Just finished my remix of the Jojo Mayer / Nerve track "Triptych" for the Blend.io #remixcontest. Pretty banging stuff and fun to experiment with chopping up another fellow live #drumandbass drummer's beats and make new nasty patterns. Have a listen!
A peak into the amazing RYAT show last night at the Bootleg Theater as part of the LAX festival with myself on Drums and MAST on guitar. RYAT is playing inside the cube controlling #ableton, playing keys, effects, and singing. Performing music from her new Album "AltMode" on Unspeakable Records.
Today is the Day. The new album Pyramid Razed on the Blend.iolabel is available on all of your favorite downloading and streaming services (Itunes, Beatport, Amazon, Spotify ....) . Check it out, leave a good review, tell a friend and thank you for all the support!
Tonight I'll be playing at Los Globos with dear friend and long time musical partner in crime RYAT for her album release party for "Alt Mode" on Unspeakable Records. We'll be playing "power duo" style with RYAT on vocals, keyboards, #ableton, and other sound effects and me on drums. Certain to be a special night with lots of great music and I'm very excited to be a part of it!
A few years back, I left my longtime home of NYC while in somewhat of an existential personal and musical examination and relocated in Southern California (a place where I had no roots or connections). While I wasn't sure what would happen next at the time, it quickly became a time to re-invent who I was as a musician, drummer, and music producer. Once on my own, I started making short #abletonlive video performances and posting them on YouTube and quickly my new direction wa...s set. 400,000+ views and plenty of hours experimentation later things have gone full circle and I am finding what I am doing now as a perfect extension of what I have always aspired to do. Now with so many of my lifelong musical compatriots trickling out West, the seeds of what I planted many years ago are starting to bare beautiful fruit. With the upcoming release of my solo record on September 18th and other inspiring collaborations, I would love for all of you, my longtime fans and supporters, to subscribe to my "NoServiceRequired" YouTube channel. Check out the video here for a 1:00 minute preview of the live Controllerism #futureDJtechniques, #Drumming, and production tips. A heart-felt thank you to all of you and stay tuned for the best yet to come!
Many thanks to Liquid Geometry for having me as part of their #beatcinema series last week. What an amazing environment to debut the live version of the music from my upcoming N Sifantus solo release #pyramidrazed on the Blend.io label. The official release date for the record is set for September 18th. Much more to come. #itbegins #LaBeats
Tomorrow night I'll be doing double duty in Pomona; I'll be opening up the event with my solo show, then will be joining my man MAST to close it out.
The first in a series of videos of #liveremix performances of the music from my upcoming release #pyramidrazed on the Blend.io label. For those in the Los Angeles area, the debut live show is coming up on August 6th. More info to come.
Happy 4th weekend! I just recieved the final masters from my upcoming solo album "Pyramid Razed" on the Blend.io label, slated for release later this summer and am very excited to share the first teaser samples of this project I have been working on for quite a while. It's musically a bit of a departure from some of the more "genre-specific" productions I have worked on over the past few years. Stay tuned for more info on the specific release date, upcoming shows, and live videos of this new music.https://blend.io/nsi…/beyond-the-mere-physical-stems-project
Hi Los Angeles area friends. Tomorrow night I will be joining my man MAST at the coolest night in town (imo) Low End Theory at The Airliner as part of the release of his new EP on Alpha Pup Records. I’ll be playing crazy acoustic drums in a computer like frenzy of broken cymbals and multiple hi-hats with Mast doing live controllerism on #Ableton, as well as guitar and keys and special guest Josh Johnson on sax. Will be an awesome night of Live electronica, #FutureTrap, #NuJazz, and otherwise crazy beats. Love to see you all there!
Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there who are holding it down, being there for their family in all the "traditional" and ever-changing new ways. Some live beats from the @nsifantus sound pod.
