Mayta
MAYTA is a rock n' roll and latin grooves band composed by the Rimach brothers (Ivan, Renato, y Victor) along with friends from Mexico, Cuba, and Venezuela.The band is based in Dallas, TX and was awarded the "Best Latin Act" of 2013 by the Dallas Observer.
Making Movies
Making Movies
Making Movies makes music that matters: Built upon a heavy foundation of Afro-Latino rhythms, they have created a bilingual, psychedelic re-envisioning of the Latin American "son."

The band's second album, A La Deriva, ("adrift" or "swept away"), produced by Steve Berlin of Los Lobos, tells a story based on the struggles of an immigrant family that tragically falls apart in America, and the consequential impact on the following generation. Taking cues from Latin American folklore, the band's sound swings intensely, at times sounding like Compay Segundo being played by Jimi Hendrix and at other times like The Talking Heads digging deep into a dembow. When Felix Contreras at NPR described the title track 'Deriva' he stated, "...the young band Making Movies (and its producer, Steve Berlin of Los Lobos) shows us how deeply thought-out lyrics sound next to a rhythm track that somehow both propels and floats without violating the laws of physics."

Making Movies has shared the stage with the likes of Los Lobos, Tennis, Ozomatli, Aterciopelados, Neon Indian, Delta Spirit, and Mariachi El Bronx among others.
Migrant Kids
Migrant Kids was formed in 2011 in Detroit, Michigan by cousins Miguel Ojeda and John Zakoor. The two come from a large migrant family where they all grew up playing music together. Soon after the formation of Migrant Kids, John and Miguel decided it was time to leave the harsh winters of Michigan and head south to Austin, which is where they found the 3rd member of the group, Bryan OFlynn. Bryan, a then recent Austin transplant from Cincinnati, Ohio, shared that special Midwest connection with them and they started creating music together. The trio continued to progress their musical styles and musicianship, resulting in their debut album 2 years later.
Drawing heavily from the influences of David Lynch and the method acting techniques of Stanislavski, Migrant Kids create more than just individual, one-dimensional songs. Their art feels less like an album and more like a drug induced hallucinogenic experience of electronic spirits and atmospheric ghosts. Vocals are breathed, not sung. Melodies pose questions. Rhythms erupt over vast soundscapes.
Every aspect of Migrant Kids is a collaboration, from the musical concepts to the artwork and photography.
