The SUREFIRE SOUND North American Tour

WSG:



AFRICA HITECH - Warp Records - London England / Sydney Australia

( Mark Pritchard & Steve Spacek )

SUREFIRE SOUND is pleased to bring you the second installment of our North American tour. For our Winter 2011 edition we're featuring one of the most talked about electronic acts of the year coupled with a vibrant cross section of great North American talent from the Surefire Agency roster and beyond. featuring AFRICA HITECH (Warp Records, UK/Australia) Hot off the heels of a series of lectures at the 2011 Red Bull Music Academy in Madrid and the spring release of one of the most talked about electronic albums of the year, the legendary duo of Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek will open your mind and heart to a virtual tapestry of sound from all aspects of bass music. Their musical history is astounding with projects such as Global Communications, Harmonic 313, Spacek and others under their belts. With such a vast array of experience expect to be taken on an energetic journey through sound.
"Africa Hitech is more than a name; it is an ideology - one that embodies its members' passions for an eclectic diaspora of electronic styles, from soul, dub and acid to UK garage, grime, techno, house and Jamaican dancehall. Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek stand at the intersection of all these styles and the result is a synthesizer fuelled syncopated percussion and bass madness."

MUX MOOL - Ghostly International / Moodgadget - Minneapolis, MN

"I know it's electronic music," Brian Lindgren says, "but sometimes I feel like an old-timey traveling musician with an M-Audio Trigger Finger instead of a guitar." As Mux Mool, Lindgren has been criss-crossing the country by himself for years, collecting records, loops, and samples, and rocking parties in towns both large and boondock-small. Lindgren is a self-confessed nerd to the bone, an incurable doodler, a Star Trek: The Next Generation fan; he lives on energy drinks and barely sleeps, spending his days working on music and his nights absorbing Internet memes by the hard-drive load. Mux Mool's homespun electro hip-hop is the product of an introverted mind, an extroverted imagination, and a bottomless cultural appetite.

Lindgren's life in music began in Minnesota with a cheap toy sampling keyboard ("I remember being so fascinated by how much a sound changed when you dropped it down several octaves"). Flash forward a few years (and more than a few keyboards), and the teenage Lindgren began recreating his favorite soundsDilla's stutter-step beats, classic video-game music, abstract electronic noiseusing software and digital effects, glazing them with tape hiss and vinyl static. An early Mux Mool track, the slinky strut of "Lost and Found," was discovered by Moodgadget Records and released on their Rorschach Suite compilation, eventually finding its way onto iTunes' Best of 2006 Electronic list. A string of EPs, tracks, and remixes followed, including the song-a-day project Drum EP, the grimy talkbox anthem "Night Court" on the Ghostly International/[Adult Swim] comp Ghostly Swim in 2007, and the Ritalin-fueled "Ballad of Gloria Featherbottom" on 2009's Moodgadget-curated Nocturnal Suite on Ghostly. Mux Mool's 2010 full-length debut, SKULLTASTE, is the culmination of years of toil and experimentation, gathering Lindgren's myriad talents and obsessions into one gloriously sprawling document&183;

As for where he got that name, Lindgren offers up an oddly telling story: he was dubbed Mux Mool by a band he admired, after he posted a blog on MySpace soliciting fans to submit names for his project. "Mux is short for 'multiplexing,' which is the streaming of many types of information through one channel," he explains, "and Chac-Mool is an ancient Meso-American statue of a reclining man." A technologically complex breed of synthesis and a timeless piece of indigenous art. Sounds about right.

SINISTARR - Metalheadz/Renegade Hardware/Creative Source/Hospital/Peer Pressure - Detroit

Sinistarr has made his mark onto the international drum and bass scene with his unique interpretation of his rich musical influences from his hometown, Detroit, the famous city known for its authentic house, techno, and electro. His unique take on his musical influences such as techno artists Aril Brikha, Derrick may, Lucas Rodenbush, Aux 88, Drexciya, Japanese Telecom, Stingray313, and hip hop such as Danny Brown, J Dilla, and Harmonic 313 has been the foundation for Sinistarrs vibrant and upcoming music career as a DJ and to the richness to his production.

Theres no doubt that the buzz around this prolific artist comes from all around the world from todays top djs such as: Makoto, DJ Ink, Loxy, Asides, Random Movement, Goldie, Marcus Intalex, Lenzman, Commix, Kiat, Lynx, and Need For Mirrors.

The last 2 years have been key in establishing Sinistarrs stronghold into the spectrum of Drum and Bass DJs. 2009 has been the year of numerous feature publications from Knowledge Magazine and other local magazines such as Real Detroit and the Detroit Free Press, and countless airplays on several popular radio shows by Fabio, Pete Tong, Bailey, Crissy Criss (BBC Radio 1), DJ Hype (Kiss) and on Hospital Podcast plays. If you werent hearing Sinistarr on the radio, you were catching him live either during various clubs around the Midwest, at his debut performance at the Winter Music Conference in Miami, as well as major dates in other major US cities During his debut tour in 2010 (L.A., New York, Chicago, Orlando) or performing at the 2010 Detroit Electronic Music Festivals 10th Anniversary last year. That busy schedule did not slow down Sinistarr on the production tip -- His 12 Solar9/Mainstay was signed onto the famous Metalheadz imprint and has even gone out of the normal tune-signing circuit, collaborating with Deep Soul Music & Lacoste Shoes on the label's limited edition shoe line.
