Chris Conde (they/them) has had a busy 12 months to say the least. On March 4 of 2022,
French record label Atypeek (Monster Magnet, Moodie Black) released Conde’s 2015 debut EP
Twisted Kite Strings to streaming platforms for the first time. Featuring production from Angel
Marcloid (Fire-Toolz) the EP was written between 2010 and 2014 and documents the rapper’s
journey out of alcoholism and drug addiction into sobriety.

Writing and recording an entire album at the tail-end of 2020, Conde dropped the “revelatory” (Austin
Monthly) album Engulfed In The Marvelous Decay (Fake Four Inc.) the following Spring, which
landed at #12 on Bandcamp, grabbed a 9/10 star review (Sun Burns Out, France) and was
declared one of the best albums of 2021 (Ghettoblaster). That summer, after touring with labelmates
Ceschi Ramos and Dark Time Sunshine (Onry Ozzborn), the rapper teamed up with
Grammy-nominated Corpus Christi electro-cumbia king El Dusty to release “Summertime Heat.”
Celebrating their queerness and Mexican culture, the track came alongside a hilarious and
hard-hitting visual (see the video here) directed by Richard Whymark (Missy Elliott, PJ Harvey,
Black Angels)

Engulfed In The Marvelous Decay boldly displays a broad spectrum of moods and sounds from the
soaring and redemptive “Mariposa” (see the video here) to the blistering nu-metal of “American
Faggot” and “Cancel Culture Blues”, the pure radiant chill hop joy of “Okinawa” and the hypnotic,
banjo-tinged atmospheric soulful experimentalism of “Leaves''. The production team includes
KDEATH of Moodie Black (who are serving as support for Maynard James Keenan’s band Puscifer
this summer), Whatever Cecil and Lazerbeak (Lizzo, Doomtree), the latter of which helped to birth
the undeniable hit that is “Mariposa''.

It’s all rounded out with cameos by Ceschi Ramos, Rodleen Getsic (best known for her vocals on
“Knife Prty'' by Deftones), Sammus and others. Pulling not just from rap, Engulfed draws influence
from indie rock, electronic music, glitch, metal and punk and is a self-reflective, diverse and
charismatic commentary on the bigotry of the Trump administration. It’s also a fiercely honest story of
the challenges of navigating an often unjust world while battling addiction and the triumph of the
feeling that comes from graduating to a place of self-acceptance and pride.


With 650,000 streams on their hit single "Iamnotforeveryone," it's safe to say Myles Bullen (he/they)
(Absentee Shawnee) is on their way to becoming a household name. Hailing from Portland, ME the
self-described "migratory, songbird, rap seamstress, art poet" draws influences from indie rock bands,

underrated rappers, spoken word poets, and soft, folk melodies. Bullen has toured the US and Europe
performing at music venues, colleges, recovery centers, prisons, festivals, coffee shops, and opera
houses. They have released several EPs, singles and multiple albums including their latest, Mourning
Travels (Fake Four Inc. January 2022), which includes the single “Ordinary Magic,” and features
Armand Hammer’s Billy Woods (see the video here).
