Bells and Robes
Bells and Robes
Bells and Robes will lead you on a refreshing electronic journey through time and space, combining elements of live improvisation with synth-heavy sounds of the future.

Fusing ambient chillwave and high-tempo bass music, Bells and Robes aims to create dynamic energy while simultaneously lulling listeners into fantasy-like dream state.

Performing over self-produced electro-soundscapes, Luke Sipka plays live keyboard behind the boards while Dean Spaniol plays drums and triggers samples. The duo combines the high energy and crisp electronic sound of a dance DJ with the unpredictable improvisation of a jam band set.

After Forming on the Winter Solstice in 2012, the duo hope to continue their pursuit of music by showcasing their eclectic sound throughout the Southeast and the nation.

Bells and Robes has shared the stage with ODESZA, Emancipator, Lotus, Beats Antique, Papadosio, Break Science, Mr. Carmack, Soulection, Autograf, Kodak To Graph, The Heavy Pets, Dynohunter and many more!

As seen on: Suwannee Hulaween, Aura Music and Arts Festival, Luna Light Music and Arts Festival, Purple Hatter’s Ball, Disc Jam Music Festival, Zen Awakening Festival, Earthdance Florida, Swamp Records Showcase, Reunion Music Festival, and Imagine Festival.

The Bells and Robes name comes from a Zen koan titled "Bells and Robes."

Tone Connect
Tone Connect
Tone Connect projects a musical aesthetic combining visual analog mediums into dark and soulful dance music. Matt Peavy, also known as Tone Connect, sprouted from the suburbs of Atlanta and grew up playing multiple instruments in various indie-rock bands and taking a keen interest in analog Polaroid photography with his trusty SX70. As Matt drifted stylistically out of post-rock sounds to electronic music and analog synths, he became interested in creating a project containing his three favorite analog values: Oscillators, Polaroids, and Pantones. Drawing inspiration from analog synths, color palettes that only a Polaroid photo can create, and lush verbed-out samples gathered through crate digging in Atlanta, Tone Connect bridges the mediums together to create wavy and distorted, downtempo and moody music for those that enjoy analog tastes mixed with grimey-southern electronic sounds.
