Kin Sventa (meaning holy festival in native Mexican) is an electronic musician based in Oakland. His influences range from spiritual jazz, new age, ambient and hip hop music. Utilizing a sampler and modular synthesizer, Kin Sventa prioritizes improvisation and live remixing in the pursuit of pushing grooves in to meditative trance inducing states.
California-born artist Brogan Bentley produces a hybrid style that draws inspiration from the sub-sonic bellows of the electronic underground upwards to the celestial music of the spheres. A deep familial lineage in music provides a foundation that allows him to seamlessly convey what is timeless and essential through song, using Jungle, Ambient, Psychedelic and Dub stylings as vessels to carry energy forth. With Bentley’s soaring vocals serving as guides, his ethereal leanings are grounded by the depths of soulfulness. Having released music with Los Angeles-based Leaving Records since 2012, his second full-length LP with the label will be arriving in 2021. Photo by Inga Schunn.
