Based out of Portland, Oregon, nolongerhuman is the solo electronic project of Clint Robertson.
With a decade of experience in creating harsh and dark electro music, nolongerhuman has gained a large and loyal fan base with his uncompromising melodies and deeply personal lyrics.
nolongerhuman has produced three full-length albums and has been featured on numerous remixes and compilations, toured the United States, debuted new releases in the Top 10 on the German Electronic Web Charts, and has systematically produced genre-bending harsh electronics with a sense of emotion rarely seen.
Combining music theory and personal, soul-searching experiences with harsh industrial is something rare in the genre, but nolongerhuman utilizes a masterful mixture of hard-hitting beats, catchy keyboard riffs, impeccable synth placement, and a haunting sense of ambiance, all of which inject soul and beauty into a genre that is typically defined by volume and attack factor. Vocal samples put nolongerhuman in a historical context, harking back to the early 90’s industrial while also enhancing the diary-esque lyrics of the music.
And while the songs work easily on the dance floor, they also offer the listener a thought-provoking experience with running themes of introspection, integrity, society, and a culture of apathy and blind faith in a somewhat dystopian fashion.
H I V E is a progressive metal band based out of Chicago. They formed in 2016 with the release of their debut self-titled EP which quickly gained traction and praise among the metal community.

H I V E’s dark and sinister attitude has been infused into their sound as well as their aesthetic. Their fans have learned to anticipate a display of extreme ferocity in all areas of their music, artwork, and live performance. H I V E continues to prove time and time again that they will live up to their reputation for delivering the darkest content imaginable in a bold statement to humanity.
