Keys n Krates


Keys N Krates is an electronic band from Toronto, Canada. The band consists of Adam Tune (drummer), David Matisse (synthesizer/keyboardist), and Jr. Flo (turntablist).

The band formed in 2008 with a goal of bringing electronic instrumentation to life. Drummer Adam Tune says, “We are referencing everything from classic house music to Timbaland in our beats. They have toured extensively throughout North America. In 2013 the band released their critically acclaimed EP titled “SOLOW” which was released on Steve Aoki’s label Dim Mak Records.

Unlike many other electronic artists, Keys N Krates perform completely live, using only drums, keys, turntable and live sampling.

Keys N Krates successes has earned them spots in some of the world’s biggest festivals like Lollapalooza, Electric Zoo, Ultra Music Festival, Osheaga, and Sonar Festival to name a few.

 

* YING YANG TWINS *

Ying Yang Twins

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ying Yang Twins debuted in 2000 with the single “Whistle While You Twurk”, which was played on urban and pop radio stations and peaked at #17 on the US R&B/Hip-Hop chart. They grew even more famous when they toured with Juz tha King, Kat Nu and Demo Dil on the tour called King Me. Their full-length debut album, Thug Walkin’, came out later that year.

Immediately after discovering fellow Atlanta hip hop artist Lil Jon, A&R Bryan Leach began talks with representative Michael ‘DJ Smurf’ Crooms about signing the Ying Yang Twins to TVT Records. Protracted negotiations meant that a deal was not finalized in time to for the label to release their next album, Alley: The Return of the Ying Yang Twins, which instead appeared in 2002 on Koch. The album was successful among hip-hop fans in the Southern United States. The same year, the group appeared on the album Kings of Crunk by Lil Jon on the single “Get Low”, and the song was a huge club and radio hit. As Crooms had negotiated only a one-album deal with Koch, the duo was free to finally submit to the advances of TVT, who had impressed them with their recent work with Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz.

A new album U.S.A. (United State of Atlanta) appeared in the summer of 2005 as its singles “Wait (The Whisper Song)”, “Badd”, and “Shake” were dominating popular music and rap radio stations, and U.S.A. (Still United), a collection of outtakes, remixes, and collaborations similar to My Brother & Me followed in December 2005. It too was accompanied by a DVD featuring music videos and other footage from the U.S.A. (United State of Atlanta) period.

In 2005, D-Roc and his younger brothers, Mr. Weeny, and Da Birthday Boy, formed the group Da Muzicianz and released their first single, “Camera Phone”. Their self-titled album was released on February 28, 2006.

Displaying their quaint and bucolic maritime themed living room in their MTV Cribs appearance, they boast of “having da paintin”, “the fish”, and “the boat”. D-Roc grunts, “HANHHHHHHHHHHH!”, a number of times throughout the episode, leading one to question if his behavior is staged, or if it’s how he acts in real life. D-Roc and Kaine make a point that no women were allowed to decorate their home. Further viewing yields the “Kichon” (sic), where D-Roc displays his culinary staples, consisting of Crunk Juice and Ramen Noodles.

The episode ends with a tour of the vehicles the Ying Yang Twins own, consisting of a customized 1990 Chevy Caprice with “Tweety Bird” on the interior, as they “Go bananas” when they ride.

It’s that time of year again! Mojostock is just around the corner, and if you want to ensure a spot on one of Indy’s biggest events of the year, this is the only guaranteed way to make it happen!

It’s no secret that we do a lot of events and book a lot of talent over the course of the year. But we can admit there can be holes in the system in which we use to book said talent, and many budding artists and DJ’s could be getting overlooked. This is why we want to put together a Mixtape Competition, with BLIND JUDGING, so there’s no playing favorites, no spam, no complaints. (Who am I kidding? There will always be complaints – but you get the idea).

 

 

 

 

 

 

Winning Mixtape will be awarded:

- Mojostock Booking (Main stage – Date/Time Slot TBD)
-
Headlining slot at Altered Thurzdaze.
(on a mutually agreeable date once winner is selected)
- $100 cash
- Potential to open for a national act at one or more of Indymojo’s events.
(depending on coinciding music genre that makes sense for available headliners, mutual agreeable date, and some restrictions apply)

Second Place Prize:

Mojostock Booking (Stage/Date/Time Slot TBD)
– Altered Thurzdaze booking (date TBD)

Third and Forth Place Prize:

– Free ticket to Mojostock
– Will be considered for Mojostock’s 3rd stage.
– Altered Thurzdaze booking (date TBD)

Mojostock

We want to set a few simple guidelines:

1. Create a new mix (30-45 minutes in length).
All genres welcome – PLEASE NO TOP-40 commercial crap. Be creative. Don’t insert anything that will reveal identity, such as a name drop.

