The initial offering from the minds of Fran Dominguez (Aimé) and Charles Guilterre (Fallen Fronds), who met one fateful night in Downtown Los Angeles at the Create:Fixate 'I Art You' 10-year anniversary party in February 2012, both of whom performed that night.
Los Angeles resident Fran Dominguez a.k.a. Aimé is an electronic artist/hip-hop beat-maker, occasionally likened to artists such as Boards of Canada, Ulrich Schnauss and the Icelandic band Amiina and French duo Air, for his more hybridized orchestral styles. Following the success of his first album "Place Your Hands Over Your Eyes" that included accolades (Los Angeles Music Awards “Electronic Album of the Year” 2007), Aimé has since gone on to produce music for cable channels, short films, and has remixed the work of artists both mainstream (Radiohead, Minus The Bear, Gorillaz, Beyonce, Brian Eno & David Byrne, Whitney Houston) and underground (Pinklogik, The Dead Amps). Aimé makes music for your headphones; for your couch; for short train commutes; for your favorite book; for rainy days; and for far, desolate corners of the world.
Producer/DJ Charles Guilterre arrived in LA from Brooklyn in September 2010. Best known for his Hump Wednesday parties in New York City's East Village in the late 1990s, his electronic sound incorporates elements of lounge, experimental, electro, synthwave, heady house, and a hint of industrial, the latter heavily influenced by music from Chicago's WaxTrax! label from the mid-1980s. Guilterre is currently concentrating his production/remixing efforts on his production team, Fallen Fronds. Thermal Breakdown, the debut EP from Fallen Fronds, was released on October 23, 2012.
