The following description comes from the event organizer.

Nourished By Time

Nourished By Time, the Baltimore based songwriter/producer with a unique blend of New Wave, R&B, and Dance, Nourished By Time's music explores themes of existentialism, love, consumerism and their relationship with labor.

The project was initially created in Los Angeles (where the artist used to live in Koreatown) at the end of 2019. After two years of failure and artistic differences with a creative partner, the impulsive artist abruptly left LA and drove solo across the country, back to his hometown of Baltimore. Where they would work odd jobs, attempt to recover mentally, fall In love, get heartbroken and obsessively write songs under Nourished By Time. In 2022, the artist had their first label release with the 2 song Erotic Probiotic — EP under the London indie label Scenic Route. This year NBT joined 4AD's post punk band Dry Cleaning on a 20 stop tour of North America as well as a remix of their album track 'Gary Ashby.' Continuing to build his collaborative credentials, he also features on progressive electronic artist Yaeji's debut album, With A Hammer on XL Recordings. This all before dropping his critically acclaimed album Erotic Probiotic 2, picked up Pitchfork's 'Best New Music' and featured on 'Best Of 2024' lists on Gorilla vs Bear (#1), Pitchfork (#5), The Guardian, The Fader, Paste and more.

urika’s bedroom

urika’s bedroom hides in plain site; focused and alive. You hear the noise and hiss; cracking through the digital heat. “It’s not quiet here, but at least there is understanding”, urika adds.  
 
After years of touring as a multi-instrumentalist (2070, St. Panther, Youth Lagoon) and producing for artists like LA outfit untitled (halo), Los Angeles transplant urika’s bedroom returns to his personal practice with debut single “Junkie”. The self-produced track was mixed by Sonny DiPerri (DIIV, Animal Collective, Portugal. The Man), and sees distorted drums and static soaked guitars meet stung and whispered vocals. A birdsong or a siren speaking sweetly through a wall of chaos, urika offers a clear and welcome respite from the noise of a shifting reality.  
 
Though urika’s practice has extended to creative direction, modeling, and styling; music remains his sanctuary. urika cites the glitched-out guitar driven songs of Ecco2k's and off-kilter genius of Alex G's songwriting as vital entities in shaping his sonic identity, as well as finding creative kinship with forward-thinking artists like Yves Tumor, Oneohtrix Point Never, and Arca.
