This is the ultimate breakdown of information about tomorrow only here or on facebook.
So Cal native Jonwayne is an integral member of the LA beat scene’s second generation whose music has been bouncing between the walls of Low End Theory for months.
Originally involved in the local underground music community as a spoken word artist and rapper, Jonwayne soon found himself at the Airliner on Wednesday evening for Low End Theory. After experiencing a mind-blowing night at the club, the young artist dis…covered new creative inspiration and started making music. A tape of his raw, sticky and blunted beats made their way into the hands of Daddy Kev, and soon Jonwayne’s debut full-length album Bowser was born.
From DJ’ing at the now infamous Future Primitive parties to running his own Change the Beat weekly in San Francisco for nearly 5 years, Mophono (also aka DJ Centipede) has been an unsung mainstay of the Bay Area, CA electronic/hip hop DJ scenes for some time. Fresh off of both an appearance on The Gaslamp Killer’s latest Death Gate EP and live at his 10/10/10 Brainfeeder Session in Los Angeles, the beatmaker and crate- digging aficionado has releasesd a full length LP entitled Cut Form Crush for his own label CB Records.
Benji’s sample digging and break hunting roots stem from the era where DJ Shadow was “Entroduced” and vinyl was the only way to DJ; as Mophono, he specializes in the art of dusty drums and heavy synthscapes. Cut Form Crush presents an expert take on the escalating west coast beat scene with 14 tracks of formidable compositional styles that beautifully weave together all sorts of musical breeds – the wide-ranging influences of music concrete, B- Boy culture, classical string arrangements and dirty jazz drumming can all be heard throughout. “Cut Form Crunch”, which was created from a live studio session with the luminary Flying Lotus, is completely exemplary of the album’s hard edge drum machine crunch and odd rhythms. After a listen to the album, the unique stamp of Mophono’s skillful past and future in music becomes exceedingly clear.
Having performed at the Brainfeeder festival (Flying Lotus brain child) and shared the stage with Amon Tobin, Edan, DJ Food, DJ Krush, Dabrye, Diplo, Gonjasufi and De La Soul and many others), Mophono is poised and ready to present Cut Form Crush, his finest and most all-encompassing statement.
