Modulations is a feature-length documentary that traces the evolution of electronic music as one of the most profound artistic developments of the 20th century.
By cutting back and forth between avant garde composers, Kraftwerk’s innovative synthesizer drones, Giorgio Moroder’s glacial Euro-disco, Afrika Bambaataa’s electro-funk and Prodigy’s current worldwide superstarstardom, Modulations ‘celebrates the nomadic drift of the post-human techno sound’.
“We are not entertainers, we are sound scientists.”
“The Roland TR-808 drum machine inspires musicians around the world, even though the device hasn’t been made since 1984 — and most of its avid users have never actually seen one.”
The Egyptian Lover & Arabian Prince – live on Dublab’s “Sounds of Symmetry” Proton Drive (11.22.10)
“What does it feel like when two legends mesmerize your ears at same time? Well let us start from the beginning. The Egyptian Lover and Arabian Prince’s camel train pulled into the alley outside of the dublab HQ under a blazing Sun. In the desert heat their harem was swirling sensuously, gold silks flapped in the wind and incense smoke curled sweetly through the air. Soon our studio was bumping to the sounds of these dual rulers of the electro-funk realm. The speaker boxes blasted hieroglyphs and other ancient codes into the air. Each beat came alive like a cobra swaying to a song of divine circuitry. With the royalty in full control dublab’s studio glimmered and shook gloriously. This was not an momentary flash affair. It’s here forever like the pyramids. So listen up and become entranced by these spells. The Egyptian Lover and Arabian Prince are here to invoke immortal energy.”

Sacramento, I have a new gig coming to The Press Club showcasing that 80′s Funk with a splash of Freestyle thrown in.
“FFFreak!” starts 9/20 and is a night I’ve been wanting to do for a couple years now but just didn’t know with who and where. Well now the stars have aligned and I linked up with some cool people and we have found a home for this baby. This venue gives us the opportunity to bring in guest Djs and acts as well, hope to see you out Sacto!
