Artists We Work With
If you click the "music" link below, you'll find a collection of early projects and unfinished songs on SoundCloud that were created from the very music group that started this label, as well as reposts of songs/mixes from our artists & mixes that our CEO, Jacob Hoffman, has put together. More music coming soon.
Producer & Engineer
Jackson Parks grew up in Lisle, Illinois which is a small suburb outside of Chicago. He got into music production through various school programs to further his understanding of music theory. Through this, Jackson was able to harness the creativity and knowledge he procured into his own type of sound. His biggest influences right now are Peekaboo, G Jones, and anything else on the experimental side of trap music. Jackson hopes to bring something familiar yet unique to the EDM scene, and hopes his music speaks to tase regards if not more.
Rapper & Songwriter
“I was born and raised in Chicago, IL. I'm 20 years old and I started music around the age of 17. Really wasn't taking it serious at first, but my cousin, Pluto was. He played a big role in introducing me to music and being an actual artist.. I started making a couple songs expressing pain that I haven't spoken on my whole life. Once I started receiving feedback from my peers telling me how much I touched them, I continued the journey. I want people to feel my pain & understand my story & where I came from. I wanna be a product of my environment and lead by example for our youth. I want to let them know; no matter what's around you or what you experience, you could always overcome & become greater! I'm the type of person who likes being different & a person who's willing to put it all on the line when it's needed.”
The Kid LB
Rapper, Singer & Songwriter
"My name is Levi Bollnow and I’m from Lisle, IL. I began making music because I was inspired by my favorite artists. Artists like Juice WRLD, The Kid Laroi, Post Malone, and many more inspired me to create my version of what I felt was music. I’ve had a love for music since I was a kid, and I’ve always known I wanted to do something with it later on in life. So now I’m finally creating my own music, so I can inspire others just like others inspired me."
