S Rodriguez is a Texas-based interdisciplinary artist, writer, and arts organizer. They are the co-creator of Paraspace Books, a transient bookstore dedicated to queer sci-fi and speculative fiction.

Ben Aqua is a multidisciplinary artist and YouTuber based in Austin, Texas. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Ben's visual work has been exhibited internationally and published in Rolling Stone, NPR, NYLON, SPIN, NME, Interview Magazine, Businessweek, Beautiful/Decay, and Hi-Fructose. Their music has been featured in Apple’s “Shot on iPhone” and Adidas ad campaigns, as well as in Resident Advisor, Interview Magazine, The Creators Project, Mad Decent, VICE, Dummy, and FACT Mag.

The West Coast’s favorite trouble maker, TR4VI3ZA, interweaves field recordings taken during direct actions with experimental diasporic beats. With roots in the San Diego (US) and Tijuana (MX) border she plays on her mestizaje by effortlessly blending multiple genres to create hybrids of dark techno cumbia, ambient corridos, hardcore reggaeton or tribal bass. Not far removed from the impacts of militarized border violence, her sets leave traces of dark industrial sounds that carry dualities of comfort and discomfort.

Belial is the stage name of multidisciplinary artist/ musician Matty Zarate. Their works explore themes of autonomy, spirituality, ritual and technology, and how the marriage of the cybernetic and organic worlds have have shaped the performance of modern transgender identity.
