In 1995 Matt Porter went to his first Rave and instantly knew that he had found where he belonged. For almost 15 years now Matt has been DJing and helping out the underground electronic music scene in various ways. He started by helping to create a magazine named Stellar Awareness and then a few years later he opened a clothing and record store in Indianapolis, Indiana named Univibe. Over the years he has also helped throw many electronic music events. The largest one was named YesFest and was held in Southern Indiana back in 2000.

Here now in 2011, his focus is back to his true love, DJing. His music is rooted in house, but his sets contain a mix of anything with a heavy bassline. This consists of a lot of electro house, mixed a little dubstep and breaks, and some old school speed garage.

When you come to see Matt Porter be prepared to dance, cause he loves to see the crowd moving.

* Psynapse vs. Kodama
Indymojo // G-9 Collective
(SPECIAL BOOMBOX AFTER PARTY SET)

A mutated duo borne from the roots of a mighty tree in the middle of a forest. These tree spirits are ancient and wise, offering healing magic, wisdom and insight. Tree spirits act as the guardians and life force of the trees. Responsible for nurturing and growing them, the tree spirits are keen to share their wisdom regarding the care of the planet, particularly that of forests, woods and the wildlife that dwells within. They are also excellent healers, and leaning against the trunk of a tree can bring about great restorative powers.

Tree spirits are not entirely bound to their tree; they can venture a short distance away. Legends tell of folk becoming unsettled in forests at night, because of the tree spirits stirring and walking about the woods.

* Wes Clay
Indymojo // G-9 Collective
http://www.facebook.com/pages/Wesley-Clay/185128864831307

With an intense attention to detail and an elaborate library of electronic music and personal productions, Wesley Clay incorporates both the technical and collective sides of DJ culture. His collegiate background in audio engineering, MIDI programming/digital synthesis, and live sound reinforcement all contribute to his choice and selection within the studio and DJ booth. Wes exhibits an impenetrable style of mixing and blending within his performances which compliment his confidence behind the decks. His consistency and commitment endures to a degree of always impressing his audience and individuals alike.

* Neighbz
Indymojo // G-9 Collective
http://indymojo.com/g9

Neighbz discovered his love for electronic music in the late 90s early 2000 era thru the Saint Louis, MO rave & club scene while attending college there. Currently, Neighbz now resides in downtown Indianapolis, IN. He started making appearances in 2010 at local events such as Keepin’ it Deep, Juxtapose, and Indymojo/G9Collective parties playing a mixture of Deep House, Soulful House, and Lounge. No matter what the venue Neighbz smooth mixing & sexy beats always brings that underground House Music vibe!

Indymojo Presents: Altered Thurzdaze w/Eumatik

Altered Thurzdaze Eumatik 3/31/11 Indymojo.com and G-9 Collective are proud to bring you these rising stars in the Indiana Music Scene….

EUMATIK
http://eumatik.com/
http://www.facebook.com/eumatik
http://eumatik.bandcamp.com/

Eumatik is an original mechanism whose musical concepts are unparalleled in the realm of live electronica and dance music. What makes their approach to music so interesting is their ability to allure the listener with catchy hooks, slowly lead them outside their accustomed musical boundaries by means of developing harmony, and finally bring them back within a single composition. This is accomplished by fusing a diverse variety of musical techniques that range from jazz theory to 18th century counterpoint. Although their music is thoroughly composed, it contains lengthy sections of improvisation that make every live show unique. Eumatik brings elements of hip hop, funk, trance, jazz, dubstep and disco into ideas that reorder the perception of its own genre-based facade by tastefully covering an incredibly large range of musical concepts. Another important aspect that contributes to their thumb-print sound is their mix of vintage keyboards with ultra-modern sound design and synthesis.

As much of their focus off-stage is spent organizing and maintaining a focused outlook on each composition, they’re constantly looking for fresh and innovative ways to use music technology as a tool for improvisation. When Eumatik is on-stage, they strive to keep the crowd dancing while making sure everything is melodically and harmonically interesting at the same time. While performing, the overall form and direction is controlled by Josh Lockwood, who utilizes Abelton Live along with an Akai MPK and APC. Jazz pianist, Ashton Kleemann, is constantly playing signature parts on various keyboards along with a MIDI-keyboard that Josh runs Ableton effects through. This MIDI-keyboard directly interacts with what is being played live to create a bizarre and unique atmosphere of band member communication. Mix in the organic sounds of their live drummer, Derek Shelton, and you hear the UFO-summoning, twist-bopping, trance-inducing, disco-fever-catching sounds that are Eumatik.

