Change The Beat
Mophono x The Gaslamp Killer - Murder Man 7" vinyl
The first installment of a limited vinyl series from SF party, Change The Beat.
The Gaslamp Killer and Mophono have worked together for over 10 years since their first meeting behind the turntables at a Halloween art party in San Diego. GLK and Mophono have consistently thrown back the boundaries of music and DJ’ing from the early days of CTB to working together extensively on GLK releases like Death Gate, Breakthrough and now this grimy new single Murder Man.
There is an emerging vocabulary that accurately describes this experimental genre that Mophono calls Dirt Wave. The A side, with the surprisingly upbeat rhythms to the screeching breakdown at the end, “Murder Man” smashes a futuristic yet vintage sound that can be heard all over this new release. “Xposure” on the B side, is definitely not shy either. From freakout screams to the distorted bass and chaotic b-boy drums, this is definitely not for the faint of heart.
