- Otenki
- Lost Element, Spencer Fort, Hotmagandhi, Ari & The Skeletones

Otenki came together through impassioned partnership of guitarists Enoma Asowata, Bassist Josh Tenorio, and Lead Vocalist German Alexander. Members of the band spent their formative years within various punk rock scenes that fostered a sense of community and passion. It is that passion that lead Otenki to doing whatever it took to share their vision and music with everyone. "We did everything we could to reach people. We played acoustically at bigger shows, we passed out flyers, gave music away, wedding crashed, and held parties to help create our community. We didn't just want fair weather fans. We wanted friends who wanted to make our dream part of their dream." states Alexander. It is this connection with their fans that helped them play the Rockstar Taste of Chaos tour(sharing a stage with Deftones, The Used, Killswitch Engage, My Chemical Romance, Thrice) as well as the Vans Warped Tour.

With the release of "KINETIC" Otenki has garnered the attention of Billboard and was selected to be a part of their 2011 Battle of the Bands. The band was featured in Billboard Magazine and on the award show that year. Otenki has also performed Houston's largest music festival, the 2013 Free Press Summerfest along side The Postal Service, Calvin Harris, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. They have garnered attention from terrestrial radio (Houston's own 94.5 KBTZ and Evansville 103 GBF), internet radio (iDobi radio), Reverbnation (featured artist August 2012), Alternative Revolt, the Houston Chronicle, 002 Houston Magazine, Tip Out Magazine (cover story September 2012), and Houston Press. Despite all the accolades the band has received, they haven't lost sight of the two most important things; the fans and the music. "Last year a fan hit us up on Twitter, she shared with me that her grandmother passed away. She said our music was the only thing keeping her together," Asowata states, "I may never be wealthy from this, but having someone connect with what we wrote the way other artists have done for me...you can't put a price on that. People like her are what we do this all for. They are our energy."
