|Maoli (meaning "Native" in Hawaiian) started in Maui with Glenn Awong, a 14- year-old with a passion for music, and Kana Akiu-Corpuz. Since then, the boys from Maoli focused more on sharing their music and passion with a bigger audience. Maoli was able to garner fans from all over the United States as well as an international crowd including Guam and Australia. Their music went on to play in parts of Europe, such as Germany, Italy, Scotland, Japan and others.
Dubbest has been forging its own path through the heavily forested reggae landscape, expertly infusing roots of traditionalism with a refreshing improvisational savvy that calls to mind not only the studio experimentation of pioneering dub producers Osbourne "King Tubby" Ruddock and Lee "Scratch" Perry, but also the real-time exploration of jam bands like the Grateful Dead and Phish. As friends in high school, guitarist Andrew MacKenzie, singer/melodica player Ryan Thaxter, bassist Sean Craffey, guitarist Cory Mahoney, and drummer Kyle Hancock shared a love of pop-punk and ska, bonding over bands like Black Flag, until they caught wind of Augustus Pablo's 1974 dub classic Ital Dub. This was the game changer that set the stage for their current musical approach, using introspective, spacious bass and drum grooves to anchor a thickly-textured interplay of instruments, vocals, and timbres. With their third album, Light Flashes, Dubbest is poised for national recognition.
