Image: 1600834 CB Records is proud to announce the new 7” single by Mophono
and The Gaslamp Killer titled “Murder Man (CTB vol 1)”, the first
installment in the limited edition vinyl series based on the legendary
San Francisco party Change The Beat. Founded in 2006 by
Mophono, The Gaslamp Killer, Citizen Ten and Aspect McCarthy,
CTB was known as the most forward thinking weekly showcase in
the world, Hosting acts like Flying Lotus, DJ Shadow, Madlib, Slum
Village, Edan, Mono/Poly and Eprom. The party description says it
all, “Dirt Wave & Rock Electronique, Thug Jazz & Riot Funk, Psyche
Madness & Funk Rock layered with the hardest instrumental & Dub
beats from around the world!!!
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.
