Diverje was started by Tommy T, front-man of DSBP Records, in 1996. The band started as a metal/industrial hybrid and has mutated since to create a powerful Industrial/electronic hybrid unlike those currently found in the popular music circuit. In the Studio, Tommy T creates the many layers of Industrial and electronic rhythms and melodies, as well as providing vocals, programming and production for Diverje’s many releases. On the stage, Diverje is brought to life by NINO BROWN(GUITAR, KEYBOARDS), VICENTE (KEYBOARDS), KENNY(NOISE TREATMENTS,DISTORTED BEATS). Diverje aims to provide one of the most energetic and entertaining live performances of Industrial music seen on a stage, and delivers on all fronts, having shared the stage with Chemlab, Skinny Puppy, Armageddon Dildos, Imperative Reaction, Hocico, and many other staples of the Industrial and Electronic music world. http://www.dsbp.cx/diverje

Formerly known as sleepdepth, Somno Profundante is the dark art of Ehren Salazar in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Using found sounds and a mixture of vintage, modern and home made equipment, SOMNO PROFUNDANTE invokes whatever spirits prove the best performers in his speechless psychodrama that calls from the demon haunted woodlands of Norway, the industrial sound of Sheffield, Giorgio’s arpeggiated ecstasy and the somber zombie shuffles of 70’s Italia.https://www.facebook.com/sleepdepth/
