There seems to be an aura in the air when the five members of The Main Squeeze enter a room. A multicultural five-piece from Los Angeles, CA, The Squeeze have built a cult following in the States on the road – putting rubber to pavement and playing over 1,000 shows together over the past eight years. For a group of men with completely different backgrounds, tastes, religions, and opinions, there’s already a spirit shared amongst them when The Squeeze sit down to play together.
From diehards who have seen over 30 performances to celebrities like Wayne Brady and Cedric The Entertainer, the list of superfans goes on and on. From touring the country with jam band titans like The String Cheese Incident and Umphrey’s McGee, to producing projects with artists and bands of all genres, The Main Squeeze has shown no signs of ever letting themselves be boxed in.
A specialist in augmenting musical possibility, Derek VanScoten is the producer, guitarist and Emmy-winning musician behind Cloudchord. His remarkable technical skills on the guitar give a refreshing take on atmospheric dance music, solidifying Cloudchord’s place in the world of psychedelic chillhop beats.
His recent works, Moon Fortune and Attunement, transport you to a New York City rooftop, where grooves and sunshine wrap around you in the midst of a hazy summer. In his latest LP, Reverence, Cloudchord brings acoustic beats to the forefront – a departure from his usual but a cohesive body of work in the making nonetheless. Fans can expect a continued exploration of Cloudchord’s signature guitar riffs and uplifting sounds in years to come.
