Decibel Festival Spotlight: MUTI MUSIC Showcase

Posted in Events, Festivals, Music News with tags , , , , , , , on August 29, 2009 by worldromper

Muti Music was born in the hazy land of San Francisco, an area long known for innovative trends in art and technology that provided a perfect setting for the emergence of a new type of experimental bass music thatMUTI MUSICthe region is now known for. Since 2002 this fresh and dynamic label has supported and promoted the wide minds of artists both domestic and international, making a distinctive mark on the evolution of West Coast Sound. Tribal futurists have found a home with Muti, which is the Bantu word for ‘tree’ or ‘herbal medicine,’ and all who hear this young record label’s organic and transformative sound will indeed experience a catharsis by crunk.

Heyoka begins your healing journey with his gurgling and grinding strain of psychedelic beats, the bass drenching your body in heady reverb as light cosmic sounds bubble out of your brain and lift you to another plane. Mimosa’s sexy, dub-infused basslines continue the warm expedition through a beautiful, beat-soaked soundscape, slapping you ever so lightly now and again to make sure you haven’t slipped into oblivion. The founder of Muti Music, Dov, pushes through boundaries with an elevated and emotive sound; his diverse and adaptive style marks the experience of this San Francisco mainstay. Finally an-ten-nae puts the crunchy cherry on top with his slick blend of broken beats, freaky funk and twists from tomorrow, completing your dosage of music as medicine.

Warning: This medicine has been found to be highly addictive and can lead to spastic convulsions, particularly on the dance floor, often resulting in ecstatic joy and a feeling of complete freedom.

The Muti Music Showcase takes place Sunday, September 27 at Sole Repair. For tickets and more information, please click here.

Dr. Seuss is CRUNK

Posted in Note to Readers with tags , on February 5, 2009 by worldromper

Did you get crunk last weekend? Did you eat green eggs and ham? Apparently the word “crunk” was originally coined by Dr. Seuss in his book “Marvin K. Mooney will you please go now!”:

“You can go in a Crunk-car if you wish.”

I DO wish to go in a Crunk-car, thank you, Dr. Seuss!

DAMN THAT LORAX IS CRUNK!
