music Festival.
Onry Ozzborn
Onry Ozzborn
For over a decade, Seattle based emcee Michael S. Martinez aka Onry Ozzborn of the group Grayskul (Rhymesayers Ent) has been known for a distinctive (brooding and futuristic) style of hip-hop. A founding member of the Pacific Northwest's Oldominion crew.
Ozzborn is excited to release "duofilm," a 13-minute visual album to accompany his latest album release. Directed by Oregon producers Soundlapse, the film features appearances by Aesop Rock, Latrell James, Nathan Quiroga of Iska Dhaaf, P.O.S (Doomtree) and Kimya Dawson, among others.

The film, which is a tour de force for Ozzborn, has premiered on FMtv/FuseTV. "The idea behind this was to create a visual to the whole album, not just a track," explains Ozzborn. And I got almost every guest on the album to be part of the film."

Onry Ozzborn's LP, Duo, on Fake Four Inc. has been lauded as one of the very best albums of 2016.
iCON the Mic King
iCON the Mic King
iCON the Mic King is not a movement. No one man is. Instead, he is the catalyst for a crusade much bigger than himself. A Renaissance is approaching. It's a Renaissance linked to a culture that spans over a quarter century's time. A generational art form, that rose to prominence in a well-documented creative surge in the late 80's. A culture that achieved economic importance in the trend-minded upswing of hip hop's popularity in the mid to late 90's. A culture that turned inward as it subsequently collapsed upon itself, growing too big to support the rapidly swelling ecosystem. In a staggered genre that has arguably seen it's glory days come and go, there has risen an enigmatic figure that will lead us into yet another age of artistic prosperity. Allow me to show you the many sides of the lyrical Rubik's Cube that is iCON the Mic King.

Room Full of Strangers
Room Full of Strangers
Room Full of Strangers began in late 2009 and it was in less than a years time of performing and touring that the band was discovered by legendary producer Mark Kramer; whose credits include, Monotonix, Daniel Johnston, Butthole Surfers and many others. Musically Room Full of Strangers is a 'genre bending' unique blend of garage, proto/post punk and psychedelic rock, written with a pop sensibility. The RFOS live performance has been praised by fans and press alike as being a highly energetic, entertaining 'show'; hence the bands catch phrase "You don't know, till you go"and on one occasion the band was described as a Freudian rock experience. It is with the bands eclectic musical blend, live presence and fun rock n roll revelry vibe, that the band engages it's onlookers. And this is coupled with just enough sardonic dark comedy and creepiness to keep you guessing. In conclusion, the Room Full of Strangers experience is known for a 'peak and valley' journey, that intersects where the Monkees meet the MC5.
Pathos, Pathos
Pathos, Pathos
It’s in circuses and festivals where every view that greets the eye is spectacular and alluring. Abnormality is celebrated and human dilemma, outside the fair gates, becomes an afterthought. Beneath these carnival lights, Pathos, Pathos is the search for euphoria along a path obscured by obsession, longing, and doubt.
Gary Lazer Eyes
Gary Lazer Eyes
Gary Lazer Eyes is a rock & roll band from Melbourne, FL currently based out of Orlando. GLE derive their unique style of rock from root genres such as blues and reggae, but being born at the peak of the Seattle Sound must have scarred them for life because the grunge influence is undeniable. The band began playing small dive bars and restaurants in their beachside hometown. Now you can catch them at one of their regular gigs in Orlando or on tour.
