Chris Conde
“As a plus size, queer rapper Brooklyn’s Chris Conde combines the classically detached spheres of hip-hop, hardcore punk, indie rock and avant-garde experimental noise. In their unabashedly vulnerable and poignant bars, Conde strives to relate to their audience through an honest communication of overcoming drug addiction, internalized homophobia, and self-acceptance.”

Slut Magic "All those pretty, bi-looking people back there must be the Slut Magic crew." -overheard at Slut Magic show.

Slut Magic is an angsty, sonic make-out session from Brooklyn, New York. Over the past four years, the band has made dream-inspired indie punk and garage pop with Laruicci Records and Rock Hand Records. Slut Magic's 2020 album, Trauma Queen was unleashed on toxic-green vinyl and WDNF Philly named it album of the year.


In 2022 they released a punk commentary on the American Dream: Picket Fence, and an experimental hip-hop collab with Tenesha the Wordsmith. They melted in Brooklyn, toured the northeast and midwest, and made lots of new gorgeous friends. Palm Treat released a Hot Boyfriend shirt, and more new Slut Magic designs. The next album is brewing; and this dreams vs. reality music  can be heard at their upcoming shows all over 2023. 

Souvenirs music is a unique brand of synth pop magic- the Brooklyn-based 27 year old seeks to effortlessly reference the classic sounds he was raised on, while his millennial/Gen Z cusp sensibilities keep him proudly tuned in to the current pop frequencies. The result is an infectious testament to youth, heartbreak, and the modern queer experience, scored by sweeps and hooks fit for a queen (Carly Rae Jepsen). Souvenir’s heartbeat is synced with that of the east coast- from a small town on Cape Cod, to music school in Miami, to now being a true New York City Boy. With his brand new EP "HUMAN NATURE" produced by FLORIO out September 30, 2022, Souvenir is forging his own path with the unshakable optimism of a true double Sag, to mine his share of pop euphoria.
