Massive Ideas Presents: Pumpkin
Pumpkin is not like other DJs. He isn't bound by genre, tempo or playing the latest and hottest tracks. Instead, he finds a familiar thread in songs from multiple genres, styles, and eras, and weaves them into a sound that is all his own.
After starting his first band in 5th grade, and playing on the Sunset strip before he was old enough to drive, it wasn't until 2004 that he discovered house music and began the process of transitioning from musician to DJ. In 2006 he was asked to join the LA based DJ and underground event crew Pocket Underground, and since then has become a mainstay at some of the largest, most innovative festivals in the country, including Coachella, Lightning in a Bottle, Art Outside & EDC.
Pumpkin's quirky remixes of familiar classics create a sense of dance floor sentimentality that crowds revel in. From Peter Gabriel to The Muppets, Blind Melon to folk songstress Tina Dico, Pumpkin digs deep when selecting a song to remix and reinterpret.
Equally at home in a dark warehouse, a packed nightclub, or sunrise at an outdoor festival, Pumpkin is a master at reading the crowd and adjusting his unique selection to turn any dance floor into a big ol' puddle of lovesauce.
Warp 9's obsession with sound began a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. It has since evolved through several different phases, taking many turns over the lightyears as they have shared in all sorts of musical adventures. Finally landing in Miami, Warp9 has united forces to decode the information beamed here from a distant star and deliver it to you through their music: spaced out grooves served with a dose of galactic funk that will navigate you into uncharted territories.
Warp 9 consists of Adam Shechter, an accomplished multi-instrumentalist and graduate from Berklee College of Music in Sound Design; and Jeff Glazer, an experienced controllerist and veteran DJ of over 12 years. When performing live, they incorporate a unique blend of live guitar, synths, sound manipulation and DJ'ing. Warp9 is currently working on a full release of original songs, so stay tuned for more to come from this talented duo!
