Manic Science (Manic Focus x Break Science) - This combination will be something special. Expect Break Science's electro funk/Pretty Lights Music vibes to mix right into Manic Focus's future funk/All Good Record's sound. You already know drummer Adam Deitch is going throw it down hard, with his partner on keys, Borahm Lee.

The Floozies - One of Magnetic Mag's favorites, this duo consisting of brothers Mark & Matt Hill, have been throwing down some of the hardest hitting funk sets. Expect Zapp & Roger-esque talkbox and guitar licks from Matt, and funky breaks on the drum set from Mark.
