Reptar - A biography

From the greater Athens-Atlanta-Asheville area, the four have been playing music since the beginning of recorded history, but playing shows as Reptar since December 2008. Since then, Reptar has created quite a sensation around the Southeast and just wrapped up a 7" recording with producer Ben Allen (Sean P. Diddy Combs, Gnarls Barkley, Animal Collective, Beastie Boys Matt and Kim) to be released on Allen's label Make Records Not Bombs available for purchase at http://mrnb.bigcartel.com/

Reptar likes to dance and have been likened to The Talking Heads, Animal Collective, Prince, Marky Mark, Lake, Air, and the Jackon 5. The band is made up of Andrew McFarland, a Brazilian native, classically trained snare drummer, and sophmore at UGA, Ryan Engleberger, who currently attends Dartmouth College in the Artic Circle majoring in Jaco Pastorius' fretless bass, Graham Ulicny, a hernianted African Soukous guitarist and AstroBioElectroPhysics student at the University of North Carolina in Asheville, and William Kennedy, greatgodson to Herbie Hancock's ARP 2600 and connosiour of fine chocolate (85% cocao or above) and sophmore at UGA. With Reptar's powers combined, they can topple small buildings, smaltzy restaurants, and shmuppy next-door-neighbors with our devastating wall of synthesizers and samples. Dig?

press clippings-
"After conquering the Southeast, what could be next for this backbeat-infused sex-pop foursome?

"We were thinking about Mars," drummer Andrew McFarland said. "We'd like to just take that over, and devote the entire planet to synthpop.""
-Red and Black 9-25-09

"Reptar played at my house, and people were standing on the washing machine and on countertops. There were over 100 people jumping up and down and going wild. We heard a snap, and the house was sagging after that and people were chanting, "Break the floor! Break the floor!" But I couldn't blame them all for it because, you know, it was a Reptar show."
-Flagpole 4-28-10

"Bip: computer data courses through the PA describing a metallic-tinged, slightly echo-y, melodic, but mostly percussive sound sequence which provides an accented, repetitive framework for this immediately pleasurable opening groove. "
Flagpole 5-27-09

"[Reptar] thought the crowd was so wonderfully raucous they decided to hold a dance competition, to which the winner received a golden spatula. The ease with which Reptar was able to form a formidable connection with their crowd only added to the enthusiasm of the already electrical ambiance"
Performer Magazine 11-12-09

"These Southern-fried electronic Afro-poppers are known for the sticky dance riots of their live shows. And now, thanks to producer Ben Allen (Animal Collective), who stumbled upon a Reptar show in Atlanta and booked studio time with the band the very next day, they've got an upcoming EP that whirs and palpitates like their signature sweat-on-the-walls gigs."
