MAARQUII- (marquise dickerson) was born in Eldorado Arkansas, he moved to Tillamook Oregon at 13. There he acquired a deep interest in the arts; music and dance specifically. He trained in ballet, jazz, and street styles such as vogue, house and waacking. Highly influenced by ball culture and the underground queer club scene, his art often reflects those influences. Musically, he is inspired by greats like Erykah Badu, Myyki Blanco, Missy Elliott, and Zebra Katz to name a few. In the last year alone he has infiltrated the Portland scene; cultivating his craft and performing at parties such as «Club Kai Kai,» «Boyuerism» and «Yes Please.” He is also a dancer for local RnB band Chanti Darling, who was recently voted Portland's best new band by Willamette Week. It was through performing at the local event „Sad Day“ ( put on by Patrick Buckmaster) that he was introduced to producers/artists Derek Stilwell and SaintMichaelLorenzo of JVNITOR and BRUXA, and thus „HEAVY PETTY“ was born.

Pleasure Curses is an post-disco duo based out of Portland Oregon.

The creative and production partnership consists of Jahn Alexander Teetsov and Evan Maxwell Grice; childhood friends who reconnected after a decade through a chance meeting.

Formed in Washington DC, they sharpened their teeth playing everywhere from sweat-soaked punk basements and raging house parties to five star hotels and national art galleries in the city. Influenced by the aesthetics of electro, disco, new wave, and early hip-hop, they strafe the lines between experimental and accessible dance music that shatters the apathy of audiences at shows with manic and propulsive energy. Recently, that energy has propelled them to the west coast where they are currently located in Portland, Oregon.

— Schaus

Schaus is an electronic, wannabe-pop project who performs in Portland, Oregon. Schaus released his debut album, Handshake, through UK record label Them There Records. The album has no features and was written, recorded and produced by Schaus.

Lately, Schaus has formed a creative partnership with drummer cjhermsen for live shows meant to bridge the gap between feeling and reality. Schaus is also working on a follow-up LP to be released in 2018.
