The story of GOBI begins in west Texas, in the far border town of El Paso, where Justin Dillon and Phil Arciniega first met. The two would venture across the border every weekend spending countless nights dancing in the clubs and Discotecas on “The Strip” in Ciudad Juarez. There the thriving grooves and uptempo beats would take them on many sleepless nights and instill an unstoppable curiosity and desire to create electronic dance music. GOBI’s hybrid of EDM mixed with lyrically driven hooks, has been compared to “RATATAT fronted by Zack De la Rocha”, and has gained GOBI the reputation for turning any room into a dance party. The band’s highly anticipated debut LP is set to be released in the fall of 2012.

Morgan Jenks

Morgan Jenks is a native of Bryan, multi-instrumentalist, and multimedia artist. He makes live electronic music and visuals with customized software: deep sonorities and beats that alternately make you move your feet and scratch your chin.


dot.darkness is an electronic duo hailing from Nashville, TN,
but with origins rooted firmly in Texas soil. Influenced by the sounds of classic video games, metalicious guitars, and 80’s synthpop, members Colin Hemphill and Josh Sheehy [retroskeptic] look to make tunes that are danceable, yet introspective, geeky, yet hauntingly nostalgic. After working primarily on singles, remixes, and a handful of original holiday tunes during 2011-2013, the group released its “debut” EP this past February, titled Damage Over Time.
