About

Native Sun

They call our city Nap because it’s the most slept-on city in America.

This is Native Sun’s answer to the question of how Indianapolis came to be nicknamed Nap Town. All too often, Indy locals lose faith in the spirit of their city and insist it’s named so because it’s a sleepy metropolis in the Midwest with nothing to do or see. This cultural crippling has subdued the drive to create in much of the city’s talent by bogging down artists with despair and leaving them with little hope for a chance to gain national recognition.

But the native sons of Native Sun have a different outlook on their city of Nap. It is their belief that Indianapolis harbors a wealth of talent, particularly in the vein of hip hop. Leading by example, the band envisions that traditional hip hop elements (compelling lyricism, dusty samples, dope beats) paired with the versatility of live instrumentation has the potential to create music that sounds like nothing before it.

Leveraging more than 20 years of combined experience as professional musicians and performers, B Meeks (bass), Sleepy (drums) and B Young (emcee) began to intertwine their musical backgrounds within the context of hip hop when Native Sun formed in 2008. The resourceful musicians draw from their familiarity in gospel, rock, electronic, jazz and soul, creating music that sounds much bigger than what one would expect from a 3 piece act. It is this solid foundation in live music (as compared to produced beats) that sets Native Sun apart from other hip hop groups.

Through their vision to be an example of success to artists in Indianapolis and similar places, Native Sun has earned a reputation as a first call backing band in the Indianapolis hip hop scene. They’ve had the honor of performing with Elzhi of Slum Village and DJ Logic, as well as opening for Foreign Exchange, Musiq Soulchild, Mayer Hawthorne, Black Milk and Muhsinah. After putting in more than 30 hours of grinding in the studio, Native Sun released its full-length debut album, Step Into The Light in August of 2012. Continuing to further push their creative limits, the band looks forward to releasing, The Undeniable EP and subsequent tour to follow in the Spring and Summer of 2014.

About

What the Bleep

A respected purveyor of ragga sounds, What the Bleep’s pseudonym depicts the character behind the music as unconventional and undefinable. He defies stereotypes and assumed cultural contexts, maintains no blind allegiances to genres or scene players, and is known to follow his own path.

For many years, What the Bleep was the unfaltering and widely-heralded ambassador of ragga jungle. Self-taught and coming from the unlikely place of Bowling Green, Ohio, his early story was one of a dormant passion for rhythm unleashed through turntables. Identified by his flailing locks and the fierce energy of a frenzied technician, he quickly became a staple in the Midwest. And marching forward he came to touch corners of the country and reach a global audience through years of broadcasting on jungletrain.net. Meanwhile, he had harnessed his influence in the scene and quickly-learned knowledge of event production to bring electronic music culture to his hometown in the form of Konkrete Jungle Bowling Green.

Fast forward to today – his 10-year-long dreadlocks are retired, he has left behind the limitations of a single genre and the vinyl medium, and he now sees music culture with a new clarity and greater depth. Never having slowed down as a DJ, his partnership with long-time co-selector foi oi oi is booming with a multi-genre “forward-thinking junglist” style found in energetic live sets and their annual mix series, Feelings for Detroit. And as a solo DJ, What the Bleep is reinvented as a roots-oriented versatile selector – dubby, heady, moody, and bassy. Beyond the stage, he continues to use his experience to push forward with a hand in event production, booking, promotions, and otherwise maximizing the potential of the culture.
