with Gemini ClubPopscene DJsCapital CitiesProduction duo Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian make up the core of Capital Cities, an emerging L.A.-based band that writes shamelessly catchy, intelligent electro/pop tunes. Although a new band, you've probably already heard their music through their day job as a successful commercial composing team writing for the likes of Big Home Improvement Corporation, Giant Japanese Auto Maker and Multi-National Telecommunications Conglomerate.Performing as a three piece with guitarist Nick Merwin, their live show is crafted to make the terminally awkward dance and the cynically cultured say, That was actually pretty good."Gemini ClubGemini Club is Dan Brunelle, Tom Gavin and Gordon Bramli, a three-piece indie-electronic dance band from Chicago, Illinois. Their unique live shows have been tearing up the scene for the last two years. Far from the conventional live performance, Gemini Club have a specially designed rig that allows for on-the-fly remixing of their own songs meaning each Gemini Club show is different from the last. This has resulted in them being asked to the support the likes of Chromeo, A-Trak, Two Door Cinema Club, Flosstradamus, Dj Falcon and Chateau Marmont.Their first single, Ghost "Ghost" came out hot in the blogosphere, which has resulted in remixes from Hey Champ, Barretso, Golden Bug and Only Children. The track has also been picked up for air play from BBC Radio 1's tastemaker show "In New DJs We Trust."From the mid-west to the Orient, Gemini Club's own remix chops are in demand online and across the globe. Their remix for Australian band The Vanish went straight into the top ten of Hype Machine's charts. The band's spin on "Cold Dust Girl" entered the same top ten charts on five different occasions within a month - and their remix for Shinichi Osawa has been a mainstay on the iTunes dance charts in Japan. Most recently, the gents of GC's remix of Chilly Gonzales premiered on the RCRD LBL blog as the most downloaded track of the week.
