Esseks (Sam Eckstein) is a Brooklyn based producer and visual artist. His music ranges all the bass-centric genres with a focus on the off-kilter. The diverse elements of his music are tied together with Esseks’ subtle but instantly recognizable sound. It is dark but in a playful sense. Cartoon Villain music you could say. He has built up a large catalog of music since his first release in 2012 and put out releases with Wakaan (AZ), Gravitas Recordings (TX), Foundations Recordings (CA), and Smokers Cough (NY) along with a number of self releases and collaborations with artists like Yheti, Space Jesus, GDP.
Most of the things contained in this soundcloud are short instrumental projects that I’m working on, have given up on, or are completed (rare, I know!). Take a look at mixcloud.com/ogdjp for my up to date mixes!

Chachuba is a four piece electronic/trance-fusion jam band that does not let the notion of “genre” limit the styles and influences found in their live shows. Chachuba has been able to transcend boundaries and have had the honor to play alongside talented jam bands and electronic producers.
The band is influenced by electronic dance music, with improvisation as a key component. Their jams are fueled by heavy and melodic guitar riffs, synths, and funky beats. No matter the show or festival, headlining or supporting gig, Chachuba’s music is infectious–and their fanbase continues to grow day by day.
The band consists of Nate Beitz (bass), Sean DiCosola (keyboard/synth), Gary Goodheart (drums) and Jimmy Klimek (guitar).
From the House of Blues in Chicago to State Bridge Amphitheater in Colorado, Chachuba has begun to spread their music and message all across the United States.
Chachuba is a grassroots band that has been touring for only 2 years and has hit major music festivals such as SummerSet, Summer Camp (Grassroots stage), Backwoods Music (x2), Great North, Hyperion Music and Arts Festival (x2) and many more . With two EPs and two singles featured on theUntz, and their first full length album coming soon expect to see Chachuba in a city near you.

“Finally came Sunday, the day most folks were anticipating. Kicking it off was relatively new Jamtronica group Chachuba. They layed down some funky riffs and tantalizing synths. Look out for this band in years to come, I have a feeling this is only the beginning for Chachuba.” Ray John Summer Set Music Festival
