Death Grips
Death Grips
Experimental rap-noise duo Death Grips, consisting of Stefan “MC Ride” Burnett and Zach Hill formed during late 2010 in Sacramento, California. The band soon dropped the highly acclaimed mix tape Exmilitary featuring the standout track “Guillotine”, Time Out NY’s #1 single of 2011. From inception, the band has received unparalleled critical praise from tastemakers such as Pitchfork, NME, Spin, Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, and more, while being featured on countless “best of” lists.

In 2012, Death Grips followed up Exmilitary with their full length debut, The Money Store. The album builds on Exmilitary’s unique punk rap sound and explores new territory with standout tracks “Get Got”, “Blackjack”, and “I’ve Seen Footage”. The album quickly solidified the band’s position as one of the most intense and visceral bands around. Death Grips was named the most legally downloaded band on the internet for the first half of 2012, racking up an impressive 34 million downloads on BitTorrent.

Delivering on the promise of putting out 2 albums in 2012, Death Grips dropped No Love Deep Web in October for free online. The album was streamed over 100,000 times in the 24 hours following its release. The sonically intense music, coupled with provocative album art was received with unprecedented critical and commercial attention.

Pictureplane’s “Thee Physical” will be released July 19th on Lovepump United. Since the release of Dark Rift in the summer of 2009, Travis Egedy has been spreading his scuzzy, deeply sexualbrand of 90s house & trance to become one of the most prominent figures in American DIY culture.

Two years in the making, Thee Physical is a giant step forward for Pictureplane and is sure to be one of the most exciting releases of 2011.

Based in Denver, CO, Egedy resides in the notorious rave-punk-house Rhinoceropolis. Thanks in large part to Pictureplane’s legendary shows at Rhino, his raging club night, “Real is a Feeling”, and his constant stream of mixtapes and remixes, Denver’s vibrant DIY scene has started to morph into a national movement.

Egedy’s growing influence can be felt in ways that are both trivial and significant: Pictureplane’s punk rock-like approach to the production and dissemination of his work is democratizing electronic music the same way the Ramones, Minor Threat, and Black Flag liberated rock music in the 70s and 80s.

Produced and recorded by Egedy and mixed/co-produced by Jupiter Keyes of HEALTH, Thee Physical is a celebration of human touch in a digital world. The album is also unquestionably Pictureplane’s best and most assured record to date: his vocals are confident and unnervingly sexy, the instrumentation is at once both purely electronic and surprisingly human. Pictureplane has managed to make electronic music deeply emotive—a synthesis of the human and the machine both in lyrics and sound. Summer 2011 belongs to Pictureplane.
