Uniform Recordings | Mouthfeel | EAATX | ATX Music Mag Presents:
Gigamesh is the stage name of Matt Masurka, an American multi-platinum selling music producer and DJ. Most recognized for his remix work, he has experienced a swiftly building reputation as one of the most versatile and consistent names in indie-dance music.
Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota (a.k.a. Prince’s hometown and the city that inspired Funkytown), it is no surprise Gigamesh has developed a keen taste for disco and 80′s electro-boogie. The sound is immediately recognizable in much of his music, however he maintains a flexible aesthetic. Gigamesh considers himself an ardent fan of minimalist concert music, jazz, disco, film music, classic rock, and genre-bending electronic music. These elements have all combined to forge his all-inclusive approach to music appreciation and creation.
:::::PUNKS JUMP UP (Kitsune):::::
Londoner Joe Attard & the Swede David Andersson are the two likeminded opposites that make up Punks Jump Up.
During the last 4 years they have released disco club smashes like Blockhead, Get Down (Special CCCrash Mixxx) & Dance To Our Disco on the Parisian label Kitsune & the anthemic Chimes pt 1 track on the kleinTanz label.
In addition to their own releases they have also done official remixes of everyone from Miike Snow, Lykke Li, Gossip, Robyn, Ladyhawke, Crystal Castles, Chromeo, Tiga to Joakim, Oliver, Ladytron, Yelle, In Flagranti, Housse De Racket, Supermen Lovers & Peter Bjorn & John.
Joe & David love the cutting edge of punk & alternative culture but have never shied from a good melody. They feel just as home in pop music as in dance music, hence their love of remixing indie & pop songs & turning them into dance floor gems. They have always been into all aspects of popular culture & come from a background punk & dance music, street art, fashion & style. The DIY ideology has also played a large roll in the birth of Punks Jump Up & has constantly been driving them to make more music but also to set up their own record label & clothing brand.
Defined by alternate beams of light and dark, Eleven:Eleven balances the celestial voice of Sicca with J.Childs’ grounded production. Together, the illustrious pair tinkers with genres such as ElectroDisco, Synth pop and indie dance, ultimately rising above the distinctions to create a magnetism of its own.
Eleven:Eleven’s soundscape reveals deep, arpeggiated beats skillfully charmed by Sicca’s provocative lyrics. The end result is retro and avante-garde, classic and futuristic.
The Gays invented House music so they could dance. God invented dancing so the Gays could figure out who they want to take home with them. Mouthfeel was created to facilitate all of this. Mouthfeel is a queer disco odyssey currently featuring DJs The Ivan Party and Divorcée with that tall drink of chocolate milk, Ursula, serving as the hostess.
