Rhett Whatley, aka Daily Bread, started producing beats from his bedroom in 2014 armed with an MPC, a massive record collection, and a background in jazz guitar. His beat head sensibilities found him crafting unique electro-soul and hip-hop tracks that needed to be heard. After releasing a few tracks online, the project was quickly noticed by indie record label Philos Records and he soon joined the ranks of like minded artists like Artifakts and Derlee. Inspired by their collaborations, Rhett began work in earnest on his double LP masterwork “On the Daily” and found himself sharing the stage with his influences like Pretty Lights, GRiZ, The Floozies and STS9. He’s also landed festival plays such as Imagine, Electric Forest, Camp Bisco and more.
Releasing “On the Daily” on Philos in February 2017, Rhett took the Daily Bread project to the Rocky Mountains and spent half the year in Denver soaking up all the electro-soul scene hub had to offer. Now back in ATL and fresh off the 2 million Spotify plays milestone of his release “Moreland Ave Blues,” Rhett is using his freshly honed skills to further the Daily Bread sound and bring his unique vision to ears across the globe.
Daily Bread’s most recent project is the Navigator, Standby LP. Featuring a carefully curated soundscape and prominent retro sci-fi aesthetic inside and out, this vintage yet futuristic electronic body of work is his most fleshed-out to date.
Artifakts is the musical undertaking of Wisconsin-born Garret Meyer that blurs the line between electronic, hip-hop and soul. An ever-evolving artist, Artifakts established his project in 2011 and has been able to break out of the confines of modern electronic music while also contributing to the project both sonically and visually. Landing noteworthy shows across the country with a wide array of both live and DJ sets, this producer has shown his belonging among the ranks of both seasoned beat makers and bands alike.
Since 2012 Artifakts has worked with a plethora of renown musicians, labels and producers both musically and in design to provide a unique catalog of music and art very much rooted in the indie-electronic community. While toting a discography frequently favorited by study/relax playlists and the more introspective listener, an Artifakts performance is anything but stringent in style, often showcasing genres from current EDM to classic funk grooves and anything in between.
