Andre Power is co-founder and Art Director of Soulection and has a diverse approach to creative endeavors taking on every project with an open mind and heart. This method and logic translates seamlessly into his musical and visual arts by capturing the essence in each idea and helping to tell a larger story around it through various creative mediums. Veteran painter, illustrator and photographer, Mr. Power transfers his graceful aesthetic into sounds through his own productions, re-edits, mixtapes and live sets, and is quickly gaining the attention of conscious consumers of the musical arts worldwide.
Julio manages worldwide bookings for Soulection, with a heavy hand in strategic partnerships, artist development, and is also a DJ on the roster. A citizen of the world and a resident of both Brooklyn and San Francisco, this seasoned DJ, producer and event curator brings a unique perspective to the label infused with passion, optimism and inherent positivity. As a trusted source of insight and ground breaking music for numerous events, venues, fashion brands, music outlets, and local businesses across the globe, Julio’s zest for life, ability to identify fresh music and creative culture first has lead him to collaborations with brands like MTV, Def Jam, Brooklyn Circus, PUMA and more.
As a multi-faceted and genre-bending DJ, he’s shared the stage with Jazzy Jeff, Craze, J. Rocc, Rick Ross, Goldlink & more, playing stages and events spanning all corners of the planet. Whether blending two records in a unique fashion or working closely to help develop next level music creators, the common thread is his ability to see beauty in all things.
PYRMDPLAZA is an electronic producer, steadily building a contagious presence through Soundcloud. Creating his page in early 2014 after 4 years of development from his home studio, he decided he would upload his first EP that was part of his university project. After uploading, he started getting traction being recognised by a few small online labels and going on to be featured on many different radio shows. Since then he has gone on to release a White Label with Soulection and performed at the renowned Soulection monthly event TSOT as well as supporting other artists such as Mr.Carmack, Jay Prince and AraabMuzik. Also he has collaborated with fellow friends J – Louis, Gravez, Drewsthatdude and Abraham Blue. PYRMDPLAZA’s sound is influenced by the use of heavy drums and stuttering 808 basslines over shimmering melodies, quirky instruments and home recorded percussion, but still retaining a distinct sound.