2. Put it on a CD/Audio quality disk or thumb drive. (Mark them so I can notate who is came from. Judges will receive anonymous mixes)

3. Give the mix to me (Matt Ramsey – You can find me at any Indymojo event) by March 19th.

*For regional mixes, contact me personally.

Mixes will be assigned a number and securely logged in for identification purposes.

Judging:

- Entries will be duplicated and given to 5 judges of various music tastes and experiences, who have no knowledge of the entry creators. Judges TBD.

- Judges will rank the entries based on track selection, originality, and technical ability.

- Winner will be announced by April 18th.

GOOD LUCK!

DotEXE at Spring Awakening – Chicago

Scott “DotEXE” Stanley, an electronic music prodigy, was smack dab in the middle of studying computer programming when he typed his last command — “.exe” — and never looked back. He has since adopted this mysterious moniker as his DJ alias and this 22-year-old is now one of the fastest growing underground electronic producers of 2013. His Meg & Dia’s “Monster” remix has achieved viral status, accumulating over ten million views in just over a year. Despite his remix success, Stanley, a member of the growing Monstercat family, prides himself on originals, including “Run Away From Me”, “Kill It with Fire”, and his latest, “Hipster Cutthroat”. With a wide range of tempos and addicting melodies, DotEXE is breaking sound barriers at a venue near you.

Greensky Bluegrass

IndyMojo & The Vogue present:

* GREENSKY BLUEGRASS
Kalamazoo, MI

Greensky Bluegrass

Greensky Bluegrass

If you’re familiar with bluegrass music, then you’re tuned in to some of what Greensky Bluegrass does. They’re also known to throw a great party, rock n roll, and (if the critics are to be believed) they have great songs. They are unquestionably a team of friends that traverse the country making music they enjoy. What makes Greensky different than Bluegrass? Poignant rural ballads about real people? Dobro tone that Jerry (Douglas or Garcia) would love? Distortion Pedals? Grit and attitude from a whiskey soaked card game? Indeed, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

This quintet from Michigan has been staying up late at all the coolest festivals and stopping to play your favorite clubs and theaters across America for 11 years now. Nearly 175 shows per year has prepared them for the rigorous task of continuity. Greensky Bluegrass isn’t slowing down. “They’re coming to your town to help you party down.” Yeah. Really. Like you never thought possible.

At the start of the millennium,some of these guys met, then they met more guys. They thought Greensky was a clever name for a bluegrass band. Fast forward to 2011 when they recorded their fourth studio record, called Handguns. Among them, words like, “proud,” “killer,” and “damn right!” have been spoken in regards to the music of Handguns.

While they all may be accurate, we hope you’ll find far more than you expected, hell – even more than we expected contained in this piece work that may well come to define one of 21st Century America’s hardest working musical ensembles.

indy mojo street team

As we work to grow the Indy Mojo Stream Team, it recently occurred to me that we’re looking for a very specific kind of person to fill the job. I think sometimes street teams are made to seem like any ‘ole body can and should join them. That’s true in some cases, but I think Indy Mojo is looking for something more committed right now- something more involved than hanging a few fliers whenever your favorite bands come through town every 3 or 4 months in exchange for tickets to those shows.

I used to love getting mail from The Reverend Peyton and hanging show fliers for The Big Damn Band around town. I used to participate in the Wuhnurth and Springfest chalking contests. That level of activity was fundamental in carving a niche for myself in the local music community. I got free tickets for those events and had fun doing the work with my friends in return… and I got to meet tons of cool people along the way.

– Danielle Look
Music Editor for Indymojo.com

 

Chalking for Springfest tickets in 2009

Indy Mojo is searching for the kind of people who enjoy and actively participate in those kinds of events- and view them as opportunities to advance in their long-term professional goals. We have roles for people who can be engaged on a regular, recurring basis and are actively looking to fill them. We love our fans and supporters dearly and couldn’t do what we do without them, but also I know that we have fans and supporters who want to have a greater purpose and are willing and able to give their time and energy to be a part of our loving, supportive family.

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Promote, discuss, and share upcoming local and national shows (social promotion online, flyering, and word of mouth),
  • Participation with setup/teardown of the promo table and stage set at Indy Mojo shows
  • Spreading the word of who IndyMojo is and what we do on a daily basis, and
  • Encourage interaction with the Indymojo.com website and ticket contests.

 

As you can see, it’s not as leisurely as sharing events on Facebook and flyering at your convenience. It’s an operating model of the saying, “Work hard to play hard.”

If this is something you’re interested in doing, or would like more information, please email our Street Team Manager, Jackie Pingul, at Jackie@indymojo.com

INTERNSHIPS

If you’re looking for a way to shine a spotlight on your craft (writing, photography, art, etc.), practice your hand at event organization and promotion, earn college credit (if you’re in school), or otherwise put your passion for the local music scene to good use, check out our Internship info and email our Promotions Manager, Gwen Wilson, at Gwen@indymojo.com!
