Batona Welcomes Floods

Batona is very happy to announce Floods has joined us and we will be putting out their album Transmission this summer.

Floods is Stephen Mejias, guitarist of New Jersey's Multi-Purpose Solution, with his close friend, Brother Todd.

Stephen writes, sings and plays guitar. Todd records, edits, deconstructs, adds synthesizers, and creates the beats.

Floods is a natural Batona band and their sound easily matches both environments that they originate from. From the lights of Jersey City to the vast emptiness of the Pine Barrens, Floods can always be heard, if one can just tune out everything else.

Cloud People - "A Wild Feeling" - PATH2

Aside from indulging in the rare scallion pancake or occasional live appearance…

Cloud People spent the last few years in the vast stretches of the New Jersey Pine Barrens, gathering and honing their dubbed-out electronics amongst the course sands and quiet evergreens.

The first harvest is ready. Complete with a cornucopia of micro-edit intricacies and breaks broken up with the live biodynamic conga mastery of Samuel Michael Moskalik, Batona Music lets loose Cloud Peoples’ first – “A Wild Feeling”.

This first Cloud People output also marks the start of the Cloud People series, The Clouds.
