Open Mike Eagle spent the 2010s finding comedy in rap music and American nightmares. On albums like Brick Body Kids Still Daydream and Dark Comedy, he delivered hilarious socio-political insights via half-sung verses laid atop progressive production. Acclaim from publications like Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and NPR coincided with headlining solo tours and top-billing at events like Adult Swim Festival. Between studio sessions, Eagle co-founded The New Negroes, a standup-meets-music variety show that explores perceptions of blackness. He and co-founder Baron Vaughn brought the show to Upright Citizens Brigade, Comedy Central, and venues around the U.S. Since founding his record label Auto Reverse Records, though, Eagle has scaled back the jokes. He’s finally unpacking his traumas and acknowledging their impact.

Brainfeeder / TAR

PBDY (Paul Preston) has been the resident selector/DJ at the heart of the Brainfeeder family for nearly 12 years, hosting radio shows, building DJ mixes, rocking label showcases, instores, afterparties and touring worldwide with Thundercat, Flying Lotus and The Cinematic Orchestra. A self-confessed music fanatic, his inestimable and seemingly inexhaustible passion for new sounds is utterly infectious. He established his own label TAR in 2013, creating a platform to share his favourite experimental sounds sourced from lesser known acts as far afield from the world. It was simply a matter of time before his energy shifted from musical curation to creation. In 2017 PBDY linked with Jeremiah Jae under the moniker JP Moregun for a moody, psych-heavy rap mixtape on Brainfeeder. It was PBDY’s first outing in the role of producer. 2018 saw PBDY make his solo debut on Brainfeeder, contributing the eerily beautiful ‘Bring Me Down’ (featuring vocals by close friend and labelmate Salami Rose Joe Louis) to the label’s 10th anniversary compilation “Brainfeeder X”. 2019 saw the release of PBDY's debut solo record 'Careworn' including features from Samuel T. Herring (Future Islands), Anika & Salami Rose Joe Louis along with musical additions from Jeff Parker, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Tylana Renga & Justin Brown. Post pandemic PBDY has recently shifted his sonic vision a bit towards ambient sounds releasing 2 'untitled' releases & focusing on a more cinematic style as he breaches into the music scoring world. His first short film score came out in 2021 for the short film 'Red Room' based on the novel Bitterhall. With a finished new 2nd album ready to release, more to come from this DJ turned Producer.

                                          PBDY (Paul Preston) has been the resident selector/DJ at the heart of the Brainfeeder family for nearly 12 years, hosting radio shows, building DJ mixes, rocking label showcases, instores, afterparties and touring worldwide with Thundercat, Flying Lotus and The Cinematic Orchestra. A self-confessed music fanatic, his inestimable and seemingly inexhaustible passion for new sounds is utterly infectious. He established his own label TAR in 2013, creating a platform to share his favourite experimental sounds sourced from lesser known acts as far afield from the world. It was simply a matter of time before his energy shifted from musical curation to creation. In 2017 PBDY linked with Jeremiah Jae under the moniker JP Moregun for a moody, psych-heavy rap mixtape on Brainfeeder. It was PBDY’s first outing in the role of producer. 2018 saw PBDY make his solo debut on Brainfeeder, contributing the eerily beautiful ‘Bring Me Down’ (featuring vocals by close friend and labelmate Salami Rose Joe Louis) to the label’s 10th anniversary compilation “Brainfeeder X”. 2019 saw the release of PBDY's debut solo record 'Careworn' including features from Samuel T. Herring (Future Islands), Anika & Salami Rose Joe Louis along with musical additions from Jeff Parker, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, Tylana Renga & Justin Brown. Post pandemic PBDY has recently shifted his sonic vision a bit towards ambient sounds releasing 2 'untitled' releases & focusing on a more cinematic style as he breaches into the music scoring world. His first short film score came out in 2021 for the short film 'Red Room' based on the novel Bitterhall. With a finished new 2nd album ready to release, more to come from this DJ turned Producer.
