Plaid Hawaii came to fruition as a side project in the Milwaukee home studio of Jason Womp, bassist of Undercover Organism. Since late 2014, he has been making moves in the rising tropical house and indie dance scenes. The refreshing sound of Plaid Hawaii, which finds a blissful balance between digital and live instrumentation, can best be described as “tropidelic”. Musical selections, remixes and original productions are meticulously blended to create an upbeat and sexy live set where most can’t help but fall in love. Named one of Magnetic Magazine’s “6 Must-See Artists Playing North Coast Music Festival” in 2016. Plaid Hawaii has been featured at numerous major music festivals and has shared the stage with many established artists across the scene such as GRiZ, Matoma, Illenium, Cherub, Klingande, Autograf, Phutureprimitive, Two Friends, Zimmer, SNBRN Sunsquabi, Manic Focus, and Win+Woo. Between his extraordinary ability to adapt to any type of set and by constantly seeking to capture an emotion, rather than jumping on whatever style is trending right now; Jason’s vision and following hasn’t stopped building momentum since day one.

Purple Tokyo explores the dark and mysterious places of the mind and yet maintains a sense of fun, feel-good excitement throughout. Bred by two brothers in the gritty corners of Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood, the project synthesizes various sounds from their lived Mexican-American experience. Listeners may also note a kinship with deep house, reggaetron, new wave and vapor-wave genres. The project desires for a musical experience that will sway emotions from one extreme to another. This is especially amplified in their live performances which feature collaborations with musicians, visual artists, and film-makers, including DJ Trentino, Galante El Emperador, Daniel Kelleghan, and Tess Finley. Purple Tokyo's recent achievements include winning Pilsen Battle of the Bands 2017 for a spot at Pilsen Fest, and a 2016 Chicago Nightlife Award for «Best Producer/Remixer».
