Some of my favorite artists are just bedroom producers that only come out at night to perform in front of small crowds in small venues.  Blackbird Blackbird is a single producer that goes by the name of Mikey Maramag.  Mikey calls Hawaii home, but resides in San Fransico.  Blackbird Blackbird cites that his influences come from Caribou and Washed Out on the Psychedelic end and then James Blake and Four Tet on the other end.  You can see in Mikey’s music that his influences go far and his music ever farther.  It might be considered experimental music, but it’s just straight up good music in my opinion.
