SPREAD THE WORD to the likeminded!
The question is not if we will be extremists, but what kind of extremists we will be. The nation and the world are in dire need of creative extremists. MLK

Continuing the fusion of art and activism, typonexus collaborates with Filastine for a forget-me-not warehouse all-nighter. BE THERE; here are a few reasons why:
FILASTINE produces gritty electronic music - filled with both jagged edges and moments of sad sweetness; the prototype of globalized urban sound which will devastate your subwoofer that collides the lowest frequencies of bass with the highest-level beat science, acoustic instruments, and field recordings. Just a curious arsenal - from a shopping cart to ancient African instruments tuned to Indonesian scales or equipped with high-tech software. He creates award-winning videos and helms Sound Swarm public interventions (an orchestra of bike-mounted megaphones conducted by pirate radio transmitters, with recent actions in support of the Occupy Movement). He designed a post-crash currency and founded the anarchist marching band, The Infernal Noise Brigade, for the Battle of Seattle. You may have seen him at a sweaty Tokyo nightclub, a football stadium in Casablanca, a respected euro-fest like Sónar, in a parking lot in Borneo, or touring the US with Beats Antique or Bassnectar.
NOVA grew up singing pentecostal spirituals with her grandfather, Koranic recitations in the mosque, and Javanese gamelan music. When not on tour, Nova gives workshops on art and environmental activism.
NPR: Filastine makes music that is powerfully political and distinctly global. The artist-activist splices together modern electronic rhythms with sounds from around the globe in order to discuss issues large and small.
THUMP/VICE: Filastine made his way to an to an impromptu refugee camp, Calais Jungle, on his own dime to deliver a live set. The Barcelona-based producer has a history of combining music and activism. While living in Seattle, he founded the Infernal Noise Brigade, a radical marching band, to perform at protests surrounding the World Trade Organization's infamous ministerial conference in 1999. He trotted out Sound Swarman orchestra of bike-mounted megaphones conducted by pirate radio transmittersat demonstrations across the continent, and stormed the barricades during Barcelona's Indignados protests. Given that track record, providing pro bono entertainment to the Calais Jungle's residents seemed a logical call for an artist who prefers to perform with his live setup wired to a shopping cart as a critique of globalization and consumerism.
PITCHFORK: Stage Boundary Songs is a "musical response" to the Oscar-nominated documentary, The Act of Killing. It features "psychedelic folk, rock, and soul made in the decade surrounding Indonesias 1965 coup". Nova digitized music from the vinyl collection of the Museum Musik Malang.
SPIN: Filastine makes dystopian bass music for crumbling urban futures. He collapses sounds associated with disparate geographiespentatonic scales from Middle Eastern music, rap and dubstep from the US and UK, the opulence of First World classical music, and the scarcity of production techniques in the Global South. You wonder if the subjects are the scavenging survivors of some cataclysmformer fat-cats who are clinging to their fading wealth and disintegrating currency after World War IV of sticks and stones.
