Friday night live at Transistor: Host and Radius. Sound by Jon Monteverde.
Originally from Miami, Host been a DJ in New York City for the past five years and recently started writing electronic music. He combines laid-back melodies with a strong pulse, bringing both city flavors together. His self-released EP "The Oath" dropped in July; it surveys the ambient landscape with new ears while providing the basis of an ever-evolving style. While pursuing as many opportunities to perform live, Host's main focus is currently on his new release due early next year.
A multidimensional hip-hop/electronic-based artist from South Chicago, Radius started crafting beats in 2001. After producing numerous tracks for local rappers he began to further hone his skills as a producer/live performance artist by winning in Chicago area beat battles and later performing in various hiphop/electronic showcases with the Moment Sound Crew (Garo, Lokua & Slava). He has rocked alongside notable artists like Blu & Exile, Eliot Lipp, Tall Black Guy, The Opus, Thavius Beck, Mux Mool, Dark Party, Maker and Guilty Simpson at various Chicago venues including Sonotheque, The Abbey Pub, The Subterranean, Darkroom, Metro, Reggie's Rock Club, Morseland, Rodan, as well as The Beat Swap Meet in Los Angeles.