With support from….

* Jeremy Daeger (Breaks)
Indymojo/G-9 Collecitve

For 10 years Jeremy has been tearing up the dance floors all over Indy. He found that mixing hip-hop with breakbeat really got people out of their seats and shaking their asses. Jeremy has played along side of DJ Icey, Baby Anne, and the Breakfastaz just to name a few. He is not one to leave the dance floor empty. Hard hitting, in your face, breaks with a smile.

* Psynapse (Dubstep)
Indymojo/G-9 Collecitve

Nicknamed “Dubstep Jesus”, this messiah is arguably the most prolific Dubstep DJ in Indianapolis. A Juxtapoze regular, Psynapse likes to lead his congregation through a web of dirty bass-lines and womp wobbles that can convert even the casual listener into a fan. Through natural humility and notable talent, Psynapse has certainly made a name for himself in the last year, playing at Underground Sound, headlining festival stages at Mojostock and Oranje, not to mention the many one-offs, after parties, and monthly/weekly residencies with Indymojo/G-9 Collective, Juxtapoze (Indy), and Perpetual Entertainment (Fort Wayne). He’s not one to be taken lightly.

Indymojo Presents: Claw of HULK

Indymojo.com is VERY proud to bring Altered Thurzdaze one of the fastest rising stars in the dubstep scene for FREE….

CLAW OF HULK
Play Me Records // BroTown Records
http://soundcloud.com/hulk
http://www.hulkstep.com/

Hulk is a collaboration of Claw & Richie August, two creative minds that share a similar production style and enthusiasm for heavy bass driven music. After meeting at the 2009 Winter Music Conference in Miami, they began to send files back and forth to collaborate on projects in Dubstep, Hip Hop and Electro. Since the inception, Hulk has been catching the eyes and ears of artists such as The Glitch Mob, Dieselboy, Reid Speed, Reso, The GasLamp Killer, High Rankin, iwrestledabearonce and DJ Lord of Public Enemy, among others.

2010 saw Hulk’s first official release, dropping on Reid Speed’s Play Me Records as a Beatport Exclusive. Forthcoming releases on Foulplay, Shift, and Play Me Records are already creating a buzz around the duo. What’s more, the recent launch of their own record label, BroTown Records has the scene begging for the slated releases to drop, featuring tunes by Veelk, Bukez Finezt, Rsk, Lonestar, as well as tunes by Claw, Richie August, and Hulk themselves.

Claw emerged in Houston, Texas in 1999, at the age of 15. He was well-received from the start, making contacts with the local rave DJs of the time. By the time he was 16, he was playing at some of Houstons bigger underground parties and weekly events. After graduating high school, he moved to Florida to pursue music as a profession and began playing at weekly events. After finishing his music engineering studies at Fullsail in Orlando, Claw made his way across New York working at numerous studios with various engineers and producers. He then moved to Las Vegas to pursue his record label with Trillbass, which he co-founded. Claw also just did an official Dubstep remix for Wu-Tang that debuted at # 7 on the ITunes Hip Hop chart, and is currently back living in NY to run his art gallery and record label ventures.

Whether in the studio or on the stage, get ready for the biggest bass in the game!

Indymojo Presents: Altered Thurzdaze w/Skeetones

Indymojo.com brings you another hot installment of ALTERED THURZDAZE……

With special guests…..

…* SKEETONES

Cincinnati, OH

“So call them Jamtronica. Call them Live Trance. Call them ElectrorockternativeimprovworldjazzIDM, if you want. Like the music itself, there really are no words. But if you enjoy the way modern artists continue to tinker with the perceived limitations of Electronic music, you might just end up calling Skeetones your new favorite band.”

-Mike Breen, Cincinnati City Beat

Skeetones bring a new generation of music to the Midwest’s electronic landscape. While programmed tracks lay the foundation for songwriting, the music comes to life during the band’s energetic performances. From chopping acapella samples to wobbling bass lines, Skeetones create on-the-fly remixes of their own songs without using a single loop or backing track. They continue to emphasize their live take on sounds such as acid house, hip hop, downtempo, and dubstep, all while keeping sight of their multi-instrumentalist and improvisational foundation. They have shared stages throughout the Midwest with bands such as Pnuma Trio, Umphrey’s McGee, Flying Lotus, The Macpodz, Big Gigantic, and Papadosio. This cultivated ensemble continues to accomplish the seemingly impossible task of entertaining the thinking mind and the dancing feet alike, leaving listeners reformulating their conception of live electronic music.
