Muamin Collective
Muamin Collective
Muamin Collective started with a concept - rapid fire critical thought over beats. Simple? Not actually as easy as it is said, but over the last 8 years what started as a concept, has become praxis. Aaron "aLIVE" Snorton, and Josiah "ZiON" Quarles have made a master work. What began with their critically acclaimed Industry Standard, continued with wHereMYpeoples@ and has culminated in WORLD B. FREE, the perfect summer spin, a drive thru nostalgia and future. It is Astro Black, relevant, smart, brash, and funky. The mix is sublime, thanks to their partner in crime Ereact - who brings us their vision clear and bumping.

The two were childhood friends growing up on Cleveland's east side banging on tables and free-styling late into the night. The two lost touch, but fate would reconnect them years later at a party held by mutual friend and Muamin Co-founder R.A Washington's studio space. The two confided that they were now totally consumed by music, and within a month found themselves camped out with an SU 700, a pen and a pad. The rest is history . . . or at least discography.

A Muamin live show is all about energy, chemistry, and catalogue. With over 50 songs to pull from, and endless supply of beats to remix and rejuvenate older songs, each show is fresh and unique; connecting to audiences in an organic way that cannot be digitized. After opening for the likes of Pete rock, Kool Keith, Little Brother, Ratatat, J-Live, De La Soul, and headlining many more, the trio are veterans of the stage; giving you all they've got, for all they've got.
Case Barge
Case Barge
Case Bargé is an alternative, soulful hip-hop artist from Cleveland, Ohio and the founder of Alls Lost Outside Our Fantasy (ALOOF Recs), a creative collective and independent music label working towards social transformation through artistic expression. His motivation is to inspire and raise levels of consciousness through his creations by waking up those who are distracted by what is sold and exploited in today's mainstream music and media. Whether it's the exploitation of violence, drugs, and women or the destruction of politics, religion, and race; these are topics that drive him to better not only the music industry, but our society as a whole.

Powerful messages come from the once struggling homeless artist that knows about hunger all too well. Making ends meet any way possible, Bargé walked around the grimy streets of Cleveland day and night as he recited lines with every step. He managed to get through hardships after his close encounter to death, getting robbed at gun point, battling a hernia in the brain, and having to learn to walk again. With his journey and struggles, he was given the purpose to be that role model he never had and to empower generations.

Not only is he a recording artist and business owner, Case Bargé is known for his performances. Being able to engage with any crowd, he can go from a poetic a cappella to forming a mosh pit. Although he has produced a great amount of his own shows, he has also opened up for national artists such as, Twista, Scarface, Gun Play, DMC, Casey Veggies, Dom Kennedy, Lil Debbie, Denzel Curry, and King Chip,

Case Bargé took you through his struggle with his debut album at the end of 2015, ‘INSANITY' but now he is in a better place. Juggling between creating music, performing, and being the CEO of his own company, he spent all of 2016 in LA where he grew ALOOF, produced and performed at his sold-out festival, Peace of Mind, and organized a private event for Rihanna’s FentyxPuma Pop-Up shop on Melrose Ave. Now, Bargé is back in the studio, ready to share a 3-part project, ‘Mind', ‘Body', ‘Spirit' which brings a whole new harmonious vibe and positive outlook on life. Fans can expects the first part, 'Mind' in late March.
