I am so excited for this event and stoked that Rise After-Hours Boston has brought Meat Katie back into Boston. It’s been a little over 5 years since we busted our asses to first bring him to the Phoenix Landing when we were doing Tension. We scraped up everything we could to make the event happen and it went off as expected. Such an amazing night of sounds in that room. Mark (MK) has had a huge influence on not only my DJ’ing but also production, showing me that you don’t have to pigeonhole your taste to one sub-genre. As one of the representatives of a sound called “Tech Funk” he has showed me that you can express your diversity in sound and talent of being able to play sets across the spectrum in a tasteful manner. If you have never had the chance to hear one of his sets or the many releases that his label LOT49 has released, this is your chance on January 18th!Events
Here at Monism Music we are strong supporters of the LOT49 label and the people that are behind it for many reasons. We have followed the production of these folks since the days of Blue Black. Since those days, they have consistently crushed the Tech-Funk scene by bringing the masses nothing but the best across the genre spectrum. Together, we have drank the wine, smoked the smoke and shared the sound systems with these talented yet humble artists. Even in the time of need, they have shared their experiences with advice to us in order to better refine our skills with music and the industry. We are grateful for this. Be on the lookout for OUTSIDER’s remix of Monism artist Nullspace that will be dropping very soon!
With that said, anything that we can assist on pushing their work you will see come through our blogs and any other social networking outlets. DYLAN RHYMES presents a FREE DOWNLOAD of his re-alignment of the AfroJack Pacha on Acid with Seb Leger’s DiscoTechno. You can snatch it up below! Enjoy!News
Dance music’s reining princess of all things twisted returns to Lot49 with a follow up to her first solo release on the label, (Empty Vodka Bottles), which was unleashed on the dance scene last September.
‘Dirty Secrets’ is a naughty techno perversion of an original rock track taken from her Sex & Circuitry project album which was produced alongside guitarist Jim Davies, better known for his axe wielding in bands such as The Prodigy and Pitch Shifter.
Re-creating the original underground electro-rock anthem into something entirely different, and far more fucked up, Odissi takes back her lyrics and flawlessly transforms the initial idea into a brooding, industrial electro monster.
True to her signature sound, she once again injects her music with her sleazy and sultry spoken word vocals, this time in a poetic description of Soho’s vibrant red light district, transvestites, gay bars and seedy brothels.
On the Remix duties, Lot49 has appropriately called in one of the hottest names from Italy’s bubbling underground techno scene, Dyno. Equally known for his love of dark techy grooves, Dyno strips back the vocal and dubs it out, twisting the original into something that wouldn’t sound amiss as the soundtrack to an S&M Orgy. Sleazy and gritty synths roll along tight and driving drums and disorienting guitar stabs. Late night dancefloor headfuckery guaranteed.
For those like the tempo pushed a little harder there’ s also a remix by Hedflux who as of late has been creating quite a buzz with his fresh and distinctive flavor or cerebral tech-funk. In his remix of “Dirty Secrets” he stays true to his sound, drawing on energy from breaks, techno and psychedelic styles, resulting in a fusion of deep driving bass grooves, thumping drops and intricate neon synth-play.
